  1. NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    Yes, I went through this issue early this year. It could be informative for Manny to review my thread "MQ 520 is not a PAR meter, right" started on April 7th. Bottom line is that the numbers that the meter is reading are, for all intents and purposes, equivalent to PAR. It took me several hours and dozens of reading to finally get the hang of the meter. It ends up being quite easy to use. You will see that moving the meter just a couple of inches can change the PAR significantly.
  2. Stock Update From Santa Monica Filtration®

    I don't understand how your selection chart works. I have a 30 gallon tank and your chart tells me that you recommend ten different products. How does that help me select which one to buy?
  3. Great shots from nanoreefer!

    Is the first photo the favia? If so, what is the second photo?
  4. WTB Nano skimmer

    My Hydor slim skim went bye bye. Needed a skimmer for 30 gallon all in one. JBJ rimmless, but probably many models will work. You name the fair price. Even better, used Hydor that still works. Can also use a hang-on back for other 30 gallon tank.
  5. December 2017 Holiday Meeting Pics

    Hey Emerald, one of the best (lightweight) movies ever!
  6. Share the love: Idaho Grape Montipora

    When the day comes when I can grow healthy corals, I will be sharing the love, and giving you credit. Thanks.
  7. Generator Sizing

    I have been happy with the Briggs and Stratton P2200 inverter generator. On line cost was $630. The Honda line is thought of as the Cadillac of generators, but more expensive. The standard generators are much cheaper but very loud, heavy, big and lack any features. I was able to run both fridges, deep freezer, television, and some lights. Quite convenient.
  8. Share the love: Idaho Grape Montipora

    Me too! Love the color of this coral.
  9. WTB external pump

    I have several Little Giant pumps. 2MDXT-3, 2MDQX-SC, 3MDSC, 1MD
  10. Kind of fish

    Looks like a damsel to me.
  11. Chaeto Reactors compared to Algae Scrubbers

    The preamble intrigues me.
  12. I guess I was wondering about the overflow, style of drains, size and number of returns. It would be helpful information for a potential buyer.
  13. What are the tank's dimensions, and how is it plumbed?
  14. The Evergreen State College - Aquariums

    Their display tank is a beautiful collection of Puget Sound critters. But you must be talking about their many other tanks, some or all with warm water.
  15. Who do you root for, Maxspect or Apex?

    Where are the APEX WAV fans? Please speak up. Has Maxspect solved the snail problem so often mentioned in R2R in past years?
