  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

  10. 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!

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  18. 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.

  21. 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 😉

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. None of my fish were willing to dress up, but I have a house full of dogs right now and went for a garden theme. 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!

  28. 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

  29. That’s a solid reactor for pennies. Even if it needs a new pump. They are all the same basic thing, so any you find would run from peristaltic pump.

  34. So I went through a long process this year with finding a tank and finally decided on the one I was looking at in the first place before I saw any dropoffs. Received the 112 lagoon 2 weeks ago and they rolled it right into my garage for me which was perfect because I had people scheduled to come help move it in because they say they won’t do that but no need! On the same pallet was my 20 gallon drop off tank and they both arrived in perfect condition. 20 gallon drop off: I had a 25 gallon lagoon set up in my living room area and decided that this tank could replace it for the time be

  36. I gave Katrina a call last week and the best option seemed to be take the tank down and rehome the fish. The location she had a spot to have the tank was right next to their internet connection and was giving them issues. I have the tank cleaned up and ready for next use The 2 clowns are living it up in their new digs The tank could be stored here at my shop or an officer/BOD could get it if they wish

  38. 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

  39. 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

  44. I wouldn't be using phosgaurd without testing for phosphates. Nothing bleaches sps faster than lowering Po4 too fast... And fwiw I never use more than maybe 75% of the recommended dose of phosgaurd/gfo/ect Also since your not testing yet you could have bottomed out your Po4 which will also hurt sps and zoas

  45. My new saw came in the mail today. It's the 42" aquasaw version. If your looking to cut some frags, you can stop by. We can trade use of the saw at my place for a frag cutting or two. I can help out with mounting and such. I live in Multnomah village near Cuttlefish. Send me a PM!👍
