  4. So guessing this means you’re actually new the the hobby all together?. Well there will be lots and lots and lots of coral available to purchase. You’ll have a hobbiest section. Pretty much guys in the club growing stuff in their tanks looking to make some cash to put right back into the their tanks. 🙋🏽‍♂️ Like me! Then you have vendors. They’re the tables that have turned all this into a business. Places like Aquarium World, Modern Aquatix, The Reef, Premium Aquatics, Salt Critters, and some out of town place that do some traveling. This year the building is a large one with a

  5. Thanks to ReefNewby82, TankNovice and Mike762 for arranging and setting up a Zoom call to help me experience the meeting today. For those of you that don't know I have a rare muscle disease called Inclusion Body Myositis. For the sake of an easy explanation I have heard it described as like ALS but very slowly progressing. At this point I rely on a power wheelchair to get around (it weighs about 500lbs without me in it) and it is starting to limit the use of my hands. It currently affects my left hand more than my right. Because of this you may not see me at very many meetings however I will b

  6. Dry rock and live rock both have advantages and disadvantages. There are a couple companies that put dry (mined on land) rock in the ocean and let it sit for a year or two then harvest it as live rock. This is legal to do. Just can no longer take rock off a reef anymore. And you can take some steps to process this rock to get rid of some of the bad hitchhikers that won't kill the good bacteria on the live rock (the reason for buying live rock). You can also do things to the dry rock to help get rid of the nitrates and phosphates bound up in it. This does take longer to do though. I think KP Aq

  7. In addition to Mike's comments, we will have a TV monitor with a power point running that will be updated with the winner and ticket#. So if you miss a drawing, you will be able to check the monitor to see if you won anything.

  15. I use to be a member of the bird club years ago. I am not a fan of Bird Fever. We got our grey from a breeder in Danville, IN. I think she has retired now. 20 some years ago I use to raise some birds also. I raised several finches, canaries, parakeets, hand feed cockatiels and Indian Ring Necks.

  18. My little one would have it no other way. She grew up watching Octonauts and between that and my love of the ocean she was stuck. 🤣 We have decide to go with the Red Sea Max e-170. Starting out without the sump refuge option, but hopefully adding later. My daughter is a real rule follower and always looking to make peace out of any situation and I think I am going to carry that theme into the tank with a couple of examples of symbiotic relationships and just an overall peaceful tank. Which means I will probably also stay away from corals that have a tendency to take over the tank. We'll see, s
