    Fluval Flex 9-Diving back in

    Forgot to explain the random jug picture. Waterproof cereal container from target, aka ato reservoir. They're kinda proud of it at 14 bucks, but it does work perfect and it was there when I happened to be thinking about the need. Lol

    Fluval Flex 9-Diving back in

    So things seem to be running well so far. Clean up crew arrived from reef cleaners. Always more than expected, so, sweet! With that being said, trying to keep snails off the floor has been fun. So cut a frame for a lid today and netting is on the way from BRS. Skimmers chugging along. Added a couple fish, cleaner shrimp and emerald crab as well. Also tossed in a couple sexy shrimp. Also got this super small red star today. Hopefully have time to work on a 9 gallon stand soon. Will keep posted.

    With how quickly this thing has been losing water, ato was a must. So I picked up a smart ATO today.

    So, first $10 China skimmer showed up cracked and too big too fit... so they offered to ship me a new one and keep the old one. So...now it fits. Loo

    So far I'm loving it and the adjustability of it. Doing a large water change and starting the cycle today. I will keep this thread posted.

    Thanks! Cant wait to get the new light here and kick off the cycle on this one. Wanted to give the rock wall a few days to off-gas just in case before I drained and filled again and added cycle booster.

    Well it's been awhile after some circumstances led to my last tank "disappearing", but starting up again. Got a fluval flex 9 with a hydor 425. Running a cobalt 1200 for return pump. Eheim 25 watt heater. Running a small hob refugium using the stock fluval pump to feed the hob. Picked up a used AI prime HD that will be here soon. Made a little rock wall for the back. Will post updates as I go.

    5 Gallon Bucket Sump DIY! Yes, a Bucket sump!

    Chambers in the bucket is genius.... now Im going to have to do this. Clear 5 gallon buckets are available as well. And quick release fittings sure would make the change easy.

    Pretty sweet! I wonder if you could use it as a fuge if you tossed some waterproof leds in there.

    Powerhead for Biocube 32?

    Probably just shy. Mine will try and eat out of my hand while I melt down frozen food in front of the power heads.

    New Biocube 32

    Yeah, a little heavy on the stock, but knock on wood, levels are staying where they need to be, but also diligent about weekly water changes. I left for a week and the gf didnt do the waterchange and things got ugly for a second, but overall, not bad. Corals are all doing well. Goniopora, small acan, and one of the zoas were added only about a week ago. The green goniopora wasnt too hot when I got it (lfs gave me a deal on it) but it seems to be doing better. Also forgot to mention the gsp I just added to my back wall. It was happy until I glued it to a magnet and moved it. We will see.

    New Biocube 32

    Ive got 2 acans low on the left. Zoas above that, christmas favia around the side from there, torch on the bottom right, a few different groups of zoas up from there, a pink and a green goniopora towards the top. As for fish, I know people are going to bitch at me, but whatever, everyones happy in the tank and I have escape plans for my tangs when they get larger, but, tons of snails and hermits because I ordered a cuc from reefcleaners and added some extras, 2 clowns, a fire fish, 6 line wrasse, small yellow tang and small powder blue. (Sits back and waits for the roasting posts to begin)
