  2. Hey Will! Thanks for the help buddy! I picked it up Yesterday. When I went to go and get it, it still had water in it and fish, etc. We drained water down to about 1inch off the sand, and then the tank was 2 heavy for the 3 of us to lift w. the sand in it so we took it out and put it all in 5g buckets w/ lids (there was still water from tank in the sand 5g buckets ). Well we just left everything in the garage, and i've been out there all last night n today just cleaning stuff, but don't know what to do w/ the 7 buckets of sand b/c theres also alot of different crabs and nass. snails that are still in there?**********How long can the refugium sit w/o going bad?******How long until ( I'd say like 100+ crabs/Nass.snails) they die? *****All the plumbing is ready, I just don't want my fish/corals to react in a bad way, and certainly aren't making 100g of S.W just to clean freakin sand! If you know a way of doing this better, it would be much appreciated! Thanks always,
  3. Hey everyone, Yesterday I finally purchased my Dream Aquarium, a 180g Bow front w/ Sump/Refugium, Euro reef Usa Skimmer, etc. The question I have is.......We took down the tank yesterday, and put about 150lbs of live sand in some 5g buckets. I have 7 of them sitting in my garage along with the Aquarium + everything else. I have been cleaning everything all morning ( soaking stuff in white vinegar like pumps, pvc, etc ). **************Can someone Please tell me or help me out with what to do w/ the sand? B/c I am transfering everything ( Fish, coral, live rock ) into the 180 after I get it cleaned up. Idk what to do? Its my first time attempting anything of the sort by myself. ***Also if anyone close to me ( around the Blue Bayou, Prairieville area has any free time today, as I know a lot of the guys on BRK live around here!**** I will pay them to come help me in anyway that they can! I just want to do this right, and hope you all understand! Thanks everyone,
  4. Thanks guys for the welcoming! I am so excited to get to go to my first outing/workshop that I will be able to not only learn more from, but also get to meet a lot of people in the Reefing community! : ) God Bless,
  5. Hey JT! I have been wanting ( for the longest ) to learn about acrylic welding and never could find any info on were to buy this weld-on product. I have a Great little Reef Aquarium going, but my sump is extremely old ( the rubbermaid style ) and have been looking to build my own sump out of acrylic. *******I was just wondering if you guys are are full of guest yet? I would love to attend this work shop, and put my vote in. I also ( if your not full yet ) wanted to know if I could bring anything, as far as food/drinks etc. This will be my first attendance with others in the Reef/SW Hobby, and since your putting it on and doing alot of the work, if there is anything at all in which I can do in order to help please don't hesitate! Thank you and God Bless,
  6. Hey there! Just something that might help you a little bit.....I am currently running 3 250w Metal Halides on a 90g Aquarium along with 2 54w UVL Brand Super Actinic bulbs. I have tryed 10k MH's, 14k, and currently am running a 15k in middle and 2 20k's for the 2 outer bulbs. Honestly, I found ( I have all types of coral in Aquarium ) that the 14k MH's worked the best as far as growth rate on LPS coral, 10k's are way to yellow and I took them out after a few weeks. Now the 20k's, that I have had running for a few weeks now, along w/ the 15k in the middle, have significantly dropped the Algae growth that the 10k's were creating, and give the fish/coral a Amazing look! With a 180g, I would either go w/ 3-4 L.E.D fixtures (If you think about it, buying the lighting your talking about getting, unless, already have some, or can find them cheap) will end up being cheaper or = to the others, plus you will get a longer life span! Or you could go with 2 48inch t-5 fixtures that are 6 bulb each, or 3 250w MH's. I find that the more types of fixtures or lights you start to add, the more confusing/expensive it will get.******Please feel free to ask me any questions about lights, spectrum to go with, etc. Thanks and good luck with your build :obscene-drinkingcheers:
  7. Thank Shayne :greetings-wavegreen: , I sure hope so man. I have been looking around ...for it seems 2 weeks now on C.L, LFS, forum, and no success. I know it will come in time, I just have to be patient and it will all work out for the best. Thanks for the inspiration Buddy!
  8. Man ur a lucky guy Shayne to have a nice 150g ! I am praying I can find a good new home for my Aquarium/ Aquariums , and have something like that in the near future!
  9. Hey there Shayne! I can't thank you enough for the incredible detail and also the time out of your day you took to get me to where I needed to be w/ Photobucket! ! The good news is that I finally got some of my pictures on here! Haha, but I also accidentally put them in the wrong spot on the forums I believe, but hey, its my first time for doing it so I have to give myself a little slack. Thanks again Buddy :obscene-drinkingcheers: !
  10. Hey Buddy! Thank you so much for the compliment you made about my Tank, that really meant a lot to me!
  11. Hey there! I am looking to actually upgrade to a 150g or 180g in the next few weeks, so hopefully I will be able to have more room plus add some more wrasses. Also the 75g is about to go also with a much larger room divider aquarium downstairs as the 90g, 40g, and 20 are upstairs. 90g and 20g are in my Bedroom, once I get the 150-180g it will be placed across the whole wall in my room.
