  12. Hello all, I'm looking for a WAMAS member who has drilling equipment and is willing to teach me how to drill. I have a Mr Chic Aqua 5mm rimless I'm making a refugium with. I would like to drill on the side for overflow and return 1" bulkheads. I have the bulkheads. I would also like to learn by drilling some scrap glass I can bring, or if you're confident in me, just drilling my tank. I know the cheaper drill bits from BRS are disposable after a while, so I'm looking for someone who wouldn't mind let me use one or has a permanent bit. Thank you!

  22. I'm hoping for help on two semi-related issues. First, the plumbing. I have two tanks with CPR overflows (a 55 FOWLR with a CS50 and my 75 DT with a CS100/102). I want to re-do the plumbing and connect to the threaded exterior of the bulkhead on each of these boxes; however, I can't seem to find anywhere that gives the size the bulkhead in terms of what I need. In other words, I'm looking for what size female coupler / adapter I need to connect the threaded bulkhead with the piping going downstream. It could be threaded / slip or threaded / threaded. I also know the CS50 inner diameter is 1/4" less than the on the other CPR boxes, but I'm not certain if that's true for the exterior threads. I don't want to disassemble the plumbing until I'm ready to proceed to completion, and can't figure out another way to determine the sizes I'm looking for. Does anyone out there know? I wish I could just drill the tanks, but they're tempered so that's not an option. Second, the fuge. Recently I've noticed my chaeto isn't growing like it used to, although the GHA in the tank itself I need to knock back periodically tells me the nutrients are there. It seem that some of it develops bubbles (probably oxygen, which ought to be a good thing), floats to the surface, and then shades the rest of the growing area. What lighting cycles are folks using (x hours/day, concurrent or counter-cycle to main lighting)? Also, does anyone run additional circulation / flow in their 'fuge beyond the regular through flow? I've seen the "swirling ball of chaeto" videos, and while it's certainly attractive at one level I suspect the 'pods would be less thrilled. So, I'm wide open to the collective wisdom of WAMAS. Thanks in advance!

  25. So I went digging around in my refugium today to see what kind of critters I had and to inventory chaeto and noticed that my sand bed has compacted to the point of concrete. I lightly chipped at it with a screw driver and it is really hard. What do I do? Help Please!!!
