  1. Sorry, I didn't see some of these lasts posts until this am (Sun). Spoke or texted with a number of the above, But wanted to say thank you for all pitching in and bringing food & drinks etc. I hope some of you who took pictures will post them here because this was great time. WHAT A BLAST! Really enjoyed getting to meet some of the new members. Haven't spent anytime looking for a stray mermaid, but haven't noticed her yet either.... There may have to be some form of retribution to those delinquents who aided in or instigated of hiding of said mermaid.... LOL. 14,236 days... made it through another one!

  2. Future meeting hosts, there’s a little game that was started at the summer social this year, involving small mermaid aquarium decoration being hidden in the house. If and when Craig finds it, he’s going to pay it forward to one of you. If you find it, keep it going… 😸

  7. These are all from the last time I was part of the club. I think my old pictures were deleted, but I remember we used to be very limited with how many pictures we could post at that time.

  12. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  25. A good "re-start" after a very difficult 2020 and 2021. I know many are still concerned about limited group events but this went quite well for most attending! We'll get back to record numbers soon. I know this took an incredible amount of work, effort, patience, and perseverance to pull this event off. Thank you to the board and especially Mike for making this happen!

  30. 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 lot of space to be able to get a good look at all the tables before deciding what you want to purchase. Be wary though, don’t wanna come back to a table just find the coral you were thinking about had sold moments ago. Bring a well insulated cooler to keep the corals as comfortable as you can till you get them to their new homes. And lots of money lol 😂 Bring cash just in case it the only method accepted by vender/hobbiest (It’s 2021 no reason other methods shouldn’t be but you never know) Have fun, meet lot of new people, talk fish and coral with everyone.

  31. 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, slow and steady.

  38. 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!

  39. 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.

  45. Thank you for hosting. It was good to see everyone at the meeting. It looks like your plan for the new build is well on it's way. Very detailed, well planned and executed. Very Nice! You'll have to host again next year so we can see your accomplishments. (Hosting next year is also true for Mike Duffy, Mike Miller and Bob Myer). Im looking forward to seeing these tanks grow out.
