  1. Hmm, our community disease treatment guru @Humblefish might have some insight for you @billdeluz.
  2. Mind blowing as always @Lawnman! โค๏ธ Have any of the maxi minis crowded out any of your other coral yet?
  3. You're doing great so far ched03! ๐Ÿ‘ Good choice of equipment, and your rock and sand foundation. I'm fond of the Fiji Pink Araga-live sand, it will seed your tank with a lot of great life. It looks like you're right in the middle of the cycle now, another week or two and you should be ready for your first additions! What kinds of coral are you hoping to keep in your nano reef?
  4. Are you just seeing a better response when you use that instead of synthetic? Is it Catalina filtered seawater? I started my pico reef with their filtered seawater water and recently switched to pre-mixed Oceanic that is 25 cents less per gallon. I'm seeing a good response to Oceanic with my coral, but I didn't really have the Catalina water in use long enough to compare, just the first month or so. There's a shop close by that gets a tanker truck of Catalina water delivered every so often.
  5. Hi @DBladen! That's a handsome looking built in aquarium, is there any room on the side or rear to run the lines for the canister filter below? Definitely a tight squeeze! Seeding biological media in the filter with your existing tank is a good idea, I can't see any harm in that plan. Definitely start an aquarium journal for the project, this will be neat to see. I always love watching unique shaped tanks transform into reefs.
  6. I hope everyone has been enjoying the new website speed improvements today after our server change last night, thanks for your patience while we worked out the issue. Please let me know if you notice any other issues or errors as you browse the site this week. ๐Ÿ‘
  7. Welcome to the community @Ummwhy! ๐Ÿ‘‹ You're off to a great start with your BioCube nano reef, lots of cool mods already it sounds like. Great aquascape, you'll have lots of nice places for mounting coral. This sounds interesting, I'll have to look that one up. What do you use it for most? Looking forward to seeing your future projects!
  8. Does it mostly happen after feeding, or do you think the clownfish is trying to host the duncan coral like an anemone? There might not be any way to discourage it unfortunately, but you might try moving the duncan coral to a different area of the tank if you're able to.
  9. Some vendors are able to hold your livestock purchases for bagging until later in the day, but not always. As long as your coral frags and inverts are bagged well, they should be fine packed into an insulated cooler, much like how an online order would be shipped to you. Since you'll be indoors most of the time, the temperatures will stay stable and warm enough without further intervention.
  10. That should work out just fine! Pretty much any container will do, as long as it can hold water.
  11. Cool time lapse video! As far as quality when uploading to YouTube, check your phoneโ€™s export settings and make sure itโ€™s uploading 1080i or p video quality. Also be sure to upload over WiFi rather than a mobile network.
  12. Woohoo! ๐Ÿ‘ Share some ideas if you need any help deciding ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. There will be a brief period of downtime tonight starting at 1AM EST (2 hours from now) while we migrate to a new server, this should resolve any further issues that we were seeing yesterday. Thank you for your understanding! โค๏ธ

    Cool shot! My vote is favia ๐Ÿ™‚
  15. Wow @Lorenz725, this is a really unique system and aquascape, I'm looking forward to seeing this one grow fill out! One of the coolest uses of a drop-off tank layout I've seen yet! ๐Ÿ‘
