    Super awesome aussie acropora spathulata

    I'd definitely be up for getting a frag of that piece! I've never killed an SPS coral before "knocks on wood" and if I can help keep this colony going, I'm all in! The frags I got from you a little while back are doing fantastic as well

    Any DIY reef lighting builders on here?

    Perfect! That's exactly what I wanted to hear! Thanks!!!
  3. So I'm planning on using a bluefish mini WiFi controller with the mean well ldd-h drivers for my 180 build. The highest amperage driver they have is a 1500mA one. And I'd need more like 4500mA for the Royal blue channel alone. So my main question is, can you run more than one ldd-h driver off of one pwm channel signal so I can get a total of 4500mA, the outputs of the drivers won't be connected in anyway. I tried to draw a basic of what I want to do.
  4. Height of tallest is about 3.3cm Width is about 3.7cm Macro-ish shot 1. total system volume : 35 gallons 2. what kind of lighting : DIY Full LED, about 160 watts 3. how you keep alk and cal stable : kalkalkwasser in ATO 4. how old your tank is : 8 months 5. rate your tank stability on a 1-10 scale : 8 (have never lost an sps)

    Another DIY Calcium Reactor

    To cut the keyholes, I drilled two holes, the larger one and a smaller one, the third picture down shows this, then I took a compass and drew in lines that connected the two holes together and used a jigsaw to cut out the bits between the two holes, and sanded it down. As far as the acrylic tube, I got this one off of eBay when there was a sale on it, normally $33, but occasionally they drop it too $25. I also call around some plastic shops, I've been able to buy some of there end cuts for just a couple bucks.

    Another DIY Calcium Reactor

    Thanks guys!! Just water tested it for an hour, no leaks so far. I still need to put a ph probe holder on the lid. Not sure where to get one local though. Also need to get a ph controller, CO2 regulator, and a CO2 tank. Anyone ever run just plain old seashells off the beach in there reactor Or is it safer to just go with something like reborn?

    Another DIY Calcium Reactor

    Decided to build my own calcium reactor after doing alot of research on them and ended up with this.I was looking a for a good cost effective build and I really liked the look and simplicity of Geo's reef reactors, but for the size I needed, the price was a bit high, especially since they only came with a.c. pumps. So this one will be able to handle systems up to 300 gallons plus another hundred if a secondary reaction chamber is added onto it. My total cost for everything, including tools and solvent cements was $127.89. (Seems like a pretty good price for a D.C. Calc. Reactor)

    Return pump for 65 gallon

    I've used ehiems, and the newer versions of the dc jebao pumps, both are pretty cheap and quiet. The jebao can be hit or miss though, I've had mine running for 3 and a half years and have just cleaned it twice a year and it's kept it's pressure the whole time. But I always keep a spare on hand.

    WTB clove polyps

    I'm looking for a frag or two of some clove polyps, like these ones pictured. Basically any fluorescent colors.

    Green red planet

    With most sps, they will still grow with less light, the more light will be for color, and possibly quicker growth. Different sps grow at different levels like terrestrial plants, some require full sun and some require full shade but both will grow just as fast and be just as healthy even though they're in different light levels. There are also hardier sps than others.

    Green red planet

    My ORA red planet frag did the same thing, added about 50 watts of royal blue led to my daytime lights and it started getting the red pink color where the light hits it hard, and is staying green in the shadowy areas. I personally keep my nutrients a little on the high side because my tank is mixed softies, lps, sps and it's coloring up very well with the addition of more light. Your rbta stinging it will probably be a factor as well. The green could be from stress.
