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?

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

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.
