    Same. Inspection and appraisal today. I get to leave work early!
  2. Kimber's Tank Thread - Natural Sunlight Video

    This is the part that makes me not want to rinse - it just seems sooooo wasteful. I've also thought about getting the new sand now, putting it in a tote, and rinsing it every week with old saltwater from my water changes... But then that means I'll have sand sitting in a tote in my house for a few weeks.

    I also heat up my water. I added that to my response after doing the math of celsius to fahrenheit. I do also keep a lid on my buckets (loosely) because otherwise my cat will take a drink. Maybe that has something to do with it too...
  4. Red Sea coral pro resevior

    I have been using Red Sea Coral Pro for over 3 years. I ALWAYS start mixing it up the night before. I do leave a small powerhead in the bucket to keep it mixing, sometime up to two days if I don't get to the water change right away. Sometimes I get flakes, but I attribute that to using the same buckets and powerheads to mix up my water and then letting them air dry after a rinse. Once a year or so, I rinse out the buckets and powerheads more thoroughly with hot water and vinegar. @seabass - I have NEVER had that happen with my water!! I also heat my water to about 79
  5. Problems with my Smart ATO Micro

    The water level should be kept about an inch below the baffle. The return pump chamber is the ONLY chamber you can put the sensor in for it to work properly for this tank.
  6. Wheels under tank support - smart or stupid?

    I use this as a stand for a tank on hardwood floors too. I just always put towels on the floor when I'm working in my tank.
  7. Kimber's Tank Thread - Natural Sunlight Video

    True, I have swapped tanks a few times... Trying to decide now if I should re-use my current sand (2 years old) or get new sand. And if I get new sand, should I rinse it, and how? I've never rinsed my "live" sand and always hate the first few weeks when siphoning the sand = dust cloud.
  8. New IM EXT announced

    These look really nice!! I wonder if I can convince my husband to get me a new tank to go with our new house?!?

    Bullion cube in a thermos of hot water is helping.
  10. Kimber's Tank Thread - Natural Sunlight Video

    Sorry for the lack of posting - my husband and I have been pretty busy this month! The last two weekends we spent looking at houses and we put in an offer on one Monday. Tuesday morning it was accepted! This means we'll be moving sometime in the beginning of April - which means I have two tanks to pack up and move an hour away!

    I think I might be right there with you. Sore throat started yesterday evening, this morning I am suuuuuper tired and feeling drained. I'm too new, so I haven't earned any PTO yet - if I take a day off I don't get paid. I was gonna take a half day tomorrow to go to the home inspection, but I might just take the full day if I don't feel better by tonight.

    GUYS!! I just got an email alert that there was a status change on the house we want: So either they accepted our offer or someone beat us to it... (I almost forgot to crop out the address, you all are too glitter bomb happy!)

    Grey Oatmeal @Sancho so did you give your kid a day off?
