  1. I wanted to start this thread a long time ago but have waited about as long as I can.About 10 weeks ago I placed an order with Acrylic Creations for a custom 66 Long X 24 X 24 Acrylic Aquarium (~166 Gallons). This will be a peninsula style, see through tank, that will separate two sides of my basement. I also have an order on with my favorite sump builder, LifeReef, for and CLF2 Compact Berlin Sump and LifeRefugium which will run along side my LifeReef Calcium Reactor.I will also be going all out with EcoTech Marine products as follows:Additional Items:- 3 X Ecotech Radion XR30 Pro Gen 4 (Custom Acrylic Mounts)- Ecotech Marine ReefLink Controller- 2 X Ecotech Vortech MP40w- Vectra M1 (Drive Skimmer)- Vectra L1 (Drive return, refugium, and reactors)Stocking plans for this tank will be very similar to my last SPS tank but on a larger scale. I also plan to push my luck with one or two larger angel species. The photo attached is just after I completed cutting out the carpet, and leveling the tank stand on composite shims. The tank now sits directly on the homes slab foundation, so no worries about falling through the floor!Updates to come frequently and soon!!
  2. Hi everyone. A couple of months ago one of my anemones spawned making my water super cloudy like milk was dumped in it. I did water several water changes and everything seemed ok. About a week after, I started having issues where a light white film and algae started covering everything. Since. I did water changes daily, replaced the carbon three times and a chemipure and phosphate. I even used a toothbrush to scrub rocks and the walls and for about a day and half everything looked great. The. It returned and showed a brown film on the bottom. I remember did a week blackout to kill everything. I have a rodi system for my water. I have changed he water so many times I can’t count the gallons anymore and I test the water before and after and my levels look good in all departments from the normal and reef master test kit. My filter also has a uv light and I even tried chemiclean. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? The few fish and corals I have are doing alright. I recently tried to add more clean up crew and they seem to not last more than a day :/ see my pics of what I’m looking at. Now on top of the flakey white algae I have green algae growing. even my urchin hasn’t moved in a week plus. Do I basically have to start over and salvage the fish and coral I can?
  3. I am selling my complete saltwater tank system, as I no longer have the interest and time that I had 20 years ago. Tank: SeaClear 100 Gallon Acrylic Show Tank with Blue Back (Tank has not been drilled), still have the (2) matching black light hoods that came with it. Some scratches near bottom, but priced as is and will not matter if you want a sandy bottom - I go sandless. Stand: Seaclear Black Acrylic Stand with two front doors to access storage. Small chip in top front left corner. The storage area is big enough for a sump and pump system. The stand has a drill hole in the top toward the back center from when I had a SeaClear System II tank and sump below. (unfortunately, that tank did not survive the trip to Findlay). Lighting: Black Metal Hood Enclosure with (2) 110 watt VHOs & (2) 175 watt Metal Halides, (2) separate ballast boxes to control VHOs or Halides independently. Currently running 10,000K lights thru all, to slow growth/reproduction & reduce height of Green Sinularia corals. Be aware with 6,500K lights, SInularia will extend out much more and grow/reproduce much faster. At one point I was selling them to Pets Supplies Plus when they were still selling saltwater, but I had to change out the 6,500K lights out because the Sinularia were overtaking the tank. Miscellaneous Internals: (1) SeaClone 100 Protein Skimmer; WaveMaster Pro Microprocessor-Controlled Wavemaker; Aquaclear Powerheads (1) 802, (2) 402, (1) 301; Whisper Power Filter 60 for filtration. Reef Inhabitants: Multiple Green Sinularia; Multiple Orange Montipora Capricornis; (1) Sebae Anemone/Heteractis (11 yrs old); (1) Elibi Angel (20 yrs old, that is right 20 yrs old); (1) Mushroom Leather Finger Coral; other misc. button polyps, starburst polyps, purple & green actinodiscus; approx. 100 lbs of live rock. Miscellaneous: (1) 200 gallon box of Reef Crystals; a Pentair Aquaculture Scratch Removal Kit. Transfer Tank & Accesories: 55 Gallon Glass Tank with (2) glass covers. This tank is included (and is the one I had used if I had to move my previous system II acrylic tank) to setup prior to tanking down the acrylic tank, so the inhabitants can be transferred to the 55 gallon temporarily, so the 100 gallon acrylic tank/stand can be moved. Also, (1) Aquaclear Powerhead to mix salt & (1) VisiTherm 250W heater. $800 for all the above. I am located in Findlay, Ohio.
  4. Less than a year old (purchased in January) in working condition. Will need to purchase new slides. Monitors pH, ammonia, temperature and is a Par meter. For more information see the sellers website. Asking $150 Located in Streetsboro https://www.seneye.com/
  5. Hi all I just recently joined and wanted to share my newest creation with others. Please feel free to criticize. My aquarium is a 55 gallon with minimal mechanical filtration, two aquaclears. I am a huge fan of biological filtration and low bioloads, a religious zealot about it. I am not running a sump system, the 200? watt titanium heater is hidden in the rock work. The lighting system is a quad bulb fixture with 4 Ati T5 bulbs, all of which are different. As for water movement, I have a RW-8 on its way. Future plans: Moving some live rock from my other tanks to seed the tank. Stocking list: pair of clowns Fairy Wrasse Maybe a watchman or other goby to pair with my pistol shrimp barnacle blenny maybe a jawfish Here is a few pictures, I will update as much as I can. Enjoy! During Construction: As of today: Sorry, I am not responsible for neck injuries.
