  1. Face to the name?

    Not sure about most of you, but I often wonder/ imagine exactly who I'm talking to. Perception can be such a batch. So I thought it might be fun to do a thread yearbook style of sorts. . Lets all say hello! I'lll start. Myself (Mike) and my beautiful wife Joanna.
  2. Is the a sponge coral or eggs or?

    Deffo not clowns as mine lay eggs every month. Looks like sponge to me as well.
  3. Family poisoned by "coral spores"

    I usually frag my leathers. Then I squeez this piss out of them and inject the juice produced. It's out of this world!!! Once I'm finally back to reality I drive to Portland parks and drop my syringes for others to find like an Easter egg hunt.
  4. Need EB8.

    As the title says I'm in need on an EB8. Turns out heater issues were a precursor to a larger problem. Noticed this morning that half my pumps are not running. Unfortunately this EB8 also powers my heater bank and skimmer. Does anyone have one lying around they are willing to sell? I need one asap! What's weird is I checked the data log and found a spike in the amp consumption. Tank always runs a steady 4.1 amp, the spike was 11.8 amps! I have no idea what could have caused it
  5. Need EB8.

    Deal! Is it the newer ones or the older style?
  6. Check Those Heaters!

    Go figure. I am in the roofing industry and when one of the guys says " looks like it might rain today" it inevitably does. Now I stumble upon your thread and a day later I am awaken by my phone chiming alarms from the apex that I'm below the tolerated temperature. At 3:00 am I wake up and investigate to find two of my three hearters are failing. I've had no issues for over 4 years thanks to you. Some things should be kept silent. Lol.
  7. GFCI - Outlet of Choice

    Wired my tank with its own circuit. All in one gfci. I would have occasional trips until I did this, now not one since. Great piece of mind.

    I'll take it. Where are you located?

    Sorry. Turns out I have a stock pile of the s026 models.
  11. April Picture of the Month - Invertebrates

    Thanks. It's one of my better photos.
  12. Anyone selling an artic t247

    I might still have one tucked away in the garage. I'll look when I get home.
  13. Collecting amphipods

    In tide pools. It's actually at Lincoln beach just north of fogarty creek. There is a high cliff with pools that are exposed all of the time. I could try to find it on a map if you'd like.
  14. Marine Depot's amusing shipment notice

    That is bad a$$! I wish I'd get a description like that some day.
  15. Collecting amphipods

    I've collected them down near Beverly beach before and boy do those ones get giant compared to those we grow in our refigum. Problem is I've always collect them in a cup or the like and they are all dead before I'm home several hours later. However like the Clark said I have always been hesitant on importing something undesirable.

    How about this one.
  17. let store live rock.. yeah or nah

    Nuke your own dry rock and start there. At least you know what your getting. I have a ton btw. Just sayin.
  18. WP Power converter issues.

    I'm trying to understand what's going on with my WP pump converters. I've gone through 4 of these in just as many weeks. Pumps run at constant speed. My problem is I find them pulsing and if I replace the converter if seems to fix if for a short time only to find them pulsing once again. Anyone experience this before? Is the problem the pump itself?
  19. WP Power converter issues.

    Indeed. Tried the new pumps on the old converters and low and behold they work. Pumps all along.
  20. WP Power converter issues.

    New units arrived today!
  21. Protein Skimmer

    I'd do $100 on the 120 and $140 on the 180. Both would need a pump. I have both mag drive pumps in a #5 and # 7 that I could let go for 40 and 50 respectively.
  22. Protein Skimmer

    You can run them either way. If external you'd need to build a simple stand for it.
  23. Protein Skimmer

    I have a couple Aqua-C models if your interested.
  24. Party Bus Details (official thread)

    Boy does this sound like my kind of day.
  25. Corals for Sale (WTS)
