Re: Been a while... #11
That's sad to hear, you sounded like you were getting really in to it and frankly the turnaround you made on your clownfish with brooklynella was astounding. What made you give it up in the end?

As for me, I need to update my profile lol.

I'm just marines now. Still have my nano and I converted my Juwel 190l in to a marine setup, which was hard work and stupidly expensive. By the end I could have had a custom tank built to my specifications for cheaper. That's Marines for ya... and as for the lighting! Finding something to meet specification was ridiculous, it took 6 months to find an appropriate set up, silly.

It's still very much an ongoing project, which I hope will develop over the next few years. It's been running just under a year now and I only have 4 fish and 3 corals, I haven't been in a rush with it.

Montipora spp. will feature heavily and I've picked up some great specimens which have shown significant growth so far.

Still enjoying the hobby, it's just had to take a back seat for quite a while!

Re: Been a while... #13
Jet is great thanks V! As mischievous as usual lol

Family was part of the reason I haven't been about much, some things had to take priority for a while.

As for advice, lol, I've forgotten most of what I knew, feels like I've been out of the loop for a long time now, looking forward to seeing what's new.

Re: Been a while... #15
Hey guys!

Haven't really had much time at all for the internet lately, but sometimes it's nice to get a break.

Nice to see some old faces though.

Re: Ph swing #16
A Day/Night pH swing is perfectly normal, though to the extent you are seeing I would be slightly concerned. 7.8 to 8.4 is quite a lot.

Can you give us a little bit more detail about your setup?

Hey Suey!

What rides have you got planned? I'm doing a charity ride from York to Amsterdam in June. Really looking forward to it.

Been a while... #18
Hi peeps,

Been a while since I've been online (life stuff) but thought I'd drop in to say hi and relieve the server of my pm inbox (auto notifications and thousands of them....). lol

How is everyone and what have you been up to???

Re: Artifical Reefs #19
I read an article about a scuttled American Aircraft Carrier turned artficial reef not long ago. Seems to be a new trend for obsolete vessels and rigs, make them safe and sink them, after only a few years they will be covered by pioneering species and become as much a part of the reef as the thousands of years of coral growth around them.

Testament to the tenacity of nature I guess...

Re: Order of Flow TL450 #20
Personally I stack the media in order of the frequency with which it needs to be changed.

So, Live rock will be a permanent addition so place that at the bottom in a filter bag, then Phosphate (PO4) remover which can last for a number of months (depending on PO4 load in the tank), then Carbon which you would replace monthly, then filter wool which you would replace weekly.

That way you're not pulling out all the media every week to replace filter wool at the bottom etc.

I understand there are a couple of different versions of the TL-450 setup, the chambers seem to differ in layout which is odd...
