  1. I haven't done any DIY projects for years. Came across this product when I found that my cousin works for them in Columbia City. I would agree $400 for a 6' stand isn't bad. Would this be cheaper than welded for someone doing an inwall?
  2. I really like the look of the stand, but think he ruined it with the doors - the hinges look chintzy. Also can't figure out how the doors costs $400 - he must have used acrylic, which would be most expensive option. I would have just left it open if the intent was to show off the equipment. Agree that look doesn't work everywhere. I thought a black and silver combo with sliding doors would look really slick. You could also use colored doors if that worked in the environment. Here's another 80/20 build on R2R - kinda cool, very high tech. http://www.reef2reef.com/threads/120g-80-20-stand-build.226353/ Last, but most importantly - none of these come even close to your stand PatO.
  3. Good point about the salt creep. I thought this looked a lot heavier than the the material in the frag swap stand. Regardless, check out the Photo Gallery and Xtreme DIY under the "Get Inspired" tab. There's some pretty cool stuff there.
  4. Just heard about this product and wondered what you think about applications in this hobby. Definitely not for anyone that requires furniture grade, but would make a really cool industrial looking set up. Thoughts from you DIYers? https://8020.net/
  5. I love that stand! I'm so bummed I can't make it.
  6. Looks like a nice tripod. I was going to get the Nikkor 105 macro lens, but I'm experimenting with some other options first. I took that shot using Macro Autofocus Extension Tubes. I think those will work for me, but I need to start shooting in RAW and doing some post processing.
  7. Got him at Premium a couple of years ago. He was not nearly that colorful then. If you look around, you'll find a lot of variation in color and pics of some that are super yellow. Those generally go for a pretty high price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I bought a Nikon D5500. I've been looking at the Nikon DSLRs for quite awhile. I'm glad I waited because this one has some really cool new features. Trying to figure out macro photography on it. Shot this last night. It's a start. Again, no processing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Weaned from live in just a couple of weeks using a stealth stick. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. And one of my favorite fish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Haven't put up a FTS lately. Thought I should since I have a new camera. Camera on auto, no post processing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The best thing to do is to have a container such as a stock tank at the new place, full of fresh heated saltwater so you can acclimate right away. If you use a stock tank or tub to hold stuff, that will give you a chance to get everything plumbed and set up without needing to worry about your livestock. Except for the most delicate livestock, most things should be fine in buckets for that long as long as you slowly bring the temp back up. I would definitely ditch the sand. If it's full of nutrients, you'll likely have a massive algae bloom on your hands. Oh, and move your tanks on a different weekend than the weekend you move everything else.

  14. Tech M for the bryopsis. Slowly raise your magnesium level with Tech M per the instructions on the bottle. Somewhere close to 1500 ppm the bryopsis will die off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. If you want fish that will hang out in the water column, cardinalfish are your bet bet in a tank of that size - Kaudern's, pajama and yellow-striped. All of those are captive-bred if that matters to you. I really like the yellowstrip. You don't see them as musch as the other two, but they look good in a tank. A royal gramma is great fish for that size of tank. They like to hang out in a cave, but will come out when you approach the tank. Lot of different blennies & gobies that would work. I would stay away from the dottybacks. They are tempting because they are so colorful, but they tend to hide alot and some get downright mean. A coral banded or cleaner shrimp are alsp nive additions.
  16. This is something I have been interested in doing. My concern is that people won't be willing to present if they're going to be recorded.
  17. I'd be happy to explain it as soon as you tell me how your dosed works. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I agree, it's hard to keep your alk that high. I have dosed 2-part, both ESV and BRS, dripped talk, and ran calcium reactors. I think of all of those methods my tanks have done the best with calcium reactors. In addition to the stability, you get trace that you can't get from talk or 2-part.
  19. Did you have to drill holes in the MH fixture? Where did you get the brackets? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
