  1. Just wanted to say that a few weeks ago, I missed out on their frag pack offers but Holly put together a custom pack for me after I PM'd and let her know what frags I was interested in. I got some great corals which are doing awesome and already showing growth!! Holly was very friendly, my wife and I loved meeting her and seeing their setup Just wanted to say I wouldn't hesitate to purchase corals again from them and it was an awesome transaction

  2. It's been a while since I've taken any photos of my Bubblegum Monster chalice. It's growing nicely and producing several new eyes.

  4. Ha! Yes, It was a Xmas present from my wife a few years ago. She knows I like gadgets and photography, so this Flir One camera that attaches to my iPhone was a clever gift idea. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B071Z63RSL I’ve used it around the house to find where cold air is coming from, where insulation is lacking, checked my circuit panel for any overheating breakers, and even busted my dog for sleeping on the loveseat while we were out for dinner! (we were curious where he sleeps so I walked around the house with the Flir cam until I found a dog-shaped heat pattern on the loveseat)

  7. Got tired of my lights just hanging there, in the open, so I finally decided to build a floating canopy. Still need to trim and finish it and trim and re-finish the stand but I am pretty happy so far. I added before during and after photos.

  8. Sneak preview of preproduction ReeFi Uno. Only thing that's not the same as final production version is that it uses a 3D printed prototype shell while the production shell is still in the plastic injection mould tooling phase. This little Uno with form factor of only 7.25" x 5.68" x 1.73" pack a whopping 180 watts! Using latest 2 layers copper core PCB fab technology with direct contact from LED diode's thermal pads to copper core for superior heat transfer. That along 4 phase exchange vapor chambers are what make is possible to stay so tiny with such power. Just like the ReeFi Duo Extr

  18. My daughter is looking for good stuff to design or print that is reef related for her store. Now that the face shield craze is dying down, we have idle printers. There are tons of already built designs out there. Every type of cradle for every controller, feeders, skimmer parts, fake rocks, the list goes on and on and on and on. That's kind of the issue, picking things to make that people actually want. I am leaning toward the MP40 nem guards as they are pretty expensive and we could easily make our own design from scratch thus honoring licensing policies. For inspiration rea

  19. Just put in a order for 6 lights. Any idea on when they will start shipping? I’ve been debating on lights for a long time. These look amazing and you can tell Daniel put a lot of time into the design and layout. Top that off with a warranty that no one can beat and the choice was easy.

  22. After years, I've finally put a cover on the reef tank. I don't think I used a cover on either of the previous two tanks. After a few casualties, including a pair of clowns I've had for about 8 years, I decided it's irresponsible to just keep not using a cover. I actually like them. I can set tools, towels, and whatnot on them which is actually pretty dang convenient. However, I know that switching out power heads is going to be more of a pain that it already is and feeding is less convenient. At any rate, here's how they turned out. Also, here's the latest update on the Gigas. It's a fr

  23. Spent the last four days slowly disassembling the main display tank, fragging, tossing, and moving to the fish room frag tanks. Only left and right islands remain. Found a great technique to capture clowns... Move their favorite coral into a plastic tub, and slightly chase them with the lid. When scared, they move into the coral... And lid snaps on. An intact move to their new temporary home in the frag tanks. Snapshot of mid tank teardown, before frogspawns were removed.

  25. I've just release the ReeFi Uno specs and started taking pre-order with 20% discount. https://www.reefi-lab.com/reefi-led-uno/ Following the success of the ReeFi® Duo Extreme, ReeFi® Uno continues ReeFi’s mission to make premium LED fixtures that will be affordable. One of the hard lesson learned from the Extreme is the importance of design for manufacturing. It’s easy to make a few prototype but scaling up for mass production creates more complications. Using the latest PCB fabrication technology, ReeFi® Uno incorporates 2 layers copper substrate PCB with direct thermal path techn

  26. Moved him to the way far back. About 10 frags were generated in this process of course Tipped the tyree blue flower petal monti sideways so you can actually see it! This opened up a huge area to grow something that is a different color This will also allow the 'flat topped' 'tom peterson haircut' hydnophora green reaper to keep growing!

  27. I recently saw that coral vue finally got a shipment of the new phillps led lights in. While i am not a huge fan of LED lights these seem to me to be one of the best lights on the market. They have addressed many of the downsides that most LEDs have. 1. No fans!! I never ever understood that. Fans mean dirt, dirt means heat, heat kills. 2. Nice diffuser plate that prevents disco affects.. and there is supposedly an opening in the diffuser for the white lights to get some amount of shimmer. 3. Built in power supply.. no mounting yet another brick 4. color that actuall

  30. Live Sale Rules: please read the entire post! We will show you a coral and give a description. Each piece has its own number and, in general, we have multiples of each coral unless we specify otherwise. In order to claim/buy a coral you must say “Sold” along with the number of the coral that we give you. For example: Sold 37 will claim a piece of that number coral for you to purchase. We will list back the winners for each piece in the order we receive them on our screen. Important note: your screen will always show that you were first, but we will have to go by the list that shows up on

  33. These guys are working their butts off during a live sale! It is an amazing production to watch in person. You would never guess how much is really going on behind the scenes. Here is a pic I snapped during the last sale. Although it looks intense (and it is), don't let the picture fool you--they are having a blast. Austin is on the left keeping track of who won what and for how much, Kai is doing the video/tech stuff, Jorge is in the middle (hidden behind some of the equipment) doing the chat, and you all know Jeff, the executive producer and leading role. Oh, and I'm holding a beer and

  34. I would have actually followed through with med school plans. But, the years of unanchored travel and adventure following college was worth it. My advice, decide on a size and double it.

  36. Had a lot of researching to do so progress has been slow. Finally decided on the lights. Aquatic life dimmable with two kessil a360x. The kessils should be here next week so we can finish the lights up. I should note the tank is pulled out from against the wall so the lights might look off. Connor also has been studying negative space aquascape so he is busy chipping away and designing. Not in that much of a hurry since the nano is up and running but we are trying not to get bogged down in research also.

  39. Upgraded the Fishroom ventilation fan this weekend. Been running a 273CFM Dayton squirrel cage fan mounted in the door for years. It's been noisy, but on the opposite side of the house than bedrooms. Recently I realized it's just not evacuating enough warm air in the evenings. So Upgraded! (No wire management yet, just mounted and tried out) This is a PWM controlled fan, so ramps up/down slowly to reduce noise. Temp and Humidity controller included. Can program based on Timer, Temp, or Humidity setpoints. AC Infinity AIRLIFT T10, Shutter Exhaust Fan 10-inch wit

  44. This spring, I too started over. Complete overhaul of the equipment room. (sump/etc) My conclusion, best thing I've done is build the RO and SW mixing station, and connect them up with DOS pumps to do Daily Auto Top Off, and Daily Auto Water Changes. Why didn't I do this 15 years ago! And now, I'm overhauling the display tank side of the system. Working my way up to taking the existing display tank down and putting its replacement in place. This will happen in October.

  49. Yeah, the sale was fun, great idea for quarantine! Just FYI, the way Google handles livestreams through youtube they aren't all sync'd directly to the streamer.. so it's 'live' in a sense that it's streamed to the watcher, but not actually live in synchronized timing with other watchers and/or streamer.
