    KimP's in-wall room divider build

    Ha! Believe me, I have tried. I think it's about as good as it can get considering it pulls out from both sides. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Plugged in the Apex display and it appears to be working. That's great news so far. I also sort of reluctantly put the heaters in. I took the temp of the water 5 different ways and got 4 different readings from 76-80. Not pleased about that. Next step is to test my thermometers and see if any are accurate before I set the heaters.
  5. I was wondering if we still did the scholarship, that's awesome. This is great timing for my tank. I'm excited! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Got some goodies in yesterday. Parameters look good but I need to continue to bring my po4 down. Baby steps. Today I attempted to do something about my light box. It's a mess up there and easy to forget about. I pulled everything out, took all the lights apart and cleaned them. 😬 Tried to reorganize cords. My Apex head unit has been sitting around waiting for me to connect it again. That's as far as I got, just plugging it in. Hoping tonight I'll get a chance to see if it's working or not. If/when I get it working, then there'll be a bunch more cords up in that light box again because they'll need to be re-connected to each other. Such a mess. Now that all the lights are clean I need to carve out some time to see what kind of par I'm getting.

    It's like a light pink? Just the regular color. I had the blues turned down but it always looks either that dark in pictures, or totally washed out. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Check out this bubble coral. It's always looked healthy and happy, but it's been especially happy lately! I've had it many years and it started in my tank as a 3rd generation polyp from a colony bought in the early '90s.

    Dendro and Sun coral

    Success with dendros but never with sun coral. Never heard of anyone having success long term without considerable work, including pulling the coral out almost daily into a feeding bowl or constructing some sort of dome to go over it and inject food into. It's so hard long term to get it to consistently open up to eat. Dendros are easy though, but will need to be fed. I have an auto feeder sitting above mine in such a way that with the flow, it sends food right at the polyps. It's still not enough though, I know they appreciate when I broadcast feed frozen, and especially small stuff like cyclopeeze. Dendros seem to always run about $25/head.

    BBMarlin's 76G - Skimmerless SPS Reef

    That looks amazing, wow! I love the progress pics. I found the same to be true in my tank. Both with the Mg and skimmer. Pulled the skimmer cup out and never replaced it and sponges appeared all over, in the DT and sump. Glad to hear of another successful tank running without a skimmer!
