  1. I have an old Tunze 9002 skimmer that's collecting dust. I'd like to pass it on to someone that will use it. The previous owner before me had repaired it where the magnet attaches to the body (see photos). It hasn't run for a few years, but I remember it working quite well. $40 shipping priority mail anywhere in the US.
  2. I'll disagree with. I have the Ca checker and it's spot on. If you follow the instructions that Hanna provides in , you'll have great results. Tips: Make sure your RO/DI water has 0 TDS Make sure you know how to measure a meniscus properly (see video link above) Make sure you watch the video Hanna Checkers are awesome. Worth the investment, IMO.
  3. Woah, 28 LEDs over a BioCube with no dimmers? I'm running 24 over my BC29 with SPS, LPS, and softies ... and have never run it past about 30%. You could fry your coral if you're not careful.
  4. I couldn't put enough cash together to order the first time -- but I would jump all over this and assume all risk involved $7 rics and $5 flat rate shipping? Boom! Let me know if you do this.
  5. For what it's worth, it seems like Hanna Instruments is listening to the complains people are having about their Calcium checker. The posted a video demonstration with some tips for getting accurate results on Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Hanna-Instruments-Ha...checker+calcium I actually picked one up today, because I love my Hanna Alk and Phosphate checkers.
  6. If these were bright polyps and healthy ... I'd be down. Count me in for 10. I can send you a heat pack to include with the Priority Mail shipping to ensure they get to Michigan safely. By the way - does come with any sort of substrate in their "foot" so we can superglue?
  7. All of the above should survive just fine with PCs.
  8. I used to I love Bonsai but I live in Michigan, which proves to be a challenging environment for them.
  9. Thank you, Weetabix I shot these with my budget macro setup on my DSLR. I have a 50mm Prime lens that I simply mounted backward using a reverse mounting ring (you can pick them up on eBay for about $3). It's a Canon T3i ... but the same shots can be had with virtually any DSLR using the method I posted above. Thanks!
