    Had some equipments breaking down over the last 2wks after commissioning my tank near to 3yrs.

    1) Circulation pump for my CR, Skimz CM122, Skimz E2000 impeller shaft broken and I have to replace the whole impeller instead of just the shaft cos the inner ceramic ring/bearing to hold the shaft also worn out.

    2) One of my return pump jebao dc9000 halt for the 2nd time in 2wks. Decided to change a new one, Sicce 9.0. Nv did any maintenance work on any of my pumps. Haha.

    [​IMG]

    My dc pump is much more silent compared to it. But it has a 5yr warranty.

    The removed pump I took out for a vinegar dip, rinse with fresh water. After drying, power it out to test again and was running. Guess I’ll keep it as spare. Worried it might halt again.

    My other return pump died during Xmas period. So hv to get another one. Got this jebao acq-10000 as replacement.

    [​IMG]
    Quite powerful and cheap too.

    Also trying this product to kill some remaining dinos in my tank. Supposed to be gentle on tank inhabitants and kill only pest algae and mild Dinos infestation.

    [​IMG]

    Also heard of this method using only fritz monster460 with success to get rid of dinos. Anyone tried this before to get rid of dinos? Need to dump in a big bottle every week for 4-6 weeks until a dinos gone. Basically using bacteria bloom to compete against dinos infestation.

    I realized I didn’t feature some of the sps colonies that I gotten some time back. Here’s some pics together with some randomly taken ones.

    [​IMG]Fosters blue tenuis?

    [​IMG]

    Bought it browned and was told it’s a blue stag but turn out to be bicolor stag. Not very sure it’s actual ID or any fancy name associated with it.

    [​IMG]

    Was bought as a candlelight acro but looked to be some luminous tenuis.

    [​IMG]Was quite bleached but now color look pink.

    [​IMG]

    Aussie loripes with pink polyps. One of my favs!!

    [​IMG]Superman blue tenuis or some called it deep blue tenuis. I like the blue changes according to ur nutrient levels. It gets more pastel or bright light blue when ur nutrients low.

    Hope u guys enjoy it and pls give comments. Thanks.
