  1. Juiceman's AGE 200 Gallon Reef

    Man, there's so much more coral than I thought was in there at this point! Can we get some close ups of the euphyllias at the bottom?
  2. Isaac's 180+

    Not going to lie...Isaac kinda making me want a printermakerthingie.
  3. nice sized bristleworm looking for a new home

    That's not very sporting, Isaac! I catch mine the old fashioned way - sneak up on them and snatch them w/ forceps! Rarely works at all, and truly rare to catch a whole worm. I'm in the camp w/ Gig 'Em - catch and kill, because there are a hundred more you can't see.
  4. ALK dump - can't get back down to normal levels

    Well, the doser has definitely been off since the dump. First plug pulled. Thanks - I figured I was kind of stuck with the waiting game, since the numbers weren't improving w/ each H2O change. I feel like I should just buy a dang dKH checker, since that's how everyone seems to reference Alk.
  5. ALK dump - can't get back down to normal levels

    Not sure I follow. I'm at ~175ppm, which is 9.7dkh or 3.5meq/l.
  6. In trying to dial in my new doser, I botched the timer adjustment and emptied a pint of Alk solution into my tank the other day. Tested 300+ (was blinking, so I assume 300 is the Hanna limit) Weds morning, and I've since done 4 water changes - 20g, 20g, 15g, 15g, but I'm still at 175 (90g total volume). Anything I can do but wait it out?
  7. Have $200.00 to start a reef tank, is this enough?

    Nope. Come back when you have $2,000 and low expectations on what a "decent" sized tank is.

    Love it!

    Same here

    Don't give up your day job!
  11. Bobcat's 75gal First Reef Build

    I have a brand new bottle of reagent and all 5 cuvettes are clean and ready to go.
  12. Site software upgraded

    OK good, glad to know I'm not the only one who can't get in via tapatalk.
  13. Bobcat's 75gal First Reef Build

    Well, to combat those Alk swings, I installed a BRS doser today. Actually went much more smoothly than I expected. Let's hope the timer works correctly and my dosing amounts are correct...
  14. Dumb Question Amnesty - BRS doser

    Yes - slide on mounting "clip". Not worried about pinches as I have clean lines to/from the pump. Thanks for the confirmation. Was 99.9% sure but didn't want to start in on this project w/o being certain.
