  1. Great Auction!

    Sold some frags and of course bought some as well. Won a few things out of the raffle. Sorry the microphone broke.

    Also if you need help let us know.
  4. Dans auction list

    No problem. Once you do it, it gets easier. I know my first time putting corals in took me a while to get it listed correctly. It makes it easier for Matt (or whoever does the auction list) get it all organized.
  5. Dans auction list

    This was labeled as auction list so I moved it but you will need to format a list and pictures please. To register your corals for the auction, please create a post in the 2018 Spring Frag Auction section titled "[your screen-name]'s Auction Coral Registration Thread" and add your corals as follows: Item #, Scientific name (if you know it), common name and details - minimum bid (if you have one) Please list every item separately, for example, if you have 3 Red Cap frags, please list them on 3 separate lines in your auction thread. Do not list them as 3 x 1" Red Cap as this makes it harder for us to count and ensure that each item is properly registered and accounted for. For example: 1. Montipora Capricornis sp., Red Cap (1" by 1" frag on plug) - no minimum 2. Montipora Capricornis sp., Red Cap (2" by 2" frag on plug) - $10 minimum 3. Montipora Capricornis sp., Green Cap colony (10" diameter on rock) - $35 minimum 4. Zoanthid sp., Red Hornet zoanthids (8 polyps on plug) - $20 minimum ... While pictures are not required for registration, they are extremely helpful in increasing bids on your corals (We highly recommend them!). Please use the following format to post pictures of your corals: file format: .jpg picture size: 1024 pixels wide by 768 pixels high (please size your pictures before sending. Request help if needed with re-sizing pictures. If you need a tool to re-size your pictures, you can try webresizer online) file name: [item number]-[screen-name].jpg (example: 02-zyphen.jpg) You can add writing on the picture to label and point to a specific coral if the shot contains multiple corals, but please do not add your item numbers (provided once registration is closed) to what you write (as these will be different to the randomized lot numbers presented during the auction. You can write "Frag 1, Frag 2 on the pictures if multiple frags are in the photo.

  12. Carol and my absence...

    Well 2017 ended on highs and lows for us. We had a 2 week vacation which was great. We brought my Mom back and on the first day here she fell and broke her knee cap in 2. She had to have surgery to put the pieces back together. She got through that great. While recuperating from the surgery she got pneumonia and had to go in to the hospital. She was there for almost a week. FYI do not go to the hospital during season. Man what a mess. She is not back home and getting over everything. She is still in a knee brace and cannot bend the knee yet but she can move on her own. Big thanks to RickO for the lift chair! We should be at the auction and look forward to getting back! To bad we missed the Jan. meeting looks like it was great.
  13. New to the hobby...

    We used Chemi-Pure in our Nano. We had a media box in ours and we placed it in there. It does a great job.
