  2. Im thinking about it. Its a joke anymore... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. Anyone have any experience with these? I got one for Christmas and it worked amazing... for two weeks... then the controller burned out and melted. I sent it back to xp aqua for warranty and got a new controller/sensor. When i plugged the new one in nothing happened. So I warrantied the pump this time. Now with a completely new system, I set it up today and waited for evaporation. Nothing... the alarm sounded letting me know the water level was low, but the pump didnt fill my tank. Anyone have any advise? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. Dang, that sucks! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  5. It works pretty good. Took a little to get it tuned in though, and the top of the bubble chamber separated from the bottom when you would adjust the skim. After a little acrylic glue it works great. Collection cup is small so i would make surebto have tubing and a larger container. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  6. Here is my DIY media basket. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  7. So it seems I have forgotten about my build thread. A lot has changed with my tank. Livestock as follows: 1 prawn goby 1 carpenters wrasse 1 firefish 3 flame cardinals (christmas present that is turning out to be trouble) 1 coral banded shrimp 3 emerald crabs Corals: Hammer coral Trumpet coral Galaxia Orange mushroom Pink floyd chalice Cali-tort Silly string Palys that i dont remeber the name Bali green slimmer Neon green monti Bi-colored monti And a red acro that my fish guy told me the name but i forgot (its like red martian or something). Most of the corals and fish were Christmas presents from family. It was a lot more adds a lot faster than i wanted, but everything is doing great. I bought the 3d printed filter sock caps for holding filter floss from 3dreef.com. I got a Icecap K2-50 skimmer in the left chamber and have 2 good sized bags of marine pure in the chamber with the pumps and heater. The right chamber is getting a media basket that I made and will use as a refugium. I am running a duetto ato with a 5 gallon bucket that I fill with 1 gallon of kalkwasser and 4 gallons of rodi. For flow i have the Jebao sw2 turned to 4. The return pumps provide a lot more flow than i expected. Right now i have a pretty bad algae problem. Im hoping chaeto will help remove whatever nutrients is growing the algae. My water parameters are 77.5°f, 8.0 pH, no ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, or phosphates. Salinity is 1.027, alk is 10dkh, calcium floats between 380 and 420 depending on the week. Im dosing Seachem reef trace once a week. I feed once a day at dinner time, and only enough to be consumed within a minute. Anyone have any advise on combating the algae? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  8. I like this too. Its hard for me to commit to the club because I have an issue of isolation being located in southern oregon. Its hard to find other reefers. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. Merry Christmas to you as well! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. That was hilarious! Thank you for sharing that! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. That is so aweaome! At like the 2:09 mark it looks like something even smaller is crawling around the top right of the white space. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. I will be rinning a mixed reef. I have never really been good with sps, but I do plan to try again. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  13. So I have a good update. I have had my tank running now for a week. I am doing a fishless cycle. I got 40lbs of live rock and about 30lbs of live sand. I ran it for a week with a bottle of bio spira while dosing Tims ammonia chloride to 2ppm. I basically had a non-exsistant cycle as I would dose and test ammonia one night and the next morning it would test to 0ppm. The only "cycle" I saw was nitrites spiked to 5.0ppm. But after a large water change to remove my 40ppm nitrates, I currently have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 0 nitrates. I decided to stop the ammonia additions and I got 10 hermit crabs to combat future algae outbreaks. I will be feeding the tank a small amount of food every other day and will be monitoring everything for another couple days for changes before adding fish and possible corals. My equipment so far is: AI Prime HD Marine pure balls Jabeo SW2 Koralia nano 240 Cobalt 200w neotherm heater Filter socks went back in with noise reducers from 3dpreefs.com Later this week i will receive my icecap k2-50 skimmer as well.

  14. That thing is hardcore! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  15. Yes it does. Hydraulic cement is used to patch concrete pipes that are in use. It might take longer to cure though. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
