Just throwing out an idea here gents.

I think it would be fun to get together once a month at a different house to check out each others tanks and talk reefing and frag swap. I will host the first one if people are interested.

Any takers?

I've actually been thinking up something like this for a few weeks. Suprising to see someone post it :D

I'm thinking of setting up a more formal marine / FW aquarium club here on the island. What do you fellas think?

sounds good to me Magrath, I am definitely down. Always like constructive criticism on how to make my project better. Magrath do you have any up to date pics of your tank? Also of your equip? Anyone else who would like to share the more the marrier!!! I like to see new and different ideas. I will get some pics of my equipment.

I would love to be a part of this social club. The only thing is my tank is not ready. The last tank I had is broken down now and I am trying get another tank started.

does your butteryfly fish not bother your clams or coral? I haven't personally had one but I read they are not reef safe at all. Thanks for the pics you definitely have added alot since you have been here. Since my tank has been up almost all of my rock has coralline covering them completely. Their are a couple that dont', has anyone seen a copper banded butterfly lately? If so and how to get to that store. I live at kinser and I am not too fimiliar with all the # hwy's around, I can get around the island, but never paid much attention to the #s. My aiptasias are rather annoying and using joes juice all the time gets expensive after awhile.

Hey I am heading out diving this Saturday morning and will be coming back with some goodies so I was thinking we could have a get together at my house when I get back around 1500. I can also take requests before I head out. Let me know who can make it.

No SPS's on this trip; however, I am heading out again later this week and can pick up some SPS frags. I will shoot you a PM towards the end of the week.

what tools do you use to frag ? I am thinking about getting some stainless steel tools to use

bethnjeremy
06/03/2008, 06:57 AM
you use stainless steel cutters or if you need to get under it use a hammer and chisel. I will get some photos of my tank. I have the top of my tank almost covered with sps now.
