    I think it's the "burning gem favia." It's looking great!

    Jackie,
    Is your 180 still struggling?

    Thanks Jackie! Things def seem to be doing better now that I've stopped messing around with things


    Yup that's the plan! I'm working toward a losing this acro killer name I've got lol




    :(

    Haha I wish! I could splurge for that fixture but I would rather buy corals! Lol

    Besides, my hamilton/reefbrite led/reefbrite t5 concoction is working it seems lol

    Yes I believe that's the key. I used to be an Acro Killer too! Well technically I still am but I did get them to grow quite well for a while until the tank crashed.... You got this! Can't wait to see what your brewing up :D

    And no, I'm not going to put my long-winded explanation as to why my tank is doing badly on your thread LOL it'll get better I'm sure.

    So this weekend I decided it was time to part ways with this old girl...

    20180210_110135.jpg

    Here it is all loaded up ready for the long trip.

    And here it is at her new destination..

    20180210_142515.jpg

    It's here where the skimmer will be.....










    For a couple weeks or so lol :p


    @geo at Geo's Reef let me bring it to his shop to repair the leaking valve on it. He has to basically redo about half of the hard plumbing on it. He will be adding a couple unions to it so if this ever happens again I can just swap the valve out myself.

    The family and I had the 3 hour trip to his shop, while we were out that way we stopped at a LFS rivers to reefs. It is a pretty nice store I felt. We then drove a bit further to Easton to do some shopping. It was rainy and cold so we didn't do much shopping lol, but we did get some Jenny's ice cream! That's some of the best in the biz if you ask me.

    I can't wait to get this skimmer fixed and back online lol

    Thanks again @geo !

    It's an oldie but a goodie hahaha. With the dual ehiem 1262's it pulls out used motor oil type skimmate haha.

    I bet Geo's shop would be a neat place to visit. Nice skimmer.

    It was an experience. I was hoping @geo had a sump in stock to try and sell me while I was there lol. He was working on a what looked to be a decent sized CaRX order for a vendor.

    His sumps are pretty sweet. I already had mine by the time I had noticed the ones he is making now. Too bad I only have room for one sump. :)

    They are pretty sweet. I'll see get one if I ever upgrade displays, or if I can convince my wife into letting me ditch my current sump for a new one hahaha
