    50 Clean up Crew

    I’d do about 20 snails. Variety between trochus, astrea, nessarius.... about 8-10 red legged hermits, couple emerald crabs. Maybe an urchin..... that should be a good start

    Prospective new tank build

    Long time no see Dr tavan! Sounds like big plans. Off the top of my head you might want to consider refugium dimensions on sumps for red seas if your gonna run triton. You need that 10% fuge. Unless swapping out sumps. I know the new waterbox ones have an adjustable panel or something. Also, why not just run a Neptune dos vs ghl since your running apex controller already? I know you would need to buy 2 dos’ but programming gonna be easier with the apex in the long run. Flow might be a prob with peninsula. Those new nero’s Look nice but i don’t know if it’ll get water to the other side of the tank. I think I’d just run that gyre instead. Or have it in addition. Anyways, that’s all I can think of from initially reading your list. Keep us updated!

    I used to build enclosures back in the day. When you say “upper hole” what do you mean? A port ?

    I have a router or jigsaw if you wanna borrow. if you never used a router before might be safer to use the jigsaw but wont be as clean. but your not gonna see the hole anyways

    Thanks! I went out about 30 times by myself on the clack and sandy and Only got 1. Used a ML rod with 15 lb braid to a 8lb fluorocarbon leader. Got em with a single bead 😬. Only about 30” and 15lbs. After that accomplishment I now stick to rockfish/ lingcod on a boat 😝. I respect the guys with the patience for steelheading.
  12. Is it the gen 2 vectra with the upgraded housing? You can tell if housing is black

    Thanks for the advice! I’m relatively new here but fish on and off all my life. I’ve only had luck here with spinning reels for steelhead. I do use baitcasters saltwater fishing but usually with heavy tackle. Caught a ton of rockfish and some nice sized lingcod on baitcasters. I feel with the finicky steelhead here, I get better luck with spinning reels and super light tackle . Steelhead is what I most fish for. I would greatly appreciate any advice from you for steelhead fishing with baitcasters in the PNW!! I never fished for bass also

    Going to be jetty fishing for the first time at barview jetty this weekend. Im usually just fishing steelhead and trout so my gears too light. im looking if someone can be kind enough to lend me a rod i can use before i invest in one. Just to be sure i actually like the dangerous rocks lol. I can trade for a nice frag also. im guessing something in the 9' range. medium/ heavy.... A salmon rod could prolly even work with 25-30 lb test. Spinning reel preferred as i suck at baitcasters lol. Thanks in advance! Someones gonna want a free frag right?! Located in Tigard.
