    Slowly working on the canopy. Hope there’s enough room. Also worked on the scape some this morning. I’m as close as I’ve even been to being happy with it. If I didn’t touch it again I could live with it.

    There are lots of old style Apex units out there for very reasonable prices as people continue to upgrade to new. That is probably the most possibilities for the least money right now in my opinion.

    Overflow question???

    Thanks for the suggestions. I cut the pipes so that when the pump is off, they are nearly under the surface of the water. With the pump on, they are a couple inches under water. No more gurgling. And a lot less splashing. I think I could dial it even more. But it cut the noise in at least half.

    Bristletooth Tomini Tang

    This was my first tang purchase. Tom is still kicking it with me. He was the king of the 60, and the low guy on the totem poll in the 120. My yellow tang seems to be the boss out of my four (Tomini, Fowleri, Dussumieri, Yellow).

    Bristletooth Tomini Tang

    I had one of these once, was a “rescue”. Went to buy something from a guy and he had one. Said it was beating up everything in the tank. Including tang 3x it’s size. So he gave it to me. Never had a problem with it bullying anything. Was a really nice fish. This is on my stock list for the 120. Going to add him and 2 other types of tangs last.

    New aquarium robot?

    So after a long year of very few updates, it appears there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. They put out an update today that says they are assembling by hand to establish mass production procedure. Then they said at the end of next week starts chinese new year, so no production for 2-3weeks. But added that backers #1-100 will have products shipped. I am # 38. I dont know if this means before during or after chinese new year but im hopeful! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Overflow question???

    I think @Fisher is on to something with tuning the flow. Best solution is to eliminate the air instead of trying to manage it. Dispersing bubbles make tons of salt creep and headache!

    Hey, so we moved and had a baby! Now I finally feel ready to get My 90 gal tank back up and running! But I want to make it as easy as possible. Looking to redo my sump system and possibly automating some stuff without breaking the bank. What do you guys use/ suggest? I would like a sump that comes with lids?

    Overflow question???

    He’s obviously getting air trapped in the pipe. If you look at a lot of tank drains they are cut at a 45 angle to allow air to escape. So I asked if his standpipe is cut at an angle. The same thing applies to the drain part of it. If you can cut the pipe at a 45 with the top of it right below the top of the surface it may help air escape.

    Thanks. I got a reply from Paul at Neptune after I expressed my frustration with product availability saying to give him a call because he may be able to help me out with it so we will see where that leads! You are really going to like that icecap gyre! I’ve had great luck with the 1000 size. Looking forward to watching it get rebuilt!

    The still aren't selling them by themselves again yet, they started bundling it for xmas with the apex, or wavs, or dos/ddr. was available most of the weekend I think. Id bet this coming weekend it will be available again if they are still getting in 12 a week like before

    Well, its been a while since ive updated this! Big changes are coming for 2020, but probably not as fast as id like. The last year has been issue after issue for my tank, and I decided that I will be combining a fish room remodel with a tank reboot. The wife wants the back bedroom of our house cleared out, and to do that I will need to relocate my rodi, and salt mixing station along with downsizing the frag tank. It took a lot of contemplating on where I could make space to relocate these things, to make it all work. I finally had the idea to turn the front hallway and closet into a fish room, that is directly behind the tank. This way I can move the sump outside of the stand for easy access and cut out the wall behind the tank to make water changes a breeze. This should also contain a lot of of the humidity I battle with in my house since I evaporate about 6 gallons a day between the tanks. Work recently cut hours down to 5 8 hour shifts, instead of the 60 hour weeks I normally work, so hopefully I should have the time to knock this out reasonably quick. In addition, I should have earned the club a nice kickback from marine depot since I finally got an in stock alert and purchased some goodies. pics coming

    Try cutting it at an angle. What do your pipes look like in your overflow. Are they angle cut?

    Thanks for the info @Fisher & @RockyProndoa. I’ll cut it down and see if that helps.

    Overflow question???

    Cut the pipe close to the surface to give the air a chance to escape once it is pushed down the pipe. Given the length of the pipe currently, I imagine you have an air lock that is banging around inside the pipe. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Before setting mine up I had read you're supposed to keep it only a few inches below the water level as it prevents gurgling and splashing. Worked for me.

    They are still all doing great. The peppermint shrimp has hunted down every bit of aptasia that i had and destroyed it. Snails are turning over the sand more and the big snails are cleaning up the rocks. Still got a ways to go but this is looking to be a good start. I would recommend this place.

    Alright. Things seem to be going well for now. Flowing good. ATO is hooked up. Salinity is spot on. Cleaned out the sump from all the mess that was going on. Dosed ammonia chloride today. Ammonia is reading 1.5ppm. Would like to see it higher. But will dose check it daily and try to keep it as close to 2ppm as possible. But the fish less cycle is under way.

    Well, I feel like an idiot. So I go to the hardware and purchased everything I needed to fix this “cracked” fitting. I pull it out and notice it’s not a crack. It’s just a piece that was from the molding process. So I’m think we’ll where is it dripping from? Reach up to the bulkhead and it moves. The bulk head wasn’t even hand tight. So disaster diverted. Good thing I have my receipt.

    This is 10 minutes in the frag tank. Polyps already extending on a few, sorry they are a little fuzzy, my acrylic got etched a bit from coralline there. Btw this is done under full blues with 10x macro + yellow and amber gel filters and 0 edit

    Been in bed most of the week. This flu is kicking my butt. Just got up some energy to test the ammonia. It’s @ .15ppm. I’ll check it again tomorrow and test nitrites as well. I did cheat a little. But can’t see the cycle being close to being over yet.
