I love my stand. Had a custom wallboard added for easy fragging from the display but as you can see, it’s become an area to store junk instead.I thought I was the only reefer here using those stands!
Well done on sump. I was thinking about going with a cpl used tanks on upgrade but you have me seriously rethinking that now.
That’s just a testament to the Jaebo return pumps.4 years without servicing that pump? I should report you to Pump Protection Services!
I have 4+ years of buildup (and darn vermetids) that I need to get after in my overflows, weir & plumbing. I just hate the thought of it tho. Kind of a PITA to reach. Been putting it off repeatedly.
Remind me exactly how satisfying this little clean up project has been for you please. I need some encouragement.
I have the opposite issue with the way I feed. Thankfully I stopped dosing lanthanum chloride for a bit and removed the denitrator... and start slowly ramping the refugium... keeping it on the shorter photoperiod until I see a rise in nutrients.Ty! Nice job! But keep your eye on nitrate and phosphate levels to make sure they don't drop now because you just stole the gold from the bank!
Looks awesome and exhausting. I’m pretty sure I said “Sump day” though.New sump Sunday! (Coined by @Charlie’s Frags )
New manifold I built out of 2” PVC
Old sump I made out of a used 75 gallon
This is why I did this. To be able to run socks and remove this build up of 4 years of goop
Where I temporarily stored all my sump equipment and rocks
The hot mess
Nice open stand
Fits like a glove
A reminder to not run cables on the ground where spills can creep their way towards them
What 4 years of not maintaining your return pump looks like
My old manifold
New sump in place. Feels great to be able to reach in and work on it easily versus the old sump. Also, love that I’m being proactive about the buildup of detritus. It was everywhere! Lastly, looking forward to having a dedicated refugium now. Excuse the mess, I still need to organize the wires and place the probes neatly into the sump and also hang the refugium light.
Well then I don’t need to credit you at all.Looks awesome and exhausting. I’m pretty sure I said “Sump day” though.
Some people pay money to buy that stuff and call it a miracle...If you would have saw the 1” thick layer of mud in the sump in person, you would be overly satisfied as I am to have a refresh on the sump. Up next is cleaning out the second frag tank and then on to the display. Will be removing the sand and replacing it as well as new rock for the display and working on a new aquascape.
That fuge is filthy. You need to change that out!I have the opposite issue with the way I feed. Thankfully I stopped dosing lanthanum chloride for a bit and removed the denitrator... and start slowly ramping the refugium... keeping it on the shorter photoperiod until I see a rise in nutrients.
Speaking of... got my refugium light hung today. Grow little ball of chaeto, grow!
Wait...are you saying FedEx actually attempts to deliver packages?? I don’t buy it. That dude should be sitting in a chair thumbing thru Facebook! LOLI’ll send it FedEx.
