  1. Just placed an order! Thanks for the phenomenal deal! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  2. Grats - you'll be happy with your purchase. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  3. Not sure on warranty - have to check the manufacturer's site for that. I personally run a C2C overflow with a BA drain (s) and two 1" returns. Pic attached - excuse the mess! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  4. I have a 135g and use the DC-9000 and run it at about 90%, but it still moves a massive amount of water. In hindsight, I'd get the DC-12000 so that I didn't have to turn the pump up quite so high, but over the course of 2+years the pump has been rock solid. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah, I enjoy the tangs. Really interested in a semi reef-safe butterfly, perhaps a pyramid? Anthias are out, remind me of freshwater fish for whatever reason, lol.
  6. Well shame on me! It looks like it has been a long, long time since I have updated this thread. And depending on how you look at it, quite a few changes have occurred, namely tearing down the tank and starting over! Much of the equipment has stayed the same, but I did cook my original 100# of rock in muriatic acid (quite an interesting experience), I have ditched the 55g sump for a 100g Rubbermaid sump, added an additional 50# of cured live rock, replaced sand - and well, basically started fresh again. I'll get some new pics posted as I could have sworn I posted some of these previously, but nonetheless, I'll get some coming in the next week or two. As for my original reason for posting - I need some stocking ideas! I've got a general idea of what I would like, but it's nice to get input for that 'aha, I didn't think of that!' moment. Current inhabitants: Two-Barred Rabbitfish Mated Pair Ocellaris Clowns (One orange, one black) Blue-Leg Hermits, Scarlet Hermits Cerith Snails Lettuce Nudibranch x 2 Wish List: Powder Blue Tang (will add last) Yellow Tang Flame Angelfish Fairy Wrasse Shrimp Goby (no particular species) And?????? Plan for this tank as before, is a mixed reef, probably LPS dominant. I have zero corals/frags at the moment as the tank is just coming out of a terrible GHA bloom from the initial cycle. Water parameters are testing good, GHA is rapidly receding, so I think we are moving into the next phase of tank maturity. Let me know if anyone has any ideas - I'm open to suggestion at this point, and the wife and kids are providing their own input as well. Would love to see what we can come up with collectively. Thanks!
  7. FRESHWATER! Selling my nearly new Finnex Planted+ 24/7 SE 48" LED light. I purchased this light brand new 2-3 weeks ago, and since have decided to pursue a different route with lighting. Light works great, fully automated, still has original packaging. Paid $145 for the light, asking $125 OBO. Local pickup in Toledo.
  8. No, I would certainly cherish that. However, in this day and age, I must imagine that having a brick and mortar store dedicated to SW would prove to be very difficult. Maintaining adequate, healthy stock in clean tanks while trying to be cost competitive must be very difficult. Unfortunately, I can't sacrifice my own tanks health to be supportive of those that aren't maintained properly, so it's a bit of a double-edged sword. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  9. Funny you say that, that's who I was looking at after I posted this. I typically use another site (won't mention names out of fairness/respect), but their customer service has become horrid and they cancelled my order, so I'm moving on. I'll give Aquarium Depot a try - thanks! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  10. Unless things have changed, I'd rather jump in acid, lol.
  11. Hello! As the title suggests - can anyone recommend a good place to pick up a CUC? Looking for mostly Astrea/Cerith snails (avoiding Turbos and Nerites), a Fighting Conch, and perhaps some Blue-Legged Hermits. I'm trying to eradicate a massive hair algae outbreak since restarting my tank. Thanks!
  12. They do, and I bought some [emoji3] Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  13. Awesome deal... Wish I was closer! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  14. So.... While my clownfish sit in their 40B waiting for their forever home to cycle, they have decided to start spawning again. I'm dangerously curious, and close, to try and cost myself more money and raise the fry. For about 100 bucks I think I can get up and running... However, what do I do with them if/when I am successful? Anyone know of anything/anyone locally? I don't seem particularly fond of parting them out 2 at a time, and I certainly don't want to dispose of them. Having a reliable outlet will help me decide if I should raise them or just let nature take its course.
  15. Thanks for the input... Looks like it's pretty unanimous for the dual 250s!
