  1. Breaking down 120 gallon tank

    I’ll take the rastas if not spoken for
  2. Black Friday/Small Business Saturday Specials!!!

    i wonder who got the jawbreakers! i got five $20 bags and got a nice goni, couple acans, and a fbeautiful favia..... last one was a discosoma though lol. all in all great deal though!
  3. Water flow?

    I’m running 2 jebao pp8s on a 90 cube and it’s more than enough flow on the lowest setting. I’d recommend 2 mp40s or a gyre and an mp10
  4. Need some help identifying

    Maybe a peanut worm???? But they're usually more brownish.... see them darker like that sometimes. I think they are harmless
  5. Need some replacement lighting help.

    Used ocean revive floating around these forums all the time or $50 more gets you brand new
  6. Help me decide!!!

    so whats up? you wanna adopt the haps? just want a good home for them and they came from a 240 like yours so that would be perfect. yours free if you want them.
  7. Help me decide!!!

    im in the same predicament but I think im leaning more towards the basement ( garage for me) because of all the pros you mentioned and I was always paranoid of kids messing or scratching my tank when I was not there lol...... We have no kids and babysit a lot.. My current tank has a ton of scratches because of crazy kids. On a side note,,, your peacock/ hap tank is lookin awesome! come pick up the bucco and exo from me since im tired of people trying to buy them and throw them in a 20 gallon
  8. Black box leds are awesome!

    yeah it looked like he definitely demo'd one of the super low quality black boxes. Im sure the ocean revives , photons, sb's, etc have much better build quality and par distribution. He should definitely demo against these upgraded versions also since i feel thats what the majority of the reefing community are using
  9. anyone know of any portland african cichlid forums or groups i can sell some cichlids on? Been looking and i cant find any. African cichlid community surprisingly so small here with wetspot tropical fish being local. Thanks in advance.
  10. cichlid forums/ groups

    I know, I just hate it cause I know they'll turn around and sell them for like $50 to someone who's gonna put them in a small tank or wrong environment.
  11. cichlid forums/ groups

    No trying to sell also.. the remaining fish from my African cichlid days
  12. SCA - Tanks and PNP Systems

    me too! im currently deciding between sca, cad, and crystal dynamics..... sca gets awesome customer service reviews. I think Im gonna decide based on who makes the better stands. the wood versions and not the mdf options. any input would help greatly. Like xmas_one, im also looking in that 120-150 gallon range.
  13. I moved a 90 all the way from Los Angeles. Just get a couple 30 gallon totes from Home Depot and a couple of battery powered air pumps with air stones. Good thing u won't need a heater on the transport since it's still hot. Reuse the 50 or so gallons in the totes and have water being made at your new house already to add in. I would also use this time to fully clean your substrate. You should still have enough BB from your live rock.

  15. Cichlids for sale

    This is the exocochromis anagenys. These guys much harder to come by than the buccos. It's a male/ female.
  16. Cichlids for sale

    Yep he's a nice large male prolly about 6" the exocochromis is fully colored male also ... hard to get good pics of him though
  17. Cichlids for sale

    i had an f1 pundamilia that i already got rid of. Couple of haps left, exocochromis anagenys and a bucchochromis nototaenia. The exos had already bred before in the past also and a tough hap to find full grown males
  18. Cichlids for sale

    Lol same with me. The African cichlid community is so small here. Still have a couple stunners I need to get rid of also.
  19. WTB- 50Gish cube setup

  20. New to PNWMAS from Seattle

    I believe a 4x2x2 is a 120 captjack
  21. Longtime cichlid hobbyist first time reefer! Well I kind of stumbled onto this. My sis is a realtor and she tells me she's selling a house and the previous owner asked her to get rid of the tank that was there. I go there expecting a small 10 gal but was surprised to see a nice 90 cube reef. It looked abandoned for about a month but still had the powerheads going and the lights on timers. The tank was a mess but I could still see life. So I salvaged the tank, got everything cleaned up and set it up at home. I'm new to saltwater so I'm learning a lot right now. Here's the tank all cleaned up and from what I was able to save. If anyone can help IDing anything would be helpful. From my research looks like green tip/ purple tip frogspawn, hammer coral, candy cane coral, brain coral, some mushrooms I guess? Any input appreciated.

  24. Greetings from Tigard!

    Lol when I moved here last year all my cichlids died because escrow took an extra 3 weeks. I had 50+ full grown African cichlids sitting in Rubbermaids for 1 month..,.,... sad thing is , they all died 3 days before escrow closed. Prolly 1 fish died and ammonia poisoning got all of them
