  1. This is my current ‘For Sale’ inventory: 4 big rocks covered with corals (mostly zoas) $30 to $40 4 medium and big rocks with a lot of corals (mostly zoas), 50% to 100% covered $10 to $30 1 Tonga branch with zoas, palys and 2 small RBTA $50 with RBTA and $25 without 10 small rocks with lots of zoas $10 to $20 40 frag plugs with various zoas and some other corals. 2 frags for $1 to $5 each I’m not listing coral names as I don’t know most of them.

  2. 2018 Keys Trip/meeting June 15, 16 &17, 2018

    We are booked there as well. We just cancelled our trip scheduled for this week (May 23rd & 24th) due to rainy weather in the Keys on Wed and Thrus.
  3. 2018 Keys Trip/meeting June 15, 16 &17, 2018

    Rick, Elaine and I are OK for the 'big boat' snorkel... depending on what reef it's going to. I'd prefer Looe Key and Sombrero Lighthouse is OK to (Elaine has never been there). Our schedule is to drive down Friday morning (with our 10' Zodiac) and get in one afternoon snorkel (probably on the Florida Bay side). Saturday morning do the group trip. Saturday afternoon do a snorkel based on conditions. I'd like to do Money or Molasses Keys with the Zodiac. But if weather conditions keep us closer to shore, then Little Money Key or the Horseshoe and the alternate side of Spanish Harbor Key from the Horseshoe. Sunday we will probably do 2 snorkels, morning and afternoon. Locations will be decided by the weather and water conditions, but we have a couple of new (to us) locations we want to try along with Little Bahia Honda Key and the shoreline along the Florida Bayside of Spanish Harbor Key between the Horseshoe and the boat ramp at the southwest end of the island. We will load up and drive home on Monday. We will be in the Keys once before the Club trip and we'll report our observations about the trip here. Probably while we are still in the Keys. If anybody has any questions or wants us to check out anything specifically (like is 'whatever' open yet), just ask or send us a PM. We do plan to visit Bahia Honda to have a look around even though as of right now there good snorkel beach is still closed.
  4. New tank & sump

    So I've been selling off corals from my 125g tank and soon will put the entire 125g tank, sump, stand, pump, skimmer and led fixture for sale. My plan was to keep the 50g cube. The cube needs a sump, so I have the glass and I'm ready to build. But I'm considering using 3M Co 5200 adhesive rather than black RTV silicone. On top of that, I'm considering replacing the 50g cube with a new build that will fill the stand. The new tank would be 36"x24"x20", rimless, with a white back glass and made with 3/8th thickness. The 3M 5200 is white and with the white stand I think it will look good and be a bit different from everybody else's tanks. The question is, will 3M 5200 do the job of holding a roughly 75g aquarium together leak free long term? I'm 95% sure it will, but I can't find anybody who has tried it to prove the point. And thoughts will be appreciated. BTW, lots of zoas and a few other corals getting sold cheap to empty the 125g tank! Some frags, some small and medium size rocks and a couple of big rocks and a tonga branch that is about half covered in zoas!

    Whether the club goes or not, Elaine and I are already booked at Blackfin and we have every intention of going. We are going next week and we'll scout around some and report back what we find.
