  1. Thanks for checking Jolt. I don't think it's going to fit, but I'll measure on my end again.
  2. Hey Jolt, How tall is that skimmer? BRS has it at 19.75. Is that pretty accurate? Thanks, Grey
  3. Oh the humanity! 😳😳 Has anyone raised young brittle star "fry" successfully? -Grey
  4. I think I can hose it down for sure. My main concern is leaving a harmful residue if I use any solution. My RO/Di unit is on the way. From what I've read it's not especially important to clean the tank with RO/DI, but I just want it to be clean and free of any *harmful* chemicals... -Grey
  5. Amazing tank, thank you for sharing the build here, and keeping it going. It's very inspiring! -Grey
  6. I'm starting to clean up an old tank that has been sitting open air, in a room, and has collected a lot of dust. I can vacuum out the majority, but I would like to get suggestions on a cleaning solution to help get it started. I'm thinking a 30/40 percent vinegar solution... Use that as a wipe and soak it out over a couple of weeks before adding live rock. What do you use to clean your bare tanks, that would be reef safe? I don't need to clean a bunch of old corraline at this point.
  7. Hey. I might be interested! Let me know if this stuff is still available. Thanks, Grey...
  8. Thanks y'all. I'll try to keep pics of the build starting this weekend with a sniff test, and a lid DIY build.
  9. Greetings ARC, I'm glad to find what looks to be a really active club here in the Austin area. I suppose I'm what you would call a returning reefer, though I think the term reefer would be generous in describing my past efforts. In college I had a 40 gal that went from a marine tank with UG filter, to a FOWLR tank (interesting story there with a mantis shrimp), to something resembling a reef tank with a lot of algae in it. In that time, and in the time since, I've done a ton of reading and researching, never really giving up on the idea that I would one day have the ideal reef tank. I'm currently looking to set up a small nano tank (28 gal bowfront) as a family project with my kids. This was a project that I wanted to do years ago, and had started to acquire equipment for including the tank and lighting. The project was never completed, and when we moved several years ago, the space I had planned for the tank went away. I've decided to start the project over, still with the kids, but wow have things changed in the years since I was first researching this project! I know I'll have to adapt a bunch, including replacing equipment that I paid good money for years ago, but is now not supportable (CF lighting). I still need to find the right spot for this project, and the kids and I are working on that now. I have some very specific plans for the tank still, and I hope to find a great supportive group here to help out. Thanks to the Founders and Mods for their efforts in making this club happen! Kind Regards, -Grey
