  1. Local pickup only New Orleans, la I really don't know what he's worth, but he's a nice size and has been in my established tank for 3 years. The only reason I want him gone is so I can get a flame angel. $30. .
  2. I already have that ATO...thanks! Is there any benefit to having the glass tops beside less evaporation?
  3. Hello all, I've got two custom glass tops on my 75gal reef with two messily a360we's. I've decided to have a canopy built to enclose/hide the kessils and auto feeder, so i was wondering if i should keep the glass tops once the canopy is on? The canopy will be custom and fully enclosed (no chance for jumpers). I've read that glass reduces the light but also helps with evaporation. Any suggestions? If i need a new piece of glass cut for the auto feeder, that's no big deal either.
  4. Well if for some reason you wanna flip it, I'll pay you more than what you paid
  5. Captbenjy you bought the kessil i wanted for my nuvo 10gal! If you decide to resell it, let me know.
  6. Hey guys and gals, I have a 75g reef-ready tank (drilled with an overflow box). It came with a inlet cover to attach to the drain bulkhead, but it seems that using that will keep the water level very low in the overflow area and cause a lot of splashing from the water falling from the top of the overflow to the drain line at the bottom. After doing some research, I came across the "durso standpipe." Is this the best way to drain a sump? Others have said it is quiet and safer. I definitely want a safe way to plumb the tank in case of power/pump failure. What do you suggest?
  7. I'm breaking down my 29gal to set up a 75gal, so I'm going to need more rock. My LFS recommended dry/dead rock since it is cheaper and easier to arrange. Also, they said I can use my current live rock to mix with this dead rock to bring it "alive" during the cycling process. Does anyone have experience with dry/dead rock or using live rock to bring it alive? Pros and cons? Is it better to just spend more on live rock, or is it okay to mix the two since I'm starting over and have time to let it cycle?
