  1. I read that on the 525 and up Red Sea is now using marine plywood instead of pressed wood; do you think in that case the stands will still be an issue? What type of tank are you currently running? I’ve also read good things about Waterbox systems recently but the crowd seems quite split on loving or hating rimless tanks.

  2. Great recommendations and thoughts; I hadn’t even thought about the splashing when cleaning. Top eurobrace like the SCA sounds like it could create a good look but better experience with cleaning. Keep the thoughts coming! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m looking at several different rimless systems in the 60” range (red sea reefer 525, SCA 150 etc.) for my next build. One thing I’m paranoid about is long term durability. While love the look of the Red Sea I have serious difficulty believing that five panes of glass at that size (and internal pressure) sealed only with silicon and no bracing system will hold up for 10+ years. The SCA eurobracing system looks a little more stable. Does anyone have experience with these tanks or other rimless tanks they can share either good or bad feedback? Any thoughts are appreciated.

  5. Moderator close thread. I just realized I replied to my own thread from years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yep, I had the same issue after running my typhoon 3 (but it had been running for years). I called them and was told it has to do with build up in the ASOV. You can either open it up, clean it with a flat head screw driver and reassemble (May do the trick, or order a new ASOV for $20. But that is definitely what it is. They are very responsive to calls as the other member mentioned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Any thoughts from reefers who have used fixtures they live would be appreciated. On the high end are the AI Hydras and Kessils worth they money? How do they compare and hold up over time? What would be other some other recommendations? Open to all considerations. I do like the option to mount on a bracket and leave my ceiling alone on this next build. I also would like something ideally that can be programmed to have a night moonlight setting. But again open to all thoughts; thanks for the help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. My sps grow great and color well under LED. Pros: cheap power cost and no bulb replacement cost. Cons: more algae growth on glass, needs regular cleaning the keep looking pristine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Looks great! And less of a chemical hog than an sps set up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Don't think so - it was spreading without anyone picking at him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Recently began losing a 10 year old sand sifting star; I should say minimum of 10 years because that's how long I've had him. This week I noticed his arms undergoing necrosis like sea star wasting disease in the wild. Has anyone noticed this in stars in captivity? Is this simply how very old stars waste away? A bit of a bummer, this guys was my oldest livestock and went through two tanks with me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Salifert for everything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That's what I'm thinking cause I don't relish the idea of saturating he wood w water and I will be sanding out the inside anyway and restaining. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Anyone have a good solution to cleaning old, thick salt creep? Refurbishing a stand and have some serious clean up to do. Taking any and all recommendations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. the fridge helps keep it from hardening?! I have this same problem all the time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
