  1. Will be there. Anyone want any Xenia or Kenya? Will trade for anything - beer, hugs, high fives.. You name it

  3. Got the pork butt brining, going to do pork belly burnt ends too. Will have buns/bread for pulled pork, and also have black bean burgers for the veg only folks. Think ill prolly do some scotch eggs as i've had a few requests Might smoke some cheeze-itz too...tried them the other day and they are SO good! We have 2 large tents out back so if it does rain, there is plenty of dry space inside and out.
  4. Ah, so its only in messages - forums it works fine? Is this on an iphone?
  5. Would love to add another tank to my setup that would go above my current sump. The wall behind it is concrete/cinder block and wondered if I could drill it and put rebar in then have the tank on top of that? Not sure how to determine how much weight concrete and rebar could hold? There just isnt much room at all to be able to build a wooden stand, so wondered about this as an option.
  6. They MIGHT...but IME I didn't have much luck. From what I remember it's best to go by the MM (millimeter). Fact check me but I think you need a 45mm for standard 1" plumbing but its 3mm larger for sch80 plumbing...
  7. Definitely something to discuss tomorrow too is finding the RIGHT sized bit! It's not as easy as buying a 1 1/2 drill bit for a 1 1/2" PVC! I know i have a good diamond bit that's used for doing a 1.5" hole - if interested in that. We did a drilling demo last year at the meeting at my house and RyanSweet did the demo without cutting off Brandon's finger.
  8. I think i'll be there, gameday decision for the others.

This thread is to see who is interested, arrange carpooling, and plan for the day. Muncie doesn't have much...but they do have the best hibachi/sushi restaurant i've been to - and there is also a guy that sells corals etc so could possibly see if he wants a group to come in.

  11. If it's aiptasia you are wanting to get rid of berghia nudi is by far the best method
  12. Hey I think it would be cool if everyone took pics of their frags NOW, and then maybe every 2 weeks or every month and see the different growth we all get. Would be a neat experiment since they all came from the same frag. Brandon - what were the tank parameters on what the coral is used to? What kind of lights is it used to? What kind of flow and where in the tank were they at? Anyone interested?
