  1. Even though I am only in my second year of membership, I do have to agree with boognish. I look at my own posts, weather it be identifying, general questions, or like my latest post of trying to sell out because of health problems. The replies are close to non existent and the viewed are basically 0 to 4. When I first joined I was recieving new post notifications on the daily. Now it's every other month. What is the point of a paid membership other than access to the buy/sell section which is 90% useless for me because I only have softies and the corals that do go up are hard corals? I end

    20 Gallon L

    How soon do you need this? I am shutting down my 20 L reef tank and have a 10 gal for refugium. It has all the equipment needed all set up and ready to go, such as a sump return, hob filter, 2 mini hob protien skimmers, just about everything you need if you have not already purchased or have it on hand. I just need to sell or rehome the fish, corals and clean up crew first. If you dont want any of equipment you can have the tank Let me know. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. I am not to sure. I actually caught one from my smaller tank and took it in. They said it was a bristle worm and it was 5 times the size of these little ones. It had legs like a centipede. These are smoth kinda like an earthworm, but then again they are still tiny.
  4. I only buy from 1 store, and it is my fault. But what are these?!?! I just bought a 20/20 cuc and now I started seeing these things. No corals in this tank, just a few cheap fish. Someone help please!

    I was not going to charge you, it has been storage for years. Unfortunately I asked my idiot roommate to grab it last night, and he lifted wrong, hit something ang shattered the side panel. I am going to look today because I still think I have another one. I just realized you are like an hour away. If you are going to the frag swap, if I find it. I can bring it with me and you could grab it there.

    I have no idea where Kyle is, I am in North Austin. You can PM me for more details if that's not to far.
  7. Please have some softies. There some of us that still have not graduated to the hard corals yet. I payed off all my CC debt, I am ready this time! Really looking for the green tip toadstools! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. The first photo is my old lighting system, directly below it the ai hd. I have the ai neck and it is extended as high as I can possibly make it stretch. The further away the light the less par. After I spoke with a sales rep today I would need a minimum of 2 for the higher par and no shadows. One light is good for a 12x12, not a 24x12.
  9. The api I was running was: Uv 119% V 116% Royal blue 79% Blue 80% G 4% R 4% Cool white 19% Even with everything at 100% I do not think I am getting half the brightness from your pics. I will send photos tomorrow and show you the difference. I am still hoping for a full recovery from this go round. After switching to the ai hd my beautiful purple mushrooms went totally brown. 😯
  10. I am still looking around for a just right api for me, but no such luck. I did try what you suggested. It is still way to dark. I stll have my old light up, and turn off the ai hd, then switch back to the ai hd light, and I swear it is not even 1/2 the brightness I get from my old one. I had the ai hd running for 3 days and watched all my mushrooms completely close as well as all my toadstools fall, dropping or closed. I put the old one back in for daylight times an use the new one for night time. My toadstools are perking back up, but my mushrooms are taking a bit longer to fully extend
  11. I just upgraded to the AI hd lighting, vs my old fluval 2.0. I was told that for my nano tank (20 long) that the AI hd would be more than sufficient. I set it up with very limited instructions. I have the presets, it was so dark I couldn't even see my corals in the center of my tank. I tried to manually adjust it and still can not get even 1/2 the brightness as I did on my fluval 2.0. I looked all over the web and tried several different api's, still so dark. Am I missing something? Bad light, or this light is not what it claims? I do not see the point of going to ren
  12. Howdy, What type of tanks do you have? We love pictures!

    Hey Marrio, Welcome to the club, and sorry about the losses. I am up nort, give me a pm about what you need to store and I will see what I can help with.
  15. I am starting to sock one of my tanks. I first read that the chromis was the least aggressive of the damsels and followed the reccomend school of 6. In a very short time I was down to one. I scoured my tank looking for anything, corpse, leftovers, anything and found nothing. Last week I did the same restock, bought 5 to add to the sole surviving one. Today i am down to 3. I have searched everywhere, including the floor, (are these guys known to be jumpers?) It is a 55 gallon so I do not think tank size is the problem. Are they just eating each other? I can not find bones or anything tha
  16. Welcome Ashton, Yes we like pictures! LoL As mentioned before there are tons of posts, and if you can not find what your looking for, just ask. I went the opposite route as you, starting off with a 20 long, got the fever, and just finished with a 50 gal. Once I get it stocked and running I have a 175 fresh that I will convert. Good luck and welcome.
  17. I was just wondering if you had a better photo of the toadstools. Can not see the very well with that lighting, and to say I am intetested in them. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Sump tank

    I am looking for a sump tank, 20 gallons preferably that has that has the dividers set in place. I am no longer physically able to do a diy, as attempt number 2 failed. I do not have the strength to squeeze enough out the tube or use a calking gun. My first attempt I have to guess was not enough caulking because all 4 partitions failed. After cleaning all that up I sealed it again, waited 3 days and put another seal on top. Today after three days to cure the first 3 failed I did not wait for the fourth because I figured it was a gonner too. I have to use a press to get the caulk out and use a
  20. Try testing the water you are adding I sometime have a label fall off or the jugs got switched. Use tap water to see if you need to recalibrate it. Do you have any salt creep that may have or is falling into the tank? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Hi All

    Are you wanting to buy them or just read up on them? I do not know how anyone is searching for them but I go to the first page opening in tap talk and search from there and see lots of posts, even group club like ours devoted to just shrimp. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  22. Hey RyanS, Check out this thread. http://www.austinreefclub.com/index.php?/topic/40320-I-got-worms#entry338207 Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  23. Thanks for the quick reply. I am going to guess from your reply they do not damage corals? If I did want to rid my tank of them, manually or? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  24. I hope the quality of the photo is good enough. But is this a good worm or a bad worm? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  25. How unlevel is it? Yes it might eventually stress the side and cause it to fail. If it is minute, I would not be to worried about it. If you are talking about 1/2 inches or more, that could be a problem over time. Can you send photos of the water level, tank and one of the stand as well? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
