  1. I got this a while back but have decided to not install it. $15 pickup in NE Portland.
  2. Hey all - thank you. Items are sold.
  3. Recent threads on these juniors reminded me that I have one sitting in a box. I'm really not sure on prices for this stuff so feel free to tell me if it's off. Apex Junior W/Temp Probe - No Display - $75: Had it for last 5+ years and just took it down a few months ago. EB4 - $75 PM1 No Probe - $50 Let me know.
  4. If you end up still looking then lmk. I’ve also got one with a pm1. Just hanging out.
  5. I've got a used EHEIM 2262 that I no longer need. It comes with all media and quick disconnects etc. I've also got a bag of spare parts like O-Rings, clamps, etc. The only issue is a crack in the back of the pump housing, but that's just cosmetic. $175 takes it. Happy Holidays.
  6. I broke down my last not-drilled tank and I won't be going back. So...for sale is an EHEIM 2262. This is the big daddy of EHEIMS. I had to running on my 180g stocked with frontosa. I have the tubing, disconnects, lid, media, everything. There is a small crack on the back of the pump housing - but no water flows there so never a problem. It was plumbed onto a 180 so if you want to go higher you'll need a few feet of tubing. $200
  7. I just tore down this tank (was used for freshwater). It's a standard black-trimmed Aqueon 180 with the matching black pine stand. Tank is in perfect shape. I've got the glass tops and I also have two pretty new 36" dual t5 fixtures. Probably six months old with bulbs 4-6 months. It's not drilled, and it's tempered, so you're not drilling the bottom. Only issue is the plywood bottom shelf in the stand bowed out from the filter weight, so I put some boards in there. That part is purely cosmetic. Comes with two buckets of aragonite if you want it. A ton of river walk if yo
  8. I just broke down a 180 freshwater tank. I’ve got a bunch of heavy boulder rock and two buckets full of aragonite crushed coral. It will need a good cleaning. Or it could kickstart the ammonia in a new tank! free to anybody who wants it. I’m keeping the brute.
  9. Interesting. I've been having a hard time keeping my PH up for about a week now, but I wasn't really connecting those dots. I didn't switch anything and now I'm hovering right about 8.0 with lights on, and dipping to 7.8-7.9 overnight. I never really open any windows, so that didn't change.
  10. I've been losing connection like crazy. It's not an issue with Fusion, it's my dumb internet. Wifi just keeps dropping down there. I'm going to run a cable from my modem straight to the socket and put an end to that nonsense.
  11. One thing I learned a couple years ago was that you need a special setup if you want things to kick on during a power outage. I'd love to go with solar panels and a Tesla battery on the house. It would save money and have the battery backup. Just $$$.
  12. Yeah did you see the process? Someone posted it on R2R. It's pretty intense and I think it only measures on the low side. But I guess it's a start. Going to be pretty nice in a few years when you can set it and forget it.
  13. Heyo Mods - if this isn't allowed then please remove. But.. I did a bit of advertising work a company called Klarna - and they're doing a thing today/tomorrow where they give stuff away. One of the prizes is a BRS package - I have no clue what it will actually be. I'm not at all involved with any of that or who wins or anything. Anyway - I figure some of my fish friends here might try to win and it would be cool if they did. https://smoooth.klarna.com/aquarium/
  14. Heyo. You’ll very much enjoy having the apex. You can usually find decent deals on used units either here or on other sites. You can get an older model jr for pretty cheap but you’ll eventually want to upgrade. My advice would be to get the apex el and go from there. That will probably run you $400 used. You can get an older model for probably 200 but it won’t have WiFi and that’s a major plus of the new units.
  15. You can certainly choose to live with whatever unwanted pests you want in your tank, but I think it would be pretty low-rent to not to at least tell someone if you're selling a frag or fish or whatever. I think a general rule of thumb would be that if you're wondering if you need to tell someone about something, you probably should. I didn't QT much the first time around and after the tank crashed while trying to go fallow, I decided everything would get QT'd moving forward. So now I've got two QT tanks and everything goes in. Inverts get 30+ days (which might not even be enough), and fi

    Yeah I'm debating whether to glue it back together or use the little pieces as new starts around the tank. I've got a lot of empty spaces that could use the coral, but that was also the big centerpiece coral. I might put a few pieces together and move the rest...best of both worlds.

    I have a pretty big frog spawn. Well. I had a pretty big frogspawn. I was moving things around last night and I guess I wasn’t supporting the base enough because it broke off and then I proceeded to break multiple heads off in chunks as I fumbled around to glue it all together. the bad news - my large frogspawn is no more. The good news - I have five chunks of 4 or 5 heads each. I guess I could glue it all back together but now I’m inclined to spread it out around the tank and grow more. So let this be a lesson to everyone - don’t mess with your tanks after a six pack.
  18. I used the flexible PVC tubing you find at hardware stores. The stuff I found was black, and very thick. It works with PVC glue quite well. I will say - that if I had to do it over again I'd probably just run more elbows and keep it all organized with the standard PVC. The flexible stuff was hard to work with and I feel like there's always a bit of tension in the lines because it fights to bend itself back. Does that make sense? BRS did a video testing the pressure/flow loss of elbows and it was minimal. Plus, it looks way more organized and you can keep things out of the way.
  19. Wait - just for closure. Was that not at all the item you bought, or is it just different than the pictures?
