    Break in at Cali Kid

    Just saw the news that someone broke in and stole money and lights. This sucks that they targeted you guys as you're one of the few LFS in our area. Hopefully you'll see some increase in sales as the community responds to help out.

    Aggressive Coral Banded Shrimp - Free

    I can't imagine who else would take a munch out of a fin at night. Unless it's my emerald crab. I do have 2 clowns, banghai cardinal, and a mandarin dragonnet. I have seen the shrimp take swipes during the day at the wrasse. and I know this wrasse sleeps wedged in between the rocks. Unless...

    Aggressive Coral Banded Shrimp - Free

    Looking to offload this little bastard. I believe he's responsible for at least 2 deaths of my wrasse. I haven't caught him, But today I see my McCosker's with a big chunk of his tail fin missing when he looked fine yesterday. I'm out in Antioch. So I'd like to see if anyone wants him otherwise...

    Farallon Island Trip

    Years back I did the trip with my family (forgot what organization, but they were delivering supplies for the research station). If you get sea sick, this will be tough, even with dramamine, If you are okay with that, it is beautiful and is well worth the time.

    CFM!!! Thank you to the volunteers and anyone who stopped by to chat!!!

    picked up a NY Knicks torch, some unidentified indo gold torch, some type of digi, a firework clove, and a maxima clam. First time going to CFM and didn't realize the prices would be that good. I was expecting to see 500+ torches and nothing but expensive corals with fancy names.

    Thank you

    It was an awesome event and everything you had planned went well! Even though it rained on and off it didn't hamper the event, you can control the rain right? I guess if I had to really nitpick, a covered area for the ones announcing the groupings? I felt a bit bad they were standing out there...

    PSA: heatwave and pge shutdown

    I have to thank this thread for saving my butt. When I saw this thread it made me go order a battery air pump which came in on Monday. Well last night we lost power and it had me scrambling to get that air pump up and running. Stupidly, I forgot to charge the thing. Luckily I have some power...

    Nero 3 Died Need Alternative

    So luckily, I was able to get a receipt for the Nero from the person I bought my tank from and AI is going to be replacing it for free even though it is out of warranty. I have no clue when it's going to ship or when I'll receive it (still waiting for shipping information). Now I just need a...

    Nero 3 Died Need Alternative

    I tried it, but it doesn't even spin with the front cage on. I tried lubing the spinning parts and while slightly better it stopped after 3 rotations. That would be awesome. Please let me know, if that's the case it buys me more time in getting something that may take awhile to ship.

    Nero 3 Died Need Alternative

    Thanks for the kind offer, again I'm all the way in Antioch and do work in Dublin tomorrow. So distance to travel is limited to me until the weekend. So, I'll see where I land in a day or so when I hear back from AI. Maybe I can convince my wife we to go out to tunnel tops again with the...

    Nero 3 Died Need Alternative

    Thank you for the kind offer, if you were closer to me I wouldn't hesitate. Antioch to Sunnyvale is a bit of a drive. I'm starting to lean towards the mlw-20.

    Nero 3 Died Need Alternative

    @rdriggett If only I could wait a whole month to get it. I've already had issues with the nero 3 for the last week in a half. It just finally died completely yesterday.

    Nero 3 Died Need Alternative

    Hmm, now you have me looking at the MLW-20 (closest equivalent to a nero3) or the SLW-20. SLW-20 is only $60 but wifi connectivity does spoil me. @rdriggett How do you like the pattern on the MLW's? Any experience versus a Nero?
