  1. Nice one! I need a long rest from this. Who knows? If I ever have more time & money, I may start again. For now, my tank is for sale in the classifieds on here Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have two. One is a spare. The one on the tank is a cad lights PLS-100 pipeless skimmer, generation 3. It has also been modified with a motorised cup cleaner. Can't remember name. I also have a generation 1 skimmer, same model number. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Fish and live rock has gone. There will be lots of kit for sale in the coming days. I have a sump full of cheato and caupaula going if anyone wants it. Collection only Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Whatever method you use, its going to cost money. Constant testing, all of the carbon, phos removers etc. Each wipe out is heartbreaking. I had a better time snorkelling in the Maldives and Caribbean. I think my money is better spent there! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I've stuck an airstone in the tank and changed the carbon. Someone coming tonight to buy fish and maybe all my kit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I need someone to come and get my fish. All my corals are dying Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Looks like my clam has copped it. It has shrunk right down in it's shell. This hobby is so depressing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I'm getting pretty exhausted. Two tank wipeouts and two very long power cuts have taken there toll on me and my wallet. 10 months jumping through hoops with triton are also taking its toll Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It was a flexible pipe inside vanity unit under wash basin. Next door noticed it at 10am. Did not realise they could just turn water off on water meter outside. They called me but my office is below ground so no mobile signal. I got home at 4.30pm to niagra falls and I turned off the water. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Had two days of hell. Leak while at work bought down living room ceiling. Diluted tank from 1.026 to 1.015. Blew up my MP40 power supplies, my jebao power supply and soaked my evergrow 2120 led light. Got evergrow dried out. Its working but screen is knackered. Also killed my laptop and soaked my house electrics. Spent 24hrs trying to save my fish. Fish ok but corals all look bad. Lost some snails and my tuxedo urchin hasn't moved. Anyone want to buy everything? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I know that feeling! More work than enjoying! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 10 months on triton and I can't add anything to my tank at these nitrate levels. My cyano has died off so something is happening! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I sorted the phosphate by tripling the amount of biophos80 and that is holding it at 0.03. Nitrates are still up 50-60 ppm. I'm considering upping the amount of live rock in my display to see if it will increase the nitrate eating bacteria Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Still hanging in here, still high nitrates. Lost my file fish Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. It could take a while to find the right buyer! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
