  1. hello all, I am looking at lighting options for my new set up and stumbled upon the Reed Breeder lights. BRS and Reef News Network seem to like them but I was wondering if anyone here has any first hand experience with them. Also if any of you have other suggestions of a light that is relatively inexpensive, delivers good par and coverage, send them my way! btw the tank dimensions are the same as a 40 gal breeder. btw if anyone is selling their reef breeder lights specifically the photon 32 V2 let me know
  2. Hello everyone, Its been three month since I start my aquarium and it finished the cycle within two months. Ammonia, Nitrate, and Nitrite are undetectable. I'm ready to add some corals now. Aquarium parameters Ammonia/Nitrate/Nitrite Untraceble to the test kit Temperature - 77 F (+/- 0.3 F) Specific gravity 1.026 What is in my system now Bought BRS Water saver plus RO/DI unit with the RO reserver tank/faucet (I could justify this to my wife DI unit is seperate- Who can resist clean water ) I have 40 lbs of CaribSea Speacial grade live sand ( it created 1" sandbed) and Dry rock from BRS. 50g Cube 8g sump 20g refugium with 20 lb of live sand (Looking for Macro Algae that won't go sexual) 10g RO/DI reservoir gravity fed with a fixed float valve Oceanreview T247 LED 10" above water surface running blue at 100% (0700 - 2200) and daylight at 50% (1200 - 1900) Skimz mini 143 skimmer Eheim heater I do 20% water changes every week BRS media rector (two chambers) Have two happy fat clowns that I bought in 2013 and the aquarium that hosted them have thousands of Ampe/cope pods which I will carefully transfer to the new sump Plannig to add the followings soon 2 MP10's (will this be over kill? and does any one have MP10 that need to get rid of so I can get them cheap) Calcium reactor: Planning to buy AquaMaxx S-NANO Calcium Reactor ( any other suggestions are welcome) Aquarium monitor and control system (Reefkeeper or APEX? How about Seneye?) Since this is a small tank I'm planning only to keep SPS, LPS (may be 2-3) and few Zoas. Following are what in my mind. They are pictures I got from internet and do not know the names of most of them (Can someone tell me the name of these corals). Obviously I won't be able to host all the SPS in my tank. Following are the cleanup crew I'm planning to order. Nassarius snails - 2 Blackfoot Trochus snail - 1 (After 6 months or if I have algae) Blueleg Hermit - 1 Regleg hermit - 1 Cerith snails - 4 Emerald crab - 1 (Tiny one after 1 year or if I have hair algae) Sand shifting goby - 1 (After 1 year. Can I add this guy since my sand grain size is large. Will the sand hurt it?) Papermint shrimp - 1 (After 6 months) I would prefer to buy the coral from fellow reefers. Please let me know if you would like to sell some frags to me. These are the questions I have now Do I need to run Carbon and/or GFO now? Is it ok to add all corals over a short period of time (one month)? Do I need to increase the intensity of my LED for SPS? Am I giving them enough light without causing an algae issue? Do I need to get an algae scrubber although I have a refugium? I really love green manderin gobies.I had one male manderin a few years back that I trained to eat pallets. One day he decided to end his life, after staying 1.5 years with us, by jumping out (I forgot to add the screen) So I want to give another try with one of these guys may be after a year. Anyone knows a place that sells pallet trained healthy green manderins? ​ ​​ Your comments and feedbacks are much appreciated.
  3. Hello - My husband, Damon and I (Holly) just registered today to join PNWMAS and wanted to introduce ourselves. We live in Salem and are Duck fans (sorry to those Cougs, Huskies and Beavs out there) as I went to U of O (been quite awhile!). We enjoy working in our yard/gardens and remodeling and doing projects around our house. Damon enjoys golfing and I love to cook. Our most recent remodel included a reef aquarium setup and we are really excited about having this and a new hobby. The wonderful creatures that make their home in this tank will join 3 cats, and 2 very large dogs none of which think the tank is interesting at all. Obviously we are very new to the hobby. Our tank has been running now for just over two months and is 280 gallons. We didn't jump in lightly but the more we have learned the more we realize how much we don't know, the mistakes we have already made, and often find ourselves wondering what to do. There is so much information about so many topics it really can be overwhelming. Often you find conflicting information and it is hard to know what to do. We hope to meet many of you either online or in person to get your pearls of wisdom and help with many of the problems we are already encountering. What a beautiful thing all of the creatures that inhabit a reef tank are. Makes you appreciate just how complex and wonderful the ocean is. Holly & Damon
  4. Hi All, Just found this forum for local reefers, and as we're in the process of getting our new tank delivered to us, I thought I would get some advice from you. We're setting up a 240 gallon display tank. It's dimensions are 72" X 24" X 32". We'll have a 90 gallon sump in the stand, I'm unsure of the complete diminsions there. My main question is this: for those of you with tanks close to this size, did you reinforce your floor? We're in a two story home built in the early 90s, and I know for a fact the tank will span at least 6 support beams (we've been in our crawl space). We've been planning the tank portion of all of this for over a year, and now I want to make sure we're not going to ruin it by having it fall through the floor ???? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
  5. Im looking at setting up my older 30 gal biocube and wanting to kinda stay cheap on the lights, does anyone know of a cheaper LED light that has legs that would be able to go over the tank? It currently has a metal hailide that i do not want to be using, and im trying to stay cheaper on this.
