    Hey Mark,

    Great video! Have you been working out?

  • Byron says:

    Nice comedy Mark : )

  • Tyler…I’ve been hitting the juice pretty hard over the summer…j/k. I’ve been riding my bike a lot in preparation for a 103 mile ride

  • Gotta mix it up some Byron! All work and no play makes any saltwater tank keeper a dull boy.

  • Adam Baggett says:

    Wow now thats a pump. Little too much for my 70 gal me thinks!

  • Gary Madison says:

    Ok, Mark. That was awesome. But I’m having trouble with the mount of my Minn Kota to the side of my 90 gal tank….and, more problematically, there’s no blade guard, so I lost three tangs and a wrasse so far. OTOH the coral seems to like the blended fish… I’m getting much better polyp extension on the acros.

    Thanks again!

    Great video, looks like you need a little weight gain 3000. j/k John if your looking for a cheaper protein skimmer that works, Eshopps makes a descent skimmer for a great price. thats what i use on my 75gallon reef.

  • Danny…list is $3600 I believe.

  • Sean…check this one out
