  1. Thanks! I had Jermey at Modern bring them in for me.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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?
  6. Lorelai and I will be available to help Friday evening for setup.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Thanks! unfortunally I don’t believe I will be attending the meeting or the swap. 🤷‍♂️😞
  11. https://www.redbubble.com/people/tehSAC/shop So I know we all have different feelings on masks and the pandemic going on. However I don’t want to make this political or push an agenda. My wife works on the front lines in the ICU and the importance of masks are real to me and my family. I’ve taken a few of my favorite photos of my tank and have made them into masks. If interested the link is above. Buy them and be stylish when you visit your LFS.
  12. I'm running one on my NUVO 10, and I agree it was overwhelming. I went with the BRS AB+ setup as a base, and removed all whites, greens, and reds. I also slowly acclimated my tank/corals over 3 months using the acclimation setting. Been running with that since August of last year.
  13. Thank you! It’s slowly getting to where I want it to be. Hopefully by year end I’ll be running out of room for corals.
  14. Tank is starting to show some consistent growth. The SPS trial run is doing better than I thought, but no intention of adding anymore to this tank. Only issue is with the Yellow favia. Its been receding quite a bit over the past few weeks. Had some cyano issues and I think it effected it the most. This tank is stocked with mostly frags from members of this club. There are only a few frags in this tank that have been bought at swaps that continue to grow and be happy. That is special to me because it really says we have a great group of members here, and their frags are great quality! On that note, I hope everyone is continuing to be safe, and healthy.
  15. Hope everyone is staying safe out there. Nothing new is going on with the tank. Had some cyano issues a couple weeks back, and upped the flow to get rid of it. The additional flow really pissed off the acans and sadly I have lost them. The cyano took out the rainbow hornets too, which was a bummer, but life goes on.
  16. I know some that use it and enjoy it. I cut the cable a year ago. We already had Netflix, but we added Hulu Live and Disney+. I have had no regrets cutting the cord. Honestly I have more to watch now than I did with Dish. Well I should restate that, my wife and kids have more to watch than they did before. I rarely watch TV haha.
  17. If you ever frag those out, I'd like to have a frag.
  18. I ran a kessil A80 over my nuvo 10 for a few years. Did a good job, but turned out not being enough for my tank. Honestly don't believe they are good for tanks over 5 gallons. I'm running an AI Prime HD now, and love it.
  19. Never. Stops. Moving. 🤪 thanks! I am using an IPhone XR with the Polyplab Lens I got from @Gonzo620
  20. Here are the frags I picked up from Mr. Grimes. So many to choose from, not enough cash to bring them all home. These 4 will fit right in though.
  21. Tank as of yesterday. Picked up a couple new stunning frags from @ReefNewby82 this afternoon. Gonna get them acclimated and hopefully covering parts of the rock work that is bare from loosing the blue hammer coral. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned in the past but this tanks corals are 80% from members of this club.
  22. Mike, Sorry that you and the staff had to go though all of this, but I believe its the best decision in the long run. See you all in August!
  23. I hope everything goes well this weekend. My wife, a nurse, would rather my daughter and I avoid crowds at this time. Bummer cause I had cash to burn but I’ll save it for another time.
