    Finger leathers melting

    Im starting to think its really just from the toxins from fragging the leather. Ive changed the carbon twice and done 2 10% water changes so far which i will keep up with but im hoping its not too late. I cant do more than 10% at a time though because the tank is 800 gallons Sent from my...

    Finger leathers melting

    I highly doubt it. Every colony reacted at the exact same time. Id think nudis would attack one first then spread to the rest. Also i havent added any new coral or rock in months Sent from my CLT-L04 using Tapatalk

    Finger leathers melting

    I have 5 colonies of finger leather that simultaneously shrivelled up about 2 weeks ago. Ive had them about 8 months and they have always looked great. They are getting some diatom growth on them which i continuously blow off and now today ive noticed some fingers have fallen off and some parts...

    Porites dying

    I have a well established system in which montipora are apparently thriving. I have about 10 different species all growing rapidly. What i cant understand is why all my porites suffer. All my yellow finger porites slowly die and my christmas tree rock that ive owned for 5 years just doesnt look...

    Borneman surge flapper wont pop?

    It is. I even tried a new flapper designed to trap the air inside longer allowing a longer flush. If i gently tug the float or hold my hand over the outlet pipe for a few seconds it pops up flawlessly. Sent from my CLT-L04 using Tapatalk

    Borneman surge flapper wont pop?

    Although i didnt see an issue having the s tube inside the bucket ( i didnt want to drill more holes in my canopy) i notice now that the initial drop in my s trap is much small than it would be had it been outside the bucket. Could that be my issue? I did see another design with the s trap like...

    Borneman surge flapper wont pop?

    Im at my wits end with this thing. Ive tried everything short of tossing it out the window and ive looked at several examples online but i can not find a key element i am missing. Ive tried longer chains, shorter chains, 2 floats, 1 float, taller s trap...what am i missing??? The only clue i...

    Borneman surge flapper wont pop?

    I meant more head pressure above the flapper equaling a greater total force holding it down. Also my float never gets submerged it just opens the flapper enough to drop the water level down to the point where there is no longer tension on the float line. Im not sure what you mean by the pop will...

    Borneman surge flapper wont pop?

    It should be dependent on the size of the flapper though not the size of the pipe as it enters the tank. I see what your saying though about total force maybe the fishing line needs to be shorter as well to reduce head pressure? Although Ive read other suggestions to increase the head pressure...

    Borneman surge flapper wont pop?

    Ok thanks ill try that. Another thing ive noticed on other designs is the drain always seems to reduce in size before entering the tank. Is this necessary? Id rather keep mine 1.5" to the tank and have more flow Sent from my CLT-L04 using Tapatalk

    Borneman surge flapper wont pop?

    Has anyone used these devices and can help me troubleshoot why the flapper on my flush valve wont fully pop open? The float will only pull it just enough to let the water pass through at the same rate its coming in to the bucket. I do have an s tube on the 1.5" drain line that comes up just...
