The weir is connected via 1 inch bulkheads that go to the external box and flow through the above mentioned pipe.

I cannot get enough flow through the weir to balance the

The dream...

Posted 01/29/2019 at 10:58 AM by Prairie Reef (PRP300 Build 2)

Prairie Reef Project 1 was a learner, Frankentank of mismatched second hand parts, plumbing ignorance, and maintenance headaches. In short all the first timer mistakes including letting GSP into my tank and having to use a wet/dry vac and hoses draped all over the house to do water changes. At 75 gallons it was a compromise tank - too large to be simple, too small for a lot of livestock and rock work. It was beautiful, loved it, but I out grew it and in 2014 took it down - rehomed my beloved pets...

"Tang police"?

Posted 01/08/2019 at 02:54 PM by Ben485

[QUOTE=Ben485;25542918]I like most of them, but won't be able to get a tank big enough for most. I think 125 is probably going to be as big as I can get. So I was thinking a powder blue, a yellow, or purple. I had to sell my old 125 back in 2008 because I moved across the country. Gotta talk my better half into getting one that big again. She said I could have a 100 gallon, but what's another 25 gallons among friends!?!? Maybe I should try for the 220!!!

And then there were two

Posted 10/09/2018 at 10:20 AM by sacremon

I got a call from my maintenance guy that one of the C. semilarvatus had died. No disease that he could see, but he noted that it hadn't been eating much. That leaves two there and one existing one in my tank. Not sure how well this will go, particularly if the two in his tank happen to have bonded. If they are both around by the time quarantine is done, I will have to monitor how they integrate into the tank carefully.

Also I was off on the price. $95 each plus the shipping...

Not exactly what I was planning...

Posted 09/27/2018 at 10:36 PM by sacremon

I recently got a couple Red Sea endemic butterflies, a C. semilarvatus and a C. fasciatus. The original plan was to get a pair of C. semilarvatus from someone that my maintenance guy knew, who has seven in a 700g. He decided not to part with his fish, which I can understand, so I went and got the two that I have from DD. Last week I get a call from my maintenance guy that he a line on a number of C. semilarvatus from an importer and could get them for $70 apiece. These fish normally retail for...
