OVER ALL I AM JUST NOT HAPPY WITH IT. It makes a lot noise. Like it gets out of sync. I have had it up and running since last December, cleaned it regularly with vinegar which may be bad, but I have never seen any magnet/plastic bulging.

After keeping the Foxface Rabbit fish in the UV QT for about a month, I did the modified TTM using first formalin dip and then using H2O2 dip. Mr. Foxface tolerated the H2O2 dip with flying colors. No signs of distress at all.

I got 5 spiny star astea snails from a nice local fish store I recently found. I also picked up a nice moderatley sized purple cabbage coral - sinularia dura. Simple cheap and easy! It is one of my favorite leather corals.

#honestyinreefing just an update that pouring bleach over a piece of LR will indeed kill a lot of pods. I just wanted to share that either the bleach or ammonia spike did more than shock a lot of pods. There were many dead pods later in that bucket. :(

@Brew12 I finally remembered to read your article on ground probes. Nice article. Is there is one you recommend?

And to check my skimmer pump...
Use a bucket of water, the ground probe in the water with the pump and then plug in the skimmer pump. If the GFCI trips the pump is bad?

If you don't keep your sand bed clean it will cause your tank to crash.
