    New guy here

    Welcome to the club! I am in Fishers so just around the corner.
  2. I will not be able to attend as we will be moving our son back to Purdue this Saturday.
  3. Fantastic idea!!! Especially considering the price increases this past year.
  4. I have the 2nd generation Gyre's and have had good results. Not as finicky with cleaning but certainly still have to clean them for optimum efficiency.

    Where'd you move to? 😂
  6. It's worth the drive. You will know exactly what your getting and you can ask how the fish has been doing since arrival. Is it eating? Does it look stressed? Etc. Ryan makes a great point in that you can work with your local vendors since they do have the ability to order specific fish for you.
  7. Yes, I have been using it. I have to say, I am pretty impressed. The cyano is gone for the most part. Still not using a skimmer, using Chaeto and Dr. Tim's. The only issue I am running into is that the good bacteria is competing with the Chaeto and it is actually dying off. I am cutting back on the Dr. Tim's to give the Chaeto more nutrients to grow.
  8. Thanks Ben! I was trying to get this posted but couldn't.
  9. Craig and Connie, thanks for hosting! Had a great time! Beautiful home and tank! Fantastic food!
  10. Update: Marcia and I will be there. We are bringing mexicorn dip.
  11. Hollyhock Hills fried chicken, I am so there!!!! Lol. Maybe I'll bring biscuits!
  12. I will be there. Not sure on food yet, depends on time.
  13. Same here, not working on my MacBook or my company laptop running windows. I have tried Safari, IE, and Google Chrome.
  14. switched to google chrome...same result. Cannot get the notifications to come up. I will try from my company laptop in a bit.
  15. I am using my MacBook with safari.
  16. I am having the same issue. I cannot click on the notification icon and see what is going on.
  17. I renew because Mike makes me... Just kidding! I renew because I enjoy being part of the club due to the friends I have made and the tremendous resource of knowledge. Of course the monthly meetings are bad either! 🍻
  18. I have had those before and they did not seem to hurt anything (well, I don't "think" they did anything). Here is an article from reef keeping magazine on the subject: http://reefkeeping.com/joomla/index.php/current-issue/article/45-reefkeeping-101-
  19. Wow! Man, scary enough drilling an empty tank...

    New to Indy

    Welcome to Indy and INDMAS!!
  21. I am going to try Dr. Tim's. I added Waste Away (which had a negative impact on my Chaeto) already and will know try to get the good bacteria up by adding Dr. Tim's Nitrifying Bacteria. It is supposed to help with new tank syndrome. After that I will add Dr. Tim's Eco-Balance which is supposed to add "friendly, supportive bacteria to maintain a balanced environment with specific probiotics against vibrios and blocks out unfriendly bacteria"... We'll see... Apparently you are not supposed to use two of these treatments at the same time so this will take a few weeks. I have not been running my skimmer in hopes that I don't get rid of the good bacteria and trying to use the Chaeto to replace the skimmer. When I set up my 125 when I first got into this, it took a good year for the tank to settle in and for Cyano to stop showing up in my tank. The good thing is that while cyano is a nuisance and not pretty to look at, it can be vacuumed out fairly easily (it is a hassle and time consuming though).
  22. I'm glad he was able too offer some advice. Unfortunately, I am still learning as well so I can't offer any substantial advice. Luckily, we have some very knowledgeable people in the club. Hopefully, whatever was causing the issues will work its way out of your system. Tanknovice had to do the same a couple of months back.
