    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. 🤔

    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 methods for treatment for the betterment of our hobby. Look forward to meeting some local hobbyists!!!

    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.

    Stopped by this place yesterday evening. Store looks good (clean, well taken care of livestock), though the stock on salt water was a little low (I know they recently opened and are feeling out the market). They had some cool reptiles and birds too. Definitely a place worth checking out for any members who are on the south side, or make it south anytime. Glad to have another local store to be able to peruse.

    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.

    Hi all. The fall season is kicking off, hope everyone is enjoying their fall weather (finally!), football, and pumpkin flavored everything. We wanted to get this months meeting posted to give everyone time to dig through their closets and attics for any used equipment that you may not be using. November’s meeting will be a “Pay it Forward” meeting where we are asking people to bring their misc items that they would be willing to donate to other members to fill those gaps others may have to get that last piece needed for a new setup, QT tank, sump, etc. Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting but only PAID MEMBERS will be eligible to choose items. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. We had a great turn out last year for this. We have lots of new members and hope to have a great turn out. We will also be hosting a Skype meeting with Larry DuPont from LRS (Larry's Reef Services, maker of LRS frozen food). He will be discussing food and nutrition with us. This is definitely a don't miss meeting!! We also have 10 packs of LRS foods to give away as door prizes!! Quick note on courtesy: We will be limiting any person to 2 items until everyone has had their choice. Please don’t be the person who takes good will freebies and goes and sells them. Don’t think that needed to be said for anyone I know in the club but there is sometimes that one person. When: Nov 9th 4:00-6:00 PM Where: Luis's house in Lebanon (Gonzo620) 1727 Jaques Dr Lebanon IN 46052

    I don't have personal experience but they have not shipped in well to the shop. I know they are planktonic feeders in the wild and after time and some diligence can accept flakes and brine. They do well in groups with big enough tanks too. Richard Ross at the steinhart museum knows of keeping them very well from what I understand.

    The tank has had water in it for just under two months and this is what we came up with, please remember I am a terrible photographer. I am still playing around with the lighting and am missing one of the Radians, in for repair or replacement

    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.

    Thanks Ryan. Tank is shallow and will have good coverage from front to back with 8 bulbs. I also considered the matrixx ii in white gloss finish from Giesemann, but i am happy with my final decision
