    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

    Well that sucks, especially after specifying that it's up to the purchaser to move said tank.

    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

    power strip discussion

    "Aquarium tax" or "there's a picture of a fish on it so of course it costs more", has been around way back when I got into the hobby and I'm sure even well beyond that as well. Honestly other than the "box of water with pretty" that was one part of the hobby that I enjoyed the most, not the...

    7 stills' tank up for auction

    Yeah this would be tempting (especially for the current bid price of $100!!!!) if it wasn't for the fact I am deathly afraid of the direction PG&E rates are going and combine that with the "usage punishments" (aka baseline quantities that not many other electrical companies use) or the "ToU...

    San Jose Permit Variances

    Personally I would not worry about it, I know there is the idea that anytime you need a permit everything must be brought up to code (which FYI isn't quite true), but the reality is no inspector is going to check things outside of their scope (most likely), they'll check certain electrical...

    Giveaway time!!! 50 gallon glass tank

    Are you kidding me? Is that all it took to get rid of this thing? I mean it's not like I was using the square of space the tank was sitting on, but still... the principle of the matter

    Lucky Ocean @ Balboa Closing

    Wow 20 years of him getting out of the business and the person who really forces his hand is the landlord wanting him out, so sad. I doubt he'll open another though, he's wanted out for a while but kept in because well being your own boss usually doesn't set you up with a good retirement plan.

    SF house explosion

    A friend of my wife actually lives across the street from this place and was home when it went kaboom. She said her windows were fine but the explosion blew her front door off it's hinges and blew in her garage door. And that is why we make aquariums out of glass and not wood! :D
