    Pro tips for bottle trapping: Use a mag float instead of a string. Put the wet-side in your bottle, the dry side on the outside of the glass. This has a couple advantages - you can place the bottle at the best height in the water column for your fish (and ideally up off the sand where the serpents can't get it as easy), and instead of using a string to pull the bottle, when your fish swims in, just rotate the dry side magnet, which in-turn rotates the wet-side magnet, and the whole bottle rotates as well. Then simply use the magnet to slide the bottle up to the surface of your aquarium and the fish is trapped. It was actually trapped as soon as the mouth of the bottle was turned up toward the water surface as most fish won't flee upward, but once they're at the surface the only way for them to get out is to go airborne and that just doesn't happen. Place the bottle in your tank for 3-4 days without adding food to it. The fish will likely need to acclimate to it being there before they will get anywhere near it. So baiting for the first few days is a waste of time, food, and potential unnecessary nutrient in your tank. After 3-4 days bait the trap and watch the fish swim in. I usually fast my fish for the waiting period as well, so they're nice and hungry when I finally do bait. I catch fish like this all the time. Some are more aggressive and easier to catch, and will need temporarily removed (placed in a bucket or whatever) so they stay out of the way and the more shy fish you're after has time to get in the bottle. The only fish I've ever not been able to get at using this method was one that wouldn't eat any of my prepared foods, and was surviving solely on my coral smorgasbord. One day I'll make a video. I feel like this is the hundredth time I've typed this out and I know it'd be way easier to see it in action. It's so easy, it pains me to hear of people struggling with it.

    Just because I almost never ever remember to post on Fridays, here’s a shot from yesterday. This was after about 3 hours of cleaning up and water change. Haven’t done jack with the tank in a few months, it was long overdue.

    My new tank!

    I need to change my RO/DI filters, and wipe the dust out of the tank, then I’ll be ready for water! Getting close! You may or may not have noticed I put my probe holder back in. It was in the way where it was and I thought I’d get a Neptune holder. Looking at it though I was able to salvage the original for free and put it in a better spot.

    Didn't you read the rules? They are hidden in a random page stating you must have a tank to win. It's hidden in a random page in the thread. I swear it's there....

    Than is an excellent idea and he's close. @ joe knows I'm a big Bob Fenner fan and he would draw people in Joe the king of DIY would give it some international flavor any of the people cutting edges in breeding would be cool too

    Veterans Day Thank You!

    I know it's become trendy, or according to some politically incorrect, to thank a vet these days. As a guy who's eyes swell with gratitude every time he hears the national anthem for both the fallen, and the sacrifices made buy those that return, along with the families of both, Thank You! Nothing we do, none of he freedoms we enjoy, would be possible without you.

    Proper return flow plumbing size

    You make drains same height as the overflow box height will determine water height, I have my box as high as I could put it "touching the middle brace", I didn't get/use a lid as there's no need Sent from my VS995 using Tapatalk

    Tables and chairs in the hall for people selling off reef trader is perfect. Usually people tell everyone where they will be ahead of time anyways. I cant wait for this years, it was the best swap around last year! I'll be needing a hobbiest table this year though!

    Just my opinion, I think that the raffle "stage" was way to big last time. I think you guys should have some open tables for people to sit at or bring coolers that are selling from reeftrader. Last years swap was great but again maybe a smaller center stage to open up some room for more tables.
