  1. Will be heading over to New Orleans next week. a few days before MACNA for some fun and then going to MACNA. don't know how many of y'all are still going. hopefully some of yall make it. It'll be my 3rd time going and the last 2 were way back.
  2. Generator 3750 Surge - $150

    Every reef tank needs a generator. This one is big enough to run everything on your tank and a small window ac unit. I had calculated up that it would be just enough to run all the necessities in my house with the 93 (refrigerator, chest freezer, small ac, and most of the tank life support) When I moved I setup the house for a bigger generator that I have now so this one isn't needed. Starts on the first of second pull every time even after sitting. Motor is small enough that almost anyone should be able to start it. It also comes on a 2 wheel cart that it easy for someone to wheel it around. Only 2 "bad" things on this generator: #1 - The gas tank is small, probably only 1-1/2 gallons, but it runs for several hours on that so not a huge problem. #2 the gas cap is cracked, I am sure with some searching a replacement could be found, I kept it in a shed its whole life so the crack was no issue for me. Plan was to use some bondo over the crack if push ever came to shove. Picture is not mine but is of the same generator model and is in similar condition.
  3. I have a couple things I am not going to need for the new build and figured I would offer them here first. 3 "sets" of LET 24" T5 setups (ballast, 4 waterproof endcaps, 2 mirro reflectors and wiring) The wiring harness has been shortened a little but there is still lots of wire for plenty of mounting options. These three "sets" will get you a 6 bulb T5 setup with the ability to turn on 2 bulbs at a time for a nice dusk/dawn effect. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/t5-ho-miro-4-retrofit-kit-let-lighting.html New $120 each set, asking $75 each set, $200 if you buy all 3 sets. I have bulbs that I will throw in with the setup but they have 12 months of use on them so they are more for verifying that everything is wired right than reef use at this point. Vortech Mp10WES - still in great shape, these are not the newest Quiet Drive but most can tell you the QD doesn't really lessen sound much on the 10 size. https://www.marinedepot.com/EcoTech_Marine_VorTech_MP10wES_Propeller_Pump_w_Wireless_EcoSMART_Driver_Adjustable_Flow_Aquarium_Powerheads-EcoTech_Marine-EM1253-FIPHAD-vi.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwhrzLBRC3ARIsAPmhsnWbuXdm5sbo3itHbhVb2J6x3IQ9vE9qjxcrQojh5fg4fhw9_ZTTVu4aAoRMEALw_wcB $100 each I can arrange pickup in Valparaiso (North of Fort Walton just a short way,beside Niceville)
  4. The Melenarus was out and eating last night. I am hoping the Rhomboid shows up tonight.
  5. I have moved and thanks to the tremendous amount of help from Richard (lobstergrabber) the tank is moved as well. Everything with the move went pretty smoothly. I built a new basic stand for the tank the day before the move and simply had to cut the holes for the plumbing once we had the tank there. We were able to load all the rock into a cooler in the truck and cover it with the old tank water. Everything seems to have made the move well. The clowns and angel and shrimp are out and enjoying the new rock layout, the two wrasses (rhomboid and melenarus) are both still hiding. hopefully they make an appearance soon.

  10. Naso Death

    by isolation tank I assume you mean acclimation tank, if so then that should work better, It also may work better to remove foxface and yellow for a few days to the QT, that would let the Naso establish himself and would possibly break the yellow and foxfaces territory. Naso's are pretty but they just get so dang big. They also have a reputation of eventually being the boss of a tank and being pretty vicious.

    Awesome, thanks
  12. RO System Recommendation

    I think Marine Depot sells a RO/DI unit called a Buddy or something like that, it all folds up into a tight triangle shape that looks like it would fit under a kitchen cabinet well. Water quality is kind of a big deal in our tanks so any of the unknown variables we can eliminate by filtering the water better the better off we are in the long run. More than likely what will make it through the RO membrane will be Phosphates which leads to algae farms (in most cases) in our tanks if its not managed well.

    Go ahead with your order. I haven't had time to work up a plumbing plan yet and I'm not really sure when I will get around to it. Thanks for the offer though!
