  1. Small full set up Nano

    I've got a Nuvo Black Rimless 30L. I currently have it set up with a self leveling pad, Marineland 350 HOB, Aquamaxx Nemo 55w LED light, 40 pounds of Florida CC, some LR, and a small circulation pump. PM me if interested.
  2. FarmerTy's 215 gallon - No Water Changes SPS Tank

    I've oddly never been a fan of the queen angel. Or I should say, I've never considered it so nice that I wanted one. Truthfully, I'd never thought much of them until recently. I'm probably overdue for restocking since my tank is so fish light and everything looks good. I got my fish trap in the mail and I need to remove a damsel that's started to bite my fingers! I keep trying to talk myself into going fallow like you have, but I'm afraid to lose my wrasses. The stock that I've been getting recently hasn't been passing QT. Luckily most of them are under guarantee. How much do you charge to babysit and QT my fish?
  3. What's happening everyone?

    Haha! Green Starburst Polyps are actually really popular. Someone recently told me that GSP remains one of his top 5 sellers in his store! Don't cheapen what you have just because you have an abundance of it. No matter how long I'm in this hobby, I still keep some in every tank. I wouldn't mind trading you a frag for a piece from your glass. Right now I have ORA Green Pocillopora and ORA Sour Apple Birdsnest on plugs.

    It's probably less of a factor when you have a lot of corals. He might pick on one or two, but there are so many that (hopefully) he doesn't single any out for termination. I've been thinking of getting a Lemon Butterflyfish for over a year, but I like my Euphyllias too much to take the chance. I've had my baby Emperor for three months and I haven't seen him pick on anything. I've heard that it gets worse as they are changing though. So when are you getting the Queen Angel?

    Awesome fish Ty! Aren't Semilarvatus supposed to be one of the most destructive butterflyfish though? When Jake first got that huge tank into the shop I told him that he should order 20 of them for a display tank. I remember him looking at me like I was crazy!

    I think it looks pretty cool. GSP is nice when it's managed, but I'm sure you want some variety in there. If you're completely happy with the aquarium other than the GSP, then why not sell some rocks or frags? You could also trade it into the fish store for credit or dry rock. From what I know about GSP, I don't believe one polyp can start a new colony. As long as you remove the encrusting base, then it shouldn't grow back.
  7. The Maroon Lagoon V2.0

    Did you remove the anemone tower? I only say the one nem on the glass in the last FTS.
  8. Planet Aquarium 130g

    When do you start taking orders? I make decisions all day at work and I don't want to make any more!
  9. Oh nice! I thought you had reworked the lighting since you posted that after you took those pictures. It's a really clever idea. Do you ever burn your arms when you reach into the tank? I remember people saying the BML's ran pretty hot.
  10. The Money Pit

    Looks pretty good! This whole time I thought the tank on the right was an ATO reservoir, but it's actually a refugium. It looks like you've T'd off of the return line and it's going to gravity feed back into the return chamber? The aquascape looks great! Love the extra room along the perimeter.
  11. Um, I didn't want to bring this up, but I've been waiting three years to see how you mounted the lights. Love the big DJ!
  12. Beginner's 240 Gallon Reef Tank

    The best time to buy a skimmer is Black Friday, but they'll go on sale again as we get closer to Christmas. Dry rock takes a good 6 months to colonize and you won't need a skimmer right away unless you plan to stock heavily from the start. The next decent sale after Christmas would be Memorial Day.
  13. Need Advice on Stand Structure

    Add a fan to the back of the stand blowing out like a computer tower? The stand is 8'. Do you think that it will pull enough air to vent the whole area?
  14. Beginner's 240 Gallon Reef Tank

    The skimmer won't work in fresh water. You could cycle your rocks in a brute using salt water if you want to get a jump start. It's a good idea if you don't plan to fill the tank for a month or more. Truthfully, you could use the ASM just fine if you have the room. I had good success with a G4 back in 2002. I'm currently using an Aquamax skimmer with good results. It's not as quiet as a DC skimmer but they're cheaper and they have a small footprint. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  15. Need Advice on Stand Structure

    Here's a current picture of what it looks like today. I've removed the calcium reactor, media reactor and bp reactor so it looks a lot more spacious. Haha! I have 6 holes drilled on the right and 4 drilled on the left. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
