The reeflo blowhole pump came in today as well as the stunner strip for moonlights and the expoxy.
The rock work is all epoxied together now and should be sturdy Very Happy



Compact and good head!



Unfortunatly due to how the pump is setup (in flow and outflow side) to be placed flat on the bottom of my stand you would have to cut out the backside of the stand...
Instead I am planning on making a wood stand to support the weight of the pump and I will run it inline. Hopefully I will get to it tomorrow, if not it may be a week or so.

Size comparison between the two
PCX-30


BH1100


Here is the old external pump


Now it’s gone!


Now there’s a replacement!




The glue is curing for another hour and a half, hopefully it will work lol.

My new Koralias came in. Each are controllable 1400gph pumps.



The one on the top is the new one, it has the same output as the larger old one.


Controller for them


And here they are on the tank (Ignore the cords, that is one of tomorrows tank tasks!)

They are pretty cool! I have my pump shut off again tonight as I am going to put putty or silicone on the bulkhead. With the flow off for hours it stops dripping. SO the new koralias are the only thing powering the tank.

Yeah I'll sell the old ones, I'll list them tomorrow. One of them needs to be cleaned because it doesn't lock in place and I dropped the other on the carpet and the red stem broke that holds it to the magnet. Therefore they will be cheap lol

Thanks! I can't say I care for the sound of them kicking on and off, but then I remembered the huge whining sound that my mp10 make when it was on full power and was happy with my purchase Very Happy

The tank is pretty much compete now, from lights to pumps. Today I cut up the old part of the canopy into three strips and stained the sides of them and coated them with polyurethane. Then latched them to the top so all three lift independently.



The cords from the Koralias were almost too short to make it....




Ecoxotic led strip 48in. (my finger is pointing to it on the left)




Only the stunner/moonlight on

Thankfully people only seem to play when I play, be it with friends or family. I will make sure that doesn't happen Very Happy

So last Thursday I went out collecting in sarasota with Mango and my friends Nick and Chan. I ended up coming home with 4 sea urchins, a filefish, and a wrasse. The filefish is now missing (not in the overflow, I checked lol).

Longspine black


Here is the wrasse


The bleached white is where the pincushion cleaned Very Happy




Some crabs from the conference today that were free from Reef 2 reef, I still wont buy from them again, but gladly accepted free blue legs.


And my favorite... one of the pincushion trying to blend in by carrying a mushroom lol

Sounds and looks like a pretty successful collecting trip! Love the pic of the urchin carrying around your shroom & co. lol

Btw, don't think that's a wrasse. Mr. Vargas said today that all wrasses have an unbroken dorsal fin. lecturing

Thanks for looking finding it man! I looked in the tank and the filefish poked his head out so he is still doing good Very Happy.

I can't wait to go back, I'm ready whenever lol. It was a great spot. I'm bringing something for my feet next time though. The back of my ankle is still cut pretty good.
