  1. 80 gallon shallow

    Definitely has been a minute since I’ve updated this. Tank is humming along. Lost some sps randomly, parameters seemed in check, no sudden swings of any kind but I guess stuff happens. Finally got around to installing two brs dosers so I don’t have to manually dose every night. Also just got a pack from R2R in today. 2 out of the 6 arrived with some rtn spots so we will see how they do. The stag and wwc yellow tips are the ones that arrived in rough shape. Top left and bottom left. Other pieces are Hawkins, rr Wolverine, Yellow Tort, Aqua sd rainbow Milli.
  2. Need salt

    That's fine I just need some to mix into this. Aquaforest has a short lifespan once mixed so I need to get it in the tank. I sent you a pm.
  3. Need salt

    Preferably near Noblesville.
  4. Need salt

    Anyone have any salt I can borrow? I started my water change day and ran out of salt 😔. Prefer aquaforest but really I would take any salt. Just a few cups worth would probably do the trick. Let me know! 7657024226
  5. What Lights are you using?

    Still in the feeling out stage I think. I wasn't sure what the par was with LEDs so I just started the T5 fixture higher and have been slowly moving it down so I'm not sure what the sweet spot is. I'm probably about 10-12" above waterline right now. The only thing I miss about LEDs is the pop. I think the corals are probably a truer color now but since my fixture has 4 bulbs on each plug I can't run only LEDs on it at any time.
  6. What Lights are you using?

    Recently switched from Hydras to an 8 bulb Tek Elite with 3 Blue plus, 3 coral plus and two Biotek B5 blue led tubes. So far so good. Haven't measured par or anything.
  7. KH levels

    Be aware of what your salt mix of choice is. That will bring your levels up or down every time you do a water change. I like to try to keep mine around what my salt mixes at to minimize that frustration.
  8. Placing frags in aquarium

    The stems snap off pretty easily and I just glue the discs down. Or snap the frag off if it hasn't encrusted yet and ditch the plug completely.
  9. 80 gallon shallow

    Ok corals came in from BC and it was also water change day so I tried taking some iPhone pics and adjusting with the SnapSeed app to attempt to edit out the blue. It may be time to invest in one of those top down acrylic boxes as my camera skills are pretty weak. Hard to tell but Secale is bottom left, June Ruby is Northeast of it, Shades of Fall is to the right of that, and Goldilocks is above those two. And some other random shots of coral in my tank that were not totally washed out by the lights.
  10. ALK Monitor

    Haha hard pass
  11. 80 gallon shallow

    Just acclimating. I started it higher actually and have been moving it down a bit every few days.
  12. ALK Monitor

    Why don't you just pay someone to test your Alk for you I'm sure it would be cheaper? In all seriousness though that is an awesome idea but until it gets down to the $100-$200 price range I'm out haha.
  13. 80 gallon shallow

    Recent FTS with T5 switch. And the pack coming from Battlecorals.
  14. 80 gallon shallow

    So I switched the lighting up a bit to an 8 bulb tek with 2 of the biotek B5 led tubes and then 3 blue plus and 3 coral plus bulbs. So far so good and I'm digging the much more even spread I wasn't getting out of my LEDs. Also grabbed up a 4 pack from Adam at Battlecorals and that should be ready to ship next week.
