  1. Wow what an upgrade! That looks like Chad’s setup that I saw in person awhile back. Glad you were able to pick it up! .
  2. You may want to look at the CO2 scrubber options that bulk reef supply sells. I haven’t used a scrubber myself but have found others that claim their tank showed good results and enhanced growth after installing .
  3. I was always worried about adding a reactor to my system and found every excuse why I wouldn't because of the big upfront initial cost. But soon found out that most successful sps dominant tanks rely heavily on the reactors ability to keep parameters rock solid. The Skimz brand has really good reviews and will be worth its weight in no time. I will never run a tank without a calcium reactor again!
  4. Weekend bump and new pack price. .
  5. Sucks to hear about the rtn on such a nice looking frag. Did Adam ship with a heat pack? I wonder if temps might have gotten too low and caused stress. .
  6. Do you know what the mag, alk, and cal levels of a new batch of mixed water register at? If the new batch water is registering high cal and mag I wonder if that's the biggest driver affecting the alk level by causing precipitation in your reef. Some swear by the Fritz salt and others claim to have issues with it on other forums, I have never used it personally but it might be something to look into.
  7. Battlecorals is definitely the best in the business when it comes to customer service and sps selection. In the past I would pickup a few things here and there from other online vendors but after dealing with Adam on many orders I became a customer for life. .
  8. Local pickup in Hammond no shipping/no holds 7 Piece Pack Price $100 BC Snipers Blue $30 Blue Matrix $30 Palmers Blue Mili $30 Highlighter $20 Purple Tort $20 Upscales $20 Setosa $10 .
  9. Very nice piece Aaron, you may have more luck with finding a buyer if you try posting this on the Bayou Reef Facebook sales area. The traffic on this forum seems to be slower since the move to a social media platform. Good luck with the sale man!
  10. Nice sized pieces with a good variety of color that include Setosa, Purple Cap, WWC Slimeball. Pack price is $50 and local pickup in Hammond, LA (no shipping) .
  11. That Battlebox was a $400 10 piece pack with a another 5 piece frag pack that Adam listed and two freebies. .
  12. That’s a fantastic idea for the library! Y’all should look into the “pets in the classroom” grant for educators. .
  13. That little tank has become so much more than just a classroom pet for the students there. The kids are given a sense of responsibility during feedings, glass cleaning and weekly water changes. They are so committed to taking special care of the tank that they never forget to tell my wife if something looks out of place or ask questions when they find something new growing or living inside. The day they found a bristle worm was a huge day! My wife described it as if they made a ground breaking discovery of alien life living in the classroom haha .
  14. A quick update on the Madisonville Minnows tank! We transferred the nuvo back to Hammond for the summer and gave the glass a good cleaning and changed the water. The ric’s were eaten by a pesky peppermint shrimp unfortunately but the zoas are really starting to take off. I may need to find a few more varieties to add later at some point. .

    BC Battlebox

    I’m sure most of you sps addicts have either ordered from Battlecorals or scrolled through the online shop and created a wish list of nice pieces. I took advantage of the Battlebox deal provided by Adam and got way more value for my money. The frags are huge, some pushing small colony size. The packaging was probably the best I have seen for an online vendor, all the frags were double bagged and heat sealed with the coral’s name written for reference. Awesome experience from beginning to end!! .
  16. In my early days the biggest mistake was not doing enough research on everything I wanted to stock the tank with. For example wrasses without a screen top, adding a mandarin to a young system without pods, not quarantining new arrivals. Nobody is a reefing master from the start but your mistakes definitely shape your success later in the hobby. .
  17. Snagged one of my top five sps pieces from North American Coral Labs. It looks greasy under the reefbrites and photo film but couldn’t resist sharing a pic of the WD! . .
  18. Don’t hesitate on buying a frag guys. More than generous sized cuts with nice color and polyps out in the bags!
