  1. FYI - 20 longs at Petco for $9!

  2. well, i dont want to be left out. One for me. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. Missing bags of frags

    well, I think i heard Holly say that she sent fingerprints to the lab so now all the remains to do is find the perp, humiliate on face book, and then i will give a fingernail fragging demonstration. But for karmas sake i will get some more zoas for you. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Acrylic help

    Simple is ones without teeth. I don't have a CNC machine. But yeah, I have been known to crank some stuff out but in all honesty, its going to be a "I will build it while you watch me" kind of thing from here on out. I built a sump for a member.. had him verify measurements twice.... and then I get " Hey, its not the right size" (and no payment to date).
  5. Group buy or growout contest?

    Totally unrelated but since we are on the subject.. you know what would be super cool.. a club owned coral QT system. I have the pieces for one but have not set it up yet.. still wondering how i should go about maintaining cal and alk. But i have thought many times.. i would gladly pay $20-$30 a month to have a place to QT corals. For people that purchase any amount of corals or have a large tank it would be more than worth it. just a thought. There is day care for cats, might as well have coral day care Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    I think he is part retriever. He must follow my wrecking ball of a turbo snail around and pick stuff up. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  9. Going Sockless

    the word on the street is the 200 seem more coarse than there felt conterparts. The flip side, the 100s seem finer than the felt ones. Mine start clogging every 2-3 days but I have a LOT of flow through my sump.. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. Missing bags of frags

    I brought spectra some frags of both of these zoas in the picture. The were in ziplock bag with "Spectra" and my salinity, dkh, and Ph written on the bag. I dont want to believe someone would just take them, but unless someone rebagged them, i dont know how you could accidentally take a zip lock bag. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  11. Going Sockless

    The mesh socks are the bomb!! It literally takes me 2-3 minutes to clean four of them. I did a bulk purchase of the 4" 100 micron ones a while back. They clog faster for sure but they also catch almost everything. I sold a bunch to R3, he may have some left. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Missing bags of frags

    how do you grab a sandwich bag with someone elses name on it by mistake? Let me know if it doesnt show up.. i can frag some more for you.. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  13. Anyone have one of these (or similar)

    step one.. avoid tap like the plague except for solvent. Tap plastics charges roughly 4x the going rate on stuff. Its highway robbery..but they have a cute retail store. Call professional plastics in tualatin. 3/8 black cast acrylic is what you are looking for. How much.. well that depends on what we are making. They are typically about 5" tall and 2" deep (dont know what your plumbing looks like).. I will be at the meeting tomorrow if you are going. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  14. Looking to buy 90-125g tank

    i have a custom 1/2" acrylic 4x2x2. fully braced, no bowing on panes. It comes out to 120g I think. comes with decent wood stand and sump.. sump was freshwater design so you will probably want to modify it. there are some scratches in the front.. not major but they will need to be sanded out. $400 takes it all..

  15. i have aome frogspawn i need to relocate.m Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  16. Anyone have one of these (or similar)

    One thing to remember about toothless is that the actual thickness of the water entering the weir is very very thin. Thinner than you would think. I push roughly 3,00gph through my display and that generates less than 1/8" column of water across the top. Plus its absolutely silent. Like dead silent.. the water just runs down the inner wall. lastly, i forgot to mention.. those bulkheads are not backwards, they are placed that way so you can have a thin inner box... just wide enough to fit the nut of the bulkhead as opposed to the whole deal. Anyways.. I suppose that if you got the acrylic and beer you could come over and i could make you an overflow. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  17. Anyone have one of these (or similar)

    i lost a small clown through the overflow so I put some eggcrate and then a piece of polycarbonate in there. because it so long, and the flow is laminar over the edge there is only an 1/8" gap or so.. maybe a quarter. shortly after the install my melaranus tested its function. He flopped up there, then panicked and flopped back. Now, if i could only find a way to keep my starfish off my closed loop intake.... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  18. Tiny Tank, Tiny Budget Contest

    looks great!! what kind of tang are you going to put in there Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  19. Anyone have one of these (or similar)

    i made one like this for my new tank. I went toothless so it is quieter and easier to clean. mine is 5.5' long and has three 1.5" bulkeads. Bulkheads will leak through the threads on any wet side without a gasket so in this instance you only need ONE gasket that is sandwiched between the inner box and outer box. I should have put a brace in thr middle of the back box as it is now bowing..but out of sight out of mind. I would recommend sch. 80 bulkheads on a big tank. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Not mine but bored at work. Would make a great sump... big QT, or just buy it and place it somewhere in the way so you are always asking yourself why you bought it. https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/grd/d/aquarium-55-gal-fish-or/6518633263.html
