Aquarium Related Classifieds : Apex+2 Wave Pumps

Author: Krazie4Acans
Subject: Apex+2 Wave Pumps
Posted: May 22 2019 at 9:57am

Are you willing to break it up and sell parts separately?
Is this the new silve and orange square apex with WiFi capability or the older classic? Do you have pictures of any of it? The furom was updated yesterday and picture uploads should be working much better now. We are still tracking down an issue that causes an error but if you get the error just try uploading the picture again and it should work the second time.
I'm mostly interested in the WAV's

Aquarium Related Classifieds : Apex+2 Wave Pumps

About five months ago I bought an Apex system with four probes (salinity, pH, ORP, temp) and two wave makers and the fluid flow module for about $1250 on Bulk Reef Supply. It worked very well, definitely made the system so much more stable and easy to manage. I'm selling the aquarium and will be selling the Apex system as well. I'd take $850 for sure, but if I don't get any takers, I'd be open to other offers. Message me with questions.

Aquarium Related Classifieds : 180 Gallon + Inhabitants

Subject: 180 Gallon + Inhabitants
Posted: May 22 2019 at 12:03am

I have a running 180 gallon tank for sale with tons of live rock covered in kenya tree and green star polyps. It's a super cool tank for fish and cool critters, but not one I'd suggest for serious corals or reefing, as there are some majano anemones in there. There is sand/crushed coral substrate and a number of fish, including a yellow tang, blue tang, clownfish, filefish and a few others. It includes LED lights with timers (cheap China version, seems to grow softies), return pump, sump, new $500 skimmer and all the other stuff it needs to run and maintain a healthy little system. Dimensions are 6'x2'x2' and has a wood stand. This has literally been running for 10+ years. I bought it three years ago from someone that had it for 7+ years. This thing is big and a pain to move. I paid an aquarium company around $300 to move it (Aquatropics I think) and it was definitely worth it. I'm mostly looking to get the creatures a good new home and find someone willing to move the tank, as I'm currently out of state and can't help. I'm asking $350 OBO. I paid $1000 for it three years ago and just put in the new skimmer, so not a bad deal, even after paying to move it. I've got an Apex system on with with wave pumps I'm selling separately, but I'll make a deal if you want to buy both. Message me with questions or if you'd like to make an offer.

Regular instant ocean or reef crystals?
What are the target numbers you would like for your tank? 
A 3 gallon water change would not be able to reduce mag numbers from 1800 to 1600 unless that is a 70+% water change on your tank. I would definately question the accuracy of the first test. One thing I do when I get a really weird test number is to immediately test again to see if I get the same number. That usually tells me if I need to do something or not.


I think the test was off the first time but I did 2 other tests with a new test kit and got 1600. My tank is 13.5 gallons and I did a 3 gallon water change. I’m not dosing and yes it’s regular instant ocean. However, I did use some rock and water from a tank I tore down to help with the cycle. I’m assuming that tank was off on their levels. Today is my 50% water change day so I’m going to retest after that settles. I just want the 3 to balance out so that’s my target.

Aquarium Related Classifieds : FS : Bunch of Stuff for 100$

Subject: FS : Bunch of Stuff for 100$
Posted: May 20 2019 at 9:08pm

100$ takes it all ... Only catch is you have to take all of it.
I am in Ogden.

I'll check back ... If you want it, post to the thread. Goes to the first person to post.

No idea what works and what doesn't .. It all worked when I boxed it up.

I used to have some tanks a while back ... I found a bunch of stuff in my garage while doing some spring cleaning. I had saved it thinking I might want to setup a small tank again some day. I dont think that will ever happen.

I am not going to list it all out... Here are some pictures. There is also some other misc stuff. Sand, tubing, float valve, etc.

Are you dosing or running a reactor?What brand of salt are you using?Do you have snails and other inverts in your tank?Are you seeing something bad going on in your tank that you are trying to solve?Do you have a target range that you are trying to hit for each of those values?
Sometimes reacting to a number is more of a problem than the actual number.
Instant Ocean. No Dosing or Reactor. I have 10 hermits and 4 snails. Nothing bad going on just concerned it was high. I did a 3 gallon water change and retested it. It dropped to normal so I'm not going to overthink it. I might have did the Mag test incorrectly the first time.
