  5. I'm starting to clear out my greenhouse. The first thing to go is my sand grader. This is built by myself and has processed several hundred tons of aragonite. Here's a link to a video: https://www.facebook.com/WestMariculture/videos/810407628989911/ Sorry if you don't have FB, but I posted that video a long time ago and I don't have the original. I'm available for a show and tell for serious buyers. I'm offering it here first. If no takers, I'll post elsewhere. $1000
  6. Probably need to remove lenses on the led to get a better spread.
  7. Very simple. Maximize space and minimize complexity. My son built these.
  8. That is awesome!! Thanks for picking up some Bonsai Reef and sharing pics. Tank looks great. Thanks for the tag Jessie.
  9. It's intended to be a frag show tank. My guess is they made it thicker to handle being moved around a lot. Definitely way thicker than needed for a frag tank, but the deal I got on it was unbeatable. I couldn't pass it up.
  10. More details: 24x24x8 Acrylic tank. 3/4" thick with internal overflow/sump. It's meant to be a frag show tank, but will suit our needs. Tank is from Acrylic Creations - 100W Fluval M submersible heater - Inkbird Digital Outlet Heat Temperature Controller (I just don't trust heaters) - CNZ 1-inch Black Aquarium Fish Tank Filter Bio-balls - Instant Ocean salt - SB Reeflights - sBox 16" (Basic) - Small pump that came with tank. Will probably replace or add additional pumps in tank for better flow. Filled with RO/DI water and getting the temp & salinity right. Since the tank with water will weigh around 200 lbs. max, the kitchen cabinet was an easy choice. It is 24x24, fully finished, with a drawer and cabinet space, for $159. I cut a 24x24 piece of birch plywood for the top. My son painted it black...and then with glow in the dark paint (I'll get pics when it's dark out). I added some prefinished oak trim to the front and sides of the board. Clear silicone was put on the top edge of the cabinet and the board was put in place. The silicone holds the board in place as well as sealing the top edge from moisture (it's all particle board, of course). My son and I designed some very simple Bonsai Reef that will maximize space and give multiple heights. They'll be finished within the week and then we can get some pics. It will easily hold 150 frags, but the shelves will probably get drilled to hold more. We need to look for a cleanup crew and a fish or two (no jumpers). We're taking slow as my son is learning as we go along. The goal is to have him sell frags at the West Mariculture booth at shows. Just something else for our big crazy booth. We will be using some of my EcoSmart Complete bacteria for initial cycle, as well as weekly maintenance dose to keep things clear. Doing a weekly dose will eliminate crud buildup that should keep the tank very clean without having to add a lot of extra filtration.
  11. Finally setup the frag tank we bought at the show. We used a kitchen cabinet from Lowes. A piece of 3/4" plywood and some trim was added for the top. The lights are SB Reeflights. I'll probably need the PAR meter to get the intensity right. We're building some Bonsai Reef for the tank. So far so good.
  12. West Mariculture's Bonsai Reef reefscapes will be in the May/Jun issue of Tropical Fish Hobbyist on the Product Spotlight page (pg. 93). I had to share this, as it has me pretty stoked! I've been reading TFH since the mid 80's (yeah, I'm that old), and have several hundred of them in a tote somewhere. It wasn't like a childhood dream to have something in TFH, as I just never considered it would be possible. There's also a link to the Bonsai Reef details on the TFH web site: http://www.tfhmagazine.com/
