  1. Hope all works out in the long run. The left seam on the side panel, seems a little light on silicone. Some of the seams seem a bit sloppy. That's a lot of water to mess with.

  5. Just get a quality unit, and quality regulator. Build some safeties into it. For instance, the older korallin units had a bad habit of clogging the effluent line, causing the internal media to mush, build up pressure, then finally blowing the effluent line open and dumping the resulting disaster... that usually crashed the tank. rule of thumb, the more efficient the unit is, the less of a low pH problem you'll have in the display.
  6. Nice looking pieces Chris! yiu didn’t put a price on the Duncan in the last pic, just FYI.
  7. I need to get a lid for the new tank... had a couple of jumpers.. 😕
  8. We made some changes to the website a few days ago, it seems to have improved the speed... can anyone else confirm or deny if the site seems more responsive now...?

  11. Won't make this event, unfortunately.... BUT... I'll be conducting my own Poker Run, in Los Angeles, at the wholesalers.. or maybe at restaurants. 😜
  12. I'll take a phosyntethic sponge frag off your hands... of both purple and red?
  13. Jeff! No need for the Tang Police - Midnight is in good hands now, making friends with other fins! Part 2. The problem with "Midnight" rescues are that you don't get to fully appreciate them at the time. In this rescues case, the call came in; mid afternoon, and it went about like this.. Caller: Marquito ! Me: Sí, speaking.. que pasa señor!??? Caller: ehh, Marquito; ais have de goods. Ehh.. choo comeh y pickup? Me: uh... When? Today? Caller: Sí. Hurry. very nice! Mui Bonita. Ehh.. mui pocito. Click. So... Pack a bag, and get ready. Next day, midnight'ish the operation BlackOutWackOut occured. I brought a bucket, actually 2! Also brought a cooler, a bubbler, a CO2 scrubber and some snacks. In the blink of an eye it's done. We double bucket and air gap the container, bubbler in, co2 scrubber running and en route into the proverbial sunset. It's done. Home a bit later, we start the medicated acclimation bath, all is well. Well.. until the fish get to that point where they very kindly request to be removed from the bath; as described in part one, that's when your heart skips a beat and you wonder if you left them in too long.. nope, quick transfer over and a couple reallllly long minutes later they resume swimming, no longer curled up, damn near lifeless floating around. Success! Here is a picture of Midnight, being his usual dark self. As you can see, maybe, he's quite dark, like the sky on a moonless night. Tough seeing much of him, when he's hiding in the rock work. More on the ich, and possible case of mistaken identity later... in the next post <more in part 3, tomorrow>
