    Definitely hydroids. Manual removal and kalk paste is how I dealt with them in the past. They will spread quickly, so don't waste time dealing with them as they'll pester your corals

    Tunze ATO ?

    Why not just put the output up into the overflow on the tank? Would solve the back siphon issue without relying on something else that can fail...

    Pics of the t5 retro kit? Does it have reflectors, and if so, how long are they?

    2x Maxspect Ethereal LEDs with ICV6 controller for sale, $500 for all. I'm upgrading tanks in the near future and need to go a different direction with my lighting. Everything works perfectly.

    Tank turnover......baffled

    It looks right. The only place you'd see the flow is the 2nd to last baffle, and the flow is spread over the entire length, and that looks like a good sized sump. First, test by removing s bit of water so you can see the flow, or add some food to the middle chamber of the sump to see the flow. 2nd, I'd add an elbow to the input of the pump to draw water from lower in the return section. The water level in the last baffle section and the return compartment will always be the same as it's an under flow baffle. The water level in the rest of the sump is dictated by the 1 over flow baffle.

    92g Oregon Reef

    Hello all. After living in Hawaii for the past 5 years, we have moved up to the Pacific Northwest and it's time to get my fingers wet again. I'm a long time reefer, with my last tank being a 225g(5'x3'x2') custom peninsula that was taken down in a rush prior to moving to the middle of the Pacific lol.So, it's time to build another tank, and on a bit of a budget. I've got some items so far, and will list the details as I go. Others I'm waiting on until I find the right deal.THE TANK:I picked up a used acrylic 60"x18"x18" tank I found on Craigslist. For $75 for the tank and stand, I couldn't really pass it up

    Not much to update yet. Frag tank is still not online as s I got sidetracked remodeling a pair of bathrooms. Half way through tiling the first shower. Had to pull the tub to build a shower to take a bit of space from this bathroom to expand my shower a tad. Takes awhile as I'm learning as I go lol. With that being said, there will be a bit of a change with the tank coming up next month 😁 For now, its back to tiling for me...😐

    Is there anything else I can do to fight aefw?

    As I messed up the date and missed the meeting, can someone offer a brief recap here?🙏

    Is there anything else I can do to fight aefw?

    Been there, done that. I set up a 2nd system in the garage and moved all stones there. Dipped before they went in and every 5 days for a month, and let those remaining in the DT starve out. Ducked but is the best option

    Magnesium Use

    BRS is really a 3 part solution, dosed at the same rate, but the mag can be dosed all at once. Not sure that's wise, but can be done lol

    92g Oregon Reef

    Picked up a frag tank. It had a leaky overflow box that was just a bit big to fit the space I had, so it was time to bust out the saw... Then a patch to close up the hole and a few hours of polishing, a new hole in the side for a drain, and voila.. And in place. Still need to plumb it and get a bit of foam under it just for peace of mind and to hide the plywood and give it a cleaner look.
