  1. No worries. Your system is coming along quite nice. I think I am going to go try the Herbie, I am tired of hearing the seashore in my living room with the single Durso that's on the 180Gal. What is your return pump rated for GPH wise? I have a year old Reeflo Dart that I am hoping will be enough for my return and any reactors I may use?
  2. Lol. I hear ya. I really do have to get my butt in gear. I have pretty much all that I need, with the exception of the adjustable feet for the stand and to skin it. Still deciding on whether I should keep the return pump I already have or go with a new DC return. Not to mention I am gonna have to invite JC and the boys over to help get the old ( Heavy as sin ) behemoth out so that I can put the PA 150 in it's spot. I'll be following along as you continue your build. Been meaning to ask. What type of overflow did you go with. Durso, Bean, Herbie?
  3. Looking good. Hopefully before long, I'll be starting my build.
  4. I did speak with this special LFS Benjy and they have, forced, errr, umm talked me into the Radion. Now as soon as I get me stand back from the welder, the build will start to take shape. Thanks to all who have helped with my decision.
  5. As depressing as it is to loose everything, it would be equally as depressing to know that you gave up. If I can impart some of my uneducated wisdom ( oxymoron ) regarding saltwater. Slow your roll a bit young grasshopper, take a small break, but never quit. You have a beautiful system, it would be a shame for you to sell it due to a slight set back.
  6. Since you are on the "Coast" already, I would suggest you making a trip to "Just Fish" on Pass road. They also sell the heck out of " Real Reef Rock".
  7. I got 1 quote from a LFS for 3, Radion XR30 @ $700 each. However I priced them from Radion and they are listed @ $649 each for a savings of $500 as compared to $2,300 for the Pac Sun. I am not wanting to skimp, but don't know that I need the top of the line either. Which is the reason for my question to the forum. Are the Radions that much better than the AI or Kessil now days? If so how/why?
  8. At $2,300 I am gonna have to give a pass on the Pac Sun. Unless I was looking at the wrong model. "Pandora S " FWIW. The 150 is 60x24x24
  9. Looking to the BRK brain trust to offer me some guidance here. I will be starting my new PA 150 build soon and was wondering which lighting do you prefer? Why? Specifics? Kessil. Radion. AI. My main focus is primarily a mixed reef with the larger percentage of the mixed part directed towards SPS. Thanks
  10. Thanks. I'll give Reef Coral a call.
  11. I know that this is a long shot. But has anyone see, grow or have for sale live Rotifers. I plan on trying my hand at raising baby clowns and figure I would ask here before I order online. Thanks
  12. The rough size of the rocks I am working with are 12x15 some larger, some smaller but not by much. Just to give an idea as to the size boulders I am working with. I rather not bust them up because I know I will never get them back the same way.
  13. How tenacious is this e-marco 400? Will it bond and hold a good bit of off centered weight?
