  1. And here I was getting ready for the epic parting out sale!
  2. Well, that was supposed to be "dicey" but I guess autocorrect didn't like that for some reason. Sigh.
  3. Hi all, Discovered the pH probe that I use to control my CA reactor died and took it off line. Just thought I would check in and see if anyone had a spare they were willing to part with before I order one online - deliveries have been kind of dicey lately. Give me a shout if you have something. Thanks!
  4. Well, that would require that I actually have something worth taking a pic of in my tank ๐Ÿ˜ž COVID has not been kind to the tank or my work schedule... Thanks for the heads up though!
  5. Yep - as long as you can remove them to fit them in there. Definitely not something you see on here every day. GLWS!
  6. Will be keeping an eye on this as well. Have been pondering the biodiversity question while struggling with my tank. Picked up some additions from SuncrestReef a while back so want to give things a bit more time to equilibrate and recover from the rusted out return pump fiasco before retesting.
  7. I'm not sure about Higher Thinking's experience but in my old tank, I had too much rockwork to effectively try removing and they were expert at getting into crevices where physical removal wasn't a viable option. I tried the usual aptasia treatments to try and keep them in check but they eventually just got to a point where I had to pull the whole thing down - the rock baked in my driveway for about 6 years until I set another tank up - in which I fortunately have not seen them again. The way the F-aptasia works, however, there is a chance it could be effective in cases where it's impractica
  8. Second this - these look like majanos and are way harder to eradicate than aptasia with no known predators that I am aware of. It would be worth trying the F-aptasia on these as I have recently also had much better luck with that than Aptasia-X on actual aptasia. No experience trying it with majanos as it wasn't around when I had my outbreak. Like Andrew, I tore down a large (125) tank because of these - they are not to be trifled with! Good luck!
  9. Welcome! Sounds like a nice tank choice. I look forward to seeing a build thread on this so hopefully you like to take pics as you go ๐Ÿ˜„
  10. Those look sweet Bret @MrBret Will be curious to see them if/when I ever make it back out there ๐Ÿ˜”
  11. We are keeping it up in your honor I guess...
  12. Itโ€™s kind of a thing now. I think Jeremy might be leaving it up just to taunt us. Either that or to see who is actually paying attention
  13. Congrats! I have seen those in a few times but they are striking and not all that common. Hope it does well!
  14. If it werenโ€™t so expensive I would suggest just picking up a couple of powder brown or powder blue tangs - guaranteed ich magnets. I am only sort of kidding on this as they have always been the first to show visible infection in any tank outbreak I have had. Gave up on keeping them anymore even though they are beautiful fish. I will let Brian fight that fight @pdxmonkeyboy and just come see them in his tank. ๐Ÿ‘
