  1. LOL. My life is a drama. Learn to expect the ups and downs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  2. I think someone πŸ‘† is going to need a bigger tank soon lol. As for mine, I think they're done. After falling off the plug an ending up against my closed loop intake screen. They're all but gone at this point😑
  3. Well, mine came off the plug. Just found them stuck to my CL intake. Will see how they recover 😐
  4. ID help

    And they are lethal to pretty much every coral they can touch, so give it space lol
  5. ID help

    Looks like a plating form of hydnophora
  6. Acro Grow Out Info??

    Don't think it was a grow out, just a group buy
  7. 92g Oregon Reef

    Hello all. After living in Hawaii for the past 5 years, we have moved up to the Pacific Northwest and it's time to get my fingers wet again. I'm a long time reefer, with my last tank being a 225g(5'x3'x2') custom peninsula that was taken down in a rush prior to moving to the middle of the Pacific lol.So, it's time to build another tank, and on a bit of a budget. I've got some items so far, and will list the details as I go. Others I'm waiting on until I find the right deal.THE TANK:I picked up a used acrylic 60"x18"x18" tank I found on Craigslist. For $75 for the tank and stand, I couldn't really pass it up
  8. 92g Oregon Reef

    Well, had my first rookie mistake with this tank...been trying to figure out what was going on with my tank this week. Lesson learned: pay attention which bottle is which when you put the caps back on. Dumped 1/4 of the big BRS bottle of what I thought was magnesium into the tank. Discovered today as I was starting to set up my new-to-me doser that I had actually dumped in was the calcium component...😲

    This one...

    Duncans are easy. Just cut one of the stalks below the tissue using heavy cutters. As Emerald said, kind of like cutting a tree branch.
  12. Potential Suplier for Coral Frag Plugs

    Heck yes. I'll need to pick some up before long anyhow
  13. 92g Oregon Reef

    Not a lot to update as I've been busy, but a few things... 1. Replaced my now undersized vertex omega 130 skimmer with an 8" cone from RLSS. Loving it, a long with the Avast swabbie that it came with. 2. Also picked up a pair of 65g drums to set up a proper mixing station. Still need to do the plumbing on it. 3. And built up a stand for a future frag tank I'm considering building myself and mounted a DJ power station to expand my available plugs...😁
  14. Vertex Omega 130 Protein Skimmer

  15. Like new in box Vertex Omega 130 skimmer. Used for 6 months, and rocks once you get it to the right depth in your sump. They are known to be finicky if they are set too deep, but mine was rock steady with the top of the outflow T pipe just above the water line. I more than doubled my system volume and have plans to add on in the future, so I needed something a bit bigger. $175
  16. Don't have a pic of my own yet... And I'm sure you would πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  17. Lol. I'm pretty well tapped after buying that shroom on sunday... πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  18. That blasto is sexy...Cody needs to frag it up for us 😁
  19. Another tank moving thread

    Not sure I can help, but definitely pull the sand. It will add a ton of weight you don't need while trying not to drop your new tank lol. You can rinse it and reuse, but you will still get a bit of a cycle no matter what you do. Good to have some bacterial additives on hand to help.
  20. April Meeting At Cuttle Fish and Coral!!

    Unfortunately I didn't win anything in the raffles, but that was one hell of a gathering lol
  21. Oregon Mummy Eye

    Ah, got my hopes up. I'm looking as well lol
  22. Free Canister Filters

    Yep. They're gone
  23. Free Canister Filters

    Came with the tank. Would need a thorough cleaning and is missing 1 small plug at the top of one of them. I have no use for them and they're taking up space...
  24. CNC Auction 3-8
