  4. The Keys trip is set for June 22 and 23. Black Finn motel will be the headquarters for most club members attending. The previous dates will not work as Black Finn was sold out. Saturday morning we will be snorkeling on Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary as a group and have dinner together Saturday night. I will be stopping after the snorkel trip to look around the "horse shoe" area and scout for creatures to collect. Sunday will be open for snorkeling and side trips to local attractions and possible stop at KIP Aquatics on the way out of the Keys. Please make your own hotel reservations at the Black Finn on Marathon 305-743-2393 Please respond with how many snorkelers you will have on the Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary boat trip.

  6. WOW, that clam will look great in my tank. Now all I have to do is figure out how to stack the deck. Who is shuffling the cards? RickO
  7. RickO (single) will bring coleslaw. Anyone intrested in carpooling? RickO
  8. Thanks to Jeff for setting up this field trip to the Florida Aquarium research site. To see all of the staghorn corals (Acropora cervicornis) that they have settled out from wild collected coral spawns and grown to baseball and larger size to be replanted on the Keys reefs was amazing. We also saw the continuation of Martin Moe's long spine urchin (Diadema antillarum) research. New tanks and new plumbing with new ideas along with Martin Moe’s original ideas. As seen in Jeff’s photos, the mature coral colonies are from wild collected coral heads and moved to the Apollo as an “Ark” (Noah’s Ark) type safe location and secure from ocean borne diseases. I can wait for the next field trip as they are very educational. RickO
  9. RickO and Lisa will be going. Plant City Strawberry Festival is happening that weekend also. Drive up Saturday go to Aquarium overnight and catch the SB Festival on Sunday morning? RickO
  10. Charlie Group two and Five have my name written all over them. Will it be okay to re-Freeeeeeeee items? RickO
  11. Thanks DBL. Either one will work. I will check with you this coming week to run down to your house. RickO
  12. Power supply needed to run Ecotech Vortech Marine pump. Needs to have 24 volts with about 2500-3000 milliamps. I can change the output end so any end will work. Thanks RickO
  13. Nice build with some quality ideas and products. I have a question on how will the lid of the skimmer and overflow switch will be attached to the control panel to allow for the lid to be cleaned? RickO
  14. Just got back last night from Dave's "Seagullcat" house with some incredible looking mini colonies. The “Tyree bubblegum monster” is a true monster frag with great color and puffs up when feeding. All the other mini colonies/frags are well grown and LARGE. I will post some photos after the corals get used my lights and the water conditions (water change tonight) in my tank. His two display tanks are just packed with great looking corals and the frag tanks has frags growing together. Thanks
