    I'd be tempted to get some black paint and tape off and paint an inch or so under the trim so you don't have to see the waterline. So instead of higher waterlevel, get a lower trim line.
  2. Dr.Fraggenstien

    Just a badly designed tank. Even if you plumb bean and use it to raise the water level (which you can), your surface level will be above the slots on your overflow, meaning no surface skim. One might not think skimming the surface is that important, but it is. You'll have problems from all the organics collecting there.

    Something seems off... Are your overflows leaking?

    7.4 is way low, like dissolving coral skeleton low. Seems unlikely. Calibrate your probe lately?

    Worrying about .1 is the very definition of chasing numbers. It's crazy talk IMO. There are better things to worry about. As long as you're not tinkering yourself into problems... For clarity, I don't see a problem with what you're doing, or other options such as running an outside airline, I just don't think it's necessary in your case. Stability is key with our little pieces of reef, sometimes resisting the urge to "tinker" is in the best interest of the tank. I also see plenty of newer reefers worry too much about exact numbers. They spend a ton of time and effort trying to achieve the "recommended" ideal levels, and can end up causing themselves lots of problems, or burned out. This hobby has an extremely high turnover rate. This is a huge part of the reason.

    Save yourself some headache and don't worry about pH if the rest of your parameters are in order. 8.0 isn't too low, plenty of very successful reefs out there that are regularly lower.
  13. Dr.Fraggenstien

    I don't see the tank size having anything to do with it. No one, vendors included, temporarily house fish in systems that meet the "recommended" tank requirements. It's not practical, and not necessary. It is necessary for the system to be able to support them biologically though, which sounds like it wasn't the case here. Ammonia spikes kill fish, everyone knows that. I don't see the vendor liable in any case where the customer water quality results in the death of the livestock - ever, never, ever, ever. As for the customer, he made his bed. If you're going to publicly blast a vendor and potentially impact their livelihood, you better have your shit strait or be prepared to get blasted right back.

    First one is a sunset monti. Next 3 are acropora sp. (none look like any trade named ones I'm familiar with)
