  1. I'll take that today if your attending the meeting!
  2. Wont hurt me any 😲 I was scrubbing frags I was moving to my grandmothers tank, trying to keep hers pest free as long as I can.
  3. Is that ricordea mushroom easy to separate? How much for that?
  4. OMG If they pass I will take that bad mamajama. I want some of that vibrant coraline!
  5. Ok I’ll bring some into a LFS and see what they get then. Any input on high PH?
  6. It’s an API test kit. I just realized it’s a freshwater master kit. I don’t remember my API kit at home indicating it freshwater or saltwater. Is there a difference between saltwater and freshwater tests for ammonia, PH, nitrite, and nitrate? Another thing I havnt read up on yet is her PH. Her tank location gets a lot of natural light so the Ph gets up to 8.4. Is this something that corals will withstand or will she have to dose something to bring Ph down? Mine stays between 7.8-8.2
  7. So i have been helping my grandma set up and cycle her new waterbox. It seems to have a very slow cycle or maybe the algae is consuming the nitrates so they never show on tests? Last week we added some snails to help consume some of the algae. It’s also really weird, a lot more string like then the hair algae that I have had in my tank. Some history. She purchased the rock dry and I placed it in a cooler with water and filter floss from my tank. It sat like that for about 2-3 weeks before we moved it into her tank. I never did test that cooler water to monitor the cycle. The live sand was bagged caribsea. For the 2 weeks she added seachem stability at the recommended dose age. The following 2 weeks she added intstant ocean biospira at the recommended doesage. I also placed a new large piece of filter floss in her tank that came from my tank. Once the tank was set up there has been a single clownfish to introduce ammonia. She has been feeding twice a week as much as the fish eats. We have done a 25% water change once a week for the last month. My questions are has the cycle even started? Did it maybe spike during the time in the cooler? Should I stop doing water changes? I’m worried about the ammonia going above .50 with the clown and the snails. Is there a snail I should add that eats this type of algae?
  8. Not complaining either just giving feedback, have not heard anything yet.
  9. I'd be interested in some to!
  10. I have food grade bicarb by the ton 😂
  11. Ahhhh man that disk could have been the seed for the other post asking for coraline 😂
  12. I added snails that had them on the shells, then I scraped a little bit off to free float in the water volume when I put them in. I also noticed that an acentic t5 bulb really made it take off like crazy.
  13. Think about the scenario of online community sales. If you were getting something off of craigslist or Facebook market place, would you expect the person to drop the stuff off inside Fred Meyer at the customer service desk? Or would you use the public space as somewhere neutral to make an exchange? @SuncrestReef is a very personable, and giving person. This is not the first thing that I've seen come up for free from him. Many others would post this at a reduced price, but he would rather give back to the community and make a positive interaction out of the deal as well. Not to mention I'm sure like me, everyone is constantly looking for an excuse to go into CNC. In the little time since I have joined this club, I have found the members to be positive, welcoming, and tight knit more like a reefing family. I would take a step back assess the scenario before you continue creating the reputation of being crabby. Thanks house hold of payneful love
  14. We bought an RV we havnt used yet, which RV park is PNWMAS taking over?
  15. We shall see I will keep an eye on it that’s a good concern. I’m running the light at around 2w-5w. I doubt it will be an issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Petco is the best pricing I’ve found. Look up the scu on their website and they will price match. Online it’s normally like 50% off
  17. @SuncrestReef for the win! Went to Michaels and found a binder protector. Cut it to size and I’m happy with the $5 result!!
  18. I could bring it to work with me, I work in clackamas. Doubt your want to come all the way out to my house haha
  19. That’s a great idea thanks
  20. Just finished up my LED retrofit into my 6 gallon cube and I’m thinking I need some light diffusion. This is something that I was forecasting beings the light is like an inch off the water surface but I’m not finding much beyond wax paper for DIY diffusion. Are there any products out there that some members have had any luck with? It’s more pronounced in the photo then in person which works to my advantage for y’all to see what I’m trying to correct. Thanks
