  1. Yes please close. I’ll post a new ad for the remaining equipment. Thanks
  2. The Premium Aquarium had their internet and phone taken out from the ice storm. I couldn't contact them. I would have driven there had I known they were open. I did everything I could with a generator, but it came a day late. I've suffered a long power outage before with a reef, but a bigger reef in a bigger house with better insulation. I thought I had several days or at least 2. If I had insulated the tank, probably would have made it. Our ETA for power returning kept getting delayed, adding to confusion. Clownfish were dead and tank 44 degrees after only 36 hours. At least I was already try
  3. This is so cool guys!!!!! I'm excited to be able to contribute something of value to the community. FEEDSTORM!!! That is a great automation for a controller and wonderful you took the time to walk us all through the advanced programming. In a year or two, FEEDSTORM might be a common reef term. 😀
  4. NanoCube 28 gallon for sale. SALEM OREGON ALL fish and livestock gone. 200. Includes the all in one tank, custom lid, the stock tank stand, and all the filters and pumps to keep it going, even a custom UV sterilizer. Many many extras included. I want the tank gone ASAP even tonight would be best. Our power just came on for the first time in a week. I had to offload all the fish and corals to a local reef sitter if anyone wants to contact me for those. The tank is going to start to stink tonight as the house heats up so please the sooner the better, I have priced to
  5. Power came on an hour ago. Tank is getting warm again and starting to stink as I will NOT be plugging it back in. I was already trying desparately to sell the tank and make room.

  6. Thanks @jadams7. Nice guy, sorry to meet at such a difficult time. Hope all is well considering.
  7. Our power has no estimated time of arrival currently. PGE says it’s got too many outages to tell. I’ve got a son due to be born any day now and I need to be available for my wife and kids, not doctoring a reef tank during our second natural disaster in 8 months. Fire and ice. Please someone make me an offer for some super cheap corals and clear out my tank. I’ll make a good deal on the entire package, make me an offer.
  8. I’m in downtown Salem. Been trying to sell last few corals and then 28 gallon tank, but ice storm and power out and 42° inside are killing things. Clownfish died overnight. I need help rescuing corals that also need re-homed. I’m concerned that starting my tank back up now will only spread the death around the tank. Please help.
  9. SALEM, OREGON I have to sell my entire setup and get out of the hobby for a season to make more room and time for another child on the way. Really love this aquarium for 4 years plus, but family comes first. I am needing to sell all my corals and inverts first and my equipment last. 28 GALLON NANO CUBE AND STAND WITH ARTFULLY ACRYLIC CUSTOM LID. The tank will likely be a package deal and come with all extra pumps, backup pumps, Wavemaker, heater, food, and any or all supplements and accessories that aren't coral or fish. Lots of extras, many include original packaging. The tan
  10. My nano cube has a pair of ocellaris clownfish who are making eggs about every 10 days. I am unable to setup a fry tank, and feel bad letting them simply feed the reef every 10 days. My top 2 options are: 1. Sell or trade clownfish eggs. I researched and think I can simply put a small tile or rock in the spot where they lay them. It has been the exact same spot in the tank 3x now. Looks like they sell online for $22-45, so $20 seems fair to me if you come to Salem to get them. 2. Might need to sell or trade the clownfish to someone ready to handle a breeding pair.
  11. So a week ago my Cobalt Neo Therm heater went bad. I noticed my acans were turned inside out one afternoon so I checked the thermometer and got a major scare when it read almost 90 degrees. I immediately checked the heater and saw it was (and still is) stuck in the 94 degree maximum read zone. I am very fortunate to have found this during the afternoon and likely it had slowly crept up to bath temp over several hours. I unplugged the heater (obviously) and used my emergency reef ice cubes and room temp water to get it back to 80 in about an hour or so. My reef was unhappy for a couple days, bu
  12. Very cool. To note, it’s not an hour of work, but 10 minutes of work and an hour process to do it. If I’m ever able to upgrade to an automated system I will try something like you have set up here. One of the few things I see different in our equations is the amount of time the water fans are on. My tank is 28 gallons and I do water fan for ~20 seconds, just enough time to pull the food off the floor and give it a chance to fall into a coral mouth again. That being said, if you have 300 gallons you may need several minutes to stir the water up and get the food off the floor? Try and see what w
  13. Very cool! Fun competition and gave me something to do during isolating times. Congrats back @CoralReefTankers. Thanks for all you do @badxgillen. I’d love an LPS or something branching and or SPS. Possibly hammer? I had a tank complication last week that really threw a wrench into things. Many corals died. Many/most are damaged. My acan is alive and mediocre. A week ago it was massive and thriving like everything else. I’ll need to wait a few weeks or month for everything in my aquarium to heal before I add new stuff to it.
  14. It’s my targeted spot feeding. It’s nearly an hour process. I turn all water circulation off and target feed each mouth in my tank with precision with frozen food slurry and turkey baster. Then I wait 20-30 minutes, and turn on water fan without the pump running. This turns the tank into a snow globe of frozen shrimp. Then I turn the water fan off and let everything settle again. Repeat process a couple times before circulating the water with the pumps again. It essentially target feeds everything 3x within the hour, but would be difficult to do in a tank larger than 30 gallons. My acans
