    Booster pump

    I just installed a booster pump and it’s running continuously. Is that normal? Without the pump the pressure is already 60 psi so it’s not bad. I can tune it to the pressure I want with the Allen screw but the pump still runs. I thought that once it reaches its set pressure it would turn off and...

    How many gallons does our club have?

    I’m curious how many gallons of saltwater does the club have in their tanks. Include your dt, sumps, and frag tanks. Don’t include sw holding barrels though. Just add up all you have and add it to the running tally. I’ll start and since I don’t have a tank set up right now the math is easy. 0

    Slowly getting closer to that new build

    I’m finishing our basement so I decided to reinforce the area where the fish tank will sit above it before the drywall goes on. I added a couple extra steel I beams. From what it looks like, each one on its own will hold about 12,000 lbs. on the low end for the span they make. Next step I...

    Drain or no drain

    I’m planning out my next build and I’ve seen some custom tanks with a hole drilled low on the tank so that you can plumb it for a drain for easier water changes. I’ve always been weary of it though since it’s a possible point of failure. What do you guys think? If you have one do you use it? If...

    So I had an idea

    I was thinking of how I could do something cool and unique with my next tank (if I can persuade my wife). My thought was to have a suspended rock structure that would attach to the back wall and hang in the middle of the tank. Then I would run it bare bottom and have one light above (like...

    Free rodi water

    I’ve got somewhere between 15 and 30 gallons of rodi water that I made but never used. It’s been sitting in my barrel for probably 2 months but it’s free to whoever wants it. Otherwise it will be used to water my lawn with. I’m in south San Jose, 95123.

    Urchin turning white

    I got a long spine urchin about 6 months ago and it was jet black in the LFS. The next day I noticed some white banding on a few of the spines and then over the next few weeks it got much more pronounced. My picture isn’t uploading right now so I’ll have to try again later. He seems...

    I'm moving

    Well, some time over the next year we'll be moving to Colorado. I bring it up mostly because I was slated to be the next BAR president. I've already let @Coral reefer know so that my replacement can be found. I don't know if there will need to be a new vote or what the formal procedure will be...

    Achilles tang popeye

    Over the past few weeks my Achilles tang's eye has been getting progressively worse. It started out just being kind of cloudy and has become more protruded. Right at the end of the video you can see how extended it is. None of the other fish are showing any of the same symptoms and he's...

    You know you're a Reefer when...

    When did you guys feel it was official? Any good stories? I knew I was a Reefer when I was in the shower one day and out of the corner of my eye, I saw something pink on the wall and my first unfiltered thought was, "oh good, I've got some coralline algae growing". It turned out to be nail...
