  1. Vipar Spectra black box size something or other grow light. It's not that it puts out much heat, but that my tank starts to climb in temperature once my house gets above 73 degrees. My (3) Reefled 160's and (4) T5 bulbs are adding the heat. After setting up my new tank last year though, I've had trouble keeping my phosphate and nitrates up so don't run the fuge very long. And my giant new badass skimmer helps with that too.
  2. I have tried all of the above over the years. I run reverse schedule just because my current system gets by with only 5 hrs on. Heat management is a deciding factor for me, as well as anecdotally my calcium reactor.
  3. Um, well yah... I just got these new Kef R3's set up, and a new turntable, listening to a couple particular albums for the first time again on vinyl in 40 years. It was a pretty moving experience. And yes, a fair bit of sativa and beer in the mix...
  4. Wow. Those are all absolutely amazing!
  5. Great video! I’m going to look that dude up and see what else he’s put out.
  6. I'm still not understanding how people apply these with Herbie and Beananimal drain systems (i.e. every friggen tank out there with a sump). The Trigger Platinum sump appears to have two drain inlets for their roll filter, so that makes sense to me. But none of these aftermarket standalone products have method to connect two drains.
  7. Streaming for right now. Just signed up for Amazon Music HD to give it a try. Really getting sucked into needing a turntable. I still romanticize about the process and enjoyment of albums from my past. It's an experience in and of itself, in addition to the music. Dang, I just sold myself!
  8. Dang, I had no idea that things had become so esoteric! That headphone video blew my mind. Hard to believe there’s a market for products like that. I’m excited about my new measly NAD receiver and Monitor Audio Silver 300 speakers. Funny how one persons high end is another’s marginal entry level!
  9. I'm getting back into hi-fi after 20 years or so, and have been researching in different forums like ours. I feel like an outsider Costco dad in their forums as I try to read their pages of info on subjects I'm looking at. Crazy! Feels pretty cool to fit into our local forum, and feel like I've got useful input and can actually understand the words coming out of everyone's mouth!

    That looks good Jim! I used the Marco cement stuff and found it worked awesome if you got the mix just right. And just right is a pretty narrow window
  11. I’ve got a corona LED light. Super popular name right now. But the PAR output is insane compared to what my radions were
  12. The beauty is that the problem is temporary. Believe me, I’ve sat at my sump for an hour or so (several times) emptying my skimmer cup into a bucket until it finally calms down. Make up a 5gal bucket of new water to replace as the process goes on. Good times!
  13. My guess is that there was residue of some sort in the new sump. Did you wash it out first? Maybe throw a small bag of carbon in there until it works itself out
  14. Holy cow! Those are ALL full blown colonies! You’re killing me smalls...
