    Beach time part 2?

    I got there around 10 pm. Algiers. Walked west past the first group of condos then the shells started to thin out like your middle pic above. Then turned around and went east and back to about a hundred yards past the eastern end of the park and the shells started to thin out again.

    Beach time part 2?

    Just got back. Went about an hour after high tide and walked the high tide line. Was there for about an hour and a half. Found one big sponge with a stone crab and no other sponges. Paper figs were as plentiful as the sand dollars a few weeks ago. Stopped picking them up after about 10 minutes. Didn't even bother with the fighting conchs. Surprised at the quantity of the other shells. Almost all snails or cockles. Very few scallops. I just couldn't stop with the whelks. A bit frustrated though. Was going for peppermint shrimp and not one in all of those shells!

    Brian Green Event

    Picked up a few corals at the auction yesterday. Tricolor favia, pinwheel zoas, blasto merlette, red robin stag and a rainbow lobo. No clue where I am going to put them, but I got more corals!

    Brian Green Event

    From the TBRC forum: It's that time of year again. Time to go down to Nokomis and enjoy an afternoon of BBQ and mingling. This annual event is a multi-club event that has folks from all over FL coming.For those who do not know, Brian Green is the original founder of the Tampa Bay Reef Club. There is always a huge number of people who visit each year and you do not need to be a member of any club to attend. If you need frags, this is your event. The event is large and in addition to some great food (Brian provides the entrees which are ribs and burgers) you get a tour of Brian's operation and at the close of the evening, there is a Frag Auction so bring cash(and it would be great for folks to bring smaller bills too! The limit to sell, for frag items, is no more than 15 per person and no more than 3 of the same item. This is a big event so there are tons of folks who bring stuff.Take good pics and copy them to a USB thumb drive and bring them with you. We will have a projector on hand to use if needed. In addition to your family, please bring a side item or dessert item to share with everyone. There is a ton of food so just one dish is fine. The TBRC will be bringing our cooler with sodas, juice and water. Any other beverages of choice are your own.ADDRESS: 201 SUNSET DR, NOKOMIS, FL 34275-3116START TIME: 4PM

    Brian Green Event

    Note this is a BBQ and auction. Auction split proceeds go to Brian to cover the cost of the BBQ. The Tampa club and SWFMAS provide drinks. Everything else is bring a side dish. For those that have not attended before, it is a great event. Starts early afternoon - ish. Food around 330-400 ish. Auction starts after the sun sets. Ends when you decide to go home. Auction is cash only.

    Beach Time

    I went as well. No shrimp. Only a few sponges. Nothing in them. Found one partial gorgonian and thousands of sand dollars. Found a few of the sand anemones. Kept one. Actually found four or five clumps of the caulerpa. Kept one clump. Found two pieces of manatee grass. As for shells, found a handful of smaller keepers and one really nice shark eye.
  8. Put a Cowboys star on the back of the tank, I'd be all over it!

    They do, and I would get a Raccoon, but Jason said he would not take him when done. Jason doesn't love me anymore!

    Sadly and aiptasia's. Planning a war on them. Two batches of nudis haven't done the trick. So just ordered a bunch of Joe's Juice and Aiptasia-X Did a scraping a couple weeks back to tinker on the right side of the tank. Did one last night to make sure I still had coral on the left side of the tank

    September Meeting

    A few more pics including some of the raffle items. ME Coral donated some frag dip and sample food for everyone at the meeting and some coral glue for the raffle. Had just under 40 corals for the raffle. I think everyone won something. Good mix of zoas (3 or 4 types), monti, acro, lepto and an acan.
