  1. In the past the PNWMAS forums website was always reported in web browsers as "Not Secure" since it was not using encrypted browsing (using HTTP instead of HTTPS). Thanks to @TheClark, we are now using encryption, so the site is now reported as Secure:

  2. That’s a solid reactor for pennies. Even if it needs a new pump. They are all the same basic thing, so any you find would run from peristaltic pump.

  6. Set the ph from 6.9 to 6.8. Set the pump at 10 ml/min. Test test test your alk. The only thing you ever adjust is the pump.

  8. Phew!! the other day I could NOT get to sleep. "Why is pnwmas using HTTP?!!!" I simply couldn't stop thinking about it. I was going to text you John but seems like you have it under control.

  9. Clean Slate, Ready for new tank install to begin. (okay, still need the carpet to be cleaned) Tank plumbing goes through the wall, into the garage fishroom. That means a few holes through the wall, and ~20 years of saltwater corrosion on the dry wall. Honestly, dry wall held up impressively, only mild blistering - except where the holes were. New tank, needs new hole locations. Took the tank and stand out Friday night, final coat of paint is now dry (Sunday ~noon). Let the Next Phase of install begin. READY TO GO! (except carpet cleaning)

  11. Remember the light support rack, It's In! I cut slots in the drywall so the 8020 horizontal support bars are mounted directly to the studs. And everything went smoothly from there. I cant bring the stand in, until the stain on the front left corner of the carpet is cleaned. That's the visible spot that wont be under the new stand. Thursday... Thursday.

  13. Tough to tell with all the blues. You need to take a normal daylight pic. Could be something like a Dragon Soul Favia, but can't really tell with that photo.

  14. Good afternoon everyone, I am new to the hobby and have been searching for a place to learn/connect. This seems to be just that place, and after lurking for a while I decided to join in on the fun. I'm originally from the Space Coast of FL and have lived in the Portland Metro area for a few years now. I recently cycled a 32 gal Biocube and will keep it lightly stocked as I continue to learn. The plan is 2 fish, a few inverts, and the rest soft/lps corals. It's a bummer that the meet ups are off with Covid but I look forward to them in the future. Best wishes and stay safe!

  15. look like black banded trochus snails. Could be wrong. They are the most likely to reproduce in the home aquarium.

  17. Thought I'd try Tapatalk, again, this morning...still down. Thought, maybe, I should check if there are any app updates, the app didn't even show up in my "updates." So, I uninstalled the app to find out the 'Tapatalk' app is no longer in Google Play. Hmmm...

  19. Got tired of my lights just hanging there, in the open, so I finally decided to build a floating canopy. Still need to trim and finish it and trim and re-finish the stand but I am pretty happy so far. I added before during and after photos.

  20. I picked them up from Ryan on saturday. I'm going to move them up on the rock tomorrow. They looks so much better with the blues on but can't see anything with them on.

  22. Great thoughts. I had ordered some Tropic Marin Elimi-Phos and dosed it for the first time tonight - tested before using the Hanna = .52, wanted to decrease it about .1 ppm at a time. Just tested = .38. I plan to dose tomorrow and the next day or until I get below .1...then I'll start to track and see how often I need to dose to keep down. Will continue all other maint. practices.

  23. You know they say the devil is red with big horns, I say he might be a cute little starfish. Dip it in holy water then burn it!

  24. All resin is reef safe once it cures. So yeah, I am building a resin "river table" and was just going to pour the leftovers into a little mold. I emailed a magnet company and the appropriate magnets were going to be $120. But MarkV came to the rescue.

  26. Kill it, Kill it quick. Although many people say they have these and they don't bother anything in your tank... I too was in that boat, until they DID start bothering corals. I recently emptied my tank in prep for an upgrade (moved everything to the new fish room frag tanks) and found these starfish on corals in concerning locations.

  28. Question.. do you float this because the weight is bad on the top of the tank? I'm thinking of building one, but was going to rest mine on tank top.

  30. I'm more of the belief it's the pump that's the difference. How many skimmers do you see that are nearly the exact same body style FWIW I run an SWC come, same as reef octopus same as coral vue The difference is in the pump. The original pumped died about 4 years ago and I went with the bubble blaster 5000, coupled with my avast swabbie (neck cleaner) Never a short answer from me 😜
