  1. Just tell them to be careful around the aqurium(s). If you are super worried, build a 2X4 frame around the aqarium and cover with plastic sheeting. We did this when we had a major investation we had treated. Tank and inverts were fine and the stuff the exterminator used was definitely fish/invert toxic.

    Evaporation?

    I'd say normal. My tank evaporates more in the winter. Heat dries the air. Hasn't been as bad this winter with all the rain though.

    Surprise!

    Amazing how, and where, things can hide.
  4. Offshore trips in Nov and Dec. Yay!!!

  5. I would say no. I've done some extensive home remodeling near my tanks....
  6. Price reduction to $60.
  7. Weekly price reduction, and I'm open to trades and offers. I still need a good powerhead. and I could use some .22LR or .45 Long Colt ammo.......
  8. Yep, they go bad. I had the GFCI outlet running my return pumps go out when I was on vacation in Alaska Fortunately, I had good house-sitter and my tank was alive when I got home. (Extension cables to the rescue!)
  9. Price reduction. The ballasts are worth this price.... I really want to clear out the garage! I'm open to offers! Don't be shy. I can meet up in Austin on weekdays during lunch.
  10. Price reduction to $70. Will consider partial trade in the form of a good powerhead for mixing a Brute trash can full saltwater. I recently dropped my old mixing powerhead and broke it.... I have another post for metal halide lighting up. When one sells I'm taking the other down. I want to have halides for sprouting my veggies over the winter. They are great for sprouting and provide warmth in the garage. But I have no need for two fixtures any longer.
  11. One of the Aquatraders models. It has 3X 250 MH, 4 T5, and multiple moonlight LED. Has 3 external halide ballasts and plusrite bulbs. Bulbs need replacing. No hanging kit but has the 4 mounting legs so it can sit on top of your tank. Halides and LED work perfect. T5 is not working great. Maybe the bulbs,maybe the ballast on the T5. (I think it is the bulbs.... But I don't feel like troubleshooting it.) Halides work perfect though. Unit is right at a year old. I switched to LED over this tank. These would be good over an aquarium or for an indoor hydro set up. Very bright. List price is $389.00 I want $100 for mine. Will consider partial credit in the form of a good powerhead for mixing a Brute trash can full saltwater. I recently dropped my old mixing powerhead and broke it.... I have another post for metal halide lighting up. When one sells I'm taking the other down. I want to have halides for sprouting my veggies over the winter. They are great for sprouting and provide warmth in the garage. I'm listing this one as the other DIY gear I have listed is not selling. Here is a link to the new fixture, mine is just like that. http://www.aquatraders.com/72in-Metal-Halide-HQI-T5-Aquarium-Light-p/54269.htm
  12. I agree with a lot of the above. Wait, time helps. Flow on the bad spots helps. Make sure you are not feeding too much. A 3 day, lights out, will help. Should have no negative impact, aside from your own viewing and enjoyment. Consider it an investment in your viewing pleasure. IMO: lots of little things add up, no quick-fix.

    GSP

    I have a spot where I need to trim some GSP. Lets call it in about the size of a mouse. Oblong. $10 for the chunk, and I can meet you in Austin around lunchtime somewhere central. Or you can come out here. It is very bright green and a fast grower. Grog
  14. Removed the remnant wiring from my halides. Removed the plumbing from my chiller. Rerouted all wires on my PD board. Made a temp mount for my LED fixtures. Cleaned the tank and sump and did a water change. Replaced carbon in my filter socks. Basically, I spent Sunday mucking around in the tank and sloshing water around the house. Sounds like I'm really active, but honestly I've been a tank-slacker. My tanks are on auto-pilot lately. I just feed and top them off. Cleaning is a 30-45 day interval chore for me. Nice to just enjoy.
