  3. Way to go Holly! U work extremely hard on ur tank and its amazing to see so many people appreciating your amazing corals. Holly reminds of why I got into this hobby in the first place. She could obviously sell these corals for way more then $10. Its more about building relationships and talking reefs. I've been very happy to call her my BFF for a while now and u are a shining star in the reefing community! Thanks for being you!

  4. A lot of you are familiar with my $10 sales--every coral is $10 (yes, $10!). You are also familiar with the fact that I haven't been able to put one on since COVID. So, in April and in August I did online 6-pack sales that have been a huge success. It's time for another! This Friday night (November 6) at about 6 pm, I’ll post the packs in a separate thread entitled “SALE THREAD--Friday Night 6-packs.” Here’s how it will work: 1. I’ll post pics of the packs, with numbers. Each pack is $60 (6 corals at $10 per coral...keep up with me here people). 2. You post “sold” and

  9. I got this piece from @Gumbya few months ago and had to share how cool it is! I have it under a lot of blues (radions + T5) and it's developed orange-y polyps with the branches going from pink to dark magenta to bright blue He'll calling it Jimbo Mojo and you should definitely hit him up for a piece!

  10. Hi all Just recently found this forum. Lots of good info here. My wife and I live up north of Seattle in Lynnwood. She is really the hobbyist in the family. After years of wanting to get going in saltwater she finally took the plunge. Now after 3 years we have several tanks set up - this hobby has a way of growing faster than Asterina starfish! We have a 90 gal reef tank with several fish and corals, a smaller 50 gal reef tank with fish and corals and a nano tank that currently is inhabited by a school of baby clowns - most of which are on their way to a local fish store this weeken

  11. Tank is now In The House! Move crew converged on our house and we got it done last night. Joined two furniture dollies together, with foam underneath and it was much easier than getting the tank to the house. Roll out of garage, around side of house, lift onto deck, ramp into house, and then lift, manipulate, rotate onto a plastic base plate covered with a yoga mat. Then lift the base, mat, and tank in one motion and slide it onto the stand. Much easier than trying to precisely set the tank on the mat&stand, in the corner of the room. Glass tanks are heavy.

  15. Dr. Dendrostein on reef2reef has 60 of them in his tank. From what I've read, the most difficult part is providing enough food to keep them from starving. My setup is 150g DT with 40g sump/refugium. I threw one of the 8 into my frag tank and it's doing fine. So Im going to feed heavy and see how it works out. They might be more effective than a skimmer? Certainly cheaper, 13 bucks for a dozen. It's been almost 2 days and they are all still alive.

  17. I actually keep dart frogs as well and the acrylic will still warp unfortunately. I used 3/8" acrylic to build a lid in combination with some 3d printed parts but even the thick stuff still warped due too vivariums having high humidity and warm temperatures. @pdxmonkeyboyis correct in that polycarbonate wont warp from the moisture. The first picture kinda shows the warping and this was just 2 days after I had made it. The second picture is for fun.

  22. And ten days later, The tank is Full, correct salinity, has gravel, and Connected To the Main System. We are back to One Biological Loop! Water, Salt, Gravel, and Flow! Proof of Flow First Salt Multiple days of running RO John's Mixing Station Design sure made it easer to pump RO into tank, and eventually final salt water to top it up.

  25. I believe from their display tank, bought a frag last year. It's more orange and green in person, but still a cool pic to share with fellow reefers... Reminds me with oregon mummy eye but dusted in orange powder. Broke off a baby, never mind that bubble algae 😉

  28. So what is in the activator that we buy for $10? Why does super glue not instantly hardened when sitting still? Jurassic Park isn't real? Why am I forced to drive a car and not roll in style on the back of a triceratops? Ends up... The low ph of the glue keeps it from hardening. I bought a 6 pack of 2oz spray bottles from Amazon for 6.99. took one of the bottles and put kalk water in it. BAM!!!! Diy activator!.!.!.!.! Hope this helps someone.

  29. There are quite a few open source designs, but where is the fun in that? Whipped out a quick design last night, mounted it up. Liking it! I use a second display near my Calcium reactor effluent adjustment knob, for quick feedback on adjustments. Waiting for fusion is just too slow and even the local web UI.

Lacy as a bee, my new dog Lila as a butterfly, and my foster dog Lulu as a flower to complement my garden gnome getup. I guess we’re scary if you’re allergic to bee stings or pollen!

  32. I think you would have to have a hole in your head to spend what they are asking for them new. A light, some plumbing, and a plastic sheet..$500? B@#%$ please. Oh wait, I take it back, this totally looks like it is worth $1000. https://www.santa-monica.cc/SURF8-or-SURF8x--built-to-order-floating-surface-2-compartment-upflow-scrubber-with-Green-Grabber-surfaces--8-cubes-feeding-per-day_p_64.html

  33. Looks like I have at least 40 babies, though I can only see the ones with fluorescent oral discs. Mom's is grey, so unless that's recessive I think I probably have 10-20 more. The pic is of the biggest one so far.

  35. The most common cause of salinity probe problems is air bubbles trapped inside the tube. I've had great success with my salinity probe by mounting it upside down so air bubbles just float up and out of the tube without being trapped. I also calibrate the probe upside down by placing the calibration solution and probe tip inside a probe storage bottle, then inverting it: https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/brs-ph-orp-probe-tip-soaker-bottle.html When using the John Guest fittings, did you cut off the tip of the DOS fitting conical section? If not, it obstructs the push-connect f

  40. We recently moved from the east coast. My kids are older now and I’m going to build a new low cost system using mostly stuff I have. I’ve been out of the hobby for 10 years now. Any help with local stores and supplies would be awesome. I had a 400 gallon system with a 125 display 100g refugium 4’ 120 display and 100g or so sump all plumbed together. I’m looking to do a much smaller operation that’s not so demanding. I’m looking forward to the club and meeting some like minded people. I was part of Boston reefers back home. My kids started racing BMX and my tank crashed while in Kentucky so I g

  41. That answer is yes but I think the original manufacture date was around 2009 or so. The older wet sides had rebuild kits but those are no longer available and entire wet side assemblies must be purchased ($78.00). I don't know what the lifespan of these new wet sides are. I replaced my original drivers with EcoSmart drivers years ago and they are both still working. I had one motor seize up after I dropped it in the tank (bought a used replacement from a member here and it is also at least 10 years old). I have also had to replace one power supply that went bad. I will probably upgrade to

  45. I have three beautiful BTAs available. They are natural splits from two of my prized BTAs. They are each over 5" and I've had them for well over a year. --Green base, orange/red tentacles with bright pink tips (2 available) --Speckled green with purple tips (1 available) I had a really hard time getting pictures that do them justice. The pic of the green/red/pink ones is pretty accurate, but the green/purple is much prettier than the pictures. I've attached a pic of its brother (sister?) so you can see the speckling, but the green color is still off. I'm in southwest
