Hey, is anyone alive here? Does anyone even have a tank? I swear, you're all a bunch of zombies! WAKE UP!

Activity always goes down in the summer and picks up again in the Fall.  There are still some people around, though.
Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.

Brains!   BRAINS!   ;D

Been so busy I haven't been on much, but as Ed said, always lurking in the background.  I have the RSS feed on my igoogle page, so I see any new post that comes along.

I was reminded of two things that kill corals!!  Two things that are invisible to eye.   Calcium good, Alk good, Mag good, Stontium good,Boron good, what things do we overlook when we tend to look for other things?

hint two guys having identical aquariums:
come over and see..:)

That's a bit disheartening... I see so many empties up on Craigslist these days. Maybe we just need more choices!? It's sad when Petco is our best option! Aquatropics doesn't have anything these days (and when they do, I can't even come close to being able to afford the prices, ugh), and so few people have tanks that it's nearly impossible to trade with anyone, at least those we find on the board.

I have made a few friends with tanks, but by and large, there's so little going on that they just keep to themselves.  :'(

I am currently exuding disappointment, if you can't tell.

You must be a ducky Beau (I'm thinking of the movie where they said that line)  We don't have  a tank but as of yet but we still manage to keep in touch.

I haven't heard where the next meeting is going to be so if someone can let me know, I will get it posted.

More info coming soon.
In the works on a 120 GL.

I have removed william's post and am sending a notice to let him know he's had his 1 warning.  If he posts this type of uncalled for inflamitory remark again, his account will be disabled.

It has nothing to do with not being able to handle "the truth" as you say, and everything to do with a ZERO tolerance for antagonistic posts. Especially from someone that has never been a paying member of the club. We have been polite and asked nicely, explaining why we deleted the post. Please don't push any further if you wish to continue being able to post on this board.
