This video showed up in my newsfeed on facebook today, and I had to share it with y'all. And if you want to know what's
Reefs2go had a special earlier this week, announcing it on the DFWMAS forums since they are a sponsor. The first 50 orders got free shipping (USPS Priority Mail), so I jumped on the deal. For $40, I got ceriths, astreas, margarita snails, nassarius snails,a lettuce nudibranch and some blue leg hermits. The box shipped out Wednesday for a Friday delivery, and the bags felt warm. Too warm to the point I decided to measure it with a thermometer.
Got a little news from Marineland today. They disassembled the tank today. I'm guessing with what remains to be done (Rebuild, let cure, water test, crate and ship), it'll be about four weeks until the tank returns.
The 215g did great while I was at Comic Con. The tank sitter said he didn't have to adjust anything during the six days he watched over it, and the Apex never emailed/texted me with out-of-limit notifications. Texas has been hot-n-humid, but the tank never varied more
The 215g continues to do well, which has been plumbed into the main sump since 4/16/12. Wow, already almost three months. Last I heard, Marineland received the crated 400g, but I've not heard anything further.
So I figured it was time for some eye candy. I've been watching the corals settle in over the past few weeks, and continue to be pleased to see their comeback. Specifically, some SPS have improved, which are my favorite coral.
Let me start off this this coral.
I ship a lot of sumps, but the ones that need to be crated seem to be more important, so I'm sharing.
This one is made with 3/8" cast acrylic, and is 48" x 24" x 16". It's a tough sump. This is the front of the sump. It will be installed in a basement with the refugium side up against a wall.
The three zoned sump provides both a skimmer section, a long refugium zone, and a large return
