TANK TALK: Do you already own and use any Avast equipment? If so, what is your favorite and why? If not, is there anything at the top of your list?
I don't have any avast gear, but the skimmate locker is at the top of my list.

Too funny, I've been tinkering with some ideas for the very same thing. I could describe it verbally but I think if I drew it up it would make more sense. I'll get to it.
I need to figure out something like this for curved acrylic. I have a 36" diameter cylinder tank that's getting ready for water, but I don't want to start it up as a reef tank until I have an easy and reliable cleaning plan in place. And that plan doesn't include hand scraping coralline and that green plaque algae that's even worse to get off.
I got to thinking about this last night and thought of an easier solution. Thinking outside the box, who said the mag scrappers have to be rigid? I had ordered a diatomaceous earth powder puffer thingy and was squeezing the bulb when it hit me. Why not make it out of silicone? With the right thickness (and alternating magnets like my first example), it could retain enough rigidity yet have enough flex to conform to the radius. (Maybe even have some "leaf spring" style radial arms molded into it.) Now that's something I would buy (and I DIY almost everything).

TANK TALK: What's been your most expensive / heartbreaking fish loss due to jumping?
This guy, he never made it out of quarantine. I put an auto feeder on and had the slightest hole and he found it.

I don't yet. I have been looking at the ATO and Ozone. I have a few more tanks now so another ATO is in the future.

I have been thinking of giving Ozone a try for awhile, just haven't made that final decision yet.

AVAST PLANK Top Lids Giveaway contest 4.jpg

Avast Marine and Top Lids are teaming up to bring you an awesome and fun giveaway with a bit of a different spin!! Welcome to the "Tank Talk with Top Lids & Avast Marine Giveaway!!" Both Avast Marine and Top Lids have established themselves with a reputation for quality and innovation that leads to epic excellence! We're proud to have both of these great companies as sponsors of our community, and super excited about seeing them come together for this event!

Now, I said this giveaway has a bit of a different spin to it, and here's what I mean... One of the things we love about having a community like Reef2Reef is that we can come together over our passion for all things marine and celebrate the wonderful parts of the reef hobby, we enjoy showing off tanks, talking through complications, finding solutions, and celebrating progress toward those thriving beautiful reef aquariums, and we do all of that together in community! Well, in this event, you guys are going to get to talk through all of these different aspects of the hobby with the guys behind these 2 awesome brands.

Each day, you will be given a discussion prompt (or sometimes maybe more than one), and your response to that prompt is your entry to the giveaway! It really is that simple! Engaging in conversation about reefing topics with @Avast Justin and @Top_Lids is how you participate and WIN in this contest!!

The grand prize for this giveaway is a Plank Autofeeder and a large bag of Reef Jerky (feeds an average size tank for 5-6 months) from Avast Marine and a custom Luxury Lid from Top Lids w/ Food Regulator!

Also, in addition to that grand prize, the great folks at Avast Marine and Top Lids have said that they will be monitoring the giveaway with the plan to award bonus prizes to people they see who are completely engaged with the contest and the ongoing conversations in here!
