    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 https://youtu.be/fMlf_42tTEM

    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.

    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. 🤔

    I would put any bends in the return lines. With the drain being gravity flow you want to keep that as free flowing as possible.

    Thanks for everyone's comments. I would really like to give a shout out to Mike for his above and beyond commitment and time that he put in, not only staying in contact with the Health Office, Hendricks County Fairgrounds, vendors attending other swaps, our local vendors and sponsors but finding an alternative date that will put us past this pandemic and give us time to put all the pieces back together for a successful swap. Great job Mike!!

    I am in the health care industry as well and will be attending the event. While everyone should practice proper health care (washing your hands, not touching your face, and I think given the current state of affairs we can opt out on shaking hands and hugs), I support that we should move forward with the frag swap. I work in the health care industry on a daily basis and I am aware of the situation we are facing. At the same time, if you have any symptoms of a cold, the typical flu, or corona virus please use the advice that has been given and stay home to self quarantine to minimize the spread of your illness. The cost to post pone this event and reschedule for a later time in the year plus the effort that goes into this by volunteers and vendors drove the decision to keep moving forward. The only option viable would be to cancel this year's Frag Swap entirely. While we expect that attendance will be lower due to the Corona Virus, we respect that everyone will need to make their own decision on attending the INDMAS frag swap for 2020.

    I've been here awhile, and I know a few of you from meetings. However I don't get around to meetings as much as I would like too, or my introverted self doesn't reach out to try and get to know you all as much as I would like. So in spirit of learning more about you, and to try and get a little participation going on these forums I'm starting this thread. I hope you all participate in some way or another to not only help me learn more about you, but help others as well. I always feel so lost at the swap or meetings, so maybe this will make us all feel a bit more comfortable. Maybe this will mold into a new chat thread for people that might want to chat about their tanks, the reefing community, and life in general.

    Hello everyone! So at the January meeting, I had brought up the discussion of moving to a digital membership card for the club. With almost everyone having email, cellphone, computer, and printer, it will make things easier for club members to have the card with them, or if they print it and lose it to get a replacement. I wanted to get some feedback from club members on the current design and idea of this. Attached is a prototype version.

    Well after care deliberation and with input from Jeremy at Modern Aquatics I decided in March of this year to shutdown my soft coral tank. This was not an easy decision but I had gotten complacent and I will admit I was bored and needed a new challenge. I would soon learn to be careful what I asked for in the future. The tank had been setup in this configuration for approx. 6 years as a soft coral tank and was populated with several large tangs and angels. Most of the tangs were starting to push the limits of the tank and I was becoming lazy on maintenance and up keep. I decided to go back to my roots and change it to a LPS and SPS dominated tank. I would sell off or give away everything but the live rock and start over This was the last picture of the tank I could find and I think it was about a year old

    Who else is coming? Great door prizes...great speaker...and some great pay it forward equipment. This can not be successful without a great attendance as well. Check your schedules, and call your in laws and tell them you had a flat tire...and then drive to Lebanon for Luis's and his wife's awesome ham sandwiches and rock nems!!!!!

    The plan was to move some of the coral to my work tank and get rid of the rest. We would then catch the fish and get them to someone with a large tank. In the end the 6 large tangs and rabbit fish were to be moved to a 2000 gallon plus system in Fishers maintained by Glenn of Aquarium Service and Design. The smaller tangs and assorted angels were moved to another tank maintained by Glenn. Without Glenn's and Jeremy's help this part of the project could not have been done. For reference the big dussumieri tang is about 14 inches long and 9 inches tall

    Premium Aquatics, Real Reef and JBJ teamed up to raffle off a 45g JBJ all in one tank and stand with 30 lbs of branch rock. Young reefer Will won this and him and his family drove it back to their Florida home. Love it when another teenager makes it into the hobby for little to no investment!

    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.

    I wanted to get some feedback, thoughts, ideas on starting a Dont Break The Chain idea that the Buckeye Reef club has been doing for a few years now. The post below was borrowed from their original post to explain what it is. "I would like to get a "Don't Break the Chain" going in the Supporter Forums. If anyone is not familiar.....This is a place where you can give a high end frag to a fellow hobbyist for them to grow out. Once this frag has grown and can be fragged again, it is reposted in the forum for the next person to take. The original donor can request a frag back if they have a crash or lose their colony. It's a great way to get really nice frags and pay it forward to the next guy/girl. Plus it keeps your frag babies spread out in case of a crash!"

