  1. Amazing...How much are you dosing daily?

    I would totally agree with that statement. Especially since they can fit in a wide array of AIO tanks.
  3. Hypes SPS Dropoff Peninsula-New Skimmer

    Totally agree..you cant argue with the results! I was really skeptical at first but once adjusting to the lowest setting for air intake I got what you see above and no microbubbles.

    So I picked up the Tunze 9004 DC a few months back because I wanted a skimmer that could fit in one of my back chambers. I went with the DC model because I prefer dry skimmate and this model gives you the ability to tweak the foam height. I have to be honest I was underwhelmed with the build quality (too much plastic and very fragile) but I have been very impressed with its performance...

    Hey Buddy I'm not sure how I missed this build but this is one for the ages. Just an Incredible job. I love the colors and textures you put together...... you truly outdid yourself. Congrats on the TOTM it's very well deserved. Oh And thanks for the shout out

    Thanks Nola bear! So far so good! No signs of flatworms or black bugs. Im really happy the two prong attack of dipping and natural pest control has worked for me again. Im going to keep a close eye over the next few weeks and if everything remains clear Ill go back to stocking. Your right its super hard to see these guys on your coral. The only way to tell alot of times is by the damage they leave behind.

    Knowing your alkalinity levels and keeping them stable is very important when keeping sps... Go buy a test kit.

    Thanks so much Weetie. It was definitely discouraging in the beginning especially after discovering the black bugs but at this point I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just have to be a bit more patient. And if anyone else is having similar issues let me know I can detail my method more thoroughly. Thanks Mark I really appreciate it!

    Hey TJ sorry somehow I missed your reply. Well so far the dipping has went pretty well. After the first few dippings I laid off a bit because the frags didnt look too hot. In the meantime I added a frag rack and gave them some time to recover. What took me by surprise was I also discovered black bugs (they look like copepods but are darker and like to burrow inside the polyps of the acros) My initial thoughts was I should just burn all my acros and start over but ultimately decided against it. I wanted to give my best effort first and hopefully document what works as there wasnt much info on them. So I went back to my dipping regimen (every 4 days in melafix marine 20ml per 1/2 cup of tank water) This worked well but I still had a number of these pods in the tank. So I finally added a yellow coris wrasse and he made a huge difference in just a week or two. I was a bit sad to see thousands of pods reduced to almost nothing but it was worth it. I wish I remembered to take a pic of the millepora as it was almost bleached white but still had a tiny bit of PE now its gotten most of its color back despite repeated dips and abuse. I also decided to keep adding to my montipora collection as they were totally unaffected by these pests... picked up a nice appleberry. Im happy overall since I havent seen anymore black bugs and just one small flatworm in my last dip. So things are definitely looking up. The plan is to dip 1-2 a week for the next month and if I can't find any pest ill discontinue dipping and finally let these guys color back up. Im a bit amazed at their resilience as I didn't think they would be able to handle so much stress. Just in case you guys never seen a flatworm up close. Took a pic..
