  1. So I just got my frag tank up and going. How do you secure frags to the rack so they don’t get blown around? Rubber bands on the bottom? I’m looking for ideas for traditional frag plugs. Thanks, -Mike
  2. Hello, Have you ever bought a frag not really knowing what it is? Yep, me too. Could you please help identify the corals in the following pics? Two are of the same coral, just different angles. Thanks! -Mike
  3. Well, I just got back from vacation and I had the neighbor kid watch the tank for me. I'm going to blame this on myself. I'm guessing when he changed the socks he bent down and put all his weight on the euro brace and snapped off a 10" section. Does anyone know of someone that does acrylic work in Indianapolis? I think all that needs done is to remove the one section, buff and install a new piece. It's probably $30 in parts, but I don't want to learn to do this type of work on my pride and joy. Please let me know. Thanks! -Mike
  4. Hey all, I've been at this a while now and was wondering the best purchases/ reef tips you have. I'm just curious what I've been living without (and what I need or need to know). Following is my list: 1. Water changing station, because you never know when you might need an extra 100 gallons of salt water. (Or RO/ DI water) 2. Diamond goby. My sand has never looked nicer! 3. DIY filter socks. I think 100 in reserve is about right. 4. Super glue. Great for glueing frags to rocks 5. Utility sink in the basement. Okay, this could be number 1. I installed it after I got the tank. 6. Disposable rubber gloves. 7. Kalk paste will kill about anything you don't want in the tank. What are your favorite, can't live without items/ tips? -Mike
  5. All the threads are in metric. Cool concept though.
  6. I think I'm north of 120 socks. $30 and I called it a kid "sewing project."
  7. Yep! I put the daughter to work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Ok, that was rhetorical:) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hello, I have a question for ya. After a lot of reading on the subject of dosing, what do you dose? Do you just throw it in your tank or do you use a doser? If you do use a doser, what type? I'm thinking about the Pacific Sun Kore 5th doser. Does anyone have any experience with it? It looks great on paper, but you know how that works. It makes me nervous that this is not sold by Premium or BRS. I'd like to use it to do automatic water changes as well as calcium, alkalinity and magnesium. Let me know. Thanks! -Mike
  10. I still can't post picks. Oh well.
  11. Ok I have a weird one. I've been to a lot of areas that use large rocks that look like they are basically dry rock as boarders for lawns. I've been wanting a really huge rock (boulder) to put in the middle of my 185. My questions is, do you think I can just go to a lawn scape place in Florida and get a big rock and throw it in the tank? Of course I would take all of the normal precautions, but I think I could to this for like 1/5 the price of getting dry rock in Indiana. Thoughts?
  12. They sent me one out two day post. It worked out just fine.
  13. The bracket only fixes the vibration issue, but it does great job. Before I could hear the thing ramp up from my upstairs living room. Now I can be standing next to the tank and I can't hear it.
