Yeah! I’m always scared to snap an impeller. The gyre pump impeller is kind of messed up, skimmer impeller is slightly cracked too. Not from me I hope. I’ll need to get those replaced. They seem to work fine so far.Those nasty fish are healthy ones!
And caution during cleaning. That's when things get broken....
That's a dream tank routine!Hi. I am getting a puppy in two weeks. Goodbye world...
Tank is still running well. I still manage water changes every week. Nothing has died, things are growing, nothing new added. Ca/Alk intake increased by 2x in the last couple of months. FTS looks the same, so I won't post it =)
For the past few months, I only touch my tank once a week to do water changes: clean glass, clean skimmer cup, change the water, test alk/ca, adjust dosing pumps if needed. Pretty much cruise control.
I know. It's incredible how easy this tank has been (knock on wood) ever since I was hit with dinos.That's a dream tank routine!
Haha I too am getting a pup soon! Pick it up Saturday from riverside (ugh not looking forward to the drive. It’s an Alaskan klee kaiOh, I'm getting an 8 week old White Swiss Shepherd from a very reputable breeder in Oregon. Who here has pups? How f'd am I? I can't wait...
Oh nice. A little husky that doesn't have the crazy sled pulling energy!! I've heard of them, but I don't know if I've ever seen one in real life. Looks like it'll be a great pup. Congrats. I'm picking up my white swiss shep on Sunday, from near Albany Oregon, the drive is going to be pretty bad too, though I get to go through some beautiful scenery (stopping at Mt Shasta, Crater Lake, etc.). The good thing is, my sister lives up near there in Eugene, so I have some more to look forward too. Good luck with your pup! We should compare notes since we'll have both our pups at about the same timeHaha I too am getting a pup soon! Pick it up Saturday from riverside (ugh not looking forward to the drive.

Quiet, pretty much unobtrusive. My SPS are all alive now that dinoflagellates are gone =) The flow isn't as turbulent, but otherwise I think it does a good job. Much less dead spots than I would've gotten otherwise. If I did it again, I'd still go with the Gyre.Kinetic, I’ve been following your thread for a while and I’m pretty much setting up the same set up. I was wondering what you thought of the Maxspect Gyre XF130 on that tank. I’ve never owned a gyre and I’m intrigued by their design.
Ah yes, I do have a magnet cleaner but I don't use it as much as I should. Now I Just put on some vinyl gloves and let that clown go to town on it.Art try a magnet cleaner so your hands don't need to be in water as much. My ocellaris in my desktop 6 gal attacks me too, but never a had bite...more of a surprise always not pain. Have fun with the dog.
