    Equipment for free and for sale

    If the protein skimmer works well I think I’ll take it. And I think I’ll go for the LEDs and driver too while I’m at it. Are the LEDs themselves used (and if so, for how long?)

    smoking deal on a 300DD

    Resealing it properly would make for an awesome tank. But then again, resealing it properly is easier said than done. And the risk is huge. Tempted as I may be, the risk of it leaking or even blowing is too large.
  3. I’m a little interested in the giant hermit crab, but I don’t think I can justify going all the way down south from Portland for it :/

    NEW Par Meter Booking Thread

    My bad. It’s fine for now. Feel free to skip me (or do so if you already have). Sorry for the delayed response, I’ve been quite busy lately.

    For sale: 4-5 inch Indian Black trigger

    They are in fact, different species, melichtys indicus and melichtys niger respectively, with different coloration, the indicus has thin gold looking lines on its black body, and when stressed can change into a pale brown color. Its tail is a waxing crescent with a white band at the end. The melichtys niger has shiny blue spots mixed into its body with what looks like a yellowish reddish blush near its face. Its tail is a waning crescent like the niger trigger’s tail, and is fully black. Here is my fish.
  6. Will post a picture soon, $100 He will complete copper quarantine on September 4th. There’s nothing wrong with him, it’s just the vendor sent me the wrong fish (I wanted a hawaiin black triggerfish). Still a beautiful fish, but not on my intended stocking list. Going rate for these at this size is $120 and up, but I just honestly want more room already.

    Corals for sale

    Yeah I would rather know what you have first.
  8. Citrus mistress, apple berry, and maaaaybe a duncan (need to think on that one). Might also contemplate a goniopora but I already have a frag of wicked witch goniopora that I am slowly growing out. But I’d love a frag of the apple berry for sure. I will be at the meeting this saturday if nothing goes out of plan.

    Quarantined fish for sale

    Ahaha. Yeah you’d want to move all the coral out of course, keep them in another tank that undergoes the fallow as you essentially sterilize your current one. More of a pain to do and potentially not worth it. I am contemplating your angel, buuuut, not sure as it could be an LPS eater and my tank is lps dominant. Hmm. I’ll get back to you on that. I still haven’t had the time to make my mind up.
  10. Might be interested in all corals. Any idea what you’d go for just all corals? I keep mixed/aggressive reef so the smaller fish are a gamble.
  11. Thanks for the frags Holly, really enjoying them. They are currently im quarantine, but I can’t wait to introduce them to the DT.

    Diatom filters

    So, I’ve been reading up lately and I stumbled upon this relic. Diatomaceous earth filters. With tiny pore sizes, they can essentially filter out many microorganisms from our water, clearing up the water and reducing if not eliminating the spread of ich-like organisms (though there’s some debate about this latter one). I am interested in taking the plunge and getting one, but I want other people’s perspective and also, I have realized that the main company that made them for reef tanks, Vortex, no longer makes them, leaving three options, DIY, get a retrofitted vortex filter from amazon, or buy one intended for a pool (too big and also a little pricier than other two options). What do you lot think about DE filters? Do any of you use them? And of the three options in procuring one, which would be the best to go with?

    Meeting on August 25th!

    Then I think I’ll go with that. LED lights and gift cards sound awesome. I was going to recommend some frags/clams/whatnot but a giftcard of course is more flexible and hence better.

    Meeting on August 25th!

    I’ll be there, probably. As for prizes, uh, not sure what the standard is/pricing for the raffle.
