    So there are a couple of different things going on. The "Leader Board" is by reputation points (from people liking posts) and defaults to the "by month" time frame, the "Top Members" list and the ranking titles that show up in profiles (the "shark", "zoanthid" etc.) are based on post count only and are cumulative. You can see the cumulative reputation points on the profiles and the Top Members listing as well but that isn't the sort in the latter case.

    Frag Fest photos?

    Man - that is one happy frag! Looking good Dodge!

    That could be arranged my friend...

    Interesting and definitely explains why they are hard to keep. Wonder if Scott still has his @spectra

    Ouch - at least you are discovering these things before it's too late to fix them. Frustrating I'm sure though. Good luck ironing out the production details!

    Yeesh - you and Suncrestreef are making me feel more inadequate all the time... I clearly need to retire so I have the time to up my controls game. (if only)

    Collector sps pack fs

    Nice selection! If I bought it could I leave them with you until they get colony sized πŸ˜ƒ I don't trust myself with high end frags anymore 😞 Seriously though, these look great and someone is going to score a really nice collection. GLWS!

    Seems like lots of folk use the standard tubing... I know that I have had issues with loss of pliability and hardening that can affect connections (had the line pop off at one point) so am a bit sensitive to the issue. I was just hoping you had found a cheap source for the C02 resistant stuff πŸ˜„

    Oh man... that is sad. Sorry to hear of his demise - especially as he seemed to be doing so well. Note to self - don't try to eat whole fire shrimp.

    Queen Angelfish FS

    Yeah, I will try later on a different computer - maybe the browser. I was wondering why you were getting rid of it, they are such beautiful fish! Hope it finds a good home Jon.

    My understanding was there there is a significant difference in permeability and susceptibility to hardening/cracking with non-CO2 "resistant" compounds. Looks like greenleaf markets some specifically for this type of application but runs about $1 per foot. Some of the medical purveyors also have versions but are even more expensive.

    For some reason I can't get this to play - bummed as I really want to see those angels!

    Will be great to have some options for those of us with longer tank dimensions. The pendants will work but a unit that better matches the tank profile makes a lot of sense as you (theoretically) should be able to get better coverage with fewer fixtures. Looking forward to seeing these in action!

    Black Storms everywhere!

    I will say that they are one of my favorite clowns to hit the market. I like how their eyes just look like the rest of the body markings and kind of disappear.

    Fish room planning

    Yeah - that position will definitely give you the best viewing angles even if is isn't the "cleanest" from a layout perspective. I could certainly see this being the preferred option to maximize your enjoyment of the tank. I will say, however, the whole thing makes me envious πŸ˜„

    Nice. What did the CO2 resistant tubing cost you?

    why are people flakey?

    I don’t remember that but may have been during my hiatus. It does make some sense although could be controversial if not used responsibly.

    Hey Miles - are you talking about the "Rank" designation at the bottom of the profile screen shots you included? If yes, I think that is a purely driven off of the post count number. At some point in time, different "ranks" were given to different levels of post count and they automatically change whenever you cross the next threshold - honestly don't know who came up with the designations or thresholds (anyone know?). Emerald has her own "rank" as as top poster for being the most prolific member on the site! Jeremy or Jay might be able to see the configuration and give a listing of the rank titles.

    That was quick! Nice colony.

    why are people flakey?

    Well, at least I wasn't one of the 4 no shows πŸ˜ƒ Definitely think you are well within your rights to expect better communication and, while life can and does seem to wreck the best laid plans, I always try and let people know if I can't make an arranged meeting - as you say, common (or perhaps now uncommon) curtesy. Very disappointing to think at least two of those were potentially members treating another member here with such a lack of respect. On that note... what acro frags you got 😍

    So are you using this for screening hotel rooms when you are on the road or... Just curious. πŸ˜ƒ

    You realize you just jinxed yourself right? That is a pretty good run for sure.

    I liked that design - too bad it didn’t work out for you long term. GLWS.

    How bout them COWBOYS!!!

    As much as I would like to talk some β€œboys” smack, they were worlds better than the *#^% show that was the Raiders this year. No end in sight either 😞

    Thanks for the update Daniel - exciting to see this turn into a finished product! Congrats on seeing all your hard design work come together. Maybe we could get a demo at one of the upcoming meetings? BTW - who’s feeding the triggers while you are in China?
