  1. Selling my ~5 year old ReefKeeper Lite Plus +Net. Great working condition and very clean. Unfortunately, I damaged the PH probe while tearing down the tank so there is no PH probe included. I used it to control my ATO and as such I can throw in the float switch plus some additional wires that have the correct connector in case you would like to as well. $175 shipped.
  2. Reducing price to $200 shipped!
  3. I'm selling my JBJ Nano Cube LED Pro 89W hood and ballast for $230 + $30 shipping. It's in like-new condition with no defects, everything is in perfect working condition. It has around 5 months of use on it. Details: - Day light: 25x3W. Color 14K. Current 700mA. Lumens 120m each - Dawn dusk: 4x3W. Color 466nm. Current 700 mA. Lumens 33m each - Moon: 2x1W. Color 456nm. Current 350 mA. Lumens 15m each - 4 Cooling Fans (3000 RPM each fan) integrated into the hood - Includes ballast - NOTE: Designed to fit the 24 gallon Nano Cube Deluxe as well They go for new around $380 on JBJ's site. I'm in Washington DC if you're interested in a local pickup, otherwise, I'm willing to ship inside the US and Canada. Ballast is a little heavy so that's why I'm guessing $30 for shipping. PM for paypal info.
  4. You may actually want to wait until you make the decision about that new house. Moving a tank, especially something larger than an 8 gallon can be very stressful and risky to the livestock as well.
  5. JBJ 30g Rimless AIO, need opinions

    Anyone have a follow up for this? I'm curious how this tank is working out for people.
  6. BRS reef saver vs. reefrocks.net rocks

    Reef saver was great for me, and you generally can't go wrong with BRS.
  7. 28G JBJ Nano Cube LED as a reef tank?

    Love my 28G, although I now run a Radion on it and nearly none of the stock components.

  9. Soda Lime and its effects on PH and Alk

    PH is one of the few params that's able to be monitored continually via controllers - I guess I just overreacted to seeing the PH decrease like it did in the late fall. Thanks for the advice, tank definitely isn't as sensitive to PH swings as it is to Alk. I guess it's time to abandon the PH chase.
  10. I'm having trouble understanding the relationship between PH and Alk when running Soda Lime (via skimmer air intake) and I'm hoping someone might be able to shed some light on this for me. When running Soda Lime through Skimmer air intake: Alk: ~109ppm! (6.1 dKH) PH: Daily swings ~8.2 to ~8.4 Without Soda Lime: Alk: ~145ppm (8 dKH) PH with room air via skimmer: Daily swings ~7.8 to ~8.1 I've been able to replicate this behavior a few times now over the course of a few weeks - as the PH levels rise the alk slowly decreases. Backstory: I live in a pretty well sealed up apartment and during winter I saw my PH pretty rapidly decrease when the windows were shut all day. So, I started chasing PH and I've found running soda lime through my skimmers air intake worked wonderfully for raising PH; however, at the cost of severely lowering my alk. I've tried increasing the alk portion of BRS 2-part dosing (recipe 1, soda ash) to try to to compensate and this had little effect. I was assuming that the BRS recipe 2 (intended for use for PH 8.3 or higher) was optional - am I thinking about this wrong? Is this a strict requirement, as in recipe 1 is ineffective at PH levels above 8.3? Everything else: Mag: ~1450ppm Ca: ~430 - 450ppm Amm, NO2, NO3: 0 PO4: 0.03 - 0.06ppm Salt: Reef Crystals, 10% change weekly BRS 2-part: Recipe 1 (Soda Ash & Calcium Chloride) Water: RO/DI, BRS 4 stage, 0.00ppm TDS SG: 1.025 mini refugium on reverse light schedule, 10 hours, basically a ball of cheato Chemi-pure Elite, Purigen Age: 7 months Caribsea arga-alive + live rock PH & alk levels have been verified by multiple test kits, mix of Hanna & Salifert for others
  11. JBJ 28 LED - Modifications

    Looking good - I've been thinking about doing something very similar with my own hood. Just curious, any idea if it's possible to simply replace some of the stock white LEDs with CREE royal blues in the hood - that is literally unsolder a white LED and wire in a CREE? Or is this just simply not possible? I say this with very little actual knowledge of how these LEDs work - on the surface it seems like it might be feasible to replace some of the stock 3W LEDs with 3W CREEs. If not, I'm guessing it might be cheaper just to find a used 24G / 28G JBJ hood and gut that and sell the expensive LED hood rather than gut it.
  12. My JBJ 28 LED experience

    Looking good! I have a nearly identical setup, 3 months in (no Vortech... yet). It looks like coralline algae really took off on the back of your tank in the 7th or 8th picture - how old was the tank? Have you noticed your corals fading at all?
  13. Reduced the price - $150 for both the hood & ballast. Light only has about 10 hours on it, practically brand new.
  14. I'm selling my 150W HQI JBJ 28G hood and ballast for $150. It's basically in new condition; it's never seen salt and only has around 10 hours on the stock bulb from testing for water leaks. Details: - 150 Watt/14K Metal Halide Lighting with Remote Ballast. - 4 Blue Nite-Vu LED's positoned on all 4 corners for an even light dispersion with its own remote ballast for timer usage. - 4 Cooling Fans (3000 RPM each fan) integrated into the hood. - Integrated Thermal Protection Chip that automatically shuts the HQI lighting OFF as an added safety feature if the fans were to fail. - NOTE: Designed to fit the 24 gallon Nano Cube Deluxe as well. They go for new around $260 on JBJ's site. I'm in Northern VA if you're interested in a local pickup.
