    If any of you own a Neptune Apex Classic, be aware there have been many reports of unexpected reboots over the past few weeks. Neptune has been silent on this problem, but in the Neptune Community Forums it has become apparent that the the problem is resolved by installing the latest Apex Classic firmware update, version 4.53_4D19, available on Neptune's web site: https://www.neptunesystems.com/support/sw-updates/ If you have been experiencing this reboot problem, I highly recommend updating your device with the new firmware. If you have NOT had any problems, then just leave it alone and don't make any changes.

    Yep--it's time for another $10 sale! For those of you who are new around here, yes it is true...every coral is $10. It's a lot of fun with cookies, drinks, good conversation, and hundreds of $10 corals. Stop by this Sunday, August 11, 2019, from 1 PM to 3:30 PM. I'm in southwest Portland--PM me for the address. Can't wait to see you!

    I have two different stag colonies, blue with blue polyps and blue with half green/half blue polyps. The two colonies are pretty similar and since I took the half green polyp'd frags off the underside the green isn't showing. I guess it's going to be a surprise! They're both lovely and fast growing though. They were both growing in to colonies near them so I got the bone cutters out and accidentally made more than I meant to. Pest free. Anyone want some at the next meeting? You can swing by in Salem if you'd like as well. Free! FREE! FREE! FREE! (They're free frags.)

    The haul today! Some of them got spooked, so dont mind them too much. Very impressed with the quality as always. Holly's frags make up 75% of my tank now. Thank you for the coral and cookies!

    I'll take one or both! Since the next meeting is at my house, I'll even let you decide where in my tank your frag would look best. 😃

    So sorry to hear you had to take this down. Glad you were able to find a buyer for the whole system - not easy to do.

    Thanks for the info. I could not figure out what was going on. Randomly my lights and pumps would go out then come back one within 10-30 seconds. I will try and update the firmware.

    Baby fish update. Went out to baby night feed and Tony the fish was missing. Found him under the rock I had in there (stuck). Got rock out. Not sure if Tony will make it. He keeps laying down then swimming a little. I guess this is what you call natures way of survival. On positive note all others looking good, and I managed to get my tank slowly up to 78. Degrees now. Took all day but i did it.

    I've also used two other products for lengths of time in the past. I started with Aquavitro Fuel which works great but has to be refridgerated after opening and is kind of hard to source. It's also expensive. I then used Acropower for the last year and a half on my 75g and that was much easier. It still worked great and didn't need to be cold so it could be dosed. Though the RS A+B also has to be in the fridge, I've had the best results with it. That's also a carbohydrate product involved that IIRC Fuel also included. I've tried just not running aminos in the past and been displeased with the results.

    We managed to paint the wall behind the tank. Child labor gets back there.

    I have not started dosing anything other than calcium and alkalinity, and target feeding my corals a couple times per week.. I've thought about dosing other elements, but my corals seem happy so I'm hesitant to do anything new. I also think my auto daily water changes with Red Sea Coral Pro is probably giving the corals some of the other elements they need.

    I was using Acropower. I noticed that the LPS seemed more extended and “fuller”. Same with zoanthids. Also noticed that my algae growth increased considerably. Also had a recent dyno bloom. I can’t say that the dyno bloom was due to the amino acids, but I do think that it contributed. I have since discontinued the use of acropower. I’ve been feeding reef foods, mysis and R.O.E. This has been enough to keep my nitrates and phosphates at acceptable levels. Everything seems to be doing fine. I read that many fish foods contain amino acids and the uneaten foods break down and provide the tank with an ample supply. Maybe just really low nutrient tanks need amino acid supplementation? Just my 2 cents, Pete

    Thanks for documenting this. It’s fascinating to follow!

    Have a 90 acrylic set up originally with under ground filter salt fish tank. 36 years now. Over the years its turned into a reef aquarium. Got rid of the underground filter. Added a overflow and trickle filter. But same aquarium. Didnt even move when we re carpeted. Just carpeted around it.

    That is an excellent question! I’m sure Holly has a plan. I’m bummed I won’t be there though. Always a blast and great chance to see lots of the members outside of a meeting.

    If you aren't there, who will be bagging the frags? (I always assumed Holly has some dirt on you to make you do this)

    Woo Hoo!!! Last time I showed up a couple minutes early and there were already some people in line. Maybe I'll just set up camp in your driveway on Friday afternoon to guarantee my spot! 🤣

    My current tank (something like 100-120 gallons) has been up and running since 2006. I upgraded it from a 90 gallon, which was installed in the same spot around 1998. I found my original drawings for the tank, attached. I ordered it from Sean at Waves Aquarium. That puts me at 13years on current tank, 21years on current stand. And if you're wondering, the tank has had it's ups and downs. Some years looks good, some years Not. Looks good now.
