    birth of 2 builds totaling 30k gallons

    PhD work has kept me off of Reef Central for a while, was hoping to see some final pics of it operational. My guess is your computer issues are related to why I have been waiting a longtime to get our computer system back up, since I believe we have the same guy. Ours crashed and I have had to...

    Outbreak in quarantine. What I am doing wrong?

    I can't get a full shot of the system due to where it is tucked in at. There are a total of three of those sections with three 20 gallons high and one 40 breeders each. Plumbing is such that each tank can be isolated from the rest, I just have to add a heater if I do that. They all have their...

    Outbreak in quarantine. What I am doing wrong?

    My quarantine system is in the basement in a back room to minimize stress from movement outside the tank, and to hide it as it is functional but not attractive.

    Display system with parasite

    Why not just bleach the system and start over then if I need to leave it fallow for.at.least 90 days? What is the harm in that? I can calculate the amount of sodiumthiosulfate needed to remove the chlorine when I am done. I am a PhD student in Zoology, so I have access to all the published...

    Display system with parasite

    So this has been a bad time for me and parasite issues. The last 6 months have seen multiple outbreaks in quarantine that have wiped out whole batches, but I seem to have a handle on that now. What is an issue is an outbreak in my display. Display is two 245 gallons side by side with three 100...

    Outbreak in quarantine. What I am doing wrong?

    Issue with that suggestion is one client has a 6000 gallon artificial reef. Tried many times using their 200 gallon as a qurantine. I just can't be there daily so it doesn't work well if something goes wrong.

    Outbreak in quarantine. What I am doing wrong?

    Not a store owner, but a business owner. I own and run a maintenance business which makes it necessary for me to quarantine fish for clients. Most of my clients are pretty hands off so I need to quarantine myself to limit the possibility of introducing disease into any of the display systems...

    Outbreak in quarantine. What I am doing wrong?

    I also found an article on Ultimate reef referenced by many on these forums that says treat brooklynella and uronema with metronidazole with a 34mg/l dose (single dose generally effective) which comes out to 1.85 grams per 10 gallons. You mention 12 hr dosing regimen, I can do that also if it is...

    My new 700 gallon system build

    I added a new skimmer to the sump a couple of days ago. I have been using ASM skimmers for a very long time now (I swear when I bought my first one they actually were sold under a different name). I have tried many others on my own and on customer tanks, but always go back to ASM for quality...

    My new 700 gallon system build

    This system has been a long time coming. I bought the tanks when I bought my house three years ago, but the wife told me that I couldn't set them up until the basement was finished. She knew once they were up that I wouldn't be very motivated to finish the rest of the basement. I am a PhD...

    Felicia's Lionfish Mixed Reef 40B

    I love predator reefs. I saw your stock list and am surprised you haven't had losses with the clowns. Even at the small sizes I would have thought the clowns would be food with all those lions. Beautiful tank and execution. Fish look great too.
