    Good afternoon

    So........................... Here is the new Stealth 44" sump, Eschopps X350 Skimmer and Fluval SP6 return pump. I am still running my 75 gallon refugium, and in the background of the last pic, the 44 gallon Brute is full of 40 gallons of Kalk for my ATO.

    Hey there, I thought I would introduce myself since I am new here. My name is Carla Ehlers, and I live in NW Montana. First off, thank you for letting an out-of-stater in.......................lol. I am hoping to be able to post some pics of my tanks, so here goes :). These are all tied into one 100 gallon sump, along with a 75 gallon refugium and a skimmer that used to be on my 300. there are 2 40 gallon breeders and the 28 gallon cube.

    Well thanks, it was definitely quite the weekend when we did the change. I also got a new custom sump from Crystal Reef, new return pump, new skimmer. I figured it was time to change it all :).

    OMG, it has been a little bit since I posted in this group. I have been a little busy changing some things around, so please forgive me. In July of this year, I went from from my 3 tank system, to just one tank, a custom built 190 from Crystal Reef in Bellingham WA. It was a chore, but with some friends from Seattle and Spokane, we managed to do the turn around in one weekend in July. There was beer, lots of good food, and better yet, a ton of fun. This new system is a little over a month and a half old now, and things are not looking too bad at all. I waited about 3 weeks after it got going and then brought in a clean up crew from Reeftopia, and the little guys have been working diligently to clear up all the algae from the cycle, and things are starting to look pretty darn good. There were only a couple of casualties, I lost my big Oregon Tort colony, it is now about 18 frags worth, but the STN has stabilized and I am crossing my fingers that I will be able to grow it back over time. See you all on October 27th if there isn't 3' of snow on the passes on the way over .
  6. Had a little time with my Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens today. This will be a few posts :). Sorry for spamming.........................lol.

    I always shoot in RAW mode and that makes processing a little easier for me. A little temperature adjustment and see what goes after that. Oh.................. and use something besides a cell phone, they take nice pics, but I am rather happy with my Canon DSLR

    Fragfest 2018

    Yes, I was gonna try to make it over for this years event. It is kind of a crappy time of year for me to travel that way, but for right now, my plans are to try . I don't know if the farthest distance traveled is noteworthy, but die hard reef folks do what they have to sometimes.

    What do you do?

    Let's see................... this is a pretty cool thread :). I spent 37.5 years at the local phone company in Kalispell Mt., Lovingly now known as Centurylink. I retired in August of 2012 because of my back. Please don't ask me about phones, I already forgot whatever I used to know. I took up the reef hobby in 1999, and still don't know anything :). I have found that I can answer technical questions about the Grateful Dead, Bowling, yeah, I was one of those too, and maybe the reef hobby if the questions are easy. I also found out that I am really, really good at clearing snow off of my driveway lately, and that makes the deer around here pretty freaking happy, at least someone appreciates it.......................................lol. I drink Crown Royal on the rocks............................. so if anybody ever needs help with that, let me know. I trade frags for Blue Moon Belgian White, gave up selling them cuz I really just enjoy getting people stuff they like.I have also been told I am pretty ok with a camera :), I am a Canon lady.

    Yeppers, that is my Oregon Tort, close to 10 years old in early 2018. I haven't killed it yet..................................lol. And yes, that is a purple stylo. I think I got that From Duane O. in Seattle late 2015. The green Stylo is from a Friend in Spokane. And Thank you
