    Moving Tank - Freebies

    Thanks, We love the new home and moving is stressful during the summer and in particular with this heat wave. We are trying to move a little bit each morning and evening until everything is moved. The plan was to move everything over to the new house but... I didn't order my new tank until today and found out it wont be here until mid August at the earliest. I will be downsizing the system in size and complexity to a Elos 70 Diamond.

    All fish and nems gone. Still have some snails left over if anyone wants them. If no one needs snails by tomorrow I will take the tank apart.

    **RENTAL** Apogee MQ-500 PAR Meter

    If you are in the local area of Modesto I have the newest Apogee PAR Meter for rent. This meter has a new sensor and is corrected for LED lit tanks. The rental fee is $10 for 2 days or $20 per week. Best Part - No Deposit Please give me a call or text (209) 605-7063.

    **RENTAL** Apogee MQ-500 PAR Meter

    UPDATED PRICE - NO DEPOSIT REQUIRED! For you local reefers this is a great way to measure the PAR of your tank with LEDs or without LEDs. Setup a baseline and know when to change your bulbs or what intensity to run your LEDs at.
  11. I have a year and a half old Red Sea Reefer 170 that I am practically giving away. The tank is in great shape and if you're in the Modesto area you can come by anytime to look at it. There are a few light scratches on the inside of the glass on the left pane that might be reduced with some effort but nothing major. It is missing the sump because I am using it on my current tank. All the plumbing is there and all you would need is a sump to get going. There are 2 conditions: 1. Nothing is ever free. I would require a donation of BRS Carbon. http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/bulk-premium-rox-0-8-aquarium-carbon.html You can pick any size you feel is appropriate and you don't need it on hand when you pick up the tank. You can order it and give it to me later! 2. You agree that you will use the tank and not try to resell it for a profit. I could try to sell it myself. My intent is to help out local reefers on a budget! Give me a call anytime if you want to come look at it, Jared Long (209) 605 7063

    Cpllongjk's Red Sea Reefer 170

    An Update... When viewing all these shots keep in mind what's been going on here. I slowly increased the photoperiod of the Giesemann Specta 250w radium from 4 hours daily to 8 hours daily. The Spectra was suspended with the bulb 10" off the water's surface. While going from 4 hours MH to 8 hours MH, which I did over the course of 2-3 months, the colors were great until the 8 hour period. My corals started lightening up and bleaching so slowly I didn't notice until all one day I looked and all my frags were almost stark white. Some had a bit of color but for the most part they were all bleached. I immediately raised the light a few more inches and backed off the MH schedule to 4 hours in hopes that the corals would recover more quickly. This led to recover and a brown out. The corals are still recovering from "a sunburn" and are getting more color every day. I saw a local guy posting a 4 bulb ati hybrid fixture at a great price so I decided to try it out while the corals are recovering. So far I am impressed as the ATI hybrid has extended my viewing period by use of the royal blue leds for dusk dawn and moon lighting, something I didn't have before. So without further ado... a FTS ProCorals Superman - color still returning but you can see growth on tips Schizopolis Sunset - Has growth but like all the corals still recovering. Cali Tort - This was the most unaffected coral from the bleaching because it was in a very low light part of the tank, however it still had some bleaching. Rainbow in Spain - This one lost a lot of color but has grown a lot since the beginning. Two weeks ago I added a calcium reactor. I was doing fine with dosing but I am so glad I added it. I really do feel that calcium reactors add so many things besides calcium and alkalinity to the water. I am keeping the reactor at a pH of 6.5-6.6 controlled via a apex and Aquarium Plants Carbon Doser. The reason I got the calcium reactor is that sometime very soon I am expecting a very large shipment from BattleCorals.
  22. Hello, A bit about me first. I've been in the hobby for 18 years. Started at the young age of 14 with a FOWLR. I got into reefing while in the military with a 7g minibow. My forte has always been nano tanks, if it isn't hard I don't want to do it. In fact, every time I dabbled in larger tanks or setups I lost interest or couldn't care for them the way they needed to be cared for. My last setup was at our last house, a 50g (36x18x18) with a 40g breeder sump and 40g breeder frag tank. The build had so much potential however we moved last year after my father passed away and I took a break from reefing. Ok... On to current build set up. This will take weeks/months to get water. Since this is probably my last build I'm going to make it good and not miss a beat. I'm covering all my bases before moving on. My plan is to go mostly, if not all, SPS on this tank. I my have a few LPS and softies in low light areas but mostly SPS. Coming Soon: I really would like your advice or help in designing a rockscape. I would prefer to NOT do the typical rock wall scapes. I am very fond of the BONSAI style scapes however I am not very artistic. I plan on getting 20lbs of Fiji Pink Sand for a shallow sand bed and 20-30 lbs of dry reef saver rock. I cannot decide on whether or not to keep the T5/Reefbrite setup. My wife does not like the overspill in the room. The thing that sucks is T5/Reefbrite cannot be compared to anything IMO. Still trying to decide on SALT. I've used many salt brands in the past and my favorite is ESV but it is very expensive and not worth the cost IMO. After bringing my tank home, I noticed that my return bulkhead was missing the nut on the bottom of the tank. I contacted RedSea and much to my surprise they cannot just send me a plastic nut. I guess they are sending me a whole new tank, LOL! Once I get my APEX base unit and EB8 back from Neptune Tech Support I need to figure out way to house all my electronics so they don't have the same problems in the past of salt water damage. If you have any questions or comments please leave them or message me. Happy Reefing, Jared My equipment list is as follows: Tank - Red Sea Reefer 170 (24x20x20) Skimmer - LifeReef VS2-24 w/ Jebao DC pump Return - Eheim 1260 (May have to replace depending on space in sump) Lighting - ATI Non-Dimmable Sunpower 6x24w (4 blue+, 1 purple+, and 1 coral+) Lighting Supplement - Reefbrite All Blue XHO 24" Top Off (Using Reefer 170 1.5g for the time being until I calculate my evap) Flow - Going to be using MP10WQD Heating - Eheim 150w Dosing Needs - BRS 2 Part Dosing (When the time comes) Controlling - Neptune Apex (Had to send in the base unit and eb8, not working)
