  1. Big news!!!

    Cuttle Fish will continue to have its amazing selection of quality fish. However, Saltwater Harmony's pre-quarantine fish are quarantined off-site in isolated tanks and then delivered to Cuttle Fish where they are held in a tank separate from the regular fish system. Right now, it is located to the right of the door if you are coming in from the parking lot. You can always look on line at www.saltwaterharmony.com to see what fish are currently available. Fish are added regularly as their quarantine period ends, or you can do a custom request which would be available in 4-6 weeks.

  3. When? Saturday, September 23, 2017, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Where? All Things Aquarium, 30789 SW Boones Ferry Rd, Wilsonville, OR 97070 What? Food, fish, and fun! We're lucky to get club member milesmiles902, who is a graduate researcher in physical chemistry at OSU, to do an "enlightening" presentation on florescent proteins. Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and drinks will be provided. Feel free to bring a side or dessert to share, but it's not required. Everyone will get a free raffle ticket (one per family, please), and supporting club members will get two. There will be no ticket sales, so everyone who attends gets a chance to win! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

  5. MACNA In New Orleans!

    Oh man Sid, I would love to go but it isn't in the cards for me this year. I HIGHLY recommend that anyone who is on the fence about going--do it! MACNA is super-fun and very informative. Sid--report back to let us know how it goes. I'm so jelly!
  6. Friday Afternoon Eye Candy!

    Yes...nice to see you on here again. Welcome back!
  7. Is dKH drop linear?

    One thing to think about is making adjustments by using a different brand salt. Every brand has a little different balance, so depending on the needs of your tank, a different brand of salt might work better. For example, I have a heavily stocked system. I was using Kent for years, but battled with very high calcium. If I work to raise alkalinity, I had precipitation just like you Willapa. I've since switch to Fritz and although I initially had some problems, I'm happy with it now. It seems to help keep my levels where I think they should be, and where I think my corals are happiest. Here is a link to a chart that lays out the reported parameters for different brands of salt. Fritz isn't on here, but you can find it on the company's website. A word of caution though. If you really want to dial it in, test your mix. The batch you get might vary from these numbers. http://www.thatpetplace.com/salt-mix-guide Sent from my SM-G928P using Tapatalk
  8. Large Reef Garage Sale - July 8th!

    Thank you so much, Ken! I had a great time today. You were incredibly organized and had amazing deals. You're very generous with your time, advice, and corals. I really enjoyed speaking with your wife, as well. I'm just bummed I didn't meet you guys sooner. Good luck on your next adventure! Sent from my SM-G928P using Tapatalk
  9. We're back up!

    I just wanted to give a shout out to our admins--Jeremy "TheClark," and Jay "Chief"-- for all that they do. Jeremy got a text from me this morning while he was on a road trip. He actually pulled his car over and started working on the problem. Kim, who is also on vacation, texted Jay, who was actually working his real job, but was ready to jump on at his earliest opportunity. These two talented and dedicated guys work behind the scenes to keep this site going, and they do it on a completely voluntary basis. Without them, there would be no forum. Thanks you two!

    Thanks, everyone! Super excited to see some of you today. There might be some chocolate chip cookies, if I can get my butt moving. If you want some beer though you're evidently going to want to get here before Scott. See you soon!
