    Found fish fry in filter sock.

    In the tank I have 2 yellow tangs, 4 carbarryi anthias (all female), 1 lawnmower blenny, 2 leopard wrasse (female), yellow tale damsel. Its a new tank and all the fish are new so maybe one was shipped pregnant and I didnt notice.

    Update- Decided to turn some rocks over today in the sump to see if either of the fry survived. To my surprise one has, and it seems to be thriving as he is now around 1 inch. Does anyone have any idea what he is? Based on the eye position and overall body profile I do not believe it is a blenny anymore.

    Good Thermal CPU fan controller for the summer.

    35 On Amazon / their website. There are cheaper CPU fan controllers made for computers, however, the first one I tried out didn't allow for temperatures below 100F.. but this one will go down to 32. Good to know, thanks for the recommendation.
  4. As the weather is warming up, so is my tank! I ended up buying this "coolerguys" thermal CPU fan controller that will turn the fans on/off inside the stand/ cabinet depending on the temperature. Just wanted to do a quick shout out to anyone thinking about building some fans into you stand for ventilation and cooling, this little controller does a pretty good job! I will be adding more fans in the future, for now, I just installed 3 fans that will blow across the top of the tank/lighting and keep the hood area cool. At peak hour my T-5's are on and the LED's are running in the 75% range. Before installing the fans inside wooden cabinet door was getting into the 90-degree range. After installing only three fans (Which are rated at 60cfm each) nothing inside the hood (except for the lights itself) get above 78~.

    You may have a full inbox or something I also can't seem to send PMs, feel free to send me one. Was wondering if you would be available tomorrow evening I'll be sort of heading that direction anyway and am considering making a detour to check out the nems.

    May Meeting May 12

    I've got a question regarding the rough timeline of the meeting, when will the gold torch group buy / raffle happen? Will they happen earlier or later in the meeting? I am trying to weigh the opportunity cost of showing up on time, versus a little later and more time up on Timberline.

    What SPS questions do you have?

    Best reactionary procedures for common problems like STN, RTN, Coral bleaching, and even color fading.

    Found fish fry in filter sock.

    Yeah , I am not really prepared for it. I will probably just release then into refugium, and take steps so they can escape the fuge. Theyll have unlimited amounts of pods and algae down there.
  14. Today I found my lawnmower blenny along with 2 fish fry in my filter sock. Although I am unsure what type of fry they are based on body shape and proximity I believe they are also blennies. Not entirely sure how much effort I am willing to put in for these guys, what kind of food will they need? Anyone have any experience in breeding lawnmower blennies, what kind of chance for survival do these guys have?
