    I bought the new RD3 Speedy pump / Bubble King Double Cone 200 combo. I think this is the first one in the United States. The new pump has all titanium parts and is brushless and controllable with an LED readout for watts and % power. I have been running it for a couple months now and it is...
  2. SPS Keepers
    Live view of some frags that I've been growing for 15 months, they were about about 1 " with 1 or 2 fingers when I bought them. I have other SPS in this tank that grows at 10 times this rate. These are pretty though, it seems that the prettier they are - the slower they grow... HiggyReef on...
  3. Coral Propagation and Aquaculture
    Please give advice here on fragging large SPS colonies in place, (not by taking out of display tank). I have a large colony that I want to frag, but I do not want to remove it. Can I snip off 1" frags without breaking the base off of the coral? This is what I am afraid of. I have the bone...

    I am lucky to have a generator. We lost power again for the 4th time in the last couple years. I need to have a transfer switch installed since I'm tired of running several power cords all over the house. The Halloween graphics are freaking me out. New frags look great, even after the power...
  5. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    I have a 125 DT & was wondering if I put 2 MP10s, one on each end and a modded Tunze 6025 on the back would that be enough flow for my tank? I just would like to have some alternating flow in my tank. I ALSO have 2 more modded Tunez 6025's and 6 different Koralia's (a #2, 3 #3s, a #4 & a evo...
  6. Lighting, Filtration and Other Equipment
    I finally decided to go for it. I changed from 2 return pumps (Mag 9.5B, 93W each 186W 24hrs a day) to 1 return pump, (1340gph 60W). This pump was plumbed thru a 1" SCWD in order to alternate flow to the two returns. This will save me about $17 a month during the high summer electric rates...

  9. SPS Keepers
    The power outage last February (Kalamazoo, MI) caused my temp to drop for a while (before I got the generator running). I think this caused about 15 tips on a large acro colony to die off; there is some algae growing on the dead spots now. My tangs pick at the algae on the acro tips, will this...

  12. SPS Keepers
    One of my largest SPS colonies is dead and the RTN (Rapid Tissue Necrosis) is spreading to a birdsnest coral now. I am going to chop out both colonies so that it doesn't spread anymore (I hope). You may see it below. I am uploading a YouTube video of the tank as I type, I will put it in this...

    My SPS is growing like crazy as is the soft coral. I have 4 different brains that are effected (see video link below (but be forwarned of a 30 second add that is loud), look at the lower left corner for the biggest brain, you can see the recession there). They are all slowly receeding from the...
  14. Reef Fish
    I've had a beautiful Powder Blue Tang for a few years now. Just today I noticed that he really goes after some of my smaller fish. I'm worried that he is getting aggressive and my pose a problem soon. So far he and the Yellow Tang get along, aside from a little tail flick now and then...

    Is there anyone out there who could talk me through the setup to allow internet access to my RKE data? I can access it through my wireless home network and my iPhone if I'm within reach of my home network. But I have not been able to figure out the port forwarding or dynamic DNS settings...

    I am considering buying a pretty expensive colony of acans, so I was wondering if anybody has any advice concerning them. I've bought stuff before like favia without realizing they sting, so any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!
