  1. Only the prettiest urchin will do!

    That's a pretty spiffy urchin too BTW!
  2. Only the prettiest urchin will do!

    Have you ever tried doing a lugols dip on the Goni?
  3. Cooties!

    Same. Just a baby. FWE will clear that right up! Hopefully the Goni grows right back over the skeleton. ?
  4. Is my Skkye Lite 18 OK for SPS?

    Definitely doable. I've grown a few under the stock nuvo lighting but they really didn't "thrive" under that light. I'd try an AI prime or something with more color options. As mentioned it wouldn't hurt to try some easy SPS for the heck of it. Keeping Alkalinity stable in a 30g tank is going to be your issue if you want to keep SPS in there.
  5. So, this pair of A. Ocellaris has been in my care for 7+ years. They spent 5 of those 7 years in my sisters 65 gallon until they killed all her fish. They just started to spawn again in the last 6 weeks. They are spawning roughly every 2 weeks. Their home is a 24"x24"x18" cube with a 5'x18"x22" sump (roughly 55gal.). Here's a pic to get the ball rolling.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi Nikki!
  8. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    New format is much nicer for posting pics so I thought I'd share...

    Clam foot?

    Great post ⬆️
  11. Walking xenia?

    That's awesome!
  12. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Thanks. Mine were spawning after the 2 year mark but I couldn't see the eggs as they were in a reef tank with lots of rock. A good indication that they're ready is when they start attacking your hands and killing off tank mates.
  13. Need acrylic help

    Shoot a PM to "wanareef" AKA Charles. He's a good dude and fair priced.
  14. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Sorry for the lack of updates. Been super busy! All are doing well. I've lost probably about another 4 or 5 to accidental over feeding. They WILL over eat..... Most of them are 1.5" or bigger. I have a few that don't get a lot of food and are less than an inch. I have split the batch in 2 to help the smaller ones get food. The biggest get all the food... they're pigs! Here's a few vids, in the first one the parents were checking out their babies from what I can tell.... first time they've seen them. These are the small batch. https://vimeo.com/197650468 Here's the bigger guys. https://vimeo.com/197650525 One more of the smaller guyshttps://vimeo.com/197650566 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. FS: 1999 Ford F-250 7.3L Diesel

    Solid deal on that truck! I have an '02 F350 with the same motor. 325000+ miles and runs like a top! If it were quad cab I'd be all over it. GLWS!
  16. Blue star wrasse hiding

    Jet lag...???? Seriously though, most wrasses (especially leopards) take time to get used to the time difference when new. I don't know if there is any scientific proof that it affects them or not but every one I have kept has had to adjust to my tank schedule.
  17. Haddoni Carpet Anemones

    Mike beat me to it! Beautiful specimens alike! That gig is a monster! Great job sir!
  18. Heater

    Eheim-Jager heaters are the best glass heaters. Hands down. I've used them for many years even back when they were Ebo Jager... All of mine are run off of a controller just for piece of mind but are still accurate +or- 1 degree.
  19. Heater

    You need a higher wattage heater....
  20. 235gal rimless build

    Very cool BTW!
  21. 235gal rimless build

    Looks like it to me.
  22. Anyone use an elbow in sump

    If you oversize the elbow it won't harm the pump. If you don't you might harm it.
  23. Anyone use an elbow in sump

    I would use an oversized 90 with a reducing bushing. i.e.: 1" bulkhead use a 1.5" 90 reduced to 1".
