  1. Want to buy calcium reactor

    Lol yea. And I don't know about you but I'm trying to keep CO2 out of my tank. It scares me ALOT more than dumping a weeks worth of Calcium Chloride. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
  2. Curb pick up bowfront project (finally started)

    Oh sorry Dakota forgot to warn you about the possible bacterial bloom/cloudiness that has a chance of happening. But I see you figured it out[emoji6]. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
  3. 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
  4. Sealing plywood

    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
  5. What is this and how do you get rid of

    That's what it looks like to me too. The best no-chemical way of getting rid of it and it not coming back is increase the flow in your tank. Cyano starts in dead flow areas of your tank and spreads. Some hermits will eat it. I have even seen Twin-spot gobies eat it off the sand. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Darn newbies. We don't say nice things about James. As it is he never shuts up. Gosh, people, people, people. Ok at the next meet you have to sit next to him the entire time. Your going to have to hear about his tank, his furbabbies, about the time his light went nuts at a meet, was like a disco. That one time at band camp...... Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
  8. 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
  9. Well we went to ReefScapes today for some club business. While I was talking to them, my wife comes to me and says "I want a fish". Well once we finished talking to them she showed me "THE FISH". Well the new fish is a "rental" we will be able to keep it in the 65 for a little while then it's going to have to move to the 90 for what we hope a couple of years. Either that or we're going to have to find a 200 gallon to house this baby in. We are now the proud parents to a 2 inch long Emperor Angelfish. And since we already were in Pensacola we thought we'd go down and see Steven at Petland. Mistake, first tank looked at there was a Blue Star Leopard Wrasse. I was thinking "good it's on hold" Playing with Steven I said "can you tell the guy it died?" Then he says "Oh I meant to scrape that off, that guy already picked those up". The wrasse was hunting well looked healthy so the wrasse the wife has wanted since the first time she saw it, is now another new member of our tank.

    Just did a little clean up in the fish room. Got some organization going on now. Not just on the floor now. Still need to hook up the UV. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

  13. Frag swap tank

    Hey peeps, been a bit from the last time I posted. Been super busy helping at the store. But I wanted to let everyone know we have a special tank at SB Reefs. It's a frag swap tank. The idea is you drop off 2 frags and get 1. It's a little barren right now we need to have people drop off frags. Get with Mike or myself (Trent) if you want to drop somethings off and come back in a few weeks to pick one up. We will be impartial about swaps. We're not going to let someone drop off a birds net and get a nice chunk of jedi mind trick. Oh yea no GSP, Xenia, Kenya tree you know the stuff. Also you ever have that problem where you can't get together with someone to make a trade. Well just let us know what's going down and we'll be happy to be the swap point. Drop off your frag and come back in a day or so and pick your new one up. You might have been thinking "hey wait if I drop off 2 but only pick 1, SB is getting free frags once it's full" ummm nope. When it starts to fill up and whenever we have meets a bunch will goto the raffle so the club makes the money and pay the bills. We at SB Reefs are doing this to say thank you to the reef club and community for being supportive of our first full year open. And we look forward to many more years of sèrving reefers like you. Come on in and chat with us. We really do want to hear about your tank. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

  15. Aqueon Black Pine 75 Gallon Tank Stand

    Clay be careful that's Lee. He maybe thinking he'll take the stand off your hands and get $50. But he'll walk away and you'll feel good about getting that good of a deal. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

  18. Little help

    Have fun with the test kit. Potassium test takes 20min alone. BTW it's Potassium, Iodine, and Iron. Kbass is right if you added what BRS says to for your sized tank in an established tank, it will csuse problems. GFO is one of those things that too little is best cuz too much is disastrous. Just fo instance if the calculator said you need 1 cup. Start off with 1/8 a cup. Work your way up to the 1 cup over many changes. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
  19. Little help

    You can go to the local big box hardware store and get liquid stump remover. It's potassium nitrate. Raise both with one dose. I'd keep it small to start with maybe 20ml a day to start. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
  20. Little help

    Check your potassium. Duncans are a good indicator of potassium levels. Too high it shrinks up too low it shrinks up. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
  21. Questions about montipora...

    Unsure about the phoenix but the Jedi Mind Trick is primarily an encrusting monti that will do some plating not much, mainly when growing from one rock to another. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk

    Those little air fresheners that atomizes a little bit into the air are tank killers. Make sure one isn't near by. Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
  23. New to the forum

    Welcome to our little closet society of saltwater fanatics. One of these days we'll stand infront of the world and proclaim that we are reefers and proud of it. And we will frag anything if we think we could sell it, just so well can get our next fix. "Come here you little rock flower I've been looking for you" Sent from my SM-J700P using Tapatalk
