  1. This is a fun one. I'm looking forward to it!
  2. Sure, I have tons of it.
  3. I have a ton of JNS Cotton Candy Chalice.
  4. I just had the same surgery to repair a hole in my ear drum a month ago. My ear is now nearly 100%, so hopefully yours went as well as mine did!
  5. Haha....no, I actually froze it in case Eli decided to do this testing. We had been talking about it in the past, so I thought I would save the bodies and see if he could use them for his project.
  6. Eli, I have frozen, recently deceased fish. They died from marine velvet. Does that help?
  7. I like it Eli. One comment: You should define Archaea, since I suspect most reefers don’t know the difference between them and Bacteria.
  8. 40 yrs would be a long term investment!
  9. Hopefully there was no horse’s head involved. Seriously, how big is your new system? I read they grow really fast when young. I’d love to see it grow into a specimen like Garrett had!
  10. We are coming but won’t be there until 145-ish because of the drive from Corvallis. We can’t leave until 1215 or so.
  11. Wow! I want some of that microbiome in group 4!
  12. I still have some corals I got from him at the most epic tank breakdown in history! A great guy, who will be sorely missed.
  13. Since we use freshwater to make our tank saltwater, I doubt that regional differences in the microbes would have much of an impact. I think most of these microbes don't survive once the water is salted, and then the microbial community is dominated by species that come from our live rock and corals, etc... On the other hand, if we were using seawater collected from different areas in the ocean to use in our reef tanks, then I would expect to see more regional differences in microbes. Edit: Oops, now I see that Mark was referring to the microbes in water collected from our Oregon Coast. I'm not sure whether those colder-water microbes would survive in the warmer reef environment that we create in our tanks, but I don't really know.
