  1. Hi! I sent the pics (2?) the last time we talked did you not get them?
  2. First let me start off by saying I am not 100% positive what model this skimmer is, but I do know it is a Reef Octopus. I was told this was a $1200 skimmer new and have no idea of the age, but should not be more than a few years old. I am thinking it may be an older model "Hurricane". I have been using it on my 150 for 3 months and it works awesome. It has an Octopus Turbine pump attached that will come with the skimmer. It was sold to me as "rated for 400 gph". The skimmer is currently running in my tank, so providing measurements is virtually impossible, but I'll give it my best shot! I'm sure someone who has seen my tank (from this board) may be able to help out. I do have more photos of same on my phone and will be happy to text to you. Just shoot me a text asking for same, (337) 652-1966. Please, text me as I am not checking the board often these days ASKING - $75 IF INTERESTED PLEASE CALL OR TEXT ME AS I DON'T CHECK THE BOARD OFTEN! (337) 652-1966 Skimmer is mounted on black acrylic base, approximately 29" long. The cylinder is approximately 32" high and is 25" in circumference. It has red adjustment handles on it. The skimmer has grey and red parts on it. If there are any questions you have regarding this skimmer, just text me. I can say that Bobby, Cody (Ark) and Michael (StangGT66) has seen it recently and know more about it than I do! LOL! Maybe they will lend me a hand here? Thanks, guys! **I will attempt to clean the best I am able, but I just had surgery and cannot lift anything and the use of my arms is limited
  3. That's one thing that used to upset me so bad. When I was selling, the most color enhancing I ever used was lightening of a pic. No other color enhancement at all. But I'm sure it hurt us in sales as our coral was not as "bright" as they were in other pics But, I didn't want to mislead anyone. Personally, I feel that it's just a gross misrepresentation of a coral. Just saying!
  4. Approximately 4 years old? Not used often until past couple of months. Has a TDS meter attached (purchased separately) but the switch will not move to show TDS input, only output. This is not a biggie as output is what one needs to be most concerned with. The brand is Aqua FX. 4 Stage Barracuda RO/DI unit with TDS meter (see above) - $75 firm (Paid $225 new) - Filters will need to be changed again in the near future. In perfect condition, no problems other than above mentioned (TDS meter). Believe rated for 50 gpd. Have owner's/instruction manual. Very easy to operate/use. Don't have pics, camera on the blink. Can text photos. ALSO: Have a set of replacement filters for unit for an extra $15- Purchased recently from Bulk Reef Supply for $21.99 plus shipping. Please call for into. Please text me at (337) 652-1966 if interested. Please do not send me an email here. I have not been checking my messages that often. Thanks!
  5. Cody, your tank is gorgeous! Absolutely stunning! How's my little fish doing? Did you name him yet? LOL! I just love the Flame Hawks. They are full of personality! Told ya you would like him! Nick, Cody has seen my tank Cody's my "buddy" and stops by to see me and help me on a regular basis! LOL! Poor Cody! Anyway, everything is up, running and waiting on ya! I'll see you and Cody on Sunday
  6. Yep, some Chalice can be quite "pricey"! Not saying it's not "bright" in color, but looks like there's quite a bit of color enhancing going on there! How about this one?
  7. Oh, cool! I didn't know that! The above mushroom was actually about 3" by 3" as were most on the colony. There were some smaller babies under the bigger ones. Some of the biggest rhodactis I've seen!
  8. Well, I sold the sadistic rhodactis colony today! It will be missed Probably one of the prettiest coral colonies I had left
  9. Wow, thanks for the info, Tobias! Didn't know that! Kirk, you know I'm not sure? I just assumed it was my sand sifter star as the leg was quite large. I haven't seen an Asterina that large, but that's not to say they don't get that large! Now that I'm thinking about it, I'll bet it was an Asterina! I just never realized they would eat them!
  10. Ok, got a pretty definate on the tank sale. Have updated above equipment, etc. Now to get rid of the fish Coral and rock....working on updated list / prices on this
  11. UPDATE: I believe I have my tank sold. I believe the person interested will want to pick up tank this week or Monday the 9th. That being said, I need to get rid of my fish, coral and rock l I have left FAST. I have reduced the price on my fish in above original post. Will do fish package which includes all fish for $80. Would prefer package to go to someone who has a nem or who will promise to get one for the clowns. I have an anemone for sale as well that is attached to a piece of live rock. **Will know something more definitive later today or tomorrow. If he buys, will need to get rid of coral and rock asap. When I find something out about sale, will update coral and live rock in separate post. I have approximately 200# of Marshall Island live rock, some with coral attached. It is some nice rock, large, nicely shaped pieces. Would like to sell all together, but will sell by piece. Will post prices in another post if tank sells. Thanks!
  12. OMG, Tobias! Thanks for the info! I had no clue that they would eat inverts and fish! Crazy! I had some green rhodactis that never saw the digestive fibers, but never moved them around in my tank. Tobia, do they sting as well?
  13. I believe it has (5) or (6) polyps and $100 total. I usually sell these for $25 per polyp. I will recount the polyps today if you think you might be interested. The $100 is a firm price. Not sure but may consider fragging them out and selling per polyp, just not sure if I have the time to do so as I think someone is buying my 150.
  14. I would not have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own two eyes, but my friend Cody from LARC came over yesterday and shot this pic of my Superman Rhodactis with my starfish leg in it's mouth. Was he eating it? It also stung him and left whelps? I didn't know these things were capable of stinging? I've touched I can't tell you how many Rhodactis and have never been stung. This one has white stringy things that come out of the mouth when aggravated. I've also never seen that before! I must say Cody got a kick out of this! LOL! And yes, they're for sale
