I have had 3 different heaters from Coralvue and all 3 have gone bad. Not sure about the company anymore.

They are sending a new pump with return label to return the old. Hopefully all goes well.

I don't want to start rocking the boat here, but I had a problem with my skimmer pump as well. Basically it would slow down significantly after a day of use. I would reset it but then it would slow down again the next day. Slowing down I mean basically running at half speed or like setting 3. I sent the pump back in like you did and they sent me a new one. Been working perfectly ever since. I hope we are experiencing random manufacturing defects and not a widespread problem.

Can't say I've heard lots of issues with that pump but then I haven't been looking either. What kind of warranty do they provide? If I ever end up replacing my ATB skimmer on my display tank it seems like there are lots of advantages to going with a DC pump but its hard to ignore the three year warranty on the Bubble Blasters.

Never had the reduced power issue. Great for 6 or 7 months and then mysteriously dead... No hum, nothing.

For mine I've noticed I need to keep the cap on one of the two air intakes on the air silencer. If I had both intakes open, the bubbles would not get chopped up fine enough and it was too turbulent. Might be worth playing around with the amount of air getting pulled. More was not better in my case at least.

I have the older model Reef octopus 150 with the slip tube, the old pump worked great, the new one not so much. I only have 1 opening in the silencer, and you could sometimes hear the sucking.

The surge is up and running. Has been for about six months or so I would guess. Works great. I don't see how it could ever fail.

I feel like I'd like to add more life to the sandbed. Years ago I bought some nice Marshall Island live rock and had some nice critters and fauna in the 75. Seems most people are afraid of live rock these days, but I just think the natural ecosystem is appealing. Any thoughts? Add life or stay sterile? I always liked seeing a bristle worm every now and then...

flat worms are the main reason everyone is afraid of live rock now a days. it really comes down to taking a gamble. I wish I had more showing up in my new tank its only been a month and some rock I added was very mature so im hoping to see some of the life I used to have come back but when I was thinking about rock I really considered ordering some very live rock to see what happens.

I've only ever had to deal with the red planaria flat worms and they exploded in my tank. it took a lot of maintenance and 2 wrasses to finally beat that mess and some days I couldn't see how the wrasses could even swim with their stomachs so full lol

Nice job on the access panel and it looks like you re-aquascaped a bit as well.

I wouldn't worry too much about adding some true live rock. There are lots of online vendors that sell small quantities of seed rock to get you some diversity. Whether you buy it locally or online you might want to "quarantine" if for a while to make sure there are no surprises. If its flatworms you're worried about you can always treat the rock with Flat Worm Exit before you add it to your display.

Might be extra work but personally I think its worth it to be able to get more diversity in your tank. That's one of the fascinating parts of a saltwater tank.

I'm actually pondering doing a rescape. Would like Tampa bay saltwater rock, but can't justify the shipping cost.

Tank and wall look awesome.
Live, laugh, love every day. That chance could be gone any minute.

I have been snagging a small bit of rock here and there, different tanks from Waterloo to Fargo, and several different fish stores.

Phil, I agree. The diversity is one of the most fascinating things to me. Korrine, I've been looking and can't seem to justify the cost either. I was thinking 20 pounds of live rubble, but shipping is more than the rock! It's so cold right now too. I figure I'd be better served to wait for a day above freezing at least!

Regarding the pics, I can't get the light exposure right. Either the tank is super bright, or the wall is dark and you can't make it out. Well, you get the general idea anyway.

Sorry, I haven't really done anything since the last pics I posted. Life has been busy and funds spent on other priorities. Tank has maintained quite well though. Low maintenance. The most annoying thing I deal with is a gravity feed auto top off with kalk. The float valve gets clogged shut with calcium build up... Soaking in acid right now

I'm sure I'll just part it out. Most aren't looking for a full setup I get that. I'm not giving everything away but will put everything out at a low cost. I'm sure I'll have some free stuff too for anyone who wants to buy. First to go will have to be the live rock, yellow tang, and a couple chromis. Not trying to make money so should be some good deals to be had.
