    We put the hood up and ran the T5s last night, tonight they're both running, w00t!

    I had one of them detonate on me, the ones that had too much charge. Didn't know it at the time, but the attorneys are licking their chops now. Caused me to have sinus surgery to the tune of $5000 out of my pocket, bastards.

    And shit will break at the most inopportune time. Once the washer and dryer shit the bed the day after Xmas. Then in the spring the fridge went tits up. Pick a room and do it up one a year. We did it that way and you're not strapped for cash.

    OK, the T5s are installed and tested, the LEDs are installed and tested, gonna try to get the hood up tomorrow if the stars and planets align.

    Same here. I can ALWAYS count on the goddamn things if I order anything in from Australia. This started growing on one of the rocks from the IM20 tank that's been in the dark for, what, 4 months? I dunno, some of this shit just boggles my mind.

    I have the same thing going on in the new 80. The upside is that the stupid Fiji Sailfin eats the shit, WTFMAN.jpeg.

    I have to drill another hole or enlarge the one that's there for the T5 holders to go through. That's today's job and start work on my stand, my tank will be here Friday. The second picture is a sponge that grew out of some Indo rock I got about 6 months ago. It's really cool to see things just pop up out of nowhere and take off growing. Indo isn't allowed to ship corals on rock, but I've had all kinds of stuff come in, Anthelia, tiny leather corals, Porites, Acros and teeny tiny Fungia corals come in on rock. Opening a box of fresh collected rock is like Christmas, you never know what you'll get. There's also all sorts of crabs, shrimp, feather dusters and worms that come in. Stripey is a stone cold killer when it comes to bad critters. He's relentless when it comes to searching out stuff on rock.

  9. Yep, I have 10 more boxes coming this week and 8 of them are already sold. I love Walt Smith's livestock, just not the live rock from there. The dried slab and branch are fine, the Pukani is loaded with sponges and if you don't clean them, you're in for a VERY BAD start of your reef tank. I steer new reefers away from it just for that reason. The Caribbean live rock is sold stuff too. I've seen gobs of dead Sea Spiders in the bottom of Pukani boat rock boxes. We need to figure out what it is and what it's eating. Some are harmless sponge eaters and others feed on corals. If it's a sponge eater, no need to worry, kill it when you can. If it's a coral eater, we need to mobilize, send in The Rangers and exterminate with EXTREME prejudice. I've used this trick a few times, if you're sensitive to killing things, time to stop reading NOW. Take all the good stuff off that rock and put it in a large bag in a dark place, sealed, for a few hours, up to 24 is OK. Try to support it so stuff that falls out stays out, use a frag rack with something to support the rock off the surface a few inches. I'll show you why 24 hours is OK in my thread later tonight. A few months ago something really cool started growing out of one of the rocks I got in from Indonesia.
  10. That looks like wild collected Fiji live rock. Have I ever told you why I don't use Fiji live rock unless it's dried? Sea Spiders, the stuff is alive with the damn things, not so for Indo live rock. There are aquatic etymology boards that might help with an ID and what it feeds on. They generally don't stray too far from the rock they're on, especially if their preferred food source is there. Get a red flashlight to aid in night hunting and a good pair of tweezers.

    You mean a goddamn train wreck like mine, except I paid $100k for mine, lol. I'm not asking and you don't have to tell.

    The T5 bulbs and ballasts have arrived, if I get back home at a decent hour tomorrow I'll install the T5s and we'll get the hood installed. I also finished the ATS and as soon as the plumbing dries I'll put them online. Been a busy end to the week with court and dealing with all of that mess.
