Well we changed things up a bit, wife wanted her couch space back. My 125 a few posts up is for sale if anybody local is interested. Just recently started an IM nuvo dropoff to save some living room space.

Here is my 90 gallon. I knew I wanted a nice big tank... Now I just have to finish filling it. Got a long way to go and much to learn but I love it!

Just found this group on the site. Tonawanda transplant myself, been here since the end of September...feels like 2 weeks ago.

Victor, I found ARC recently, picked up a few things there. Some dry pukani, tonga branch ( they clearanced most of it out before the move which I missed), CUC, and for giggles a kupang damsel that unfortunately lasted 3 days. Didn't lose sleep over that one, as it was hamburger cheap and the rest of my fish suffered no ill effects.

Seems like nice and knowledgeable guys there, Ill be back.

Hi all! I just found this group and thought i'd resurrect this thread.
I'm in Cheektowaga, always looking for new stuff to fill in the Reefer Nano. Also thinking about a frag tank setup (don't tell my wife)
ARC is an awesome shop.

Anyone have anything they are looking to sell??

Nothing in particular. I like the lagoon style tanks, but would like a place to grow out some frags as well.

I live in Virginia Beach but I come up to the Williamsville/Clarence area for Christmas every year and I was wondering if there are any good local Reef shops to check out for Coral. I will be in town from Sunday until next Friday so if anyone has any recommendations for me to check let me know.

How are all my Western NY people’s doing in 2019? my tank has come a long way since I first posted in this thread. I’ll post an updated picture... Any chance anybody wants to trade some frags? Or if there’s any interest, we could do a hobbyist only frag swap/meet up sometime, what do all you guys think?

I get some from mystic corals in buffalo, some from wwc online. Some eBay from cornbread. I don’t have anything exotic. Tank is still new and I’m battling high nitrates.

Man I would love it if wny reefers could get together and have our own event. I've tried to suggest it to my lfs I help out. But the logistics are tough. I'd be game to try and set something up. Frag swapping and buying from other hobbyist is the best in my book

Agreed, there was a queens city frag swap back in April but I missed that event. At this point I would settle for even a couple of people getting together once a month to check out each other’s tanks and discuss topics.

Hi all fairly new here. Had been coming to the forum for a long time as a guest finally decided to get around to creating an account. If anyone is interested in attending the Flower City Frag Fest is coming up in October in Irondequoit.
