Looks great Whiskey! They are right, your cabinets are top notch. Really looking forward to this thread.
Thank you!! I literally learned woodworking because of reef tanks. Back in 2001 you couldn't really get stands that allowed you enough room for big skimmers and sumps underneath. I had a neighbor that was a cabinet maker and he taught me how to do some woodworking on the sidewalk outside my apartment. Every stand and cabinet I try and take at least one thing to the next level. I've come a long way since the first plywood box that held up my 29 gallon!Looks really good. You have a way with wood . I never was really good at it. Mainly because I don’t plan things out. Lol
When I did my 150 back in Kansas and my neighbor came to help and ask me where are my plans , told him in my head. He laughed and made me draw up plans. It did come out nice , my VHO’s were on rails that pulled out to change bulbs. .
That's a good idea! I might do that when I fill up the 300 actually.
That's true. I'll dose Nitrate no problem, but I don't have a good way to dose Phosphate at this moment. Hopefully stirring up the sand and feeding reef roids will do that for me lol.It was a simple deduction. I don’t know why people aren’t doing it. I have never added to a system so haven’t faced it. Seems quite logical you match salinity and temperature why not nutrient level. If system is high or low the nutrient level in the added system section could be increased or decreased to give you the level you want in the total system.
Those ones work a little different than the bottom paint mounted air one, and now airless that I have for interior paint. I've never used one in that style, it's more like an airbrush I would assume, probably way better for detail stuff.I use an air compressor driven paint gun from Harbor Freight. Even worked to paint the new bumper and fender when my mom wrecked the Sebring. Not a perfect job as it was my first automotive attempt but much better than the black primer it came with and much cheaper than a shop.
I have used Gyree pumps, in fact I have 1 in my Frag Tank, and one in my main tank. I really like them, and I'm excited to try out two with the new Hydros Wave Engine I picked up on black Friday. I'm just hoping that the 3/4" glass will work with the magnets they have. I know 1/2 inch will, because that's what they are on now.On the light all you can do is set it up and test.
Have you used gyres before? If not I think you will like them.
