  2. Taiwan LFS

    I would have figured out a way to get that Emperator in my carry on luggage. That one is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
  3. Blue tang FS.

    have had this fish for 16 months. Happy and healthy! 3.5-4" $50
  4. Blue tang FS.

    Never. That's my favorite fish.
  5. Is the a sponge coral or eggs or?

    Definitely not clownfish eggs. Look like a sponge to me. I see two siphon intakes...
  6. T5 light end of bulb burnt need help

    My guess is that the lamp socket is only making connection on one of the pins on the end of the bulb. Usually if the lamp is installed incorrectly that can happen. It can also melt the socket and you could have a fire. A pic would help...
  7. Purple Cap Washed Out Color

    If it were my tank I would shorten the photoperiod to less than 12 hours and reduce the white channel to under 30% if your possible. If not, then turn all channels down to 30-50%. It looks bleached but puzzling as to why just the new growth looks normal.
  8. Clown Eggs

    If you aren't going to raise the fry then you won't need to do anything. If you do want to raise them, better get lots of sleep now. The first 3-4 weeks are rough. Try to get the pair to spawn on a tile or flowerpot. It is much easier than trying to scoop the fry out of your display.
  9. Clown Eggs

    Clown eggs look like this
  10. What is this??

    I would avoid getting any on your corals.
  11. What is this??

  12. What is this??

    I'd flush them out of their holes with some seltzer water. They will get bigger and hungrier.
  13. What is this??

    Eunicid worm.... seltzer water in the hole over a bucket may flush him out. How long have you had that rock? Looks to be a baby... under 2'. How many Ricordia did it eat? At least you know where it is.?
  14. April Picture of the Month - Invertebrates

    There's a RBTA is this pic somewhere....
  15. Powerpocolapse 2017!

    Thanks for the offer Kim. I have a generator ready. I just need to be home...
  16. Powerpocolapse 2017!

    Tree snapped in half 1 block from my house and resting on a power line. I still have power but I'm just a little worried as I have a batch of roughly 500 fry brewing in the basement. I have a genny ready to go but I'm stuck at work! Ugh!
  17. Live Brine Shrimp

    Family pet center (122nd&glisan) always have live black worms. Tell Glenn and Mike I said hi!
  18. Live Brine Shrimp

    Live black worms are great for getting picky fish to eat. Be sure to rinse them well, as they get kinda funky. Also, only feed a few at a time. They don't live long in saltwater and most picky fish will only eat them while they're writhing and wiggling. On the other hand Brad, I would stay away from live brine. Even with rinsing there is a good chance that you will introduce ich into your system by feeding live brine. Are you trying to entice a fish to eat?
  19. Gone

    I'll take it Scott.
  20. My acro collection

    Beautiful colonies Brad! As always... you sure have become a SPS master!
  21. ATO......how do you do yours

    I use a tunze ATO on my display upstairs and 5 gallon bucket/floatvalve on all my tanks in my basement. You are correct about tds creep. Bad idea to hook up your RODI to your sump float valve.
  22. Tide pool!

    very cool!
  23. Tide pool!

    That's awesome! Post pics of the setup underneath.
  24. Only the prettiest urchin will do!

    Lugols works very well on brown jelly disease. It's old school but it rarely fails me. Coral Rx Works great too but I have had much success with 40drops per gallon lugols dips on Gonis and Euphyllia. I'd say 75% success on bad infections.
