BRS just uploaded all the MACNA presentations from this year's event in Las Vegas. Here's my presentation, which focuses on the decision-making process and the types of equipment you'll want to consider for that next build.
The Work Tray is a product I designed to allow you to work over your aquarium. Simply grab some 1" PVC pipe and slide it through the holes to suspend this tray over the water, and move it closer or further away while working on your aquarium.
The Work Tray is 14.5" long x 11" wide x 3.25" tall. It has legs built in to avoid scuffing up the underside when placed on a counter top.
Benereef is a plankton-sized food to feed your corals two to three times a week. Use a 1/4 teaspoon per 25-gallons of tank water volume. Mix up Benereef with a small amount of tank water and let it rest for 5 minutes before broadcast feeding your reef.
This rack is in perfect condition, unused. Only one in stock.
This frag rack has fifty-five 1/2" holes. Dimension of rack is 18" long x 8" wide x 2" tall. Rounded corners, this rack is designed to stand in a small growout system or to display frags at an event (like a frag swap) in a small aquarium.
Phosban-L is a new lanthanum-based product from Two Little Fishies.
Follow the directions carefully on the bottle to quickly reduce phosphate levels in an aquarium. The manufacturer recommends using a 10-micron filter sock with this product, and suggests dripping this product into the sock gradually over a period of hours or even days.
Reef Flux is a fluconazole treatment that is effective against certain fungal fish infections. It contains no fillers or additives, and is lab tested for purity.
Reef Flux is an aquarium fluconazole treatment that is effective against fungal fish infections. To avoid unintended nutrient spikes it should not be used in tanks with refugiums containing Bryopsis or Caulerpa.
I've been running an AquariumPlants Carbon Doser on my calcium reactor since 2010. At the time I thought it was expensive, but I was tired of buying a new regulator annually. They were costing me about $100 a year in replacement gear, so this one seemed like a better choice since it came with a three year warranty, and apparently I got free shipping too.
Tank alkalinity has been somewhat low but I couldn't figure out why. My calcium reactor was full of media, the CO2 tank was full of gas, everything looked right. That's when I realized I was missing the point, that the pH measurement inside the reactor was not where it belonged. Normally it's between 6.1 to 6.5 depending on my mood, so to speak. The pH controller showed that it was 7.5 and my brain didn't click, that it wasn't 6.5... dumb mental error.
I wanted to share this item with y’all, because we all learn and relearn things daily. I’ve been testing alkalinity like clockwork, but the tank has been running lower than I like. I adjusted the black knob on this controller down slightly, but the number on the screen has pretty much been sitting at 7.5 (pH) for days. I thought that was odd that the number never changed, so I investigated further this afternoon.
