  1. What is this??

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

  3. What is this??

    I'd flush them out of their holes with some seltzer water. They will get bigger and hungrier.
  4. 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.?
  5. April Picture of the Month - Invertebrates

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

    Thanks for the offer Kim. I have a generator ready. I just need to be home...
  7. 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!
  8. Live Brine Shrimp

    Family pet center (122nd&glisan) always have live black worms. Tell Glenn and Mike I said hi!
  9. 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?
  10. Gone

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

    Beautiful colonies Brad! As always... you sure have become a SPS master!
  12. 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.
  13. Tide pool!

    very cool!
  14. Tide pool!

    That's awesome! Post pics of the setup underneath.
  15. 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.

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

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

    Same. Just a baby. FWE will clear that right up! Hopefully the Goni grows right back over the skeleton. ?
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

    Amphiprion Ocellaris.
  22. My 1st attempt at raising clownfish fry....

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