Re: Problem Solved

Just because Gerwin didn't say it.. You goal temp is under 80. Over 80 and I start adding fans or looking for gear that's causing too much heat.

Re: Home made frag plugs

I know a guy who built his whole rock structure and then drilled out holes for frag plugs in it just to hide the ugly things! I typically broke my frags off the plugs and epoxied the base into the rock anyhow. Then drop the encrusted plug on a rack and let it grow back up for sale.

Re: Problem Solved

Glad you found a fix! Did you not have a temp on the tank from the apex? Telling you that it was high? Where is the display mounted?

Re: Drilling Tank

I am very very slowly moving through my build. I got the drilling done and will be building my Bean Animal overflow either at the end of this month or the beginning of next month. Mine is a true "coast to coast" in that it spans the entire width of the tank in order to pull the thinnest sheet of wat...

I don't even have a tank right now and my brute trash can with live rock, a damsel and a maroon clown is winning this battle!

Re: SO I'm starting a list RULES to know about your Hobby!

Rule 1: PATIENCE . Take your time, make any changes slowly and keep everything stable... SPS = stability promotes success. It's not a race, it's a marathon. Always err on the side of observing too long instead of reacting too fast. Make additions, add any new products, change any lighting very very ...

Re: Gerwin -this is bean-animal overflow

I saw this system on a 300g tank build on Reef Central, I like it. Seems like it will keep all the waste out of your tank really easy and get it down to the skimmer and out of your system. If I had known more about it, I would have gotten it on my tank. That's the coast to coast part of the concept...

Re: Amazing corals that came from Gerwin

I plan to have a large frag sale before moving of my tank... I'm considering fragging out my entire tank in the coming months, so just watch the site.

Re: Hows everyone doing?

Wow, sorry for your loss Scott. Did you lose power and that's what caused it? You had one coral in there that I reallllllyyyyy liked, it might still be in there, can't really tell by the pic. Its the round one, top shelf. The one that I liked really wasn't lipped around the edge, but its been awhil...
