One thing I don't see is a refractometer.
Is there another efficient way to determine salinity that I don't know about?

Okay so here is an update on all of the supplies left behind.
Let me know what to keep and what to chuck. It seems like there are a lot of supplements and additives here, my philosophy with tanks is...

I'm so glad you didn't experience the worst case scenario here. Good luck revamping your heater setup.

Cliff in the event that we decide to go reef instead of FOWLR, will that lighting suffice? Or is that something that would need to be upgraded?

And here is the only picture I could get of the cute little clown fish. She always hangs out on this side of the tank right up by the glass until she sees you coming. Then she darts into her rocks....

Next up is the stuff I found in the adjacent laundry room, it looks like a chiller and a large power supply.

Yay we are in!
Here is the obligatory picture of our gigantic moving mess.
I'm not tearing the tank apart just yet as the former homeowner is coming over tomorrow to give us a tour of how...

Cliff that would be amazing if I could get rid of that fluval because I have been needing a second canister filter for my freshwater tank. Score!

I'm so antsy!
So the previous homeowner was supposed to be moved out by the first, but they called us yesterday and told us that they had completely cleared all of their things out of the lower...

That made me lol.
Okay so its final, all paperwork is signed and the house is official.
Also the current homeowner asked if we could arrange a time for my dad and I to come over and he would like...

I always swore I would never have facebook, then when we had kids I went ahead and started one up so our family across the country could see pictures and updates....now I'm full blown...

They didn't address it in the movie, but the sequel comes out this year. Finding Nemolita: An Aquatic Gender Identity Crisis.

I knew as well because it seems to me like I've read that clownfish schools (or communities I guess) always have 1 female. Then when she dies the most dominant male morphs into a female. Pretty...

Yeah the contracts are being finished up right now so I'm pretty sure it is a done deal. Both parties are amicably agreed to the details. It could still go sideways, but I don't see that happening...

Cliff that makes sense that this current homeowner would have some sort of automatic topoff system.

The Microsoft house just cause it's all high tech haha
07-23-2015, 11:17 PM
It just occurred to me that I should call it the Microsoft house
07-23-2015, 11:17 PM
Yeah it's a majorly teched out house. In fact the entire house has piping that runs through all the floors so the floors are heated from underneath with hot water. The bathrooms have towel racks that...

Hey guys, on the 7th picture I posted in the thread (Yeah it's sideways, sorry) that shows that kind of y-shaped pipe. If you look behind it there is a white canister and it looks like there could...

Yes! Eat them dead!

That might be something to consider Sandz, but unfortunately we won't know water params for a week.
This tank is so behind on maintenance I worry about what sorts of critters I'm going to find when...

Very true about keeping the clown fish. Sounds like cycling with fish, makes everything longer and more complicated.
Alright well I will get my research and video watching underway!
07-23-2015, 03:48 PM
I'm really excited to get this project under way (especially with someone else's money) haha.
I haven't had a chance to watch Sandz video series or read Cliff's link yet, but as...
