    As I fly over our majestic country, I'm amazed at the world we live in. Live video, working, in fusion, of my tank. Fantastic.

    Shocked how many aiptasia are in my pump chamber. Filefish in main display clearly having a positive impact. Are you guys seeing the same?[​IMG]

    Good video! the Neptune return pump looks sleek and nice.

    Regarding aiptasia in the rear pumps chamber, I do not have them. I was super aggressive against aiptasia since the beginning of my S-500. I would suggest you to turn off all pumps, take the pumps out, scrape the aiptasias then pull them out with a net.

    Yes I have this as well. I had peppermint shrimp at one point and no Aiptasia in the display

    Is it called Darwinism or something.........

    Great idea but extremely unlikely to happen! :)

    I now have zero Aips in the DT due to my filefish, but last week I had to delve into the rear chamber and I did notice a lot of smallish whiteish Aips.

    OK -took the first step towards setting up the Potomac Reef Frag System - got a 15 gallon tank from Petco. My plan is to drill it for a bulkhead and drain the bulkhead to the sink. I will take the 6L of water my auto water change throws away every day and dump it into the tank. That should do a 6L water change on a 15g tank every day (granted, it will mix), which hopefully will be enough to let me not have to dose anything to the tank. Going to throw a AI Prime over it set to the same AB+ settings and some flow and hopefully voila. Maybe add a couple of snails after a bit, and start putting the copious frags that I'm generating accidently by cleaning in there, plus backups of the nicer stuff I have. Any thoughts?

    Here are some shots of the project. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Correct drill bit arrives tomorrow. Friday we find out of the tank is tempered. When we start drilling.

    You are making progress! Do your tanks will be connected? that may help your water stability in the frag tank.

    Drilled my first hole in glass. Went great. Didn’t explode!

    Pancho- the frag tank will take my daily auto water change waste of 6L and do a water change with that. It will drain in, and push a corresponding 6L out to the sink. Every day. Via gravity. Hopefully it works!
