    Help panic mode

    Lost power as well in Hamilton; PSE&G is reporting it will be back up Wednesday 11:30am; it keeps getting pushed back. Not good for my tanks.

    Original Kraken 120 gal Mixed Reef

    I like that stand, the lock & key is very cool. I'm curious about the heater in the tank howver since I assume there's a sump with that overflow.

    Best LFS for Fish

    I haven't been but looking at video's Reefco. seems to have a decent selection though mostly corals. They note on the tanks when the fish arrived & various information about them. I spoke with them at RAP & they were very friendly.

    Basement IM 100 EXT

    Bit of an update. Went to Rap NY, picked up a bunch of frags. Lost the the Cardinals, not 100% sure why but they just slowly died. The Anthias & Wrasse however are growing as are the clowns. I added a few weeks ago 13? Gobies from KP Aquatics. They're tiny but all alive and growing well. All the...

    Rap NYC

    Ah darn on the RBTA, I thought I saw one vendor with a tank full of very small ones for $45.00 a piece. I almost bought one on impulse and than remembered I really didn't want to deal with it moving. I looked at Pets Warehouse for awhile and saw a few wrasses I wanted but I didn't have time to...

    Rap NYC

    How was everyones RAP? Personally I enjoyed it very much & my kids did as well. Thanks to the members that helped to make it run very much appreciated. I definatly scored a few deals on 12 frags & 2 clowns. A few are still super pissed but hopefully they open up soon. One change to this year...

    Basement IM 100 EXT

    I dropped 1 bag of Tisbe & 1 of Tigre in the sump & 1 of Tisbe & 1 of Tigre in the display. The fish loved it. Feeding a bit of Phyto to the sump each day. I did have my first losses. 1 Lyretail Anthia didn't make it. I'm not surprised, I saw 2 swimming around a bunch and after the initial day I...

    Few quick picture updates as I caught the fish after eating. Loving the personalities & appearance of the new fish. I also bought 2 Tisbe, 2 Tigre & 2 Phyto from Pod Your Reef to help the tank. The Wrasse & 1 Lyretail immediately knew when they hit the tank.

    Cobalt aquatics

    I just want to give a nod to Cobalt. 1 of my 2 Neotherm heaters blew out a few weeks ago. I contacted them concerning a replacement and got prompt response. Now it's been roughly 4 weeks and they're still out of stock but they offered me a cheaper heater to hold me over for free till they're in...

    Good question iTzJU & not one I have an answer to. I got a Hannah Phosphate checker in the mail yesterday because I'm concerned all the manmade dry type rock might leach it. I plan to test that tonight as well. I have Rowaphos? I believe coming as well so if it's bad I can atleast do something...

    Basement IM 100 EXT

    Yeah it's a gamble but in my head I have a reason, sort of. 5 Cardinals, 3 lyretail Anthias & 1 Esquisite Fairy Wrasse. My nitrates have been high since setup despite weekly 25% water changes. My tank is dry rock & super sterile with the lights off so I have nothing growing in the tank except...

    Quick update on the tank. I've added my light fixture finally. Aquatic life T5 with 3 Kessil A360WE. From the picture you can see I'm having issues with the T5's. I tested the fixture back in August when I purchased it, worked fine. 2 bulbs I received were cracked however so I sent them back &...

    FS red dragon breath flame algae

    Got the 2 bags of algae, came quickly, super well packed, it's a great red glowing color. Very happy with it & I hope I can get it to grow in my refugium so I can eventually put it in a macro tank. Thanks again.

    Basement IM 100 EXT

    I get zero flow out of the second & 3rd drains, those are emergency drains only. The difference in height between the 2nd & 3rd is so very close that I don't want to try & run anything down the emergency. I believe some people run with a trickle down the 2nd to help it quiet the tank but not in...

    DIY suggestions

    While not exciting there are many uses for Egg Crate in this hobby, building baskets to contain media, stands for skimmers, frag racks, ect. A 4 x 2 piece of egg crate at home depot is roughly 12$ + zip ties & that would be enough for the class to build something. I created stands for use in my...

    My first tank

    Good start on the tank for sure & definatly a huge ouch on the finger. Any update on the sump setup? I bought my sump but if I had to do it again I'd likely just build one, it would have saved me a ton of money & it's really not that hard. It wouldn't look as nice but I could say I built that.
