    How do these “high end” sps sellers get away with this!

    I do get a lot of request for picture under 10k-12k lighting. Now let me explain my point about this request. Who has spectrum analizer readily to measure the light spectrum for taking picture or even measure spectrum in a personal tank. Some also would say 10k-12k means a little more white. But again it is subjective to each own. Your little more white may not be the same as my little more white. Do you follow what I am saying? It is very difficult request to follow because no one can be certain what is picture under white lighting or under 10k-12k mean.

    True, without own or see the coral in person we can only assume that coral posted is off the scale in saturation even when it is obvious. Most of the time taking picture under deep RB would get that result even without playing with saturation button.

    I wouldn't keep coral under white only light either, so I don't get the point of asking for picture under white light when most reef tank not white light dominant

    Regardless how the picture look, wanting to provide review need actual coral to compare otherwise you are comparing apple to orange then the argument will be mute. If you never bought the corals in question then you don't have a right to say good or bad just my 2 cents. I actually have seen BigR monti in person at show and it is look like that under deeper royal blue ligthing or under kessil 360WE

    Potassium Chloride

    For red bug and monti eating nudi need to dip 30 minutes Monti eating nudi is most difficult to eradicate, it will only stunt this parasite even with pure bayer solution. KCL dip allows us to dip monti 2-3 times a week without any problem with the corals to get rid of monti eating nudi. The nudi will come out and easily pick up with twizzer or blow off

    Is there anything else I can do to fight aefw?

    Jason Fox use t5 blue+ as the primary grow out light and color up using reefbrite blue stripe. If you want to run MH for 4-5 hours like he does, make sure you have enough t5 blue +, t5 actinic and reefbrite blue stripe for 12-15hrs photoperiod

    A lot of us usually miss the void space between the base of the acropora and rock or frag plug, it is the most likely area where eggs deposited and out of sight. If you see worm/s flying out from a colony make sure you cut at the base and dip. Clean and scrap the spot it was on before placing back the colony with new epoxy and glue.

    Indo coral and anemone export ban!

    The word ban is not the correct word to use. Ever since Marine Resources and Fisheries Department established by the new Indonesian goverment, there has been overlapping regulations that the coral export association can always work it out. In this recent situation, Quaratine Office that issue Health Certificate had been under Management Authority for wildlife which is Department of Forestry. With recent establishment of the Fisheries Department the QT office now under the management of Fisheries Department. As of Wednesday 5/2, under the direction of Fisheries Department, QT Office will not issue Health Certificate or Domestic transportation permit for all corals and anemone. Without HC live cargo will not able to load as airlines cargo hence no export can be done because of no HC. Also exporter can't receive the supply from collecting station because no domestic wildlife transportation permit issued. Many people over reacted and interpreted this situation as a ban. However, what I have known from past experience government office will kill current procedure/s abruptly just to replace with a new one that will align with the decision and control of both Fisheries & Forestry Department. As of now Forestry Department acting as Widlife Management Authority of Indonesia continue to issue cites permit base on current year coral quota, anemone do not need special permit just like aquarium marine fish. For the time being we only can wait till the new procedures established to resume coral and anemone export.
