    We are excited to host. My mom is making it covid safe. We will be setup for the swap and food on the patio. All the food is individually wrapped and drinks in coolers outside. We will have beer, pop and water. The food is subs, chips and cookies. My tank is doing so so right now so I'd always love suggestions. My mom said masks on in the house. We have a lot of tables and chairs for outside. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    Hi All, Just thought I share my Retro Frag Swap Haul form last weekend (all the coral’s on the frag rack - minus the dragon soul Favia). Puffdragon couldn’t make it but was nice enough to meet up with me on Monday in Indy to make up for the frag swap miss. Thanks again to all attendees and Eric for hosting....

    Finally had a little time and got a new image completed... This is NGC 7129 This is a little over 11 hours and does need more but I am pretty happy with results. Such a soft and subtle target. hope you love it!

    Sure here is mine. Bought a kitchen cabinet, put wheels under it, took the back off and put a board inside and mounted controllers on front and cords on back side. Put a magnet on back so I can remove if needed.

    The September meeting will be on Saturday September 12th and is the annual retro frag swap. The retro frag swap is no tanks/no lights/no heaters old school- just frags in coolers to buy sell and trade. I have posted this on reeftrader (https://www.reeftrader.com/ ) as well. With COVID there are a couple of changes to this one.... Members only and everyone must have a mask (No exceptions) Our host is Eric (ericreefer05) The club greatly appreciates Eric and his family hosting. The address is 11541 Buckskin Drive Zionsville IN 46077 Time is 4pm to 6pm We do request RSVP in this thread so we have a handle on the number of attendees. I will be there, Mike

    I used Dr. Tim's cycle process with new unseeded rock. The sand was "live" sand. I used Dr. Tim's One and Only, MicroBacter7, and Prodibio Digest as the bacteria additives. It still took a solid 3-4 weeks to get through all the peaks and valleys of ammonia, nitrates and nitrites. I can not tell you anything about the tanks that are setup in a day. All I can tell you is take the cycle stage slow and steady as that is the most important part to a solid tank. Test daily for ammonia and nitrites until you have that under control and then start on the perimeters. I documented my cycle on reef2reef.com Here is the link: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/cycling-levels.544637/ and also https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/cycling-new-tank.537812/

    My Daddy and me.... We are making the board after the awesome model on youtube that has gray interior and orange bottom and black extrerior with a few modifications. I have a 30 wide by 16 deep by 37 inch tall cabinet we are making and insetting the back by 8 inches ( Basically~ making an "I" shape to allow for me to mount my cabling on the back side ( still away from the sump etc. it will snuggle right under the lip of my stand facing outward to cover the ugly side of the stand. I will be mounting 2 alarm lights on the side though that will be programmed. ~yellow non audible for warnings like low ato ~low alk ~ low ph ~ low temp etc, and red audible for OMG the tank is falling apart. LOL.. i have a Break out box I got on etsy that has feed mode button maintenance mode and a third I will program for lighting for photography. etc. and a KILL switch for anything drastic that I will program to kill every single thing. (incase of fire etc.). Im super excited. I got the lunar module. ( love that moon). and the WXM module for my pumps. Ordering the pm2 to allow for another breakoutbox for the floats and door switches etc. I hope this works as good as it can be. so far so good. dad drilled on set of holes an 1/8 of an inch lower than the other. I tol him. "no biggie. it adds character". who like that perfectly level crap anyways. LOL. its coming along great though!!!!

    I use a mono camera with filters to capture the specific colors. I shoot with limited moon for this type of an image. I LVOE dark sites are we go once a year atleast. and it is HUGE difference. like 1/8 the time needed for same quality///. for moon nights i shoot narrowband. the reds. or the bright orange/ blue etc colors you see. that is a bandlength of 3-5 nm only its a really cool hobby

    Not sure but,I think you may have reached your size limit. The size limit is for all photos in the post not each photo, so you may have to resize the ones already posted. That might give you the ability to post more pictures. I could be wrong though. Maybe @rhwimmers or @tanknovice can help.

    My NUVO 10 was started with live rock and some live bacteria. It worked, but I still lost fish in the beginning. Personally for me, in the future if I ever start up a tank again, it would go through a full natural cycle. Rushing in this hobby isn't a great idea in my honest opinion. Also if you get in the habit doing 2 gallon waterchanges weekly, you don't need a skimmer. Save that money for frags!

    Thank you both! That is what I hear. Both excited...my body keeps waking me up earlier and earlier and I can't get back to sleep. Maybe someone is trying to prepare me to be a zombie when I'm actually trying to rest

    Congrats! My daughter just turned 1 on the 14th. Life is very different but can’t believe we ever lived without her.

    A cooler works great or styrofoam box of some kind. Maybe a heat pack if you can find them. Walmart often has some, the hand warmer kind is what I've gotten from them before.

    I renewed because I want to support my local reefing club. I’ve also made new friends and would love to meet more members in the future.
