Are you worried about aggression from the Sohal? you already have a powder in there and planning for Achilles?
Did you search RTAW Reefpedia B4 asking your question?

the plan was to put the achilles with the sohal in a large holding tank together.
im planning for a battle of some sort , i will have a divider in there for a few weeks first.
i was going to have a few chromies in the mix as distraction .
my sohal is quite tame now .
time will tell , may need to change tactics

I saw Eastwood had some Achilles but can't be positive how big. Asquith had a Chevron the other day which was pretty small (4-5cm).

Williamstown Aquariums consistently get good fish and he ships airport to airport no problems.

You've done some work on your scape alright! Is it still to solid for you from side to side?

Got mine Achilles from Pete at 100% reef safe. He has a few at the moment I think and ships so I would send him an email.

hi All ,
I appreciate the search and rescue party for the missing fish quota.


I just rang EASTWOOD AQUARIUMS and they sold them both yesterday , $550.00 each OUCH !!!

id prefer to buy them from a LFS , would like to see the health of the fish im buying .

I have never purchased from an online dealer so unsure of condition of the live stock and or DOA policy.

if you have had good or bad experience please let me know ,

thanks
Nick

looks like my teco tc20 chiller cant cope with the work load .
I have the unit in the garage and exhaust fans to expel the heat discharged form the chiller.
The fans are set up with thermostatically controlled switch gear set at 28deg C .
The ambient temp still high and the heat exchanger not able to provide enough thermal wash off .
Looks like im on the hunt for a Teco TC 60 or similar .
Another big expense i didn't need right now .

The problem is the ambient temp still high and the heat exchanger not able to provide enough thermal wash off .
I technically could get away with a tc30, however due to the location of the chiller and no possibility of an external relocation
i believe the TR/C 60 ,with an ambient temp at 30c will pull down to 25c. That's what the spec state
This seems a solution to explore .
Ducted air con in the fish room was also considered with bleed off from another zone .
This may be necessary as well due to the other tanks in the room and the humidity content .

hi , i had it lazer cut from one of our clients . C AND J Sheetmetal fabrications 1 waterloo st Bennetts Green NSW.
its 1.5mm 316 stainless cut from a full sheet.
lots of wastage unless you get other items cut out as well.
not sure of the cost as it was part of a deal but it would have to be 300-400 ish
anyone with a flat bed lazer setup could do it .
Do not use stainless from china , its not 100% pure.
I have experience this first hand and have been told the same from others in the trade .

i have to agree with Cody , its a good way to dress it up and it looks the business IMO.
It also covers up any sins along the way, I had one or two !

As much as I would love it, I can't justify $350(ish) when I could get a picture frame done for < $150.

Sooo many house/tank expenses recently

another day in the office, i managed to relocate the RO system . It was bothering me for a while where it was.
I now have more room under my tank for a break out box for the filter sock plenum.
This will house 4 filter socks at 4inch each, this may change to 7inch depending on amount of room i need.

Made an interesting discovery today , tank has been leaking low wattage ac power into the tank.
I made the discovery by accident, i was moving corals and felt a tingling sensation on my arm.
I thought nothing of it the first time ,but then it happened again .
immediately i got the volt meter out and set it to VAC and tested the tank for stray voltage .
My suspicions were right. there was 21vac in the tank.
I made a temporary grounding probe out of some titanium i had . this was earthed out to a power socket.
Im in the process to buy a commercially available product next week.

Well i purchased a 1 hp TECO TC60 with 3 x 400 watt heaters and uv.
The thing is a beast , stands at 60cm tall 58 cm depth and 40cm wide .
Now i need a new location for it .

im running it with a eheim compact 3000 pump at 3/4 volume at this stage .

I was told the hobby was expensive but i ignored it and didn't tell my better half.

I still haven't purchased my RE pumps yet, ouch!!!

Holy Camoloy!!! now that's a beast!!

Well all i can say " Global Warming , bring it on "

I'm ready now.

the RE pumps are going to be the real test of the relationship.

hang on i can hear her say we need some renos "yes dear ".

I can switch the UV on and off when ever i want . i have my main external UV which is 55watt Lagunna as well .

I have decided that the Aqua rays were to bulky on the rack and hard for me to move them around .
Good leds but need something that had more control features .
I Purchased Pacific sun ,Pandora S 2x145W LED panels and 4x39W T5 hybrid fixture
I have 3 units , 1 for the frag tank and 2 for my 8 footer .
they look the part , time will tell .
will post pic soon
cheers

:bow: 3 Pandora units?????? and your worrying about the RE order lol

the S comes with the SMT led chips arrangement doesn't it? my Pac Sun has the conventional rectangle arrangement which seems to get a bit of separation or "discoing" with the red and green led's.

i wish i had the choice again as i definitely would of gone the Pandora over the Hyperion led only fixture for SPS.

Yeah I know , the pandoras did hurt but the last few months hit me hard.
The RE shipment is fast approaching 5k
Every thing I'm picking is 5k
When am I going to get a break .
I still need heaps of corals

Yeah true but at least your buying quality equipment. Your future outlay should be minimal....

How's the rescape going, are you going to leave it or have another crack at it?

Coral wise what are you thinking, going give SPS a go with those beastly pandora's?
