  1. That's a great idea! What do you use as a trap? 2-litre bottle? Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  2. Agreed. Yellow Tang is skittish to begin with, so should be interesting to catch him and not one of the other fish first. I have considered that new product that looks like a half bubble that attaches to the glass with a magnet, but can't quite justify the price tag. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  3. Lmao! That's great! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  4. That's my thought as well. I've left the net in the tank for a few days to get them used to it's presence... Hoping it works. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  5. So.... I'm trying to catch my yellow Tang and a pair of clownfish in my reef tank. Problem is there really isn't a good spot to put a net/trap in because of the rock and coral. If there is enough room, the fish are smart enough to move to a spot where there isn't. Short of tearing the tank apart, anyone have any ideas? Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  6. 20g/week continuous via DOS. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  7. Great news! Now I have to go and try to catch my devil yellow Tang and clownfish pair... Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  8. Eh, 4-6? I have a 135g tank, but I also have a few Wrasse, so I'm a bit hesitant to dump in a whole bunch before I see how long they last. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  9. I'd be willing to jump in on a few of possible as well. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  10. I wish. I got to use that extra hour bright and early this morning to play dolls with my 4 year old, lol. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  11. I'm one of the naysayers, lol. IF all four corner points and all of the linear edges (essentially the plastic edges) rest evenly on the tank stand, the weight is distributed evenly across the surface of the stand as intended. If it does not, essentially the weight of the tank is now bearing on the lowest point and causing undue stress at that point, which could potentially lead to a failure. The foam is intended to provide an additional failsafe in that any micro-imperfections will be absorbed by the foam, creating a perfectly flat surface on which to rest. The problem lies for those that think they can just sit the tank on pink foam without first ensuring that the tank/stand plane is already very very close to flat and level.

  12. I would start with ensuring the tank is flat to the stand (no gaps, shims, etc). Any gaps or imperfections will add unnecessary stress to the tank itself. Ideally the stand would be shimmed as necessary under the legs/stand only at the floor. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah, no basement does present a new set of challenges for sure. Mine is located in my basement as an in wall build and is roughly a 200g system. The DOS changes 20g/week, using 2 x 35g brute containers as the reservoirs. In all fairness, I think I could get away with far less of a weekly WC as I have a low bioload and also run a 100g Rubbermaid sump/refugium. However, the water changes also helps supplement my Alk/Ca dosing, so I just continue with the 10%. Arguments for and against water changes, the amounts, the frequency, the salt, continuous vs periodic, etc. At the end of the day I truly truly believe none of it matters - just be consistent with what you choose. The AWC works with results because it is consistent. Good luck! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  14. Good reminder! Lucky for me I have an Apex and a DOS so mine are done automatically and continuously otherwise I would probably never do them! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  15. While I certainly believe you, I'm shocked by your results so far. Sad to hear that's the case, but if you do decide to part with them I would be very much interested! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
