    DIY Jawfish House

    OMG the jawfish police... My fish were never forced to live in the house, they could build their own at any time. The simple fact that they chose the artificial home says alot. The same argument could be said about the artificial reef as a whole. It is after all an alien environment. Given its limitations it is up to us as responsible hobbyist to make every effort to insure the comfort and wellness of our inhabitants. While it is ok to critique new ideas as they come along to assume the state of mind or well-being of ones fish would lay in the realm of whispering and clairvoyance. No need to feel sorry for my jawfish they are the most well tended to fish in my system. They have never been cut by the barnacle, it is in no way sharp. They also keep busy all day by rearranging the interior with pieces of coral and shell. BSJs are naturally skittish especially at feeding time with lights on. This might explain the uneasy appearance in the video.

    If he is new to the tank don't stress him by trying to recapture him. He might eventually find it.

    Its been so long but I believe I bought the black hose at HD and I ordered the fittings from Savko plastics. The dividers for the refugium are made of blue ABS, the rest of the baffles in the sump are glass.

    The Stoney Waters Experience

    I have had some enquiries about the control box so I thought I would post it here as well. The box itself is a fiberglass electrical enclosure bought on ebay. There are four sets of outlets that are individually controlled by the lighted rockers below. This allows me to turn off power to selected equipment only. There is also a spring wound timer that is connected to the fourth set of outlets. I use this to shut off the main pumps for feeding for up to an hour then restart automatically. The fifth set of outlets is controlled by one of the intermatic electronic timers. I have my refugium light and pump plugged into this set. The other three timers control power to each of the halides and the pair of t-5 actinics. My timing schedule represents a dawn to dusk effect. The lower right corner is where the controls for the ATO are located. Inside contains all the ballast for the lighting, the relays for the ATO and some transformers for the cooling fans. The control box is connected to the pendant by a 14 wire multi-conductor with disconnect. Everything has preformed flawlessly and I am pleased with the way it turned out. The only thing I would have done differently is I would have put the timers on top and the outlets underneath. Hope this explanation helps and thanks to everyone again.

    Yeah, now I have the shortest profile thread ever. I also have a similar thread on "BNARC" my local reef club. The box itself is a fiberglass electrical enclosure bought on ebay.
