    Well you found the right group! Welcome to the club.
  2. I like the fact that you're going to a larger system. Love to see it when you have it up and running!
  3. I've also looked at the most recent Gyres (300's) and they do appear to be far more sturdy and easier to maintain. I ended up getting a replacement 200 (on close out) only because they are not compatible with the 300 series. Running two gyres and tossing a good unit and all the spare components seemed wasteful. I just hope this unit lasts for several years.

    Now watch in 6 - 12 months I'll be getting rid of the PBT because its terrorizing to many other fish. πŸ™„

    Moved to Livestock page. Traded it to save it from the Powder Blue Tang...... also trading other frags to Mike Eacret so it worked for both of us If I can keep his zoo's alive. (Bam Bams are the only type that seem to do well in my tank)

  8. I know on my unit the waste water continues for 5-10 minutes before it reaches the back pressure required to shut the water flow off. It does work but maybe give it more time to shut off(hopefully that’s it).
  9. I usually run mine for ten hours from 8 until 6.
  10. Sounds like a lot of fun, unfortunately cannot make it due to a family wedding. πŸ™
  11. Thank you all for coming we had a blast! The best advice on keeping the tank quiet came from Luis, raising the drain tubes in the internal overflow box to reduce the splash. Worked like a charm, Thanks Luis!
  12. Awesome, looking forward to meeting you both!
  13. Thanks! Great timing LOL, you're a weekend too late... I just sanded down the deck to bare wood and re-stained it. (Built a temporary canopy to protect it from all the rain). Now I need to work on the tank and all the other projects lined up for me. Have a great trip, I'm jealous! Which island(s)?
  14. My lovely bride has informed me we are serving fried chicken from Hollyhock Hills and grilled shrimp. My address is: 921 Arrowwood Drive Carmel, IN 46033 (just off 146th Street about 2 miles east of 31 - Meridian/Keystone)
  15. Great meeting! Thank you and Marcia for hosting. All Candy can talk about now is fish, inverts, and bacteria! That new poster is really life-like. πŸ™„ That should be really fun to watch it grow out. Loved all the tangs in there, but that Blenny will have to go on a diet or it will explode! Always fun, Thanks Again!

    Hope you can make it to the next meeting. Look forward to meeting you then!
  17. I'll be there. Looking forward to seeing the new poster tank! (not sure if Candy can make it )
  18. I agree they look like chiton. Maybe a third further on the upper left? Always fun to get some of the good ones as hitchhikers!
  19. The only time I upgraded tanks was... a little over 16 years ago and I didn't have corals as I was just a fowlr. The move was from a 55 to my current 125. I did transfer all my sand but did "vacuum" it fairly well. I transferred the LR a portion one day at a time and then added some more. I only took one week to let the new tank settle but as I mentioned only a fowlr. I did not lose any fish and the cycle was minimal. I did not use Tim's at that time. In your case, (assuming your bed is not deep... 1-2 inches) I can see taking more time but aside from cleaning the sand without destroying the bacteria. I would definitely would use Tim's and like you are doing plan, and be patient. Good Luck, I hope it all goes well!
  20. The acquisition was not a good fit for either company {Big Box as compared to niche company}. It's a shame for those employees and their families. I hope they come out alright.
