    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

    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

    Skebor's C-Vue 40 gallon

    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.

    My least favorite part of a build

    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

    Skebor's C-Vue 40 gallon

    Today when i get home from work, i will begin the stand planning/construction. The stand isnt going to be anything special as there will be a built-in office desk in the future that will have a section to house my tank. I also get to have the dreaded re-addressing with the boss... i mean my wife, as to where in our house i can place the tank. Hoping to have the stand done and begin placing components this weekend. Also, I have been tossing up the idea of a seeded cheato reactor with one of my pumps running to it, and then back to my tank. Would the flow in the reactor be too much for pods to live? I want some sort of refugium to mature for pod provision for a future mandarin. I have always felt that pods that go from refugium through a pump and into display get killed in the process. So a way to pump water into the refugium/pod home and then flows into the display seems better. Any ideas or feedback would be greatly appreciated! Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Hello everyone. I have been lurking around the forums for a while. Figured i should introduce myself. My name is Justin. I live in Southern Oregon. I have been on again off again in the hobby for the past 3 years as my family and I have moved a number of times. We are now in our forever home, so I'm planning my permanent build (permanent... hahaha). I will make a build thread. Please check it out as I consider myself a newbie still and will need advise.
