    Here is my first hammer pinwheel after 48 hours or so. I used the orange baby wall hammer elevated in the center. 24k up front, splatter hammer back left and the gold tip top right. I didn't want to over crowd the wheel...so I will be doing a second wheel as well. This one will have the purple tip, the baby blue and the purple hammer. When I get the peach octospawn I will do one of those as well. So in the end when this baby step (get it) build is done and ready we will have three euphyllia centerpieces for the new system!

    I have been collecting hammers to make a centerpiece for the new build when and if it's finally wet lol. Right now I have gold, orange, baby blue, splatter hammer and purple. It should be really cool when I get it fragged and set up.

    I sold my 125 today. I feel like it was an end of an era. This tank was running continuously for over 20 years. And was an accumulation of a 75 and 55 reef that started in 1993. Most of you in the club has seen my tank over the years. And maybe was the oldest continuously ran reef tank in the club. So with that said I will be doing a future build.

    Hey all I’m Jimmy, I’m new to the saltwater hobby and am really looking forward to getting to know everyone. Right now I’m in the soaking up knowledge and planning what I want my tank to look like stage. I am a big Pacers fan and my family has had season tickets for over 30 years. I’m also a bit of a cigar collector with likely close to 2000 cigars. I’ll likely be selling off a small portion to help kickstart this new hobby!

    I currently have a 75 up and running. Planning on setting up a 120. Keep my lights and skimmer from the 125 and a lot of rock. Dont know how soon it will be for the next build .

    Made the same mistake! Just my experience not to discourage you, but it took a good month to 2month before chaeto grew again after stop dosing vibrant. The one that was in my Refugium completely melted a month later I added a new ball, with no success either. Only now I see robust macro algae growth. Also if you chaeto is melting it will release all of the nutrients back into the water column. Why did it take that long? Vibrant is mostly a bacterial product, these bacteria will settle and grow on substrate and as such doing water changes will not get rid of them. So they have to run it’s course. My suggestion would be to pull your chaeto and wait a few weeks or a month before reintroducing any macro algae, but it just my two cents.

Check them out and consider getting a bracelet for a loved one this year...you can be helping the environment more than you know! I think the club reached out to them in the past to try and work out a group buy and they weren't interested. But doesn't mean we can all spend $20 to help the fish and corals we all live with and love.

    Got the plumbing done! Looks pretty sharp...it's a little tighter than I wanted it to be for the equipment but I'm digging it! What do you think?

    Hello! My name is Austin Cutliff. I’m 24 years old and live in Terre Haute, In. I started in the hobby when I was 19. I have came a long way since then. My first tank was a standard 40 gallon breeder with no sump and all soft corals. I had it for roughly 3 years before upgraded to a 75 gallon reef. Unfortunately I only got to keep that tank for about a year and a half as I was forced to move and downsize again. Now I have a 45 gallon lagoon which I love with some high end equipment to help me out. I will attach some pictures for your enjoyment thanks for allowing me to be apart of this community!

    Thought I share a recent full tank shoot here. Making progress to fill the tank..... Over the recent months I battled Dino’s, GHA, and a mild cyano break out, but feel I’m on the right track. Any tips for taking good FTS, beside getting rid of the reflections....

    When Mike was showing off his epic 600 gallon beast last night he mentioned I should join this forum and come to this meeting. I'm planning to attend if I can!

    I'm taking baby steps 🤣 I think I am going a different route for the light being hung or mounted. I ended up going with the Reefbreeder 42 photon LED v2. I have had a lot of luck with these lights and Logan has always been helpful over the 7 years I've used them. I think we are going to do the industrial piping to hang the LED. We are also considering having a custom patchwork welded LED casing made to mount the LED inside. I have a sketch drawn up and a welder reefer that I know that should be able to make it no issues. It will have vents up top and hopefully a way to lower and raise the assembly if needed.

    I have killed my chaeto many times over the years in my attempts to take care of tank issues. It happens...you can always buy fresh chaeto if you want super clean or ask someone from the club if they are getting rid of any.

    +whatever on the smart ATO. Had it on a 55 gallon aquarium and it did great. Its quite too.

    +2 on the Smart ATO. Use it on my Nuvo 20. I always forget to check my reservoir so I like the out of water warning. I have an anemone who likes to block my overflows so the water level in the back of tank sump drops, the ATO tops it off, the anemone moves and my ATO starts beeping that the sump is over filled. Really irritating but not the ATO's fault. Have it plugged into my Apex so I can shut it off with out getting out of my seat! LOL

    +1 on the smart ato. I had one on each of my tanks and love them

    I have the Smart ATO...great little system. Small sensor and pump...reliable. has an audible and visual alarm too...so it beeps when it's out of water in the reservoir as well as when it back siphons (you need to add an inline siphon check valve). It's pretty well priced too...easy to set up
