  1. Marinland 90 reef octopus 150 classic mag 9.5 return pump reef radiance led lights oak stand and hood ( purchased from Aquahut) eshopp sump 600 call or text 228-234-8447
  2. I have probably 60-75 lb of rock that is infested . The LFS told me that even if I take the rock out and set in the sun for a while they will come back . I am thinking of an acid bath in addition . I hat to throw it out and have to buy it over but at this point I think I need to remove what fish and the coral that is left. Store said they would give me store credit for it and clean the entire tank .opinions
  3. I have about 30 gallons of saltwater that has been mixed for about 6 weeks has always had a pump circulating in it . Use it or throw it out, wanted to change out 30 gallons today and another 30 in couple days.
  4. I pose this question as i have been thinking a lot about taking my 90 down to reboot. It has become infested with pest anemone . While taking it down i have been thinking of a small downsize. I know i can get these AIO that have the low iron glass at a premium but wondering if on smaller tanks say less then a 40 breeder , which has 1/4 " glass can you tell a noticeable difference in the clarity. I am well aware of the look of the rimless tanks but that aside. Any opinions
  5. Used it very little has pump included 50
  6. I have one of these never got around to using it 75
  7. while i am on a rant about coralvue products . I have bought several . Lets Maxspect Gyre impellers and bushings were replace after 6 months, Thanks to gerwin. Autoaqua smart ato the brain replaced not once but twice the first year i had it once again thank to gerwin at just fish for replacing these items without my asking , i was prepared to go to coralvue with the issues but was taken care of . I think there really is something to buying quality the first time. Live and learn
  8. i have had the skimmer for about 2 years . got it at just fish. i just found it odd the last skimmer i had , used the OTP pump called coralvue and was told the impeller was bad bought it and guess what ... yep the impeller was not the problem . I called them again and was then sold the pump . At this point i am thinking they don't really sell a quality product after all.
  9. i am going to clean this skimmer again just to be sure the is nothing stuck in the volute
  10. yep every 3-6 months. for reference i clean my mag pump maybe 4-5 times in the 8+ years i have had it . in addition i bought it used just keeps pumping
  11. aqua trance 2000s. this is the 3 RO skimmer i have used over the years . all of them the pump last about 1-2 years . While my return pump has been ticking for some 8 years. I bought a sicce pump to have when it died years ago still waiting on this mag9.5 to stop working dang thing is like a timex. It reminds me of the little giant pumps i had when i got into saltwater in 1985.
  12. i have had several reef octopus skimmers that the pump seems to go south before its time. the latest is a sss150 that all of the sudden stops. i cleaned it out and the pump work for about a day in a half. then little to no output. on the other hand the mag 9.5 i have had working nonstop for about 8 years . Just don't get it. I guess i will take it out again an see if something is in the volute.
