  1. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Definitely developing faster than my true percs did that's for sure. Can't wait to see the little balls of clowns. I think that was one of my favorite parts.
  2. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Looking good, things are moving along quickly!
  3. First Annual Oregon Reef Expo Pictures!

    Sounds like you guys had a great time, I'm glad to have helped with the corals, TFT is a great program.
  4. Rotifers

    Found them! I've downsized A LOT in the last year and gotten rid of a ton of equipment, I'd rather give the stuff to someone who can actually use it than just throw it away. I'll be home in the evening tomorrow if you want to swing by, I'll pm you my number and we can figure it out.
  5. Rotifers

    I'll look around tonight, I know they're stored in a tote somewhere... I'm hoping to spend Sunday on the river. Not sure if you're going to check out the frag swap but I'll be watching the shop for Travis while he's in Europe, I could always bring them there if I find them tonight. Pretty sure I know which one they're in. Granted I have like 4 totes full of tank stuff lol.
  6. Rotifers

    I thought you had bred some clowns way back when? I have a civ and a brine shrimp hatcher if you haven't gotten them yet I'll gladly give them to you.
  7. I've got pieces that are just growing out on my frag rack, nothing crazy but I'm you could fetch a couple dollars for them. Someone would need to arrange picking them up from me or at Upscales on Saturday after 12:00 since I'll be holding down the shop for Travis while he's in Europe.
  8. Upgrade Time!

    Well today the tank showed up so I guess I'll put together some sort of a build thread... Some of you have seen my 30x30x18 cube, if not... well I have a SPS problem and now it's just gotten bigger. The new tank was built by OBD in Seattle. It measures 48x30x19.
  9. Upgrade Time!

    It's actually the second volume of a well known book! So it's pretty exciting to say the least. I'll let everyone know more info about the book as I get some more info and an ok from the author, don't want to let the cat out of the bag quite yet =)
  10. Upgrade Time!

    If you're interested in buying a pack of corals feel free to shoot me a PM and we can talk a little more about what you're interested in and some prices.

  12. Upgrade Time!

    Thank you, I actually just trimmed a few pieces I was going to list for auction on one of the sps Facebook groups this week.
  13. Upgrade Time!

    So here's an update... I recently removed a few colonies that I wasn't in love with anymore to make some room for a few new things. My biggest problem right now is not having any more room to add corals. Eventually we'll get our new house situation figured out so I can double the size of the current footprint with a new tank and have more room and a much larger prop system connected again. In some more exciting news I was recently asked to have my tank featured in the second volume of a very popular reef book, I'll update everyone with more information as things progress. It's definitely an honor! Other than that things are on autopilot chugging along.
  14. Upgrade Time!

    You still have my number? You should of called if so, I was home fragging corals and working the tank.
  15. Onyx Percs

    What you have there is a pair of Photon clowns, they're a hybrid clown bred from a white Ocellaris and an Onyx Percula. These were originally developed by Sanjay. I kept a pair of these guys for years and they're beautiful clowns and at great price. As Chewie said, the eyes and the mouth are a dead giveaway of their Ocellaris genes.
  16. Urgent request for help with fish

    So there is absolutely no science behind this that I'm familiar with but Travis and I were just recently talking about this. He's always had some dictyota in his display at the shop and used a few Naso's to clean it out... Strangely all of these fish have died, one working theory is that there's something in the dictyota that's actually killing these fish or making them sick... It just seems to be an odd coincidence. Wish I had more to offer... Sounds like things are already at a point of no return.
  17. Looking for 30" light fixture

    Nobody really makes a 30" fixture so your best be is going to be a 24" fixture or two smaller led fixtures.
  18. Question for SPS keepers (identify problem)

    While I don't have any first hand experience with the ME amino's 10ml every other day seems like A LOT, there's a good possibility you're overdosing? One big problem is you really have no idea how much and exactly what elements you're adding to your tank. You could also have a phosphate issue... I honestly only trust two tests for p04, one is the Hach PO-19 that Randy Holmes Farley uses and the full size lab grade Hanna unit Travis keeps at the shop. The checkers are worthless as fas as I'm concerned since their readings have always proven to be all over the place and totally inaccurate in my experience. I've found the red sea kits to be inaccurate but they are however very consistent, so if you're able to get a correct reading from a Hanna then you can then make the corrections using something like the Red Sea kit.
  19. wtb skimmer

    15" x 8.5" Footprint
  20. wtb skimmer

    I've got one of these guys that's been around as my backup skimmer but I really have no use for it... I can't remember the model off of the top of my head but it's plenty big for what you want 8" body etc... This is the same skimmer Travis runs on the display tank at Upscales. $175.00
  21. Auto Refresh

    It's horribly obnoxious!
  22. A Few Items Make Offer

    Per forum rules you need to have a price for your items or they'll be deleted.
  23. Shout out to Steve Manning (Smann)

    Steve is truly a class act! You also picked up the score of a lifetime on that tank!
  24. 3d printed needle wheel

    Who was it that was making the 3d printed needle wheels for the DC pumps?
