  1. Sad News

    I've been out of the loop for a while, and am now working at a high school similar to Pioneer in population and needs. We have a safe space for this tank if it is not in use, or if another system built similarly is available. Needs would be similar to those at Pioneer-a sturdy lockable stand and hood, acrylic tank. I can supply corals and care for the system. I have not formally gotten approval for it yet, am just seeing what the possibilities are at this point. Could someone get back to me at my school email address and let me know what I need to do to get my proposal off the ground formally and if this is possible? Thanks, Kate Breimayer kbreimay@mesd.k12.or.us
  2. Spots on my mushrooms and torch

    I had those about 4 or 5 years ago I think, and decided they were most likely Waminoa sp. Tried melanurus and yellow coris wrasses, no dice. I think you are right about them eating copepods. Unfortunately they were immune to flatworm exit and another brand of similar product. I finally treated the tank with something that killed them but it killed all my pods, brittlestars and other worms too and it took years to get those back, I still only have a few. I think dipping new corals is a good idea for them. Anyone successfully treat them with a product that is not so harmful? Here is a link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convolutidae Kate
  3. Looking for corals

    I'm in SE near Foster and 205, and I need to cut back my green Sinularia colonies if you are interested. 20 bucks, your choice of stalks, some are huge. Also have mushrooms, ricordea Thanks, Kate
  4. Kate u got mail

    Thanks, sent PM. I don't use tapatalk or get online every day, sorry! Kate
  5. The rock with both zoas and the R florida is gone, as well as a few other Ricordea. PowderBlue spoke up for the Red Planet piece and I still have mushrooms for Sergio, another person is coming for Ricordea, but I will still have some baby blue yumas and multicolor floridas I think. I am cutting frags if people want fresh cuts of the acroporas or green Sinularia, and made a few more frags while waiting of odd stuff. Probably will do a new thread next weekend with updated stuff. Still got plenty of Stylophora pistillata in various sizes. Thanks everyone!
  6. Thanks! I take about 20 bad shots for every good one, sure glad I am shooting digital not film At this point the RO unit, shrooms, ricordeas, large Red Planet frag, and zoa/ricordea combo are pending. Forgot to mention too that I will take fresh cuts off my neon green sinularia if anyone is interested. Small 10, medium 15 large 20. By "small" I mean a piece that would be 30-45 in a store.
  7. I am not getting about half of my PM's, please reply directly to this thread or let me know you sent a PM so I can PM you back if I don't get the message...
  8. Hey, I did not receive your PM, could you resend and check the name?
  9. Well last December was going to shut down a tank and liquidate but we had so many storms, got pneumonia, and found my SPS were suffering from low alk and not ready to move so I got back into my tanks and no longer want to liquidate. I do however need to thin things out quite a bit and raise money for the stunning heating bills I got! The SPS are growing into eachother, it's out of hand. I do have cyano and vermetid snails in both tanks so if that's a deal breaker sorry! Location wise I am in SE Portland near the Foster exit from I-205. I only have a few fish bags so if possible bring your own, a bucket might also be good for the larger things. Waterway Tiny Might pump $50 used one year Bulk Reef Supply RO unit with 3 prefilters and DI resin post membrane. Has TDS meter and pressure gauge. No idea what the condition of the membrane is but was getting TDS 7 water out of it, guessing the resin is overdue for changing and the prefilters are fairly new but stored wet... I use tap water in all my tanks $50 ORA Red Planet frag $65-will be taking the large top piece that sticks up like a wing off the main colony, think it's about 5" wide, 4" tall and 2" viewed the other way.. Ask if you want it pre cut and healed or prefer fresh cut. Fresh cut is the best way to avoid algae and vermetids but riskier. Large pink tip Cat's Paw colony/Stylophora pistillata $70 approx 6x5x4" maybe a little more Cyphastrea colony $60 approximately 6x3x4" This is an aggressive grower-would look great covering an old dead skeleton of something but away from other corals including LPS. Color varies with lighting and Alk/Ph but I don't think it's a genuine Meteor Shower, it never got that saturated for me. Idaho Grape branching/plating montipora. Under very high light this will grow vertically, better purple color under LED's or higher in the tank. This piece approximately 8x5x5 $45 (cheap due to sand killing part of the flat area at the base, fragile at edges) Ricordea florida multicolor, orange, green $15/head Multihead multicolor R florida with zoanthids $25 Baby blue Ricordea yumas $10/head $5 if small. Picture shows 2 smalls on a shell, behind that a small, a large and a tricolor R florida on one piece of rubble. I also have a full size one on a newer clean frag plug in the other tank. Sunset Mushrooms 2 polyps on frag plug $20 color varies from mostly orange to mostly green depends on lighting and age Seafoam mushroom on frag plug $10 Another pink tip cat's paw $50 approx 4x4x2.5" Fresh cut Acro frags on request
  10. considering selling out my bowfront

    After thinking for 24 hours I decided since i really enjoy LPS and softies more than SPS and they are easier I am going to part out my 90 SPS tank instead and then cram whatever is left into that tank and shut down the bowfront. This is going to take some time, will have to photograph everything and price it and then will start a new thread. I got messages from people interested in the duncan and other good size colonies, am going to try and frag off 2 heads to keep and then price them. I can't figure out how to post photos on this forum but the pictures are here https://electrokate.smugmug.com/For-sale/
  11. considering selling out my bowfront

    I am hoping someone will take the entire tank due to the lack of lighting, not to part it out, so first offers for the entire system will be given dibs. If i have to part out will start a second thread with photos I think... I have SPS galore in the other tank that I should sell and probably could buy the AI Sol ballast with the money from them and keep the tank I suppose. But it's probably time to give up.

    Trying to put up a photo... still can't figure it out but it is here https://electrokate.smugmug.com/For-sale/i-CHPZ3qX/A

    I can't figure out how to add a picture, sorry! Haven't been using the forum for a couple years, it's all different now
  14. Hey, I have bills up the wazoo and a lousy income and now a light broke on my tank. Considering selling it. Anyone interested in a 72 bowfront that needs lights? Comes with sump, SWC cone skimmer, Ebo Jaeger heater, a korallia that works and another that spins backwards. Fish are one sailfin tang, one large Chromis atripectoralis, one male melanurus and one bangai. No snails or hermits. Corals are large and need fragging, mostly softies. This is an easy beginner tank that rarely has issues other than algae or vermetid snails which are currently in remission. I have no idea what to ask for it, is it ok to post a thread just seeing if anyone is interested in the whole thing? I'd also want to keep a frag off the gorgonian since I have had it over 10 years. Here't the last picture I took before the light died today... the sailfin is in my other tank, I want to keep the flame angel and yellow tang since I have had them over 10 years:
  15. Hi, do you still have the light? My AI Sol just bit the dust...
