    When you say the “other” light, does it mean they were exactly the same but new or upgraded version? I assume those lights came with some sort of controller so no need to play SUN GOD with your tinny subjects. Lol

    Don’t remember if I saw new toys in this or your 75 thread...... Are you overhauling this or your bigger baby?? Sounds exciting🤗

    I had a small sixline in that tank to keep pests at bay. Unfortunately (for him) he presumably “jumped”. His body wasn’t found to this day. If it sounds like a mob hit and it looks like a mob hit, it’s definitely a mob hit. Your experience with Tangs/Angel flatworm eaters give me a bit of my sanity back, as I could swear that this Pipefish wants to get on my good side and finished those f*****rs off. It’s only 14gal but I might get a couple Tangs and Angels just to make sure “flats “ never come back. 😉 ohhh and Thanks☺️

    Decided on two 15gal. containers for auto WC project. Also looking for portable RODI setup. I saw few options between $50-$65 on Amazon. Not sure if that would be sufficient enough for my needs. 15 gallons would be enough for 2-3months period for my WC needs. I really don’t do a lot of WC..... 15gal in the past 8 months or so but I feel that I might be pushing my luck. Ive finally setup one of pumps on 2nd DOS for Tropic Marin and dosing smaller frag tank. This stuff is pretty awesome to be quite honest with you. One pump, easy dosing, 2in1 solution.... it works. (Frag tank running at 7.5dkh atm) Pipefish in the frag tank is alive but in all honesty, I don’t know how🤗 It doesn’t seem to eat any of the regular dry/frozen food, there is also limited number of pods. Since its inception, this tank has been seeded just once with copepods. It seems active and not particularly skinny behind the ears. So not really sure what it feeds on? As you remember, I have treated this frag tank for flatworms and it seemed to work.... Well, not quite. Perhaps I was too conservative with dosing amount or some have survived in back chamber compartments. That was before we left for vaca. However, when we came back, flatworms were gone. Not one that I could find ....... plsease explain that to me because I just don’t get it. My wishful thinking is toying with the idea that perhaps this Pipefish, due to insufficient food source, forced itself to eat those nasty pests but I do honestly doubt it. As to the main tank, well, all is well. Corals are growing and it seems like most of them are super busy encrusting rock. Especially montis and acros. Made some rearrangements and still playing around with light and flow settings. Not by much, yet still. Might add another fish to the main display. Not sure what at the moment. Probably Pink-Streaked Wrasse. In a month or so I’ll be gone for another week or so and I am a bit more confident with my life-support system. It was flawless last time around. More later..... Ohhh added a permanent display to my Apex (cheap, never really used this fire unit from Amazon. It sucks). Now some quick pics: Two DOS setup (phone cam) Apex display (phone quickie) And some redundant tank shots

    I drive for a living. And yes, basic knowledge can save you time, $$$ and a lot of frustration. Also, maintain your vehicle, it will save you $$$ over time......,and keep you (and me) safe.

    Tried to take my dog out for a walk...... After few steps, dog turned around and went back in the house. Taking a long hot bath on my day off seems like a good plan. As a side note, always let your engine run in this kind of cold b4 your commute. Idle for 5-10 mins minimum. Also, don't turn the heat on right away, let the components warm up a bit.

    Best deal on Filter Floss?

    I haven't try them all but I had good results with this stuff. Price is about the same as intank (never tried intank floss so no idea how it compares).

    Made my own Mamajuana after coming back from vaca with freshly smuggled in yet, “broken in” local ingredients. Suppose to do miracles for softies if you catch my drift. Gonna try it later tonight.

    I can think of at least one safe-space for b!tchy flakes.

    Patbacks RSR170

    Seems like frag of a wild, tabling acro colony. I can get them very reasonably priced but I did not have much luck with the wild things.

    Long term success?

    By minimizing failure point, keep up with maintenance, follow the basic knowledge of successful reef keeping, your chances will increase dramatically. However, over time we become more ignorant and cocky which puts us in dangerous and deceiving comfort zone. That usually ends badly.
