  1. Well that must of been surprising!! I changed my number since then, I will PM it to you.
  2. I may be up for something if you can get Greg and JT there. Been a while since I talked about SPS......;)
  3. Glad to know that you all enjoy (or at least miss) seeing my NAUGHTY WORD around.......;) It will be nice to see what Derron does with it. It will also give me an excuse to set something back up in my office. The reptile business is going great, but I do miss fighting all of you for all of this fancy frags!
  4. Here is the tank that I loved the most and what I will try to recreate Again, many members were kind to come by place in years past to check it out. Just sharing!
  5. All Kidding aside, it has been a crazy Year+ for me since I was posting. Long story short, me getting back into reptiles has been crazy and as those of you who know me, know, Nothing is ever done part way. My partner and I and now the biggest importers of Chameleons into N. America. It has been a crazy ride. More on that later though, onto the reef tanks! To say the tank has suffered would be an understatement. Honestly, ever since that big fish loss I had years ago when I lost all of the rare anthias, I am not sure I was really excited about that tank any longer. Anyhow, The tank has been sold to a close friend who will do a better job with it. The good news is, selling the big tank will allow me to redo the floors in the living room which will make the wife happy! That being said, I am not out of the hobby. The next step will be to set up a new tank in my office (much like I had years ago that some of you came to see). So, once I get some remodeling done in there, i will start up the new tank. I will need some help from you to catch me up to reef technology! Thanks!
  6. It is possible as I am a bit bloated this evening. It's not Earls, we are both big guys, logistically it doesn't work. Ryan is a bit young for me, Derron though, well, you never know.... Oh Greg, you know you want to hear all about THE lizard! yes I am! Finger licking good and feeling frisky. Just turn around and smile for me! You can always count on kirk for a blast from the past!! Still one of the best days on the internet I ever had. Some Kick NAUGHTY WORD people in our reef club!
  7. You know me well, nothing is ever simple.....
  8. Yes, It has been a while...... Cant wait to share with you all what has been going on lately. Will share some updates this evening!
  9. Well, since I live about a mile from him, I think I will make it for this frag meet. I mean, it has only been a year since I was at the last one!!! Kim, want to swing by and take some pics of the Chams afterwards?? Let me know!! Bobby
  10. Yep, I forgot who though......LOL I am getting old.
  11. I wouldnt put a ton of energy and time into an overflow box for the 40b, just use the standpipe directly. I had the same tank set up with the same stand pipe, works just fine. let me know if you have any questions. Bobby
  12. All animals need K+, but I am guessing it is more along the lines of the system itself kicking in and the large amounts of bacteria metabolizing it. Regardless, if you feel it is accurate, slowly bring it up.
  13. Did you do the test multiple times to address 'user error'. That K+ is low, but as you mention, it seems a bit aggressive that it would take up that fast, especially with so few corals. Get the Alk down, right now that is the one parameter that you are struggling to get in the correct range. What are your current Phos and Trate readings? If they are low, or where you want them, I would back off on the ZeoStart to .7ml 2x day.
