  1. Reef Worx Expo

    I'll be there!
  2. NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    Hey, all! @lewisriverfisherman sent me a question I don’t really know the answer to, since I still haven’t gotten around to using either meter myself. Maybe someone can help him out? @albertareef? Can you please explain the difference of the par meters to me as I know nothing about them. I have an AI Prime Hd light. Which par meter would be better for me? The full spectrum? Thanks for your time! Brandon
  3. NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    Perfect. I’ll PM you a time/place.
  4. NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    @ocboat, I have the USB meter ready for you. Good times to meetup would be morning/afternoon hours for me this week/weekend, so just let me know what day works for you.
  5. OSU film on plight of coral reefs released!

    Ahhh, sorry my text is huge! It does that when I copy/paste on my phone.
  6. OSU film on plight of coral reefs released!

    I registered for a free ticket and received this additional info: 6 p.m. Doors and table exhibits open 7 p.m. SNEAK PREVIEW: Saving Atlantis – a feature length film by Oregon State University 8:30 p.m. Panel discussion/Q&A with Saving Atlantis film makers and OSU Researchers I wonder what the table exhibits are? Probably fundraising for a save the reefs cause. I would say I’ll be there early to check that out, but there’s laughter in my head at the mere suggestion of being early for anything.
  7. February 2018 Stylaster Frag Demo Pics

    He'd have to dye his hair for that! But I welcome anyone who wishes to share the rainbow hair stage with me.
  8. February 2018 Stylaster Frag Demo Pics

    I love seeing photos from our meetings; it feels like we're have the fun all over again! I took a few pictures at this one, as well. Bert is such a dedicated documenter, he rarely ends in the pics, so I made sure to remedy that as soon as he walked in the door! Our club VP and overall terrific guy, badxgillen joined me in adding a splash of color to the group! Groovy tie dye, dude. Is it just me, or is Sean giving a look of, "WHY would you take my photo?!" Well, I did, and I'm posting it here! Gotcha! His lovely wife Darcy put up with our club shenanigans rather well. Lewisfisherman & theclark, labeling themselves and eyeing the tasty selection of appetizers. Miles here, doing a bit of socializing with dog and baby, reefers by association. Our gracious host, Stylaster, standing by to control the amount of drool falling into his frag tank as members came through to eye up the goods. Dodge & Jeremy, checking out the display tank of wonder: 312 gallons of colors and textures galore! How does the lemonpeel hybrid do with all these corals? Well, there's your answer! Black Lemon didn't wait for Roy to tell his business to anyone; he just showed us! Apparently, this is the only fish in the tank who cannot be tricked into a trap. The tangs will be feasting away and having a grand time in it, while the angel looks on all-knowing and wisely stays out. Who can blame him for wanting to leave such a rich buffet? He probably has it better in this tank than he did on the reef in the wild! Look at those beggars! Always at the front of the tank wanting more food, despite being incredibly well fed. Vlamingi enjoying a bit of personal attention from his human. Ahhh, yeah, that's the spot! Scratch right there! Impossible to view without a sense of calm washing over. At least until the envy sets in! Time for some fragging! I joked the loser of the raffle would get this frag of putty being sawed off, but there ended up being enough of each coral that everyone went home with a frag of each! (Except for Beth, who left without taking hers. If you're reading this, let us know! She couldn't remember her username at the meeting, so we don't know who to contact.) Intense concentration from these guys! If you enjoy playing Where's Waldo?, you can play Where's Bert? and Where's Karen? in this photo! Old Man Max checking in on how the fragging demo is going. He's thinking of starting a tank now that he's reached retirement age. Miles getting in a bit of bonding time with my 14-year-old fur monster. Big thanks to Roy for welcoming Princeton to the party! Yours truly, happy to have spent the afternoon with fine friends of the reef keeping variety! See you at the next one!
  9. February 10th Meeting @ Roy's!

    Thanks for powering through! I will definitely add some after looking through yours and deleting my dupes.
  10. Excited for the new tank!

    The program usually covers a few fish purchased from sponsors at cost. @kknight can advise on that. I have a maxi mini nem to donate when they’re ready.
  11. February 10th Meeting @ Roy's!

    Great seeing everyone! Quick message to Beth - you left without taking your free coral from the fragging demo! Our host @stylaster has it saved for you, so let him know if you’d like to pickup sometime or have a member bring it to a future meeting for you.
  12. February 10th Meeting @ Roy's!

    Yes. Get ‘em hooked young!
  13. February 2018 Meet Frag Swap

    You got it! 2 more available if anyone else wants them.
  14. February 2018 Meet Frag Swap

    Anyone need styrofoam box coolers? I have a few that are otherwise going in the trash.
  15. February 10th Meeting @ Roy's!

    Meeting is tomorrow! Bring an appetizer or dessert to share, if you'd like. Bring a labeled frag or two if you wish to participate in the frag swap raffle. Bring cash or card for raffle tickets to win LFS gift certificates! Bring your wonderful self for the fragging demo and take home a frag!
