  1. Holiday Party Save the Date!

    Is this a reef focused white elephant?
  2. Heater broke, tank crashed

    That's really interesting. I never look at that aspect of the hobby. Do you know what that is? Now you have me curious!
  3. Heater broke, tank crashed

    I have one of these, no glass at all. I think going cheap on the thing that is most likely to go wrong and destroy your tank is a big mistake. With so much money invested in livestock a quality heater is a no-brainer IMHO. Cobalt Neo Therm
  4. New to the boards

    Was glad to see you guys there. (Nancy) I must confess I didn't get anything from you this weekend, but I do love the acans I got from you at the sale at BRA last month.

    well done! Glad to have been able to participate.
  6. NWfragfest Raffle Items!!!

    I had a great time. I was nice to meet folks. Thanks for all the work you did getting this organized. Food was awesome! Thanks to all the vendors who were able to separate me from my money...again...I got some nice things.
  7. RAP was AWESOME!!

    Had a great time at RAP this past weekend. I'm so glad I went. Got some great corals from Golden Basket & Stumptown (my first bounce). Trying to think of how to tell the BF that I want to go to the Frag Swap this weekend. I did not win any raffle prizes, but got some decent swag, including the new Somatic Media Reactor. They gave that away to everyone who had paid for parking at the venue. I mentioned to someone on Sunday that I had flown in so no parking, they gave me their ticket since they had gotten a reactor the day before. I love the folks in this hobby!
  8. RAP was AWESOME!!

    I'll need to do some better pics. The colors are off the hook on some of them.
  9. RAP was AWESOME!!

    I am so out of room... I'm already considering mounting shrooms and the superman and rainbow montis on my overflow. I really want to meet everyone. I guess if I can fly to Cali, I can drive to Vancouver ;o:
  10. RAP was AWESOME!!

    Just a sampling. Pics aren't good. Everything was packed since late yesterday and I wanted to get it all dipped and into the tank. Also got a CB Neon Dottyback from MarineDepot (forgot the fish folks) for $20. I was sooo excited to get a pectinia. None of the pics do any of them justice. Got a few others as well, a few SPS including a Beast Mode from Stumptown. Really going to try and come on Saturday. I always say its too far, but Vancouver is not bad at all.
  11. Heading to RAP in the early morning. Anyone going? I know Rudy will be there. I can't wait to see his corals up close and personal. Staying at the Residence Inn Marriott (BF was super and gave me my 2 nights from his giant pool of Marriott points) Send me a PM if you're going to be there. Would love to say hello. Going to be there both days.

  13. September Picture of the Month - Corallimorphs

    Is it coincidence or design that this is national mushroom month and corallimorphs is our potm topic? Purple Haze Rhodactis.
  14. 24g 18 x 18 x18, sump and stand $200 OBO

    Gone, please close thread.
  15. Drilled tank, plumbing, 7g glass 2 chamber sump, Aquatop return pump and gloss black stand. Levelling mats for both tank and sump. The latch on the door does not work quite right but I think that can be adjusted. It stays closed. Tank was only running for 5 months. Just upsized this past weekend. No trades please, trying to recoup some cash from upgrading tank. Any accessories in pictures are NOT included. Bought from Barrier Reef Aquariums back in March. Tank has been broken down and rinsed out. Pick up in Renton WA, near Valley Medical Center
  16. MACNA bound Golden Basket Reef Corals

    I resemble this remark
  17. MACNA bound Golden Basket Reef Corals

    Not this year, next year for sure. I considered it but decided to upsize my tank instead. Represent the PNW, show them the awesome!!
  18. How do you judge the right amount of light?

    Since you're a supporting member you can put your name on the list to borrow the PAR meter and check your lighting. Then you know what the light levels are like throughout your tank and can place corals in the approximate zone. Every coral is different. I don't always start corals on the bottom. I try my best to find out what light they were grown under and the distance from the light. It gives me an idea of what type of acclimation they will need and how I need to acclimate.
  19. Barrier Reef's 3rd Annual Frag Swap & Sale

    Going to have my new RS Reefer 250 to fill up. Have it marked on my calendar.
  20. I really appreciate the consideration to have the grand prize be available to all supporting members. Its so tough with my summer work schedule to even consider leaving town.
