  1. Yes youre right. How come this isnt implemented more? Actually, this was the first time I've seen it in action at that store. Seems to work very well since all his tanks are heavily stocked.
  2. How I set up mine Kalk is this. Check evap daily (on the low side of the year). pump that much water into the Kalk reactor. and have a regular ATO in as well. This way the amount of Kalk is always the same no matter the evap. I also dose 2 parts on the side.
  3. So I was in cali last week. checked out this LFS. The owner had a very interesting saltwater system set up. The DT would drain into a sump/tank, with the return being at the bottom, under the sand bed. WAter isnt going up/down through baffles, and No skimmer, just everything gets pushed through the 3-4" sand/gravel bed. all this fish seems very healthy. He's said he's been running this style set up for 30 years with very little loss. I did not see any dead fish in any of his systems. He uses this for his coral systems too. No skimmer anywhere. Anyone done this before? Potential issues?
  4. Will this be an issue soon? This is my first Goni ever, so not sure if this will be an issue with the duncan below it Anyone got any idea? or should I move one.
  5. I have a friend with both in his tank. got them both as super small juvi. ~1". havent seen the tank in a year or so, but he had everything, mainly sps, some LPS and some zoas.
  6. I’ve had my L1 replaced twice in the last 3-4 years. It would stop running all of sudden. When I open to clean, the impeller would not come out easily. I had to yank it out hard. It melted and kinda fused with the casing. Both times it was the same. it seems like your sump have to be completely clean. Nothing but water should be pumped out. Else stuff would get stuck and eventually grind up the impeller. So far this 3rd one has been running about 10 months, cleaned it once already and everything inside looks clean still.
  7. Lots of nice stuff buddy. Looking good
  8. This is accurate! Hasnt change color since i brought it home.
  9. Cool. Can’t wait for mine to do something. Been a month and it just barely encrusting the glue.
  10. Got this guy as Flame Thrower Chalice at the winter meeting. It's growing nice, starting to encrust onto the main rockwork. Lets see what'll turn out in a few months.
  11. Got this guy from Eric (PizzaGuy) last month and its been going super. But not much growth yet. One of my newest favorite acro. So lets capture its progress and we'll see what it'll turn out to be in another month or two.
  12. Who’s up for a group buy?
  13. I got you, You’ll be the first I’ll share with
  14. Maybe lol orange Aps would be cool
  15. I have had this happen before. but they came back after only a few months, but this one is way over a year, maybe even 2-3 years.
