    Super awesome aussie acropora spathulata

    Let the specimen get accustomed to your tank, then take a couple frags...heal...grow...repeat. Nothing happens fast...except corals dying . Don’t get me wrong, shops frag colonies to frags all the time...but it does come with risk;) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    RedSea max nano

    Cool little tank:) Did you try the hydra over the nano? I’m only using one prime, which does ok, but have been contemplating upgrading to the hydra. I like how bright your tank is from edge to edge. you should move the heater to the back compartment, they are just an eyesore out front. The chamber next to the filter sock chamber is where i have mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Check out this years Crazy Black Friday Sale!

    What a great sale It was! Thanks for the swag bag with a gift card! Well worth the wait in line:) As usual, garret had primo stuff for sale at great prices. I played the grab bag game too, seemed like a pretty good bet. I ended up with 3 new corals...some nice paly’s, a nice little mini colony of tort of some sort, and a big old toadstool. That was pretty fun, he made me wait til i got home to open the corals...i tried really hard bot to peek. Heres a bad pic of the sps...my first of the tank...well ok, 2nd, but definitely gonna be the most tempermental:) gonna have to stay on my toes now:) Been a while since i handled sps...snapped off one of the tips carelessly:) but now i have a frag i suppose;) If you havent been to Garrets in a while, do yourself a favor and go check it out. Lots of new tanks. My only complaint was all you reef people were jamming everything up, place was oacked to the gills...jabbering on and on about how your peppermint shrimp just had babies. Hahahahaha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Reference books

    Best books for beginners, and advanced reefers alike: The Reef Aquarium, Vol. 3: Science, Art, and Technology By Julian Sprung and Charles Delbeek. Seriously only book you need. May be a little spendy, but it’s a book that holds it’s value really well...for good reason. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Looking for one...flexible on the model...just needs to fit an aio tank. Thanks! Can do cash or trade for zoas or cool shrooms. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No time for it right now sell off

    HAHAHA, Nailed it! Although you forgot to include yourself in this breakdown....because by then you will probably have a bathroom tank, bedroom tank, and upgrading to a potential porch tank., Oh, and you didn't even know I have two new tanks...hahahaha leave me out of this! I know I have a problem:)

    Green red planet

    You have that poor SPS squashed in between an RBTA(I know it moved there), and a blastomussa. Both can kill the red planet. Sure maybe it's par, but I would move it, especially since it not encrusted too much . My red planets would usually have a green tint to them in the lowest light for sure....alot of planets will show a green belly for this reason, light doesnt hit the underside.

    Gotta go - 75 and 55 Rimless Lagoon - Dec 1st

    Trying to auction ALL your items in one thread? Maybe packs of items...or one at a time...... If u want an honest price, just ask an honest price. If u want it all gone by saturday, it’ll have to be an incredibly good price. The rules clearly state a price is needed or thread shall be removed. May be easier to start over...i dunno.

  13. Maybe some people just run their tank at 60,000k all the time;) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is this a good setup?

    Non drilled/siphon dependant overflows always make me really nervous. First tank i ever had used a CPR overflow...after i dumped 40 gallons of saltwater someone had to use CPR to revive me after my parents killed me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Had a firefish go missing for about a month...then i found it trapped in the back compartment of the tank...unfortunately it had gone blind while stuck in the back chamber. It was three black walls with no light...sad Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
