Please add my new RSM tank thread to the list.

This has been great!

 

Thanks

Jim

 

Added Jim. Sorry I have been slacking on finding new RSM members lately. :P Thanks for sending me the link. This sure makes my life a bit easier. I also saw your custom rack posts in your thread. I will create a link to that a bit later as well.

 

Anyone with an RSM run a chiller? I thought I found one member who was but can't seem to find that thread anymore.

 

I remember reading this too ... let me look it up and post it in the original post of this thread.

There is a really nice lighting mod on RC that adds a 65w bulb in the front lid. Looks very promising!

I can't figure out how to seperate the two halves of the front lid -- the three screws come out after removing their press-in covers, but I can't figure out how to seperate the hinge area. Any ideas?

Nice mod. I would be worried about heat issues. As it is my tank gets really hot with the stock bulbs. The extra actinic must really show bright colors. Something to consider.

I've recorded around 1 degree F increase in temperature.

 

Our local fish group had an interesting discussion about tank temperatures. The general concensus was that you should quit trying to hold down the temperature unless it's trying to go above 84. If it stays below 84 without any chillers or other serious equipment, then set up the tank to run ALL the time at that temp. It's the CHANGE that does the most harm.

 

If your tank drops down to 77-78 at night, but you struggle to keep it at that temp during the day, why not set your heaters to hold it at something like 82 all the time? 77 to 84 is a BIG temperature rise -- 82 - 84 is no big deal.

 

Just a thought from some people who have WAY more experience than me!

OK, so CM is an awesome guy. We figured out how to make me the OP on this thread through some back door way.

 

I will update this when I get some free time. If you are not on the list on the first page, shoot me a PM and I will add you.

 

Bluesky did an awesome job here and the framework is already there. Sorry to hear about his tank, he was a great RSM owner and we will miss him.
