    moved to want to buy section
  2. a good dual stage (not dual guage) regulator isn't a whole lot cheaper but yes and in my opinion a lot safer in the long haul
  3. @Sevitz5 I run a 10lb tank on my 300. Lasts me about 9 months generally. I also would not go with the carbon doser for concerns of failure/end of tank issues. For peace of mind I would always go with a dual stage regulator. once you get it set up pressure is stable and so is bubble count until the very end of the tank. but instead of dumping the remainder like a single stage would, it slows. if your using an apex, it will notify you of your ph being too high and your still safe. Honestly if you have the apex control your reactor ph, your bubble count is irrelevant as it will maintain it there regardless. Theres a thread around here somewhere where I did a write up about using a reactor. @Jon Fishman where were you a few weeks ago when I was hunting for a kegerator! already bought one now....got any fancy handles you wanna part with send me a pm!

  5. I plan to get one still, im not gonna sit on a waiting list though. When theyre actually in stock ill buy it Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  6. I would have to say there are several shows on my favorites list....as far as all time favs I would say Kenny vs Spenny, and south park. Most of you probably haven't heard of the first one, but that show made me laugh more than anything else ive ever watched. South Park is right behind it though. Honorable mentions go to : Game of thrones, Westworld, Gotham, Family Guy, and American Dad

    I can attest personally that tangs can be jumpers. My big boy desjardini has always likes to splash around a bit at the top....the braces for my 300 actually stick down into the water and theres always a little snack up there growing. I wasn't home for this but thankfully the wife and kids were, but he not only decided to jump out, but behind as well. She had to use some creativity to find something to reach back there and get him back in the tank, but successfully rescued him. he looked a little banged up for a week or so but haven't heard him splash since
  8. Theyre pretty tough corals, I cut a whole bunch of those into multiple pieces with my frag saw. Cut right through the coral and into the rock. if you chip away at the rock to relocate it, you wont have to worry about it growing back unless you leave some behind, and it wont stress it like cutting.
  9. looks like some kind of anemone from what I can see, but a hairy mushroom is also a possibility. Still hard to tell from the pics
  10. I have run a tank without a skimmer, but it always does better with one in my experience. Aaaaaaaand i dont like doing water changes, so theres that.
  11. I voted for the t-5/ap700 combo.....but honestly I would never spend that much on a single light. you can achieve amazing growth while spending far less money. The t-5 are great for filling in between spectrums that leds miss, but Im done with changing bulbs every 6 months.
  12. Ive had lots of cuts and stabs. I don't know if you guys count it but when I was taking apart my 300 to reseal, I cut my index finger down to the bone. I was going to superglue it, but the wife said no, made me go to the urgent care. Turns out that was almost what they did anyways. The skin was so thick they kept bending the needle before they could get it through. In the end the trip was worth it, because my wife learned that even the pros will glue a wound shut
  13. Not that hinge specifically, but that style hinge is becoming quite common now and you can buy them at home depot. shouldn't be any big deal to use another similar one, since they are hidden inside
