I am officially known as weird water guy at walmart.  Only was able to get 10 gallons at lfs the other day and they would have closed by the time I got there today.  Rodi unit is in my mom's basement somewhere and would need new membranes most likely.  So here's 20 gallons and the wife is now running out for 10 more.

I recommend the filter cup 150% F that sock!

I was hearing about that. What exactly is it?  For passively running carbon or something?

It’s a cup that replaces the filter sock. You just drop it in the sock hole. It holds floss. A lot easier to dump floss than clean a sock every 3 days.

I'll probably pick one up.  I was planning on changing the mesh sock out anyway.  Mesh aint catching shit imo.

 

Tomorrow the plan for the tank is to bring all the extra equipment shit over to the new tank and do a full on transfer.  Need to pick up a gfci receptacle adapter.

Do you have a running tank? I thought you had one with a nanobox light!?!?

Yup. I have an 8 gallon cube running but not much in it.  Flaming prawn, ywg, and another small goby with a very small amount of coral.

I have a way oversized heater in the 8 gallon checked by an rkl, the 2 mp10s, and the nanobox is also going to be used for the sump most likely.

Seems like everything survived the transfer.  Got lots of stuff to move around and glue.  AI's acclimation setting is a pretty cool feature.  

We might go up to the lfs to pick out something small.  It's nice to actually have room for stuff.

In other news, the sleeve on the rod for the one mp10 shattered.  So I'm looking for a new wet side if anyone has one they want to sell.

I wanted to get daytime shots but didn't have time today. Just flicked the lights on to get this.  I still got to find a place for everything and glue it all down, plus take frags off the rock from the old tank and sump the old rock.

Also still trying to tidy up the sump area some more.  Everything is tangle free and zip tied but need to secure the bundles of wires against the walls so they aren't in the way.

Equipment is rkl, 2 mp10s, titanium heater, 150s skimmer, and a Rio return pump.  A lot of people complained about the stock ato, but it seems to be working pretty good.  I do still have an old jbj ato and aqualifter if needed.

I did some things today. Got the new westside in the mail and got it back on track.  Erin also wanted to pick some things up.  Went for 1 or 2 baby clowns, left with no fish but a few coral and inverts. 

 

 

Thing is huge.  Bigger than a golfball.

Erin insisted on the fan worm

Nice size colony of candycanes for 20 bucks

Torch.... super excited about this. Same type that I lost a long time ago.  I grew a single, dime sized polyp bailout into a grape fruit sized skeleton with probably around 12ish heads.

Sun coral

This is another "erin" coral.  It is nice.... wired purple color with turquoise randomly around it

Still needing to move stuff around.

Also as a question, has anyone used gorilla glue in their tanks?  Found some big tubes of glue which I've been looking for for a while, but most glues have cyanoacrylate.... gorilla glue has ETHTL cyanoacrylate.... I'm not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Sun coral looks good just make sure to feed it........I love them but taking care of them sometimes isnt my thing........

 

What are you gluing the corals ? I just use ICE Gel I love the stuff....I also had some 2 part epoxy sticks I picked up at HD and it worked also. Just look for drinking water safe on the package.......if it says that your good to go......

Yup. Coral.  I'm thinking of taking a crap coral and a small Tupperware of water and just doing an experiment to see if it's safe.  I need to pick up more two part stuff.  

I made sure to put the sun coral in an accessible spot.  I originally wanted it upside down but that makes feeding each head a PITA.

Thanks Dave!  I'm really happy with out the smaller side worked out. Not amazed by the right side, but am thinking once I get more coral and let stuff grow in, it should be good. 🙂

I have used the gorilla glue gel on about 5 lps frags.. well glowing the frag plug to the rocks. never saw any negative effects. Skimmer didn't act up or anything weird.. dunno if its truly ok to use lol

 

Cool sun coral ! I love those things but being nps I am with spectra it was a pain in the butt feeding it.
