  1. Yesterday
  2. And yes, I moved the left monitor over after I put it up so that is spackle you see behind it.
  3. It's been almost a month and the room's mostly the same but I did add some techy stuff today. First, the bad news. It looks like my perc died some time overnight last night. I haven't seen him all day and even moved the rocks around during feeding. The snowflake has been chasing him around a lot but I thought they were just establishing dominance. Maybe she took it too far. The strange thing is that I can't find a body and there are no scavengers in the tank. Just the snowflake and 2 turbos. Both fish seemed in great health last night and ate very well. Anyway, on to the room. It's currently being used to store the kids' board games with the tree up, but I added a new laptop and 2 monitors. One is for the Apex Fusion page and the other is for other things like videos. I was originally going to download a bunch of beautiful coral macro pictures to play as my wallpaper in slideshow mode, but then I got a different idea. I went into Photobucket and downloaded almost every tank pic that I've uploaded for over a decade. I put in everything including decisions I wish I had back. It's a fun way to remember the journey since I started in the hobby. The desk is still less than halfway done, the upper section has been modeled in Sketchup and I need to build it. Eventually it will house the laptop up high, more storage, and a coral band saw that will slide out on a tray like the ones on the bottom. The top area all the way across will be open and show things that I want to display.

    New skimmer??

    Does anyone here have personal experience with the Vertex Alpha 200 protein skimmer? I’ve been looking at it for an upcoming project and was hoping to get some feedback from someone that’s used one (or any of that line, really). Wondering how touchy they are when adjusting and dialing in, and how difficult disassembly and cleaning is.

    Hobby Tables for 2019 Swap

    Payment sent! Exciting!!!
  14. The tank was running with fresh water in it this weekend. I had to replace a seal on the reeflo hammerhead and there is still a small leak, i hope to fix it soon. I got a new GFCI circuit on a switch for the powerheads. I had to use a GFCI because there are plug in on the wall surrounding the tank. I aint takin no risks!!! I installed the cabinets in the fish room to create a nice working area and storage. I hope to someday paint them gray like the color on the stands. We move into the new house this weekend. So i hope to have alot more time after the kids go to bed to work on the tank. Things I still need to do: Put a plywood skin around the back side of the tank and paint it gray. Put another coat of black epoxy on top of wall. Build water changing station in corner between sink and refugium with the 4 55g barrels that are holding rock and sand. Make a walkway around the tank that folds down when not in use. This should be high enough that i can reach most of the tank when walking on it. Build light racks for main tank and frag tank. (recommendations for blue actinics to go with my MHs?) Build rock wall

    Looks like another awesome swap!!! Cant wait!!
  16. At this time, current INDMAS Members may reserve a table at the March 16, 2019 frag swap by sending an email to [email protected] and posting in this topic. The post will timestamp the request and the email will be about payment. Payment will confirm the table. Ben will confirm table availability and work out payment from from there. This year, the hobby tables will line the back wall like last year and will be numbered H1 to H18. There are 9, 8-foot tables total so each spot is 4 foot (still good at math) The spots will be $25 each for members and $50 for non-members (preference given to those that bought a calendar JUST KIDDING that will be next year). We will have 14 spots for the club hobbyist and 4 external. This post is just for Club members at this time. We will confirm table reservation as soon as possible but look for a confirmation this weekend.

  19. Hello All INDMAS Members! With the frag swap secured for March 16th, 2019 and the INDMAS Staff and members working diligently on getting the flyers ready, and budgeting for yet another stellar swap...its time to get our t-shirts designed for the new 2019 year!! We always have some cool t-shirts designed in the past and are wanting to get YOU to get creative once again! If you are creative, or artistically inclined...or just have a cool picture you want on a t-shirt, why not get it designed and have our club members vote on their favorite for 2019!? The details: > Create them on Customink.com > Please select single color print. > Standardized INDMAS logo on the front (either white or black logo) http://indmas.org/main/index.php/topic/14942-2016-indmas-t-shirt-design-contest/ > We prefer you to select one of the HANES Beefy T's > Add your custom design on the back of the shirt!

In the pop up window, enter your username as the name, and [email protected] as the email recipient. ***Submissions must be entered no later than 12/31/18, at 11:59pm Then, a two week voting period will take place once they are all uploaded to this thread. We will be taking t-shirt orders on a new thread afterwards, and we only order the amount that the members speak up for as to not have unaccounted shirts left over again. THE WINNER OF THE CONTEST WILL AS ALWAYS RECEIVE A FREE CUSTOM T-SHIRT!!! It would be great to have a lot of members participate in this event and to be able to show off the shirts at the frag swap to all the new members we will have and to all the fellow reefers from around the surrounding states coming to the frag swap!
