    I'd trade my right arm in for that! Nice work!

    Oh no! This is what you do to the pretty things I give you!? 😥 Kidding. My "colony" is in heal mode for a couple months but should have some nice branches to cut off in the summer. Hopefully the skimmer overkill alleviates the issue.

    Absolutely! They look exactly as how you see them in person! That's quite hard with Radions I've found.

  9. Hello fellow ARCers! It finally happened... the old tank is officially retired as we moved houses March of 2017. With that comes the end of the old FarmerTy mega-thread... it treated me well over the years. Here it is for reference and also as a tool for punishment for new reefers to join the club.

    I like my Jaebo BC return pump... Silent, variable, and been working for 3 years so lasts longer than their circulation pumps.

    Thanks for the first hand experience. I plan to try a Kamoer out as well. My MTC reactor isn't keeping up with my coral uptake anymore and I have a giant Deltec CaRX but it could never keep a stable effluent. I was going to try the Kamoer on it and see if I can keep it stable. If so, I'll run that as my new CaRX.

    Short answer bud... Its the reactor design. I ran 4 reactors up to this point, 3 worked well and never had issues with unsteady flow that constantly slowed down... One did. After trying everything to try to troubleshoot the one... Came down to design flaws to me regarding pressure. Some say you can run a prefilter for the CaRX but that didn't work for me either. So really, get an old PM CaRX, a Korallin, or an MTC Pro Cal and you can ditch the peristaltic pumps. Otherwise, run a peristaltic or be ready to kick up your flow every 7-10 days when it slows down again. Just my 2 cents from the reactors I've played with.

    I never looked into identifying stoneroller so honestly don't know. No, I haven't run across that one Domincan.

    You got it! Its TCK... All he probably did is hit the saturation bar up 5 clicks and add the word plutonium. [emoji23] I love the diabolic Pacman... Which I was told is the better of the 3. Interestingly, the WWC afterparty... Who's online shots make it look like its from Mars... Pretty much looks like a pink Floyd... So its not a bad one for yellow too.

    FWIW, the pikachu looks less nice then the others but I think that's due to where I placed it. I have it in too high par. I recently removed it from the display and have it in lower par in the frag tank. Hopefully it'll shine in that environment.

    Tyree Pink Lemonade! That's what it looks like under Radions. [emoji44] I have the pink Floyd, pikachu, and diabolical Pacman. I'm excited to see which will win the crown of best yellow acro.

    Bwahaha... I'll send you my water bills! [emoji16] I did do one 4 months ago when my gonis of 3 years started to die off and I couldn't figure out why. It didn't help. [emoji31] Looking back, I think it was because I added some wild gonis to the tank and they may have brought in some malignant wild bacteria that my aquacultured gonis couldn't handle. You see a similar type reaction with anemones sometimes. Main reason is I did nothing to the tank and reintroduced some gonis that Jimbo saved for me and they are fine again. What a bummer... I lost some large beautiful colonies of gonis. Cue the pictures to distract!

    That mille is the best fighter ever. I'm going to surround my anemone with milles is the new plan. They both stalemate. Most acros just lose.

    Thanks bud! If you saw the green cyano party in my tank right now combined with me rescaping my colonies, you'd take that back! [emoji23] Acros are at least all super happy. [emoji16]
