Hey North Carolina

Hey everyone, I am new to just about everything (reef tanks, NC, forums). I would like to join Coastal Carolina Reef Keepers, but don't know how. I have had 2 different FOWLER tanks, and have my third set up and cycled. My LFS said I should join a local reef club for insight and hopefully cheap frags. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can about this lifestyle.

Many people in this area have migrated over to a local bb...which is more convenient than an email type board.

I live in Myrtle Beach in I've been into saltwater aquariums since 1999 I currently have 5 tanks at my house unfortunately we do not actually have a Reef club or anything here. There's been numerous attempts and no luck to trying to get everybody together and it never quite makes it and falls apart. Bruce, the owner of sea critter Depot in North Myrtle Beach hosted a few get togethers to try to get something going with not alot of luck. I live off of bypass 17 and holmestown rd almost in garden city. Wrlcome

Wink Hello MB Conway is in the house!

Hello from Conway, I had a beach house in NMB for years off 23rd ave s, then bought a house on 544 and finally moved to Conway to take care of my Mom, well she thinks shes taking care of me lol. Im glad to see im not the only person around these parts that has invested alot of money and time into these Reef Tanks. Maybe if this Live rock survives we can do some frag swaps. Anyways have a good one and keep on Reefin...

If you head down to north mytle beach, Sc. There is a small store called sea critters depot. He has a awesome selection of corals etc. You just need to make sure he's open, they are only open 4 days a week. Bruce, the owner is awesome.

Been there done that.

So, there I was searching for a depot of new critters of the sea and then I saw it. A tiny little shop that was the result of one man's overgrown hobby, Sea Critters Depot. Was this a wish come true? A miracle while on a quest for new things? Or just a mirage? The strange thing was that it was nearly the only coral shop around. They happen to be closed but since they were doing maintenance anyway I was allowed to browse the shop. Even through this shop is very small it took me 30 minutes to see everything and I still think I missed seeing everything. I could have stayed hours but I was in the area to go to the airport so...

What I could have done better was plan on buying corals that day. I have not been back since and I want to go again with a roll of twenties. The prices were very reasonable and if the inventory turnover is not very rapid there are some great colors and species to choose from. I was impressed that a large LPS was only about $40-$50 if I remember it right.

Benefits for shopping in this small shop. For one they know how long they have had a coral in the shop. They have been caring for those type of coral for a period of time and can tell you exactly what has been working for them.

I am a fan. I think it is a great concept that is often poorly executed. An example of poor execution is how the local shops in my area either do not invest in the proper care of corals (because they die in the shop) or the shop owner does not see the benefit of propagating their own corals, likely do to the first issue. Keep in mind that the two shops in my area have been in business for 10-15 years each. This is more than enough time to have propagated coral for the frag market.
