    Your Reef's blasto grow out tracking thread

    I want to thank Will for baby sitting my frag the last few months since I moved and had to break down my tank. Funny thing is the blasto has stayed in the same tank, just moved to different houses. I've never had a blasto in my tank before this growout. I had crazy good growth following these rough guidelines. Keeping the blasto medium to low light and pretty low flow. Feeding the blasto every few days these pellets. By putting the frag on a rack and shutting off all flow in tank for 20 minutes. Keeping sand off the blasto and corals from stinging it. Also in general, keeping a dirty tank with lots of fish. Nothing crazy, but it worked well. Hope to get a new build going soon!

    Members Attention Needed

    Just to be clear the BAD decisions made by a few previous bod members have seriously affected the club. Its dissapointing and we are in a difficult position because of it. Deciding to sign a non profit up for a retail account at a wholesaler was a horrible decision. The club could lose its non profit status under this and that is probably the end of the club. Lets just all agree on the obvious, it was done to benefit a few members buying a lot of stuff at whoesale prices without having their own businesses. Yes, a few purchases are made for the frag swap to jusity having a whoesale account. The whole idea that this place made NVR open an account to get a donation dosen't even make sence. It was BAD decision. Winning the trip to Hawaii by somehow posing as a paid booth vendor ruined all clubs from being allowed to participate in rap and max. Those are huge fundraisers for the club. Selling frag donations at those events pulled in thousands of dollars. Those major fundraisers are now gone for us and all the other clubs. If we could somehow apologize and pay the people that run those shows back for the trip so they could actually give it to someone who deserves it, that would be the right thing. Sadly, we don't have enough money as a club to this and so much time has passed that the damage is already done. Most bod leave the club in good standing with stores and sponsors. The new bod have had to deal with a lot of anger and negative views about NVR due to the above actions. I'm talking about a majority of our store sponsors. Its crazy. Its been quite an uphill battle. I've heard about other questionable actions as well, but these are the ones verified by multiple sources that we have solid evidence on. Where we are now is basically having to rebuild club from ground up, but even worse because of the bad taste people have with NVR now. It sucks. Sadly, I don't see how we get around not banning people in some form for these actions.

    Members Input Needed

    I'm not sure if we have enough active members to volunteer to help out at a frag swap. Let alone attend one. We probably need 5 non bod volunters and at least 50 people to show up for a frag swap. Thats probably to break even if we have to rent a venue. We could always just do a frag swap at a normal meeting for fun. It would be easy enough to do if we only have 10-15 people show up. Wouldn't cost much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    MisterReefer's Not So New 29g Biocube

    They won't last. They are mainly used as food for the tank. Not long term breeding pods. I would recommmed to order a mixture of pods from algae barn. They have several differnt types of pods that can seed tank and reproduce. Pods eat junk/ rotting stuff in tank or phyto. If you have some live rock in the sump that will provide them with a place to safely reproduce without predation. Lots of common reef hobby fish eat pods. They can clean them out fast in a tank.
