  1. Yesterday
  2. lower right in 2017.. Boy Ryan aged from 2016 to 2017
  3. Last week
  4. Becoming a member is a good call, coming to a meeting is even better as you can talk with a number of people with experience in the hobby. (Also, seeing the various systems in the group and learning from our successes or mistakes.)
  5. Thanks Ryan! Mike Miller reached out yesterday and is helping with and recruiting some club members.
  6. Susan, if you can wait a couple weeks (I’ll be out of town starting this Saturday for 10 days) I can def lend a hand. We can see if we can get a few others from the club to help as well.
  7. This was from a club meeting in 2016 at Tryfin's (bill's house) I believe it was one of the retro frag swaps
  8. Susan We can probably get a couple of people together to help set it up if you have any pictures of what you bought or a list and lets see what we can do most of us will work for beer Mike 317 730 7049
  9. Nice! Following along to watch the progression.
  10. So the next step was aquascaping. Before even deciding on equipment, I take the time to create my scape. Originally I was looking at using the Marco rock like in my previous tank. I am very glad I did not. I went with the new Tropic Eden Morroca dry rock. It has made a massive difference in the early time of the tank. Normally I would be fine with the year of tan dry rock, but you no longer need to. So I got 15 pounds of the rock and went to work trying various layouts. Don’t be scared if the price per pound, if this is a tank you are staring from scratch, this stuff light, easy to stack, has tons of caves for fish, and gorgeous in person. My brand new tank looks like it’s been up for years just because of this rock. I finally landed on a layout and grabbed a bag of dry CaribSea Special grade. You will notice a theme “Dry” everything for the tank. I was trying a new cycling technique which I will cover in the next post
  11. Looking good man! I had the same tank a while back and really liked it. The IM mighty jet was awesome and swapped to their Brandon soon streams for variable flow and then put a power head in the middle of those returns since there is a dead spot. You should enjoy it!!
  12. Well I would normally start a build thread before my tank is fully up and running, but in anticipation of the Frag Swap, I may have hit the fast forward button to get ahead. I will still try to cover most of what I have done, my process what has worked and not worked, and everything in between. To start out with let’s talk tank. I was not planning on doing a tank for a long time, but the dark Indiana winters+ being WFH again for who knows how long, made me realize how much a tank can help someone. From the sound of water, to the sun replicating lights, a tank can really be a piece of therapy, and adds some much needed brightness to a winter home. I was looking at doing a Red Sea reefer XL200, but could not find all the plumbing in stock(stock valve is problematic), and with supply chain issues, I decided to build a tank based on what was available, that still fit my needs. I wanted a smaller tank(space limited) that I could do LPS and SPS in, with a few nice fish. I went by Modern Aquatix just to take a look and see if my youngest (4) had any interest in reef aquariums, and low and behold he had a 25g Innovative Marine Lagoon tank and APS stand in stock. I was torn thinking this tank might be too small, but based on the actual footprint, it had the same room coral wise, and was much cheaper overall allowing me to spend on the rest of the equipment. So here is my new tank.
  13. I'm in Oaklandon. It's a sump set up and I believe I have everything. I will be moving the tank into the house this weekend.
  14. Hi Susan, what side of town are you on? Do you have all the equipment, or do you still need to get some things?
  15. I have a 155 bow front that I need help setting up. I bought it used and I'm new to the hobby and I don't know enough to do it myself. I am willing to pay for the help and guidance. Please text me 317-748-6267. Thanks, Susan
  16. You can do it from your iPhone super easy. 1.Add File 2.Choose from Photo Library 3. Pick your Photo 4. At the bottom it will say show selected. Click that. 5. Bottom right corner Actual Size. Click that. Pick a Size. 6. Then Add Done
  17. I have to email my phone pictures to myself then use my laptop to resize them. I use Paint that came with my computer to reduce the pixels to 600 x 800 then upload them. There may be editing software for your phone to do this but I don’t have one on my phone or know what app that would be. It is a hassle but it works.
  18. Light came in very quickly, I was surprised how quick I got it. It is already installed. I didn’t get before pick but I can post some after. I have a 14 k bulb now but thinking of putting in a 20k bulb. I will get some pictures later when light comes on.
  19. I’m glad to hear that the local reef club is still reasonable! Can’t wait to see everyone again at the swap.
  20. Earlier
  21. My most expensive frag will be $50. Most around $20 fyi
  22. Cheryl and I would each like 1/2 table each.
  23. Have the lights come in? I’m excited to see the transformation, hopefully you can do a before and after.
  24. So the early bird gets the nicest pick, but the last bird gets the discounts lol
  25. Depending on what you want, frags can still be $10- 20 a piece. Stick around to the end and deals can be had.
