  1. A member on Reef2reef is making them for me. They look amazing. Finish product (aside from the front legs). The back squares will hold 3” frag tiles for grow out SPS.
  2. I’ll try and get this updated by the weekend and new pictures. Left for a week and the tank ran smoothly aside from losing a royal gramma and my regal angel. Corals are thriving like crazy. I started dosing microbacter7 weekly after each water change and it keeps the algae under control and I hardly have to clean my glass anymore. Did wake up this week to a snail eating flatworm about 5” in length munching on an astrea snail. He was quickly removed and I hope he was a lone flatworm. I haven’t added anything new in a few months so he must have came in super tiny on a frag and survived
  3. I’ll have plenty left. I have to do some fragging tomorrow since things are getting out of control. I’m hoping to have my new racks by next weekend
  4. Still open to offers. I need to thin these out before my new racks come. Also selling grow out tiles. I let a few go last week for $40 that were covered. listings posted on reef trader for the CORA show with more pictures
  5. After a little experimenting I’ve tried ESV salt water mix and just IO and both are testing for nitrates just after mixing. So the dilution method requires you to mix sample water with “nitrate free saltwater” which may be hard to do. RODI water- 0.00 RODI ESV salt- 3.66 x10 tank sample- 4.73ppm im curious how much of the salt impacts the rest of I could just dilute with RODI water.
  6. It’s definitely the most in-depth checker they offer in terms of steps but still easy to use. Here’s a good video showing the process.
  7. I think most sites are shipping them this week. I did a preorder from SA about a month ago. No one is really selling the reagents yet which is strange but I placed an order directly through Hanna for 5 extra boxes. I’m going to try the dilution method now since it’ll be doing that the majority of the time. It does require fresh saltwater which I do not keep mixed so a small pain there.
  8. Everyone was super hyped up about the new Hanna nitrate colorimeter and then sad to learn this one required being able to follow some simple directions. While there are 3 reagents and a few steps to this checker, the accuracy of a digital colorimeter out beats trying to decide which shade of pink your sample is. Overall for an investment of $50 and $15 for reagent refills ($0.60/test). This checker will be used weekly in my testing routine without a doubt. My previous method was a salifert test kit but to me it was hard to decipher the exact color shade so I just knew a general range of my ni
  9. $15/ frag or 8 for $100. I have close to 200 zoa frags now. Will also sell entire 3x3” tiles for cheap. Some examples below. Largest frags will go first.
  10. Bad picture but this is the largest frag I have. Other frags are around 5-6 polyps. $30
  11. I still have the 20 gallon with stand and the 40 gallon tank. I also have the 30-36” light to go with either tank. Perfect for a QT tank. Will trade for coral.
  12. I’ll grab some when the lights come on at 2. I’ve got probably 10 frag plus a rock covered in them.
