    Featured Holiday Potluck, Rich Ross talk, mini frag swap, 12/7

    I'm 75% likely, will trade frags for a ride assuming I have something in decent shape (or an IOU for when things color back up) if someone has a spot available.

    Need tips on fragging.

    Wear safety glasses so when you spray a chunk of gritty tank water at your eye you won't have to rinse it out. You didn't mention fragging anything where it would matter but any time I hear of a novice fragger I mention this: palytoxin is real. Be educated and be safe. Clean out the bandsaw...

    Mike's 200 & 40 gallon tanks

    Secure the dry side cord from above and they'll stop walking/tilting. Doesn't take much, just enough to discourage them a bit. This at least used to be in the mounting directions as well, although I find that a lot of people get away without it.

    ReefBot water tester Review

    The only one that comes to mind is Mindstream, but it still needs discs. Even dissolved O2 probes require frequent membrane replacement.

    I'll deal if the third in the back seat will too. I'm pretty skinny, and Alex is thinner than I am.

    Is this worth $800 ?

    Having recently gone the fire sale route on a bigger pile of coral than this here's how I see it. Note I'm still on DFW pricing, and I'm assuming you don't actually intend to keep most of the things here. Live rock - $40, maybe $60 if you need it live, need it now, and can be 100% convinced...

    I love automation :)

    All that said, the approach is ok, the screen seems an unnecessary cost, and only 7 cubes is disappointing.

    I love automation :)

    True. Some of us end up traveling a lot for work and don’t want to change the feeding routine every 4th week. Probably not for me, but it isn’t as if all the pellet feeders out there are cheap either.

    Nudibranchs for a good home

    The one time I used berghia to get aiptasia out of an AIO I just set the water level really high so the rear chambers were flooded and smoother than usual. That was enough for them to get around and do their thing. I would also consider draining the back and using something chemical to kill...

    How many gallons does our club have?

    We're a bit shy of 5600 currently if I did it right.

    How many gallons does our club have?

    In an effort to simplify this I've put together a public Google Sheet here. It will auto total if people enter their values. I'll enter the ones already in this thread. In the same sheet I think it would be interesting to have a master list of corals in the club. I'll start one of those for...

    Cheap fast local Co2 refill??

    Be prepared for an extra charge if it’s more than 5 years old.

    We should give them some time to respond, it could well be an easy fix.

    ReefBot water tester Review

    This is an ugly hack, but what about putting a beefier peristaltic pump like the 50 mL/min BRS pumps drawing from the waste container? Run it for X seconds (or minutes) per day to a larger waste container/drain of your choice. It won't mind sucking air, so just set it to run longer than...

    The long term short term - 170

    Here is an example, pardon the unfiltered blue. The tip on this particular stag does actually grow, but it's been encrusting quite a bit at the base as well. I had another frag, and not having any plans for it I broke it up and glued it around the base of this piece. My hope is that they'll...

    The long term short term - 170

    Unrelated: I started typing this thread somewhere, apparently closed the tab without submitting, and was mildly annoyed that I would need to re-type this post. I pulled my thread up, scrolled down to reply...and there's my (short) post waiting to be submitted already in the reply box. Kudos to...

    See the Randy Holmes Farley post here. In case the link ever dies: "The best way to measure limewater saturation is by conductivity. Saturated solutions have a conductivity around 10.3 mS/cm at 25 deg C. pH is a poor man's way, and can give a rough guide to the saturation. "

    It's funny, I've seen some probes/systems where the salinity reading is rock solid yet others where it either looks solid but is actually on a several month long drift, or where it jumps around a ton through the day, but seems to hold long term, and everything in between. I've also gotten a...
