    Id help

    Anyone have an id in this? Some sort of mushroom i presume... It’s about 6” in diameter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Sorry to hear that. Clams are one of the trickiest animals we care for...just so tasty and tender! And yeah once they start to go, there is almost nothing u can do. Just be glad u only had one...i lost 3 tahitians to a bacterial infection if some sort, oh that was painful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Well, how is the clam? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah this is how they make babies, it’s always like they leave this super bright colored goop next to them. And then pop, month later baby or babies. Often they do it under their bodies, so we don’t even see it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Spot on here. Doesn’t make it right for companies to deceive consumers because they have the largest budget, but you are right...this exists in every industry...and only has progressively gotten worse thanks to consumers chomping at the bit for more of this exact type of content! It sure would be nice to have some place that was just brutally honest about all product reviews... But then those big corporations would be angry and would just hire a $1k/hr lawyer to shut them up... And then they’d start making infomercials like everyone else.... Tuning out.

  7. I feel like the next generation of reefers is going to have a mystifyingly difficult time de-bunking all the trash that is published(video or written) online.
  8. Maybe a minor aquascaping change....corals on top are getting HUGE and creating too big of shadows underneath. Good problem to have;)
  9. Thanks for the purty zoas Nate!
  10. I miss my T5 acans and lps! Great light glws. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I had decided 2-months ago that i was going to make my nano a top down tank, since it had turned into a 21 gallon farm tank...but, it just wasn’t quite what i had hoped...it looked dismal, and had about 80% coralline coverage. My arm ached just looking at the corraline. So i broke down and bought the flipper... 15 minutes later my water was cotton candy pink And today back to normal on the hobby farm: i was really impressed at how awesome the flipper worked. All my previous tanks were acrylic, so I’m new to the world of metal scrapers hahaha!
  12. Monkey, you may want to turn those lights on;) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. That looks familiar! If i had a bigger tank I’d be all over this! Undata is a beauty! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. great points monkey. I was a huge fanboy before all my individual components came out with their own controllers. Now I guess I'm in the middle too. My vortechs are one button on/off/feed/adjust. ATO and backups ran by Tunze controllers...Hydra lights controlled by their own app.... All wired to a DJ Powerstrip($20), so I click them on and off when I want to do maintenance etc. One button on off:) I agree though that you can do some pretty sick settings with an apex! And by far the greatest thing it has is the mobile warnings to let you know something is off....that right there is worth the money if you have huge money in livestock. But yeah, if you are just starting out, don't waste your money early. An apex is always something you can buy and add down the road...once you figure more important things out like Nutrient export, light, flow, temp.
  15. You guys still rocking these controllers? Any reliability issues? Oh, and anything special to know about removing the metal tip? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
