    Marc I remember reading about you doing something about how the water moves through the teeth into the external overflow to quiet it down or improve the laminar flow? What was that? I can't find it. I'm setting up my new tank.

    Hey Melev, A question for you do you use the Reef Octopus's BioSpheres that you sell on your site? If you do how do you like them or is there something better? Looking to use them in Next Reef SMR1 reactor. Thanks for your thoughts

    Hey Melev. I have a question about posting videos on Reef Addicts Blog. I have been having trouble loading some videos while creating a new blog. I go to the "attach pictures" thingy where you upload and then drag the photo down, then put it on the blog. The short videos I have can be avi or mp4 files but neither worked. They are videos of some creatures in my tank I wanted help identifying. Is this only for pictures? And if so, is there any way to upload videos to a blog? Thank you for any help!! - Dustin Getta (gettaReef)

    Hey Marc,
    New to the hobby and came across the pod casts. Very entertaining. Are their any plans of creating more? Thanks for all the tools and information you provide for us newbies on Reef Addicts.

    I found a an article you posted showing 4 bulkheads installed in the bottom of a glass box added on the outside of a tank. My question is how did you cut those slots. The article was titled "Plumbing Primer - How to purchase & install bulkheads". address:http://www.reefaddicts.com/content.p...tall-bulkheads

Day 1247: Three years, 5 months

by melev on 04-10-2017 at 02:23 AM
If you follow my youtube channel, you've probably heard how I have to get my arms wet and really cull the 400g reef because the growth at the top is shadowing everything beneath, and those things beneath have little chance of living. I hate to have to rip out these big colonies, but there's no choice. Here are a bunch of pictures of the tank today. I've also included some images of the Anemone Cube.

Biggest thing to happen recently was an alkalinity dip. When I see some coral turn

Not what I would do

Had a surprise guest tonight. I was working on something and he and his wife showed up at my door to visit. My tanks were all less than stellar because I haven't cleaned the glass lately, and it occurred to him that he could try using his iPhone 7 Plus to take some underwater pictures. My frag tank is low enough for an easy test. So here are three he shared.

Video: Gryphon C-40 AquaSaw

I bought myself this bandsaw over two years ago at the Denver MACNA. It was basically a gift to myself, but I never opened the box until two weeks ago when I started fragging some corals at last. It's pretty impressive, and hence I had to make a video about it.

Video: BTS at the Birch Aquarium

I was way too busy last week, so that video is a few days late. But I had a pretty decent excuse...

Here's the Behind The Scenes footage from the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla, California.
