    I want to say thank you to everyone for coming out the swap this past weekend. I also want to thank all of the hobbyist and vendors. We had a great attendance for the new venue. And a big thank you to all the volunteers and staff who helped to pull this together on setup, during the event, and tear down. We have lots of new members and lots of renewals. We hope that everyone will continue to stick around and I really hope to get the forums going again.

    Meet The Count He hovers in this area of the tank and has a den right behind him. Some say you never make it out if his den alive. Others say nothing at all...what say you?

    Hello everyone! I’m looking for suggestions. about 1/3 of my display is under LED’s that I chose specifically for my little mangrove shoots. I figured I could grow some cool macro algae on this side of the tank and leave the other 2/3 for coral. Then I got thinking, I wonder if anyone has had any luck with coral under weak light? The front has strong flow, the back has low flow. (Don’t mind the hideous power head, my mp10 broke and I’m awaiting replacement) Maybe some mushrooms? Thanks in advance!

    With the great turn out we had at the frag swap, we gained a lot of new members and had a lot of renewals. Setting up the new members and taking care of the renewals are going to take a little bit of time to get everything updated. Please be patient with me as I am trying to get these done as quickly as I can. It may be a week or so before everything is done. Thank you, Kyle

    Another great swap, as always! Thanks, INDMAS! I got some great new corals, although I would not call some of them bargins. LOL

    I'm Jeremy, I'm new to indmas. I been reeling for a few years. I got my first tank in 1990 The cool under gravel filter style with bubble pipes that made salt creep look like a mountain of salt. Back in 2000 started a aquaculture facility out in Brazil Indiana. 2006 sold out and moved on with life. Now I'm in southern Indiana and slowly, very slowly building 400+ basement sump reef. So I need help and hope I can add some as wel go. Any who Hello reefers...

    Picked up too many frags between the INDMAS swap and a swap over the weekend in St Louis. Decided to finally make use of this low boy tank I have had in storage. Think it turned out well especially for a behind the scenes frag tank, nothing fancy.

    The house got a roof last week and windows were delivered today. Hopefully I can install them soon (damn snow!!!!). We are having another child next week and I’m hoping to have all the electrical/plumbing finished this weekend. Then on to HVAC and then I can work on the tank. I bought used 6 metal halide reflectors and 2 ballasts a few weeks back( 4 for the tank and 2 for frag tank). I need to buy 4 more ballasts soon. I also got a nice acrylic frag tank that measures 6’x2’x12” im going to make a big purchase soon of some tunze power heads and a bubble magus b12 skimmer. I’ll post lots of pictures when I start the tank in about 2 weeks
