  1. I need a screen top for my innovative marine lagoon 25, what do other people have. BRS has a IM brand one but they also have the diy for half the price. Also the IM is sold out. What should I get.
  2. I would think dwarf orchids could be an option especially with the ato running down the structure
  3. Great topic, I think tanks that are scaped like this are some of the most impressive out there.
  4. My hesitation would be the requirement of taking it home over the weekend, maybe somebody else has expierence with this
  5. Thats neat, I wish I could commit to feeding nps so many nps are really beautiful and very unique!
  6. That's a great idea. How often are you feeding, everyday?
  7. If you have an eco tech, tunze(I believe), or gyre(icecap) I think the backup is well worth the expense especially if an outage happens when you aren't home to turn on airpumps etc. these backups last a long time and are safe, opposed to some diy backups. My opinion is I have hundreds to thousands worth of live stock plus the time it takes to get things established, I don't want to waste all of that just because the power went out for 12 hours when I wasn't there to baby sit the tank. But that's just me.
  8. Looks like those numbers are pretty close to their claims. I guess my only hesitation is alk of 8, I like it a little bit higher around 9 or so but that might not be that big of a deal.
  9. Is anybody here using Fritz RPM salt? Their analysis is really close to what I want in my tank and it seems like it would be more consistent than regular IO. If you are using it how do you like it?
  10. I'm the same as Steve, it works well
  11. Looks good! I would hold off on the tux urchin until you have quite a bit of algae and then add it if need be. I love mine for hair algae control but without enough food it will starve. Great equipment list I'm following along!
  12. Most recommend a 30 plus gallon tank for a typical anemone. I think you would be limited to a rock nem or something similar in a pico. Aptasia would be an exception though...
  13. Yep a 5 gallon ATO resubmit lasts me about 9-10 days. The lagoon has a lot of surface area for the tank size so there is quite a bit of evap
  14. Mine wasn't quite that dark but she wasn't yellow. I got her from LA and was disappointed when I got her. Somebody told me that (I believe) females turn more grey than males. The fish mainly stayed secluded in the rock work until it went carpet surfing this week after being in the tank for 8 months.
  15. 100% trolling
