TOYS!!!!!!!!!

Post by plnelson on Thu Jan 21, 2010 10:28 pm

Got a bunch of goodies in today. Can't wait to get playing.



This is the Pukani rock from BRS. I'd gotten a piece of it before from SWE, and this is very nice.



I ordered 10 lbs and it is easily the same size as 15-20 lbs of just about any other type of rock.

Rock is pretty nice looking. Whats in the smaller box thats open? Hammerhead scraper? Danreefs you ganna use a aqualifter? If its for top off don't see why you would need such an exspesive pump.

It's the Piranha. I only need the smaller one.

Good point on the ATO.

I really like the reactor. It just a 10" filter canister, with a modified DI cartraidge. Very simple and easy to use design.

I can't get over how light this Pukani rock is. I just put it in my curing tank, and a piece of rubble about an inch long is floating.

Floating rock? That is funny.

Have you ever compared homemade LR with the real stuff? I am thinking of custom making my structure with plumbing inside rather than drilling and pinning.

And separate but in the picture, will you have "Reef Chili" for an order and do you take Paypal? We think we are a go for relaunch of the Duluth Club and I was thinking this would make a great door prize.

Whoa Dan! 11 feet. I was looking at putting a tank in the basement and routing pipes up to the main floor. That takes a pretty potent pump. But there are good head calculators and ebay describes their power output. Seemed like it was only going to be 50-60 bucks.

Danreefs is wanting a top off pump not return pump Nanook. that is a ways to pump top off and your right only 30 in on the aqualifter. No room for a top off tank in the stand?

I am getting ready to experiment with DIY rocks in the next couple weeks. I am doing a tank build with a 55. I have the plumbing roughed in and I want to build a LR structure to hide the plumbing. Film at eleven.
