  1. My 90 Gallon Build

    Looking good! I hope they make it. I love my Chromis!

    That is so awesome! I' a big DIY'er and this has really spike my interest! Now I just gotta find a way to make a mold.
  3. My 90 Gallon Build

    1st question on the baffles - it is useless to have baffles before the skimmer because the skimmer itself releases air bubbles. So remove those and give urself that extra space somewhere else, like the fuge. Baffles- I think 3 baffles has been the norm and is probly like a guaranteed way to eliminate bubbles but I think 2 can be just as good. My Trigger sump has only two baffles that are 2.5" apart and I don' really have a huge problem with air bubbles in my display. But if u do go with 3 I think the inch apart is good. Level of water in sump - I don' know if u plan on using check valves. If u do then u don' have to worry about back flush into ur sump. Ur water level will remain the same. But it is pricy to put a check valves on every line. I'm sure there is some sort of calculation out there on how much water empties out back into ur sump. I think ur best way to do it is to test it. Fill ur tank like a 1/3 of ur sump, measure the level of water while it' running. Shut it off and then measure again. Then u can find how much water came back. But if u don' want to through that I think 50% of the sump filled is a safe level. Return pump level - just be careful on ur sump being above like that. My concern would be if ur ATO fails and the water level goes down it could go well below ur pump and could ruin the pump. If u have it right on the bottom if ur sump it could give u a little more time to catch this mistake. Hope this helps a little. Anyone else have any input?

    I'm on the same boat. I am currently putting together my next build and I am in the market for powerheads and saw these. Not a whole lot of reviews or videos. The specs seem very good though.

  6. Captive-Bred Fish Prices

    Yeah I understand that there are economics behind their pricing and that they r trying to get back what they have invested into the time and research. But I still feel like they can be a little more reasonable. If we talk about how economy works the most important thing is to have consumer spending. If u don' have enough ppl buying ur goods then ur not making profit. Take for example the Prius. When It first hit the US market it came in with a price tag of about 40k. We all knew that they were good for the enviroment and we saved on gas. But bc of the price tag they were not selling as good as they wanted. Now u can get them for half that price and sales have definitely increased. I'm also not just talking about the conspicuous angels. I saw then same issue with all the other tank-bred fish that has come out.
  7. Just wondering if I am the only one who thinks the prices of Captive-Bred Fish are ridiculous compared to the ones that are plucked from the sea? I'm all for finding ways to Breed Fish and reducing the amount of Fish we pluck from the sea but as a buyer on a budget I am always going to go for the better deal. Unless it' a minimal difference. But when you have these Breeders more than doubling the prices on the fish it' hard to compete. I just saw a post from Poms Labs advertising a "Black Friday Sale" on their captice-bred conspicuous angel fish for $4,999 for one and a Bonded Pair for $9,700! I looked on Live Aquaria and these fish are running for $2,999-3,499ea. What are your thoughts?
  8. I don't know how many of us have heard about these Tangs but they are amazing! From a brief search prices range from $500 to $2000! Here's a link to an article about them. I actually didn't know about these fish until I seen them in the YouTube video from Reefbuilders where they visited Jason Fox (Which btw is also a must watch vid). https://reefbuilders.com/2015/11/05/hotspot-aberrant-scopas-tangs-discovered-south-west-java/
  9. Great News and Not so Great!

    Congrats to u and your wife! Sucks to see you pause the hobby but u can always restart and fix or avoid any issues u didn't like with your current set up.
  10. ReefHD Algae Buster Test

    Sorry I haven' been able to update this thread. My new work schedule has me really tide up. But here is my final pictures after the 14+ days of allowing the Algae Buster work and after the 20%+ water change. I would definitely recommend this product if you are trying to get rid of Bryopsis and possibly hair algae. How ever I didn' see the same effect in the calurpa and it definitey didn't do anything to the bubble algae.

    What parameters have you checked?
  12. ReefHD Algae Buster Test

    Yeah I see a little difference too. I will keep posting. Treatment should be complete after 14 days.
  13. ReefHD Algae Buster Test

    This is day 3. Accordingto the instructions I can raise my skimmer back up to ots normal level and should start to see some deterioration. Below you will find some day one compared to day three pics and I already see some differences. The Bryopsis seems to not be as extended less prominent.
