  1. I'm glad this found a home. It was pretty awesome when I saw it!
  2. My first treatment absolutely Eradicated the Blue Clove Polyps. (they're actually very pretty, my family loved them). But what remained with this ugly 2nd strain - which I assume the Blue Clove Polyps were hiding.
  3. Perfect. So how can a normal user tell if a USB cable is 2.0, and specifically without a repeater?
  4. I couldn't find my source for this information (I think it's on the neptune site) - but Apex cables are NOT interchangeable with regular USB cables. (I think it's about impedance or resistance). And my source pointed me to this company for Apex built long USB cables. https://www.usbfirewire.com/search.aspx?searchterm=apex Long USB Cable for Apex Long USB Cable for Apex Controllers These are pre-built custom USB cables specifically made for use with Apex Aquarium controllers. We get many requests to build these special cables, so we've decided to build a few to keep in stock. *These are guaranteed to work with your Apex Aquarium controller.* They're an A Male to A Male, and as you can see, we have them available in very long distances, and each of them will work with your setup. We use dual ferrite beads on each one to help ensure that the connection isn't interrupted. Not for PC use Please note that these are made only for Apex Aquarium controllers. These specific cables will not work with any series of USB. If you do need a long USB cable for your PC, please check out our USB 2.0 repeaters and repeater cables. Many are in stock and available to ship today. Call us today if you have any questions.
  5. I just added this reply to an 18 page thread on R2R about killing Blue Clove Polyps. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/eliminating-blue-clove-polyps-with-fenbendazole.308994/post-6954867 I'm reposting here, looking for local insight. My Battle is now Brown Clove Polyps.My history: (120gallon display tank) I treated successfully for Blue clove polyps in March 2018 using Thomas Labs Fenbendazole, following MaxDraco instructions. But in spring of 2019 clove polyps were back. Not Blue, but clove. Re-treated Fenbendazole in June 2019, at approx 1.5mg/gal. And Added second treatment of ~1.5mg/gal two days later. Punch line, my Non-blue clove polyps never fully died. My made up name, I now have "Brown" clove polyps (picts below) Since then, An aptasia eating Filefish didn't touch them A Regal Angel didn't touch them Twelve emerald crabs didn't touch them One Tuxedo Urchin doesn't touch them, although B(rown) CP's are on the side of tank Urchin doesn't go I'm ready to give it another go and I'm looking for collective wisdom. try the Double Tap 2-4 weeks apart up dosage to 4mg/gal perhaps switch from Thomas Labs to Merck Safeguard Goat Dewormer, (10% suspension) Under idea maybe drug itself is slightly ~different? Otherwise, any other collective wisdom?Does ANYONE claim to successfully remove Non-Blue Clove Polyps (but same size as BCP's) by Non-Mechanical means?Thanks!
  6. Seven bumble bee snails added to my existing (10g) frag tank. Thanks @CuttleFishandCoralfor hooking me up tonight.
  7. Bumble Bee Snails! Okay, how many would you put in a 10gal full frag tank. How many would you put in a 50gal frag tank? And if the Vermetid snails are mature, is there a size the Bumble Bee's won't go after?
  8. Foxface, yellow eye Kole - love them - Algae control Yellow Coris Wrasse - pest control, Red Coris Wrasse seems to grow Big, and then get aggressive Other suggestions for Frag tank Fish? Anything I can add to help control vermetid snails? (fish or not fish)
  9. My walt disney was originally on a shelf high in the tank wall. (First picture, next to Oregon Torte.) I assume it's now getting lower light, it's sitting on the floor of the tank. Water motion is a different story. The shelf gets flow, but from the other side of the 4' tank. (thus indirect flow) The bottom of the tank get's direct cross flow from an MP40 about 2' away, maybe 4" higher, but nothing in the way to block the flow. Thanks for the inputs on PC Rainbow's desires. I'll sneak it back into some shadow.
  10. I've been running a small frag tank for a while, and thanks Brian will shortly be expanding to two larger frag tanks. (~50g each) Time to take my Frag Tank Fish choices more serious. I run SPS and LPS corals, but no softies/no shrooms/no zoanthids. What is the collective wisdom for fish to use. I know I need control for Algae, Snails, (pests)...
  11. Can you offer any perspective on size. Am I looking at a 12" across lobo?
  12. I've been following a thread on this reactor on R2R. Just watching how it goes. https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/aquarium-engineering-acr-calcium-reactor.614741/
  13. I don't know the PAR. I'll got a meter, will have to break it out. I'll update in a few days, after I can get it measured.
