  1. this will morph into a 60 or 80 I am sure in a year. If i need to rehome. I will for sure. I am fish heavy but stats are fine for water chem. like you said happiness and space for them./. we will see how things pan out. I love the tank though. its coming along well. Added some sticks... lets see how they grow,

  3. I have the JBJ nano. it worked very well on my pico. it was like 100 new. i will sell to you for 60... let me know. I used it for like 2 months... maybe 3.... Dawn
  4. I did 50% WC. last night. then doing another 50%. good news is. the tank is spotless the SPS are all with very nice PE. and the paramters are spot on... chaeto is MAD though... we will see if it can pull through. if not. ill get more. the Bubble is out of the fuge it seems. Ill check better tmr too. I pulled the rock and scrubbed and H2O2 it...
  5. yes. great on bubble algae... etc... BUT DUMB ME>... yes... WAVES HAND>. I am DUMB.... it is killing the chaeto. Why I did not connect the fact that chaeto is an algae toooo
  6. moved powerhead locations. trying the end of the tank. ( i dont like the look but I like the flow... ) Heres. FTS. 10/20/20
  7. Im smaller. (40g total water volume so I worry my tank will go cold/HOT quicker. ( thinking winter or summer with no climate control in the house..) will look into a generator. I was thinking of a make shift vortech backup for atleast the mp10 until I got home and could run the generator.//. thoughts on how much generator? Im thinking smaller heater. TV and fish tank. fridge
  8. what are you guys using. ( please be specific in your set-up plan for a power outage. for example.~~~ apex to remain powered so it can control the pumps? and how does it know it goes to battery. ( is that possible)? if not. what do you do? I was thinking to have the return pump and one powerhead since sump has half my water volume. do you run heaters? what do you run specifically and how? thank you Dawn
  9. pay no attention to the back wall. we ahd hoped the pain would match and it didnt. so repainting a wall is next ... and getting that fuge to keep kicking butt and get tank sparkling
  10. added the doors tonight. WOW. what a lot of work. we hand made the doors. the stand and the cabinet. custom!!!! I am thrilled
  11. back up to 31 today. 0.1. so I did receive the rowaphos I ordered today so that is in the high flow area of sump in a bagie for now and fuge is online for 12 hours tonight. shawn had his chaeto lit 12 hours too so it should be good. i hope it gets the levels down.
  12. shawn gave me chaeto. and I have it in the tank along with the new fuge light. ( H160). and then I am good on my level. I did the third 50% water change. so my metals should be way down too. and I sent off another ICP test to start the dos i hope. likley. this week. but by the weekend for certain.
  13. i am now.. and I was actually able to tell alexa to log todays results. and they are 13. thank good ness. 0.04 now.... I had no idea the test kits wasnt testing what I thought it was and feel so dumb I have only had the apex online for a few days. working on getting the trident and then the Dos online.
  14. 0I was under the impression 46 ppb on the hanna checker was good. that was 0.046 ppm. BUT THAT is phosphorus not phosphates. OMG. I am at like 0.14. no wonder I have some unhappy LPS today.... SO i added 1/2 cup of GFO, and tmr I get the chaeto from shawn. MAN I feel dumb again!!!! Dawn
  15. Well. she is JUST about done. a little more. and then to tidy the cables and set it all up in fusion
