    and kind of new too reefing.....many FOWLR tanks in the past, but this will be my first full reef.

    Current tank is a 36" acrylic 75gallon mixed reef. I think I will be removing most of the soft corals I got with it save the polyps, and sticking mainly to LPS and SPS. I ended up with a ton of frags and am working to keep my frag tank healthy, and ID all the frags on the racks! I do know the yellow tangs are in to small of a tank......kind of inherited them with the system, so making the best of it. I may be a bit in over my head, im not even sure what a lot of these are, but I'm working hard to keep everything going.





    I have taken care of the hair algae issues in the frag tank.

    Welcome to Marsh!!

    Bottom right of the screw are torch corals. Middle and bottom left seems to be a hammer . Careful for the tentacles at night they extend out and will sting everything around. Let us know we can help you ID

    Thanks for the welcome! I'm not sure this is the right place to ask- I'm in the Beaumont area, but most of our LFS are gone(you have petco selling marine stock, that's it), do y'all have a couple favorite store in Houston that I can put on my list? I'm planning to add a peppermint shrimp and clean up crew shortly, and do not want to risk the real possibility of an ich invasion!

    I have some better high res images I took with the GH$ of parts of the frag rack, I'll have to post them this week and try to figure out what will and wont make it to this tank. I have more frags of those green torches(candy canes I've heard them called I think) than I know what to do with LOL.

    We have some great sponsors -- and a few members from Beaumont as well I believe.

    http://www.marsh-reef.org/marsh-sponsors/

    Personally, I have used reefcleaners.org for CuC with great success. Houston wise -- I can recommend FJW -- my cleaner and clowns came from there! Great coral as well. Also, personally have visited and purchased from ADG, Infinity Fish, Aqua Zoo (these are closest to me as I am South of town) -- lots of great stores further north as well.

    Finally -- Is the Ag part of your name TAMU? Howdy & Gig'Em if so!

    Yes indeed, I'm c/o '08, mom is c/o '79, have cousins going from '94 to '17. Howdy!

    I made the rounds a couple years ago to some stores, but I'm always looking. Couple hours for me to drive over .

    Here's some higher res pics I took. Got my skimmer in today, have a slight algae outbreak but not bad, gotta do the first maintenance round.









    Probably going to remove the xenia from this system, not sure about the polyps.....thinking about making this and SPS/LPS only tank, but I like the polyps.

    Howdy!!! Welcome. Daughter is there right now . I'm in the same great city of nothingness lol. Have a small group I have met from out here. We periodically round up a few of us and do what I call "making the rounds". We try to hit several stores and sometimes fellow MARSH members. PM if you ever need any help or want to make the rounds. Personally have visited Oceanlife, Urban Aquatics, FJW, Infinity Fish and several others. All great places.
