  1. Playing with my camera - Rock Nems and Reef Flats

    Jeff Was this the Keys or back to the East Coast where the club "meeting" was? Looks like you are getting the focus and color worked out. RickO
  2. Corals for sale

    Dave Good to se you having great items for sale. Everything looks great. I will get together with you towards the end of the week and bring my "shopping cooler" over to make some selections. RickO
  3. MMoore0324's Custom 50g Build

    Thanks for sharing your progress on this tank and sump build. It is fun to watch how the build goes together especially when the builder talks about the problems he is having and how he worked around then. Look forward to seeing the complete build on the next Tour of tanks the club has. RickO
  4. August Meeting - Snorkel Trip

    Jeff, what camera did you get? It takes nice photos. Can you post the location of the beach and what parking lot you used? I was on my way to a week of scuba diving in Belize (and dodging hurricane Harvey) and missed the "meeting". RickO

  8. I will take the Eheim 1262 pump. Are you in town this week? RickO
  9. Eheim 1262 return pump 900gph. $100 $85 now $75 Matt Is this still available and do you have the hose fittings to go with it or is it just threaded ports? RickO
  10. Cowie snails

    Atlantic Deer Cowrie as quite easy to find on both sides of the road near the horse shoe snorkel site. They are under rock ledges and I can usually find one or two on the other side on the retaining wall running parallel to the road or under the large slabs of concrete off that wall 20 feet or so. I have one the Seagull-cat Dave gave me the first time I went on a Club trip many years ago. I have never caught any of them eating anything valuable but I don have anything valuable. One thing to note is depending on what size you collect they are bulldozers and will knock anything smaller than coffee table over in our tank. Prior to my last tank seam leak I had a very cool Flamingo tongue cowrie that was doing good eating gorgonians like the ones he was collected off of.
  11. Looking for a water transfer pump and prefer a Supreme Mag series. Needs to be running. Let me know what you have. RickO
  12. Long term coral sale

    Ron I will purchase the toxic pie chalice if you can hold it until I return from my trip. Send me your paypal info and I will wire you the cash. RickO

    Matt I have a new one out of the box. I bought it on the first group buy but never installed it. Let me know if you need it. RickO
  14. David What are you going to use to check phosphate after you sell this checker? RickO
  15. New Website: Feedback, Issues, Suggestions

    Matt That link worked like a charm. My brain (what little there is) locked on the fact that the website had been changed so the problem was not my browser but the new website. Now to change all the computers I used to access SWFMAS site. Thanks for the time and effort you guys have put into this switch over (and tuning up the less computer skilled website users). RickO
