  1. I will check this valve guide! I made progress and set the tank on the stand finally. I immediately ran into my first issue, The Light bracket, would not allow me to use the factory cover, because it was to big. So I had to cut out a small portion using a multi-tool, then clean the edges up with a razor blade. Perfect fit.
  2. So the tank has arrived, after weighing the costs, I think LPS will be the way to go. This will allow me to use my existing light, and use a single power-head instead of multiple.
  3. Well, got my first piece of equipment for the new tank, not super exciting, but a good American DJ individually switched power strip makes life a lot easier.
  4. Please do, didn’t know that existed.
  5. So first post, my goal with this tank is to build an SPS or LPS tank. I want to really automate this tank by the end, so when I do things like go on vacation, I don’t have to worry about people helping me, other then checking in on it. What equipment am I thinking about? Skimmer: Simplicity 240 DC Return Pump: Simplicity 1600DC Filtration: Nyos Torque 1.0 or 2.0 Media: No clue up for recommendations Pump: AI nero Lighting: AI Prime w/ diffuser (Depending on coral decisions, I will add a second if needed.) I have a whole list of things for other equipment, but I want to make sure the basics are done first.
  6. Well, I sold my old tank, and got bit with the bug rather quickly. So I ordered a Red Sea reefer 170 this week. I will use this thread to keep track of my progress, as I work on the new tank.
  7. So I have a spectrapure 90, RODI unit, that came with a float valve. When I use it, the waste water keeps rolling out. I know I need an automatic shut off installed, but it appears I have one. Am I missing something? https://photos.app.goo.gl/PGvFyZftYRk1QtMS6
  8. I have had a tank in my life for almost 10 years straight now, and I am starting to feel a little burnt out on it. The funny thing is, my tank has never been better, It's full of healthy fish and corals, and is amazingly beautiful, but somehow it just feels like work. Has anyone experienced this, and did you take a break from the hobby, or find another way to rekindle the excitement?
  9. I’ve got this weird snot flesh colored algae that is growing like crazy in the rear of my all in one. When picked up it hangs like a big mucus string, and it’s growing in the pitch black part of my sump .Any clues?
  10. Sure he’s free to whoever comes to get him, so just keep and eye on thread.
  11. About 2” https://photos.app.goo.gl/F7buB7d7Qvuk9DnWA https://photos.app.goo.gl/X3a2vuXmhJwFqV7X8
  12. Well, my favorite fish has to go, it looks like he has outgrown the tank. He will get up to speed and splash around, accept tonight he launched himself four feet onto the ground. He is free to a good home, with a cover, and plenty of room to swim. I'm on the south side in Greenwood.
  13. Well I’m getting this bright green algae, can’t seem to ID it. https://photos.app.goo.gl/HhEBi2v9JXiKzSnh8
