The recovery

Posted 07/18/2010 at 09:22 PM by Mmckibben

It took one year, but i fixed every thing. First i had a huge aiptasia problem, it took me $500. Right after that all my fish suddenly died from velvets. Then over a 30 day period i got RTN, flat worms, and a phosphate buildup. Now after losing all but 5 of my corals, and a new phosphate reactor, every thing is perfect. I have perfect water conditions and tons and tons of coraline algae.

I'm now working on a DIY led system using a 24 volt 4 amp dimming power supply, standard house...

New additions and a backup plan works

Posted 07/14/2010 at 09:11 PM by sacremon

Yesterday some fairly violent storms rolled through our area and knocked out power to our subdivision. Power stayed off for about 1.5 hours. I turned off the electricity to the tank at the breaker box, in case it came up again very flickery, which it did when it went out. The UPS I have on the powerheads did its job, keeping the powerheads going the entire time, so that the tank had some circulation/aeration going.

Chris, the LFS owner, mailed me today that he could bring over...

Living your life

Posted 07/13/2010 at 06:03 AM by superkat (Thoughts While Watching Paint Dry)

So far, I've managed to beat every single odd associated with Takayasu's Arteritis, a disease I was supposed to die from in 2001. I have learned to live my life with an edge that most may find risky, or uncomfortable. But I hold no secrets to the success of life. It is different for everyone. What works for me may not work for others...but I can tell you this, that living life in a state of negativity, regret and "what if" scenarios does nothing but wear down your spirit, cause you to...

I have to admit....

I totally suck in the discernment area. When God was passing out brains? I was in the line for the happy dances. I really love life. But my overwhelming generosity and the fact that I rarely look before I leap puts me in places where hours or days later i find myself bashing my head into a brick wall, usually in the same spot that already was bashed into previously.

I'm such a sucker. Live in the moment. Suffer consequences later.

I was skipping rocks yesterday...
