    I decided to treat my 10gal tank in my office with one capsule. Unfortunately, I can't have a camera a work, but the bryopsis had just about covered every...including my sand. I treated the tank approximately 10 days ago, and the tank is nearly completely bryopsis free. What is still there is white and dying. Completely effective...I did not witness any side-effects to anything. Happy Reefing.

    Tried to get some pics of the "Sassy Pearl" I picked up from happyhourhero. Needless to say, I need a new camera. It's been doing really well in the tank so far. The PE is amazing! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Sorry we have not had a club meeting in a while. Life is still hectic for me after if got turned upside down so I have not been able to focus. While there is nothing official planned we have been invited to share in the grand reopening of SB Reefs after their move. Mike plans to feed all that come plus he is having raffles that he will be offering bonus tickets to club members. I will post the details later today and hope to see you there if you can make it. I will work on getting something official together in the near future. Richard Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks lobstergrabber. I'd have been calling regular welding places and never thought of places that fix boat props Anywhere, here's the result. It's not trimmed yet, and not going to until I decide 100% if I'm rebuilding it anyway and no point wasting more expensive oak. Looking for opinions though. In the pic the almost 2 inch lip left on each side is visible. If trimmed it would obviously be another 3/4" less of a lip. This one, or rebuilding, would still be trimmed to match the side benches above. One pic is top down. The lights were not yet added to the Apex and came on dark and very blue. Lights are on an RMS rail, which in turn rests on a rack I can push fore and aft, that rests on side rails. Top has lips and will be filled in with egg crate. Back is raised to go above the sea swirls but will drape some 1/8" netting across the back. Front picture is with door flipped open. It looks like the end is white for some reason, but it is oak. The edge of it is white, but would be covered by trim. So, opinions. Trim it and live with it, or move on and come back around to building this again later and have the trim actually hang down around the edges?

    That was my thoughts as well with gfo and carbon reactor added inline on the return line the head pressure loss was a concern. I am really only lookin for about 800gph through sump but with reactors and all probably gonna be more like 1k and up. Thanks fellas gonna go with the 6

    LOL, it hasn't. I just posted on mine as well though. Got some pods added and FINALLY starting on the canopy! Will have light soon! Even with no light, and never seeding it with anything yet, already have some spots of red and purple coraline starting. I guess the pukani carried it in

    Wow. I ended up with a serious case of lazy Or, maybe I just needed a break, lol. In any event, my goal from long ago of having at least the first few fish introduced before the kids and grandson visit within a couple weeks from now isn't going to happen!!! I'm finally getting back to it though and working on the canopy now, and getting those lights up is really the only remaining hold up. I have a long list of other things, but nothing that would be a show stopper. I hope to have some pics of an almost done canopy soon!! In the meantime, it hit me that the tank already cycled from the pukani and has been sitting there just circulating for over three months now. So, I figured with no lights, and no predators it was a perfect time to get some pods going. I wish it had crossed my mind sooner. I used the new member buy one get one from Algae Barn so introduced over 11k pods, and also have enough phyto to feed them until I have other things in the tank. LOL, amazing how excited my wife was just looking in the pod bag with a flashlight. I'm close enough now though I think I may run by Mike's this weekend and get a thing or two to get the quarantine clock going Maybe a firefish, and a yellow prawn goby if he has both in right now, or just browse and see what jumps out into a bag heading home, lol.

    It looks like they could be H. gibessi, Portieria, or even Botryocladia. Here is a good site to pinpoint it down. http://www.live-plants.com Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    That's huge if it's a majano. Though honestly that was my first thought as well on a couple of this pics. Not sure I am sold on the last pics being them though. If they are majano they spread like aptasia. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exactly just as you said. The most common place for a leak is the the bulkhead, a lot take a pair of channel locks and crank down as hard as they can. All it needs is to spin it on till contact then a 1/4 turn. You get it as tight as you can the gasket gets squeezed out creating a leak. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Damn, that sucks. You have no back up? I have a couple 12VDC batteries wired together and charged with a BatteryMINDer. Gives my MP60 about 4 days standby backup power (calculated) at any time. Simple system, I detailed in my build thread. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
