My buddy has had his 28 JBJ Nanocube HQI for 4 years. No water changes in the last 2, original bulb even. I suspected he wasn't really feeling the hobby these days (years) so I suggested we work out a deal and here we are. I drove to his place with nothing remaining from the hobby except an empty 5g pail which I did bring!

Picked up the tank Saturday and by early Sunday it was cleaned and on a new stand! I recently did wainscotting in the livingroom so the new stand needed to match. I'm still on a white paint kick

It's sorta funny using a refractometer with someone else's initial written on the box lol. The tank included 2 clowns, a 6-line I rehomed, lots of torch coral, some frogspawn, featherduster, boatloads of shrooms and aiptasia.

Game on?

It's nice!

I like those tanks. One day when I downgrade I might do a similar setup myself.

Things I need to do (I'm posting here so you guys can pretend to care lol):

- Replace bulb
- Get me some ROX 0.8
- Replace membranes and filters for ro/di (this initial fill is 100% tapwater)
- get new airstone for the 'skimmer' <-- Geez
- Find replacement for my Ranco temp controller which I borrowed back for now
- Continue praying yesterday's top temp of 82F is not exceeded before summer comes and we hopefully get central AC!

I couldn't help but LOL in the office when saw a new thread from you. How long will this one last?

Wanna frag a head of that Torch! Looks like you got a few extra!

Good to see you back.. I'm going to have to check out your 392.. I don't recall that build.

I honestly think a tank of this size is begging for LED's of some kind. (I say this being a card carrying member of the Losers without LED club). But seriously, a halide over 28 gallons in 2012 is kind of silly.

Vertex packages ROX 0.8 now and you can get it from everyone's favourite tank builder (new and improved formulation now with moar Newfie content too)

Hey, don't knock the counter current skimmers. Pound for pound they are still among the most effective skimmers (yeah, replacing airstones and airpumps is a drag)

See above re. LED's

There is aiptasia galore in here so not sure you want a frag. There is a smaller 4 head piece I could trade though?

The pictures are no longer there for the 392 I will have to dig around to find them in my photo library some day. It was a big ugly tank nuff said!
