    Corals for sale

    I have moved this to the appropriate category (classifieds). And per forum rules you need to list a price for your corals when listing something for sale I would recommend just listing everything out and then asking people to PM for pics. I am interested to see what you’ve got and what you want for stuff. I’m always looking for a new soft coral! Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....

    Paratore's 75 Gallon Display

    Well its been over two years since I've had a true display! I'm beyond excited to say the least [emoji4] I moved into a house with three of my closest friends and they wanted a fish tank. Being the stand up guy I am, how could I deny them!?! So I picked up a 75 gallon from Greg and thus the build was born. The plan is to create a beautiful mixed reef with minimal maintenance (everyone has this goal haha). My goal with this thread is to document the equipment used so others may steal my ideas, and to see how my tank progresses [emoji4] I have spent the last few weeks planning out equipment and livestock. As of now, I only have the tank and some 2x4s! But I just placed an order for a bunch of stuff today. Three boxes totaling 100lb will be here on Thursday! Still need to place at least one two more orders to get all my stuff. For this build, I want everything to work good and to have zero issues [emoji4] Also I never buy myself new equipment so I'm treating myself a little. Here is what I've got planned for this build. Equipment: Lighting: Going with a T5/LED Hybrid. Either the AquaticLife hybrid fixture with two AI HD Primes or something similar. BRS put a video out about this setup and it would meet my needs/desire for the tank. Flow: Two MP-10QD (already have, just need to order new drivers since mine aren't working properly) OR one Gyre 230 if the MP-10s don't give me enough flow Skimmer: Simplicity 240 DC Protein Skimmer Return Pump: Simplicity DC 1000 Pump Overflow: Synergy Reef Shadow Overflow Rock: 70lb Tonga Branch (going for the floating overhang) Filtration: Pond Matrix and MarinePure block ATO: I'm still deciding but I'm leaning toward the new Apex ATK ATO or Tunze Osmolator 3155 Sump: Trigger Emerald 34 Heater: 200w Eheim Jager Stand: Custom made by yours truly [emoji4] Livestock: Fish: (Going for the Skittles look with lots of movement) Clownfish pair Blue Spot Jawfish Orchid Dottyback McCoskeri Flasher Male Brunneus Fairy Wrasse Male Lineatus Wrasse Male Ornate Leopard Wrasse Female Very small Purple Tang Flameback angel Midas blenny This fish list isn't final, just my thoughts thus far. I'm definitely open to other fish and ideas [emoji4] Inverts: 2-4 Cleaner shrimp 2 Blood shrimp Starfish eventually Urchin? Corals: Lots of Zoas and LPS with a few SPS. I'll list them all out as I add them to the tank. Here is how the tank sits right now. Wait....that wall doesn’t have a power outlet..... Up next: fix the no power issue!

    Got mushrooms??

    Guess it was time to propagate the shrooms [emoji51] the two bounces were cut about 6 weeks ago. And one of the half’s got cut again tonight. The original one was huge! Oh and all the Jawbreakers got sliced too [emoji41] Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....

    Got mushrooms??

    No idea, they are technically my dads shrooms and I just propagate them for him. So once they are healed I’ll ask what he wants to sell, and how much Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....

    Small update. Tank is doing great! But my big momma BW split :/ so now I have two. And I also just finished QTing this huge Ritteri Anemone. It’s roughly 12” wide!! I built it an island rock to sit on so that it is my new “show piece” for now. I also just made connections to pick up a yellow tip Ritteri in a few weeks. This tank is definitely headed in a Ritteri dominated direction[emoji7] Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....

    Amazing new shipments!

    Sounds good! Do you have connections to get hand picked Ritteri anemones? I want some different colors but all the online stores just sell a “Ritteri” and you can’t pick colors. I don’t want another purple lol and I don’t mind paying a little extra to know what color I’m getting Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....

    Amazing new shipments!

    No I didn’t get it, they never got back to me with a price. But yes, I need more nems lol! I am going to take this tank in a mixed Anemone direction. Currently got this 10” Ritteri that is going through treatment. It will go in the tank next Tuesday [emoji41] Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....

  23. I’ve got two zoa packs up for grabs. Need to make a little space for my new Ritteri Anemone [emoji41] I’m located just outside of Salem. All frags are fat and healthy. No single polyps here. Take your pick, $100 each. Sent while trying to get my next coral fix.....
