  8. I replaced my sump last weekend and have the old one if anyone is interested. It's a standard 55g with the following sections in this order: Drain/skimmer, return, fuge, ato reservoir. You could remove the baffles and end up with a clean slate. Would rather see someone use it than me simply get rid of it. Free or a frag if you're feeling generous. Other item is a 3 year old BRS dual reactor. Does not come with a pump because I fed it off my manifold. In good shape and was working perfectly when removed last week. I think $25 is more than a fair price, but I guess time will tell. Pictures below...let me know if you have any interest. I'm in Naples.
  9. Thanks for the info Mike I'll check it out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  10. 50lbs?!?! Lookin for the lifetime supply? I just buy the premixed bags from BRS. It's free shipping, no minimum. I use about 2 gallons of solution a year for a 180g tank and I'm running a calc reactor which adds to the depletion. Not worth it to me to buy in bulk and deal with moisture issues down the line. It's on sale now for $9.89/gal.
  11. looks awesome
  12. Last week
  13. Does anyone know where in Lehigh Acres, Fort Myers, or even Cape Coral I can go and buy Mag Flakes in a 50lbs bag? I have read in the past folks have done group buys, but i wasnt here for that. Any help would be appreciated, would rather get local than pay for shipping. Thanks John

  17. We ground some meat this evening, found a good mix and ratio that works well. The burger was juicy, but did not drip of fat. 6lbs of Angus brisket ($2.99 /lbs) 5lbs of Angus short rib chuck ($4.39 /lbs) 6lbs of Angus top sirloin ($3.78 /lbs) 4lbs of Bacon, smoked ($3.01 /lbs) All the meat was trimmed up pretty well, no byproducts, waste, cartridge, etc We also ground in some shallots and garlic right into it. No salts, preservatives or other junk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  19. Prices are obo btw, I'm def not tryna get rich off this just make some room in my tank since these things are growing so fast..
  20. Perfect. I'll be waiting
  21. So I have a huge tree of BCHC that's just getting too big for my 55g so I'm gonna frag it down some as i really have no other options with it growing up near the glass again.. I'll try to cut down frags per request but the plan is to start fragging on Sunday.. So for less than 10 heads I'll do $15 per head, and for anything more than 10 heads I'll do $10 per head.. I also have two bicolored hammers already fragged with about 20+ heads on each one that I'll do for $150 each.. I can provide pictures, videos, or you can just come by and check them out whenever I'm available (usually after 5pm during the week, or generally available on weekends) but just let me know..! All in all the large colony has about 50-60 heads on it, and I'd sell the whole thing, but I doubt anyone would want the whole thing since I'd be at like $7.50/head.. I'll see if it gauges any interest over the next 2-3 days and if nothing, it's gettin chopped down.. Thanks!
  22. I dont have any frags at the moment. When i do ill let you know. Heres a pic of the colony.
  23. Ed do you have any frags of WWC Somewhere over the rainbow mille? I got one from you over a year ago but lost it when my tank crash. Would like to get another one. Also if you have a picture of the mother colony I would love to see it.
  24. My new tank is fairly new (3 months) so I haven't cleaned the sump. However Im running a auto neck cleaner on my skimmer and every time it runs the little bit of gunk that has build up in the neck from the previous day (neck cleaner runs once a day) gets dropped into the skimmer body and exists through the output pipe on the skimmer. Over time this has accumulated around my skimmer so it will need to be vacuumed out on a regular basis. I run 2x 250 micron socks so my sump stays clean for the most part. On my previous tank, the 300g display I had a 125g sump with a refugium. Even though I ran filter socks on that tank I only had them on the main drain so over time debris would accumulate in my refugium section. I only had cheato so every 2 or 3 months I would drain the refugium section and vacuum it with a shop vac to get all the debris out. Aside from that I didn't really do much cleaning in the sump area other than the regular cleaning of pumps, heaters and probes about every 6 months.
  25. I do not have any sand, rock or algae in my sump As it gets dirty I empty it out and use a wet vac to get the left overs. I them fill back up with fresh salt water and turn it back on. I do this only when it needs cleaned not every water change.
  26. Thank you both. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
  27. That looks great, man! Glad to see another neat freak. [emoji6] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  28. My sump is fairly simple, it only has a skimmer, a reactor pump for two reactors, and the return pump. I scrape the sump walls about once a month, I always siphon out the sump during my once a week water changes (I don't use filter socks and I blow out the rocks about once a day.. so a lot of the junk falls down into the sump), and I clean out all the pumps once every three months.
