    Snorkeling in Costa Rica?

    When I was down there last, I was told by my Tico friends to watch out for salt water crocodiles. I don't think it makes much news, but something to think about when in the water. Loved it down there, such a beautiful place to visit.

    Looking for anemones! What you got??

    I would love to trade a rainbow BTA for a green one if anyone has some out there.

    Midas Blenny/Ember Blenny?

    Yep, my two-bar rabbit and my twin-spot hogfish share nori everyday when he's not eating any spots of algae. Nori is an easy solution

    Midas Blenny/Ember Blenny?

    I have a tailspot blenny and they are not going to keep algae growth down... they just can't eat it fast enough. That's the reason I recommended the Rabbitfish I also have an RS 170 and if you can get a rabbitfish that is smaller, you'll be good for some time I feel.... but I've only had mine for 3 weeks now. I have no more hair algae though.

    Back at it... RSR 170

    My wrasse ate all my crabs too and I had green hair algae I could not seem to get under control, popped a Rabbitfish in there and he cleaned it all up in a week. I was able to get a smaller one knowing I will have to get a bigger tank later or find a new home for him if he gets too big. Best investment ever... just have to make sure I put out some nori now to supplement the shortage of algae.

    What do you do?

    Hi, I'm Jeff, I've been around PNWMAS for years now mostly as a lurker. I'm ex-military and have been doing programming, mainly web development for the last 16+ years. I work mainly on very large scale, high-profile web properties and government sites. I'm terrible at aquascape despite also have a degree in art and design, so if anyone is open to giving tips on how to better arrange the random rocks in my tank, shoot me a message.

    503reeflands introduction!

    Wow, that looks amazing. Mine has been running for over a year and looks nothing close to as fancy. You guys must have the touch, those are some great looking corals.
  10. I would like to be entered, thanks Kim!

    Anyone selling an RODI container?

    Maybe these are still available if those fit your need. http://www.pnwmas.org/topic/38713-55-gallon-water-barrels/
  12. Thanks Sean, I'm trying Seachem's Paraguard with my clowns in a QT. The directions don't give you much information other than the dosage amount per volume of water, so I'm going to do the 5-days of treatment as you would with other medications and see how they are doing. They survived the night and the first dosage, hoping for the best.
  13. I lost my Kole tang yesterday, and he had no real signs of disease other than a few white blotches on his front fins. Today, my Flame angel and clownfish have what looks like Brooklynella. I have called Cuttlefish, The Wet Spot and Pets on Broadway, nobody seems to have any formalin solution in stock. Does anyone in the NE PDX area happen to have some I can use and I will get you back. From what I have read, this will kill the fish within 72 hours if not treated and it's been at least 36 hours since the tang had signs of something wrong. If anyone can help, please IM me. Thank you!
