Wow it's been 9 months since I started the hobby. Thanks to everyone who helped and gave advice.
My tank started out BB with PC lighting, pro clear skimmer and a bio ball wet/dry.
Now after 9 months:
500W MH lighting
SSB (for looks)
I started adding SPS about 5-6...
Good Morning Everyone!:wavey:
Back to work for me after 11 days off. Hopefully the drive isn't too bad. They shut down one of the major highways here for a complete makeover. Suppose to be closed for the next year. Not one I normally travel but the traffic from there will likely move my way:(
I know its a ways away but I would like to host the January Meeting.
January 27 Which is a Sunday. That is about the only day I can do it since we have baby showers to attend and the baby is due Valentines days so I would like to get it done because I won't have much time after that. Who is In...
Well, I've had a "BB" tank for 2 years now, but it's only in the past month that I actually had a real BB tank. That is because (i feel) I had too much rock, poor flow patterns, and def. not enough fish, or skimming.
Here was my tank at it's...
I have 3 Blue Tort frags/colonies. The parent colony is completely blue. Mine have blue tips, but have not colored up any more than that. They range from 2" to almost 5". The tank has been up and running for about 10 months. My lighting is 3 - 250 watt MH pendants running 2 - 10k XM and 1 -...

I have accepted a new career in southwest Ohio. If nothing happens I will be selling all my coral and fish soon. I have mostly acros and most of those are frags. If you are interested PM me and we wll arrange a visit to view them. As of right now I have no hardware for sell.
So, what did you all think of the conference and swap?
I had a great time. Met a lot of nice people. Learned some new things. Spent way to much money. But, all in all, it was a very worthy trip and I'm going to plan on going again next year.
P.S. I bought a piece of the blue and red acan...
I have a mental list that I keep when I am out at LFS. Something I really want predefined, so that I don't buy just anything that appeals to me in the store.
Right now, here is my list:
-Some kind of *****in' Fangblenny
-An unusual Wrasse, kinda like Lowman's Leopard
-A Flameback Angel...
I just saw Mafiaman's Reef aquarium, and all i can say is that He is THE REEF GOD. Everybody should just bend over and give the honor to THE REEF GOD.
Thank you for everything again and keep up the good work.

Here is a huge...

It's the time of year when most folks are focused on giving, but not just those in shiny paper decorated with a bow.
This month is a great time to donate all unwanted fish or non-fish related items that are taking up space in your closets, basements, garage or fishroom ( if you should be so...

About two and a half weeks ago I got two little ricordias from Jerry. I brought them home, and not having any superglue, set them in the tank and thought I would run out to the Holiday store and get some glue. No more then 10 seconds after setting them on a rock, the little suckers flew right...
