    I may just go ahead and rent the par meter during Christmas break. Really don't to buy a meter of any kind. It's a one time use for me. Thanks for all the information guys. It's very helpful.

    Lux meter

    So I just read the lux with my phone lux app. At the waters surface it reads between 30K to 31K. I need to do some reading to find out what these mean. \

    Lux meter

    Thanks. I'm gonna look into the lux app for my phone just to mess with it and get some idea of what my lighting is. If you look at my signature you will see that my diy lighting is probably a bit over kill. 86 3watt leds is a lot.

    I think I may do what you did and rent the par meter. I have some time off during the Christmas holiday that I can mess with my lighting. Some of my corals are starting to bleach and I'm not sure why. It's an sps / lps tank. The lps are fine . Some of the sps are slowly loosing their color. I would like to rule out the lighting as the cause.

    Where you adjusting for brightness or color ? I'm wondering if my lights are to bright. You can see my lighting in my sig. I have everything at 100%
  9. I really want to get a goby, shrimp combo. I just may not sure how much of the shrimp I will see. Seems they stay hidden most of the time. I dont want to buy the shrimp if I never see it. Could someone that has this combo let me know if I'm right or wrong about the shrimp staying hidden. Thanks.

    Thats good to know about the goby. As of now they both in the cave the the shrimp as made. I'm super happy that all seems well with them. Also thanks for the info about the target feeding for the shrimp,I was planning on doing that. Now I won't.

    Shrimp and Goby combo

    Okay. Thanks. Haven't seen the goby for a few days. Not sure if it's still alive . Also I'm not sure how they will find each other. The shrimp has now made a cave home for himself. He's not out and about.

    The shrimp is in it hole and the goby has seen him. Im not sure how to get them together.
  20. I guess it would depend on how bad you wanted a yellow eel. I don't want an eel so it would be zero. Are you selling yours and trying to get an idea of it's value ?

    Help building screen

    https://www.homedepot.com/p/Screen-Tight-5-16-in-x-48-in-White-Window-Screen-Frame-Kit-WSKIT51648/100042901 https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/clear-netting.html this is what I used to build my lid. At the big box store theres black and white screen frames. It was super easy. Got the screen from Bulk reef supply. you will need the roller as stated and the rubber string to attach the screen to the frame. You can also just buy the whole kit from BRS.

    heaters

    Took your advice and ordered another Marineland visi- therm 200w heater. When it arrives I will have two of the same brand and model .

    heaters

    What kind/brand of heater is the most used ? And how many is recommend? My heater is a 200 w marineland. Its not keeping the water as warm as I would like. Our home temp drops to 64 at night due to the programming of the thermostat . The temp drops to 70.3deg. I'm looking to get either a larger heater or a second one to help warm the water.

    Just added the new tiger tiger pistol iin the tank.Hes much bigger then the other one. Sadly I think the YWG may be dead. The next one will come from a LFS so I can see the size before I purchase it.
