75g Re-Build
« on: January 09, 2019, 19:19:41 »
Well, I hated to do it but it was necessary. Tank and sump have been cleaned and sterilized. Letís hope this rebuild is as successful as my first 10 months were originally. Iím reverting everything back to June 2016 when everything was thriving.

Lol! It always kills me when people find something out of the ordinary in a picture! I picked those two clamps up at a dollar store a couple years ago. They arenít painted, theyíre molded in those colors! Way to spot em lol

Thanks to Nbehnken for modding and selling his T5/LED Hybrid fixture. Got my 4 Prime HDís installed and the fixture hung tonight. Still need to replace the bulbs but waiting for Aquatic Life to send me the new bulb clips....for free!
I love the fixture, itís a great combo!

Looks good Jesse.  I really like the addition of t5s to leds.  Leds tend to shadow a lot and the t5s really fill in the shaded areas.

First batch of new fish for the 75. They look big in my 29g QT but the biggest fish is the Yellow Tang measuring in at a whopping 2.5Ē to 3Ē! Paul @ Gerbers said all these fish have been at the store for at least two weeks. Thatís a big reason I went with these particular ones. I know the Naso will outgrow my tank, but Iíve never had this type and wanted to try one out. With my rock work as open as it is, it shouldnít be much trouble catching him in a year or two.

The yellow I got from gerberís has been super healthy and happy. Same for the orange shoulder but that had been there three months until I picked it up.

Honestly, Iíve only had a couple fish from Gerbers die on me out of years of buying fish there. I also have to say this was the least painful experience that Iíve ever had because I took the salinity down to 1.021 prior to heading to Gerbers. The fish were actually at 1.022. After about an hour they are swimming around and pecking at the rocks like theyíve been in there forever. The Naso even drastically changed color. So Iím optimistic that all these guys are going to do well.

Heís a cool, peaceful fish. He does pick on the snails a bit. Never seen him actually get one out of its shell yet. Mostly just knocks them off the rocks. He also keeps the tang gang inline. No fighting....

Tank update. Some frags are struggling due to improper placement. Most are doing great. Have a couple experiments going on with a couple of the big frags I got from AV99. Wanting to see what different PAR will do with coloration.

Jesse, your tank is looking really nice! You got a really nice grab from AV99 - I got some frags from Tim back in March, great quality!

Cheers Rick
