  1. Nice candy cane...where did you get it from?
  2. Totally agree!!!
  3. __________________________________________________ Reefdiver: Thanks for the nice words. Much of the livestock is from the LFS and Local reefers, do you guys have a local reef club? Also, most of the rics are from an order of, bryan is a great guy to deal with. _________________________________________________ Thanks for the info FishninMyNano...Those new pics are awsome, love the Shrooms, Zoo's and Ric's. We have a reef club for the state back here, but the meetings move and the drives can be anywhere from 50 to 200 miles some I'm thinking about joining and catching the close shows, their having a frag swap in september. I've checked out E-Bay and, I seen some nice stuff and I'm going to be ordering some things soon. I just bought a Cpr 12" refugium and I'm getting Chaeto. I'm looking forward to seeing the results. As my 15L goes it's doing good and is 3 week old, I've been through several algae bloom albeit short live and my clean crew has done an awsome job (Kodo's) I think the cycle is complete 0 Ammonia, 0 trites, .10 ppm trates, PH 8.1, SG 1.024. Can't wait to start stocking it, I hope I can make it awsome, your aquarium has really inspired me.__________________________________________________
  4. How old are the lights and what is the condition of the fixture. I might be interested
  5. Hi Lolli, I sent you an e-mail at your yahoo account.
  6. Very nice, that's a good looking maxima, how long have you had it? And what size is your tank. RD
  7. I would like to get the orange ricordia and a few polyps off of zoo-7 if you can frag it any more. What form of payment do you prefer? I can send a money order or paypal if I can remember my username and password. Since were about 170 miles apart shipping should be simple, I would make the drive, but are oldest daughter is getting married in a week and half so things are kind of crazy around here.
  8. They look nice, are they $25?
  9. I would also like to get a few polyps off of 7 spare them. RD
  10. Do you have any Pics of the Ricordia? I'm interested, I probably wouldn't be able to make it to Ames any time soon but shipping them to Bettendorf would be pretty easy. PM or e-mail me with the details RD
  11. Beautiful tank, the aquascaping is great. I started up a 15L about a little over 2 weeks ago. It's progressing nicely, I'll be happy if it turns out half as nice as yours. Where do you get your corals from? I've been to all the LFS in my area and I haven't seen any interesting zoo's, Ricordia or Blasto's. Once again nice tank!! RD

What are you majoring in at IA State? My daughter will be graduating from HS next year and wants to pursue a degree in zoology. I checked out your website and was interested in zoo-7, zoo-9 and zoo-12. cheers
  13. PM'd you .... You can reach me at I'm in IA so maybe we can hook up.
  14. I used the Aragalive wet pack in my new aquarium. I purchased some very nice Fiji live rock from an LFS for $5.99 a lb. My tank is going on it's 3rd week of cycling and is loaded with isopods and copods. It showed 0 ammonia, 0 nitrates after 5 days, I had a shortlived brown algae bloom at the end of the 1st week which has cleared up. It appears to be progressing very fast, I'm not sure which introduced all the life (Live Rock or Substrate) but I'm seeing all kinds of bugs in the substrate, pods, little black tubes with Cilia extended when the actininics come on. I'm very pleased with how things are progressing. So far I have 5 Astrea Snails, 4 Blue legged hermits, 2 Bumble Snails (Hitch Hikers) and Yellow Polyps.
  15. Could you give us some information about your tank? How long have you had it? What size is the tank? What are your Ammonia, nitite, nitrate, PH parameters? RD
