  3. I want to say thank you to everyone for coming out the swap this past weekend. I also want to thank all of the hobbyist and vendors. We had a great attendance for the new venue. And a big thank you to all the volunteers and staff who helped to pull this together on setup, during the event, and tear down. We have lots of new members and lots of renewals. We hope that everyone will continue to stick around and I really hope to get the forums going again.

  6. 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.

  7. So Jenn and I have been absent for a while now...and some of you may already know now that we are expecting our first child mid September. We are both very excited. We (I lol) have been working tirelessly on projects around the house the last few months to prepare for our baby boy. Here is one of them that we are proud of. My aunt is an artist and is helping us with a coral reef mural on one wall of the nursery. We are nowhere near done yet but here is a sneak peak of what we wrapped up today....

  8. I got an adult Interruptus angle almost 2 years ago and have been on the look out for a juvenile to pair it with. In February I was finally able to get my hands on a juvenile. After quarantine and observation tank for a while I put her in acclimation box in DT for 2 days. Just released her today. Minor chasing for the first couple of hours as seen in the video, and now they are good! No more chasing or posturing. I really am surprise and happy on how well the introduce went. (sorry for the reflections on the glass and all the micro bubbles in tank) https://youtu.be/ykhJowdcLh8 h

  9. Hi everyone, hope the reefing has been well these days, I miss it! I just wanted to recognise the fact you all have Sanjay speaking at the swap this year. For anyone that doesn't know this, he is like the Bill Gates of lighting in the reefing world. I will 100% be at this event and everyone should attend this. I just wanted to tell indmas staff that they did an excellent job! I'm pumped! Thanks, Luke

  10. Update on these guys. All is well and they have doubled in size! Found a few more shortly after my first post. A week ago had a couple die do to some kind of slime/bacteria that was covering the two anemone. I think it was caused by some leftover food. With a new total of 20 babies! I hope to not have anymore loses.

  13. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone this evening during set up. I apologize for not saying it in person, mainly because everyone was so busy. I’m pretty new to this group and I don’t know many, but everyone was so awesome tonight. Made my daughters week being able to help as much as she could. Cannot wait for tomorrow! Drive safe everyone.

  16. 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....

  17. 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....

  20. Will try to make it, at least for a bit. It's been a little crazy the past year and just we just welcomed our daughter Kara to the family this weekend and a nice break outside in the sun on that deck just might do the trick! I'm off for a couple weeks, if weather cooperates I'll try and smoke something tasty.

  23. She had to have a shirt that matched the rest of the family, so I had one made for her. Now she is saying she is going to have a tank like daddy someday, but only one Nemo, and more coral. 🤣 Always a critic. 🤔

  24. Hey Guys! I just wanted to take a second and introduce myself! My Name is Kyle Delello and I have been in the Hobby for a couple years. I run a Red Sea 750XXL and I am a major fish nerd. I have some soft coral and LPS, but my tank is dedicated to the fish! I don't have a good excuse as to why it took me so long to join here, other than I spend tons of time on Reef2Reef as I am a moderator there. 3fordfamily is a very good friend of mine, I HOPE THAT DOESNT COUNT AGAINST ME I also have 6 QT's in my basement as I am a major fish disease nerd and I am constantly trying new meth

  25. Tank has been on autopilot since the softball season has started. Having a little bit of coral warfare going on with the candy canes and euphyllia, but I knew that was going to eventually happen. Overall good growth and the ricordea I purchased from Luis has split twice since I picked it up from him. I'm still eyeballing an upgrade to a lagoon tank, but right now I love this little tank. Cannot see me ever going larger than 25 gallons to be honest. Love the ease and simplicity of its little footprint.

  31. It depends. For ones where you see a progression of the amount of white let's say then yes that's typically the way. But a lot of these designers are by mixing various strains or even species. For example, the long fins were a naturally occurring 1 in a million fish that they then mated with another fish for production, maybe a sibling but maybe not. The point being it wasn't a line bred situation that I typically refer to as a "strain". This convo has sparked my interest. I am going to ask some people about it to see what they say. I will let you know.

  32. So I know how inexpensive plugs are, but I still wanted to give it a whirl. I’m totally a DIY guy so why not plugs. Saves me a few buck and can possibly make some too. Started out by making the mold. First I cut a 3”x10”x2” thick block of delrin plastic work was about to trash into 4 strips. Next I bolted them back together with 6 long bolts. Then I drilled a 3/8” holes in a staggered pattern 1-1/4” deep. This will be the stems of the plugs. Once all the 3/8” holes were drilled I used a 7/8” drill bit to make the crowns. I drilled down 1/4” in depth. Next step was the reci

  33. Thank you for hosting Bill. Your aquarium and system are terrific! What a great time seeing everyone, and there was enough food for twice the crowd. Joining Indmas just a few short years ago was one of my better moves, not only for all the collective knowledge, but to meet such a great group of people. I wish all of you a safe, relaxing, and Merry Christmas!

  34. Modern Aquatix has donated a $25 gift certificate for tomorrow folks!! We have over $200 in raffles for this meeting alone. Lots of foods, raffles, gift exchange and cool reefers! Sounds like a divine way to end the 2017 INDMAS year to me

Unfortunately I was a recent victim as all other Photobucket users were and can no longer show my photobucket photos online. I'll post some pics tomorrow. Thanks in advance. Copps

  37. 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.

  41. I will post pics of my collection for any stick heads that are intrested. I am 3D printing frag transporters for any one that wants to order one they will be $10. They will come in a water tight container and will post other pics latter but PM if you want one as they take 5 hours to make. These are PETG and safe for aquarium use.

  42. Thanks for hosting this! I had so much fun!! I found a Marine Betta for $55 and feel so lucky. Brought home a large lobo and a lavendar tang. My husband and I truly had a great time. 😊

  43. With the great turn out we had at the frag swap, we gained a lot of new members and had a lot of renewals. Setting up the new members and taking care of the renewals are going to take a little bit of time to get everything updated. Please be patient with me as I am trying to get these done as quickly as I can. It may be a week or so before everything is done. Thank you, Kyle

  46. I know behind the scenes there has been a lot of work, co-ordination... and maybe some panic-ey times... but from my view it looks like a very well organized well oiled machine. Looks like its going to be another fantastic event!

  47. A HUGE Shout out to Luis (Gonzo620) for cutting out the baffles for my sump... I was able to spend New Year's day with him and his family and enjoying that gorgeous 180 he has... I got home and was able to get the baffles measured and taped up and then I used Premium Aquatics black silicone to affix them to the aquarium... I am def not the best at silicone but I wanted it to be thick so it would hold up just in case I didn't do it 100% correct... You can see the HUGE Smile on my face now that this part of the project is complete... I wanted a larger fuge area but with my future skimmer with
