  1. i have the icecap and it works great. i had microbubbles for one day, and i can tune it easy enough. the only thing i don't like is you cant use the magnetic mount that comes with it. it just sits in the chamber and can move around a little bit. i have mine in chamber 2 on the right side.
  2. @dvs_evo13 used to be an evo 13.5, but not I have a IM 25 lagoon
  3. yes. i had a acan colony that came to me as one live head surrounded by dead skeleton. i cut off some of the outer ones, but left the dead skeleton near the head. it regrew over them and looks great now.
  4. wish i had your carpentry skills. great looking stand!
  5. i think we can all agree, that without a better picture, none of us can be sure. i've seen really big copepods, and most amphipods have an arched back structure... but we're all just guessing what these blurry smudges are. lets get a better photo OP.
  6. they're copepods. they're a sign that your tank is in good health. you want to keep them. some fish will eat them. free fish food.
  7. Heres my tank. I started dosing after finding out my Calcium had dropped to 250 and now everything is growing like weeds. i love it. SPS is taking off and my montipora caps have all gained their color back!
  8. what size mighty jet do you have?
  9. ive done the vinegar solution like you mentioned, ive also used the white glue method where you put glue on the bristles, let it dry, and then peel it off. i always keep a box of gloves next to the tank if i have to move something. its much easier.
  10. interesting. typically IM phases out their old products right before they launch something new and improved. I love my lagoon 25 so i wouldn't worry about your purchase. that being said, if you want to wait, i bet you have time to cancel your order and wait to see what happens.
  11. My tailspot thinks hes a clownfish and schools around with them. its pretty hilarious.
  12. its been running since friday and i have to say, i really like it. While breaking it in i had a period of micro bubbles in the tank, but that went away after about a day. Its not exactly a quiet skimmer, but its not loud either. i wouldn't want it next to my bed, but when our tv is on in our living room i cant hear the skimmer over the TV. i have dialed it in and its pulling dark skim, not pasty, but still darker than the tea colored water more skimmers pull. The skimmer is kind of a tight fit, the magnetic mount doesn't fit the chamber though. thats my only real complaint.
