  1. Everything bought and paid for this afternoon. Mods can close this thread if they like.
  2. Items that have been spoken for: Smart ATO AI Prime and FYI, the MP10 does not have a wet side. I sold my QD and new wet side some time back.
  3. I did kind of put my phone number in the original post but uh...ok.
  4. Been a long while since I’ve popped in but I’m getting rid of everything I’ve got left. I’ve got tanks, controllers/probes, pumps, lights, testers/tests, filter mediums, name it. Now, I’m willing to put a $500 price tag on EVERYTHING. There is more than what is pictured so if you pick it all up, you’ll get your money’s worth. I’m willing to sell items separately if you see something you want so the sooner someone comes and picks it all up, the more stuff you’ll walk away with. I’m doing it this way so I don’t have to inventory every damn little thing and put a price tag on each thing. I hope the moderators will understand. Everything is as-is. No refunds. I’d sooner throw it all away than deal with that mess. Anyway, best to reach me by text at 2two5-two8one-1five6four.
  5. Been kind of busy lately. Training someone at work so I've had to limit my "extra-curricular" internet usage and we've been busy on top of that. Tank has been on hold pending how the repairs OF the repairs go at the house. There is a chance that they will be doing a BUNCH of sanding to the texture so I didn't want to add anything before in case I need to move the tank.
  6. Let me know. If you know someone in town that might be heading out that way soon, they're welcome to pick them up from me also.
  7. I've got a bottle of cipro if you can get into BR this weekend. I'd be happy to give you a full treatment's worth of pills.
  8. Thanks, Jenson. Though we are back home, we are still not "finished". Contractor still has some pretty large items that must be redone / repaired so we are still weeks/possibly months away from being "whole" again. In the meantime, I've enjoyed the reprieve the tank has offered me. Wish you and yours the best...the situation is very difficult for those affected.
  9. Height could be higher to keep from having to bend over when you're wanting to really look at the tank. Don't think legs would be the route I'd go if I were to add height though. Maybe a platform style riser to support the entire bottom would be sturdier and keep the stand from warping/sagging.
  10. No real changes to report. Saw a large increase in copepod population in the last week so I know the tank is still maturing. Getting close to maybe start picking up some zoanthids. Going to start with small quantity frags and let them grow out so I'm not trying to figure out how to incorporate larger rocks into the existing 'scape. I want them to grow into/onto what I already have.
  11. I hate doing big water changes for a number of reasons and 1 gallon is a breeze. When the 200 was running, I was doing daily 5g swap for a while...still easier than doing a 35-50g changes at one time.
  12. Trying to iron out my daily maintenance into something manageable and proactive. I know how easy it is to put off certain tasks and with small tanks, you really have to stay on top of them or they'll go south fast. I'm feeding nothing but frozen right now (LRS) but only once every 2 days until I get a feel for how much the right amount will be. I picked up just a few small turbo snails to help me out a bit but I don't plan on adding much more CuC...I plan to manually remove as much solid waste as I can as part of my daily maintenance before it has a chance to break down. Daily Chores as they are now-in order: Empty skimmer cup Clean glass Siphon detritus Blow off rocks w/ turkey baste 1g water change I also picked up a small tail spot blenny on Saturday. I've always wanted one but knew I'd never see it in the 200. This may be the only other fish I add...the clowns pretty much dominate the tank and bio-load. Speaking of which, they've already fallen back into their routine and started prepping an area to lay eggs again..guess moving them didn't create much of a disruption. I'm starting to keep an eye out for some corals but I plan on being patient and picky about what I want. I've had to fight the urge to pick up any mushrooms or soft corals as they aren't apart of my final plan. I do want a couple different zoas but I be picky about what variety and where they come from. I don't think the tank is quite ready for any LPS just yet
  13. Son of a. A chance you hit or bumped it when you were fishing the clowns out of you sump?
  14. Let there be life! Mama in the foreground and papa in the background: I need to get a little CuC but I've never bought one for a bare bottom tank before? Obviously, no sand dwellers/cleaners. Any tips? Also, I know I've said this a thousand times but a big shout out to Jordan for taking care of my clowns and for everyone else who helped or offered to help. It's been a long 7 months and we still have a long way to go with our contractor and the work they've done (company name and details withheld due to possible litigation). I digress..everyone has been a big help in getting back a little sliver of normalcy (aquarium keeping) that helped keep me sane and have something to look forward to. Thanks BRK!
