    Like @albertareef said you should just be checking resistance to verify that the pickup coils are OK.

    I found this with regards to testing the distributor. That is a chunk of change to drop just as a test. Pick a part in Tualatin might be cheaper? https://www.yotatech.com/forums/f2/no-start-condition-ignition-coil-test-info-3vze-89-95-a-10543/

    A buddy of mine has a Lincoln MKVIII that would periodically die and not start. Swore up and down that it was the fuel pump. So I offered to help him, so we drop the exhaust and the fuel tank put new pump in and put it all back together and it still doesn’t work. Did a little troubleshooting of my own and found it didn’t have spark and the old fuel pump was just fine. To save him some cash we dropped the tank again and put old pump back in. Ran down to the parts store and for $26 a new crankshaft position sensor was procured and after it was installed the Lincoln fired right up.

    Hair algae

    Troll Snail!
  6. This algae popped up a while back and i trimmed it off and covered it with superglue but it has come back. It is only on this small rock with some zoas on it and as you can see Benny the Blenny likes to perch on it but not eat it. The bristle worms love it too. It feels like plastic and crunches when you pull it off.

    Identification Help Please

    I used those terms in my original google search and got nothing! I just searched cladophoropsis and looked at the images and found this(top two pics which looks exactly like the stuff I had): https://www.marinelifephotography.com/marine/seaweeds/cladophora-catenata.htm It was only on one little rock and I chucked it.

    Identification Help Please

    It’s not bryopsis. It’s like plastic, very stiff and snaps when you break it. Kind of looked like palm trees. I wasn’t taking any chances of it spreading so I tossed the rock it was on. The zoas had already migrated to othe rocks making the decision easier.

    Grow Out Ricordea?

    This one has split about 6 or 7 times. I gave the first one that hopped off the original plug away. One or two of the splits didn’t make it. I’ve got two plugs now, one with two on it, and another with one.

    Grow Out Ricordea?

    I just put 3 on plugs this morning. Don’t know if they will all look as bubbly.

    May Picture of the Month - Anemone

    I give up!
  13. I have two plugs with zoas, one of which has a camo shroom in the middle, 1 plug that has a single shroom and 1 plug with fade to green star polyps on it. In Salem, but I work in Tualatin so I can meet you there too. Mark
  14. @Taylorhardy1 has the zoa plug without the shroom, @ChrisQ has the other zoa plug with the shroom. Still have the standalone shroom and star polyps for the taking. PM me with how you guys want to arrange pickup.
  15. OK, they are both the same kind but don't look like it in the pictures.

    Live amphipods & mysis for sale

    I found this link with lots of good info on exactly how to raise copepods which may transfer over to amphipods. https://www.brineshrimpdirect.com/c90/raising-live-rotifers-copepods-c199.html
  18. BRS used to state that their calculator was based on Randy's recipe #2. Since they switched to their pharma pouch it no longer says that. But the two calculate the same dose.
  19. It’s all about the search terms. 😄
  20. Found this: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1199236 Sounds like a eunice worm maybe?

    What SPS questions do you have?

    Think I just started it off too high in the tank. I've since moved it down, hopefully it recovers.

    What SPS questions do you have?

    Because I think I nuked my latest addition.

    Plumbing cement

    I’ve used it without issue. Just give the glue enough time to out gas prior to putting into service.
