  1. Oh how I miss this bulb combo! So nice for photos...real photos:)
  2. The snipping tool seems to work nicely within the site...I just tried it for first time tonight.
  3. Hi, I would like to trade this clown, he is a juvenille, about 1" maybe a little bigger, and just as cute as a button. Was hoping it would pair with another clown I have...but no luck. So for now, this little guy remains in his own little fish box:) Think small corals: acans, sps, zoas, etc. shoot me some offers...only thing I need at the moment is ATI T5 36" bulbs(blue), or 2-part dosing system(hand pump and dry goods BRS) . Here is pic from ORA site, I'll try to get actual pic tomorrow morning:
  4. pm sent. Where are you located? EDIT - I checked profile....Monroe, OR.
  5. You know you have it bad when you miss your tank and can’t wait to get home...while on vacation in France! Haha been there! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Sounds ready. You do have fish as well correct? Clams are filter feeders and appreciate a little ammonia from fish waste. What inverts and fish do you have? Clams are Tastyyyyy! I have always had better luck with medium size clams. TPA had some dandies a couple weeks ago. And i have seen some absolute gems at cuttlefish evert time i visit. If you do pull the trigger, just remember to test your parameters as clams have been reported to change the uptake of Ca in tanks...I never noticed a difference personally, but if your tank is smaller you may.

    SPS Issues

    What is your salinity at? How are you testing it? Retest with at least a 2nd source...if you are nearby i have three hydrometers i use. I’m not a fan of sps under 78deg. 78-80 is my sweetspot. Prob not your issue though. Are you using carbon? You should be. Gfo? This will help with po4...just dint overdue this. What chemicals are you dosing for Alk, Ca, Mg? And what test kits are you using? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Wait til your sps frags are growing and tank is stable. Clams are filter feeders so they don’t mind a little dirty water(fish waste...tha basic dirty water). The thjngs clams cannot tolerate: Predators!!! the list is HUGE for clam predators. Even fish that you would never think would bother a clam can! Inverts too! Unstable water-but if your sos are doing ok, clams should be fine! Ca, Alk, temp... Poor lighting-clams love intense light, the more the merrier. This isn’t really a problem in todays aquariums:) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
