  1. Black Friday fish deals!

    Happy thanksgiving to all! Well, there is medium bad news and good news. The medium bad news is that I have a wonderful job waiting for me in Texas in just a few months and have to take down my tanks. The good news is that I need to clean out my garage which means lots of good deals! Please do not message me via the website as for some reason I don’t receive notifications anymore. Just give me a text or call 612-481-7912. Thanks! Lots of free stuff I will throw in with purchases too! Fully decked out Neptune Apex aquacontroller with display, probes (over 6 months old, but they work great), two apex plug in outlets, you name it.

  2. Black Friday fish deals!

    Hey! Sorry that I dropped off the map. Between day clinics and working nights its been insane. Are you going to the meeting? Can I bring them then?
  3. Black Friday fish deals!

    Deepest thanks! Will be in An Antonio. Likely will around move around July, but may sell my house in the next few months just to make the transition easier and to free me up to buy a place down there. I feel bad I am not staying— they gave me a great opportunity here but it still could not match Texas and in Texas it is exactly what I have always hoped to do. If you know anyone in the area who would be willing to put up with me, my dog and kitties for a few months while I transition down there and with the end of my appointment here, would greatly appreciate it!

  4. Black Friday fish deals!

    Also, only used a few months 10 gallon tank innovative marine with near new eheim upgraded pump and circulator. Worked great! $50 I also will be soon looking at selling all of my downstairs tank — the Red Sea reefer sumped with return pump, octopus skimmer with AI light And if anyone is interested will let it all go with the Red Sea white 30 gallon (ish) sumped tank including the corals, Apex and MP10 for $1500 (money is time) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Free biocube 29+stand

    I got this for free and am paying the favor back. Works beautifully-- although I have taken it down for a bit now as I have upgraded. Has metal halide lights if you can figure out how to use them! First come first served on this one, and preference to whoever can come and visit Johns landing to pick it up tonight!

  7. WTB Calcium Reactor

    Got some calcium reactin' that we want to do. Anyone have a reactor they would be willing to part with? Thanks!
  8. Did someone say seahorse?!

    With all this talk of seahorses, I couldn't help but post a few pics of the amazing new additions to my "family" that Jeff from Cuttlefish ordered from me over the last few weeks. I have never seen such a beautiful group of seahorses in my life. Thought that they may have robbed one of the aquariums in Cali. The reddish orange female that is absolutely stunning. They are also the hippocampus ingens- one of the larger variety of seahorses. So far I they have also been eating more frozen selcon enriched mysis than I can almost keep up with. They also get the occasional phytoplankton enriched frozen brine. I know I am horrible about posting lately... I just have too many amazing corals to stare at and already spend so much time on research for work. However, think you will find these little guys quite attractive.

  9. Well, as the epic Saga in the quest for the most beautiful nano, Jeff @ Cuttlefish has once again opened the door for what I officially consider the most alluring tank I have ever owned. In terms of a system, the Red Sea max series is so nice. Honestly the tank sort of just runs itself and I just tinker. I can't take credit for all of the curating, though. The staff at Cuttlefish just sort of tells me what looks good and I buy it [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Did someone say seahorse?!

    Best seahorses ever!! Thank you!!!
  11. Did someone say seahorse?!

    Yes! here is to hoping! I was so impressed that Jeff was able to get all of them in exotic colors. One of the others has already changed to brown (but she is the best eater of the bunch and has already grown significantly). Fingers crossed for the others.
  12. Did someone say seahorse?!

    haha... Yay!! I am so happy for you two!! Sirena is going to love it. 60 cube is a perfect size. I totally forgot how fulfilling it is to have seahorses. Its an odd with feeling with seahorses compared other aquarium creatures-- I feel like you are always on the search for the next coral, but there is something about a seahorse tank that makes you feel so happy and content. Watching them eat and play is like having a mini family living downstairs.
  13. Could have never have done this without you and your amazing crew at the store!!
  14. I had a bubble tip in my larger downstairs tank initially. He was a bit of a pain but this fire nem has been awesome. He has tried to move a few times but I just kept putting him back on his rock and eventually he stayed. Watching the symbiotic relationship with the clowns is memorizing and one of my favorite things about the tank. Highly recommended if you have the time to watch the tank carefully for the first few weeks. Also, I'm very biased, but I adore the Picasso clowns-- especially the locally bred tank raised babies that host which you see Cuttlefish get in occasionally.
  15. Thank you! Yes, target feed all of the nems. No babies yet, but here is to hoping! I upgraded to the new tank around a month ago so I think that they are still in flux from the change. Some of them are such Chubbs though.. think it should not be too long?
  16. Rock Nem Love Affair

    So I was able to catch the rock nem sale at WWC. Just got these babies in tonight and have to admit I am in love! I really have never had them before.... Would really love to see everyone's rock nems to learn more about the color variations out there! And of course, the affectionately named Dr. Bruce Banner that I got from Cuttlefish (and am holding on to for a friend)!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. New red sea reefer 170!

    Excited to get started on a new tank! Just arrived home late last night from two weeks away. I wanted to give a HUGE shout-out to Jeff at Cuttlefish Corals who has (for almost the last two weeks) been so kind as to order, hold on to, and then deliver my new tank! The light is just a cheap light from ebay that I was planning on using in the sump. On wednesday I hope to go and pick up my new ReeFi light from Daniel! I have also been meaning to give a shout- out as well about this Gonipora also from Cuttlefish Corals (hands down one of the most beautiful corals I have ever seen): While I was away I was able to visit one of the shops in north LA and pick up this guy:

    I am totally down for this!! Let's do it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Rock Nem Love Affair

    So it's true... I have never seen a color morph like that Dr Banner from cuttlefish. I hear he is getting more rock nems in soon tho... You feed only once a week? I have been feeding every other day. Hopefully that's not too crazy. Dr Banner seems to be doing well.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  24. Party Bus Details (official thread)

    Sad news, I will not be able to make it on the party bus. Hopefully there is someone who can take my place? Also, maybe I could still get those raffle tickets and join up with the rest of the group as soon as I can in the late morning or early afternoon?
  25. haha.. we want pics! Also, technically caulerpa and chaeto are types of seaweed. What sort of seaweed do you have in mind and where would it be sourced from?
