  1. DK Reef Treasures

    Finally got a chance to swing by this LFS today. Lots of corals, good prices, I picked up a couple of nice hammer frags. They also had a beautiful Pintail Fairy Wrasse for only $100 (I already have one). That is a crazy good price for such a nice wrasse! I highly recommend checking this place out!
  2. Wth or trade for a zebrasoma tang

    You’d probably have better luck with a Foxface, or Tech M Is known to contain an impurity which usually eradicates bryopsis. Worked for me just a few months back.
  3. WTB: 55 gal w/stand

    Got what I needed. This thread can be closed.
  4. WTB: 55 gal w/stand

    Looking for a standard 55 gallon tank (48x12x20) and stand. Don't need anything else, just the tank & stand. This will primarily be used as a holding/observation tank, so the stand doesn't have to be pretty and the tank just needs to hold water.
  5. SB's first Sunday...... October

    Looking forward to it!
  6. Bleaching liverock

    Bleach will eventually 100% evaporate, only leaving a salt-like residue (harmless) behind. If you wanted to pull it out of the rock quicker... soak it in RODI, run a circulation pump and use some sodium thiosulfate to neutralize the chlorine. Chlor Out (available at most pool supply places) contains sodium thiosulfate and is safe to use: https://sunplay.com/products/haviland-chlor-out-chlorine-neutralizer
  7. Aquarium equipment yard sale 9/15

    What size tanks/stands?

  9. Are you ready?

    How late will you be open tomorrow (Friday)? Wife & I will be in Pensacola tomorrow evening, and would like to finally see your store.
  10. That would be a safer way of doing this. Just keep the "new rock" in a sterilite container with circulation and a heater.
  11. So long as you keep the rock submerged in water during transport, everything should be fine. Sometimes a mini-cycle (brief ammonia spike) can occur when you disturb a tank like this, but an ammonia alert badge and some Prime will cover you if that happens. The main thing I would be worried about is does this rock come with any coral pests or encysted stages of fish diseases (like ich or velvet).
  12. Frag Friday

    Are these specials only available on Fridays? Is there a new/different special every Friday?
  13. Sbreef ultra leds intensity

    I'm just gonna say I hate LEDs because of having to always fiddle with the settings to dial in the channels just right. (And I have 11 tanks with various LED fixtures.) Someday I'm going back to T5s and/or halides, just change the bulbs every 12 months and call it a day.
  14. First coral

    ^^ Agree; but go with some nice Ricordeas or something. Those don't seem to spread as quickly & detach/roll around.
  15. Bluewater Zoo

    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.
  16. First tank

    Nice looking tank!
  17. Ricordeas available

    I'll take them unless they're already spoken for.
  18. Looking for chaeto

    Please let me know if you have any to sell, or have seen any for sale at a Pensacola or Fort Walton LFS. TIA
  19. Looking for chaeto

    Thanks Keith, we need to gtg soon man.
  20. Water Quality for Coral

    25-30ppm here in Navarre: I've lived in cities where the TDS of the tap was in the 100s.
  21. 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.
  22. Complete 40g Breeder peninsula

    If you decide to part out, I would be interested in the lights, PH monitor and probably some of the livestock. But hopefully you can sell the entire system, as it does look beautiful!
  23. Bio pellet reactor

    I've used BRS biopellets in both their reactor and a Phosban 150. Works great for reducing nitrates, but both get clogged easily and require maintenance. It's important to use filter socks when running a reactor down in your sump, to keep the foam prefilter (somewhat) free of debris. Also, you want the reactor's output to be near your skimmer's input and expect more waste to be exported into the collection cup.
