  1. Diy chaeto reactor

    Ok, maybe not a complete diy, but i have an old bio pellet reactor that i think might work. This would be for my 125 that i use for a frag tank. I was think of wrapping this in red and blue grow led strip. Anyone have any thoughts on this? I have been wanting to have a fuge on this tank, but because i have this laying around, i figured it would be at least a good experiment.

  6. My wife and I have been trying to get this new home project off the ground for a couple years now. We finally finished all the paperwork for the construction loan and have gotten our permit to build from the parish! I will be contracting the home myself , along with doing a good bit of the work!
  7. So upset right now!

    Jerry, do you think the phosphates had anything to do with the new salt you were using from macna?

  9. Im going remove almost all coral before the black out. If i change rocks after blackout, i will already have 250-300lbs circulating in the system for a couple months in remote bins plumbed to the sump. If i do that i will probably have a total system volume of about 850-900 gallons. Which will help for die off, but i can continue water changes also.
  10. So now that i have the frag system up and going it time to start addressing my big probelm of eradicating all of the green pocillopora that has spead all over my tank. This project will likely start in January. I will be trying to save the coral i want and keep them in the frag system. I do have plenty of fish i have to worry about during this process. I am still on the fence if i want to replace all the rock in the tank. If i do i will order dry rock , cure it and plumb seperate containers to the tank to start seeding it for the transition. No matter if i do that or not, im pretty sure im going to have to have a black out in the tank long enough to kill the pocillopora off. The pocillopora has speard everywhere, including the back wall of the tank, and even grows from the sand. Im open to ideas and suggestions because although I'm not concerned about losing coral in this process, the fish are my main concern. What do you guys think?

    Sorry Jerry, i corrected it!
  12. Kirk, dont let something like this get you out of the hobby. There's no doubt in my mind, a fresh start with a massive tank will revitalize your passion for the hobby. I sure most of us long term reefers here have experienced ups and dows, but something always pulls us back into it. Your tank, like 6lilfishes said, has inspired alot of local reefers. Your new beautiful home will not be complete without your own piece of the reef.

  18. Parade of Tanks

    Hello everyone! Over the next few weeks I will be trying to get together a few different dates for a Parade of Tanks! I will be looking to cover several different areas. Hopefully be able to get 3 to 4 tanks to visit for each date. I know many of you like me , have beautiful reef tanks and never really get to share them with others besides family and a few friends. I'm sure most of you have gotten the same question from your visitors that I have, "Is this saltwater?" Being able to show off all your hard work to other reef addicts such as myself is always exciting and I promise no one will ask that! Please feel free to message me if you have interest in opening your home to our members. As I get interest in an area I will set a date and try to get it booked with a day of parading.
