An Hour in Water World with New Camera

Reef Tank, Marine Fish, Anthias, Lyretail Anthias

I picked up a new Sony Handycam (HDR-XR260V) for work yesterday and thought I would try it out on the reef tank for an hour. I think it did a pretty good job! Make sure to watch in HD and full screen. 🙂

Reef Octopus Skimmer 1 Year Update

I have had my Reef Octopus 6″ Recirculating Skimmer (DDNW-150-6530B) up and running for a little over a year now. I have to say that it’s worked flawlessly since it was installed (10/2011). It’s still the quietest skimmer I’ve seen. Hopefully someday I can put all the maintenance equipment in a room and not have to look at it, or at least that’s what my wife says. 😉

Bubbles in My Aquarium

Staghorn Acropora slime bubbles

I came home from work the other day and noticed the Automatic Top Off (ATO) did not turn on which caused my sump level to run low thus causing my return pumps to pull in some air.  The tank was pretty full of micro bubbles and lots of coral slime. Soon as I triggered the ATO life was good again.
