    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.

    The SB boxes have a lot of purple that the phone camera picks up. I try and turn the blue channel almost all the way down but it still grabs it. This is not with the blues down. This side of the tank is a nice area.

    All of my tanks are always barebottom. Coralline covers the bottom eventually and corals encrust over it. Easier to clean and have high flow.

    Good stuff, Bif! I'd say the work you put into this definitely paid off. Do you still have that clam? -Kamran

    Well if you're color blind hanna checkers are the only way to go. They are easier and more precise, but more expensive per test...... for the first set of 25 test. The refills are only $8-10, for 25 more test. If you have the capital to fork out $150 for the 3 primary test (alk, ca, mg) go for it you won't regret it. Now if that is too much to swallow Red Sea makes a very good and repeatable kit for about $60 (includes all 3 test). For even less you can get the API saltwater master test kit, but in my oppion, you can get almost as accurate results by writing down random numbers. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Just some more pics. Sorry my montis suck. My Kole eats on them. It doesnt seem to effect anything other than PE though. The rainbow browned out because of high nutrients that I think I have gotten under control now and its coloring back up.

    You can go to the local big box hardware store and get liquid stump remover. It's potassium nitrate. Raise both with one dose. I'd keep it small to start with maybe 20ml a day to start. Sent from my SM-J700P 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

    there is room for a hang on back refuge. My very best advice is to watch those videos, less than an hour of your time. Then choose what you think would work best based off of budget and time. As long as your willing to put in the work you should tackle the issue. Interested in seeing front of tank. Good luck and im sure you will hear other's opinions.

    Hey everyone hope you can make it out and meet up at the SBReef's Grand Reopening Sunday at 11 am. Not an official club function but a great way to get together and chat and support one of our local businesses. Mike posted a seperate thread with details about raffles, food and specials. Hope to see a bunch of you there and catch up. Richard

    Tank looks great dude. Was dope to see it in person. The new that I got from you is doing great. Moving around the sump and has picked it's spot already. Can't wait until it grows out so I can move it into the main display.

    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

    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.

    I honestly think one inch thickness will be overkill. The reason they make the tanks that thick is the large expanses of acrylic like to bow so they make them thick and use the euro bracing to keep them as rigid as possible. The about of pressure exerted on any one spot won't be enough to cause any issues. I would think quarter inch would be more than enough and I would go for more overlap that I would go for thicker patch. If the coast is negligible between the two and you are going to have sand then go for it but if the cost different is large I think you could save the money and be perfectly safe.

    I paid less than $25 I think for both a 12x12 sheet of clear and a tube of 16 solvent but it was not weld on brand. I would just cover the holes and not try to get an insert to fill because a flat piece will be easier to get to seal. Probably just do a 5x5 or 4x4 patch which would be over kill but give you plenty of surface for a bond even if you are terrible at it like myself. Richard 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

    Brad would be a great one to help out on that, as an added bonus he might arrange and route wiring and such like he has on his 180 as a bonus. I am still randomly dealing with family stuff and don't really know when I will or won't be available right now. Brad can certainly let me know if he runs into something he needs help with, though I don't imagine there will be a need for that.

    That stinks Larry. Hope everything else fares ok and that the other two pieces recover. I am surprised that ten hours without power did so much damage. Richard Sent from my iPhone 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

    A multi-tool works good. Another thing is when using a PVC cutter, press down with out trying to cut it then turn. It goes thru like butta. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
