  1. Ahh bought in when it was about 20k a piece eh? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. Lol when did you buy into it? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. Holy cow thats major. Ok i take it back...let them cut the floor up lol Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Ill say in addition to what Muttley and rocky said i use the foam because im setting my tank on wood. The best sealed wood will eventually succumb to some moisture which can cause some warping. Although i dont think i could have overbuilt my stand too much more, its just a precaution for the long haul. On a side note, usually when someone ends up with foam bulging to the bottom pane its the white stuff, never the pink high density. I couldnt even fathom a situation of the pink stuff doing that after seeing my 300 gallon tank sitting on it. @Joe are you on a basement or crawlspace where you have access underneath? Tearing up to do that seems excessive if you have access from the bottom. If your on a crawl a setup of 4 floor jacks is overkill but it will solidify where your tank sits to the point a herd of elephants could come through and your tank water wouldnt budge the slightest Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. I had to do some serious floor reinforcement for my tank, and so while I was installing the floor jacks in my crawl space I also leveled the floor that way. probably the most solid part of my house now lol. Also used the pink insulating foam from home depot for under the tank to absorb any minor warp in the stand or floor. Its the high density stuff and it barely has an indent where it sticks past the tank. Now on the kids 29 gallon I didn't bother doing any kind of leveling at all

    Light Question

    I don't see why you couldn't use it, as the light can dim down to practically nothing. Not sure how you would set it to make the best spectrum for macros though. I would definitely keep an eye on ventilation getting clogged, I have a dusty house, so the top vent on mine clogs up constantly without the humidity trapped in the cabinet making dust stick
  7. I don't know if any of you folks out there get into crypto at all, but I started dabbling a little with an app called Robinhood on my phone. For those who don't know, it allows stock buying and trading without fees for anything under $25k. It also allows for buying and selling of several crypto currencies. So all of this has led me to discovering a new crypto that's in its beginning phase, with a lot of potential. The app is called pi network. As of right now they are in phase 1 of rollout and so "mining" rates are high, and as more people join accumulation rates go down. They are scheduled to introduce phase 2 before the end of the year which will add a marketplace to buy and sell goods with the crypto So to me this seems to be a no risk/work with potential reward. The only thing you need to do is download, create your account, enter a referral (you have to have one to join) and then log in once every 24 hrs to continue mining. It doesn't use any data or battery life that ive been able to notice. I honestly never really understood how all this crap works, but ive been hearing about it from several friends, and I still kick myself in the ass for not getting involved in mining bitcoin when I discovered it. All that said anyone else around here get into mining or follow crypto currencies? Anyone heard of Pi Network? And if any of you decide you wanna give it a whirl my referral is St1nkypete22, which is also my xbox live gamertag if any of you do that as well lol

    Call it the Great Lakes Acro…..you've got the blue water, the algae bloom green, and muddy brown lake erie
  9. I always have too much chaeto in the fuge, so I run a small powerhead to keep the water flowing through and around it. I can keep more growing at a time this way, to export more, and I get rid of half a 5 gallon bucket at a time.
  10. I believe I have mine on for 12 hours with the blues and 11 hours with the whites. For you I would keep the time roughly the same as what you currently do, and if you wish to expand, do that after everything is acclimated to the light. That being said I would start very low and work your way up slowly...like a 3% bump a week. I cant tell what sized tank you have there but if I were to guess, a 20 long or 29 gallon. So I would start with the whites at 1% on that thing and your blues between 5-10% If your light is brand new, I don't think I would ever get the blues over 30-35% and the whites 10% but your tank conditions may allow for some play since no 2 tanks are the same. Watch how everything is reacting and adjust accordingly, im going to bet some of your softies up top aren't going to like it at first.
