  1. Amber and I are planning to attend. Is there anything else you can think of that you may need to get another tank or two up and running?
  2. BIG shout out to Mike for getting this put together and making it a success! I'd also like to thank the sponsors for their patience (stupid traffic set us behind) and the awesome deals they extended to our club members for the trip. Premium and Modern had some amazing livestock. I hadn't been to the Reef in quite some time (live on the south side) but was really impressed with their salt area revamp. They had some really nice stock, and the layout is user friendly. This was a great way to get to know some of the members that don't come to every meeting, and would definitely be interested in doing it again.
  3. Anyone want any specialty beers to start the day with? You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning...
  4. I’ve been looking into this as well. Do you know if it runs the same on every version (newer pi’s mostly) pi that is available?
  5. If my opinion matters, go with hardwood. I haven’t had any issues so far (no big spills or leaks yet, so I guess it hasn’t been properly tested), and hard wood is easier to clean. And it looks super nice. I understand the tank build being on hold, I have a 120 that’s waiting to be finished. But mine is because I’ve been lazy...
  6. Cochran exterior. My brother is a superintendent for them. Let me know if you’d like me to get you guys in touch.
  7. I’m a tunze fan also. Like the jebao as a cheaper option as well.
  8. Just my opinion, but unless you’re completely out of room in the 40 I’d wait. I’ve moved tanks and the smaller, the better.
  9. How did I just now see this?? Lol I’ve been a part of indmas for almost 15yrs now. In the beginning I wanted to learn more about the hobby (and I did), make a few friends who understood the dedication, passion, and slight craziness you have to have to have a tank long term. Now I feel like I have knowledge to offer the newbies, but still get to learn something new at almost every meeting. It’s an ever changing hobby and clubs like indmas are what makes it just a touch easier to keep on track.
  10. I agree with Mike. Make a list of what you’re looking for, call one of the local shops and ask them what they can get, and for how much. If no one can get you what you’re looking for, then try online vendors. But I’m almost positive that one of the locals can get just about anything you want.
  11. Yep. I’ve had salt in my life for over 20yrs. I took a break when I moved back to Indiana after spending 4yrs in Florida. Then a couple years after that, I broke down my tank and was tankless for about 8mos (had a Red Sea 34gal that I accidentally crushed my starry blenny while moving rocks to clean and it crashed my tank). After breaking that tank down I swore I’d never have another because it had become “work” to me, and I had other things going on. But then I went to a friends house who had a tank and that was it. It’s been 7yrs since my 75gal has been up and I’m in the process of upgrading to a 120gal. Sometimes it’s good to take a break now and then, but I think (for me anyway) there will never be a long time that I don’t have something up and running.
  12. Def interested but I’m out of town until June 17. If he goes before then I guess I’ll miss out. If not, I’ll get a hold of you when I’m back in town.
  13. Working on this as well as a few other website issues
  14. Def will not be at this one. Amber and I are leaving for Hawaii to celebrate our 2yr anniversary that morning. If we get a big response I can help to get some adult beverages into the hands of someone who is going, just let me know. Craig, hope you have a nice, big turnout for it. Let me know if I can help with anything beforehand.
  15. After my many years in this hobby I am finally getting a piece of equipment that I’ve never had. A calcium reactor. I know the basics of how they work and I’ve seen the media the stores sell. What I’m wondering is if I could use old coral skeletons that have died and I’ve (for some strange reason) kept around in a box. Isn’t that what the media actually is?
  16. This should be fixed now. Restart your browsers and it should work. I think...
  17. Amanda, are you using Chrome, Fire Fox, Internet Explorer, Safari?
  18. What browser is everyone using? Mobile or computer?
  19. I really like the keyhole angel. It’s bland to a lot of people but really like the black longnose tang too
  20. You’ll want to siphon as much out as you can, and then use chemiclean. Cyano (in my opinion) is the best problem to have in this hobby, as it’s the easiest to rid of as long as you act fast and use the right treatments.
  21. I like it. It's a nice contrast to the other colors. I'm guessing it won't take long for it to start popping some new heads in your tank. Euphillia seem to like it in there.