    Hey club...we have a member in need of some help. Rodney has been in the club for a few years now and has blown out his knee. His wife doesnt know the first thing about them or how to clean them up. His two reefs are suffering and need some help. Can someone please PM me to work out the details to go to his home to help out? Rodney is hearing impaired so I would need to communicate with him about a list of items he needs help with and so he can have the water made and have the items necessary. He has everything there...it would just need one or two bodies to do regular maintenance on his systems. Who can help that is in his neck of the woods? Reply here and send me a PM please so we can set something up soon for him...

    Radions would be my suggestion, I run all Hydra HD on my two tanks, but I don't keep high end coral -- I hear they are fine for that though, too.

    So..... I took the month of November to really evaluate this tank and my desire to keep it. I went back and forth a lot last month. Doing minimal work and the necessary water changes on the tank to keep it going. I even sold off a few pieces of coral in preparation to shut it down. The desire to keep it going after vacation wasn't there like in the past, but something was still there to keep it going for November. At some point I decided to keep this little box of water and take it slow and get it back to what it once was. Another positive over that time was I saw an increase in growth in all of my corals. Decided to keep it going and enjoying the decision. Nothing like a few new additions to the tank to make you start loving it all over again, right? Thanks @puffdragon and @ddeurloo for the new additions! In the past week I have added: ORA Birdsnest Red Digitata Splatter Hammer Coral Neon Green Toadstool Neon Green GSP Tube Anemone I'd say that's a good end to 2019. We will see how they fair in 2020.

    My last tank was a 210 with regular glass and now I have a rimless with the same thickness glass but low iron and the difference is very noticeable to me and I would choose low iron if costs are not outrageous. It is probably a hundred or two difference for the front panel to be low iron unless someone is really trying to mark it up.

    Yes I did a 3D Reef diffuser, mainly to reduce shimmer, but also to reduce the light that is going into the eyes of people on the couch. I also now need to order a bunch of plumbing for the gate valve.

    Well it happened last night. Spent two hours removing frags, fragging off dead heads, and rescaping the tank. Ended up using 4 bottles of super glue gel as well. Lost the Superman shroom and at least one frogspawn. Basically the frogspawn that was showing polyp bailout issues. Might loose another hammer in the next couple days but I figured that would happen. My blue and yellow hammer are still looking great and as long as they are happy I’m happy. The new rock is a piece of caribsea liferock that has been cured in someones tank. I think it looks great. Not as over bearing as the last scape and very little shadowing issues. That was a huge problem for me and something I was trying to avoid with this change. Im excited to see the change and potential this has. My little nano has officially been rebooted. So I hope you stick along to see it’s second growth.

    You’ll want to siphon as much out as you can, and then use chemiclean. Cyano (in my opinion) is the best problem to have in this hobby, as it’s the easiest to rid of as long as you act fast and use the right treatments.

    Many thanks to Gonzo620 for coming today to rescue my fish today. I hope they will recover and live healthy fishy lives under his care. I also got some good advice and counseling so I’m not going to take down the tank. Instead I’m going to leave it empty of fish to hopefully stabilize and give whatever germs may be in there time to die out for lack of a host. The recommendation was two months and that sounds fine. I’ll probably black it out for at least half of that time to eradicate any cyano and algae that are hanging around, then if things look ok I’ll start again with a few fish and work up. Thanks again for the help.

    No need to apologize that’s the whole point of the forum my friend. What you have there is a Chiton. Aka the Rollie Pollie of the ocean 🤪. Here a link that should help with anything else you may find. http://www.lionfishlair.com/hitchhiker/hitchhiker.shtml

    Only it’s mother could love it! I swear this snail face looks a tad “human”. Creepy. Especially the appendage between the eyes that looks like a nose. I once had a chalice that resembled the face of a gorilla. That was creepy as well as it looked back at you.
