I haven't seen one on TSA's site in awhile either. Hopefully @FarmerTy AB will start taking off now that its growing again after the sump upgrade.
I haven’t been looking. I wonder why? I’ll hit up my buddy, he works there.

Dosed LC on Saturday and checked levels yesterday. PO4 went from 0.08 to 0.05 in a day. I dosed again yesterday and will check again today. So far I haven't had any issues. Corals look good and fish are doing fine. I can't believe I waited this long to dose it.
I’m glad it’s going well. It’s such a simple and cheap option to removing phosphates. I’m surprised there’s not more public adoption of it like GFO.

Sheesh I need more fish :( still waiting on my lid to be made. I have a few tangs already and I can’t get my phopahates up past 0.03
Feed the fish so much until they start to run away from you when they see you.

Have a look on @SawCJack00 's thread and see what happened recently. (So heartbreaking.) Then you will understand why there is hesitancy amongst more reefers using Lanthanum. There are huge risks to animals with it.

Not saying it can't be done, but wow! Be careful how it's implemented!

It's a small world of elite reefers out here, and I'm just lurking on the outside, or jumping and taking a peek over the fence....:rolling-on-the-floor-laughing:

So I’m a bit smitten by this new piece. Got a tiny itty bitty piece from a local buddy when he trimmed his piece to try to encourage growth. It’s the SRC Panty Snatcher. The originator lost his colony.

My buddy’s flying saucer of a piece is below as well.

Love it so much I went and bought a real frag of it which came in yesterday from @akaimal. Once it settles, I’ll snap some nice pics of it of course. Just wanted to share.

I would be terrified of trying a nub like that. Shipping temps would be enough to make it mad.
Yeah, luckily it was a local and he was just trimming the nub off to help get his piece growing vertically. Of course I was waiting in the bushes when he trimmed it and then ran with it.

Ty can make any Acro happy. All he needs is a polyp and a prayer.
Sounds like a great name for an acro vendor. Polyp and Prayer Aquatics.

Been wanting one for a long time now. Now to catch that dang foxface out who’s been munching on my BC Backdraft colony.

The Majestic and Regal Angels had better have permanent residency status, or you're in trouble! (Looking sternly in your direction whilst arms folded and tapping the ball of my foot loudly.):face-with-raised-eyebrow::D
