Only 90 Days old and I've had a 29 gallon sump crack/leak, replaced that with a 40 gallon Breeder for a sump, Built a new Stand and Swapped the old stand out with the new stand. So far, it appears that I only lost 1 Turbo Snail. ( He stunk when I pulled him out of the QT tank, so, maybe it was his time.) Otherwise, All my fins and corals appear to have made it through the ordeal of the past 2 weeks.
Well, After about 9 days of hard labor, the new Stand is completed. I had help from my cousin on the skinning of it. Am hopeful to begin the Stand Swap on Friday. Any words of wisdom on doing a stand swap out there?
Below are some pix of the build. The inside is Kilnz and then a Qt of HD's - Behr's Semi-Gloss Interior Enamel paint. (purchased for only a buck, some one else's "opps Paint" but, the type and color were okay for my purposes.)
I took the week off, went to Point of the Mountain, Ut. ( Near SLC) for some Hanggliding with friends, only to have my wife tell me that she thought the sump was leaking 3 days into the trip. Well, I returned today and my 29 gallon sump was indeed leaking, so, Turned off the return pump, turned off the Remora Pro P.S. , heaters to off and went about the business of quickly heading to Walmart for a 10 gallon tank as the fuge section was for the 1st time, working
