  1. Floor jacks/struts are in! Glued plumbing in and out in the rest of manifold parts. So I started with filling, sand and base rock! I have about 250#s of sand and about 250-300# of rock(once I get my coral rock in!)
  2. If you look closely there are two Ts on the return, one for a UV and one for a BRS dual reactor to run purigen and gfo, but I didn’t put the ball valves on it yet and yes the drains do go down into the sump to reduce noise.
  3. Dry plumbing done yesterday on the trigger emerald sump! Everything worked pretty well, except i was hoping to make space for three lines on the return for the manifold, only had space for two. Lmk what u think, before i glue it all in
  4. 😅😅😅😅Nice one ☝️. I am hoping with all the very mature rock and clean live sand we are putting in the new one it is pretty seemless. I have done this before with new rock(which is currently in a rubbermaid culturing) and old rock, it will be about half and half! If we get some algae blooms or what not I’m sure we’ll manage them! Although we may end up stuck here till the end of the yr anyways soo....it’s all up in the air for now
  5. 75g quite a while before teardown, it has alot more corals and fish than in this pic, don’t ask me how pic is upside down?? I can fix it!? 2nd pic is QT setup!
  6. So I got my brother Aaron into the hobby about a yr ago, his son grew up looking at my tanks I’ve had for the last twelve yrs and has always asked for one, so I got them started with a 75g non drilled we bought out someones full setup(always the cheapest way to get started). I was away living in Barbados this time last yr and the best I could do to help start him out was to find the right setup for him and video chat Many times to get him going. This last Christmas my family stayed with his for about two wks and we upgraded the canisters and cheap lights the setup came with, with Kessils and a nice big bashsea sump with an overflow box! This was a much nicer setup for him, but they quickly were getting fish that was going to outgrow the tank and corals were crowding the tank. They were ready fora REAL upgrade, so I started putting my feelers out for something that fit their space!! Luckily for me and him we are living with his family temporarily, which is A HUGE pulling factor for him to do this upgrade bc a full tank swap is a bit over his head, as well as new plumbing and what equipment is best! So here we go! We got our hands on a 250g deep dimension 5’x3’x27” tank, stand, emerald trigger sump, 2 radion light rails, 5’ t5 4bulb kit, and a vertex omega 200 skimmer!!! I had a 60g tank I was planning on setting up when we moved so I set that up on the other side of the room, (this makes the swap so much easier so we didn’t have to try and do it all in one day), as well as a 29g quarantine tank to medicate all the new and old fish so we have a nice clean 250g! This part is all done!
  7. I love wheats and lagers, but not opposed to darker which i know most yours are
  8. Great! I hope to come for sure!! I can bring white ck chili
  9. Hello - saw your response to another post about having coral for sale.  Would you have any purple stylo, purple digi, forest fire digi, or blastos and if so how much?

    Thank you,


  10. Yeah Ryan i had one back in 6-7 yrs ago in my 250 cube. Awesome fish, only things he picked at were zoas and trumpets. But even then not alot, but if thinking of getting one, i wouldn’t advise thing like those corals, palys probably ok, but acans, trachys, wellso etc I wouldn’t take a chance with and 120 is probably big enough. Mine was the size of a big copperband.
  11. Awesome!! I’m hoping to start raising clowns, as well as hopefully phyto, pods and maybe even seahorses this yr. !! Working on obtaining tanks and equipment to do so then will read up more and refresh my knowledge!
