So came around to a water change and quick clean today. I dont think that the airstone is a good idea, the area is encased with black sludge and have some really odd white snot floating around in the tank, I'll leave it up temporarily and hope that some of the equipment in the Spec 3 still works so I can get this up and running correctly. I should have a 50GPH pump as well as the Hydor Pico Evo, both might fit, might even prohibit the use of the heater within the tank

So changes

  1. Airstone is not wanted in Reef Jar. I've had it in for a week and its clogged with gunk already. Am currently trying it again with no airstone to see how it works.
  2. Heater not required in Reef Jar, Reefjar hits 33C (91.4) with heater set to 25.5C (78f)
  3. Rock to big for Reefjar, fits nicely in 5G
  4. Moved jar contents into 5G Cube (Yay - Cube Reef!)
  5. Re Done scape for Reefjar with 16mm drainage pipe, cable ties and dead coral. Need milliputting and making look like rock
  6. Once I motivate myself to go to the Office I can see what mini pumps I have that might work to replace the airstone

New Scape in the Works

Ive been looking at that one, Charterhouse stock them. Ideally Im looking for something with a removable gooseneck like a Kessil but smaller and cheaper! The lid for my 2 gallon has cost me a fortune, and I bet I get hit with customs charges too.

I'll ask him about the tmc now.

Cheers

I've swapped the lights over. Have a A80 running 80% on the jar.

 

The 360We is on my 5G at like 5%
