  1. welll....I went a little auction crazy during this COVID house arrest. PSA, if you havent checked out Cheezy Corals ( Cheezy Frags N Stuff on Facebook) they have auctions every weekend and can get some awesome deals. just be careful because sometimes everything you bid on you actually win and then you have to explain to you wife what this paypal transaction is....again...But anyways, my 55(-5 for nanoreef13) frags came in today, yes 55 frags, and couldnt be happier with the livestock, everything is healthy and opened up, and once it all settled and I get it in place my tank should be pretty well full......for now. pictures below.

  3. I got the EL module, so the PH and temp probe, I have the flow monitor and ATO for now, any recommendations on things you would do without? the tangs have all been great, bad aggression only lasted about a week really
  4. Well, I decided between my kids' education and the reef tank today...and the tank won. Decided to move into the big leagues with the Apex and Radion Gen 5s for the tank tank today. I got the lights installed today, but the apex will have to wait until the morning. I am going to redue my plumbing (going to try to do it right this time) so if anyone is experienced with this and would like to help I do have plenty of beer, sure I plan on doing it in the morning but I wont judge if you dont. pictures of everything to come........but seriously if you dont have anything going on tomorrow and loved setting up your apex and doing your plumbing let me know. I live just North of Polaris.

  6. I started with one yellow, then got the other yellow, kole, and foxface at the same time. they old yellow picked on the the new one for a couple days, but he kinda had the foxface backing him up. the latest was the addition of the sailfin and was pretty worried about him the first week or so, both yellows and the foxface kept picking on him. I'm a few weeks in now and they arent best friends by any means, but are tolerating each other. the 2 yellows and foxface dont bother each other anymore, and the kole has always just did his own thing
  7. I've been part of this group for a little more than a year when I first set up my tank, but i haven't got around to posting anything about it. So, a little backstory with it. I had bought my house about 10 yrs ago and had an unfinished basement, shortly after my aunt was tearing down her freshwater tank and gave it to me for free. Its a 125, so takes up quite a bit of space. So i kinda built my basement around where i wanted the tank, and put it in the wall separating the main area of the basement and the guest room. Got the basement finished and the tank in the wall and it sat...and sat...and sat, fast forward about 8-9 years and i finally got a wild hair and decided (against my wife's better judgment) so go all out and set up a mixed reef tank. Now me, never having anything other than a gold fish that i won from the fair, had a long road ahead of me. After a ton of research i finally got busy on it. Quick bit of advise for anyone just starting out, DONT BUY CHEAP!! AND HAVE PATIENCE. So i bought cheap and had 0 patience, and learned the hard way, ended up having to buy additional equipment and after having every different type of algae over the past year, finally (hopefully) have this tank under control (Turf Algae is a tough mother!). So what equipment i have right now is No name -125 Gallon Tank Trigger Systems CR44 Sump Vectra M2 Return 3x Viparspectra 165w (cant bring myself to pull the trigger on 3 - XR30s or Hydras yet) 2x Jebao SOW 15 Neptune ATK Jebao 4 head doser LIVESTOCK: 2x yellow tang Kole tang Sailfin Tang 1 spot Foxface 2x purple firefish 6x clowns 2 x Wrasse wide variety of coral Acros aren't growing well, Montis are, everything else is doing great. Pictures to follow
  8. I might have to look into that. I'm using the Triton supplements and they are supposed to have the required nutrients to grow chaeto in it though
  9. anyone have the AI Fuge light? if so what do you run it at? intensity and time?
  10. So I've tried and failed 3x now with chaeto in my sump. I have nitrates and phosphates, not too high but still there, just had an ICP test no contaminants that should be killing it. I have the AI fuge light. Algae is thriving in the DT, changed up the light schedule to reduce it in the DT, and increase photo period in the sump. I've used different intensities with the fuge light and everytime it just slowly dies off. I know I dont need chaeto, but want it as my primary nutrient export. wanting to run the full triton method (hate doing water changes), but looks like I will have to modify it with NO3PO4X. Any advise on why the chaeto would be dying off??
  11. if public access to the river was still open, I would be up there to get a limit and that fish
  12. anyone near the north side of columbus have any chaeto they are throwing out?
