I also like the idea of you going to a local reef club. My reef club has a bunch of local stores that we hold events at and the turnout is amazing! We have had 100 people swarm a store sometimes so I know the store owners are very happy. I think it's like $50 or $100 bucks to become a sponsor of my club for instance and they get exposure every week. When we have an event at a sponsor store the store generally donates something for our raffle and they also give 10% off to reef club members.

You can get a lot of traffic in your store this way, so much so that you'll be wiped out of stock! lol Our club wipes out a stores inventory in just a few hours.

Good luck! I do plan on taking a road trip one day to you, just gotta save up some $$

Another good read on how phosphates are added to the tank and how some people can blow the problem out of proportion.

One last one for the day... An excellent article of how to get the best pictures in the aquarium- especially those with LEDs and bright blue hues...

So I sponsored a club the other day. Just have to get the rest of the livestock added to the website and let them know when I'm done! Woohoo! You would not believe some of the corals and fish I picked up today!!! It's so hard not to keep some of them for myself! Lol

Very smart move in my opinion. The lady who owns the store I shop at is all over the boards on our club. She is always helping people with great advice. As a result I (and lots of others) will shop nowhere else as long as she has it.

Ok. Wish me luck. Switching out sumps today. Along with about 75 gallon water change. Lol. I figure start in about an hour and finish at midnight after I get all the water in. Lol. Running to lowes now or new zip ties and new clamps for the soft plumbing. Not foreseeing any re plumbing- but would like to change out Clamps an reorganize. My fish or corals won't like me or a few hours but they don't hold a grudge.
