Back again!
« on: November 03, 2015, 06:50:48 AM »
Hi everyone!  I was a part of this forum about 4 years ago and then my tank crashed and I didn't have the heart to get it going again until just recently. I have a 75g with a 40g breeder sump/refugium.  My tank just finished cycling and I have my first fish in QT.  I was going to go FOWLR, but I just recently won a Neptune DOS & DDR, so looks like I'm going to step up my game and get some corals sooner than I planned.  I need to get and Apex controller and I will be ready to go! I'm hoping to connect with some local reefers.  Is the club still having meetings?  If so, I would love to join in!

Thank you, that would be so nice! I don't have anything to share yet, but hopefully I will in time. Do you know if there are very many people still in the club, I would love to join? Do you have pictures of your tank? I would love to see it? I'm going to start a thread and post what I have so far!  Which is not much!!!

I have 3 Halloween hermits, a Pom Pom crab, snails, zebra hermits, micro stars, Asterina stars, pods & various worms!  I have two purple Firefish in QT right now.  I should be able to add them to my tank in about 2 weeks!  Kind of bare bones right now!

It looks great I like the rock work and what I would do is put some mushrooms and zoas and a rose bubble anemone with some clowns and I would add some purple tech by Kent Marine and that should start your coralline algae. And also if you have a refuguim I would add some chetomorpha and flame macro algae. Then add some phytoplankton to get your copepods going but I Like your system and when its ready in a couple months for lps and sps  I'll frag you some.

Thank you and the frags would be awesome!  I have a 40g breeder with about a 12g refugium.  I have Chaeto in there, but no flame macro (not quite sure what that is) and I added phyto when I added my pods. Glad I'm doing things right.  I added some plates with coralline on it, but I think I will also try the purple tech.  Can we get that locally or does it need to be ordered online? Thanks!!!

Here's a picture of my sump.  This was from 4yrs ago, everything looks pretty much the same now except for the rock, It's like the rock in the DT!

Sounds good, thank you!  I'm sure I will have some questions.  By the way, I'm assuming your first name is Josh?

LOL, I wouldn't have figured that out!  I'm going to Seattle this weekend and I'm going to some SW stores.  I'm hoping to get some Zoa's & mushrooms!
