Happy New Year
A happy New Year to you as well!
I'm curious how the GFCI stuff worked out, and wondering if you have AFCI breakers at the panel PLUS the GFCI outlet maybe... ?
I haven't done anything to remedy this and the trips have become practically gone. It might trip once every few weeks if that now, very strange.
So, Your still pushing the T5's with the MH?
Yea I haven't changed much setup wise in the last few months. With the holidays and working a bunch of OT at work I haven't been giving my tank the attention it deserves haha. I won't go as far as saying that I've neglected it *cough* @mdbannister, but other than water changes and dosing nopox I haven't done much to my tank
I really need to write up a solid update here soon lol.
When should we expect an update?
One of these years, everytime I go to bust out the camera something comes up lol
Not a super great update, but just a quick video I took of the tank as I dosed red sea reef energy part a&b under actinics. I call it the green fog lol
Dang George, you do the nopox thing.
I killed a whole reef tank a couple years ago with nopox. Rtn stn it trashed my tank, color went south, and that was it.
But I'm sure you know the risk
It's crazy but nopox actually has helped keep my tank going for the last year or so. I keep telling myself to go get vodka so I can make my own nopox but I haven't been to a liquor store in some time lol.
That's good. I tried both and I couldn't keep clean the cyno from the vodka dosing. Nopox is a much better method.
I agree, all nopox is is vodka, vinegar and to water haha. I have the recipe around here somewhere
Yeah the big difference I found in the 2, wene i was dosing, was vodka has more sugar in it I believe.
And redsea throws in methanol or something special like that.
look at all that space........plenty of room for frags from the Lear swap!
How long have you had "Blue"?
Oh I know, I'm trying to buy but need more money! Care to donate some sticks? Hahaha
This year will be 12 years. I got him in 2006.
I'll see if I can find some pics from then, I might have some on facebook
12 years old, is amazing!!!
Yea this fish is something else. When he came in from blue zoo I thought he was going to die on me. Super skinny, not eating and tattered fins. Blue zoo actually extended his guarantee from 14 days to 30 days after I sent them pics lol.
Here is one of him from 2006 when I first got him and put him in my 75 gallon (tang police don't shoot! Lol)
He's been thru 3 tank transfers (75 to 6' 120 gallon to the 180) 2 battles with ich that completely wiped out all other fish besides him, a war between himself and my desjardini in which cost him a year of solitude in my frag tank.
He now looks like this
Couldn't be happier
Nice fish man!
