Very cool!  Good luck with the baby horses Andy. Don't often see someone try and get their saltwater to look like that.

So cute!  How many did you get in this brood?

 

I think there were about 100, but they were born in the middle of the night, so most of them got shredded by my skimmer. I managed to save about 30 of them. Of those, I think I still have about 25 going on the copepod nauplii.

Do I need to do something to view the photos?  All I see is "Please update your account to see third party hosting".

What kind of coal is that growing out of the water?

It's the original Bali Green Slimer.

No, it is Photobucket. They want me to pay them to have access to all of my old photos.

Resist!  Well... unless you don't have copies I guess. :nooo:

Time for a reset on the Red Sea SPS tanks!

The Bali green slimers had grown out of their space, and I had some mushrooms growing over everything. I can't wait to start over with new rock work.

Now that's a bucket full of slimer!

Looks like you have nailed the fine details of this hobby Andy, the tank speaks for itself.  Nice work!

Wow - those colonies went crazy in there.  Obviously a very healthy tank!  Good luck with the reboot Andy - looking forward to seeing what you do.

I would definitely seek advice from Andy. He is a wealth of knowledge with tried and true practices and is always willing to take the time to share what he learns. The custom LED lighting he did on his Red Sea tank is the closest match I have ever found to my T5s.

Here's a blue shot of the seahorse tank. Gorgonians and ricordeas are going wild!

Brittle star spawning frenzy! These guys were putting out lots of sperm and eggs into the water, so I'd better do a water change tonight!

Tank RESET time!

I'm going to fill this tank with millies in about 6 weeks.

I'm also trying something different with fish. Got Goldflake angels from Colby. So far, they seem like really good algae eaters.
