Some new toys just arrived! A pair of gyre FX280, controller and battery back up!

also was playing around with some rock last night, that’s75 lbs of rock, going to be going for a “minimalist” scape, with lots of over hangs and caves for fish to hide in. I have 150 lbs of rock in the garage, plus the 100 lbs of rock in my 100 gallon currently running which will end up in the sump of the new build

Looking good though! It is definitely NOT easy no matter what anyone says

Thanks! I think once the e400 shows up, and the crazy glue, I’ll have a lot more success since I can make the over hangs I want!

I'm sure you know but just make sure you don't cement too much together in one piece. It will make removing things in the future an absolute nightmare if they weigh a TON. ;Smuggrin

Where are you ordering all your stuff from btw??

Jl aquatics mainly, but the odd thing from BRS, or reefsupplies if JL is backordered!

So, playing around with my Apex and the new Mobius MP40, I realized I can’t program a feed mode with them! I guess I’m going to order a WXM before there permanently gone, and roll back the firmware on the drivers to be compatible. I want feed mode to be automatic twice a day when the auto feeders go off!

Great build so far. How is the new house build coming along? Possession soon and then shortly after a new tank update.

Have you spoken to local fish stores about the install? They typically have all the equipment to do the job safely.
House is done besides kitchen and painting. Possession is coming fast! Then it’s finishing the basement and installing the tank.

Unfortunately my LFS is some what useless when it comes to tank installs unless I buy the tank from them
