  3. ARC Sea Hare Loaner program

    I am in desperate need of a hare. Let me know if he is available and I can pick him up. other wise I will be purchasing one very soon.
  4. Hungry Hungry Hare

    I found a snail in the orifice of my protein skimmer. My tank is overgrown with hair algae. I am going to manually remove as much as I can but would like to drop in a Hare to help with what I can't reach. I can do cash or trade a frag if your interested. Thanks

    Bump
  6. Sump Advise

    Here is a sump I built for my original 10 gallon reef. I used a 5.5 gallon tank for my sump and then glued in plexiglass for the dividers. Was not expensive and pretty simple to do. It kept my 10g display looking sharp . . .

  8. Beer:30 meeting

    Whats the location?
  9. Thanks for the tip, I re-watched them but updated the settings on my youtube player. 4k was still better.
  10. Oh no, what happened?

    +1 water change and carbon.
  11. I felt like the 4k had better focus and clarity. Also the full tank shot at the end looked much sharper. They were both good videos but I vote 4k

    I think you will get a lot of opinions on the right time to add coral or fish. Has your tank cycled yet (had an algae bloom)? As long as your water parameters are ok and not having big swings I think you will be fine. The corals I have are hearty and are good to start with. If you they die, they didn't cost you anything. As for the Clowns you should go ahead and get them. They will help with the processing of the tank. Issues are always manageable with time and effort. When I started this hobby I was in a 10g tank, everything I kept strived, water changes were easy because it was such a small volume. I think you should look forward to adding livestock and not worry about it. Start with inexpensive items so you don't get burned out because of the expense. My only suggestion is to not add a lot to the tank at once, try to collect a piece at a time until you get a hang of it. Coral will not have much of an impact on water quality but adding several fish at once can. They all eat and they all poop. I would also suggest some kind of shrimp to help with cleaning the tank and consuming dietrius and un-eaten food. Looking at the image you provided I do not see a protein skimmer or a water top off. Those two items can be a game changer. Evaporation can be your biggest enemy. Im pretty sure you can find a small skimmer for your tank for not a lot of $ You can't see in the picture I posted last but I got a skimmer and ATO! Now I need a dimmer...and fish. My parameters have been awesome but no algea bloom. And I think it would be a real luxury to have an auto dosing setup like the one at C4 too. Not sure of you made it to thatSent from Sissy's phone she's fed up with Looks good. You would definitely like having the dosing set up. I unfortunately couldn't make it to C4 this year. Sounds like it was a great time.

    I would be happy to donate a couple small frags to the tank when your ready. I think its great you're pulling this together for your kid to support his interest and future. The only catch is I am in S. Austin, Oak Hill area. If it works out I will be traveling north the weekend of the 9/17 and could try to meet up with y'all to drop off the frags.
