  1. Fishfreak's C.C. Coffee Pot Pico: November FTS!

    So true! I may never actually see it again, but perhaps it will attach to the back of the rocks. Lots of free real estate there!

    The ball nem disappeared overnight I suspect Raymond knocked it off. Hopefully it lands somewhere where it can live a happy life.

    It was certainly a close call! The computer and power bar are now a safe distance away
  4. Upside Down Pico Reef - A very Pico Christmas!

    Awesome presents! Are any of them aquarium owners already?
  5. Fishfreak's C.C. Coffee Pot Pico: November FTS!

    Also, just a few minutes ago I picked my computer up off the floor to find it wet!!! There was a big puddle, and my computer and power bar for the pico were sitting in it! My first thought was that the coffee pot was leaking. Don't judge me, but I tasted the floor puddle. It was kind of salty. After a thorough examination of the pot, I declared it water tight. I thought maybe water was going down the heater cord, but it was dry. Same with the airline. My best guess is that I spilt during this morning's water change! Thank god the powerbar wasn't wet all over, just the bottom. I got lucky.....

    I fed rotifers Friday night, and last night I gave the shrimp (name TBD) a piece of mysis. He seems pretty happy, still chillin' on the toadstool. He used to do that sometimes in the other tank. I keep telling myself to stop sticking stuff in here, but somehow I can't help it! It's too easy to add things when I have a coral supply 5 feet away! I added a couple zoas that were drifting around my other tank, glued up some radioactives that came loose in the pot, as well as added two little plate corals. The plates are an experiment to see if they do any better in here. My tank had quite a few problems over the summer, and it killed pretty much every plate. The few survivors have been in slow decline since I also put in a teeny ball nem. I hope he heals and survives. It was on my zoa island, but on a spot that is usually under the sand. I wanted to put my rock back to normal, so I tried to chip off the piece of rock with the nem. I ended up hitting it After a painfully long amount of time, I was able to separate it from the rock with a scalpel. I can still tell what it is, so all hope is not lost! They're pretty resilient I think, I'm pretty sure I've accidentally injured it before while fragging zoas. I did a water change today. The grape caulerpa needed a good prune, it sure grows fast! Next time I'll move the trimmings to my other tank, since the emerald crab ate it all I hope to put up some pics within the next few days.

    Sponge? I have some similar stuff growing in the back of my biocube. If it is, it's harmless, unless it starts growing onto coral. But it's easy to pluck off.
  8. Les Bon Tanks Roule - Bounce Plate (click-bait)

    I don't know if I've ever read a tank thread and enjoyed it this much! Fabulous updates, the tank looks great, and B$ is the bomb!

    Still,I think a betta heater is plan A.

    I don't see too much algae! The corals look happy, and that's what really matters
  11. Fishfreak's C.C. Coffee Pot Pico: November FTS!

    Well that's a definite no-go, thanks for telling me that I'm pretty sure there's only about a 1/3 of a gallon of actual water in the pot so I think a betta heater could keep up. It's worth a shot anyways. What heater were you using?
  12. Fishfreak's C.C. Coffee Pot Pico: November FTS!

    I appreciate the brainstorming The only problem is that I would need a really small one to fit under there. I don't think the one you linked would fit, and I'm not sure a small one would give off enough heat. My house gets to upper 60's at night. But now that I've started thinking about the heater, I can't stop worrying about it getting stuck on and frying the pot! I looked at a number of coffee makers this afternoon and I can't find one without auto shutoff. I also can't find a way to bypass the auto shutoff feature. I'm considering buying an inkbird and a betta heater. Certainly not as cool as using the coffee maker's heating element, but at least I could rest easy knowing that the heater was controlled. And I think a tiny betta heater would be a lot less noticeable. Whatever happens, it likely won't be until Boxing Day. Gotta take advantage of those sales! The reason I didn't originally set up the pot with something decent was because I had planned to keep it up for only 6 months. I'm pretty sure that's the only reason my mom approved yet another tank. But it's grown on me...as long as it keeps doing well, I'm keeping it up!
  13. Fishfreak's C.C. Coffee Pot Pico: November FTS!

    Ah thanks, I didn't realize they did that. I'm wondering if it would be better to put a heat pad under the pot. I need to read more about the auto shut off thing.
  14. Fishfreak's C.C. Coffee Pot Pico: November FTS!

    I will keep reading. Perhaps if I buy another coffee maker I could pull the current one apart to see what it's like inside. An automatic shut off for which part? The coffee making part? A 4w pad would be a good back up. Before I can do anything though, I need to run it past my mom. I doubt she'd be thrilled since she keeps telling me to stop spending every pay check on fish!
