  1. I had a hammerhead go belly up recently and it was due to a change in flow and lighting. More the flow than the lighting. I had removed a large leather coral from the middle of the tank where the flow from my wave makers meet which causes a strong downward flow in the middle of the tank. This resulted in a strong flow of water directly on the hammer head. The leather coral was over the hammerhead and reduced the flow in that area. It was doing great before I removed the leather coral and within a week it was gone. I have read that this can happen when the flow is too much and the soft tissue of the coral rubs against the sharp edges of the coral skeleton. I found this on saltwateraquariumblog.com. I am sure there are better articles out there. "Like most large polyp stony corals, a torch coral benefits from moderate water flow. The polyps will remain retracted and under-inflated if the water current is too fast because the large flowing polyps are prone to rip and tear in high or ultra-high current environments."
  2. Looks very nice!! a That canopy looks great! I like the rock work as well.
  3. Marcia, Kyle, and I are still planning on coming and we are bringing BBQ Beans and a corn salad.
  4. Awesome! May take a couple of days for the fish to get used to it.
  5. Very nice! Wish I would have seen this post before we bought our masks. Bring some to the summer social, you may be able to sell a few.
  6. Awesome! Is that the RBTA you got from me? If so, be careful, mine keep splitting. I have about 7 of them now in my frag tank.
  7. I will be home all weekend. 11375 Whitewater Way, Fishers. east of 116th and Cumberland Rd. Neighborhood with be on the south side of 116th. Spyglass Falls. Waterfalls at the entrance. You can text me at 317-213-4832 if you decide to come pick it up this weekend.
  8. I have a fish trap that you can hang in the aquarium that you can borrow. I am in Fishers. I have the same fish and noticed that one of my frag rocks a missing a bunch of Zoa's....Guess I know now what is happening to them. I thought they were reef safe as well.
  9. Very nice! Looking forward to seeing the progress! Love the color of stain you chose.
  10. Marcia and I will be there! May talk Kyle into coming as well. He's been home from Purdue since Spring Break so I don't think it will be too hard to convince him to do something social. Hanging out with mom and dad everyday at 22 can get old quickly! Can't wait to see everyone!
  11. I have an old Halide set up (transformer and light) that you can have if you haven't found a solution yet. May be overkill for a 32 gallon system. I believe it is 200w and the dimensions should be close to your 32 gallon.
  12. 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!!
  13. @indymatt; Facebook live event is a good idea and we will definitely take that into consideration.
  14. We have also been speaking with vendors who have attended frag swaps this past weekend in New York and other locations; however, as I stated earlier things have dramatically changed from last weekend through yesterday. Overall, the attendance was down but turn out this past weekend was still strong considering the threat of the Corona Virus; particularly in the New York area.
