Anybody else fired up about reefing lately? I’m actually down in the tank room cleaning, sweeping, throwing junk away! Trust me it’s hard for me to throw stuff away! Ha!

What about you?

It’s about reefing season again!

I'm waiting on Papua New Guinea opening up for corals

You know, it's strange that you should ask that. I'm always attentive to the tanks, but it seems lately I'm more into every aspect of the hobby. I've set up a couple of projects and even considering a new tank for the wife. Is it just the time of the year?

Always up for reefing! Next couple months are busy times coming up. Local swap first week of September and RAP Chicago in mid October.

@revhtree, are you coming up to Chicago for RAP?

With our recent move, all the new neighbors want to come over and see what "the blue light from the living room is"
I wouldnt say I've lost my spark, but it's definitely made the spark bigger :)

You know my LFS is a mom and pop local guy and he told me that summer is very slow for salt livestock and is the only reason he stocks freshwater fish. I never thought of the hobby as having a "season", but perhaps it does.

Definitely getting more enthusiastic. My remaining SPS (dino battle) are now recovering rapidly and the new SPS (Bubble Gum digi, green acro) are growing well. LPS is happy and zoas are doing well.

I think it's time for a big order from Battle Corals next week! Next Saturday is also our local clubs biggest meeting of the year called Reef Fest. We will frag 4 large colonies and everyone will get their choice of 3 frags. Fun day.

I'm counting the days till my tank life support will not depend on my ac! Also looking forward to reasonable electricity bills
Opening some windows for PH bump! Can't do that now, it's 110 with the heat index! :mad:

I'm kinda in the slumps. Dealing with another dino bloom 5 months after beating them. Just hope the losses with sps are less than last time. Really bummed about it cause rap Chicago is right around the corner. Hope I get everything in order so I can pick up some new coral by then.

I definitely am fired up about MACNA!!! I have several fish related projects that I am holding off on until after MACNA.
I personally would like to hear some news from focustronic about what they will come out with.... waiting patiently for an expansion of automated testing equipment.
