    Well folks, it is getting closer to the end of the 2019 year and you know what that means for the PNWMAS club don't you!? The December Holiday Party!!! Where - Walery's Premium Pizza 1555 Edgewater St NW, Salem, OR 97304 When - December 14th Saturday from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. What - Meet and Greet, Gift Exchange, Raffle, Food, and Fun! As usual, the club will order a few pizzas and pitchers to get the festivities started off with, but with the counter to the pizzeria just 15 feet away you should be able to get whatever you need conveniently. Being a pizza fan I like finding what a friend likes and going in on a pizza to share, variety is the spice of life right? And for those who are new to the annual event know that we will have a White elephant gift exchange to get in on! To participate we recommend bringing a wrapped item someone might appreciate of a $10-$15 value. We will draw numbers to dictate the order of handing out the gifts, and allow for one optional "theft" of a previous opened present per person. If you have not participated in a white elephant gift exchange before, this may all sound funny, but I assure you it is a riot of a game where everybody has a good time and walks away with something to remember. In addition to the gift exchange and all around festivities we will have some amazing prizes from our awesome sponsors and our PNWMAS club, you know we never disappoint. So make sure to grab some extra raffle tickets and win it big! Stay tuned for more updates and additions to the raffle prize roster, you all know the PNWMAS December party is always a Hoot!

    What does everyone use their reef lights for....other than reefing..?? My parents goats recently had kids and we set up a temporary kidding barn. Well they needed a light for the barn and I had an extra LED with burnt out diodes [emoji23] so the goats are getting sunshine inside for now! On another note, look at how cute these little guys are!

    My wife went shopping at some little boutique store in NW Portland and came home with this nice hand towel embroidered with an acropora colony. That was very nice of her. 😊

    Dana Riddle have posted some PAR and spread for the ReeFi Duo Extreme. "PPFD of Reefi Extreme taken with an Apogee MQ-510 quantum meter. Treat your self to a great light for Christmas.

    PGE's website says the outage is impacting about 1,000 customers, and estimates repair by 4:30pm. In the meantime, I still have Internet, TV, and of course my reef tank running perfectly! 😎

    Diversity Action #2 completed last night. 10 gallons of "used" tank water, plus transfer of a ~1yr seasoned 8x8x1" Marine Pure Plate. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/marinepure-ceramic-biomedia-plate.html Both items were transferred within an hour of removal from the source tank. Thanks SunCrestReef!

    The Club has a par meter that are free to borrow for members with a deposit. It might give you some piece of mind and a idea what par your light is. Message Flashy Fins or lewisriverfisherman they have the info for the par meters.

    Have a 120 gallon tank for sale 4x2x2. Has a black canopy and black stand. Has a sump that’s L shaped and is as big as the stand length and the second chamber is full of rumble rock. There’s 2 AI Sol led’s in the canopy they may need new power cords. I’m getting ready to setup a redsea 500 peninsula tank up so this tank has to go. I’ll start a tank thread for the new tank soon. Can’t figure out how to turn pictures around. $300/OBO. tank is acrylic

    That’s just weird the EL is the easiest Apex I have set up. It literally took less than 10 min to have it online. I would put a ticket in with Neptune and have them assist.

    Have you looked for the square Norwesco containers, like this: You might want to call Green Concepts in Gresham to see if they carry square containers. I know they have a huge selection of round ones, but they might have square. See https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bfd/d/portland-norwesco-tanks-super-store/7013043589.html

    Ok im new to the raising clowns, im sure this is probably common but they just layed a new clutch and the current one isn't done hatching. Going to move the pot for 2 day to my fry tank and hopefully after moving it back the parents will keep taking care of the new eggs, lol. I did get a few recognizable pics of the current ones......the all while ghosty one is my favorite

