  1. It's about a year old. I was hoping to get somewhere around $550 for it with the magnetic probe rack.
  2. Hey all. Moving out of state soon and need to get this process going. Everything in this list has been in an established tank for around a year. The Goby injured his dorsal fin at least 4 months ago and has been doing fine ever since. Discounts for multiple items. Priced to move, but send offers! I need this stuff out of here so I can get new floors in before we list our house. I'll be listing equipment after the livestock is gone. Sorry. The fish apparently don't like their pictures taken and decided to go hide. Must be picked up in Wadsworth, OH 44281. Here's the list: Mai Tai clowns (must go together - they are like an old married couple) 40 Purple Firefish 20 Yellow Watchman Goby (There is a pistol shrimp too, but they never found each other) 15 Skunk Cleaner Shrimp 20 Florida Conch 10 Orchid Dottyback 35 Candy Cane Pistol Shrimp (This might need to go last since he hides under the biggest piece of live rock) 20 Misc Zoas (not the big colony - I counted 30+ polyps) Rastas, Blue-eyed blonde, various others IDK 75 GSP 10 Aussie Hammer (with babies on the way) 80 Neon Hammer (a few good sized heads) 50 Scrambled Eggs Zoas Colony (small fist sized - not sure how many polyps) 100 Inverts (Trochus snails, Hermit Crabs) Live Rock (50-60 lbs?) 150 Mushroom Rock 75
  3. @Joe I'm getting ready to start breaking down my system. I'll be selling an Apex system as soon as I find a new home for the livestock. Let me know if you end up going that route!
  4. Thanks @Muttley000. It's for positive reasons. We just miss it out there and I have a good career opportunity pop up that will allow us to go back. Hopefully I'll be able to get something set up out there shortly after. There's too much up in the air to know for sure right now though!
  5. Hey all! Sorry I've been away for so long, and sorry I missed those comments above. Life and work got a little....hectic. @Ronnyking I know this is about 6 months too late, but I do like the lights just fine. I wish they were easier to control, but they are great once you get them dialed in. I think 3 would be overkill. I have two of them and they are dialed back quite a bit. In other news, it looks like we are going to be moving back out to Colorado in the near future and now I have to figure out how to tear down this tank and sell everything. I'll be posting a lot of stuff soon once I figure out how to do all of this and how much to list things for. I hope you all are safe and healthy. I'm going to go catch up on the progress of all your tanks!
  6. Nice shop! I'd love to put something like that together one day.
  7. I swear your Tang is in the exact same position in every picture

    I've looked into that. There's a lot of reef related stuff that would be fun to automate or track with Pi or Arduino. Edit: That's strange. It looked like I didn't actually submit the post above when I looked at it earlier today, so I posted again. Weird. Sorry for the multiple posts...

    I've looked into that and will eventually put something DIY together. ReefPi is pretty solid!
  10. Well, I literally installed that refugium last week. I did clean my sump out a few weeks ago though, so it's pretty spiffy
  11. Well, so far it's only in my refugium. I shut down the flow to the fuge just to try and keep it out. If I can keep it from spreading and only lose a little chaeto, I'm ok with that. Of course I'm leaving town for vacation at the end of the week. Hopefully it doesn't go crazy while I'm gone.
  12. Interesting. I'll look into that too. I just started running GFO in the same reactor as the carbon last week too.
  13. That's good to know. I've been reading up a bit on it and realized too that I just cleaned my powerheads and return pump by soaking them in a 50/50 vinegar/RODI solution. I feel like they were rinsed fairly well, but that could be weighing into this a bit.
  14. I am definitely using activated carbon. And I just changed that out a few days ago. I'll shut down the #1 reactor for now and look into that.
  15. Anyone have any idea what this is? I've poked around, but my Google-fu is coming up short. It's only in my fuge. Here are my current params: Nitrate, Phosphate, Nitrite, Ammonia - undetectable dKh - 8.9, Calcium - 440 Recent changes: There have been a lot. New fuge. New Chaeto. I've been feeding live Phyto. I added pods to the fuge and I don't see any in there anymore. I also dosed 2-part for the first time the other day.
