    92g Oregon Reef

    Well, a few other details until I get the images up... Thus far, I have a few things ordered, including a Waveline DC6000 and a Waterblaster HY7000. I'm not yet sure which will be the return pump vs the closed loop pump, but I got great deals on both, and I guess I've got a little time to figure...

    92g Oregon Reef

    hmmm, it seems I'm having trouble getting the pics to load...if anyone has a good site to use to share photos here, I'd love to hear it. Photobucket was my old go to, but I'm not paying the ridiculous fees for that.

    92g Oregon Reef

    Hello all. After living in Hawaii for the past 5 years, we have moved up to the Pacific Northwest and it's time to get my fingers wet again. I'm a long time reefer, with my last tank being a 225g(5'x3'x2') custom peninsula that was taken down in a rush prior to moving to the middle of the...

    Been quiet but I'm still around...

    Hey Tim...long time brother. I'm in the early stages of piecing a new system together, albeit a bit less grand than the last few go rounds :)

    Vermetid Snail Predators

    Oahu. We live toward the middle of the island, but I work at Fort Shafter, fairly close to Pearl Harbor, and Mandi works in Honolulu. Traffic is HORRIBLE, and that's saying something coming from CA...but the atmosphere totally makes up for it :D I even have a little bit of a tan for once :debi:

    Mele Kalikimaka

    Just wanted to say Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas) and Hau'oli Makahiki Hou!(Happy New Year) to all of my "reef geek" friends as my wife would say :D This is the first Christmas that I have not had a reef tank since 1994, and it's a bit strange...I'm not sure if it's good or bad that you...

    Thoughts on sand sifting star

    IF you have a BIG tank, and IF the sand in the tank is for decorative purposes only, then they can make a great addition. I had a pair in my 225g and they were great. If you are using the sand bed in the tank as any form of biological filter or a place to grow pods, or if the tank is less than...
