  1. Not the ending I expected...even for a Paul story. Love it. Bummer about the skimmer. Whatever survives will be well fed. Hopefully you have some good oxygenation while it clears as that is what usually kills the fish.
  2. Funny. The link is to That Fish Place/That Pet Place in Lancaster. I went to college near there and actually stopped in on my wedding day...wife in the passenger seat, to check for a piece of plumbing (3/4" locline flare...obviously). My rebuttal to all the fish bros who say their ladies will never get it.
  3. Your reef is looking good. Nicely filled in. Love the gorgs.
  4. Could nightcrawlers work instead of white worms? Just chop one up into like 1/4-1/2" pieces and dump it in?
  5. How do you do your steel wool "fireworks"?
  6. you might call john at blue ribbon koi. they specialize in ponds and saltwater. and dabbled in freshwater for at least a while. i assume the pool sand is a filter media likely also used in koi ponds since large koi ponds use similar filtration setups to pools...
  7. never seen someone with a candy basslet. let's see a.pic of that! glws
  8. Purple Torch looks exactly like that. Except I'm not sure ive seen a "wall" style purple torch, just branching.
  9. Interesting history of public aquaria with a lens of conservation. Not all points are well-defended, but I found it an informative read. https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2019/04/new-aquariums-struggle-to-succeed/587938/
  10. Thats such a boring non-PaulB fish. That money must be burning a hole in yoyr pocket. What was the coral?
  11. No! Everyone stop with the advice. OP just.wants to rant... You made the right decision.
  12. Interesting...Hard to see what's going on in the pic
  13. Anyone else feel like we have too many pinned threads in the general discussion? Seems odd to have to scroll half way down the page on my phone every time to see the new content. Many are 5+ years old and have several pages of posts for a few good nuggets of reference material (that are discoverable via a topical search).
  14. I used to buy the 1 foot squares of tavertine because they were essentially 144 1 inch squares or 36 2" squares for $15. And they had some color to them. Leave them sit in a bucket of water with a heater for a few days and the glue comes right off. The squares are thick and heavy which was nice for taller frags.
  15. So are you still pursuing this? The dates on the pics are all from ~5+ yrs ago. Kinda confused on the storyline. You mention not good roi...was that more at first or now too? Seems like you are rescuing pretty rough stuff. Do you just offer to take them from stores with any purchase or offer $5 or something? For every one of these successes in 2013 were there 25 losses? Is it 10:1 now? Saving any one of those corals is worth celebrating. And your tips make a lot of sense. Trying to understand the broader context/journey. Thanks.
