    Hey All Trent here, been around, lurking. Kinda hard for me to do my usual post using just my phone. Computer died sometime back. Anyhow I'm pushing thru using this little keyboard with these fat fingers(atleast it's qwerty and not T9) to let you all know about this coming meet. Sunday, October 7th doors open at 10:30am. Along with all the usual goodies, we have a guest speaker. I begged and pleaded, got him in a corner and threatened the life of his fish. Na, I asked real nice, even said please [emoji16]. Anywho, this months special guest speaker is Humblefish, he will be doing a presentation on fish diseases and how to identifying them. If we show him some love on this post he might even tell us how to treat them. Looking forward to seeing everyone there. Trent Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    I somehow JUST noticed this thread. If needed, and not in use by me at the moment, I have five 10 gallon tanks, two 29 gallon, a growing pile of air pumps and small heaters, tubing, airstones, a few totes, some suction cup glass moving handles, and a pretty well stocked medicine cabinet. Oh, and an Aqua medic fish trap when I ever get around to cleaning it back up and putting it back in its box where it belongs, lol.

    They are real good to hobbiests that like to trade and commission coral frag. Love em for that and they are responsible with their sourcing unlike most that just rip corals off the reefs and resell. High quality fish as well.

    Just wanted to express my appreciation for this LFS in FWB. Their SW selection isn't the biggest, but fish & inverts are nice/reasonably priced. The owners are kind and personable. I really like that they sell live blackworms, which is great for getting finicky new fish to eat.

    We're going to start having a meeting the first Sunday morning of each month 11am-noon @SBReefs in Davis Hwy, next to Bailey's farmers market. Each meeting someone will be presenting a topic for education and discussion. Love to have volunteers. Basic topics are great! Coffee drinks and donuts provided. Here's the kicker. Store will be closed until noon. We're allowing folks to bring corals and used equipment to sell or trade to each other. You can even use the "FRPS" club tank to display your corals. This will be open to new customers of the store as current reef club members. We are hoping to grow the reef club that way, as well as educate those new to the hobby. Seating will be limited so bring a camp chair. We will have a screen set up in the warehouse, plenty of room. First meeting is at 11am Sunday July 1st. Full disclosure: meeting is being held at and sponsored by SB Reefs and is not an official FRPS meeting...yet. [emoji4] Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    It's Alive!!!! 2018-06-11_12-37-59 by drauka99, on Flickr 2018-06-11_12-37-30 by drauka99, on Flickr Did some leak testing this weekend (passed all with flying colors) and Ended up filling the tank up with tap water (ours is surprisingly low TDS) onto the dry rock I had. Going to let it soak for a week or so and then do a 100% water change with good RO/DI water and get it cycling. I did go a bit overboard on my return pumps. 2 Varios 8's are a bit much. even with 1-1/2 drains they struggle to keep up. I have both set on the lowest setting on thier controller and there is a bunch of flow through the sump. 2018-06-11_12-39-13 by drauka99, on Flickr

    I think a more likely explanation is there were some zoas or palys on the same rock that he didn't notice. Perhaps inside a crevice or buried under the xenia.

    The SB boxes have a lot of purple that the phone camera picks up. I try and turn the blue channel almost all the way down but it still grabs it. This is not with the blues down. This side of the tank is a nice area.

    Humble, you do need to go. It's a good small expo to get your feet wet. Cuz when you get things rolling, you should hit every possible expo/convention you can the first year. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Wow, that’s some good water. I thought water here on base was great ~130TDS, still not bad. My DI also lasts a very long time as I have only 1 TDS going in the first DI Stage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I have lived in a few different water systems in the area and all the water from the tap has always tested pretty dang good. My current one is abount 60ppm tds out of the tap, i wondered why my DI was lasting so long and if my tds meter was bad after I moved so I bought a new one and confirmed it. 60 TDS in, 0 TDS after 2 sediment filters, 1 carbon and RO filter (I run the 150gpd kit from BRS so the waste from one RO goes into the second then joins back to the DI canisters) and obviously 0 TDS after dual DI. My water in Niceville/Valparaiso was around 120-130 TDS from the tap, same setup got it to 1-2TDS before the DI canisters. I had a TDS "wand" tester that I gave a friend in Illinois, I thought it went bad or something after she used it the first time, found out it was still accurate. Her TDS tested out of the tap at close to 400PPM, another friends in the same area was just as bad and others I know have even worse.

    All of my tanks are always barebottom. Coralline covers the bottom eventually and corals encrust over it. Easier to clean and have high flow.

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sabrina and I'm the owner of DK Reef Treasures. What got me started in saltwater aquariums was my marine biology class in high school. We had to take care of an aquarium for the whole year. After seeing the coral grow my passion for the hobby grew more intensely. I've been wanting to have my own business for years and I finally got the courage to make that leap. Why not do what you love for a living? Since I was a hobbiest before a business owner, I know what it's like to be worried about a new store. I plan to provide you happy, healthy coral and the best service you could receive.

    You could use epoxy paint. In fact on garf.org it shows you how to make a plywood tank with epoxy paint. Next best option is that Flexseal paint. I used it on the catch tray for my sump, but you don't brush that stuff on, use a wide putty knife. Real thick. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Good stuff, Bif! I'd say the work you put into this definitely paid off. Do you still have that clam? -Kamran

    Well if you're color blind hanna checkers are the only way to go. They are easier and more precise, but more expensive per test...... for the first set of 25 test. The refills are only $8-10, for 25 more test. If you have the capital to fork out $150 for the 3 primary test (alk, ca, mg) go for it you won't regret it. Now if that is too much to swallow Red Sea makes a very good and repeatable kit for about $60 (includes all 3 test). For even less you can get the API saltwater master test kit, but in my oppion, you can get almost as accurate results by writing down random numbers. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Update: 13 Mar Three weeks in...All blue clove polyps are completely gone. I believe I had a slight cycle...my clam closed up, one SPS suffered some STN, Candy canes LPS don't look good, and I have some green algae. I stopped nitrate dosing for algae. Yesterday my clam opened back up...so I think I'm in the clear. On the bright side...ALL blue cloves are gone. It kills Waving Hand as well...I have some in the sump...GONE. As a note, I think I would have had some issues if I would have had much more die off. If you have a lot of blue clove, I would have Water Changes ready to go. Happy Reefing!
