Details - it's all about the details

Recently, I cleaned out my Aqua C Ev-200 protein skimmer thoroughly. Once I hooked it up, I capped the little drain line on the collection cup so that I could remove the long piece of hose that was never being used anyway.

Today I became a little more important ;)

Last night at our club meeting, the election to choose the new president for DFWMAS took place. This is the first election in the history of the club, as two people ran for office. The members voted, and I'm the new president. :)

Traded a hammer coral for a suncoral

By: melev | Tags:

A DFWMAS club member traded me his beautiful sun coral for a piece of my Hammer coral. Some might not think that is an equal trade, but as far as I can tell we are both very very happy with our exchange.

That's crazy

My crazy Cleaner Shrimp is hosting in my Rose BTA now. Literally, it stands in the anemone and just hangs out. Amazing.

New corals, new invert

I'm trying to increase the pH in the 55g reeftank, so today I hooked up an airpump in the garage that pushes in "fresh" air into the tank. The outlet of the tubing blows into the intake of the protein skimmer, but I'm not sure if that will make much of a difference.

Routing an existing sump's baffle

By: melev | Tags:

This evening, I pulled out the sump/refugium under the 29g reef to make a couple of alterations. I needed to trim the baffle before the return section about half an inch, to create a slight downhill momentum so the water in the refugium would not tend to stagnate.

Maintenance day

By: melev | Tags:

All the return pumps were cleaned tonight. While working on that, I pulled out the Aqua C Ev-200 protein skimmer and cleaned it thoroughly, because it wasn't pulling out enough junk for the past few weeks.
