  1. Come one, come all to the 2019 Winter Frag Swap! Confirmed Exhibitors: Jolt Fishworks Tylers Tanks (Tyler) Pod Your Reef (Josh) iJam (James) Uchin Jon Hanna Deluxe Corals (Philip) Stoneroller (Kevin) Unlimited Color Corals (Christopher) North American Coral Labls (Justin) Obsessive Coral Desires Doors open at 9am - 1pm, admission is FREE to attend! @ Hillcrest Church - 3838 Steck Ave, Austin, TX 78759 map For those of you that are new to frag swaps, it's just a gathering where people who have coral frags to sell or trade come together. Exhibitors will bring display tanks so you can see their corals under ideal conditions (water flow, lighting). Many buyers will bring frags of their extra or overgrown corals to trade, sell, or give away. You don't have to rent a table if you're just bringing a few frags to swap. It's really just a great occasion to come check out the huge variety of corals that your fellow members and friends are growing and to 'talk tank'. Bring the kids for special guest, the Austin's Photo Booth Guy! https://www.facebook.com/austinsphotoguy/ Exhibitors must RSVP in advance. Tables are $50 (please no sharing), fees offset venue cost, expenses, and support our scholarship fund. Setup will be from 7am - 9am for sellers with breakdown from 1pm to 2pm. Bring your own water and power strip (and cleanup towels), we'll provide the tables and chairs. Tables can be reserved through the store link below:

    Buying and Selling Items - Rules of Thumb

    Hi Venu, No, there are no differences between the Premium and regular member accounts. I show your account was locked due to too many unsuccessful login attempts. I don't show any support tickets created by you, please feel free to contact me directly here (mframe), or to email at [email protected] if that is easier. That said, I understand how frustrating login issues can be. This most likely issue is that your phone, table, or another device is attempting to maintain a connection to the site and ultimately causing the account to be locked. To address that, I need you to log out and remove any stored credentials on any devices and browsers that you use or have used to access ARC. Once you are logged out on everything (including the Tapatalk App if you use it), then you will reset your password. At that point login with one and only one device, preferably a computer. If the account remains working then we can slowly add back devices until we find the culprit. Mike
  6. There will always be the potential for confusion during the sale of an item. That said, I think there are a few things you can do when buying and selling items that can eliminate the confusion. Sellers: the price you want for the item pickup terms (will you meet someone for delivery or will they be coming to your place? What hours are pickup available) whether you want to sell items as a group or individually whether you will hold items, and if so, under what terms (Paypal holds item, etc.) how you will determine who gets the item (first post, first PM, etc.) preferred means of communication (email, cell phone, PM, post) Buying: understand when you commit to buy that the seller is probably turning down other offers, so be good to your word don't complain if you get beaten out on a deal, it happens to all of us I'm sure everyone here can think of points to add, so reply here and we'll compile a list of Buying and Selling guidelines that we will try to adhere to within the For Sale forums.
  7. Thanks to our killer ARC staff that made it all possible, specifically Brian, Isaak and Christy! And thanks to our vendors and many attendees, hope all of your tanks are more colorful this morning!

    The new tank is up!

    Yep, time is your friend. I like a few cleanup crew members to keep it stirred up (snails and small hermits), but a lot of people don't like them.

    For most jobs you're better of having someone do it for you. Have you checked with Regal Plastics (https://www.regal-plastics.com/)?

    Red and green and bubble algae

    It might be worth seeing if you can borrow one. Temporarily it can be placed beside the tank with an infeed tube going into the water on one side and a return on the other. I would also add carbon or maybe chemipure to try to start filtering anything out of the water that might be there. The other thing to is a 3 days of darkness treatment to try to starve it out. The growth you're seeing is dependent on light.
