    January Meeting - Field Trip to Mote Aquarium

    We had a good time and even found the Save Our Seabirds facility between the two Mote buildings. Got in for 1/2 price because we had Mote tickets and spent about 90 minutes looking at all kinds of rescued birds, some injured, some abandoned, some local and some non-native and some very attractive! Which is why we missed lunch. But on the way home we ate at a new place in Cape Coral call Ginger Bistro at the Veterans and Surfside Sandoval Plaza. Good food and lots of it! Good trip and a good start to 2019. Thanks to all who helped pull this together! Ron

    2019 Meeting Schedule

    This is a great list of meetings. Thanks for all the work it takes to pull this together. Any chance the Frag Auction can have a raffle like the ones we have had in the past at Reef Conferences... since there is no reef conference?

    Aqua Medic skimmer - cheap or free

    Thanks for the good words. It has been a great skimmer, but it's a bit much for my 40g cube!!!

    Free 1hp AquaEuroUSA chiller

    It's yours if you want it. The question is, do you want the Ranco controller too?
  6. I have a very used Aqua Medic Turbo Floater 5000 Shorty with a spar collection cup. I had this on my 400 gallon system and it did a fine job. This unit has been through a lot and has some ugly repairs… but it still works. The OcearRunner 3500 pump is only about 2 years old. They sell new for $685.00. see link: http://www.saltwatertogo.com/aqua-medic-turboflotor-5000-shorty-compact-protein-skimmer.html If you have a big system and want a backup skimmer, this could be just the ticket, cheap and functional! I only want $50 for it as I think the OceanRunner 3500 is worth that much to me as a spare pump. It cost over $130.00 new. It's FREE if you don't want the pump! The photo is from the internet. If you want to see real photos, contact me and I'll text them to you. It's very used and ugly, but it's only $50... or free if you don't want the pump! skimmer by Ron Lindensmith, on Flickr
  7. I have an AquaEuroUSA 1hp chiller you can have for free. It’s 7 years old and it still cools water as well as it did when it was new. I used it on a 400g system and then a 210g system. Now that all I have is a 40g cube with led lighting, I don’t need it anymore. Being perfectly honest, it has issues. The bottom and sides are a bit rusty and the built-in thermostat has failed. But I have a new, in the box, Ranco thermostat controller that can run the chiller. The chiller was $1100 new and costs $1300 now, the new thermostat was $45 new and has not been used! Given its old, rusty and has a failed thermostat, I’m giving it away free! If you need a backup for your big chiller, this can do the job. The Ranco remote thermostat is new in box and I'll take $30 for it. Reply here, send me a PM or send a text to 239 699-6339. These photos are from ads on the internet. If you want actually photos, text me and I'll send whatever you want. Screenshot 2018-10-20 10.37.27 by Ron Lindensmith, on Flickr

    Free Kittens

    Tried to text ya but don't have area code so didn't go through Shoot me a text so I'll have right # Ha! I lost all the phone numbers from my phone about 2 weeks ago. I had the phone in a bag I was carrying on a beach walk and I think the bottle of water bumped the phone and deleted my photobook. I'll send you a PM with my number.

    Hey Dave, Nice to see you back on the forum. I love the gray tabby, but Maia (our cat) and Elaine say I can't get a cat. Sorry! I'd be interested in stopping by to look at corals. Do you have many zoas?
  10. It all looks really well done Charlie, nice clean workmanship, congrats. I like the egg crate platform on top of the pipes running along the bottom of the tank. Did you have that kind of set up under the rocks in the original tank?

    black clownfish

    Matt, if I had a bigger tank I'd take them in a heartbeat! But my 40g cube is so full of rock, coral and anemones there just isn't room for more fish.

    Photon v2 led 42"

    "For sale photon v2 42" led light ..." Adolfo, I'll assume this is a typo since Reef Breeders doesn't make a 42" fixture. They make a 32" and a 48". My guess it you have a 32" and $350 is a pretty good price. If I could use a 32" fixture I'd buy it. I currently have a 16" RB Photon V2 and if your's had been a 16" or 24" I'd have bought it as a backup. Good luck.
