  1. my lagoon 25 after 20# liferock/boatload of corals and 20# sand i am only around 16-17 gallons sadly.
  2. nanobox duo m with bluefish mini - running the mixed reef setting turned down a bit but my sps are really high so it works for me.
  3. the mightyjet is perfect for lagoon. love it!
  4. two tanks in same house all params are same temp, ph, alk, etc. the tank i want to transfer to is finished cycling and done. has 5-10nitrates still the other tank has pretty much none. can i just pull and drop in without issues? mixed reef but only couple SPS and snails/crabs. thanks
  5. kessil to apex cable... $15 shipped
  6. not my first tank BUT the first time I have started one with 100% dead sand and dead rock and did a traditional cycle with caribsea aragalive sand/life rock.first dr. tim’s one and only fishless cycle and ammonium chloride. below is the details and using API test kits. I believe what I was reading as 2ppm NO2 (around day 9 or 10) could possibly be escalating nitrite levels past 5 (API kits are no good at that point and color is so close between 2 or 5ppm). Today is day 17 i did a 50/50 water mix of my cycled tank and cycling tank and did nitrite test SAME COLOR. also did another test 1/4 cycling tank and 3/4 cycled tank SAME COLOR. I also ran nitrite/nitrate tests on cycled tank water which is ZERO NO2/low NO3 so kits are fine. Is it possible I am in 10+ range of NO2 and stalled the cycle? NO3 is not increasing as well, but ammonia is processed quickly?What should I do? nothing? do i keep adding ammonia drops daily or just wait out nitrites dropping.25 gallon tank/16gallon actual volume - crushed corals/caribsea liferocktemp/ph/alk have remained constant. no skimmer or UV.

  7. ipsf.com - no brainer for that stuff. also their strombus snails are breeding machines.
  8. ends up it us my neotherm 100 watt heater... time to replace i guess not taking a chance it blowing.
  9. heater on outlet 2 and the pb4 clicks super loud everytime it turns it off NOT on. started doing this recently. ideas of what or why or longevity of that outlet now?thanks
  10. @pieceofreef i have my neotherm 100 in chamber 2 upright. little bit of top/dial sticks out but none heating portion.
  11. added sheet of 1/2 oak painted with gloss white to each side. screw away my friends! also wire closet shelves with L brackets and zip ties are great.FYI this is a lagoon 25 innovative marine APS stand that was no real mounting points when i was setting it up inside.
