    Reef Expertise? Rate yourself out of 10!

    I dunno how the scale works for this, like what does 10 mean on coral growing skill? If you put the most difficult acropora in a detritus filled nitrate magnet use tap water with prime as your source of water type of tank? Or is simply means how fast you are able to grow corals? Which in...

    Blue/yellow Yuma

    If you are not the recipient I apologize was trying to piece together who got one based on the picture of the log that was sitting on the DBTC table. Two more got taken, or put in the frag swap, either way, it's cool. Glad I can keep the chain going, for someone who simply threw everything...

    6/1 Members-Only Frag Swap at Mission Blue Center

    'twas nice seen everyone again, sorry if I didn't say hi and talk personally with everyone I knew, there was a lot going on, and a ton of new faces I did not know, and it was relaxing just sitting back and not doing anything for once. Met a few new (new to me) members at the table I was at...

    Blue/yellow Yuma

    Just a heads up, if you grabbed a piece of this, make a post and someone can enter you in the chain, I think I still remember how to do that. I put 5 containers on the DBTC table, and they were all gone when I left, that or someone needed to make a pee sample :)

    Cheap way to get Alk, MG and CA supplement

    Leslie's Pool supply "Hardness Plus" for calcium is about as cheap as you're going to get probably, although mixing up a 5 gallon bucket a few times you will notice some residual "brown stuff" at the bottom, and if you listen to what those BRS guys say about contaminants then "its bad". May...

    Blue/yellow Yuma

    4 years later, these little buggers are still around, they never went bonkers as they did with Ken's tank. So I notice there's a frag swap relatively close by in Brisbane, if anyone on the list (emphasis... on the list) is going to attend I can bring them. Fair warning, the size is from...

    "The Lab" - Josh and Tiffany's IM Nuvo EXT 200

    Probably some European folks they write their dates day/month/year. So when the US side saw 05/07/2023 as the ship date they assumed 2 days but it was really 2 months :D

    power strip discussion

    I thought most power strips had cords in the 3 foot range anyways, while longer ones do exist they are not the norm. Besides isn't this about making something work for you? Strip off one end of a 25 foot extension cord and replace the 40 inch one

    7 stills' tank up for auction

    Well there's United Rentals just behind Lowes off Bayshore, there's Sunbelt Rentals that's over near Palou I think, plenty of places to rent a forklift, a quick look shows just under $300 a day for a regular one, the boom lifts are a bit more. Not sure how you get it to the tank, I assume...

    7 stills' tank up for auction

    No idea how heavy that thing is, but you can rent fork lifts so that's a thing. I'd probably strap it to the stand and use a forklift to lift the stand tank as a whole and put it on a flat bed truck, strap it down and carefully drive back. You still live on that steep hill? that part...

    San Jose Permit Variances

    Funny story when I got mine a while back the inspector came, asked the solar guys if the ladder to the side of the house (2 story box home with flat roof) was secured, they said yes he gingerly climbed up peeked over the edge of the roof said "yup those are solar panels" and came back down very...

    Standardized smart home powered tank setups

    I dunno really, I do know there is a higher failure rate for any device near an aquarium then away from one just because of the humidity involved in the hobby. I can also say with good confidence some higher end aquarium equipment (and I'll be nice and not mention names) that I've taken...

    Thoughts on Photography and Buying Corals online?

    The problem is that photos are going to naturally distort what is seen, whether it's how bright some colors to how much detail really can be seen with the naked eye. Your eye does not work the same way as a camera sensor, they could take a picture that as a sizable shutter speed (yeah even...

    Standardized smart home powered tank setups

    Honestly I think it all depends what you want your controller to do, and it gets a lot more complicated of an answer when you go from wanting to turn lights on and off into sending text message to know something is going wrong and I'm going to turn these things off to protect your investment...

    7 stills' tank up for auction

    What kind of crap is this? I did briefly see a $225 price but not sure if there were additional last minute sniping. I thought it was required by auctions to allow viewing of prices in case there are any shenanigans on the side of the seller or auctioneer
