  1. We'd love to add Reef 238 at IMCT in Hammond to the parade if you're interested. The reef's shipping delay has it going in in conflict with the meet at CC, so we'd be happy to make it available for a tour on another date.
  2. This mystery tank does indeed exist. Electrical and plumbing runs in the walls have all been installed and the walls closed up. We thought we were on our way but the material used instead of drywall, which had better insulating properties and resistance to moisture, started sweating a slick, clear, greasy fluid. Fluid analyses were inconclusive other than indicating it had high concentrations of magnesium. Since this material was on the ceiling over the tank as well as on the walls, it all had to be removed. Currently, we are renovating the fish room for Reef 173 at IMCT (many of you helped with the reef trimming several years ago) to bring it up to our current state of our art. Once that is complete, we hope to finally move forward with this monster project.
  3. I've been looking forward to sponsoring BRK for some time now, but didn't want to initiate the sponsorship until I had time to give it and the club proper attention. I'll be posting photos of recent project along with helpful maintenance and installation tips. Any questions anyone has related to the hobby, I am more than happy to answer. I've been at this a long time and want to help everyone out there as much as I can.

  4. If we can be of any assistance, don't hesitate to contact us directly: info@wetworkreefs.com or 504.458.3019.
  5. See you all tomorrow! 15 lbs. should be just enough for me. Bring extra if you think y'all will get hungry. See you tomorrow!
  6. There will be more than enough to go around and we will still be there. If you can't make it, arrange with another member to grab a few frags for you.
  7. Thanks for posting this lars. It appears it will be an ideal number of people. I will, of course, be handling all of the set-up and bringing everything necessary to accomplish the pruning and rebuilding. As previously stated, I will bring some cold drinks and bottled water. It will be up to all of you to determine what else to bring and who will bring it as far as food, additional drinks, etc. are concerned. Hoping for good weather. I recall someone mentioning they had gray plastic bus tubs. Three or four more would be helpful. Let me know so if necessary, I can get to G.A. Lotz for more before Saturday. Please do not arrive earlier than 11:30 AM. Looking forward to meeting all of you. Sam
  8. This is where the Frag Party is taking place on 16 March.
  9. If y'all had accepted the invitation I posted when I first joined BRK to "like" my business page https://www.facebook.com/WetWorkReefs on Facebook and looked through the photo albums you would know that work resumed on this project a few months ago . Project updates have been posted to the page's wall frequently and will continue to be. Several new photos have been added as well, but for now, it's just all framing, pipes, and wires. Maintaining posts on multiple sites is highly time-consuming, so until the new website is complete (within two weeks), the best place to find project updates is on Facebook. Here is the link for your convenience: https://www.facebook...04066150&type=3

    Good advice Will_D. Euphyllia sp. skeletons are highly porous and very easy to cut, trim, and break. Use great care to avoid shattering the main skeleton.
  11. Avoid drywall of any type in your fish room. Even drywall specced for bathrooms is not impervious to moisture. We recommend and use Magnesiacore exclusively in fish rooms -- walls and ceilings -- and replace existing drywall with it around and behind ground-up installations and in restorations when possible. Waterproof, fireproof, sound dampening. For more information go to magnesiacore.com or contact us through our forum page.
