  1. Today
  2. Will also give a +1 to Matteo. Super nice guy, we had a miscommunication but our deal worked out and was fair in the end. I appreciate his flexibility and working with me.
  3. All corals sold. Appreciate everyone who reached out!
  4. if you make it down to Salem, I have a milwaukee that I dont need. shoot me a message if interested
  5. While I save up for my apex setup, I've decided itd be a good idea to get a ph controller on my calcium reactor so I can keep things a little more consistent and stable. Anyone got anything? Have a 48" aquatic life hybrid fixture I can trade, or just pay cash
  6. I just wanted to say what a great transaction and encounter it was with Matteo. He was a very nice guy and his tank was AMAZING! THANKS MATTEO The torch is nice and happy!!
  7. No thats from cuttlefish... This is matteos...and a 24k HG Ipicked up yesterday as well...it was an amazing torch day!
  8. The LA Fish Guys video was definitely one of the videos I watched over and over, I ended up buying some Mighty Mesh and it worked flawlessly. It took some practice, you definitely have to start with a low grit and work your way up, I started with 800 and worked my way up to 12,000. I didn't have any really deep scratches though. I took my time and worked each area, the tough part I noticed was deciding if it was ok to start the next grit but I thought it ended up 100 percent better than it looked at the beginning. I finished it off with Novus and an acrylic buffing pad. Since I've buffed it I've had a couple scratches happen and I've buffed them out with my algae free Hammerhead and some mighty mesh and it's actually pretty easy, it gives me peace of mind knowing I can just buff them out under water now. One thing I also learned you sand your previous work away with the next step sandpaper so taking your time and making sure you completely get rid of the previous sanding with the next grit is important or you'll end up with fine scratches, and that means you didn't completely remove the previous work. Kind of a pain to learn but the end is worth it, I've never done anything like that but it's nice knowing I'll be able to keep it scratch free for as long as I decide to keep it, having this tank has made me really like acrylic tanks. No worrying about seams bursting or resealing over time like with glass tanks. A lot of people use regular wet dry sandpaper and run a hose on low to keep the tank wet and just do it outside, it seems to work great. If your tank is up and running though and you don't want to drain it it's definitely worth it to buy the mighty mesh, I decided to drain it and use the mighty mesh so I could use my Hammerhead. I didn't have much in that tank at the time so it wasn't a big deal to just move it to a different tank temporarily. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  9. Lol that's why I had to stop putting corals on the sand bed, they would end up buried or in a cave and I'd end up having to rescue them. Eventually ended up finding a new home for my Goby and Pistol Shrimp pair, I loved those guys but it was nice being able to put corals on the sand again lol Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  10. Nice! Did you get that torch from Matteo? Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  11. If the ruler is that old, we should probably calibrate it to make sure it hasn't shrunk over time, giving you inflated measurements...🤣
  12. That’s the beauty of getting old Brad. Even when we do one thing that could cause major damage, we happen to accidentally do another thing that caused it to be relatively ok. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I love that I appear to be the only one here that still has the official blue plastic ruler that Kim handed out during one of these competitions several years back Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Seeking Hydra 26HD power supply for a friend
  15. Took a trip from Washington to Portland and got to stop at Cuttlefish for the first time....i gotta say its a great place and the guys were amazing!! Picked up a torch and found a new reason to drive 6 hours everyonce in a while hahahah Thanks again guys!
  16. Please close! Thanks everyone! Going to grow out the Lobo it's got great colors
  17. Yesterday
  18. Starting to encrust the super glue and maybe 1/16"ish of growth. I love how fuzzy these are!
  19. I was rushing into things and lost mine too. Was changing too many variables - next time!
  20. One yellow mellow bounce left! I will accept $100 for it. Probably the size of a 50 cent piece or bigger. He's a liability to have because my pistol shrimp has a habit of stealing expensive things that aren't nailed down and shoving it in his little cave.
  21. Oh my gosh, if this wasn't such a family friendly forum, I would have a great come-back to the size/perception theory you are advancing. Don't be lobbing me softballs! Sent from my SM-G928P using Tapatalk
  22. I've actually had a heater split on me in my first tank, thank goodness I didn't have much in it yet. On another tank I had a heater get stuck in the on position and cooked my tank, lost almost everything that time.. I now use the Inkbird or other types of temp controllers in my tanks for at least some peice of mind and it helps keep my temp constant so that's a huge plus too. Another thing I've started doing is spreading corals throughout my tanks so if something does happen (fingers crossed it doesn't) I'll have the same corals in different tanks. After that crash I don't trust any heater... Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  23. @reefnjunkie Do you have any other Apex modules with unused Temperature ports? I added a 2nd temp probe to my system so I don't rely on a single Apex probe. Temperature ports are included on the PM1, PM2, PM3, and ASM modules.
