    Hate gyres.

    Gyres working great on my tanks. 250s on each end, up near water surface. Pulse mode, 0.9 s., B running opposite of A. Tank is five feet long and this setting creates a nice wave action. On a three foot frag tank, I have one Icecap 3000 set on pulse, 0.7 s, 30%, at 100% the wave will almost splash out. You just have to get the pulse at the right freq for the dimensions of each tank. ... and you have learn how to unassemble, clean, and reassemble. Seems as though engineering flaws in the early model are being addressed in more recent versions (e.g. weak cord, weak adapters between magnet spindle and gyre). much beefier now.

    I'm in Buda. If you want to trade for some corals, come pick some out.

    A spike in alkalinity? What caused it?

    Cleaning filter socks

    That's what I do with my felt socks when I run them. I've been using the nylon socks more and more. Easier to clean for sure but they don't trap the smaller particles. I can't see a difference.

    LED Choices

    I've been surprisingly pleased with black box LEDs (3x for a 60" SPS tank) -- four years and counting. If I had money to burn, I'd get two of the latest ecotech radions for a 36 inch tank, just based on seeing them on other's SPS tanks.
  11. Not to counter Timfish's experience and knowledge, I'd personally be more comfortable starting off with DI water from a fish store to start up your 15 gallon reef and build some experience in reefing before either purchasing an expensive RO/DI system or booting up with dechlorinated ATX water. FWIW, I'm slowly adopting some of Timfish's advice like pulling my skimmer and not running a fuge. Not there yet on the water...

    Water pik to clean coral

    I'd still QT/dip because of the chance of eggs not getting blasted off. I'd have to seriously question bringing that chunk of monti (loaded with nudis) into my "studio".
