  1. 100% new to the hobby...

    I got a flurry of excited texts today from Sakky aka John.. he scored a small setup today It is always so nice to talk with people that are so new and excited about everything. I should have had him scrape coraline of my tank... lol. congrats John and welcome! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. 48" ATI Powermodule 8 bulb

    I'm thinking about it. It's a sweet unit but i am having a hard time convincing myself it's worth the money Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. didn't loose any fisg. salt tank is still in the basement of the old house for right now. need to do some work here first :( I did learn this though... I will never ever NEVER move a big aquarium again. easier to sell and start over. think i'm wrong? grab a couple full buckets of wet sand and carry them up and down the stairs. let me know how that feels.

  4. yes.. I sistered the joists and put some screw jacks under them. I moved our whole house and 6 aquariums yesterday. beyond tired. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  5. lol. the 8 footer is going to replace two 100+ gallon 4 footers. I set it up and filled it at the new house today. to say that i was nervous would be the understatement of the century. I hope to have this tank upstairs with sump and frag tank in the basement. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  6. ummm. I'll be buying that been staring at your CL posting for days, just figuring out where everything goes in the new house txt sent Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  7. Let's GO!!

    I admit I was definately all jacked up to see his face bashed in and then they stopped it. I dont think that ref ever witnessed an mma fight. knocked out or tapped out.. that's how it should be (at least when you are taking home that much cash) Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  8. Let's GO!!

    why was it a let down? it went 10 rounds.. it wasn't a total mayweather carnage show. I thought it was an entertaining fight although it was stopped waaaaay too early. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. New Alk Monitor Joins The Fray

    I heard from a reliable source that many new controls that will blow the Apex out if the water ate hitting the market soon. will be interesting to see for sure. IMO, having something that monitors and controls THE most important factor in sps husbandry will really make spending $1,500 on a complete monitoring system worthwhile.

  10. Let's GO!!

    I think the most accurate prediction is that I am going yo end up paying $20/per minute of fighting Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  11. Let's GO!!

    lmfao.... let's see... it's one fighters first professional boxing match and the other guy just happens to be widely recognized as the best defensive boxer ever who retired without losing a fight. hmmmm.. Manny Paquio couldn't even land a decent punch but mcgregor with boxing gloves on is going to go the distance??? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Water flow wizard

    Is 1600gph the real flow or the flow on the box? Fyi my new 240 Is around 3000gph actual flow. What info are you looking for.. pipe sizes? If your setting a beananimal (which are awesome and COMPLETELY silent) I would go with an 1.5" main siphon return. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  13. Big news!!!

    In order to use the service you need to purchase a special sensor for the Apex controller so it's $119.99. [emoji4] Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. would you take $50 for that box of dry rock? Also, where abouts are you located? Thanks!!
  15. Sick Montipora

    Phos and alk is about all I test these days. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  16. Sick Montipora

    I agree with slamming the tank with GFO or phosguard. It's really effective... often times too effective. Keep it low in the tank with decent flow and just let it do it's thing. I absolutely nuked my tank with ammonia accidentally. EVERY coral was bone white. I would have cried if i wasn't soo pissed at a careless move. Anyways, after 3? months 90% of them bounced back and look great, especially the montis. Just keep it stable. It will likely come back. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  17. Rainbows are taking ova my sump!

    Those are beautiful nems for sure!! Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  18. I did a stupid. Ich?

    Great advice ^ I would really look at a freshwater dip or h2o2/freshwater dip if it is covered. In my reading and experience the gills get hammered!! I did a post mortem exam on an antheias that died on me... not a spot on the exterior, its gills looked like it was swimming in styrofoam dust. :( should have posted pics but i was bummed and pissed.

    do you have a timeline? I need some leds for a new tank Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  20. I did a stupid. Ich?

    I was going to say the same about garlic.. great hunger aid but doesn't do squat to cure ich. I have read a great deal about ich and from what I gathered, ich is NOT in every tank. What I learned the hard way is that ich CAN come into the tank on corals, rock, etc. I suffered an ich outbreak as well after getting a ton of new corals. This was after letting my tank go fallow. Not the end of the world, just put ALL your fish in the copper tank and keep them there for 74 days... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  21. Dry live rock

    30 minutes pdx-longview? ....going 90 maybe. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  22. Buying a new house, need advice for moving tanks.

    One thing i was told recently about moving sps frags and small.colonies was to zip tie them to a piece of styrofoam and place upside down in buckets. No need to break sticks during a move. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  23. August Annual BBQ! Swap Meet and Raffles Galore!!

    Sounds great!! In terms of old gear.. if anyone has 6 or 7 feet of 1" spa tubing i will gladly take it off your hands [emoji4] Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  24. ReeFi LED info

    Nice! Aluminum skins would be really nice as well, and yes, i understand that involves a whole lot of designing and sourcing. I have heard more than once "for that much coin i dont want printed plastic housings" Not trying to be wet blanket, just relaying feedback. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Have you thought about making a non pendant style light? From everything i have seen the pendants have such hot spots. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
