  1. Official CNC Zoanthid Grow Out Thread

    I'm somewhat in the same boat, Scott. Mine hasn't opened yet either. Was excited to see that I got a chunky frag at first (about 5 closed polyps) but would rather had 2 polyps fully open. Not giving up hope just yet....fingers crossed. Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]

    I have a hotspot on my phone, so no matter what, we'll have wifi Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]
  3. May Meeting Save the Date!!

    Who supplied the music equipment at our last meet? I believe, Jeff mentioned it was Kai, that had the sound system...maybe we can convince him to bring it to the meeting [emoji847][emoji847] Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]
  4. May Meeting Save the Date!!

    I have a Margarator! Works perfect for a small group of 4 to 5 people, but I anticipate 20 or more people showing, so it's probably not gonna work out. We'd need one of those slushy/icee machines from 7-11 to keep up with the demand, that's for sure! The meets are getting better and better with thumpin' beats and a keg at our last meet, and now possibly a Margarita machine! Let's do it!!! I'm always down for a little partying, especially when corals and alcohol and whatever else are invloved...

  5. Potential Suplier for Coral Frag Plugs

    I'm definitely down for some custom frag plugs! I've been looking for the half-dome shape, kinda like if you were to cut a baseball or tennis ball in half. Growing zoas on them, as I've seen, would look awesome, especially when they're all covered, kinda resembles rolling hills. Also, flat squares ranging from 2 to 4" for grow outs. If the price is right, I'll definitely grab some! Fire up that kiln! Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]
  6. Looking for starter corals. GSP, xenia, Kenya tree

    I'm not in the Eugene area but Vancouver area, rather. I have tons of neon gsp that I'm constantly, ripping off the mother colony when it starts to crawl. You are more than welcome to it! I also have a lot of neon green toadstools. You are welcome to a couple frags of those, as well. These are 3 to 5" toadstools not babies.

    Yeah, no kidding! Anyone know the name and price of that beauty? Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]

  10. How to raise nitrates...a tad

    Did you say 'stump remover'? Holy sh!t...lol. I think, I'll do a lot of research before I take that on. Seems like, from your experience, you had a helluva time keeping your nitrates stable. Scary man... Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]
  11. How to raise nitrates...a tad

    Thanks Exodus! I've never dosed anything other than purple up to promote coraline but that was when I started in the hobby 6 years ago. I will talk to Bret about the aminos he is dosing. Will this be beneficial for my sps, as well? Thanks again... Sent from my man cave while drinking Coronas at Holly's [emoji481]
  12. How to raise nitrates...a tad

    Funny...before posting this, I noticed that Trailerman started a thread on how to 'lower nitrates'. Well, I'd like to do the opposite and raise my nitrates up a tad bit to, at least 10. Reason for doing so, I noticed my zoas have not been opening up as fully as before. What I mean by before is, before, I started introducing sps into my tank, I had a zoa dominant tank since the beginning with a few lps only. Now in the last, oh, 6 months or so, I've been introducing sps corals with great success. I fired up my CA reactor, that's been collecting dust in my garage, for this very reason. Plugs are encrusting and my acros are taking off! I feed heavily, I feel, but nitrates are 0 or that's what they appear to be from the test. Prior to introducing sps, water changes were done when I felt like it. No ca reactor and a curve 5 skimmer that was barely turned on, only when the water got a little cloudy but that was it. From what I've heard, it's a balancing act to keep zoas and difficult sps at a happy medium. Don't know if that's true or not. Zoas are my first love, especially when you've got high end zoas in the mix. But then, I'm really lovin' my acros and millis, especially when they are encrusting. Just got my WD acro today, as well. Anywho, I could be wrong, but I feel the reason why my zoas are not happy is bcuz of low to zero nitrates.... Any helpful input is greatly appreciated thanks...
