If they can beat the Pats at home next week it would be a miracle. I don't see it happening but I can always hope for it.
With ammonia at 8, ya, it is going to take a while, so you could wait a week or 2 before testing for nitrites I would imagine.
Mesh tops are very easy to make, go to Home Depot and get the screen frame material and the roller to push the rubber into it. Only power tool I used was a jigsaw the cut the frame to size/shape and I made a very nice mesh screen top on my first attempt for my 55G.

Good to see you taking another crack at it. It can get discouraging sometimes. I had almost given up on my current build due to dinoflagellates overrunning it, as well, but managed to get them under control by letting the tank pH swing freely (which required less aeration) during peak photosynthesis hours. Will be keeping an eye out on this thread and hoping for the best luck this time around.

reefgeek.com has direct replacement parts for the ATI sunpower, If you want i can order what you need. You should try and find the clips for your solona, I'm not sure how we're gonna get that tank suicide proof.

Suicide PRONE is okay. Proof is a little to much to ask for. id rather you look at the light next time your around to see what ya htink needs to be done then we can go ahead and order it.
Amph, im so sorry for you dude.. i hope you win the fight that i simply just could not!

They have a BSJ on Divers Den today. $100 though. They used to be $150 all over the place but I have seen them now at my LFS for $50 as a normal price for them. They are not that hard to get so your LFS should be able to get you one easily and it would be a lot cheaper than Divers Den. Actually, looking at the picture more closely, the DD one looks a little too skinny for my taste, I wouldn't risk it myself.
They have had some McCoskers Flasher Wrasses the last few days as well.. I REALLY REALLY like those fish, just can't keep them in the tank myself (but haven't tried since jump proofing my tanks)
