  1. RedStickReefer's Dream Build

    I have a 30g mixed reef. I have a mandarin and yellow assessor for my fish. My cleanup crew is 2 conches, 2 pederson shrimp, 1 serpent star, 1 turbo snail and many mini brittle starfish. This has been working great for me.
  2. Pickin up the pieces(300 build)

    In a situation like that just do it and ask for forgiveness. You need a fishroom.

    Tank looks great. Did you get a fishroom with the new house?
  4. MockandRoll Reefer 170 (40g)

    Thanks. I think I have a chance to keep the sun coral long term since I feed frozen daily.
  5. MockandRoll Reefer 170 (40g)

    A few months ago I broke down my 90g so my family and I could move to San Antonio. I wasn't expecting to setup another tank until we found the home we wanted. However, I got the itch, found a great deal on craigslist (tank, light, return pump, skimmer, reeflink) and got approval from my landlord. I have been working on it for about a month. I did slight modifications such as use a seaswirl for the return. I started cycling about 10 days ago and I have a small bacteria bloom. Let me know what yall think.

    Thanks for the info. I am considering switching to a kalk stirrer but probably will not anytime soon since 2-part is cheap for smaller tanks.

    Changed my radion lenses to wide angle. Tank is going great except for my bubblegum monti, which has been slowly losing color. I have also been fighting hydroids with scrubbing. It will be a never ending battle but for some reason I currently don't mind. I feed my corals daily so I decided to try a sun coral. Well see how long that lasts.
  8. Twinn's 250/300g DD build

    Beautiful tank. Just hearsay but I read the polyfilter sucks at taking out metals while the TLF metasorb works. I have never used either but have a pad of metasorb just in case.

    Nice work on the algae reactor. How long have you had the kalk stirrer? Do you like it?
  10. Innovative Marine 25 Lagoon Drilled w/ Sump

    Nice work. I will have an external overflow in my next tank.
  11. Good luck. It reads like you are having fun even with the extra work. My novice advice is even with the rock circulating in the system for a couple of months, I would still replace the display rock slowly. Why not replace a little at a time over a few months.
  12. IM Nuvo 40 build

    Good start. I suggest a led/T5 hybrid light.
  13. Trav's 70g CadLights Artisan II

    Nice video. Tank is colorful and clean. You plan on putting anything in the front sandbed.
  14. Sorry to hear about the loss. I always liked seeing pictures of your tank and hearing what advice you had to offer. Now ask yourself. What are you going to do if you don't grow sticks....grow tomatoes????

    Tank and fish room look great. My wife and I are house hunting now and my one requirement is a fish room. Hopefully we find a place were the tank can share a wall with the garage.

    Nice powerheads! What made you take the plunge and switch from Jabeos?
  17. Stoned's 210 Upgrade

    Did color start returning? Have you tried any new frags recently?
  18. My newest build frag/growout system

    Clam tank!!!
  19. New frag system

    Nice frag tank. I always wanted to take a shallow tank and add nothing but clams.

    First badge ever! I quit boy scouts when I realized I had to sell stuff door to door.
  21. MockandRoll Reefer 170 (40g)

    I thought so too. I let the favia try to take it down for a few hours then pulled out the half eaten stomata.
  22. MockandRoll Reefer 170 (40g)

    My favia caught a stomata last night.

    Thank you. Reef on!!!
  24. MockandRoll Reefer 170 (40g)

    Not that I am aware of. I got it at a local frag swap and the seller didn't know the name.

    Thanks. There are some vendors getting favias that have amazing colors now. Thanks. I got mine from reefgardener
