    Listen up Buckeye Reef! Thank you!

    I was thinking today and I realized how grateful I am for such a great group of people. To show my gratitude I want to offer all Buckeye Reef members 15%off any of my reef trader listings still available. Supporting members get 20%off anything left on reef trader. Just a heads up there's still an apex available. Now if there is anyone still reading I made 50 frags today. They are all pieces of my old frag rack that I replaced today and all have between 2 and 40 zoas and/or palys on them. For every supporting member that comes and says hi you get a free one and any more you want for a "buk" a piece. Any standard members that want in can get them for a "buk" just to cover cost of plugs, glue, and cups. I'll also have some pretty generous sized montis with me for sale. Nothing over $15. Come say hi and introduce yourself. THANKS BUCKEYE REEF.

    Thanks to Everyone!

    We've now donated $12,169 to Mote. You guys should all pat yourselves on the back for this. Just think about the work being done to restore reefs, and help injured animals from the ocean because of this great group. I myself couldn't be prouder to be a part of it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Thanks for putting on the event, it gets better every year. Due to work this year I wasn't able to get there until 4 but I was still able to pick up some great sticks! I know it takes a lot of work to put on an event like this so thanks again guys! Looking forward to the BuckeyeReef August Expo and Frag Swap! (Hint Hint)

    @Joe, I'm not sure if I met you tonight or not, but I share the same sentiment. This was a really fun time, and it was run smooth as silk! I definitely met @Jesse (twice) - thank you for the BR t-shirt, I'm excited to advertise for this group! Thank you to everyone I met today for making a reef nerd and his wife feel welcome!

    Looks like it to me and would make the most sense. The first time you have a shrimp molt stuck to your powerhead you are going to swear you lost the shrimp too. Just one of the many super cool things that go on in our tanks!

    I picked up more than I expected to. I originally wasn’t going to get any coral. But...... I got a purple torch, blood red shrimp, big feather duster, nice big piece of gsp that I glued to the back of the tank thanks @jeff70. Also got some snail and a frag of scrambled eggs Zoas.

    New reefer here.

    Hi everyone, I'm Aaron. Mechanical engineer from the Tipp City area. First salt tank after years of fresh water. Tank is a few weeks old and going very well for all the anxiousness I've had about it. 32g LED Biocube. Have a few softies (zoa's) and just decided to grab a small piece of Duncan. Have a few snails, a porcelain crab and a Molly (who will need to be rehomed soon as I didn't actually need it but was scared to not try a cheap cycle friend) so far with plans on a mated clown pair, sand sifting goby and eventually a Mandarin. Also building an automated phyto/copepod farm as well. Thanks for having me and I look forward to making some local friends!

    Heading to the airport soon and I just tossed a couple of these in my bag. Let's see who the lucky ones will be who sit in for my presentation and walk away with some LRS swag?! See you guys soon!

    This is the first time that I have used ReefTrader, and I am glad that I did. I found seven SPS frags that caught my eyes. The 2.25-hour drive is more than worth it. I am able to purchase that many frags for less than the price of one of them at a well-known coral shop, before shipping.

    Plywood Tank Anyone?

    Eh, trying to logistically figure out how to build it. The size I want to build won't fit down my basement steps, so I'd have to build it in place. That would require me tearing down my existing tank and putting the livestock in a temporary holding tank until the new one is built. Then arises the issue of semi-cycling the new tank with the love rock from the old along with new. It just sounds like a headache lol. I think it may be easier to just add an addition to my house so that I can just have ANOTHER tank...lol. So, to your answer question, I'm not sure it'll ever happen anytime soon. But man, the idea of 400g tank sure is persuading... Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Just a quick update a little over a month in. The cleanup crew is doing well and has the tank cleaned up real nice. No sign of the diatoms anymore and the rockwork is looking pretty again. I still haven’t added any fish but I have been feeding mysys to the tank still. Hopefully I can make the time to grab the fish soon but until then, clean tank picture.

    Excited to meet you guys and pick up all my new stuff tomorrow (and probably get more, lol). What time do the doors open for people who can't make it for the speaker? I see some conflicting times.

    ID Help please.

    I agree with fraggenstien on galaxea coral. I got one a year ago as a very small frag that was dead around the edges and it bounced back from only a few polyps like yours. It became quite large before I decided to trade it to a fellow member not too long ago. Looks like this once it grows out.

    Wardi tiger goby MIA

    I’ve had the same thing happen with the same fish. Disappeared for days and then resurfaced, found out he made a den in the back of the tank under a rock where he couldn’t be seen. Had it happen to a small zebra moray too, gone for 6 weeks, bought another one and then it reappeared, so now I’m stuck with 2 zebras till I can catch one.
