  1. Saw the tank, looks good but not interested in this particular setup. Good luck to you. 

  2. Wish I could help but no luck; ended up going the route of the Red Sea Peninsula. The issue I ran into was having a company come on site to build the stand into the wall but no takers. Sorry I couldn’t be anymore help and good luck to you.
  3. Looking for a company who builds steel stands in the Northern VA area, closer to the Fauquier County. Names, numbers would be appreciated. Thanks in advace.
  4. Duplicating from the DIY forum.... Asking around, the Red Sea S500 comes standard with chiller plumbing however I was wondering if anyone used the plumbing for the chiller and converted it to use an inline canister versus the chiller. If so what was your experience? Did it work? Otherwise switching a chiller for an inline canister setup.

  6. Thats a real shame, the sexy shrimp have a rep to be a peaceful species of shrimp. In regards to your cleaner shrimp chasing the sexy into a hole it could be a variety of things, personality of the shrimp or the size of the tank you had them in. What tank size did you have the shrimp in?
  7. If thats the case, harlequin shrimp, then I can't help you with that one
  8. In my 300, I have three sexy shrimp, three cleaners and three fire shrimp. Never had an issue, perhaps due to the size of the tank but they all steer away from one another. The biggest problem you will have is finding them, my three sexy shrimp tend to hid (directly) in the anemone and elegance. I have numerous small brittle less than a dime size and again no issue. Hope that helps a little bit.
  9. Newbie2014, be careful, one day your doing a 5 gallon water change and than a 30 gallon water change. The tanks only keep getting bigger.
  10. Always interested to see the concept of others in the hobby, I agree that sometimes you shouldn't touch a tank if the parameters and corals are doing well but I guess I've been indoctrinated for the weekly water changes. Too bad it has to be costly with salt and such, I switch out 30-35 gallons a week on a 300gal
  11. Does anyone think there's a benefit one way or the other? Weekly versus monthly. I always thought growth in corals was better with a weekly water change.
  12. Epleeds- Religiously I do 10-12% weekly.
  13. Couldn't find a forum based off of this topic so if someone knows where it is, please send it my way... Question, what's everyone's idea about water changes--- How often should you do one? Once a week, a month and so forth.... Just wondering, food for thought. Always read numerous ideas one way or the other. Personally, never had issues and prefer once a week for water changes.
  14. I stand corrected after reading the reef article as this is what you suggested. I'll try this out and see what happens.
  15. Well the proof is in the pudding, you sold me on the lens just by the article itself. I'll try that before I grab a camera.
