  1. Red Yuma for Ricordia

    I have a quarter size frag of this and would like some Ricordia Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  2. This isn't for everyone but there are a select few that this might interest. Dual 250w DE MH with PFO ballast. Lights are in a DYI style enclosure that is easy to mount in a canopy. Lights are also free floating meaning you can move them closer together or further apart depending on tank. Design can be applied to larger unit. Bulbs only have a couple months of usage. Absolutely free. A simple "I'm in" will suffice. I don't know how much interest there will be here so I guess it will depend on that but basically if it's only 2 people I will flip a coin....first to post is "heads", 12 or less and I will role a pair of dice (post number will determine entry number minus 1. So first post after this would be "1", anything more than 12 and I will use a random number generator. I don't have pic's. This is a DYI style configuration, doesn't look terrible, just isn't like an ATI system either. Ballast is about as dependable as they get. Winner determined on Sunday between 5 and 6....say 6. But if the thread is stagnant it might be 5.
  3. AI prime

    I have 2 and had them both up for trade just last week.... Didn't get traction so now they are repurposed. One functions as a mood light of sorts in the kids room and the other lights my stand so I can see under there......lol.... Neither are even remotely lighting anything in water Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  4. AI prime

    Most stores carry them local so just go buy a new one. Otherwise it can be a long wait Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  5. Sea Side Aquatics Bubble Magnus Warranty - BEWARE!

    I would have to agree. I too feel for your situation though. Been there, done that. The amount of money I wasted in the beginning is staggering. If you would have shown me the figure I would be spending I may not have ever got into this in the first place. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  6. Lights

    My wife despises all the equipment I have sitting around. I mean it's in storage and all boxed up, but she still hates it.... And the drawers of tools and random plumbing parts I might need on the fly, frozen food, refrigerator food, glue, rags, and yeah.... pretty much everything about this hobby.... Except the tank.

  7. Before RODI was a thing

    I run my system without rodi, have been for years. Not joking. I use Prime and that's about it. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    That torch is redunculous Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  9. Design my tank

    I hear it helps. I've always wanted a Crosshatch trigger (reef safe?) and an Achilles Tang. Never had a tank big enough for the tang, well I did but it wouldn't have been a good idea, but they are beautiful. Crosshatches are awesome as well.... To me at least. But I love triggers in a reef tank. Blue throat, Niger, ugh..... Just avoid huma huma triggers. I had one, one time, that never touched a coral and I loved that fish. Bought 3 more since losing the first one and they ALL ate coral, like first thing they did when entering the tank was take a bite of a coral then go hide. Provoking me wanting to spear said fish.

  10. Utter Chaos group buy

    Is this pic from your tank? If so I blow raspberries in your general direction Sir. Those are nice. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  11. Wtb emeralds on fire

  12. New tank build: Here we go now.

    Now that is a nice tank to start with. I can only imagine what the end result will be.
  13. led Lighting help

    Some of the reviews are complaining about the spread, others saying it's very blue. But as stated a few times now, you get what you pay for. Honestly, I would probably pass. I have had zero success with LED's that were under $100....HTH
  14. Cat issues

    I would second this. Wont hurt to try the Coconut oil before entertaining 1k in expenses. I would imagine the cat is like a family member though so I can understand the pressure or concern
  15. Big frogspawn colony

    Wow....what a deal. Wish I had room
  16. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    This is pretty awesome. I was going to try this as well at some point but it seems the market for clowns is saturated. Knowing my luck I'd end up with hundreds of clowns and wouldn't even be able to give them away.
  17. Lights

    Dude, how many lights do you have? Do you have like a room dedicated to spare lights? Makes me feel like I am only faking it since I only have a few spare MH set ups sitting around now.
  18. Cat issues

    What a drag. Hope all works out well though.
  19. I would like to see a grow out competition with Ricordia. Reason being is they are dying off in the wild and it would be awesome to keep this beautiful coral alive. Personally I hope to be able to donate back to our natural reefs someday providing people stop doing everything we are doing to kill our reefs. I would prefer NOT to run it, rather just see it go down and maybe join in. I will however help if needed. Prizes could be something like gift cards to sponsors purchased with entry fees. I see a few places that do group buys or bulk orders of Ricordia still. If we can't get all the same one we can just do like a first come first serve type deal for the specimen they grow out. Haven't seen many ugly Ricordia. Just an idea. We've seen ZOA's, gonipora, and some others.... Let's get done Ric's going on. I would imagine the duration would have to be extended.

  20. Again, I'm not hosting this, so if someone is willing to do so they can pick the rules. I asked the club on my last round to take over the grow outs to standardize rules and stuff like that but it didn't happen so the perk there is whoever does host it can pick whatever rules they want.

  21. The idea behind these is simple, education through entertainment and interactiveness. Events like these bring members. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  22. I ran 2 or 3 here before feeling the same way. I don't think it is understood how much work goes into running one of these. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  23. Not to mention the hours of fragging exact counts and excessive amounts of glue Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  24. Oh I get it. I think the last one I did was for members only. But a lot of non members expressed concerns over it being a cash grab for the club. Either way I don't want to host it. I will help but I'm not doing that again here. It's fun and it's great to get the club involved, but it's a lot of work, lot of phone calls (for me anyway, calling sponsors for donations, getting custom plugs made, etc), and not a lot of perks. I also think prizes should consist of only gift cards so sponsors can get some income. If someone wants to host it I found a couple of places that have them for $10 a piece on bulk orders.

  25. Writing the rules was frustrating enough. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
