This is a pretty cool thread. I’ll have to see what I got. I know I don’t have much spare equipment right now.

I like the idea. I have quite a few things that are laying around, just not sure they would really be of any use.

I am going to be building out a cabinet system for my fish room soon so I will plan on doing an inventory of items laying around that I don't use and put a list up just in case someone can get use out of any of it.

I once sent a brand new Red Sea foundation pro test kit to a user here. I didn't charge for the test kit and even paid the shipping. I didn't even get a thank you!
I am sorry that you didn't get a thank you from them. It's nice of you to have done that. I am a nurse and I have been building a reef tank for my long-term residents with whatever I have been able to scrounge up. I know I would have thanked you a million times over. I recently went to a coral expo and was able to get a few corals at great prices and I made sure to thank every person That helped out. Everyone was so nice and willing to help build something that would make some elderly people very happy.

I just fragged this green star polyp into 4 pieces. One went back into my display, and the other 3 need homes. It is pretty, but not a very desirable coral. Still, I can't bear to just toss it.

I've never shipped a coral, but have packing materials from some I have received that I could use. I'm not sure I can swing the entire shipping costs, but if someone is interested, I can see what the actual cost would be and we can figure it out from there.

Actually, I am a bit embarrassed. I like to help; it sounds like I did it for the accolades. I do it for the good feelings I get having put a smile on someone else face. Sorry.

Don't be embarrassed. I understand when we help out we don't expect a thank you. But it's nice to hear from the person you helped out. A thank you is the least you should get.

Not sure that would be enough lighting for the 13.5 gal nano but I appreciate the offer. Anything is appreciated.
Agree but up for offer for anyone that needs it. I’ll check my other stuff tonight for things to fit the 13 gallon.
