    Vertex skimmer

    I started cycling my tank without a skimmer and had a small issue. Started a thread on here to try to figure it out. Basically the drains started acting like the skimmer and was producing what I call skim foam that was filling my first compartment of the sump. Here’s the link if you wanna check it out.

    Vertex skimmer

    Don’t believe it’s too large. It will be a good skimmer for a heavy stocked tank.

    You’re still in the cycle just be patient. Vertex skimmers have a good reputation. Let the tank do it’s thing. Adding food to the tank will usually cause skimmers to misbehave even in established systems.

    calcium alk and mag

    I use 2 part (BRS bulk the discontinued stuff) with 15% water changes every 2 weeks using IO salt. The regular stuff not the crystals. I think the water changes help control the mag so I don’t dose magnesium. I haven’t even messed with mag for about a year. I test for about once every couple of month. You know when I think to myself I haven’t checked it in a while I’ll check.

    New Clown is Sick

    If it is lympho there is no treatment due to it being a viral condition. It should go away on its own. However his lose of appetite may be another side affect of the growth being in his mouth and gills. Removing the growth in that case may help. Manual removal if possible, maybe a cleaner shrimp or wrasse. Also you maybe look into this being a bacterial infection. Good luck hope he makes it.

    Zoa/Paly growout challenge

    I would love to participate! However I won’t be able to make the August meeting in time. Can we set up a meet up, or someone hold a frag for me?

    Water in the stand!

    Alright everyone I’ve been back to 100% operational for over a week now. Can’t say enough about Central Indy Aquatics! Kenna went above and beyond to help me get the supplies I needed. Truly a shop that cares about its customers and their little piece of the ocean. Now to get rid of that starfish!😠

    My skimmer will not stop overflowing!

    Be patient buddy sometime it just takes longer. On another note make sure your sump lever for the skimmer is correct. Make sure the gate valve is wide open. Leave that cup off another day, it won’t hurt.

    April 2018 INDMAS Meeting

    Can the coral saw be available for this meeting?

    Water in the stand!

    I think so! My only conclusion was my wandering chocolate chip starfish in my sump blocked the drain from the frag tank. Causing the frag tank to overflow.

    Water in the stand!

    Not sure, but I’m guessing they’re not interchangeable. My biggest concern with trying it would be the output voltage. The prime is 24V output you can see in the pic. If the others have a different output I’d end up cooking the fixture if it’s not already.
