Evil Damsel (5/15)



  1. No A/C at my house so I have a chiller I picked up used that gets use maybe a few times a year. Also a generator in case of power outage. Outside of those options a few blocks of ice in a zip lock bag or bottle and a battery backup for a circulation pump and bubbler if loss of power. Lights probably depends on what your running, I'm using LED so power use is low and heat output low and I personally wouldn't feel the need to turn them down. If your using halide that's a whole different story 🥵 Someone else might be able to chime in about how dropping to 50% might effect the coral but also probably depends on what you have.
  2. Awesome, just wondering 😁 Been looking at the nero3 since it came out, here's hoping 🤞🤞
  3. Do I get two extra with a "family" membership?!? 😁🤷‍♂️
  4. 24 tickets for Nero 3 (22 for $40 + 2 for contributing member)
  5. Two tickets on the battery backup 😛
  6. Nice looking tank I'm in Longview
  7. I just recently purchased a inkbird and it's been working great, highly recommended.
  8. IMHO, I think the first thing to consider is how is all your livestock doing? It doesn't look like anything is too far out of whack, I'm not sure about chasing a 'perfect' pH. Mine is running in the high 7's but was in the low 8's before the fires.. everything is still doing great and growing so I'm not going to make any major changes or try to 'fix' it. My alk is dropping slightly but I've added a bit of livestock recently so it was to be expected and making slow minor adjustments to my 2 part dosing schedule. Water chemistry will change, it does in nature.. I personally think keeping reefs is about managing large swings in chemistry and not overcorrecting, creating even more problems that will need to be corrected again.

  9. Returned the PAR meter thanks, sorry about the delay on return
  10. Yeah, if you wanted to pay shipping I could ship it.. should be pretty hardy to ship almost anywhere, where are you located?
  11. bump, still got some of these left, the macro has grown a bit.. I'll be at CnC sometime this week as well, still TBD exact day let me know if you want any photos/info/etc.
  12. I've already started over 🤣 For me it was not having to do 20+ g water changes and using a pipette instead of cup measuring to dose so I went with a nano. Bad part is obviously it's a nano and needs a pretty constant monitor and to be very precise about everything.
