  1. Planning on being there if I can get out of work early
  2. Anyone volunteered/been nominated for Education? (Hi. I'm "new" but not really)
  3. Had a fantastic time getting to see all of you in person and got some amazing corals added. Thanks to Doug and Cheryl for hosting and for having such excellent systems to gawk at!
  4. I was unable to find a Buy/Sell forum or thread... Am I missing something? NVM... I wasn't logged in. 🙄
  5. This isn't today is it? *Sigh* Just collected a ton of caulerpa and codium to make the trip...
  6. Not really able to bring anything exciting this time, but can't wait to see what I can find to cram into my little reef.
  7. Hi again all. Back from the reef-less place again, kind of. This is my work showcase tank. Started this in March of 2021 on the first day of my new job; after a drastic change of direction in my career path. At it's core it is a FluvalSEA EVO 13.5 with the standard filtration block in chamber 2, the FluvalSEA PS2 Mini Protein Skimmer (replaced 3 times due to pump failures) in chamber 1. The circulation pump and heater occupy chamber 3 and both have been upgraded from the recommended specs for more constant/reliable temperature regulation and more flow respectively. An old-skool deep sandbed wasn't really practical with the given space, so I tried my best to get a really well populated 2-3 inches (with bugs from as many different places as I could managed and using two varieties of pre-packaged live-sand for the base. Corals consists of donated frags from regular customers along the way, some frugal rescues of stressed/damaged frags, and cherry-picked favorites purchased from Petco (Bloomington Magnet Store), Tidal Gardens (online), and most recently Modern Aquatics (Stellar corals there!). Personal highlights include: - a branch of "Tracy Morgan" gorgonian (center-stage on the sand) - a nuclear candy cane (bottom-left on the rock base) - some Bam-bam zoas (middle-right behind some C. prolifera) - a recovering-from-brown-out rainbow monti (top-center behind the "E" in "GREAT"). I'm a plant-hoarder at heart, so there are also 3 varieties of Caulerpa sp., Codium sp. mounds, Gracilaria. Fish are limited to: - Koumansetta rainfordi "court jester" or "Rainfordi" gobies (2) - Stonogobiops yasha "Yasha gobies" (2) - Elacatinus multifasciatus "green-banded gobies" (2) - Acanthemblemaria hastingsi "cortez blenny" (1; received as a panamic barnacle blenny) Because I'm me, the fish are pretty secondary to the inverts which include: - Fire cleaner shrimp (1) - Red-banded pistol shrimp (2; paired symbiotically, one each with the Yasha gobies) - Pom-pom crabs; with pom-poms! (3) - Sexy shrimp (6) - Bumblebee shrimp (2) - porcelain crab, white with brown spots; filter feeder (1) - anemone crab, green-brown with teal highlights; filter feeder (1) - Bumblebee snails (5) - Nerite snails (3) - Stomatella snails (many) - Collonista snails (many) - Asterina stars (many) - Brittle micro stars (several) Good to be back. Cheers, Scott "Densityman" Chevalier
  8. Posted a few of the save the date placards (courtesy of Jeremy) around the Bton Petco.
  9. Putting this on the calendar and looking forward to rejoining the madness.
  10. So are LED banks the new metal halides?
  11. Thanks for the "Subscriptions" tip (I figured it out after posting, but assumed that was for topics I was subscribed to - LOL). All paid up and ready to spend money on tanks/water/stuff. Starting small... need to stay mobile for the time being. Looking to start in something long and deep. Was originally planning another 10g mantis tank, but may step that plan up to a 20L. Still formulating a plan.
