    The Dirté Crab Cube 50g SCA Starfire

    It's been a frustrating last couple of days with this tank's little brother, but at least I can come over to the SCA and watch happily. Make people have plate envy 😊

    Yoshii's Old School 2.5g Hawaiian Pico 🌴

    Hahaha that's a great question! Partly me being lazy but also this summer has been pretty busy for me. It's been a really hot summer so work has been extra busy (coral bleaching prep). And I've had a few mainland friends visit. I'm liking the Asta 20 so far, still playing with the spectrum, but I want to get PAR readings to finally my settings. Goby has a name now! I'm going on vacation to the Big Island for the next 10 days so I brought goby to work and I'm going to make my coworkers take care of him. They decided on a a very appropriate name 😂 I left the pico at home...since it's been so hot the tank has been reaching 84, even at night if the fan is off. So I took off the light and filter, and moved it to the coolest part of the room (the closet 😂) hopefully it does ok 🤞 I expect some high light algae to wither, but hopefully it won't be too bad 😬

    El Diablo has been moving around a bit more but I worry that he’s not eating great. Maybe he does it when I’m not looking too, though.

    He freaks me out when he does the red eye look.

    So accurate... Saddlebacks start out looking the best but turn out the ugliest imo, oh and don't forget oscar levels of aggression / destructive-tempertantrums, chiclid-like territorial-behavior, and a taste for human flesh you can't find outside of zombie movies.

    Coral viewing glasses?

    Lots of people use those to take their pics. 😊

    Hmmmm... I'm not sure if microdosing peroxide would be advisable with larger macroalgae, they would probably weather it just fine but you never know, spot dipping would be difficult too because palys and mushrooms HATE peroxide even if they can deal with it...

    Matt, if you would be so kind, please post a picture of the tank on stand with a common household item positioned near the setup, so that we might gain a perspective of the relative size of everything pictured. Thank you. Ps. Checked out your esty listing. Very interesting!

    Is this coral bleaching?

    I took your advise and relocated the favia to what I think is a lower flow lower light area of the tank. I have also slowly been lowering whites and total intensity. I have read that doing coral dip in bayer can make them more susceptible to bleaching. Dont know if that is true or not.

    Is this coral bleaching?

    I used Saxby settings on my 25g but I altered the percentages to my tanks needs. I went back to my own settings. I use ab+ but a bit customized. My whites never get higher than 17% and only for a few hrs then it drops to 10%. It may just be placement of the coral. Favia I have found like low light, my dragon soul is at the back of my tank where a monti cap causes shadows. When I had it in direct light, it did poorly. Also high flow areas, they don't like that which can lead to the same thing. Flesh being removed from the skeleton.
  13. Damsel will outgrow the tank eventually. The blenny stays small. The blenny has a far cooler personality.

    moving tank

    Any tank transfer I have done, I remove the water I want to use before disturbing the sand bed with moving rocks. Once I remove the rocks, the remaining water goes down the drain.

    Please help me stop killing corals

    Those types of bristles are not common. Common Bristle worms are a great addition to a cuc. Also, there is when a coral is unwell and or dying, it's a common occurrence to have cuc members cleaning up and get blamed for eating a coral.

    Coral viewing glasses?

    Would something like this work for coral viewing or do they have to be made specifically for aquariums to take out blue light?

    Heater to fit Nuvo 10 cube

    Thank you!
  20. The problem is that because he was in hiding, probably in the back chambers, he didn't get much light so coloring is off. I feel like his head is more the shape of the sharknose, but more the coloring of a neon. Anyway, I guess it doesn't really matter.

    Heater to fit Nuvo 10 cube

    It should be the same size as my peninsula 14 and I have a neotherm and a IM reactor in the middle chamber of mine

    125 gallon lighting options??

    that's why I was considering looking for used equipment haha but I'll definitely keep that in mind!

    Heater to fit Nuvo 10 cube

    I’ve been buying my equipment the past few weeks, but I’m stuck on a heater. It seems that some of the better rated ones are just too long/tall. I was considering the Cobalt, but it’s so wide, will it fit? Which compartment do you stick your heater in anyway? 😂 TIA!!!

    • Preventing Freezer Burned Reef Foods
      I feed a few different frozen foods and it takes a while to go through them, even with my heavy feedings. I keep everything sealed up and try to get all of the air out of the bags for the flat packed stuff, but I am still seeing quite a bit of freezer burn, even with the blister pack cubed foods. I think a lot of it has to do with the defrost cycle and the constant thaw/freeze cycles. The food seemed to last longer when I had a bunch of bottles of water in the freezer to minimize cycling.
       
      What does everybody do to minimize freezer burn with their frozen foods?
