Hey guitarded, what LFS do you go to in Hawaii? A good friend of my dad's is a retired lfs owner back in Hawaii. Although he is retired, he still has quite a few connections and can still get dealer rates.

About the Live Rock issue in Hawaii....
Are you sure you can't take a few pounds a day? Maybe the laws only limit the amount you can take, and not if you do so or not. OF course, find out before you go rock hunting. I'm sure the fines are pretty steep!

heineken,

there are only a couple places here. one SW LFS is called "Coral Fish". they don't have any equipment to support LR or reef tanks. they kind of have a reputation of having bad fish. the other SW LFS is called "Modern Pet Shop". i know it doesn't sound like a SW LFS, but it is a mom & pop operation that has, over the years, really leaned towards fish keeping, particularly SW fish. they have a good reputation of having healthy fish, but as the other shop, they don't sell equipment that supports LR or reef. neither shop has LR or LS because it would be illegal for them to sell LR/LS in this state.

as for harvesting LR in hawaii. the law states that a person can pick up 5 gals (yes gallons, not pounds) of LR per day, but it cannot be chipped off. i has to be rubble. the same goes for sand. i want to respect our environmental laws. so while LR would be difficult to get, i will probably get some LS... just enough to seed my arag sand.

Thats funny how the law allows 5 "gallons" of LR a day. How do these politicians come up with this stuff. LOL!

I had a questions about the noise that you are hearing, is it the sound of air moving or the fan motor. I just purchased a 24" JBJ lighting system and it has three fans and the noise that I am getting is the sound of air coming from the fans. If Coral LIfe fans can help quite that I would be all for purchasing one.
