    Seeking extra CO2 cannister

    Can be 5# or 10#. Just to keep on hand when needed. Happy to pick up wherever is convenient for you. Marc

    Congrats bud! That's pretty cool. It's ok to pat yourself on the back for this achievement!!!

    The Maroon Lagoon V2.0

    Toss that with some sesame oil, ponzu, and sesame seeds [emoji1787][emoji1787]. But really, sorry to hear that happened. This hobby definitely tests one's resilience

    So a few articles I read mentioned that although the vast majority of ancillary jobs were eliminated, the maricultured farmers/divers are still tending and growing the corals. So that would hopefully mean an oversupply vs normal?

    Maxspect Gyre 250s

    I also use 2 xf250s with icecap and apex and it works great. Like Jim said, takes a little programming but there's enough templates out there.

    Sea Hare

    Do you still have the sea hare? I can use one for a few weeks to eat some of the GHA I got sprouting in places.

    The Maroon Lagoon V2.0

    Glad to hear you found a culprit. Did any ICP test reveal anything? My tank has also struggled to keep corals alive until a recent/my first Triton test showed elevated tin levels. So I also found a magnetic hook that sits above my sump was rusty, so after removing and doing 5×60 gallon water changes, corals are finally surviving and growing. Ive heard Metasorb can help, but I wouldn't rely on Curpisorb which many ppl have suggested. I used it for weeks wtih GAC and retested with no changes. Water changes are the only way I am seeing progress.

  9. It was the Forth Worth table then. Thx.
  10. Jolt, Do you know the names of that vendor/company setup to your left (when looking at your table)? Had a question for them on the name of a frag I bought. Thanks.
  11. Hope all the vendors are ready at open bc I only have an hour lol! Looking fwd to it. Can't believe ive never been.

    Rimless 180g "2nd child"

    Thanks for your thoughts. I do have the newer Apex which has monitored those crucial parameters continuously since day one. But yes, I have zero intention of buying any products from Triton or anywhere else. I can only imagine how much money they make on that. If they had an accurate hobby grade test kit for tin I would buy that, but doesnt seem like there is. My geo 618 reactor and AP carbon doser keep the alk/cal in shape. I test po4 daily with HannaULR, which is getting expensive too. I feel like a car mechanic that has tried everything to fix that squeaking and am running out of things to check.

    Thanks Victoly. I appreciate the angle you approach this. I guess, in a way, I am excited to have a tangible thing to focus on and target. And seeing a rusty magnetic hook above my sump added fuel to my fire to fix this. Because when Alk/temp/salinity have been rock stable for 4-5 months, my po4 and no3 are present sufficiently (.03-.08 and 16ppm-32ppm), have corraline sprouting everywhere, i am acclimating slowly to my LEDs even if the frags came from tanks with LEDs. And I have other LPS and a digitata and setosa alive, I don't know what else to do... But perhaps I will look to submit my 2nd test to multiple parties perhaps. Battlecorals coincidently, posted on R2R this week, that he also had high tin levels He experimented and sent the water to multiple test companies and the disparities were huge. Are these just scams haha?

    Rimless 180g "2nd child"

    So to attempt to reduce the tin problem, I have done the following : 1. Removed a rusty magnetic hook that was 18 inches above my sump. 2. Refreshed 1/2 cup of GAC 3. Placed 300ml of Cuprisorb inside my filter sock drains for max absorption 4. ~20% water change 5. Will place plolyfilter tonight Does anyone have experience with removing Tin from their tanks? Or how efficient cuprisorb is at removing metals? Also wondering if its bad to tumble it too much and if others permanently run it or polyfilters in their DT? I hope this was tied to that rusty hook, or because my tank and PVC are fairly new, which others anecdotally believe causes high tin levels for new tanks.

    Anyone heard of any updates on this? My googling didn't find much recent news on the interwebs
