  4. Group buy time!!

    It depends on what we are buying. In this case it sounds like Jeff may have the acro colonies on hand so that shouldn’t be a problem. For the maxi mini group buy in the past people drew numbers to see who got to pick out their anemone first.
  5. Group buy or growout contest?

    So a baller big tank group buy?🤔 Can I start small and see how that goes first ? But I like the way you think!😀 Hmmm maybe down the road a group buy for leds or aquarium controllers... 🤔 Do you know anyone?😉
  6. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    This is a great idea. I think the amount of water clinging to a frag plug and specimen would be negligible. I agree with @albertareef that finding a either a cylinder or beaker with fine enough graduations will be the kicker.
  7. FS: Water Blaster HY7000 and ATO Resevoir

    I'll take the reservoir. I can paypal you the $$. I am out of town until after the first of the month though. Mark
  8. Reef Octopus Water Blaster HY 7000. Great pump, but not cut out for high head setups, and as I've relocated my sump to the basement, I had to go another route. $120 Voltage: 120v/60HzWattage: 88wMax Water Flow: 1800gphMax Head: 12ftDimensions (L x W x H): 9″ x 4½” x 8.3″Inlet Size: 1¼” inletOutlet Size: 1” outlet Innovative Marine 5 GALLON HYDROFILL RESERVOIR like new condition.

    @CuttleFishandCoral pm’d you my email addy. Thanks!
  10. NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    Looks like the USB one would be the one I would prefer
  11. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    Actually I think Daniel’s point about how well the frags are “dried” (which I missed) is a more problematic variable but still could be overcome. Shouldn’t be necessary to use the same amount of water as you are looking for the volume change (unless I’m completely missing the point again). I’m thinking the main problem would be getting a graduated cylinder the right size to fit the frag but have fine enough gradations to measure the volume change accurately. Might be too hard to nail down for the grow out but I dig this idea in concept. Volume change ultimately should give you a more sensitive and robust indicator of growth if you could find a reliable way to measure across different users. Rulers are pretty straightforward after all.
  12. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    Ahh. Sorry Daniel - just teasing a bit I would expect that would actually be relatively minor if you allowed it to drain for a brief period (maybe gently shake off) and should also be porportional to the surface area of the frag itself so wouldn’t bias the number significantly. Could remeasure the same frag a few times to get an idea of the variability.
  13. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    Absolutely correct, but in thinking about it, you have need to "assume" everyone uses the same amont of water So on second thought... lovin the ruler idea LOL Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    My point is when you add frag to beaker, the frag is wet so you adding water too, not just the frag. Ok, unless you dry out the frag with paper towel first. ;-) Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  15. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    Umm... pretty sure that is the idea Now Brad will drop in and tell us something completely different and I will feel like a complete idiot (should be used to it by now). Guessing you add a set volume then add your frag and measure the difference. Keep track of growth by measuring the change in displacement over time. This is actually a great way to do this as it should measure the change in volume - which will account for growth in all dimensions not just height. Makes a lot of sense to me... which means I am probably wrong!
  16. Group buy or growout contest?

    What about a group buy where everyone buys a premium coral colony instead of one colony being fragged up? Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  17. Group buy time!!

    I haven't done group coral buy in the past but I imagine it would be nice to be able to see the coral (live or pics) before commit to buy. So there's no misaligned expectations. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  18. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    Interesting concept...but how do you add acro frag into beaker without adding some water as well for true displacement? Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  19. Group buy time!!

    Yep I rember you and Brad talking real nice to each other!
  20. Group buy time!!

    It's a fun line to tread! [emoji12] How can we not... Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]
  21. Styrofoam boxes for shipping

    Large is 18x12x12 Small is 11x10x13 Med is 16x10x11 They are from live aquaria. Free but if you throw acros at me, I'm ok with that too. Sent from my SM-N950U1 using Tapatalk
  22. Group buy time!!

    This thread reminds me of the good old days when Reefnjunkie and I would banter back and forth and tread that line ...
  23. Group buy time!!

    Who would've guessed, lol Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]
  24. Need to move Livestock fast.

    Thank you. I'm really hoping it goes well.
  25. Graduated cylinder/ beaker

    Don’t suppose anyone might have a dozen or so in the 250 mil range that need to be rehomed by chance. I foresee an acro grow out comp in the future and displacement is really the true way to measure for acro growth (in my humble opinion) If not there is the ol faithful ruler Amazon has the beakers around 8.00 per but asking people to buy them may not fly/be right, so I’m asking for handouts/donations you know “show the love” or is it “share”....... Anyway, it’s a shot in the dark SHARE.........
  26. Group buy time!!

    I'm in on all accounts!
  27. Need to move Livestock fast.

    Congrats on finding a buyer for the tank - sounded like a pretty sweet setup.
