  1. Long time, no update. Been a pretty hectic year. Bought my first home, closed back in April, had the joy of moving the tank in June, and this is how things are looking today. If any wants a massive piece of Hollywood stunner chalice, it's all yours. It has outgrown my tank and I would prefer to rehome it possible.
  2. I will say that yeah...sometimes I look an think stores are more expensive. Then as @Waffen06said, you consider their over head, etc. Versus online retailers who sell much more volume. Also, supply and demand definitely play a part and whatever has the hype (torches, goni, shrooms, etc) will end up with a price that reflects its. Still I think its good to support local when/where you can but online just adds convenience. When it comes to live stock at stores, I always ask myself "can I order this coral(s) online for less? Sure but then you factor in shipping and having to be available to accept the delivery. So if it's one or two pieces its kind of a wash. Fish wise...I don't have a quarantine so I'm selective and only buy fish from one store due to their quarantine process and stocking many captive breed clean fish. Do I pay more, of course but its worth it to me. Lastly, I definitely look to support hobbyists as well. Quality individuals out there with quality pieces and service. I've recieved shipments from hobbyists that are packaged better than online retailers.
  3. PM sent. Hoping you still have some available.
  4. Thanks. I am happy with how things are coming along. Everything is pretty stable but running low on nutrients so I slowly working to try and get that up to where my nitrates are detectable. Everything seems happy so thats a good thing. At the point of monitoring and enjoying. as things grow out.
  5. Those frag racks look really nice!
  6. Have you tried emailing to see if they have an eta of when they may restock the site? I ordered a refugium pack from them a month a go and emailed them some questions and they were very quick to respond. Might be worth a try
  7. Received a shipment from Mr. Tim Herman this weekend. Always great quality pieces. Ordered 5 and received 2 bonuses. From left to right: Poletta Yellow Tip (bonus), BC Awarewolf, BC Thermans Rainbow, BC Bleeding Tree v2 (bonus), ARC Fireworks, GH Aqua Delight, RMF Tigers Blood
  8. Thanks. Things seem to finally be settling in and looking happy. Colors have all come back to the majority of corals that went pale. Even my RMF Last Dragon echinata that I thought was a lost cause has come back completely and is growing out.
  9. Finally a relaxing Sunday spent enjoying the tank so....took some pictures
  10. Mid week water change excitement...
  11. I live local to both those shops as well. Like @Flounder said, Matt's Corals is best to visit during their sales and i have purchase some nice pieces at a good price at those times. Rivers to Reefs...went in there once, have never been back. Just felt it wasn't kept up well. Reef systems is my go to LFS in the area and has been since I got into this hobby. Even when I moved away for a few years, if I was back in town for work I'd stop in to check things out. Now I've moved back and live 5 minutes its nice to have a solid go to shop close.
  12. I really enjoyed my 25 lagoon. Cant wait to see this come together
