    diesel3443's 80g SPS Reboot

    Glad to see it survived. My first one went through an MP10 and didn't make it. Second one has been in tanks with foam covers on them.

    BBMarlin's 76G - Skimmerless SPS Reef

    Sorry to hear about the crash. Always a fear...and I'm getting ready to start trying SPS again. A little advise on the tank. I've got the PA Crystaline 130 with the external overflow. They use the Tideline overflow. It's extremely difficult to keep it quite. The rear box is lower than the inner box so it's hard to get the water level in the outer box high enough to stop the waterfall noise. I had to raise my emergency drains so the water in the outer box was about 1/4" from the top. I finally ditched it after about a year and got an Exotic Marine overflow. It's dead silent. I just had another reefer come over to check it out. He's about to order a PA tank too. He's currently using the Reef Synergy Ghost overflow which is the same basic design as the Tideline and the noise in it is his main complaint.

    Planet Aquarium 130g

    I feel bad for never updating this thread...just not much happening with the tank. I finally got my PO4 up and stabilized in the .1 - .15 range consistently for about the last month. It had been staying around .03 -.04. And of course with that comes more algae!!!!! Got home Sunday and saw my CSB was ready for its closeup. The disc is now around 6" - 7" across.

    Hi. I think I had the 16" overflow. Exotic was great to work with. Not sure that you would need to tell PA anything about the holes. But, knowing that they can mis-drill I would take as many measurements as you can to send to Exotic. Taylor didn't charge me any extra for the templates. Or you may be able to get Exotic to send you a template that can be sent to PA.

    ReefHaus 75 Gallon Resurrection

    As I was reading this I kept thinking "is this my future he's talking about?" I've been renting for the past several years and decided it's time to buy my own place again. I think my best option is a townhouse where there's no outside maintenance. I've been browsing the options out there and one thing I keep looking for is a floorplan with that open area under the stairs to hide all the equipment!

    He's fat and healthy and is about 4" long. My female clown is constantly running him away from her corner which usually ends up in water being splashed everywhere. Other than that he doesn't bother anyone else in the tank. He's a little frantic in the video. I had the screen off the tank and she charged him and he jumped. He actually almost made it into the other tank but bounced off the side of the tank and luckily onto a towel. You will need a hood or screen on your tank because he does jump when he's startled.
