    Spidey waving HI to old buddies :)

    Hi old and new buddies. I consider us "new" in the hobby now that we've been out of the hobby for about 4 years. We moved to Colorado and couldn't take our tanks with us, so they went into storage, most equipment was kept and all livestock I donated to different hobbyists. We're getting back...

    Waving HI and asking who are the mods these days?

    It's beeeeeeen a long time since I was here last. Let's see who still remembers me :) Also who are the mods currently, I was prompted to show up here after I got a nasty PM from someone who didn't like my name (he/she is spidergirlkillr). I'd say it's time to hang her sorry a$$ to the side of...

    SAYING GOODBYE TO MOTHER...... We were dressed and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party. We turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we...

    VorTech mp20 or mp40?

    I'm going to upgrade my ph's in our 75g reef to VorTech pump. MP20 is for tanks 20-70 and could work by itself for the 75, but MP40W would be something that I'll never need to change for the tank. I have Tunze's in the 150g reef, but wanted to try something different with this reef. Which would...

    Carbon... I think I messed up

    Long story short, hubby finally installed the Lifereef filter cylinders to the larger tank's sump according to instructions. I rinsed the carbon well and put the cylinder in the system. About 15 minutes after I could tell how dark the water in the tank was. I guess no matter how well I rinsed...

    Hubby finished our girls play room just in time

    He has been hard at work tonight putting our girls presents together and we finished their play room. It used to be our formal dining room, but we never used it for that.

    Funny for the day

    THANKSGIVING STORY I recently received a parrot as an early Christmas gift. I found the parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. I tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying...

Yes today would have been the best day to do that, but we were not going to stand in lines and fight with nutty customers. We went with Onkyo 7.1ch system and and LG BH200...

    My Ocellaris and Percula have mated

    I wasn't sure if they would ever mate, but I have a Ocellaris female who is over 6yrs old and a Percula male who is around 1.5yrs old now. I moved them from a 75g reef to our 150g reef tank a month or so ago and gave them an RBTA. First of all they show no interest in the anemone, but the female...

    I can't believe it! I went to feed the livestock in the nano and was checking everybody eating. First of the 2 PomPom's showed up and the second shortly after from other side of the tank. The second one is carrying bright orange eggs. They saw each other and attacked each other. I looked at the...
