  1. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    Thanks! Perhaps at some point I'll need that upgrade! I can see this thing filling up quick.
  2. Canadian members thread

    I'm in Merritt, BC. I haven't noticed enough West coast reefers! Out of curiosity, has anyone ordered coral from Incredible Aquariums? I've looked on their site a few times, but I was hesitant to order because I didn't know of anyone who had ordered from them before.
  3. Fishfreak's foxy BC29: ROD/DI arrived

    I used tap water for the first 2.5 years, but something changed not long ago. I have no LFS near me, so every water change was costing $8 in distilled water! This is gonna be nice.
  4. Flatland's Pico Contest Tank

    Love your vase! And the distortion doesn't seem to be too bad. The scape is nice, it fits the vase well. Enjoy your vacation!
  5. SaltyBuddha's Floating Islands Pico

    I love this idea!! I can't wait to see how it turns out! GSP is a favorite of mine. And your cat
  6. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    Thanks, I'm kind of nervous for such a tiny volume. I put 1.5L of water into the tank, and google said that was just shy of 1/3 of a gallon! Yeesh! Had I realized how much water the rocks and sand would displace, I probably would have chosen a larger container! Ah well, I'll figure it out. I think the only real issue I may have is evaporation. And the fact that my heater is effing huge! Seriously, it's as tall as the pot!
  7. Fishfreak's foxy BC29: ROD/DI arrived

    I'm so excited to have access to water 24/7! Now I can do water changes everyday if I feel like it (though I can't see that happening haha).
  8. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    I put in 5 types of macro, a little snail, a few asterinas, and a few mini feather dusters. If they fare alright over the weekend I'll probably add a blue leg hermit. I'm gonna need to figure out how to take decent pictures of this thing! PA201347 by orb1915, on Flickr Left PA201349 by orb1915, on Flickr Right PA201350 by orb1915, on Flickr
  9. Fishfreak's foxy BC29: ROD/DI arrived

    At last, I've got an RO/DI! PA201335 by orb1915, on Flickr I also got some more epoxy, because I seem to go through the stuff pretty quick PA201337 by orb1915, on Flickr The RO/DI was packaged very well PA201338 by orb1915, on Flickr PA201339 by orb1915, on Flickr The white spot anemone shrimp evicted Jacob from the RFA! It used to be big enough to share, but it has shrunk considerably with the lack of light I'm quite frustrated with the whole light thing. Why won't the power supply just get here already?! I have no idea where it's at. PA201341 by orb1915, on Flickr
  10. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    The bulb was actually a bit larger than I was expecting. Still small though PA201330 by orb1915, on Flickr It's temporarily in this fixture. And holy heck it's bright! PA201331 by orb1915, on Flickr I decided to see what it would look like coming from the top. I really like the color! PA201332 by orb1915, on Flickr And here you can see the really chunky heater. But it shut off on its own, so I'm happy! The picture is only slightly bluer than in real life. PA201333 by orb1915, on Flickr
  11. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    I see life! A little pod is crawling around. This hobby has taught me a little with patience, but not enough to keep me from chucking some stuff in today! I'll probably add some micro fauna, coralline shavings, and maybe macro this afternoon. Once I get the light socket I'll probably put in some GSP to be my test subject as I figure out the brightness.
  12. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    Well that wouldn't really be using the coffee machine, more so just hiding an ATO behind it. We'll see! Really, I'm hoping that evaporation is minimal enough to not need an ATO at all. I'm hoping for this to be as simple as possible.
  13. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    Thanks! I was pretty shocked to see how different it looked with water. The rocks look huge! It's definitely too late for the heating part, seeing as how I chopped off the machine's cord first thing haha. I'm waiting to see what evaporation is like, but I was thinking I could potentially try to hide a hamster bottle ATO in the back, it's pretty spacious!
  14. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    Oh yah, with sand and rocks, there's only 0.3 gallons of water!
  15. Fishfreak's C.C. pico: it's wet!

    It's wet! I used reef welder to make a bit of a scape (which I partially broke ) and then added a little sand and water from my other tank. PA191320 by orb1915, on Flickr PA191324 by orb1915, on Flickr Note the fabulous lid! I'll find something better eventually. I also need to remove the suction cup from the heater, get clear airline tubing, and drill a hole in the machine for the cords. Although I'm not finding it too bad just having them hang out the side.
