  4. Hi All, So as my wife and I and slowly doing renovations to the house, I had to shut down my Reefer 350 for the floors and paint to be finished in the living room, I am moving my livestock to a Nuvo as the tank was relatively young about 8 months. Equipment: Tank: Nuvo 20 Stand: Homemade Skimmer: Ghost DC skimmer Reactor: IM Minimax running GFO Heater: Cobalt Neotherm 100watt Powerhead: Vortech Mp10 Qd the plan is to tank a cup of sand from the old tank and a rock and some marine pure for to start the tank and move the clowns and coral over next Wed when the heater comes in from BRS. Here are are a few pics of stand and tank. Plan on making my first meeting Saturday and meeting many of you. Also im open to any recommendations and help along the way as a novice Reefer.

    Beautiful man. I wish I can keep all the sides clean like yours. When I used to have some anemones they always move around. Your water parameter must be perfect. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New to WAMAS and DC

    Welcome to the club, Zac. I hope that you'll be able to join us at our next meeting (which is coming up next Saturday). Fifteen years is a good bit of experience. If you're visiting us using a regular browser, you'll see a tab near the top of the page that links to an LFS map. You can use that as a starting point to visit some of the stores near you.

    Hey Zac, welcome to WAMAS! Are you able to come to the meeting next Saturday? You'll get to meet a lot of folks, and there should be a good amount of local vendors there. We also have a very active buy/sell/trade forum. Do you have any pictures of your reef? I'm also rocking about 35 gallons total, so I can dig it! Cheers!

    Gmerek2's 240g mixed reef "48 off"

    What is it? The green part looks very similar to a slow grower I have that looks like it might turn into just this...

    Very nice! You're stating to pull the colors that you see all jazzed up by a bajillion. Hows that JD coming along?
  12. Pretty honest pic of the Jason fox home wrecker. It’s actually a pretty good grower. Bought the tiniest of all frags and it grew into this. The small frag pic is it on 3/26/2018 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hi All! My name is Zac. I just moved to the area in the last few weeks and when I saw there was a local marine aquarium society I knew I had to join (I have previously been a member of CMAS in Chicago). I have been reefing for about 15 yrs and currently have a 45 gal mixed reef (constant moving has prevented anything larger). I'm glad to be here and can't wait to explore the local reefing scene. One quick question: what is your favorite LFS for SPS? Tanks all!

    Eyepopping colored coral situation

    Something to keep in mind is that the more "common" or "popular" corals are referred to in that way because they look good enough in almost any tank capable of supporting them for people to want them. Sure the red montipora or green slimer/green millepora are common but they look darn good in virtually every tank I have ever seen them in. (Including mine) I've never actually seen a large colony of many of the crazy expensive corals that you see around today because most people frag them as soon as possible. Do a search for Walt Disney Acropora and pop over to the image search, the largest walt disney acro you'll see is at best *maybe* 3-4 inches in diameter, which by my reckoning is a really small colony. I would be interested to see what a large colony of that would look like but I've never seen anyone grow one out. And honestly all of the pictures you'll see of the walt disney are always until heavy blue light, which makes just about any coral pop. My recommendation would be to find some corals you think you may like, get your tank stable enough and able to grow them out and see what they grow into. If you don't like how they look you can likely sell a large colony for enough to purchase a new frag and try again.

    Is this really an oregon tort?

    Yep that's it on the right there. Slow grower but still doing well. This thread has been an interesting lesson in how I am just going to stop using the designer names for things. Honestly it's all a bit silly since corals look different in different tanks, I'm actually kind of surprised that the tort I got from you has still basically retained its coloration and growth pattern in my tank as my experience over the years has been that corals change color in my tank fairly significantly. I have some smaller colonies in my tank where you can still pick out the original frag piece and their new growth pattern is very different in my tank vs what they came to me as.

    That is a beautiful coral. All your corals are nice.

    I've been gone for a week. I feel like everything has grown. I'm very proud, as everything was grown from tiny frags. Took out the back rock, there are about 6 anemones on that tiny rock, they all stay put, but I need to figure out what I'm going to do back there, the old birdsnest colony was growing so fast it was shading everything. I love the GSP on the floor, but it's turning into a lot of work. I'm constantly cutting it back, or trimming it off the side glass. I also got rid of a huge colony of Jedi Mind Trick, so I'm looking for something to fill in that space. I'm thinking a Homewrecker would look nice

    Either way, it is a very pretty piece. Might have to look for an oregon tort too (I was raise in oregon). Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  24. Bump for the meeting on Saturday. One week from today! We've started posting the raffle prizes you can expect. We're still doing receipts for raffles, so you can get one raffle ticket for every $25 you've spent at a club sponsor since the last meeting.

    Actually, could that be the "hulk milli" that he used to sell? It might be. I'm sorry that I just don't remember, heh.

    Eyepopping colored coral situation

    Yeah, that makes sense. It seems all the "standard" corals look just as good as frags, as they do big pieces, or colonies, but I can definitely see that potential with dull newer eyepopping corals. This is a very disappointing realization for me:( I'll definitely ask for pictures of things without all the actinics! Thanks for the advice!

    I wonder if Tony is still setup, I got some great OG acros from him that I would like again. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
