  1. Thanks for the input guys. I am running carbon in a media bag that I dropped into one of my filter socks. It has gotten rid of the mentioned odors and has cleared up my water pretty good as well. I do regular water changes in my tanks (every 3-4 weeks) and have not had any real issues but decided to run carbon from the research I had done on it. Before now, I had only ran it after medications or treatments in my tanks. Being fairly new to the hobby, I am kinda hesitant to just jump in and do what others do without extensive research.
  2. Who all here is running a quarantine tank and what is your quarantine practice? Precautionary treatments, observation periods, etc,etc!!! Thanks in advance for the input.
  3. FYI, the Hattiesburg Petco is doing their dollar a gallon sale.
  4. Anyone here that can offer me some input on running carbon media on a mixed reef tank? Pros and cons? When to run it and when not to? I did search a little on here before deciding to post a new topic. Sorry if this is a noob question as I am still a little “green” in the hobby! ? Thanks in advance for any and all input.
  5. So, after a little while of playing with the MP60's, they are turned all the way down and that's the only setting that will not cause a sand storm in my 120g. I have positioned them different ways and worked with sync and anti sync combos that have all washed my LS all over the tank. I crank them up for a few seconds every few days to stir up the detritus and send it to the overflows but this is not something I want to keep doing. I would rather set it and leave it. Options or opinions? One of the 60's has been factory reconditioned with a new wet side and upgraded to a QD and the other has a new wet side. May be Willing to swap for equal value wavemakers or sell them and buy a pair of 40's. what you guys think?? Thanks.
  6. I am quite a noob with hobby and was wanting some experienced reefers out here to give me their opinions on this. I have 2-MP60's that I got from captbenjy and was planning on running them on my 120 that's in the cycle process as I am typing this post and wondering if I should go with 2-40's instead? The one MP60 I have on it now is a beast. When I crank it up it really makes a lot of movement and I am wanting the two on there to sync them for lagoon feature. So the question is: Should I try and swap someone one of my 60's for two 40's, if that's an even swap, or should I just run the 60's at like 25% and keep em? Thanks in advance and btw, I will be posting this weekend on the new 120 build. ?
  7. I have done some guards and a few other small scale Acrylic work. Nothing of this magnitude. I have access to a c&c machine and/or laser cutting machine. As far as the polishing, never ever even heard about it until this post. I will not go over 21" in height and using 1/2" if I decide to do it. What I have read recommended going up to 1/2 " if going to 24" high but.......... Saintsfan420, you got a source on cell cast Acrylic in 1/2" thickness? The only places around here to get acrylic is from a glass shop and they all have to order the 1/2". And the prices are better on the web even with shipping!!!
  8. Been looking into a tank around the 100gal range. I like the acrylic tanks but don't care for the prices! I have seen a few write ups on the web about DIY Acrylic tanks and have priced the cost of cell cast Acrylic sheets and have come to the conclusion that it will be around 1/2 price. But I am a little hesitant for the obvious reasons. Anyone here done a tank of this size or larger that would care to chime in and offer some advice? I'm all about saving some money when I can, but I don't want it to end up as an expensive lesson learned in the process. Thanks, T_BONE
  9. Man, that thing looks AMAZING!! Can't wait to see it all stocked up.
  10. Cool. Thanks for the input bro. Sounds like my build is going to be a Planet Aquarium!
  11. Sweet looking setup Adam. Any complaints on the Planet Aquarium tank? I like the looks of the PA due to the extra room inside the tank as the overflow is on the back. What's your thoughts on it?
  12. Must not because I would have found it by now with all the searching I have done.
  13. I have never seen a Planet tank in person, but the reviews seem to be that they are very nice. And the overflow is what I like most.
  14. I have no idea! I talked with Brian at Aqua Hut in BR today. They are a dealer for them. That being said, if anyone knows a website for Planet post it up.
