Posted 06/13/2010 at 02:48 PM by superkat (Thoughts While Watching Paint Dry)

It has really been SO delightful to me recently on how I am watching people helping people, not only here...but everywhere lately. Personally...i can't tell you how much I have appreciated the frags to help me get my 90g back into shape...but more that gives me hope and encourages me to continue to be the person I'm becoming.

Everyone changes...they go through phases in their life that are affected by circumstances and environment. I continue to try and find good in...

Well, that was one way to cycle a tank...

We have no idea how high the nitrite got in the tank. Actually we still don't, as the test kit only goes up to 2 ppm. Even diluting with fresh SW it pegged the test kit. Nitrate was over the 25ppm limit of that kit as well. So we did a change of about 90 gallons yesterday. The nitrite is still pegged, though it didn't darken to that quite as quickly as before. The nitrate wasn't pegged, but somewhere between 10ppm and 25ppm. Better than it was, but I hate the lack of precision of most colorimetric...

Jaw fish question

Thanks for the help.

More leaks, waiting game

Posted 05/26/2010 at 10:11 AM by sacremon

Chris came over and fixed the leaky bulkhead on the sump. After he left, I fired up the skimmer pump, which led to finding two more leaks - one from where two pieces of PVC were glued together and the threads leading into the skimmer pump. Put glue around the seam on the PVC yesterday, will test how well that holds tonight. The threads were a bit loose, I will probably want to keep an eye on both pumps initially, to see if the vibration of the pumps running loosen things up more.
