  1. Red Sea Reefer 650 Peninsula

    I've had those although mine was the leopard variety (Really big sucker about 2" long) but thankfully they only prey on clams and snails, not LPS so once I removed my LPS and snails for a few months I was good to go. Sadly the ones you have seem to like LPS which are much more difficult to get rid off although some wrasse will control them but never truly eradicate. Good job in removing the LPS which should sort it. Keep an eye on your snail population just in case. Here's a vid of two I found in my sump:
  2. Equipment cabinet

    Have a look on ebay mate. Might be someone selling a cheap nano that has the cabinet included.
  3. Second tank

    Is your dosing unit an all in one version or a doser which runs of a GHL computer?
  4. Kraken Corals

    Funny enough the 26th May is my Birthday. As you know I won't be buying anything anyway....until I get the new build up and running. Saving the pennies for that.

  7. Re scape

    I think its missing something.....
  8. North West RF meet

    There's been a few members looking to meet up recently so how about we set a date and location. There's plenty of shops in the North West to keep us busy for at least a full day so if anyone from down south fancies meeting up with us Northerners please do! It'll certainly be worth your while. What sort of dates did everyone have in mind?
  9. Post pictures

    Reef-Face :). Just drag and drop your pictures into the reply box.
  10. Refilled ROWA & added refreshed carbon. Found a potential issue with NOPOX doser which may explain high no3 (sucking in air). Cleaned glass, trimmed back weeds and inadverteny made frags of some crappy corals. Really frustrated with the tank atm as plating coral and xenia are just taking over....maybe time for a tear down.

  12. Attaching corals

    So how do you do it? What material do you use to affix corals to rocks/plugs?

    Good to have you on board Chris!
  14. Bryopsis let the battle begin

    Good job that pal. Congrats!
  15. Woody Frag Tank

    Jesus he lives! Where you been buddy?!
  16. For anyone interested the latest control centre has firmware updates for Profilux 3 and 4 available. Just updating mine now, I'll report back with any issues.
  17. Bryopsis let the battle begin

    Its the pump...which I guess is good news as its mechanical, not electronic which means it may be rectified. I'm gonna give it a long soak in citric acid to break down any calcification. It starts then stalls after a couple of rotations so it seems to be sensing a back wash or is catching on something. We'll see what happens.
  18. Bryopsis let the battle begin

    Not yet, just wiring up the 2nd doser to give reef energy a try. What started out as a quick thing as turned into a sump overhaul! Can't wait to upgrade ;)
  19. Bryopsis let the battle begin

    More than a little. Wouldn't dream of trying something like that as your tank is looking so good. Good to catch up today mate.
