  3. Oh man, hoping you get it sorted quickly!
  4. I watched a few video's on this. I'm scared to do anything drastic like that to my tank.
  5. I'm not too worried about over feeding. I feed 10 small pellets every other day. (I also do frozen once a week but im not gonna have her do that). I just started reef frenzie but i'm guessing I can do without that one too just to keep nutrients down since I cant do water changes. I guess the biggest thing I was worried about was the lights and letting the algae get out of hand but I suppose that is just a matter of cleaning it up when I get home. I am starting to see quite a bit of hair algae pop up on the sand and some bigger what looks like macro algae on my GSP. I probably need to make a nice media basket for chamber 2 when I get back or maybe this weekend. The chamber 1 basket sucked cause it raised my tank display so high. Now I have it all sitting where I want it but i dont have filter floss in the mix anymore. Just a bag of Chemipure and a bag of Purigen in Chamber two right where the intake to chamber 3 is so they are acting as both chemical AND mechanical filtration at the moment. The Cheato is strill growing like crazy in chamber 1 tho. Using the API test kit Nitrates are undectible but i know that can be hidden by the algae consuming it right? So. Much. To. Learn!
  6. So I have a trip coming up next week and I will be gone for roughly 3 weeks. I am going to do a 30% water change before I leave but my concerne is algae growth on the glass. The wifey is not too interested in scraping the glass for me and with this AI prime light i get quite a bit of growth on the glass as well as lots of evaporation. I was considering putting the stock light back on and leaving on just the blues. (I have the timer so it can turn on and off with a schedule). Would that be a bad idea? She is going to feed the fish while I am away and keep the ATO topped off for me. Anything else I am missing you all can think of?
  7. If your wanting a pukani style rock why not go with the BRS alternative? - https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/bulk-dry-live-rock-live-sand/dry-live-rock.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjw8svsBRDqARIsAHKVyqFS-wGW6PhTJ7IrjwqwhKpo2ihEVFBhVE2AvXOm2gCck1RZsrRAnokaAgkcEALw_wcB
  8. The one clown fish will exibit this behavior once every few days. He hangs out close to it and I find myself watching him for long periods of time hoping he just bites the bullet and jumps right in but he hasn't pulled the trigger on the "move" yet.
  9. I didn't think to test the salt mix alone. Here is the salt I am using. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HCLNR0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Fresh 20% water change puts me at dKH 7.6 and pH 8.2
  11. $$, lots and lots of $$! lol - I'm a Nikon guy and shooting for the 105mm f2.8 1:1 some day. There are plenty of options tho. I often use Borrow lenses to rent glass from. Easier for me to spring 30-40 bucks here and there then drop a grand at a time on a single lens. So, I have my work horse lenses that I own and then just rent when I have the need. This macro lens would be for the fishtank only so cant really justify the $900 in glass when I can rent it for a week and get all the cool shots I want for a while. Here is where I rent from. Check out that 100mm f2.8 Canon L lens they have on there listed as the second item. Would be a great lens for tank shots i feel. https://www.borrowlenses.com/AdvancedSearch.do?searchString=canon+macro
