  1. Ive got several green toadstools that range from 3 to 4.5" across you can have for free. Eating up my frag space. Also have a bunch of 2-3 head kryptonite trumpets you can have if you like. Can also pull you off a piece of a nice branching GSP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Nudibranch eating birdsnest?

    Thanks Sean, nice of you. I'll let birdsnest lay fallow for a bit to let things pass but will take you up on that. Maybe pick up some at Holly's too during the next meeting since birdsnests over runeth in her system! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Nudibranch eating birdsnest?

    Update here. So I think the mysterious critters were actually polyps shed from the birdsnest. Every time I dip them they get a little more thin. Kinda makes sense since other acros, montis, and LPS are un affected. So may not be a pest at all. Maybe bacterial? Anyway all of my nice big birdsnest colonies are tiny frags now with the rest sitting in the backyard as yard art:( So I'll probably never know that happened to them but so far nothing else shows any symptoms so that is good. Picked up a nice melanarus from Woody's in qt now, so will have some utility fish pest control moving forward. It's a bare bottom tank and I put a Tupperware of sand in there for him and he found it within a day and sleeps there every night! I was pretty amazed. Coarser sand so it doesn't get kicked all over the place Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. The Reef Room Has Started... sort of...

    40 sf of frag space, sounds pretty awesome! Yea a work bench would be ideal. Have to have a place to set the bandsaw and park your beer when fragging away in the evenings. Is the sump in the layout for the frag tanks or your main display? Are all the frag tanks plumbed together? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I stumbled upon a good thread started by Jeremevans about wrasses in bare bottoms and sound like there are some options. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Nudibranch eating birdsnest?

    Well I did a big round of dipping and did a variety of corals to see what else these nudis have a taste for. Luckily only saw anything come off the birdsnests and surprised at how many are still coming off. I'll dip anything that is suspect a couple of times a week til I don't see anything come off in the dip, then keep going til I kill any that hatch. I'll take Bert's advice and frag or even toss the ones that are bad so I can get most of it out of the tank. Adding a wrasse is in the plan to keep things in check. Any other good pest eating wrasses that don't need a sand bed other than a 6 line? Sean says his green coris is good at grazing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They're so friggin small it's hard to tell. I thought this at first, but they are kinda frilly like a nudi. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I thought this might be the answer! Ugh. I guess I'll get on the routine dip train again. Do you think they are nudis? They are very small and hard to see even under magnification. On QT, as of about 6 months ago, every fish, snail, rock, or coral gets quarantined. I just need to get my system clean, but proving to be pretty hard. Thanks for the advice.

    That's in the plan as an ongoing option but it's a bare bottom frag tank. I'm in the process of making a screen top. Does a six line need a sand bed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I've had something wiping out my bird nests over the last month or two. The latest casualty is a birds of paradise. Over a week period the green tissue is all gone but still has polyp extension. It's now moved to a sour apple. I've been dipping here and there but haven't been able to ID them since they are so small. This is the best pic I can get through a magnifying glass. They are the size of a salt granule. Nowhere near the size of a monti eating nudi. Other LPS, montis, and acros seem unaffected for now. Any idea what they are? I got rid of monti eating nudis about 6 months ago by regular dips every 5 days for a month. I can do that on the remaining birds nest but wonder if I should dip other things too.

    I used this product on my old tank and it worked great. Only suggestion is to dose another 2 rounds about a week apart starting in a week or two. I had a resurgence after my initial dose and they grew back quite fast. Re treated followed by the two subsequent doses to hit any scragglers and haven't had any in a couple of years. The good thing about the follow up doses is you rarely see any die so no worry of the toxins like the initial dose. Any idea if this works on AEFW? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
