    Angel picking at Acans

    Did you ever find a home for your angel?
  4. I got a Euroquatics Reef Light as a gift and it’s just a complete paper weight. I think you have to be a coder to figure it out. And of course, the model I got is now discontinued and the customer service, it seems, has been laid off. If anyone wants this dang thing to fiddle with, they can have it. I’ll bring it to the swap. It’s and Angel A1

    February Meeting

    I'll be there! Thanks for hosting
  6. Hello everyone! I'll try to make this short and sweet. My name is Niki and I'm the owner of what I think is the world's smallest public aquarium (I've contacted the Guinness Book of World Records people- its a slow process). We're working on an expansion right now. Basically we're converting the basement of a 150-year-old bank into a public aquarium! The space that we're expanding into is about 250 square feet. I have lots of experience with reef tanks (though mostly nano tanks). Its a big project, and the excitement is growing! The tanks that will go in the expansion are: 500 gallon mixed reef with 100 gallon display refugium 160 gallon anemone tank with 75 gallon display refugium 50 gallon low-boy zoanthid garden with 75 gallon display refugium 50 gallon low-boy clam garden with 75 gallon display refugium and of course, the current aquarium- a modest 22 gallon mixed reef with 10 gallon refugium and 30 gallon display qt tank 😅 My first question is: What type of paint/stain/sealer would you use on concrete floor that's going to see lots of salt water and shoes? More info about the aquarium Our mission statement is: The Gosport Aquarium is a future nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire conservation of our world's aquatic treasures, especially ocean reef life. Our public aquarium will showcase a large collection of coral species, captive-bred fish and other sea life to broaden public awareness of reef ecosystems. The goal of the Gosport Aquarium is to teach visitors how and why to limit their dependence on single-use plastics and how littering and pollution affect the reef. Check out our facebook page: www.facebook.com/gosportaquarium Let's see if these videos work: here's a little background on me and the aquarium: https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fgosportaquarium%2Fposts%2F424158054744754& And here's the most recent, made by our local bank, and with my name spelled wrong 😆 https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fowencountystatebank%2Fvideos%2F175904330013277%2F&

    Skimmer really needed?!?!

    In my 22 gallon, I have an algae scrubber, 10 gallon refugium, and a bag of chemipure. Macro algae is my friend. It’s a year old and everything is great. Protein skimmers aren’t necessary.

    Life under weak lights

    Update for anyone who has this question in the future: I have a happy Kenya Tree that has been dropping branches. I figured I’d let a branch float back there to see how it does. It did great! The main tree drops a branch about once a week, which I pick up and put back here under the low lights. Check it out!
  12. My husband and I would love to go! Count us in for 2 adults, and definitely behind the scenes! Thanks so much for organizing this.

    Fine Art and Reef?

    Guys! Gasport is just off highway 67. The signs all say Gosport though, but don’t let that confuse you.

    Fine Art and Reef?

    Hello everyone! Do you like reefkeeping AND fine art?! Me too! In fact, I like them both so much that I've created an entire art show focused on the reef. I've been working on a series of eight watercolors that will be on display throughout the month of May at Grey Dog Gallery in Gosport. Do you facebook? https://www.facebook.com/events/242356269673702 I'm having an opening on Friday, May the fourth (be with you) from 6-8pm. If you live close by or you'll be passing through, please stop in for snacks and reef chat! The address is: Grey Dog Gallery 31 East Main Street Gosport, IN 47433 Here's a sneak peak of the goods:
