  1. Oct 7 meet at Coral Connection

    I'll be there!

    *Slap!*
  3. Pickin up the pieces

    Oh yeah, that's a massive amount of rock. And a ton of gunk that came off in the acid bath. Looks like you got some nicely interesting pieces though. I think that other than the Pukani, I don't have much in the way of interesting rocks. I should probably cook the rock I pulled out of the 120. Had a couple decent pieces of Fiji and Tonga in that batch. Was worried about nutrients leeching from the soup that tank had become before I tore it down.

    Nice!
  5. Pickin up the pieces

    It was painful to read the thread about the loss man. Not the way I envisioned your move into the new place happening.
  6. Hanging an ATI sunpower

    Haha! All ghosty up in here.
  7. Wire broke on Apex display

    Neptune doesn't sell the tablet. They suggest getting a cheap Amazon Fire Tablet (the one that isn't add supported) and making some setting changes to keep them from going to sleep. An old unused iPad or other cheaper tablets can be used as a full color display.
  8. Wire broke on Apex display

    Those wires are super thin, so it may be tough to get enough current on a repair, that's if the connection point inside the case is still secure. Cheap tablet response from Neptune is actually more useful in my opinion.
  9. Aquascaping cement

    Thanks for the replies @kirk_m & @mknightryder. I may give the mixing with water suggestion a try. The liquid part is now white and not pink... Looking at the data sheet, the liquid portion has a shelf life of 12 months when properly stored. I'm sure I've had it for at least 2 years... Oh well. @lars I may ping Frank over at Aquatic Sealife to see if he has any of the Aquaforest stuff in stock on Saturday, if using water doesn't do the trick for me. @110reef The majority of my rock will just be stacked in the tank, however there are some pieces that I want to put together to incorporate some flat mounting structures for corals and overhangs. Not something that can be easily achieved with stacking or PVC/rods, and still be completely hidden.

  11. A few phone pics.

    Awesome pics Jerry! So nice to be able to actually look at aquarium and coral pics again
  12. So... I went to buckle down this past weekend to put together my aquascape and get water in the tank. Started trying to cement some rock pieces together with the e-Marco-400 I had bought a couple of years ago, but had never opened. After a couple of mixing, forming and having to chip away brittle cement, I'm thinking that some portion of the cement or liquid reagent is bad or expired. I'm going to check with Marco to verify though. I want to get rock in this coming weekend, and other than putty (which I've never had much luck with), does anyone have a suggestion on something I could pick up locally (will drive to NOLA if need be). Thanks!
