I just added a Bubble Magnus roller prefilter system since Iíve never faired well with socks in this old aquarium. It works deluxe. Iím wondering if anyone has tried rewashing the fleece and then rewinding it back onto a roll for reuse? OK! Iím cheap.

I wish Greg. I have two filter socks for my tank...that's it. They get a lot of rinsing out. Those rollers thankfully won't fit in the red sea sump...because those rollers are pricey. But I'm not sure why you wouldn't be able to hit them with a hose or run it through a washing machine somehow. Depends how the fleece is attached.

I can't really answer your question directly but I will say that reusability is one of the keys to sustaining people in the hobby (IMO). With the costs of equipment being an issue to many, not having to re-buy products continuously but better occasionally, will help keep manufacturers in a hobbyist's favor and loyalty. It has with me at least. So I don' t think you are cheap but more, practical.

300 gallon "Outside Corner" Reef

I have come to love the Bubble Magus ARF-1. For $200 one of the best values I have found. You can really customize this thing. It works brilliantly. No more socks, ever! Amazing amount of filth lifted right out of the water.

The KH Guardian pro however was a miserable purchase. Stay away. Almost as bad as the defunct Mindstream monitor. Thank heavens I didnít get burned on that one as I was a early Kickstart funder.

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.

Am really loving the ReefBot. After a bit of a false start, it is functioning well and caught my Kalkwasser reactor getting the KH too high again. Monitor is showing the KH going down about .2 every 24 hours as I correct it. Iím running ALK, P04, MG and CAL now and can switch out vials and run Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate, Copper and Iodine whenever I want. This is basically a low cost titration lab machine purposed to using off shelf aquarium test kits. Iíll do more reviews later.

This is a portion of the email the ReefBot sends me when it tests.

It more about catching up. I havenít been posting. I also like to try new ideas out. Some are brilliant, some are garbage.

Yes, that is a custom OceanSwipe 360 cleaning robot on the old reef. It goes around the 45 and the 90 degree corners. My arthritis has made this a necessity.

I bet. Spending my life typing away at dispatch is def causing such to slowly creep around I think.
How is the tank doing of late?

Hello again.
Building a new retirement home and retiring the 33 year old 300 gallon outside corner reek and moving my 25 year old fish to the new 400 gallon Planet Ocean peninsula tank. All new equipment and a glass tank. 71 years old I am and I must have my head examined. Just filling it with water later today. Iíll keep my old cronies posted.

Congrats on the new home.
At least you'll have the old stock from the tank for the new one. Is this going to also be a reef or a fish only tank?

Sounds really great. I just sold my end game tank and am out of the hobby.
Whats the plan for the new setup? Will you be moving the separated clown tang in with general public?

Sold the clown tang. Good memory!
Most of the fish are over 20 years old and a coral beauty is almost 30. They are friends I couldnít leave behind.

Hi Andy. Itís going to be a rebuild of the old reef using most of that old rock built on a new structure. A lot more room being a peninsula.
