  1. Few things for sale I’m not using anymore . Cant trade for corals just yet tunze wavebox 6208. $200. Purchased may last year Sk- 5000 Rollermat $175 Pickup in Lima or ship on your dime
  2. LRS a few times a week and an auto feeder dumps in pellets twice a day.
  3. Been far behind with getting things done but a weekend off finally let me make some progress on the dozen things I have going right now Project in the works. Magnetic auto feeder mount. A clear acrylic chimney will be attached to the inside magnet.
  4. I’ll be posting up some frag racks soon on eBay but have been swamped with work and life right now. More to come
  5. Recent frag rack that is being shipped out. Holds strong up to 1/2” glass. Epoxy coated magnets encased in acrylic. Bottom can be swapped out for any color with a few screws.
  6. Be prepared before it happens. I have everything on a battery ups backup. The apex will alert me of a power outage and turns off non critical equipment giving me 30-40 minutes of run time to get home. Dedicated generator in the garage that can run the tank for 12 hours on a tank of gas. key is to test your backups before you need to use them. I’ve ran mine through simulated power outages to ensure nothing will overflow and everything stays running smoothly. I have since made changes such as running back up heaters on separate ups backups that kick on when the main ones die or fail. A
  7. No more fish. Velvet killed off most of them and the rest are in QT again. Removed the sandbed, redid the rock to a NSA style aquascape. It’s filled back up now and flowing again but so far so good.
  8. Thursday I drained down my entire tank if that counts as anything.
  9. Black Ocean wonder plugs. I buy their bulk 100 count bags. Around $27 shipped I wanna say
  10. Doing some dosing containers for someone local this week but made this one to match a reefers sump: Acrylic price plugs have been keeping me busy alone. Selling large bulk orders to stores and frag operations.
  11. Cleaned the Tunze wave box and doing a 20 gallon water change to remove some detritus in the frag tank.
  12. Late but actually cleaned the glass for once
  13. Orange milli. Don’t think it’s anything fancy with a name.
  14. Also an accidental fragging of my homewrecker last night. Cut a few other pieces and ended up hitting this one with the end of the bone snips. Ended up being a pretty nice frag that’s already branching.
  15. Been working on my dosing pump stand to fit the new containers I made. This sits in the closet beside the tank and also is where the RO water is stored. the bottom will hold the trident waste container and CO2 scrubber. Last picture is new zoa additions I picked up last minute yesterday and got shipped next day.
  16. I use micro7 all the time. My routine was after water changes but now that I have more dosing containers I’ll add it daily. I strongly believe a range of beneficial bacteria can really help tanks overcome algae issues and become balanced. I order the 2L bottles on Amazon to save on it.
  17. Going to have to clean the glass tomorrow and I’ll join in late
  18. Should get pretty even par distribution with that setup!
  19. Been neglecting my tank and projects to work on others but I’m going to get my new dosing containers up and running this weekend. CO2 reactor is running and the 1/2” lines really helped with proper airflow to the skimmer. The frag tank is finally thinned out after the cinci show so I can focus on some higher end pieces to grow out.
  20. Was nice to meet everyone at the show. Hopefully there will be more this year
  21. I will be. I still have a decent amount left on RT if anyone wants to make a deal.
  22. Yeah I will add you down and get them cut out tonight.
  23. $12 a piece. I can make more by the end of the week.
  24. Scrubber is in action. This design was worked out over the last 2 weeks with someone interested in one to match their sump. I’m doing a quick week test before the shipment if there’s so I’ll be able to track pH movement. The John guest fittings are oversized at 1/2” to run with a 3/8” or 1/2” line. My skimmer would struggle to pull the air through 2 BRS reactors and but right away it went back to running at optimal air flow with just a 3/8” line. This is set up recirculating with a 1/4” shut off valve which will control fresh air flow into the skimmer intake. Keeps pH between 8.2-8.4
