    Ashton's Waterbox 15

    I would be careful getting it from a store. I guarantee it will find a way in your tank. I would just stick to the method you are using. These little ecosystems we run are amazing at coming up with all the right stuff with just a little time Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mag drive water pump took a dump

    Ok I have something I think may work until I get back set a small pump in the sump to move water around a little. Disconnected a reactor and pump a maxijet1200 as my return pump right now. Very little flow but it is something at least until I get back just have to reset my top off water line and should keep everything going until I get back Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My Mag drive water pump not sure what model it was a mag12 I believe started making. A weird noise I unplugged it and now won’t come back on. I took it apart and one of the magnets on the impeller broke in half. I don’t have a back up. Does anyone have one lying around I could use if my quick fix doesn’t work. I am attempting to super glue the magnet back together. Also I am suppose to be going out of town in the morning (of course this happens now) so quick reply’s would help if not may come home to a stinky sump Only be gone two days so the display should be ok.

    I am no expert I will start by saying that but all the reefers I have known over the years the ones who chased a specific number always seemed to have problems. As long as you are in a acceptable range I would say you are good. If you don’t have a lot of coral in your system I see no need to complicate thing and dose anything as long as you are doing water changes. Monthly or bi monthly changes should maintain most systems. These little slices of oceans we keep in our houses are miniature ecosystems they a lot of time are trying to fix what you are adding to the tank which off sets numbers. Then you change and it changes and never becomes stable. By no means am I saying don’t dose I am just saying if there is no need except to try and get a different number, WHY? I base almost everything off the way a coral or corals look. Like your toad stools not looking hot do a water change and wait and see for two weeks still no change do a water change again and wait and see. Bet it starts to perk up. Water changes are your best friend unless you are Ty (he is a freak of nature) and another thing is out of 100 members I bet none of them see eye to eye on everything. Find someone who has a tank like yours and you can see what they do actually works and then reach out to them for advice. If you try and do what everyone says on here they will conflict and it will cause you problems Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
