    Boy...do I feel like a noob

    Thank you Lawn. I'm getting excited looking through all these threads. Feels good to be somewhat back I see. I see. Might as well. LS isn't that much I guess Thanks for the replies

    Not sure how much the hobby has changed. It's been a while. I think the LR might be ok with a new water dip. I would imagine. I've heard of people having LR in their garage (dry) and when they put it back in it comes to life after a few weeks of cycling. Thanks for the input. I'm definitely looking into all my options.

    Thanks for responding. Remove water and sand meaning get a brand new bag of livesand?
  4. Hello all. I'm somewhat of a veteran in this site. I've been MIA for a few years and I'm ready to start a little project. Not a big project, but something small to get back into the reefing scene. I sure feel like a noob because when I was here with my tanks MH was the thing. Apparently there are new systems out there that make the MH obsolete. LED is the new thing...I guess. Well I have a few questions for the vets here. This is my situation. I have a fairly new (bought it brand new) JBJ 28g Nano Cube. The one that came stock with 150W MH. Well I set up the tank a few years ago and didn't really do much. Kept a pair of clowns only. Well the 2 power pumps went out. The light went out (I think the ballast stopped working). I let it go. Well I have a tank sitting in my dinning room with about 20 gallons of uncirculated salt water, and a bunch of nice looking LR and sand. I'm sure everything is absolutely dead in there. My question for you is, Can I buy new power pumps, connect and start a cycle again? Do I need to completely remove the old water in there? I know the rock will cycle and become LR again. But what about the water? I know my parameters are going to be off the charts but I understand the cycle process. I will also be buying a new hang on LED light. I don't want that MH in the hood thing. I like the open top better. Any info and advise will be greatly appreciated.
  5. I see I see. Interesting. I might want to do a clam and an anemone in a near future. So I might have to get the other Kessil light then. I'm more of a softie and LPS coral type of guy. I had SPS many years ago and didn't have much luck with it.
  6. Oh man, Seabass. What's up. Thanks for the welcome. I remember interacting with you quite a bit back in the days.
  7. Thanks for the input. I will look into both Kessils. The money isn't really an issue. It's a matter of wanting to do it correct. I remember when I started the hobby many many years ago I bought everything underpowered. So I ended up buying everything (almost everything) all over again. Was way more expensive that way.

    Happy 13th Birthday Nano-Reef.com!

    WOW! 13 years. I've been on this site for 10 years going on 11. Time sure flies.
  9. WOW! How the hobby has changed. I've been missing in action for a couple of years. Been reefing for about 11 years but was gone from the hobby for about 4 years now. Well...I got the reef virus. I want to start again. I have a 28g Nano Cube that I'm going to start up. I want to remove that 150W MH hood. I want to hang an LED light fixture. I'm thinking of a Kessil 150. But I really need to do some research because so much has change in the hobby. Feels good to be somewhat back. Even though I'm in the begging stages of the hobby, or already feels good.
  10. Well as you can see I have been a member here since 2004. I have kept a few tanks and then I stopped the hobby. Well I've had a 28g Nano Cube with 150MH cycling forever. To the point that is collecting dust. Now I'm getting the hobby/reef blues. I want to start again. But...I want to gut that light out. I want to remove it and get an LED type of fixture. I'm thinking of a Kessil 150. Sky Blue. Anyone has any experience with these light over a Nano Cube tank? Any info will be greatly appreciated. Feels good to be back. Even though I'm just in the begging stage. Feel like a noob all over again.

    Kongor's 75 gallon reef

    Question. Is the plumbing going into the basement? Very nice tank by the way.

    Aquaclear 70 Or 110

    I used a AC70 on my 20 many years ago and had great success. The 110 might be a little over kill.

    WOW! I've known Jer for years and this touches home. I never met the man in person but for some reason when you have a tight community like this it touches everyone. Well R.I.P Jerem, you will be missed.
