Yikes!! I hate breaking tanks. Tried to drill a tempered one once, that was quite the shock.

Cool deal on the Cor 20! I'd be curious to hear how that's working for you once you've had it for a little bit. I plan on redundant pumps for my 135 and the neptune pumps are high on my list for the second one.

The tank looks great!!!
Whiskey
Thank you Whiskey. It is just over 3 years old now and certainly has had its ups and downs.
So far no complaints about the Cor 20 pump. Super quiet for sure.

Glad to hear the mishaps were small, and your reef is going strong. Glad'er you see you dropping in, and hearing all is well.

Yeah, we's got one humdinger of a groovy revamp around here.....not heard many complaints, just thumbs up.

It is great looking the new site. Works good on my cell unlike the old one.

The reef is very strong despite my mishaps.
I was slacking on water changes but getting back into good habits of weekly for about 2 months now. It is definitely showing it likes the weekly changes.

Noise level was one of my biggest questions! I put allot of effort into making sure my tank is dead silent and I live in a quiet area so that's quite the trick. How long have you had the pump now? Does it fire up every time you turn it off?

Whiskey
I have had the pump about 1.5 months now. Always fires back up after water changes. If I didn't see the water coming out of the return I would never know it was running when I first turn it on.

Also running reduced power of 18% or even 100% the noise doesn't change from what I notice.

If'n you haven't yet, from the 3-dots next to your profile select 'NIGHT MODE' way cool!

I'm a wee bit off schedule for tank 'deep cleaning' and a water change myself......got in a lazy mood/busy mode lately.

It is easy to get off track. Life gets in the way.

The night mode is pretty sweet looking on here.

That's awesome!!!! You don't hear of those breading in the tank very often!! Congrats!

Trochus snails are one of my favorite for this reason, I have good luck with them breading.

Whiskey
Now I am assuming they are nassarius since they have the same shape and long "nose" part like the nassarius do. Plus I don't have any other kind of snail like that in my tank.

I was trying to get a video or photo of them but no luck. They are tiny. About 1/4" long right now.

I guess I can grab one up and put into container with some tank water to get a better picture and video.

No doubt!

Speaking of which, I caught my Trochus snails spawning over the weekend. Not nearly as rare, but super cool to see!

Whiskey
That is pretty cool.

I never saw my snails do any spawning so to speak. I have never been around to witness anything like that in my tank while standing there. I always seem to miss the cool things like that.

It's been awhile since posting on here. Between work and the 2 kids it keeping me busy.

The tank overall is doing well. I have lost a few fish. Not sure what caused it.

Purple Natural environment Botany Plant Organism
Water Purple Lighting Pet supply World

Water Purple Underwater Fluid Marine invertebrates


Coral is definitely growing and looking good.

Thanks Vinnie, Hack and Whiskey.

Happy Father's day to yall as well.

Vinnie that cap has really started to grow like that in the past year. It is starting to grow over rhe overflow and back glass now.

Hack I love GSP. It certainly has been awhile.

Whiskey the tank is just over 4 years old now.

Since I have off today for Juneteenth I might head to the LFS and buy something. I can't remember the last time I bought anything other than quick stop in for fish food.

Sounds like a perfect thing to do with a day off! Don't forget pics when you get back :)

Whiskey
Well I never made it there. Took longer than expected to repair a broken toilet flange and I got called into work for a few hours this afternoon.
