  1. Couple of stick picks. Tanks finally starting to work with me a bit. Hope these guys take off Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. As most of you know I was deep into a build about 8 months ago. After filling the tank and it running for 2 weeks one of the worst days in my reefing history happened. A crack from the top middle all the way to bottom right corner. Luckily I was home and got the water out without any damage. I ended up buying a reefer 170 to get me thru while I figured out what I wanted for the next tank. Luckily a buddy of mine found out he was moving and gave me a deal on his tank. So here it is. My new to me Red Sea Reefer 525XL Now remember I had all the equipment before hand for this size tank so the build went pretty quick. I used the same rock, sand, return pump, skimmer, circulating pump and light fixture. Return pump: Reef Octopus VarioS 6 Skimmer: Vertex 180i Circulating pumps: 2 MP-40’s Light Fixture: Pacific Sun Diuna T5 8x54 And what you all been waiting for Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dang. Had a horrible time trying to get a pic. First tried with a clear ruler. That failed miserably. Had to bust out the tape measure. Little less then 3/4”

  10. It’s finally official. The Board has been working hard to come up with the perfect SPS Grow Out.

    2018 Bay Area Store Tour

    WOW, what a trip. Had an awesome time with the NVR crew. The bay never disappoints. Wanted to thank all members that where able to make it and showing the support to our sponsors. We started our day at Diablo Corals. Jess provided us with our SPS grow out. Which bye the way is 🔥🔥🔥. If you didn’t join you missed out. Jess definitely stepped his game up at his new store. If you haven’t been their you should check it out. Second stop was California Reef Co. I personally have not been to this store in a while. But Anthony and Matt did not disappoint. I think we all took part in the buy 3 get one free deal. Had a huge selection of SPS fragged and ready to go. I definitely will be back for some sticks. Third stop was Neptunes. Robert and crew did an awesome job at their new location. And as always it was a fight at the $10 and $20 sps tank. Love the knowledge we get from Robert every time the club comes bye. From. His display tanks at the front to the fish wall in the back he had ya amazed. Definitely a must stop if your in the area. Last stop was Clear Water Aquarium. Ed is working hard getting his store established. And he’s doing a hella of a job. Tons of high end shrooms, awesome deals on coral and fish. Plus Ed is really down to earth and easy to talk to. Really makes you feel a home. If you haven’t made it out their you should. I think we need to get back to the twice a year store tours to both Sac and the Bay. I had a great time. Hope everyone else did. Couple of pics we took at each stop. If you took more pics please post in the comments. — with Don Giovannoni and 6 others.

    It is the first time we are starting this early. Just hard fitting all the stores into one day. I did verify with Jess at Diablo. He will be open for us.

    I think they will be fine. I’ve done a ton of these store tours and never had an issue. Just make sure to bring something like a insulated lunch box to keep the water as close to tank temp as possible. And acclimate extra long when adding to your tank at home.

  21. Came across a used Aqua UV 25W and added it to the tank this weekend. Let’s see how this does. Never ran a UV before. Just temped it up while I get my plumbing figured out.
