  1. Excess bacteria most likely, ride it out. Are you running biopellets? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No worries, thanks for chiming in. I will write a Paul B version of my morning/day/night, but not before I get some rest, been up for 26 hours straight now, 4 different airports, a train station, and a bus. Hooked the inverter off the deep cell marine battery. Currently powering the mag five return pump, 2 mp10’s, and a box fan right by my face. First order of business when power returns: charge and setup my eco tech battery backup. Purchase my own deep cell marine battery for emergencies. From a quick visual walkthrough, no losses, inverts and fish are all good, coral looks like some polyp retraction, but will survive. We will see in a few weeks if there were any big hiccups for the 8 hours without great flow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks! I’m back overnight, going to run out to some friends who have a deep cell cycle that I can just hook up to the inverter. Just worried about the 7 hours of no water movement and how it will fair. Yikes! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. How many of you lost power? I’m stranded in NYC taking a bus home after every single flight out this afternoon and tonight got canceled. Dog sitter is reporting no power, and sent these, which don’t bode well for it getting restored anytime soon My battery backup is out of juice, so they’ve got a bubbler literal battery backup. I’m praying my corals will hold out till I get home and can hook up a marine battery to my power inverter and get things moving again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It’s looking awesome! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. So no more sand? I'm betting you don't need a ton of flow for the BTA's, I'd save your money!
  7. I've cut RBTA's (red and rainbow) at a little larger than silver dollar sizes. I've had minimal loss. Of course, then you have two even smaller anemones. More importantly, I'd make sure to get the cleanest straightest cut through the mouth and foot, and maybe have some iodine on hand. Now if you're talking a CSB, I'd probably need a change of pants.
  8. I've found that whatever flow I thought was strong enough in my nano, wasn't. Now I have x2 MP10's at almost full speed in sync, plus the return. I think no matter what, you'll always have a spot that detritus will settle in.
  9. I'm not an expert, but I imagine if could cling to a metal surface, it will do just fine with a plastic surface. You could always get some light grit sandpaper and rough it up mildly.
  10. Sky rockets in flight! *peeeeeeeew* I think you'll be OK, pretty cool to watch!
  11. Home depot sells spray paint that is heat resistant, for things like grills. I would imagine with the proper application and dry time, it would be completely fine.
  12. Personally I would try and get rid of some of the rock. I like the over all shape of that you're going for!
  13. I think it’d be fine Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. If you got rid of the maroons maybe? I've contemplated doing something like this in my 22, but there's enough to worry about besides trying to pull 10 or so clownfish. It would be cool!
  15. Here is a video of the tank a little over a year ago: Here it is today, the LED's are seemingly much harder for my camera phone to capture than the T5's:
  16. That’s a beautiful tank, nice grab Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  17. She's looking plump, I'm hoping there are some eggs on the way. I don't think I have the patience to raise them, but I might throw down some tile if I see they're in action.

  19. I never pay much attention to them, but I noticed today that my female seems particularly fat, like swollen. I've had them for almost 2 years, and they came as a "pair" from Divers Den. Sorry for the picture quality, but you can see the round contours on the female. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Well, Perculese found a home last night! It took her long enough (him really, but finding another perc bigger would be a challenge!) Fat fish just lays there, thought it was dead for a bit. I’ve never seen such an unenthusiastic fish in all my life. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Is that wood holding all the sump PVC going into it? You're not worried about it rotting? I like the light being able to swap up and down, you worried about rust?
  22. I had one back with the old 150. I preferred the Salifert kits.
  23. Once it takes off though I bet it will be fast.
  24. Thanks man! Trying to get something for all angles, top down wins though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Friday, and everything's alright! A rare sighting of SC Orange Passion, CB Malificent, and RR Acid Trip in a trifecta
