    Hi and welcome! Your tank is looking great.

    I’m in the Northgate area of Walnut Creek, great to have another reefing neighbor.

    You can have some chaeto for free from me if you want, I’m always pruning it out anyway. Just PM me if you want to swing by and get it.

    Thanks to the both of you, I really appreciate the offers! I unfortunately won't be in the area this weekend for the swap, I'm out on business. I'd greatly appreciate the trimmings you have! I'll drop you a PM and coordinate with whatever time is convenient for you!

    Thanks again!

    Welcome! Some nice colors in your tank already! What camera/filter do you use to capture the colors so well?

    Hi and thanks! I actually just set feed mode on the apex and set the AI Prime to All On, no filters. I thought of messing with a few but the colors looked way too warped.

    Thanks again for the chaeto! I really appreciate it. It’s in the reactor now and looking great!

    I just snuck up on him while the lights were out, here’s one I managed to get of him.
