  4. This just in: INDMAS goes international
  5. Haha nope but I did wear my INDMAS shirt one of the days we were there. So I did a little advertising. 😉
  6. We wanted to visit the sumidia aquarium to see the garden eels but never got over there. I believe I’ve seen this documentary as well. It’s been a little while though.
  7. That’s crazy. Definitely adding these guys to the “maybe” reef safe pile. Glad you caught it in action, and thanks for keeping us up to date.
  8. Wow what a *****, yeah get that dude outta there lol
  9. Well it looks like the blue velvet damselfish is the culprit. I've had frags end up on the sand bed that were sitting on my frag rack. I've been watching and waiting and finally caught him going to pick at a piece and completely pull the frag plug off the rack! Time for him to go!!
  10. Pretty cool!! Did you recruit anyone for INDMAS while over there 😆
  11. wow, that is a big tank. Thanks for sharing.
  12. Looks like a very big tank. There was a documentary I seen on TV that showed some of their shopping areas and one specialized in aquariums. Ones from little 5g all they way up to probably 1000+. They have all kinds of neat things over there
  13. Isn’t the best picture but I saw a tank at least. Haha

  17. Yep, of the ~200lb of rock in there, about 3/4 of it is realreef, the rest is long-established rock from my previous tank. Some of it had been wet for 10+ years. Also have a marine pure brick in the sump.
  18. Plumbing this time around went as good as it could, I was not in a hurry and I rearranged the skimmer and UV to be more accessible so things went pretty smooth. I also changed from external to internal pumps for this tank and added an additional one to help with all the auxiliary equipment. This eliminated one large manifold system that was complex to build the last time. The tank has a center overflow with all connection inside of it. The (3) two inch drain lines were dropped straight down into the sump with 1/4 turn valves to regulate flow and the (2) 1.5 inch returns were plumbed separately to ensure that if one pump failed then flow would continue between the sump and tank. The skimmer, chiller, calcium reactor, and the Macro-algae Reactor were plumbed to one of the return pumps and the UV was plumbed to the second return pump. I also learned from previous builds to use as many unions as I can, this helped to prevent bad joints. I had the back panel drilled in each corner with (2) two inches holes, one would be used for the closed loop and the other one is what I call the Oh S_ _T hole. This is for the off chance that the drains to the sump clog and would keep the tank from over filling. I will post some pictures later
  19. John, do you have any other rock besides real reef? What about marine pure blocks? Real reef rock is pretty dense and not as porous as natural rock like pukani and even synthetic Marco. Perhaps the bacterial surface area for anaroebic bacteria is not sufficient?
  20. I’m in the same boat 180 gallon stn of all my sps. Acros, montis, anacropora, stylos, First comes color loss then stn from random spots on the colonies. I’ve checked everything I could. My next move is going to be to add new bacteria/micro fauna by way of live rock or live sand. Hopefully the addition of diversity will reset any Imbalance that’s causing my heart ache. your not alone.
