    Trade in Albany

    Huntero1975, I understand you want to trade everything for 3 specific pumps, so I moved your post to the trade section and edited it to remove the mention of selling. If you wish to sell, just list a price, either for the lot or piece by piece. You can add OBO for flexibility. It's nothing personal and is a rule that applies to everyone. Looks like a great deal for someone!

    I’ll be there. See you all soon!

    NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    Hello from your new par meter booking agent! The club now has 2 par meters available for loan to paid members. We typically have a waiting list to borrow, so when your name comes up, you can either take the one that is available or wait for the other - either way, you will not lose your place in line. Meters available: Apogee SQ-520 Full Spectrum Smart Quantum LED PAR Sensor This page has information you'll need, including links to software downloads for PC and Mac. You'll want to make sure you're able to use the software before borrowing this meter. Apogee has verified tech support for operating systems Windows XP through 10, as well as Mac 10.10 and higher, and they offer to help out if someone runs into compatibility issues. Apogee MQ-200 Quantum Separate Sensor with Handheld PAR Meter Huge thanks to @Smann for this generous donation! To borrow a meter: be a paid member of PNWMAS pay a $50 refundable deposit, given back upon return of the undamaged meter agree to fully reimburse the club if damage or loss occurs - full cost of a new meter is $345 (+ $55 for the sensor wand if that is also lost/damaged) return the meter to me after your week with it is up (if you live extremely far away, another club officer or board member closer to you can accept it back) I prefer to avoid members transferring the meter directly to other members, because I don't want anyone to find themselves responsible for damage caused during a prior loan. Returning it like a library book protects all parties involved. Waiting list current as of 7-5-18: Nanoreefer32 - no response; turn skipped, but place in line retained Paratore - in line for USB meter - skipped until new lights installed wantanewtank - Waiting for USB meter ChrisQ - Waiting for USB meter

    ALBERTAREEF.. I found your new tank!!!

    The hogfish in the video seems to be attacking his own reflection, thinking it's another hogfish. Probably bored out of his mind in that small tank with nothing better to do. The complaints I've read about parrotfish in acrylic tanks are more to do with them scratching it up while trying to get every last bit of algae.

    ALBERTAREEF.. I found your new tank!!!

    All this talk of glass versus acrylic... you can’t put a parrotfish in acrylic! And if you don’t think you need a parrotfish, what are you even doing in this hobby?!

    I'm out in Oregon City, but I'll be in Vancouver on Tuesday and can meet up with you then. I'll send you a PM to work out details.

    April 2018 Meeting Pictures at Golden Basket

    Relieved to see the overload of blue slushies I had did not result in a blue smile in these pics! Although, I might have been suffering brain freeze in this one. Huge thanks for documenting our shindigs.

    ALBERTAREEF.. I found your new tank!!!

    [language filter]... that could fit a whole lot of flashy wrasses! The big gaudy ones, 12” rainbow colored monsters! And their parrotfish friends! Pretty sure the weight of it before any water was added would crash through my second-level apartment floor, though.

    Anyone else feel like they're in one of those Discover commercials with the "not you" lookalikes?

    USB meter was handed off at the April meeting and is still being used. Handheld meter is currently available. @wantanewtank - where are you located?

    Bumping this up! You have till April 30 to get the discounted rate for a vendor table at the event. Last year, we had a blast and made a lot of money for Tanks for Teachers. We're expecting another great turnout this year and hope you'll be part of it!

    April Meeting At Cuttle Fish and Coral!!

    Whoever made that pan of brownies deserves their own special thanks, because mmmmmm! And special thanks to Scott for whipping up some bacon for this picky eater! I pretty much never fill my plate at potluck gatherings, but I did at this one. Thanks to all who brought something to share!

    Food for April Meeting

    Sounds like some type of burgers are happening, yes? I'll throw in a vote for bacon, in that case, because that is what I like between my buns. (Realizing now that could be worded better, but where's the fun in that?!) Just a suggestion, and no hard feelings if we already have a full grocery list. I won't starve as long as there is bread (buns).

    March 2018 Meet at Hollys Pics

    Great job with the hitchhiker talk and the photo recap, Bert! Excelling at two major jobs there! We are lucky to have you! Special thanks to Holly for opening up her home, to all the club officers who pitched in to make the meeting a success, and to everyone who came out to socialize and support the club! We have such a fantastic group of people here! More exclamation points because I love them so!!!!!! What, you don't all have a bottle of turpentine in your fish med cabinet? Consult with Bert or Miles recommended first. Yep, all your fingers are still there, Andy! Technical assistance during the talk appreciated.
