    Hi Rangel,

    You may find "Black Diamond" carbon at Walmart in the pet section. It's the Walmart brand that is as good as the stuff you get at the LFS. A Phosban reactor can hold up to 3 cups of GAC, and I run it on my reef all the time. I'm trying to change it out weekly, but it usually gets done every two weeks. Not running it isn't an option for my mixed reef. The water gets a little murky, and some coral decline if I don't keep up with it.

  2. Thanks for the interest, but I'm going to keep the T5 fixture as a backup in case of some failure, or If I start a second tank.

New Beginning. New Tank. I Need Your Opinion On Stand Color!

by Blennymower on 05-04-2013 at 09:50 AM
Starting law school led to me exiting the hobby for a while. But I'm back. I need your opinion on what color I should make the stand. I'm thinking white or black. Black will match with the tank seams and the soon to arrive Hamilton Cebu Sun fixture. White will look nice and will match the sand. Tell me what you think. Here's the new tank (all Starphire):

Swapped out the 75 for this nano. College is sucking up a lot of time and money.

Bulb Flickering

by Blennymower on 05-11-2010 at 12:19 PM
I have 2 250 watt IceCap ballasts. One has a 14k hamilton and the other has a 12K Reeflux. By the way, both bulbs are almost identical to the eye.
I noticed that once in a blue moon my hamilton bulb would flicker (when I say flicker I mean a very fast and subtle flicker, one can only notice when paying close attention) but this would occur for about a minute and disappear for a long while. It actually doesn't happen anymore. On the Reefluc bulb, however, this flicker does not stop.

My Canopy Build

by Blennymower on 04-30-2010 at 08:45 PM
I sold my T5s and decided to go back to MHs. I didn't want a fixture, so I would need a canopy. I decided to make my own to save some money. Although in the end I probably spent just as much as if I would have had bought a canopy, I feel the project contributed to a skill I would like to further develop, carpentry. Not to mention the sense of accomplishment that you get from completing the project.

While you look at the pictures remember, this is my first ever carpentry project. It's
