It was a fun meeting. Theresa has several very nice salt water tanks. The food was great. There were a lot of frags traded/sold. Matt gave lessons in how to frag corals. I forgot the frag stuff. I did remember to get Dan over to Matt's on time. We all got to Sebago Brewing around 6 and were not very hungry after all the food at the meeting.

A couple of pictures from Theresa's tanks. That is the largest carpet
anemone I have seen.

Mike, that lime water helped the red slime big time. Been dripping for two days and it's pretty much gone... Thanks for the tip!!!

Lime water (CaOH or CaO + water) has help me get rid of cyno
several times. It does not alway work. If adding calcium(CaOH) you need to monitor
your pH, calcium and alkalininity. When these all are stabilized, I believe this is less optimal for cyno growth.
To prove this I would have to try to grow cyno at different pH
values and record the results or find a study on this. I have not
had the time to do this yet.
Many people believe that you should never add anything you can/will not test for in your tank. In this case it is important
for several reasons.
1. The correct calcium levels are important for coral growth.
2. Your calcium level can become supersaturated. This can lead
to it precipitating out. This will change your pH,alkalininity and
calcium levels. It will take a while to correct this.
3. Your corals like stability. Temperature, pH, chemical levels and
salinity should be stable as possible. Some change by season
but not daily/hourly.
It is not difficult to do calcium additions. Many aquarist have had success adding CaOH. Many of us are not that disiplined on testing. After a while you get used to the process and "know" what your tanks need.
I expect I will get burnt by not following my own advice on testing.

Thanks for the picture Mike... It looks awesome Theresa... what a nice display in your aquarium....
Mike I always get these confused... CaOH is not the same as Kalk is it? Or is it..?
