I'll just stand here in front of my 5k setup... I still haven't let anyone other than my current gf know what it cost, LOL.

Dude...I feel your pain, but it can get so much worse. It is a money pit. The size of the hole is all you have control over. But life is short and itís better than a drug problem...

Yes, that is a custom OceanSwipe 360 robot cleaning the tank. More later.

In the last six months;

AI lighting
New calcium reactor
Dual C02 scrubbers on protein skimmer
Bubble Magnus filter roller
ReefBot water testing robot
OseanSwipe 360 cleaning robot.

Iíve been busy. And am broke. Tank responding well to changes.
More later.

Dary's tank!

Hey everyone, itís seemed like a million years since Iíve posted anything here,...sometimes life just gets in the way of fun !!
My aquarium is doing ok ,.. lots and lots of LPS but basically no SPS since last year.
My down fall came when my last powder blue tang ( #3 ) died after looking healthy and beautiful for 9 months ,..in fact the others lasted exactly 9 months too with the same case scenario,...I kinda lost motivation after #3 passed and the aquarium suffered for it.
Somehow, Iím going to figure this all out and Iíll try again and get one of these critters to prevail... I really donít understand these creatures like I should but I will.
I know Gregís got some swimming around like tadpoles in a kids pickle jar but itís my nemesis and Iím going to prevail .
I hope everyone is healthy and doing the best they can during this pandemic,..it sucks but it is what it is .
Iím sure the aquariums prob take a back seat when it comes maintaining a household and jobs or even trying to keep toilet paper on hand .
I just wanted to touch base with everyone and wish them the best !!

Powders are just super sensitive. I'm still working on my tank rebound too bud. You got it in you, time for some water changes and a brewsky.

Hey Dary, great to hear from you. Havenít posted in forever either. Developed a serious algae bloom in my 180 thatís been up for years. Was baffling because Iíd had no problems until this December. Tried everything. Massive water changes, reduced feeding (to the point I think I inadvertently starved my Blue Throat Trigger) lighting changed, harvesting by hand. Then one day I was doing something in the stand and noticed an ammonia odor. Apparently one of the cats was using the area between the stand and sump as a litter box. I thoroughly cleaned the area and stuck some baking soda under there and Iíve really gained ground. As far as I can tell the intake for the skimmer was pulling the ammonia vapor in just enough to feed the algae. Itís the only thing I can figure.

This stay at home order has helped my new hobby get out of control. I now have 20 tarantulas with number 21 on the way in a couple of weeks.

That is very interesting...never heard of ammonia odor doing such a thing...have to keep that in mind. But let us know when it's time to stage an intervention on the spiders.

Itís not a problem until Iím selling all my belongings to sustain the addiction. At that point Iíll go to AA (Arachnids Anonymous).
