Yea the glass holes is probably a little cheaper but I don't really know how it would work out with the herbie overflow. You would either have to make another hole, which probably wouldn't work right because theirs is centered, or make some kinda box on the outside.

Finally bought my ro di unit and refractometer last night. Pretty excited about that. Much easier water changes and top offs for me now. I'm selling a few things on eBay right now. So hopefully I will be ordering a few things in a couple days. Next things on the list are a skimmer and reefkeeper with ato. Hopefully I'll be getting my stand this week too, so I can set up my sump. I think I'm going to go ahead and move my dsb to my sump Sunday, cause that's going to cause another cycle. I should be fine with the display tank and live rock. I'm just not really too happy having a dsb in the display any more. I figure I can have it in sump for biodiversity and start running biopellets for denitrification. Plus it will make vacuuming the display much easier.

Just bought my Reef Octopus!!! As you can see I'm pretty pumped about it. I got a used NWB-110 off eBay for $149.49 shipped. Not the best deal in the world but he said he only used it for six months, and it is the newer model with the red and water lines. So it can't be that old. I'll probably buy a bubble blaster for it in a few months. Now I'm just waiting to get paid for some things I sold on eBay. Then I'll be ordering my reefkeeper with ATO. Marine depot has the reefkeeper lite with the sl1 and ph probe for $190. Can't really beat that. I kinda wanted the apex jr so I can control it with my phone, but I can just get that later for the reefkeeper.

Oh no that won't be for a long time. I meant I'm going to get the bubble blaster pump for it. I just wanted something for now but didn't want to spend the $285 for the sro. I can get the bb for $145. So that only puts me at $295 for a Super Reef Octopus. So I'll have a spare pump for ten bucks, and spread my payment out. At least that's how I looked at it.

Ok. What is up with this skimmer? If I run it normal, it like chugs. It's almost air locked. So I threw some cotton balls in the silencer, to restrict the air flow a little bit, and it skims like a champ. What could the problem be? There isn't anything restricting the water flow.

How's that slimmer treating you? Ever find the cause of the chugging?

Its running great. I dont really know what was going on but i took the cotton balls out the next day and it was working fine. I got my reefkeeper the other day. But it freaking sux cause it didnt come with a bus cable for the module to run my ato. Pretty dissapointed about that. But ive got my heater and a fan on it. Im running the ato on a timer since i cant use my float switch till i get that cable. That thing is super nice though.

maybe it was just breaking into your tank? glad it worked out.

pardon the ignorant question, how far along is your tank now?
