  1. I've ran both and would run the 6095 over the older Mp40's but the quiet drives are nice. I run one Gyre and one MP40 QD on a 120 and it's good. But, I'm going to replace the gyre and just go with 2 QD's. Good luck, flow is always the element that is the toughest to get down depending on livestock. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk

    Huh, odd. We talked about your role, where you hosted meetings and the NVR frag swap and NVR being the oldest club arround. You shared you were in real estate and would offer coral for help with referals. To be honest, I had the impression you had been the president of NVR for quiet some time. I could have misunderstood everything though, anything is possible.

    We have already apologized and clarified that these experiences are not what we are about. We really had no choice to keep the relationships going.

    Im just sharing the feedback and overall feeling I recieved. I do believe the gift card was given to the club then spent by the same member, therefore having the sponsor feel taken advantage of. Thats thier point of view, not mine. I recently won a gift card during our BBQ and traded it to another reefer as I was too concerned to spend it being a member of the current BOD, and the club paid for it. Again, Im just sharing my experiences. Its all about impression and presenting the club in the right manor. Ive seen issues arise in clubs where BOD members win raffles they host, including grand prizes.

    There is another point I feel is important to share. Ive been in the hobby for over a decate in the sacramento area and have had long healty relationships with many of our sponsors. When I joined NVR as a BOD member this past year and made my routine visits to purchase corals or fish, converstaions would arise about my involvement with NVR in which I was excited about. Unfortunatly, the converstaions were painful with stories of the clubs past BOD members utilizing NVR for personal gain. From the club asking for large donated gift cards for raffles only to show up later and utilizing it them selfs, mind you this was donated and not bought. To a BOD member registering NVR in a raffle intended for retailers at RAP for a Hawaiin vacation and winning. A vacation that was intended for retailers as a thank you. Its not hard understand why RAP does not allow club booths now. I wont share what sponsors this came from as I value those relathionships, NVR and this hobby as a whole. Its just sad others havent.

    2018 Board Nominations

    Im still in if nominated.
  25. As promised, here is my reboot/build 120g system. About 4 years ago we bought our Galt home, moving from Sacramento, and brought my 30x30x30 cube which was 117g and overall a good system. It did not fit the space in the new home correctly and overtime I realized the tank on stand was much taller than I liked. So, a fellow reefer in Stockton had posted a new 120g with standard 4x2x2 measurements for sale. After contacting him, an offer of 2 JB babies brought the tank to my home and my build started. This was supposed to be a simple build in which I utilized most everything from my previous setup but we all know how that goes. The unit was previously drilled on the bottom pane for a corner overflow. I knew that was not going to fly and put some thought into the best way to patch it as I was going to drill this bad boy. It's euro braced in which I like for multiple reasons and clean as a whistle with a large black, glass trim. I had a euro braced cube with no trim and the trim covers the bracing from being viewed from the sides and the way to go.
