  4. Hi fellow reefers, I have a MRC dual chamber calcium reactor that has a blue line/Pan World 10PX 180gph as a circulation pump. My question to you all is for you think the reactor would function better is I replace the current pump with one that has an output of 750gph? The reason i thinking about this is with the current pump doesn't seem to be circulating the water in the first chamber as much as I'd like. I am seeing excess c02 bubbles in the chamber which is not what I'm supposed to be seeing. Your thoughts please! John Reynolds aka jtspeedy21 Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  5. I've always wanted some pipe fish but heard they are hit and miss and need lower flow like seahorses. Keep me updated cause I'm interested in seeing how he does! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  6. I have an AquaEuroUSA 1hp chiller for sale. It’s about 6 or 7 years old and it still cools water as well as it did when it was new. I used it on a 400g system and then a 210g system. Now that all I have is a 50g cube with led lighting, I don’t need it any more. Being perfectly honest, it has issues. The bottom and sides are rusty and the built-in thermostat has failed. But I have a new, in the box, Ranco thermostat controller that can run the chiller. The chiller was $1100 new and costs $1300 now, the new thermostat was $50. Given its old, rusty and uses a remote thermostat, I’m only asking $250 or best offer. At $250 I’ll offer a full refund if you aren’t happy with it before the end of 2 months. Take it for less and it’s yours. Reply here, send me a PM or send a text to 239 699-6339. These photos are from ads on the internet. If you want actually photos, text me and I'll send whatever you want. Screenshot 2018-10-20 10.37.27 by Ron Lindensmith, on Flickr Screenshot 2018-10-20 10.38.20 by Ron Lindensmith, on Flickr

    Beach Time

    OK, word on the local news is the Red Tide is much less than earlier this year. And the current long range weather prediction is for west to northwest winds from Sat the 27th thru Tues the 30th. They aren't very strong west winds (barely double digits) and it doesn't appear to be a cold front, but it could be the first good shelling/collecting day on Sanibel since early Spring of this year. I'll be keeping an eye on the weather and we'll see what happens. BTW, we didn't get to go to the beach after Hurricane Michael because we were on a plane to Albuquerque, NM for the Balloon Fiesta. Between Elaine and I we took over 1100 photos during the 2 to 3 hour launch of over 600 balloons among nearly 100,000 people at the site. They start with a few just before dawn and they are all airborne within 2 1/2 hours. Feel free to go to my Flickr site and see way more photos (a couple of examples are below). Here is a link directly to my album and you don't need to join or even register. https://www.flickr.com/photos/161573393@N04/albums/72157700795108051 And for those of you concerned about the Red Tide affect on critters you might collect off the beach, here is my first hand account. We went out one Saturday at noon when the Red Tide reports were near their worst. Algiers Beach had just 3 cars in the parking lot when we arrived. The beach had a dead fish every 10 to 20 feet on average. Some spots were absolutely littered with baby sand dollars (some still alive). I found quite a few 'sand' anemones and decided to try and rescue a couple. I put them in the peanut butter jar I was carrying. For the first 2 hours the tide was going out and we saw no dead fish in the water. But when we were back to the area where we leave the beach to go back to your car, the tide was coming back in and as I did a water change in the jar with the anemones, I counted over 35 dead fish in the water. I was very concerned for the well being of the anemones and also didn't want them to contaminate my 50g cube. So for the next 3 weeks I kept the nems in the jar and twice a day I dumpped the water in the jar down the sink and refilled it with water from the tank. At the end of 3 weeks they seemed to be doing very well, so I put them in the tank. They both moved under the egg crate platform my live rock sits on and set themselves into the sand. They are still there and doing just fine. I also saw absolutely no ill effects on the rest of the tank. So I guess the short version of this is, I'll collect critters if I find ones I can use, but I'll quarantine them and keep a close eye on them for longer than I usually do.

    Tank has seemed to stabilize a bit so i started adding some of my acro colonies over from the 90 gallon, hope to get all of them transferred over this week. Started to ramp up my lights recently and have started to see some better growth, but i need more coverage! looking into some other options maybe another hyrdra if i can find a black friday deal. Heres some recent shots hitting about 75 days since the tanks seen water little cyano and algea but it will pass. FTS some side view one of my favorites purple stylo some of the acro colonies added a purple valida and a neat teal smooth skin [/url] finally seeing color on the pearl berry frag
  11. Put a Cowboys star on the back of the tank, I'd be all over it!

  16. And sorry Jeff but the Steelers mug does not come with this system.
  17. We are not going to set this up. We won it at the reef conference 2016. Never set it up. The stand was built by Joefish. Comes with the plumbing and glass top for the tank. There are 2 power sweeps included is wanted. This tank has a corner overflow. At this time we are not going to break up the setup. We have this posted in other places for $600.00. For anyone who see this post we will do $550.00

  20. Now that I'm getting some more sps I thought I'd get some fish known for eating pests. Got a pair of dragon face pipe fish, and a juvi yellow coris wrasse. Also got a green canary blenny and a red goni frag. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

  24. Earlier
  25. Have some free chaeto and probably some sterns of caulerpa prolifera from the sump trimming today
  26. Thanks. Tank has seemed to hit its stride parameter wise about a year ago. Sometime after irma. Whatever coral i still had left started to rebound and show some growth. So I've been slowly trying to add to the livestock. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  27. Well John, you may only update every couple of years, but it's a nice looking update. Things are looking great.
