    Snowflake Eel

    I have a huge 1.5-2 foot snowflake in my classroom tank. It is suppppper popular with students and really cool to watch. Shockingly, it hasn't touched the chromis I had in the tank before it arrived over a year ago, figured they would be goners pretty quickly. It has been a great addition to the tank but definitely do get a top.

    Kind of a sad day

  8. I wanted to give a huge thanks and shout out to Jeff at Cuttle Fish! To many of you, this will come as no surprise, but Jeff is one the nicest and most generous individuals and business owners I have ever met. I came into his shop a few weeks ago to investigate drilling a new tank for my high school biology classroom. Jeff did one about a million times better and offered to donate a 105 DSA tank, stand and canopy. He even delivered the tank and help hoof it into my classroom, it was a heavy beast. I couldn't be more impressed, thankful, and ecstatic to get the tank going! I'm going to get the tank up and running over the next few weeks and will post more pictures of its progress. Link to tank picture If you have not yet visited Cuttle Fish & Corals, please do so as you won't find a better shop and nicer owner. If you have been to Cuttle Fish before, please continue to support such an outstanding local business.

    Is there anyone that would be able to help move this today? Robbie has to have it gone by this evening. I don't have a vehicle to get the tank, 8 feet long, from Salem to Tualatin. If anyone is able to help out we could put this great set-up to further use in the classroom.

    Myself and Kelly at Tualatin high would be really interested in your old set up Robbie. We've been wanting a set up to do experiments with our marine biology and IB biology students. Robbie pm me if you still have it and want to get rid of the tank

    nuvo 20 gallon

    I had the 9001; it may have been able to squeeze into the back middle chamber on the 16 but it would have required probably splitting the y outlets and using two pumps instead of one and some further modifications. I think the 20 has a slightly larger chamber so maybe it will fit yours. Sorry, I returned it

    nuvo 20 gallon

    I have a Nuvo 16 and the Tunze did not fit unfortunately. I picked up a small cabinet at ikea and it fits perfectly and is pretty stable. Just sit on it at the store to make sure it will hold up

    Classroom Tank Help/Suggestion

    Lights are up and on! Set-up for a month long acclimation to avoid coral killing. Picture (Tang thought it was feeding time and couldn't help moving around). If anyone has any beginning sps frags they would be willing to part with for the classroom tank please let me know! Thanks again to anyone who helped out.
  23. Hi All, I'm a biology teacher, also at Tualatin High, and am in need of some suggestions/help. I have a 75g reef tank in my classroom with lots of happy fish and lps that I started about four years ago. It is extrmeely popular with my biology and IB Bio students and a great addition to my classroom. At the time of starting the tank I didn't plan to add a lot of coral, but now after being in the hobby a while, would really like to add sps to make a complete reef. I made the unfortunate decision of buying a marineland reef led light that I got on sale when I first started and am now limited in what coral I can grow. I'm hoping someone can help with suggestions for led lights that would allow me to grow sps and on a near non-existent budget. Thoughts, suggestions, donations would all be greatly appreciated! Thanks for the help, Dan

    Classroom Tank Help/Suggestion

    Success! Thanks to some generous donors I was funded, and just received, two Hydra 26! I'll have to get a control and rack. I'll post some pictures once everything is up and running. Thanks everyone for the support!

    My yellow tang got ich a year ago. Immediate quarantine and treatment for about a month, kept in 10 gallon quarantine for a few weeks after no visible sign. Worked great and he's healthy pig now. Obviously don't add copper to your main tank. I usually soak food in garlic now to be proactive; haven't had another problem since.
