    Are any of those pieces available, or saving them for future Mrs D'Huyvetter?

    Is that(those) tunze waveboxes still working for you? Same old big block motors in them?
  7. Personally, I'd pickup a Rubbermaid trough/stock tank, the 100gal is a good size ... slap a couple of power heads and a skimmer, if need be in it and call it a day. https://www.rubbermaidcommercial.com/material-handling/farm-garden/stock-tanks/?sku=FG424288BLA https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/rubbermaid-structural-foam-stock-tanks-100-gal-capacity

    Wore out another razor blade today. Four weekends in a row with water changes and skimmer cleaning. Critters don't know how to act. Even put out a couple frags.
  15. Hello everyone, In the near future I will be doing a complete rebuild of my approx 700gal system. I am in need of a small system say 75 to 100 gal to house my fish and coral while the rebuild is taking place. What would be ideal is to borrow/rent a unused system for 4 to 6 months. I don't really want to buy something as I won't need it after the rebuild is done. If someone can help me please PM me. Thanks John aka jtspeedy21 Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  16. If the Finnex 500w Hester is still available I’ll take it. I can pick up on Monday or Tuesday.
  17. Yea, that's probably it. I used to have a nice size piece of it, few years ago. Save me a piece?

    Tough to say for sure because I ended up losing the frags due to temp difference in my dip water. After placing back into the tank I didn’t notice anymore bugs though they were slimed up pretty good and not sure if I’d be able to see. Chris

    I had a crash a couple years back and decided to consolidate what was left into one tank and sold off a bunch of live rock. I wanted to go with slower growing corals that required less pruning! This one is lit with LED's. It is Giovanni's old 300 (for those of you that were around about 8-9 years ago). The solar tubes are still going strong on the other 300. It is now a freshwater plant tank with discus. Although, I did have to put some light screen (roughly 30%) on the tubes to cut the light down.
  22. Not sure. I just checked her website and did not see any sponges. She used to carry this very sponge a couple years ago

    That's interesting, I always thought red bugs / black bugs usually were a acro problem, not montipora. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    So you were able to get them off with bayer? Is that what you dipped the frags in? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    This was a good article on it. Super small like red bugs, but black. Same effects as red bugs. Stressed and reduced polyp extension but no stn or rtn. 30 mins In 5x concentrated reef dip did not kill them off. Bayer advanced did. https://www.advancedaquarist.com/2010/1/corals

    Care to elaborate? Don't think I ever came across parasitic copepods. Got any pics? What does thr damage to the coral look like? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
