    Berghia Nudibranch

    Is there anybody breeding these locally or know of any stores that carry them. I'm having an infestation of aptasia on the shells of my clams and no matter how much I scrub them, I can't get rid of them. I've heard great things about these creatures but they are pretty expensive to ship an adequate amount of them. Thanks.

    The dangers we face are finally made known

    From what I have read, bleach will neutralize palytoxin. I have a few rocks with protopalys on the which are the most toxic and I plan on soaking them in bleach and then I'm going to throw them away or bury them.

    Bubble algae

    This won't help in your situation but the product Vibrant from Underwater Creations rid my tank of a major bubble algae infestation. There is a huge thread about the product on R2R.

    Cuttle Fish and Corals First Coral Auction!

    This is very confusing. Each item should have its own thread.

    Sundial Snails

    That's what I was thinking was probably the case since most of the threads on the snails were several years old. Please keep me in mind if you happen to come across any. Thanks.

    Sundial Snails

    Anybody happen to have any sundial snails that they haven't killed? I know they eat zoanthids and palys and I would like to see if they are successful in ridding some rocks of some seafoam palys. If anyone has some of these pests come in on their zoas or palys, please let me know.

    I'd even consider zoa eating nudibranchs.

    Need an ID

  9. I am looking for decent sized pieces of almost any staghorn shaped acropora. Thanks.
  10. Thanks for the recommendations, I'll check out ATA. Higher Thinking, do you have some fairly big size pieces/branches of the blue tipped slimer or others?
  11. I have several used 250 watt metal halide bulbs that I want to part with. They are mainly Radiums but there are a few others mixed in as well. If you can pick them up on Sunday they are yours, otherwise they are going to be recycled.

    WTB: Ritteri (aka Magnifica) Anemone.

    Haha, not a chance. That anemone hosts a female orange and a male black and white ocellaris clown fish that have laid eggs every two weeks for the last 9 years and has survived several crashes that have killed off most other livestock. It has actually kept me from leaving the hobby several times.

    I've got an 11 year old mag that has attempted to split twice but never completed the process. If it ever splits, I'll let you know.

    Light fixture

    Please give us more information on this light. What brand and wattage? Is there a hanging kit?

    Tank cycle

    I'm sure I have some API test kits for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate around here somewhere as well as some Fritz ammonium chloride to kick start that cycle into high gear. Let me know if you want to grab them.

    want to borrow rubbermaid stock tank

    I've still got mine and you can stop by anytime to grab it. It's been outside undercover so it probably just needs a good rinse.

    Please put me in line for either one. Thanks.

    January Picture of the Month - Clams

    That was taken under a cheap black box LED with only the white channel on. When the blue channel was added, it looked more brown with green highlights.

    Berghia Nudibranch

    I can get get 20 mediums for $175.00 but only want about 10. Is there anybody that wants to split the order with me? That works out to $8.75 a piece and they normally sell for $17.99.
  25. I've finally decided to sell my 24", 8 bulb, dimmable ATI Sunpower T5 light fixture. I am the second owner of this light. The light was originally purchased in December of 2015 from Cuttlefish and Corals. I believe it was only used for a few months due to some tank issues before he sold it to me a year later. I used it for about six months and then had a tank crash and lost all my SPS so I threw on a single Radion to save electricity ever since. It comes with the following bulbs installed in the fixture: Blue plus Coral plus Actinic Actinic plus Coral light new generation Actinic Purple plus Blue plus Also included are another purple plus, 2 coral plus and 4 blue plus. I made the mistake of not marking the actual usage on each bulbs so they have anywhere from 12 months of use to less than a month. Because I don't know the age of the bulbs, I'm going to price it as if it needs new bulbs. If you have a PAR meter, you may be able to get many more months of use out of these bulbs. The fixture is in excellent condition and everything works perfectly. It comes with the hanging kit and original box. Please take a look at the pictures and let me know if you have any questions. I'm asking $300.00 or best offer. Thanks for looking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
