  1. They were my bbeb zoas. I came home from work and found them covered in asterinas. I dipped them and placed them in a quarantine tank. This is what they look like now. - Ben -
  2. Time to do the first cleaning? - Ben -
  3. I'm just going to jump right in here with an iPhone picture.
  4. To be honest, I'm not sure. I've been working in round rock this week and have not seen the tank with the lights on at all.
  5. I took this pic yesterday morning.
  6. I'm truly glad y'all had a good time. Hopefully we'll see y'all again in the spring! - Ben -
  7. Today is the day. I'm on location in case we have any sellers ready to set up their tanks.
  8. Updated pic of the screen. This was just taken.
  9. Ok. For the purpose of science.... Here I'll keep my progression shots. I'll document the scrubber surface and the problem spots in the DT. Keep in mind I'm not home often lately and have had problems keeping up with the maintenance. And the screen. - Ben -- Ben -
  10. Ok. I've succumb to this idea and decided to implement it. I had everything but the light and fixtures to do this project and I said "Why the heck not?" I did as simple a design as I could to minimize uncirculated water. I didn't take many pics as I was building it. It honestly only took me about 15 minutes to source out the correct bits and pieces of 1" PVC from my "bucket o' parts". I used a quietone 4000 pump, Way overkill, a ball valve and union. Oh yeah, bits of 1" PVC. Basically what I came up with was this. I soon realized there was quite a bit of errant spray from my quick job. So I decided to build a spray shield out of some scrap acrylic I had laying around. Unfortunately I was still getting the reflectors wet and that caused me some concern. So I built another spray shield. Works much better now. I'll keep y'all posted on the progress. I've read that you likely won't see a lot of growth in the first several days. Also, for the record, these are the bulbs and reflectors I got at Lowes. - Ben -
  11. The other is a Jason fox "crazy fox". I'm not big on named coral. I just know what I like. [emoji1]
  12. Here's a more accurate representation of my two favorites. - Ben -
  13. I have an original Cornbread mummy chalice. Got it from a friend breaking down his tank. I am not wonderful at photography. Sorry. This is an untouched iPhone pic. It's crazy bright.
  14. I should really update this soon...
  15. It's all good! We have NAFTA, remember? Lol!
