  1. Awesome meeting! I was glad to be back among like-minded individuals. I will definitely make better attempts to attend! Thanks, Amanda, for opening your beautiful house to all of the members.
  2. Need aquascaping advice/fish advice

    I always find that pajama and bangaii cardinals as well as green chromis utilize the top third of the tank. I have had good luck with them. I agree with Amanda. I arch my rock. It still doesn't reach the high point, but I kind of like having the top portion available for the top swimmers.
  3. I will be there! Oh, and I just renewed my dues, so I'm legit! :-)
  4. I am available to do second shift and tear down.

    I can do setup. The early shift if you still have spots for volunteers.
  7. February 2015 Meet

    I will be there.
  8. Okay, members. Time for that age-old debate. I am curious about what kind of salt mix you use. I used Tropic Marin years ago and liked it. Then I changed to Seachem for cost effectiveness after Tropic Marin elevated their prices. About 3 years ago, I changed to Red Sea Coral Pro salt, thinking that it would yield great results. I have had good luck with it. However, I am upgrading to a larger aquarium and want to be more cost-effective. I was thinking about changing back to Seachem since it's cheaper. So, my question is: what salt mix have you used? What do you find works best?
  9. I am setting up my 120. I am going to place a 3/4 inch board and styrofoam under the tank bottom. Trouble is, I am not sure which should go under which. I was going to do the board, then the styrofoam, then the tank. But the tank is constructed so that the sides are siliconed to the sides of the bottom glass, not where the sides rest on top of the bottom glass. Will that place unnecessary stress on the bottom if it is sitting on styrofoam, seeing as it is a little more forgiving than wood? Any experience and advice would be much appreciated.
  10. Suction Cups

    Friend of Scott from Orphek. It's a pretty sweet tank. I will post pics when I get it all set up.
  11. Suction Cups

    I am getting a new 120 peninsula tank Wed. I need a set of suction cups to help move it. Does anyone know who has them or does anyone have a set I could borrow? I sent Dustin a PM but he hasn't been online and I don't have his cell number.I believe he usually has the rental items.
