Hi Bay Area Reefers! My name is Brian and I have been living and reefing in Oregon for the past 4 years while going to college. Now that college is done I have moved back to Walnut Creek (Where I am from originally). Unfortunately, despite having plans in place to move my display tank to California a week before my move it crashed and I lost 100% of my fish, 100 % SPS, 50% LPS, and 20% Softies. So if you're in the area and are selling frags or willing to cut frags let me know! Basically looking for any type of SPS and some LPS stuff like torches. Anyway let me show you what kind of tanks I had in Oregon: 70G DIY Seahorse Tank: What got me into saltwater originally was a tank I custom built 3 years ago. I ripped out a coat closet during a home remodel I was working on during college and in its place, I build a custom 36x20x20 custom aquarium. At first, I wasn't sure what to do with it and it was a planted freshwater but eventually, I decided I was going to give saltwater a try and try and keep some seahorses. I changed it over and got 6 seahorses from Oceanrider. All in all, Seahorses were super fun and a great way to start out in saltwater. During this time I also had a 55G freshwater discuss tank, but as Saltwater grew on me I decided I was going to tear down the discuss tank and convert 100% to saltwater.

So I ended up purchasing a 75G from Petco for the display and a 40G for the sump and building my first reef tank. https://imgur.com/gallery/qF6tFx8 Unfortunately, as I mentioned above this tank crashed. The short story is, it ran out of the water. I ended up flying to Alaska to work on a family project initially I intended to be gone for 2 to 3 weeks. However I ended up spending extra time in Alaska and then on top of that, I ended up flying straight to the bay area for a couple of job interviews. By the time I got back to Oregon It had been 4 weeks and my Auto top off Reservoir was bone dry. Looks like it came down to 2 or 3 days which is why I was able to save half my LPS and most of my softies. I may end up selling this display, for the time being, haven't made up my mind yet. 50G DIY Frag Tank: I had planned this build before my reef tank crashed but ended up expediting it a bit because of it. I purchased a 50G Zoomed lowboy from Concord aquarium and set up a new frag tank where I will rehabilitate the corals that were salvaged and rebuild my coral collection before I set up my display tank again. Will probably set up a new display tank once I am settled in by the end of this year. https://imgur.com/gallery/Qa1DAjC Anyway glad to be back in the Bay Area. Let me know if you're in the area and have some inexpensive frags you're wanting to sell! And what are the best reef stores in the Bay for corals and fish? Thanks for reading!
