  1. Have a pic of it? Where you located? How many lbs is it all?
  2. Right back at you Cptnspanky. Merry Christmas to all!!!
  3. Well after hearing several points here i decided to go with the 2500. With the extra flow i will have i dont think i will need a wavemaker in the tank. Just have to dial it way down but i will have plenty of water flow in the tank. New pump will be here in a few days and post some pics when i get it set up. Thanks everyone.
  4. Even at lowest setting the 2500 will blow the little 30 gallon tank away. The 2500 is 650+ gph and even on low still gonna be above 300. Thats 10 times turnover an hour. Isnt that gonna be way too much?
  5. Ok so going with a 15 gallon sump for the 30 callon cube aquarium. I am thinking about a jebao dcs 2000 dc pump. Affraid its gonna be a little too strong though. Here are the stats of the pump. Model: Jebao / Jecod DCS-2000 Flow rate: Up to 2000LPH (528 Gallon) Max head: 2.2 Meter. Power consumption: 20W Voltage: 100-240V 50/60Hz Approximate dimensions: 14cm x 9cm x 11cm (L*W*H) Parcel dimensions: 21.5cm x 17.5cm x 13.5cm (L*W*H) Max height of water return is 4 feet. I am just affraid even at 50% power its gonna be way to much. I have the dcs 2500 on my 75 gallon tank and have to keep it about 50% to keep it from seeming like the fish are in a hurricane. Suggestions on a good adjustable flow pump for 30 gallon cube with 15 gallon sump??
  6. OK so here is an update. I lost 3 Ocellaris Clowns and 3 damsels but everyone else is doing good. Everything has cleared up on the fish in the original pic and everything is eating very well and swimming strong. They have been in QT for a week now. Copper levels are steady. Gonna remove copper after 14 days.
  7. Ok everyone is out of main tank and in a 55 gallon quarentine tank. Started off with a 50% dose of Cupramine today. Will add another quarter dose in 2 days and then final dose on 5th day to get to full dose of .5. Gonna be a while before anybody goes back in main tank. Will never make the mistake of adding a fish to main tank early. They will stay in quarantine for a full month from now on. Lost a a purple fire fish (culprit) and a damsel and a clown. Hoping it stops there and i can salvage the rest. Thank you all for the advice and help!!!
  8. 55 gallon. But eel is 8 inches. Biggest fish i have is 4 inch blue eye cole tang. Everything else is smaller. So 55 should be ok for quarentine period. That blue tang in pic is 2 inches maybe 2 1/4 inches.
  9. Never used copper before. But can figure it out i guess. Suggestions would be good. Am pulling fish to quarentine tsnk. What sbout inverts in tsnk? Snails hermits anemones? They safe? From this? What about Snowflake eel ? Flame angel blue eye tang tomini tang sailfin tang damsels and ocellaris clowns
  10. He is swimming fine breathing fine not scraping on rocks or sand but i did pull him and put him in quarantine tank
  11. Please look at the picture of my Blue Tang. What is on it. I am thinking velvet. Was not this way this morning. Treatment??
  12. So I learned a valuable lesson 3 days ago. NEVER hold a container of small fish pellets over your tank while feeling. Slipped out of my hand and lost 3/4 of a new container in the tank. Huge ammonia spike. Thank god I had another tank up and running I was able to pull the fish out and put them in that tank. l got as much of the food off the sand as I could but it got into the rocks and a lot went down the skimmer and into the sump. Did a 50% water change when I saw the ammonia going up yesterday afternoon. But even after all that the Ammonia still spiked up to between 1.0 and 2.0 from 0 and just wondering how long it may take to calm back down. I dosed with more bacteria after the water change hoping the extra bacteria would help get rid of it. Ammonia has not gone any higher and that reading was as of this morning at 6:30. Thoughts on how long it may take to recover?
  13. Not in Columbus much. But thank you very much for the offer.
