That went better than expected. After 7 hours of play, we split the spot with 4 players. I had the most chips, so I cashed out for 1st. Time to order my protein skimmer for the 180. I've decided on the ASM G-3. I found a great price on AquaCave: ASM G-3 Protein Skimmer* - AquaCave.

The ASM G-3:

I plan to order the mag1800 pump today also. The best price i've found the mag1800 is from Mag-Drive Water Pumps | Water Pumps | Water Pumps & Power Heads | Aquarium - ThatPetPlace.com.

Wow! Last night really helps with this project. I expected to wait a month or so before ordering this equipment.

I decided to order my heater as well. Shipping was free on orders over $150, so i figured i'd take advantage of it. I choose the Finnex 800w Deluxe Titanium Heating Tube with the HC800U Electronic Temperature Controller. Here is the pic:

This order should arrive sometime this week, which will be perfect timing. Next weekend I should be able to start on the 180 sump.

Luck? Pasfur? I guy like this does not leave anything to chance on luck. Research & experience are his lucky cards. Glad you won at poker as we'd hate to wait a month before you were able to order this equipment. Maybe another scheduled poker game is in order?

He must be an experienced poker player as well as an experienced fishkeeper. :)

i prob. would have went with two 300watt jager heaters.
with all the pumps running, lights, and so forth that prob. will be more then enough.

Yeah, i think a single 500 watt would have been sufficient. But it was only $10 more for the 800 watt, so I went with the manufacturer recommendation.

Normally I would have used 2 x 300 watt heaters, if they were your standard Visa Therm, etc. But with the reputation the Finnex Deluxe Titanium has, I felt the risk was low. Some of the less expensive heaters are prone to stick, which is why I often recommend two smaller watts.

ONE MORE DAY!!!!

The 180 is being delivered tomorrow night. YES!!! I also checked the delivery schedule on my skimmer, etc. Everything should arrive tomorrow. Perfect timing!

I will be getting the 58 bowfront set up sometime this week as well. I will start new threads on both, under the pictures and video area.
