  1. The art should be in the tank guys...

  2. I use a filter cup and a sock. Since the sock clogs after like 2 days there’s still decent flow through with the cup. I put chunks of filter pad into the cup that way it’s still catching some stuff. I turn them inside out when I take them out to gather any snails that have found their way down and put them into a bucket. When I get about 6 I will rinse them out and put them into a bucket of bleach water. After a few days I take them out and rinse them and hang to dry. I have about 12 socks to rotate.

  3. I have had such great luck with Danner mag pumps I would have to agree with that recommendation as well as utilizing all bulkheads as drains. Depending on water level that sump holds about 20 gallons correct? I’d shoot for about 10 times through the sump per hour so you don’t get bubble issues. The head loss curve charts are available most online places that sell them. Assuming no crazy height or a ton of 90’s in your plumbing I’m guessing you end up with a mag 7 or 9.5. You can put a valve on the exit side of the pump and trim down the flow if needed.

    Gyre Programming

    Share your gyre programming... I have two Maxspect Gyre Pump XF330 in a 90 gallon tank. I've tried running both pumps on the sides vertically, and I've tried running both pumps on the back of the tank. Current Setup: Right side pump - Horizontal Left side pump - Vertical Programming wise I've tried both OGC, and LTC cycles with no luck. Current Programming: On a Side note: The person that designed and approved the Maxspect controller should be lined up and shot

  12. Ya it was $20 more for the dual one as opposed to the gas so pretty easy choice. Plus I have about 5 propane tanks at any given time around my house due to grills and having a camper so in a pinch I can pop on of those one.

  13. I just bought a generator from Home Depot. They have them on sale for $299. 4,000W dual gas/propane. Its like $250 off right now. I need mine more for my house than my tank but i can def hook up a pump and heater and a light if I need to. For those that have thousands of dollars in their tank I see that as a reasonable 1 time insurance payment

  14. I'd assume I'm at 6 - 7 times turnover an hour after accounting for head pressure. I have the ability to go up to almost 15 times. I agree with Joe, lots of differing opinions out there. I definitely think you can have too little, but I don't feel like you can have too much within moderation. Between 4 and 10 seems to be the sweet spot for most. I think it mostly comes down to preference and the capacity of your equipment.

    Generator

    I have a generator and wouldn't be without one. with no heat you can still heat water up, put them in containers and drop them in your tank.

    Generator

    My generac standby will run my whole house as well. And it’s natural gas so no worries about keeping it fueled up. I also have gas fireplace upstairs and a gas heater in basement in same room as my tank. Just have to open a basement window if I get to the point of needing that heater. Will drop the ph to low.

  40. That’s why I put some other funds in to e-trade to get the process started. So when everything is squared I can do a swap out as the market allows. Lol.

  44. Someone on the Ohio reef group went around to every store and is trying to resell them now for over $300.. that is wrong in my opinion but understand its perfectly fine to do it. Guess Ill throw mine up for sale when the markets runs low. Pretty fish but Ill take the money for what I bought it for. I normally stick to $50 fish or less so if they die it doesn't hurt as bad lol

  49. This year I started qting fish due to them not doing well going right into the 275 gallon. So far so good. I don't use copper, I use Rally and Kick ick and just watch and make sure they are eating well. https://humble.fish/community/index.php?information/ has good info on qting. I do keep a molly in my tank because they are great dither fish, they seem to put the other fish at ease. My 30 gallon qt tank gets 2 gallons changed each day (auto water change from my frag tank goes into it, then goes through overflow and down into sump)