    I'm not sure if the xf280 is compatible with the same icecap controller, but if it is, your call but it (pump only) for about $50 not than an mp40, but the xf280 moves up to 6000 gph, the mp40 moves only 4500, the mp60 moves 7500, but costs way more (almost $200 more than the gyre setup). Moreover, that flow is, as@SuncrestReef said, a broader flow, which will have advantage on a smaller tank. You can put one in each end, having 4500 (max) from one side and 6000 (max) on the other, in different patterns. That's like 80x for your tank, which would be way overkill, but they won't run 100% all the time, do you'll probably need more like 40x... Which is great Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk

    I haven't personally used a Vortech, so I can't compare. Here's what I like about the Gyre: Moves a lot of water is a wide swath rather than a narrow central stream You can angle the right side and left side different directions You can run it in forward or reverse. Mine alternates between forward and reverse every 10 seconds. Quiet operation Very easy to disassemble and clean

    Got to keep it lively you know. I have to admit the case if the missing frags is puzzling. Starting to wonder if Holly’s dogs got carried away. Maybe Scott refused to give them snacks or something. Don’t cross the pups!

    I surprised my wife with an upgrade for her 5 gallon freshwater tank at her office. I just picked up this JBJ 10 gallon rimless peninsula all-in-one tank. Not much of a “build” since it only took 3 minutes to assemble everything! Nice quality though. 😊

    I don't think it's really what you're after, but there is an open source project for a reef controller. Not as full featured yet, but if you're savvy you can add on to it (did I say open source?) Reef-pi. Giant thread on reef2reef, adafruit guides, ranthelion HAT on tindie, GitHub code repository, etc Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk

    So I should setup a separate tank entirely for these guys?.. I don't know about this.

    Maybe a minor aquascaping change....corals on top are getting HUGE and creating too big of shadows underneath. Good problem to have;)

    Was just setting aside some stuff that I need to photograph. Nothing high end this go around. Going to be mostly $10 frags with a few that will be $15 or $20. Need to make space. Going to have scrambled eggs, Rastas, eye of raw morph, dragons eyes, bam bams, and more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    From a friend who is in the hobby Just started a tank up again after 15 years out of the hobby Originally, I did it on my own. I got a buddy into it after that. We both quit, he started back a few years ago and got me back into it Just a 20gal, for now ,. Some soft coral and one clown fish with cleaning crew Never thought of a dream fish Dream coral would be a brain coral I hope this was the right place to post this for newbies

    Thank you, I have been on this forum for a few days, reading. The knowledge and experince base is massive, I love it. I was in the reptile hobby for a long time and unfortunately had to exit it against my will. This hobby has already pushed me like reptiles used too. Im so lucky to be part of it.

    I have been thinking about my next tank when my house finally sells, and I keep thinking that I want to do something different. It will be an 8x4x30 in wall. I am not thrilled with the idea of an inwall tank but whatever, my job is to make it super cool. So, I have this thought that I would use one of the principle tenants of aquascaping and slope the sand bed towards the rear. If I build the back up 8" then front to back it would have a 10 degree slope. This would create a greater sense of depth and also serve to highlite anything I placed on the sand bed because the whole sandbed would be exposed. I started a thread on 2r2 about what to fill this space with..bricks, cement, gravel, life rock? Seems like sand and water in pvc tubes is the best idea so far. But.. have you ever seen an angled sand bed? I just dont really want a boring 4' deep tank. Thoughts? Comments? I wish crabby was still here. He would know the answer, he knew the answer to everything. Cheers. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I have some people that are already interested in livestock that may or may not be coming today, but I am going to need to move my tank to get at all the water, which means draining it. I don't have a 2nd tank to put stuff into. If anyone is able to come today for the livestock, please let me know. If the other people can't come today and you can, I will have to go with you (sorry to the others!). I live in NE Vancouver. 1 Yellow tang - pending 1 Tomini tang - pending 2 Firefish 2 Black Ice Snowflake clownfish - pending 1 Diamond Goby 10ish adult snails - pending Roughly 12 million baby snails Various zoas, torch, etc. - pending
