    Soon to be new dad question?

    I have a 3 year old. She helps with water changes and puts snails back in the tank (have to lift her up since she's too short.) Has a small pico planted tank in her room since December. Doesnt stare at the lights.
  3. As soon as i seen it i tossed him in the sump.
  4. Yes, but I found it on the sand in the morning. Upside down with a decorator crab picking at it. Kinda pissed about that.
  5. It's a maxima. Not sure if it's suppose to be slightly on it's side like in the pic or if the point is suppose to be strait down. Place it in the sand bed with something hard under?

    Half the Chaeto was decaying. Not sure if it was due to lack of nutrients or issues during shipping. Getting a lot of algae growing on glace in fuge, so that's good. The mesh in the overflow was trapping air and almost cause the display to overflow twice. Ended up removing it.

    Duncans are loving the t5. Sunny D zoas are still closed. Hammer coral isn't as bushy as it used to be but all the heads are splitting. Not sure if it's because of this or a light/ flow issue. Not much flow on the one side of the tank. Have an Icecap gyre 1k coming, should help. Wish I had a par meter. Have Coral+ purple+ on for 4 hours, blue+ actenic 7 hours. Had Caulerpa but was afraid of it going sexual so replaced it with chaeto. I'll get around to a FTS eventually.

    What did you do for your reef today?

    Water change.
  9. Does it need sand for the roots, or is it fine just floating around in a fuge?

    Return bulkhead too low

    Looks fine to me. Use the line loc and you can raise up the return if you're worried about flooding the sump when the power goes out.

    So much more room for activities.

    Some sexy t5 pics I like the last one. They have a hint of blue in some spots but the camera isn't picking it up. Would like some with red though.
  13. Wonder if I could claim to be a farmer and write off everything in the tank as livestock? They do government subsidizing for this?
  14. The maintenance is the cheap part lol. Filter floss, RODI filters and salt isn't bad. It's the, "dang, that skimmer and some new lights would be nice" is what gets you. It's really not all bad compared to other hobbies. No regrets.
