  1. I think maybe a race is in order. We will start at a local fish store each car has to carry four saltwater jugs, full. We will run to an agreed spot. Water jugs spilled ends in disqualification. First one back wins!!! Lol, in Portland it wouldn’t be the fastest car that wins but the person who navigates the traffic best! JK be fun though!
  2. Very nice! I had a 1967 camaro as well, I recently sold. Would like to do a 1967-69 dart. That way I can say I’ve had one muscle car from the big three! Is your 1969 a small block?
  3. I have a 1966 mustang, I’ve had since I was 16. Was my first car. I’ve been working on it for the last 2-3 years, after it sat for quite some time. I converted it from a straight six car to a small block v8. Anyone else play with old cars?
  4. I’ve been wanting a frag of the Tierra Del Fuego. Haven’t seen any available yet! I think the fastest growing acro I have so far is the RMF Superman stag. It’s encrusting the putty really quickly! I’ve been reading that many acros encrust first then start to grow vertically/horizontally?
  5. All my corals seem happy for the most part. I added two hydro 850 gph about two week ago. They’re blowing at each other, full blast ,but shut off at night. I will say the plating montipora I have seem to have taken off in growth. I made several hopefully positive changes recently so I can’t say it’s just that. I’ve heard people say that corals need to be hit with flow from all sides. I have that happening. Some people say that the variable flow is not necessary but the corals will grow in odd configurations. I ordered some dc VFS JEBAO for now. I’m curious if it will improve coral health/growth. Guess we will see
  6. Thanx!!! This hobby is really addicting. Very enjoyable though! Look forward to watching things grow!
  7. Well here’s some pics of my reef. All I can say is that it’s a start. Recently started getting into Acropora after seeing the display tank at premium aquatics. Most of the stuff I have is still frags, but hey you gotta start somewhere!
  8. I’ll have to look into those. Thanx
  9. Hi, had a question for the group. I’ve just recently been bit by the Acropora bug. I’ve been researching their care and keep seeing variable high flow listed as a requirement. I have a 75 gallon 5’ long display tank. On each side I have two 850 GPH powerheads for a total of four for the entire aquarium. During the day all four run full blast. At night, just one from each side run. I have them pointed, so that the streams intersect and create a intersecting randomized flow. Is this sufficient? Are variable speed powerheads really necessary? They’re expensive, so if I can get away without them that’d be nice. Acropora, I currently have seem healthy and are starting to encrust, so I assume it’s good enough. Thanx for the help!
  10. I agree, It’d be a lot easier to just replace the mars aqua light get panel with the sbreef but when I go on sbreefs website they have none in stock. It’s been that way for quite sometime. Something I’m missing? Thanx
  11. Maybe I’ll try moving it to lower par area. See what happens
  12. Hi, I have a frag of bubblegum Digi that I’ve had for about four months. I haven’t seen a lot of growth out of it. Colors aren’t great and neither is polyp extension. It’s in decent flow and about 350 par. Water conditions are: alk 8.5 calc 420 mag 1430 nitrate 0 phosphate 0 Just started dosing recommended doses of AcroPower a few weeks ago. There’s a German blue Digi like 6” away that’s growing like mad. Just wondering what’s wrong?
  13. Thank you for the advice, it goes a long way!
  14. Suncrestreef, So in your experience do corals go through growing spurts? Is this due to the coral being in more favorable conditions? Just curious, still learning
  15. That’s a good problem to have. I’ve been wondering. I have roughly 25 different species of sps and LPS. They’re mostly frags or maybe a little bigger. I don’t use much calcium or other elements on a daily basis. Maybe 2 ml of calcium, alk, and mag. I hear of people with colonies using like 25ml a day calcium. I guess as the colonies get larger I’ll use more? Just surprised my elemental use is so low for how much I have.
