  1. Craigslist. Also, I don't think you have to pay for some of those, but I don't know for sure. Short answer is no, WAMAS is not the place for it, although there is the freecycle section, in which if you're giving them away, and you're a paying member, would probably fly.
  2. I've actually started growing out the zoanthids in the frag tank, which is also pretty much full. The zoas in some areas are starting to cover up the base of the SPS as it encrusts. I'm finding the zoanthids to be harder to control than the acro's. I've started putting zoas on the floor, and most of them are taking off already, and competing with the coraline now. I'm at the stage now that if I want to add more acros, I'll have to swap something out for space.
  3. Thanks! There is about equal ratio of corals, for now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Arlington has GRIST and DC has DC Hombrewers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. What Eric said, you can look at members tanks in person and make some educated decisions. Cheaper doesn’t always mean replacement more often, in fact, I’ve had the opposite experience, but that’s just me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve seen some awesome tanks on the 247’s, black box LEDs. You don’t need to compromise quality for price here imo. However, kessil and radions will come with clean (and outrageously overpriced) mounting options. I’m running a custom built LED from@alanm and at the end of the day, it’s strong light, it grows things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thank ya, sir. It certainly has grown, a little slower than I like, but probably for the best. Especially since I don’t have enough room for et in there right now!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The only adjustments/extras I went with were the Grainjacket (which honestly does a better job of keeping me from burning my shins then it does insulation). Sounds like you're halfway to running a production brew house, lol. I do not entertain much, and find most of my stuff gets consumed by yours truly, or growlers I fill up for parties or when I go to friends houses. I do still try and brew x2 a month. What does cold side look like for you? *Edit* Just looked over your blueprints and saw you had a glycol system, get outta here! Stainless conical, or are you using carboys? There's a few of us, and some perfume makers as well *wink wink* You're always welcome!
  10. Wouldn't it make sense just to grab a smaller pump?
  11. Just my 2 cents, but don’t expect to make any money on it. The most valuable thing you probably have in the pictures is the co2 tank. I wouldn’t buy a used regulator/all other parts, but again, that’s my opinion.
  12. I have been doing a TON of traveling over the past 2 weeks, so the tank has not seen a lot of love. Luckily, now that I'm back, everything looks better off without me. My dKH consumption continue to rise, have jumped from 5ml to almost 20ml over the past month. Additionally, it took a while, but the extra addition of the MP10 on the front side of the peninsula has remedied my polyp extension woes. Just about every single SPS now has very happy extending polyps during the day and night. The pictures don't really capture the awesomeness of the tank, I am going to see if I can buy a nice macro lens and get some closer photos, until then, you'll just have to make do with FTS's.
  13. We're off topic now! Nice to have another home brewer. I agree the science does cross over in both hobbies! I had an old 10gallon system that simply took up too much space, so I recently switched over to an all in one Grainfather. It's revolutionized space for me, and I'm a little upset that they just released the 70L one last week. This is my home built keezer next to my frag tank: keezer I'm traveling so much lately that I don't have time to drink all the beer I make, and that's not including the beer fridge on the side for all the cans/bottles. My house beer is a Cream Ale, and I usually keep a Gose on tap, probably my favorite style. I have 10 gallons of mead mellowing out from a year and a half ago, and keep a line dedicated for kombucha or cold brew. My next addition will be a nitro tap off the side. I just returned from Denver last week from the Craft Brewers Convention, which was oddly familiar after being there for MACNA in 2014.
  14. Looks better, IMO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
