  1. I have mine in the laundry room too, I agree it's the logical place. Good luck!
  2. Tunze says up to 75gal
  3. Wondering what will happen to your tank in a power outage? This is one option! I bought this a couple years ago and never ended up using it. I no longer have the box but it's been well stored. I plugged it in just now and it turns right on. In new condition. Here's a link to all the specs: http://www.apc.com/shop/us/en/products/Power-Saving-Back-UPS-XS-1500/P-BX1500G They sell new around $199 + tax Asking $150 obo Pickup in far south Austin
  4. I have a tunze nano. What size tank is it for?
  5. Welcome to the club!
  6. That looks amazing, nice work. I really love the aquascaping!
  7. Bummer. I hope everything's okay!
  8. I'm so sorry to read about your wreck and I'm glad you seem to be making a smooth recovery. That's amazing! Looks like your corals hung in there pretty well. The most recent pics are looking good! Just stick with the manual removal and water changes as you're able, and that'll go a long way no matter what else you do.
  9. I sure do! If you still need some.
  10. Wow, that looks great!
  11. Cheato is a macro algae some people grow in their sumps because it uses nitrates and phosphates to grow and provides a nice home for beneficial things like micro brittle stars and pods. Then when you harvest the cheato you remove it and the nitrates and phosphates in it.
  12. Wow, that's impressive! And a bummer.
  13. That's great news!
  14. A good thing to do if there's any chance you might have chlorine in your water is to keep some Prime or other dechlorinator handy. Just put a bit in any questionable water before adding and you're good. It's an easy way to be sure. Sorry you lost some coral, that's always such a bummer.
