  1. Past hour
  2. I bought some live rock off of a fellow reefer here right before I went on a 4 day vacation, and came back to an unexpected surprise! Baby snails (trochus?) and a bunch of little nudibranchs! I think they're vayssierea felis? If you have an excess of spirorbis in your tank and feel like rolling the dice, shoot me a message. Love to give some of these nudis a shot at a better life. Maybe you could pass on small frag or something maybe in return? Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  3. Hopefully that doesn't include a Slimer frag... Yech!
  4. Looks like you have a lot of good info to go on here, swapping into new tanks makes it much easier than breaking one down and re setting it back up again in a new location. As far as transit I would't get too worried as long as things are separated enough and kept a good temperature in the transport vehicle. Just think about when you get fish or corals shipped to your home, that can take way longer than 8 hours and they are just packed in a styrofoam box.
  5. If you contact them they have a quick turn around. I am using mine at the moment 😞
  6. If that causes me to trip and fall into your frag tank, do I get to keep the frags I “accidentally” stuff in my mouth? 🤣
  7. Today
  8. Nothing going on here....😏
  9. my clowns lay eggs continuously, they lay the next batch two days after the last one. I just leave them alone
  10. Hey all, Most people go into panic mode about raising clowns when this happens. I have no intention of doing that. I was caught off guard when my clowns spawned recently. One of them is 11+ years old and the other is around 8 years old. Geriatric clown parents to say the least LOL! This is the first time they ever have, breaking the 8 year dry spell (yikes!). Should I remove the eggs to avoid any nutrient spikes from the inevitable die off? I have several RBTA, will they eat the fry when they hatch? I’ve heard clown parents will even eat them...just wondering if anyone has had any issues leaving them or if they should be removed. My tank is a 45 cube, if it was my future 210 gal tank I would be less concerned about any water quality impact from the die off.
  11. On the officer/moderator forum. Someone needs to promote you! 🤣
  12. When is the next meeting? I haven't seen any announcements.
  13. I will be bagging everything and buying some of those coleman 7 day coolers to move stuff so it stays warm on the drive. I don't think I could keep buckets warm enough for a 7 hour drive. I've got a source for large fish bags, I can't find anything large enough for the rock though. Another question. How do I aerate the water while moving them? Do I not worry about it? Do I get an oxygen tank to blow up the bags before rubber banding them? Is welding oxygen good enough or medical grade? What about those heat packets places like wwc use when they ship stuff, where do I get those? How do I acclimate my rock to new tanks, in a bucket one at a time with a drip. Then transfer right into tank? Then wait a few hours for fish, inverts, corals. Maybe biospira after adding rocks before livestock.
  14. Oh just a hop, skip and a jump. The next meeting is there too if you need more of an excuse. I've been thinking about cruising up there anyways though if you want to go sooner. I appreciate it!
  15. Alright either way works for me , it's all cleaned up and shinny ready to go
  16. I’ve been lucky. There are 3 emeralds in my tank and they’ve never eaten any corals. I see them on corals occasionally like in the photo, but they’re usually looking for algae and move on if they don’t find any. My only complaint is that they aren’t interested in my bubble algae which was the reason I got them. But they’ve done a great job with other types of algae.
  17. How far are you from Wilsonville? I sometimes stop in at All Things Aquarium and could meet you there with some stomatellas. I have more than I know what to do with.
  18. Ahh gotcha, yeah I'm out by hagg lake so I hear you. Sent from my BLU R1 HD using Tapatalk
  19. Too bad I live on the moon in relation to most of the club. I might have to take you up on that at the next meeting though!
  20. Well shoot I got lots already now!! I got a handful from Suncrestreef not long ago and they're everywhere when lights are off, if you want any you can have them! Sent from my BLU R1 HD using Tapatalk
  21. Ugh. I really need to get some starter stomatellas from someone one of these days.
  22. Nobody? Oh well I'm still planning on giving it a try! Sent from my BLU R1 HD using Tapatalk
  23. You haven't had any issues with your emerald munching on your corals? I've had three over the years and all three eventually started chowing down on some corals! All were well fed too, I just recently banished #3 to my sump after discovering it eating an entire frag disc of tube corals! My previous two liked any Euphyllia. One ate two large heads of green torch before I noticed... Good for you if you're able to successfully keep one though, they are definitely great algae grazers too but after that I'll never try keeping one lol. Sent from my BLU R1 HD using Tapatalk
  24. Those Stomatellas I got from you are breeding like crazy!! They're all over the front Acrylic when the lights are off, you probably can't see them that great in the picture but they're all over Sent from my BLU R1 HD using Tapatalk
  25. Like Exodus said no need to fill up troughs, I'd personally put rocks in a cooler or buckets with water depending on how much you have, put corals in bucket(s) or cooler with water, and fish separately in a bucket with a lid but not snap lid closed completely, just cover basically with the lid to keep them somewhat calm. Maybe keep a Tupperware type container with a few scoops of your old sand to seed the new, make sure there's water in it. You can add a few drops of Prime to the water of all buckets/coolers containers to illiminate any ammonia, I would bet everything will be just fine. I've used old blankets, towels to stuff around the buckets or coolers to keep them from falling over, keep them snug and in place better. Add the seed sand to the new, I just dump it in little mounds here and there, acclimate all the rock and livestock to the new tanks, corals may look a little crappy for a while but odds are they'll perk up in no time. In my experience the corals would eventually look crazy happy from nice clean water [emoji16] so far I haven't lost anything doing it this simple way.
  26. If you want I have some Prime left if you want it it's yours, not sure exactly how much is left but a little goes a long way so just let me know. And if you want that $20 RODI from kjlife I can probably pick it up for you if he still has it, and just pay me the $20 (or even trade for coral or whatever) and I could meet you or your girlfriend Friday or Saturday? He lives close by so no biggie, that is like I said if he still has it. I was almost thinking about grabbing it anyway just because it's a great deal lol Sent from my BLU R1 HD using Tapatalk
