How are the kids taking the loss of the clown?
Sorry for your loss of Nemo. Having just had Murphy muck with me i feel your pain. This hobby gives so much enjoyment when things are rolling right and a lot of dismay on days like yours.
Heres to a lot more of the good days than the bad as tanks mature and knowledge increases.
You and @WallyB were talking about your mag feeder and I wanted to make you aware of the mag unit that Stratos at printed3d.parts makes. I was the one that got him to make something that would work with different holders. I am using it with a clip right now while I wait for the nori pouches BRS sells. The magnets are completely sealed in plastic and work great. I have a bunch of his stuff including the eggcrate frag rack holders.
You can see and order the magnet part HERE. And I have ordered the 2 little fishes replacement pouches from BRS HERE . I think the magnet would work with the holder you have as well
always sad to lose a fish or coral.
But, silver linings, here we find ourselves past post 1000! I wonder what your plan is
Super sad about your clown it always makes me wonder because they are always find the day before. How is the whole family doing, any plans on getting another one?
Sorry about your rough day.
The only thing I can say on the positive side, is if the clownfish was going to die anyway...... it's worse to watch them suffer. Especially for the kids....
And to cheer you up.....
I took my kids today to Orthodontist. His secretary has a bulletin board that they change each month or so.
Just cards, funnies, poems....Always a theme........ like Thanksgiving/Halloween this time.
Took this photo of a good one.
Got a chuckle out of it.
Thank you all for the kind words. It was a bit of a downer of a day, but for me and my night shift, it is now a fresh, new day.
To change the subject to something more positive I note that the 1,000th post milestone was hit! That was fast. Very fast. In fact I am barely prepared for it. 100 posts in 5 days. Wow. So without further adieu....

Thank you to everyone who has supported this thread for 50 pages! I wish I could send something to everyone, but when one reefer wins, we all win!
Stay tuned for more exciting news about the build thread expansion!
EDIT: I will present the expansion details just after midnight tonight!
very cool! When I saw I was the 999 post I was super excited thinking you were watching for the 1k post to snag it for the announcement! I think what you did was even more awesome! what a neat idea.
Wow, sounds like you had a rough start today. Sorry to hear about Nemo.
Sorry about the little guy.
I think it is amazing for you to do that giveaway. So many really great products to choice from.
There are a bunch of good people here
Thank you so much! Totally made my day! I didn't realize at all that I hit post 1,000 (although I knew we were getting close and was looking forward to the surprise). I PM'd you back with the info, but just so everyone else can know what I picked, the Hannah pH probe would be great.
This makes about the nicest welcome I've ever gotten on the internet
That is great @IgnatiusRath ! Thanks for playing.
The rest of you still have a chance for some free loot. I will be continuing to celebrate 1,000 posts by offering the rest of the equipment listed in a site wide RAOK offering (RAOK = random act of kindness).
I will post that at 9am sharp tomorrow, Halloween! Be on the lookout if you want to play. You can only take one item.
Thanks again to everyone making this thread awesome!
wow! what a guy haha.
now, where will you be posting this?
I'll be stalking your profile like it was the 20k giveaway!
I knew I should have kept posting 99 more consecutive posts to get to 1000, but that would be cheating.
Congrats to @IgnatiusRath
Interesting idea. I have some left over mesh material from making my Tank Top Net (to make a similar pouch).
BTW. When I posted that warning about the Gourmet Nori Feeder (that they rust). I emailed (today) the manufacturer this photo of my two that rusted.
My letter said...."have they improved their design and what could they do for me"
They replied back quickly saying new version is epoxy sealed, so no longer an issue, and they will be mailing me one replacement FOR FREE.
That's good customer service (even if something goes wrong with product).
Thanks @Fudsey ! I have several of their products including cuvette holders and a probe holder. Great stuff!
As this thread has grown large it has become difficult to manage. Especially for a guy like me who thrives on organization. If you looked at Post 1 in this thread, you could see some of this organization at work. But, that first post had become unmanageable. If I could start this thread over, I would do it differently. Since I cannot, I came up with this idea.
To better highlight the long term life of our reef, I have started a new thread to supplement this thread. The new thread will house tons of information and media and will exist as a companion to this main thread. You can see it here:
Caveman’s Ancillary Thread
That thread will not be for posting and conversations, but I will link to content there and there will be links to return here. I was not exactly all ready for this (the last hundred posts came super fast), but it is ready enough. I will now begin the process of fully incorporating the two threads. The first post of this thread will change a bit and much of that information will live in the new thread.
The new thread is just being constructed and it is and will continue to be a work in progress. There is some good content there now and it should continue to grow over time with the tank. Thanks again to everyone following along and happy reefing!
