    Mike - I certainly hope to be able to make it. Hopefully my tank is ready for some fun stuff by then.
  5. So I have ordered my Simplicity return pump, and Simplicity skimmer. I have also ordered all the plumbing pieces I need to replace the stock valve with the gate valve. It will probably be a week before everything arrives, so there will not be a lot of updates until then. The next steps will be getting my dry rock. I will need to go to Premium aquatics, and hand select the pieces I need to make a really nice tower. I plan on using Marco rock for the build, and then utilizing the Marco Cement to make it one safe secure structure. Has anyone done this before, and how did it work out?

    Yeah they’re older haylides. Just not sure if brand or watts or anything. Picked everything up cheap and extremely dirty on marketplace. Can’t wait to add some stuff to it.

    75g reef, no clue what the lights are lol. ASMg2 skimmer (not yet setup) lots of rock, too much sand. Just ordered a recirculating powerhead and heater. Tank is only a few days up and running. Out of town this week and hoping I don’t come home to a disaster.

  21. I dipped a few nights ago and have put them on a rack off the sandbed. The others looked like they were being bothered by asteria's, to which I have plucked and flushed. They have made a turn around and are looking better. However the ones in the photo are still closed and starting to look like they are melting. I'm thinking because they were on the sandbed, was the main reason for the issue. I had a little bit of a cynao outbreak and it took hold on the frags.
  22. Paul I would coral rx dip just to be safe. Do you have any asteria in the tank or other tankmates that may have taken a liking to them? You could dip set them back in tank and see how they do for a couple of weeks. if no improvement put them in separate tank for a couple of weeks to see. just an idea
  23. Yes I did a 3D Reef diffuser, mainly to reduce shimmer, but also to reduce the light that is going into the eyes of people on the couch. I also now need to order a bunch of plumbing for the gate valve.
  24. Awesome! Went with a diffuser too? I have always liked these tanks. If I ever go to a tank with a sump this would be my choice. Can’t wait to see what you do with it.
  25. I recently received a Hanna Alk checker as a gift. Figuring alk was not as consistent as I would prefer in my little tank. When I ran it for the first time I was shocked to see my alk was at 7.4. First year it stayed pretty steady around 8.5 - 8.4. I then thought the MG would be the culprit for being low Well I spent 2.5 hours with the tank this morning. Running multiple tests, btw i need to get a mg and ca Hanna checker cause these drop tests suck. The Hanna checkers are so easy to use! Anyway tested the tank before a waterchange, new mixed saltwater, and after the waterchange. Also did a big cleaning of the pump, return line, and rear chambers. Flow is turned up to max on the Sicce 0.5 pump with the stock return nozzle. Getting tons of flow now too! May need to turn down the flow a bit, but we will see. So here are my results: 8-18-19 Pre-Waterchange Tank MG 1410 ALK 7.3 CA 470 TEMP 78.4 SALINITY 1.026 Mixed Saltwater before Waterchange MG 1470 ALK 9.5 CA 490 TEMP 78.6 SALINITY 1.026 Tank after waterchange MG 1440 ALK 8.2 CA 480 TEMP 78.4 SALINITY 1.026 It looks like my MG and Calcium are pretty steady but the Alk is dropping a bit more than I would prefer. I’m thinking either multiple changes weekly or dosing. Not sure I want to go the dosing route just for Alk but open to suggestions. I think WC’s might be best for this tank.
  26. Lately I’ve been reading a lot about them. Great wide flow, and powerful in a small package. The only thing I’ve read where there are issues are with fish/snails/nems being sucked through the back of the pump. There are some out there creating guards on their 3D printer to alleviate these issues. If I ever get to lagoon territory I will be grabbing one of these pumps.
