    Chris Goetz is hosting a Meeting!

    Location: Excelsior
    Date: August 13th
    Time: 1-6pm



    Do you want a pm for address or do you want to post it here?
    26215 Shorewood Oaks Drive
    Excelsior MN 55331

    Is there a limit to attendee's?
    No

    Is your meeting handicap accessible?
    Yes

    Will you be providing any refreshments?
    No

    Are there any specific parking guidelines?
    Park on street please


    Do you have any pets? (this is for members with allergies)
    Yes, a dog

    Are children allowed?
    Yes


    Please provide a short description of your experience in the hobby and any tanks currently running.
    This will be a "getting out garage sale" meeting.
    I've been in the hobby for almost 20 years and need to a break. It's been a long and hard decision but I have other priorities right now. I moved about 6 years ago and never quite regained interest with the tanks in the basement so I'm putting everything up for sale.

    Note- unfortunately there will be no running tanks to see. Instead I'll have many tanks for sale along with a garage full of various gear(new and used) I'd like to sale. You name it and I likely have it for sale.

    Yeah - I know... I fought it hard for a long time but I just don't have the time/energy to stay active with everything going on right now. I'm certain I'll be back in a few years... I'll just have to live vicariously through everyone else's tanks till then. :)

    I'll start putting together a list of items to give everyone an idea, but I've got a ton of stuff - from Apex to Veron's Corals of the World, can't think of any X, Y, or Z items at the moment. ;)

    RODI to skimmers, grow out to frag tanks, Halides to LEDs, chemicals to salt, frag supplies to band saw, VFD motors to wave makers, pipe to valves, reactors to regulators... oh my... I better get started. :(

    Does this count as a regular meeting? One where you could sign the log book to get member status?

    I've already gone the supporter route but curious anyways since I can make a Sunday meeting but not a Saturday.

    So there's absolutely now way I'll have a list... I can't believe how much stuff I had stashed away...

    The list would amaze you and annoy even the most understanding of spouses.

    A brand new Aquairum Plants co2 regulator, a volcano calcium reactor, and even a few bags of OG Southdown and new radiums. :D

    Plus pvc valves, fittings, scrap acrylic(sheets and TUBE for the DIYer), two part, and enough various bits and pieces to make Dirk jealous.:p

    I'm really hoping to have all this gone tomorrow so I'll be pricing everything to move fast.

    Thanks to everyone who stopped out today!
    It was fun visiting with you all and I appreciate you helping a hoarder free up some space.

    For those who didn't make it there's lots of good deals left and I'd like them gone asap.

    A perfect example is the RODI setup I'm asking $200 for - it's a 6 stage, dual membrane, setup with a booster pump, TDS meter, and a half dozen extra filters. This was over $500 new... Booster pump alone cost me $115

    Another example - metal halides - Lumenmax pendant with glass shield, 250w radium, and selectawatt 250/400w ballast. I have two and am asking $150 each. That's like 40% of what I paid for my all time favorite lighting setup.

    One more - volcano calcium reactor,korallin reactor for 2nd stage, full 5lb co2 bottle, 5 jugs of ARM media($30 each at BRS), and a bag of mag. $300. I paid more than that for the volcano alone... :(

    If you're interested, let me know. I'm contemplating hosting one more TCMAS sale an evening this week before I start posting stuff for sale online and Craigslist.
