  1. Going to be out of town so will miss this one.
  2. Had a great time at the meeting last night. Thanks for hosting Mike
  3. Hi everyone. I’m upgrading to a bigger tank and need 2 more able bodies to help get it carried in my basement. Tank , stand and canopy will be delivered to my house on January 21 st approximately 4 pm. It’s a big tank; 270 gallons, and already have 6 people to help but was advised to get 2 more. It won’t take very long as I’m not setting it up yet, just getting it in my house at this time. Please let me know if anyone is available to help. Thanks
  4. Hope everyone had a great stress free Thanksgiving!
  5. My new tank will be here in about a month. I’m looking to borrow some brutes, stock tanks, or other large containers to hold my current rock, fish and new saltwater while making the transfer. I will probably need to use them for 2 to 3 weeks time frame and looking to get them in about 2 weeks. Please let me know if anyone can help with this request. Thanks
  6. I will go ahead and host the June, summer social this year.
  7. So I decided to keep my Interruptions Angelfish, since I can’t sell it for what I paid for it. And plan to upgrade my tank. I hope that will help with his aggression and also plan to add more larger angels. It will be 3 to 4 months before this happens. Need to save some more money!! I’ve decided on a Planet Aquarium tank, stand and canopy. (So, yes my current 180 tank w/ stand & canopy will be for sale at that point) First though I need some advice on the new tank. I really want their 270 gallon 84” x 30” x 25”, external overflow, bean animal, but due to cost have to keep my current sump, return pump and skimmer and was wondering if what I currently have will be big enough for this size tank. Current equipment: Return pump: Royal Exclusive Red Dragon 80 watts, 2113 gph/17 feet pressure height. Sump: Bashsea Signature Series 48” x 15” x 16”with 3 - 1 1/2” drains. Skimmer: ReefOctopus Elite 200 INT, rated at : heavy bio load -125 gal, medium -210 gal, light-300 gal My biggest concern I think is the skimmer. It may be too undersized. But I will also have the following to implement if needed for nutrient control, a fuge with Cheato, Auto Turf Scrubber, GFO Reactor, and a bio pellet reactor(which I still need to buy) So wondering if anyone can tell me if my current equipment will work on the 270 gallon tank. Otherwise I will have to go with a 220 gallon 84x24x25 Thanks
  8. Is there one thread already set up titled retro swap or is everyone supposed to post individually? Thanks
  9. Darn, can’t make it, I’m going to be on vacation with my grandkids.
  10. I have to email my phone pictures to myself then use my laptop to resize them. I use Paint that came with my computer to reduce the pixels to 600 x 800 then upload them. There may be editing software for your phone to do this but I don’t have one on my phone or know what app that would be. It is a hassle but it works.
  11. Light came in very quickly, I was surprised how quick I got it. It is already installed. I didn’t get before pick but I can post some after. I have a 14 k bulb now but thinking of putting in a 20k bulb. I will get some pictures later when light comes on.
  12. I went ahead and ordered the Reef Brite 175 watt Metal Halide/LED Hybrid. Also got the dimmer controls for the leds so I can have sunrise/sunset ramp up and down times on the tank.
  13. The led lights I have now is now longer being made. It is a Vertek Illumina.
  14. I looked at T5’s but can’t do them cause smallest size is 24”. Tank is only 20” cube. I don’t want the light sticking out over the tank.
  15. I am strongly leaning towards the Reef Brite mh/led hybrid. I was thinking about the 250 watt cause the size bulb is easier to find than the 150 watt but wondering if that will be too much for my 34 gallon Red Sea reefer 170.
