  5. How to successfully keep SPS Corals!

    Those are the basics though, I want to hear what some set ups look like. What kind of lighting they run, what they dose, what they use for flow, basically how they run their system. Kind of just create a bank of SPS knowledge for people looking to get into the SPS world so that they can be prepared as possible and have the best fighting chance at a successful SPS reef Everyone says that you just need flow, good lights, and stability but never elaborate on how they have achieved those things in their own reefs.
  6. May Meeting Frag Swap 2015

    I would also love to jump on this DBTC when you start your thread for it! Might even have enough zoas for my own DBTC in a couple weeks
  7. I believe that my zoas are up to 11 heads +1 baby now! That's a total of 6 new heads I believe! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Need a small tank

    Does anybody have either a 10 gallon or 15 gallon tank they wouldn't mind parting with? I am using it as part of my new sump creation so I would prefer to not to buy a brand new one from Petco haha. Preferably near me (corvallis) but I am headed to portland this weekend so that area works also.
  9. Need a small tank

    Perfect, I should be able to swing by and grab it on Saturday. I am just not sure on a time because I have a lot of stops to make up there. But it will be sometime between 1-5pm haha.
  10. Need a small tank

    I think I will actually be able to come get it from you. Would you be free on Saturday?
  11. Reef Controller?

    I am thinking about adding a controller to either my reef or my dads reef but I am not sure if its worth the money. Mostly adding this thread to see what peoples opinions are about their controllers. Would you guys recommend them? Which one? Just let me know what your experience has been with them. Thank you in advance!
  12. Reef Controller?

    Sounds interesting, I'll have to check it out.
  13. Reef Controller?

    Very true, maybe a couple lifetimes and just maybe I'll come close ha.
  14. Reef Controller?

    hahahaha spoken like a true reef addict. I haven't reached your level yet but give me a few years and I bet I will get there.
  15. May Meeting?

    Just throwing this idea out there, but my friend in California says that his club just meets once a month at different sponsors stores to hang out, swap frags, socialize, and buy coral from the shops. I think it would be cool to do that same kind of thing for our meetings if we do not have a set speaker. We could go to places such as Premium Aquarium, Cuttlefish, Critter Cabana, Upscale and others for our meetings. It is great business for them and helps get their names out there to our members. I'm not sure if the sponsors would want to host those event but I think that it would be something good for the next Vender Relations Chair to look into if the sponsors and members are interested.
  16. Reef Controller?

    My girlfriend says that I have an addiction LOL
  17. Reef Controller?

    Man the apex does sound pretty awesome, thank you for all the feed back! correct me if I am wrong but the apex website and mobile site work on macs and apple devices right? haha I have had so many questions because I am reducing some stuff on my system such as the lights and sump but some of the other questions like this one are long term plans since I do not have my dream system yet due to living in my fraternity. I like to dream of my future system in a couple years. A lot of these questions also apply to my dads tank. He is not very knowledgeable in the saltwater world and he is wanting to get into reefing so I am helping him set his system back up since he was only a fish guy before. He is the kind of guy who likes to just enjoy the tank without doing much to it so I am trying to help him set up a pretty automated tank and figured a controller would be perfect for him. I actually can't set up a frag tank anymore My roommates said it was to many tanks in our room lol! Im going to be working a lot more so I figured I would spoil myself and get a better skimmer and lights for getting into SPS haha.
  18. Reef Controller?

    thanks for all of the responses! so it looks like two of the better ones are reefkeeper and Apex. What are the pros and cons of both that you guys have found?

    Also a nice card:) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. The fixture is a Coralife 48 Inch Aqualight Pro, 2x150W HQI MH Lamp + 2x96W PC + 3x1W Lunar LED. I would like to either sell this fixture or trade it for some other equipment, preferably a skimmer but I am open to offers. I have been using the fixture above my mixed reef tank and it works awesome! Now it is time to upgrade to LEDs! It also comes with a hanging kit, the stock legs, two straight pin to square pin converters for the PC, and 5 extra Bulbs! two 10K and three 20K. There are currently 20 K bulbs in the fixture. I am looking for $250 for everything but I am open to offers. http://s1300.photobucket.com/user/Cody_Paratore/media/IMG_0942_zps0bm7d0is.jpg.html
  21. WTS- Light Fixture for sale!!

    Make me an offer, I'm open to anything! Coral, nano light, fish, cash. Just let me know you have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. add a refugium or have no refugium???

    What is the advantage to keeping Mysis shrimp instead of having lots of pods?
  23. add a refugium or have no refugium???

    Thank you for your input! I think I'm going to leave it bare bottom! hmm never thought of keeping pod condos. Going to have to do that so when its my time I can share the love! Once I have my refugium all set up I will defiantly hit up the people of PNWMAS for some pods!
  24. add a refugium or have no refugium???

    Sounds good to me! Thank you! One another note, where do you guys get pods for your refugiums? The only place I have found them is at my LFS but they are a pretty penny.
  25. Good or bad starfish??

    Looks like I'll be tossing him out to be on the safe side!
