  1. ID please?

    I plucked the original piece from the 12/25 photo off that day, and sure enough another popped up yesterday. I decided to take the advice above and just finished a Hydrogen peroxide dip (1/4 OTC hydrogen peroxide 3% : 3/4 Freshly mixed saltwater) for 90 seconds and then rinsed with more saltwater and put back in the DT. The zoas are not happy but we'll see how they do - it's next best thing to try vs losing that whole rock/colony.
  2. ID please?

    This looks like bubble algae to me but I'd like others opinions....
  3. Free zoas

    Thanks again for the frags - everything's settling in nicely.

    @Gil&Fin - I would like to take you up on this. I can meet up with you tomorrow afternoon or anytime on Sunday if that works? Nate p.s. - I don't need many / I am happy to share with others.
  5. Aquavitro 'Fuel'

    I recently had a gift card to consume, and I picked up a bottle of this stuff - http://www.aqavitro.com/products/fuel.html. Curious if anyone has any experience, pro or con?
  6. Aquavitro 'Fuel'

    Thanks all. Yes, the bottle I got was from Terry @Seahorse Aquarium @youcallmenny - I wonder since he is a stocking dealer he may be able to source larger bottles for you?
  7. What do you do?

    I moved to Oregon in '95 with passable skills in AutoCAD then one day looked up and realized I was the IT department for the company I worked for. Later went to a bigger IT department, and another day I found myself on the management side. I spend most of my time seeking to understand clinical and business problems and designing or implementing technology solutions. I was 10 years at Intel, 10 years at Providence, and currently working on the Medicaid/Medicare side helping my team keep the systems running so that Claims and Prescriptions get paid, and occasionally proactively connecting people to the services they need. To the LEOs, Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Grunts - Thank you for your service.
  8. New 33 gallon Aquamaxx

    My 33 gallon (24x18x18) Aquamaxx purchased locally / used. Stand was made from 'Hopkins workbench kit' which is probably overbuilt for what I'm doing. Next up - Dry rocks.
  9. New 33 gallon Aquamaxx

    I'm going to dig through the house and see if I can find a snorkeling camera that I picked up a few years back. It's bound to take better photos than this phone...
  10. New 33 gallon Aquamaxx

    New years update: Picked up several frags from Sean yesterday thanks @albertareef! Also you may be able to tell from the crummy phone pics that the Coraline is starting to come in (yellow then green then darker green now purple spots). I'm continuing to slowly ramp up my lights:
  11. Back in the game: 125 Reef (re)build!

    Can't say much that hasn't been said - Great looking tank / stand. Nate
  12. ID please?

    Gaarrrhg. Thought so. Thx. It's the only one I can see (so far). I will pull the rock, scrape 'em off and hope.
  13. Merry Christmas PNWMAS Fam!

    My in-laws surprised me with a gift cert to Seahorse Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays everyone.
  14. Tank build 36 gallon fluval m90

    Welcome to the forum. Lots of helpful folks around here. Tank pics look good too!
  15. I replaced the MJ1200 that was in my DT with a Tunze 6040 last week. First impressions are very positive. This thing is small. Sitting it in the back corner of my tank and it quickly disappears. If the propeller weren't blue, most folks wouldn't know it is there. It's quiet. I have it on pulse mode (5 seconds at100%, then 5 seconds at 50%) and you can't hear it run, turn on, or change speeds. The feed mode is stupid simple. Push the 'feed button' and all goes quiet for 10 minutes. Pump returns to prior setting automatically. It's more adjustable than I originally thought. Between rotating the output, and orienting the motor horizontal or vertically you can direct the flow to just about wherever you like. They aren't cheap ($140) but I'm happy with it.
  16. Large Orange Monti

    If you decide to break up, I will take a 2"x2" piece. If not, no worries. Glws. Nate

  20. New 33 gallon Aquamaxx

    Yesterday I got around to installing the Tunze ATO (works great so far) and I've slowly been ramping my lights up (i've got a ways to go, but taking things relatively slow...

    Manny, Tank looks great. What is your current livestock load? I'm trying to figure out how to load my 33 gal... Thanks. Nate
