    Aqua Medic skimmer - cheap or free

    Pretty cool. I had this things big brother? The turboflotor 10000, 6'tall monster. Looked identical to that but much bigger

    Free 1hp AquaEuroUSA chiller

    I'd be interested in it in case of a power outage or ac outrage if no one else needs it. If someone else can use it or needs it, I'd rather them have it.

    Fishinbob's Reef Journey Elos 160xl

    Tank was looking great but I'm sure you'll have the red sea looking even better! Let me know if there's any "accidental frags" available after the move

    Stock update from Santa Monica Filtration

    That is 22 hours of light. Nutrients last checked on tank with no algae scrubber growth were ~1 nitrate and .35 phosphate. No real algae issues in either tank though. No algae scrubber growth tank is 180g sps tank. Tank with lots of growth is 400g soft reef. The surf is much undersized for the 400g probably why growth is so thick.

    Stock update from Santa Monica Filtration

    First time running an algae scrubber. Have 1 of these surfs in each of my tanks. 1 tank grows great (pic shown) other tank I can't seem to get growth on. I think nutrients are too low. Thinking about getting a rain unit for the tank that's growing well.

    Red Sea Max C130

    I wouldn't mind a couple peppermints that actually eat aiptasia. I acquired some rock/coral that have a few aiptasis. Was going to go that nudi branch way but those suckers are pricey for how many they say you need

    Scratch removal from Glass Tank ??

    Nice work! I'm resetting my 180g after Irma whiped both my tanks out and while redoing my rock scape I put my first nice big scratch in the front pane. Any way to remove scratches while filled?

    After Red Slime Remover

    Run a carbon reactor. Turn off ato if you have one. Then hook skimmer up with output wide open, if you have a drain line on your skimmer run it into a large waste container or outside. Top off with saltwater. Skimmer will settle down in a few hours.

    How far is too far to and try to solve low PH

    Question-why have the pvc stick out so far? Why not stub it out right by the house so it's not so noticeble? I would run the pic as close to skimmer as you can then hook up vinyl hose next size up from skimmer line and connect that to the pic so you don't have much air lose.

    WTB big external skimmer

    Well...I had bought a deltec ap902 off a forum...it came in today through UPS...box was crushed in and had a hole in it, opened it up and skimmer body is cracked all the way down the side, one of the pumps volutes is broken, both pumps back covers are broken, and the collection cut is cracked around the rim. They must of thrown it off the back of the truck. So....Now I am waiting to hear from UPS claims to see if they will do anything. But it looks like i am still in the market for a skimmer...
