Hi everyone!

I saw the post on Craiglist and just registered!

If the dry live rock is available, I would like it.

I will also post an appropriate introduction in the correct forum.

Perhaps some of our freshwater members can join in and add to the prizes?

I'll do this for the freshwater folks... I'll add 8 lbs of Texas Holey Rock to the prizes. I have some of that and I know it's quite popular in freshwater systems. Cichlid Lover would be first in line.

Hey all just saw the Craidslist post and joined. I live outside of Bossier and would understand if I don't qualify for the free gear but happy to be here anyways and find people close enough that enjoy this hobby as much as I. But if I do qualify the red monto would be my choice heh.

Anyways good to be here.

I didn't put any stipulation on distance. As long as you're willing to pick up in Longview it's all good! :-)

I've got you down for a red monti frag.

Hey I'm newly registered and pretty inexperienced. I would like the green acro frag but I'm curious; is it easy to care for? Also, what kind of lighting does it need? Thanks for the help, I'm still learning.

It's an SPS piece. Best in tanks 6 months or older with low phosphates and in high light... Metal Halide, LEDs or T5 (4 plus bulb fixture). If you need an easier piece I'd suggest the superman mushroom.

Check the general reef section at the top for the "New to Saltwater" thread. Tons of good articles that really helped me when I was getting started.

Hey guys,

Brandon lives in Palistine so he's much closer to Tyler. Perhaps someone from the Tyler area could pickup his Holey Rock for him and take it back over his way when you're already making a Longview trip. If someone would be able to do that and then work out with Brandon a pickup in Tyler let me know! :-)

I've bumped the craigslist add to the top again. I'm going to keep this open until the 31st and then shut it down. Any prizes not claimed by then will go back to the person who donated them. If a prize has been claimed before then but not picked up we will hold the prize until a scheduled pickup date.

We still haven't had anyone from Tyler be able to take Holey Rock over closer to Brandon, so if anyone is driving would be able to help us move that closer to him let me know! :-)

I wish I would have known, Brandon came to my house and picked up some cichlids. I go to Tyler almost every week for Dr appts. I am in fact going tomorrow morning, but early.

Matt, when I find out when my next appt is I'll get back to you. I can meet him in Tyler with his HRock.
