  1. So this will most likely be my last photo shared of this little nano. This has been quite the ride for my first saltwater tank, however lately have just not been as excited about the tank and/or reefing in general. Still not sure what is going to happen with the tank, but I'm walking away from things for awhile. Thank you to everyone I have met, bounced ideas off of, and to the club for giving all of us a place to enjoy this hobby together.
  2. My NUVO 10 was started with live rock and some live bacteria. It worked, but I still lost fish in the beginning. Personally for me, in the future if I ever start up a tank again, it would go through a full natural cycle. Rushing in this hobby isn't a great idea in my honest opinion. Also if you get in the habit doing 2 gallon waterchanges weekly, you don't need a skimmer. Save that money for frags!
  3. If ballgames are a rain out, I will probably be there. I have a few coral that need a trimming.
  4. Thanks! I had Jermey at Modern bring them in for me.
  5. Well that sucks, but I think its the best for all. Sadly, unless things change hobby wise for me, my last INDMAS swap was last year.
  6. I don't know about you all, but I've found a fondness for favia's lately. Here are two of the newest additions. A Yellow Submarine and a Spicy Lemon.
  7. Would love to try to attend, but the oldest turns 13 Saturday and I don't think that's what she has in mind for a birthday celebration. Have fun everyone!
  8. Thanks. Not full enough yet. The plan was to upgrade, but I cannot find the tank I want to upgrade to, so this will continue to be the path I am on. Its been up for 3.5 years, so whats another 3.5, right?
  9. Lorelai and I will be available to help Friday evening for setup.
  10. Picked up a haul of corals, rock, and a new media basket last week. From a local reefer and from Modern Aquatix. I believe I'm dealing with a diatom issue here. I do not get any film on the glass overnight but during the day I do. I have been advised to just keep doing waterchanges and it should pass in time. I also have a couple spots of GHA that I'm going to dab some Hydrogen Peroxide on during my next water change. Hopefully that will kill it off. I'm running chemi-pure blue in my media basket, but I have also added some carbon and phosphate pads in the basket to try and combat this issue. Lost by beautiful ORA birdsnest last week too. Accidentally dropped it onto the hammer coral over the weekend and was going to frag off the good pieces, but it was gone before I got home the next day. Dang bummer as it was beautiful, but it is what it is I guess. I've also lost the Red Digi that was growing so well. Not sure what happened with it, but I'm going to try one more time with a bubblegum digi eventually. Well here are a couple newer photos of the tank. I've placed the corals and also put in some more rock. The new rock and gives me a little more room to add a few more corals in the future. Oh and here is an updated coral list: Yellow Hammer (meshed into a green 🤷‍♂️ ) Splatter Hammer Date Night Paly's Cornbred Rainbow Infusion Paly's Rasta Zoa Fruit Loop Zoa Gorilla Nipple Zoa’s Scrambled Egg's Zoa's JF Fairy Tale Zoa's Utter Chaos Zoa's Rainbow Incinerator Zoa's Purple Rhodactus Mushroom Green/Purple Rhodactus Mushroom Pink/Purple Yuma Mushroom Candy Cane Coral Colony Purple Gorgs Pink Blasto Jack-O-Lantern Lepto Bejewled Favia Unnamed Yellow Favia Tyree Neon Green Toadstool (Long Polyp) Neon Green GSP Grim Reaper Torch Rainbow Clove Polyps Kedds Reds Zoas Nirvana Paly Gobstopper Paly Mandarin Orange Zoa Grandis Paly Yellow Submarine Favia
  11. Path for this tank is slightly changing. I would like to get a torch again and put it in an isolated place in the tank. Mainly in preparation to finally pull the trigger on a newer tank.
  12. I've had these issues with Euphyilla. In my case, not saying its yours, it wasn't good and the outcome wasn't good either. I've narrowed it down to a change in temperature during waterchanges as everything else was spot on. At least that is what I feel the reason for my losses. I'm very careful now of the temperature of the tank and freshly mixed water. My water volume is much lower than yours as well.
  13. Thanks! unfortunally I don’t believe I will be attending the meeting or the swap. 🤷‍♂️😞
