  1. I would love this! Where are you located?
  2. Oh heck, I want some of that lol. I wish I had known you were on the hunt, Taylor! I just moved mine into a larger refugium tank. If you're ever around SW or Cuttlefish, I'd be happy to give you some starts if you see some you don't have.
  3. I had a pair, and absolutely fell in love with them. Disease took them out within about a 3 day span, and it's the first time I've cried over a fish dying. They danced in the tank. Mine would eat from my hand. I won my first pair, but am looking at buying the bullet and buying them again. RIP Marco and Marisol.
  4. Most items are currently pending. Most fish are available. I'll update the list next week when the dust settles.
  5. I'll be passing through the Seattle area tomorrow morning, if anyone further North wants to make an offer on rock or livestock.
  6. Do I need to make Ari come back and do a separate one, or was mine enough to count for both of us? Lol
  7. Hello, hello! I'm Jaime, and my husband Ari and I have been running tanks in SW Portland for coming up for 2 years now. We're actually in the middle of consolidating our 50g and 20g into a new 25g IM Lagoon! Feel free to check out my breakdown thread we have learned a ton over the last two years, both about how to do things and what we really enjoy about the hobby. Ari got dragged into the hobby by me. I had kept freshwater tanks before, but always admired saltwater tanks. When we moved into our current home with a lenient lease, I kept into things... I'm pretty sure I had found our first tank before we were done unpacking. Ari got really involved shortly after I got pregnant, as corals triggered my morning sickness something fierce for a while there. Getting his hands in the tank reawakened an interest in marine biology that he had forgotten about I'm not positive when I first heard about PNWMAS ... there is a good chance it was through one of the Facebook groups, and was one of the first reefing events we attended. So far as dream stocking go, I would love to have a pair of longfin phantom clownfish, dog faced puffer, and a pair of seahorses in three very different tanks someday. There is also a place saved in my tank for as dragon soul torch (should I ever happen across one), and I believe some of the higher end elegance and fungia plates for Ari I gotta say, one thing I love about the hobby is all of the chances he and I have had to look at and share things together. Currently, we are gearing our new tank to be mostly softies and mushrooms, with a few pieces of euphyllia, montis, and lepto that I'll be monitoring pretty closely. I've loved my rock flower garden and BTAs, and once the new tank matures, I look forward to possibly adding some back into our collection.
  8. SW Portland, on the edge of Tigard!
  9. Breaking down my 50g SCA and 20g Waterbox as part of our decision to consolidate and downsize a bit. Tanks are in good used condition, with normal wear and tear. Pictures may be viewed at https://photos.app.goo.gl/288NGg7Vwzmqnzmi6 There is one noteworthy scratch on the 50g (pictured). It is a well established tank, with green fuzzy mushrooms and GSP growing on the back, and tons of purple coralline algae. It does have a moderate amount of bubble algae on the rocks, which spent a few months unchecked after my emerald crabs were moved out. On the 20g, there is a small piece missing from plastic above the return (see picture) that does not affect function, and is not generally noticable. Prices as listed, or make offer on full setup (priority to full setup offers). Offers on coral and livestock will be considered. Motivated to sell quickly -- husband is encouraging me to consider take-all offers. Sold 50g SCA cube + stand + sump - $350 Sold Gyre 3k (only a few months old) - $125 Sold AI Prime HD with metal L-mount (x2) - $300 Sold Skimmer (x1.5/extra parts) - $50 Sold20g Waterbox AIO + stand - $150 Current USA Marine IC Pro 18" + 2 eflux pumps + controller - $200 Sold Mismatched clownfish - $20 Sold Bonded yellow watchman goby and pistol shrimp - $30 Sold Melanurus wrasse (injured eye) $20 Sold Lawnmower blenny (handfed) - $10 Sold Tiger pistol shrimp (unpaired) - $10 Sold Tailspot Blenny ([language filter]) - $10 Free to good home with other purchase Sold Regal demoiselle damselfish (x2, one confirmed female) Sold Lemon damsel Sold Blue/yellow-tailed damsel Coral/anemones/inverts Sold Rainbow BTA - $45 Sold Black Widow BTA - $150 Sold Rock Flower Anemones (x3) - $80 on old rock with unknown zoas, red duster worms, and goodness knows what else. Sold More Rock Flower Anemones, plus clam (x2) - these guys have made a home on the rock that my Crocea clam is on. $200 Live Rock - sold **This rock does have some bubble algae on it, so introduce into your tank with caution. I did not add emerald crabs to address it, as I knew I would be reconfiguring tanks in the near future** Rock with God of War zoanthid colony Rock with Firework Cloves, Red Montipora, bleached Green montipora, red/green blastos, regular cloves, and hitchhiker bivalve Rock with Fire and Ice zoanthid colony Rock with green hairy rhodactis mushrooms Rock with green/tinged red discosoma mushrooms Rock with sea whip Rock with unknown zoanthid, partially bleached green pavona, purple/green rhodactis, baby orange/green rhodactis Rock covered in orange Ricordia Yuma mushrooms
  10. I have some upcycled, uncured purple rock. I have no idea what kind it is. Is it something you can use? If so, feel free to shoot me a PM. I'm in SW Portland. Can for scale.
  11. I have a glass 5g plain tank (touch taller than wide, need to check dimensions) and a fluval AIO 5g that I'm not using. I may be down to trade. What area are you in?
  12. I had thought about that, but for heating RODI for water changes! Seems like it should work, but haven't tried lol
  13. Saw this on CL and it cracked me up. Anyone want to take a swing at converting this to SW? https://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/pet/d/port-orchard-fish-frog-snail/6970677573.html
  14. The disposable hand warmers do wonders for keeping things warm on a long drive - You'd essentially pack up your livestock in bags and ideally place them in an insulated container with the warmers, and rock in 5g buckets. You'll likely want new substrate, since stirring it up while getting it out would release excess nutrients. If you're downsizing, you could have saltwater ready to go in your new tank before you move everything (are you making multiple trips, or just one?).... otherwise, it will just take longer to get the water up to the proper temperature once you're there. Seachem Prime could help suppress spikes, and adding some Tim's or Biospira notifying bacteria should help avoid a cycle. Be sure to temp acclimate, if not drip. I'm sure there are some seasoned pros that can add to or correct this lol. Baby woke up, g2g
  15. This week, my black ice longfin girl passed suddenly. Symptoms were pretty vague - lethargy, uninterested in food, rapid breathing, and some damage to her tail. Her mate is in QT now for some general treatment as a precaution. I've never been so sad about losing a fish... Marisol loved being hand fed, and watching her dance through her nems was breathtaking. Everytime I see Marco swimming around, alone, I just get depressed all over again, so I'm looking for a possible friend for my longfin clownfish. Male is fine - they can hash that out. My dream fish would be a longfin phantom, but I'd consider other black and white ocellaris or a longfin of any color (not expecting to find the latter though). I have a lot of livestock and gear to trade, especially for the right fish - zoas, mushrooms, euphyllia, softies, montis, a BTA, 40g SeaClear tank, a 20g sump, etc etc. Shoot me a PM and we can chat. Located in SW Portland.
