    September Meet and Greet at Molokos

    Believe it or not, that awful pun about the Nintendo being a "game-changer" was totally unintentional.

    September Meeting Frag Swap 2018

    Super excited about this! I'll have a whole bunch of stuff available for trade, including but not limited to: Upscales Rose Stylophora ORA purple Stylophora Jason Fox Hulk Leptoseris JF Jackolantern Lepto JF Moonstruck psammacora Golden basket watermelon psammacora Golden Basket Pot of Gold (name?) Lepto red/purple green eyed war coral LA lakers turbinaria RR Nauti Spiral Monti (lil frag) JF highlighter orange pavona and many more... For trades, I'm hoping for equivalentish items. These days, I'm leaning mostly toward corals I can see from across the room, as my friend Kate would say. These will all be available for sale as well. And I've got loads of free softies for everyone!! Please try to bring your own reusable container, if possible. Sorry about my lack of photos. I keep forgetting to bring my camera into the bar. I'll attempt to get a few up tomorrow.

    Ah. I just saw there's another post about the swap! Anyway. We're stoked to be having all our aquarium friends coming over! We also have classic Nintendo & Super Nintendo available for your enjoyment, which might be a new addition since your last visit. It's a real game-changer. See you Saturday!

    I believe classified posts still need prices, correct?

    And high flow is no problem. They are strong swimmers

    I've kept them for a long time. Mine have always picked at duncans, acans, clams, trachyphillias, chalice, etc. They have never gone after my big pearl bubble coral. I wouldn't trust them with most really fleshy corals & they might or might not eat your zoanthids. Favias have generally been ok. Eventually they will nip at your clams if they don't do so immediately. I really really like them in sps tanks. They are neat fish to watch. I have had about 5 over the last ten years & currently have 2. I have one that I move from tank to tank & pull once she starts really damaging the lps which hopefully happens after she has cleaned out most of the aptaisia. I have a tank that has none of the corals they like in it, so that tank has one in permanent residence. Cuttlefish should have one, I imagine. I know Seahorse had one recently.

    Is there anything else I can do to fight aefw?

    The main points I took away from it were: 1. If you dial the white/multicolor array down on cheapish LED's, they don't produce the right color spectrum. So you have to run them almost full blast. 2. You should have the white/multicolor array on for only 6-8 hours each day. (Jason Fox does 6) I'm sure there's more, but those were notable changes from what I'd been doing before.

    This was the most valuable advice I've heard in years. I immediately changed my settings. Thanks Rudy!

    Is there anything else I can do to fight aefw?

    I think many people have aefw in their systems without realizing it. It's so easy for some flatworms or eggs to find their way in on a rock, frag plug, even if the rock isn't attached to an acro. I think everybody should take a Maxijet & blow off their acros every so often. Many would be surprised, I suspect. This guy who had a tank of the month on Reef Central awhile back swears by this method. He says he's fallowed & dipped & "eliminated' aefw a few different times, but they always make it back in. So he just blows them off periodically & keeps a lot of wrasses & everything grows well & stays healthy. https://reefbum.com/pests/dealing-with-red-bugs-and-aefw/
