  1. Vortech MP40w SOLD

    Selling a pair of MP40w for $150. Will still be running in my tank so you can check it out first hand. Reply here first then PM.

    Door lights wired up to turn on when the doors are opened.

    Stand is now painted, stained, and poly coated. Still need to install door lights and handles which I may tackle tonight. Scheduling a day with my brother to give me a hand with a custom concrete counter top for it. Tank location was vetoed due to the wife not liking the glare in it's current location so the tv went back on the wall. Tank will now live in the current tank's location which is where I wanted it originally anyway but it would of been so much easier to have 2 tanks running at the same time. Now I have to figure out how to move the current tank out of the way without fully draining it. I think I still want to buy another 55 gallon tank and make another sump so I don't have to worry about timing. I'll also need to work on the canopy next. I'm thinking of continuing the slat wood mix stain look. I just need to figure out a way to make the canopy hinged and open top. Any ideas?

    Great job saving the tank Tim.

    My tank is currently in cruise control and will be transitioned to my upgrade soon so I thought I'd snap a quick pic before I forget with my other build in progress.

    More like kindergartners since I've been napping and throwing tantrums. It's coming along finally after buying better wood for the doors that don't warp. I may have all the doors ready tomorrow.

    Build is slowly chugging along. Working on the stand side doors at the moment. Space for the tank has been made after selling our super big couch set and moving our tv off the wall. I'll need to patch and paint the wall then hopefully by next week I can move the stand inside. Living room is currently a mess but we just got the new couch and dual recliners. I have a side project of making a tv stand for the tv then I can move the tank in.

    Good luck. It'll be nice to have it stocked again.

    Wow no faith. I even built a guard which I had my hand on. It was so much sawdust though! I'm hoping to have the stand in the house by the end of the week but it'll still be missing the concrete counter top which I'll be building for it. Next I have to router the hinges, finish up the stain on the side doors, install the automatic led lighting, and drill for the cabinet handles.

    Man that sucks. When I got my last order of 5 I ended up with just 1 as well but he's still kicking at least a year later. I was looking into other anthias to try but liveaquaria recommends just 1 anthia per tank
  14. Raising Alkalinity

    The safest way to raise your alk is to do water changes. Don't try to chase the alk and risk stressing everygthing out.

    So walk into a room with 99 sick people or walk into a room with just 1 blood thirsty zombie either way the 99 were infected as well and the virus is airborne. You need to now QT yourself.
