    Hi names Merlin. I just found this place and hope to find some fellow reefers in my area to trade frags with. I keep planted tanks and had to sell my last reef tank when I moved from New Orleans. I'm originally from New Mexico and the Northwest but I've lived all over the place. I just got back into reefs with a sweet Craigslist AIO tank with a bunch of nice equipment and I'm super excited to start collecting some nice corals. I'll try and see if I can load a picture or two of my tanks.

    Very nice to meet you too! You have an awesome reef in the making. Thanks for the frags everything made it into my tank and they all look awesome. So back to our discussion on overpriced fish stores. I just happened to be down in Lakewood and checked out Stone aquatics. If you haven't been there yet it's one of the best I've seen in Colorado so far. It's warehouse size and the prices are fantastic. Definitely worth a trip.

    Vilkkomen. Sir. Couple crazies live up ur way so youll be in good hands. Charlie is a great guy (haddonis reef) got a few pieces of equipment from him. He's in Greeley. Looks like you met Rigo. He sold me a light and is a cool dude. Im in Lakewold but if ya need anything let me know. I only have LPS though but lots of Chaeto, Dragons tounge, other macro. Good luck

    I figure I better post a picture of my current reef setup. I just picked up this 24gal from a super awesome guy down in boulder. It was setup for 2 years with a very nice set of equipment. The only thing I need now is a dosing pump and a vortech MP10. I already found a good deal on the vortech but I still need to do some research on dosing pumps. My last reef was running a GHL profilux doser for three part but it looks like the markets exploded with options so it might take a while to narrow it down. Please forgive the ugly pump in the pictures I'm anxiously awaiting that MP10. Thank you everyone for the warm welcome. Timnem 70 I'm going to PM you about that Macro algae I only have chaeto and would love some other types.

    Thanks SynDen! Here's a few more pictures. Is it possible to post larger higher resolution photo's or video anyone? I'm sure there's a sticky on here somewhere I'll find it.

    Thanks JZ! Nice to see someone in town. I'd love to get some macro algae from you. I have some green nepthia/sinularia(?) or an extra rose bubble tip if you want to trade. Let me know

    4roaming that's a nice gesture. I replied to your PM, those sound like things I'd love to have in my tank :).
