  1. Time for a quick video update. Tank is pretty much running on autopilot right now and pretty stable...cross all my fingers!

  2. Lots of progress specifically in terms of house construction, stand, and tank assembly. We're on target for moving in on 8/15, so we really want to have the stand and tank in place and ready to stage the rock and equipment for adding water by the start of August. The builder is being great about allowing us 'early' access to the house so that we're ready to go when we get the actual keys. The stand is roughed out and has been put in place in the house so that we can start working on shimming/leveling and doing some marine epoxy to seal it. Next we'll start planning the skin that faces the living room and begin looking at the canopy. Tim continues to make great progress on the tank itself and I'm incredibly happy with how it's going. The seams where the front connects to the sides will be masked on each side with the framework and trim.

  3. Made decent progress on the outer stand skin yesterday. The bottom and top surfaces were painted with Rustoleum Appliance paint to protect against water. We then installed some plastic mesh to the bottom to provide a little standoff for any trapped water to evaporate, and ended with a sheet of rubber attached to the stand front and sides that will redirect any water back into the fish room and drain. We pre-drilled (2) 3" holes through the top of the stand. These will be used for the internal overflows and return lines, there won't be any external overflow on the system. After that we installed a trimmed down piece of 4' x 8' trim board as the skin's initial layer.

  4. What did you do this July 4th weekend? I piddled around putting together some of my 300 gallon Recurve Bowfront.

  5. PM'd, Yeah, a lot of people lost stuff including myself. I do have several "baby" polyps you can have NC. You'll need to carefully super glue them to rocks, they're pretty boyant when expanded.

  6. In preparation of our move and transfer to the new recurve tank we will be selling the 226 peninsula tank (build thread and extra pics here): I'll be transferring the majority of the livestock to our new tank between 8/15-8/25, so buyer will need to pick up from our house in south Austin no later than 8/30. Pickup could be sooner as soon as we have things transferred. Included are: tank - Deep Sea Aquatics, dimensions 84" x 24" x 27 1/2" tall. It has (2) 2" PVC cross braces, a PVC bottom, and the overflow is centered on the left side with (5) pre-drilled holes for drains/returns/electric. 226 gallons, 433 lbs empty. stand ( 7' x 2' x 36") - interior painted with white marine epoxy, cabinet has been painted black and has a black melamine layer on the back. The two left cabinets house the overflow/sump/ato reservoir. right 'dry' cabinet is used for storage and equipment. canopy - custom hand-made low profile includes the Tunze wavemaker build into the overflow, sump & return pump in stand, BML light fixtures in canopy, and custom auto-topoff reservoir in stand. No fish included, but happy to convey some of the rose anemones, leathers, and other corals (gold midas paly, rodactis, etc). Some of the live rock will be available as well since we aren't transferring everything. Because of the timing and trying to simplify this for the move, I'm asking much less than I think it's all worth. $850

  8. Hello All I have decided to rescape a bit. I am selling either in pieces or as a whole tower. It's three rocks in total. Most coral will be removed except where it has based out. All rock is well established Bottom rock is about 5 lbs. Covered in pink interstellar mushrooms and another mushroom. The rest of the corals will come off (goni and jawbreaker). The zoa rock on the bottom is not attached and therefore not included. $115 Middle rock is over a pound or so. Has a red monti cap and a Jason Fox beach bum monti. Some of both will be removed but will still be sold as rather large colonies. Will also not include the frags glued to the red cap. $50 The top rock is just over a pound as well. The base of most of the stuff on there will be impossible to remove. On there is a pink lemonade, a diablo milli, a tranquil milli, and a jade dragon milli. Each on their own is well over $100 per frag. $125. Or all in for $250 I circled the stuff that won't go for the most part. Yellow lines indicate where the rocks separate. They have a wooden rod between with no glue or epoxy. If interested please call or text. 512 656 0720 Thanks, Preston
