  1. Cool! Thanks for sharing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I guess. I always see growth in other tanks and get "greener on the other side" symptoms. I am happy with the colors. I had a hard time with polyp extension for a while, but the additional MP10 on the front of the tank fixed that issue. It cluttered up the clean aesthetic I was shooting for, but function follows form in this case I guess. If my place could handle the heat, I would definitely go for T5/MH. LED's have been able to provide me with the energy savings, growth, and low heat output, that they are the best option for me personally. My electric bill was creeping upwards of $300 in the summers due to running my AC's at tops all summer for my dogs. I recently signed up for a program through Dominion that keeps my bill at a set cost all year round. Since then, I've been blasting my AC's, and could probably go back to T5's with no problems, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
  3. I've not fragged up in a while, but I've had to trim back a little faster these days. Something that struck me as a possible error on my part is that Homewrecker is only in about 170 par right now. Might explain the slow growth, either that or it was close to a nub when I bought it!
  4. You’ll have to share your tricks then. Like mentioned above, a cup or shot glass of rubble and the mushroom will grab ahold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Good luck trying to glue down shrooms! That’s like trying to glue down an anemone Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Scott711 did a group buy on some really solid super glue gel about 4 years ago. I know about 1.5 years ago he still was trying to move some extras. I'm still on my last tube, but the label has rubbed off at this stage, but it's been my favorite to work with. Also, in tandem with the super glue/epoxy sandwich, using the ocean wonders coraline purple epoxy. It stinks like crazy, but it seats real fast!

  8. Thanks, Tom! It's been a slow, but fun and challenging tank being the size that it is! Thanks for checking it out. Just remember, it's easy to make a small tank look full! So I broke down the frag tank. I've been traveling so much lately that another tank to worry about was a nightmare for me. I somehow packed all of the frags into the 22. I made water yesterday, and it was so calming just having to worry about one tank again, so I think I made the right decision. I'm very excited, because today my nano scraper finally came in the mail. It's nothing special, but it's cut through coraline in all the corners of the tank, and along the bottom with ease. Even if I have to change the razor blade every time, I didn't have to get my hands wet once, and it sliced through like butter. My old Algae Free plastic one snapped, I regret even starting with it. I wish Algae Free would go back to making nano sized tank scrapers with the razor blade attachment, but this will have to do! I can also cut it down in tight spaces, and was so inspired I snapped some photos:
  9. I wouldn't worry about doing a water change until you get your ammonia level sorted. And by sorted, I mean non existent.
  10. Makes me miss sand a little bit!
  11. My replacement blades came in 2 days. Still waiting on the scraper. [emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
