    180 Gallon Build Question

    Yes, the dart hybrid will run all of that plus your tank fine. I had the same pump on my 180, ran my reactors, frag tank and main tank. That was with the snapper impeller in and it turned down a bit as well.

    Corrected*** +1. They have royally screwed a few hobbyists who bought their tanks which had failures.

    Need A Loan!

    Especially for one that's had such poor breeding practices to get it to this point that it has pretty pronounced bulldog face...

    Just Snagged Some Sweet Reef Books...

    I ended up paying $160 for my set. Mint condition
  5. So I have been looking forever, and last night I finally got a set of "Corals of the World" by Veron. If you don't know about these, they are basically "THE" coral identification books, and the sets of 3 are usually somewhere between $500-$1000. I picked these up from a guy in Port Charlotte for a fraction of that price. I spent all last night geeking out and reading about the different corals :P/>

    Light Strength

    Go with the 14k phoenix bulbs for the halides if they are the double ended bulbs. I used to run a pair on a 120 with t5 actinics I loved the colors.

    The "it Never Fails Sale"....

    Not a bad idea. I'm moving and don't even need a big tank (the wife would probably kill me if I got it), but I would even go in for a $20 ticket for 1/30 chance to win the tank.

    After 5 Years Of Searching...

    Add a sweet bonus speaking of hard to find ORA frags, I think today I found a source for ORA Dustin's Deep-water. If you have done any research on their frags, you'll know that this one has basically been lost to the hobby. I'll let everyone know how the frag looks when I get it in 3 weeks or so

    It was around $70 plus tax, so not too bad. It came from the Aquarium and Reef Center over on 41 near the intersection of Beacon Manor.

    Quick cell phone picture: BTW, not sure if they still have it or not, but there was another frag there when I picked up this one.
  14. I've finally found a frag of ORA Blue Iris. I fell in love with it when I saw a whole colony shot of the mother colony... http://glassbox-desi...-parent-colony/ I've asked every lfs if they can get out for the past few years. Finally Viet said that ARC was able to get some! Hmm... once I figure out why I cant upload the pic I'll post the one of it in the bag. The lights weren't on when I got it home (ducked out of work to go get it) so I don't have any pics of it in the tank yet. Ehh, whatever, it uploaded fine to photobucket:

    Wanted: Lionfish

    Okay, I'll let you know if we plan to head down to see if you already got one.
