  1. Upgrade Alert..Bobby's(Saldarya) Old Tank

    Nice looking additions!

    Congrats Jerry!
  3. And it continues... 300DD In-wall Build

    Oh it has to happen Ken. It'll cost me too much to rip that sucker out at this point. It at least needs to see saltwater for a little while

    Looking good J... Well that bacteria bloom doesn't... but we all hate those
  5. And it continues... 300DD In-wall Build

    Wow... It's really been that long since I've posted an update? Sheesh, I need to take myself out back and shoot me. I guess the MACNA run-up, execution, and exhaustion that followed did a number on me. As for the state of the tank, I've not done a whole lot of note since my last update. Filled it, let it run for a while, then drained the system a couple of times to be sure. Determined that the 'leak' was from salt creep that had accumulated down inside the plastic trim, so as it gathered moisture from the air, it dripped through the gaps and looked like a leak. After cleaning out those gaps as best I could (compressed air, etc) the next fill up didn't show the dampness I'd seen previously. Post MACNA I had filled and drained it again, and attempting to get as much of the gunk off the glass and walls of the sump as I can. Work, holidays, and vacation has been getting in the way of that, but I should be ready to get movement going in the next couple of weeks. Put a 50% deposit down on a 20KW whole house generator a couple of weeks ago, so hopefully I'll have that installed before hurricane season.
  6. So upset right now!

    Man that sucks. You'll bring it around I'm sure.
  7. Oct 7 meet at Coral Connection

    I'll be there!
  8. Pickin up the pieces(300 build)

    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.
  9. Pickin up the pieces(300 build)

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

    Haha! All ghosty up in here.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
