    Decap BBS Storage

    Hey guys. I am starting a 5g dwarf seahorse tank and I am having brine shrimp problems. I am able to decap the shrimp but I can not find proper storage info. Can someone help me on how the best way to store decap eggs and how long they last? Thanks. Richard
  3. In the pictures I quoted omg the spectrum looks perfect. They look so much like the prime,bit better lol. I did always want one though. But I fancy building my own lights lol.

    Fishless cycling question

    I went ahead and added more ammonia. The Dr. Tim's Aquatics printout I have that allows you to record the levels has the tank cycled at day 9 once the ammonia and nitrites are gone. I thought I got it off their site but maybe it's dated. Here's to more testing! Thanks again for the replies. Like I stated initially, there is so much misinformation it is nice to hear from people who have actually cycled an aquarium this way.

    Also, I’m worried the cloves could get a little crazy in this tank, and they are starting to try to spread... what do you guys think... should I move them to another tank?

    Nano Sapiens 12g - Ye Olde Mixed Reef

    Great and unusual fish for a reef tank. A few caveats though: They will find or make a burrow and tend to stay hidden during the day (will come out for food, eat for a few minutes, then back to the cave). They will come out and forage at night, so turning lights on all of a sudden will make them real skittish and likely jump. Eat everything, so a small tank will soon be devoid of pods, worms, collunista snails. Etc. (including Bristleworms). They have a whole lot of extra vertebrae for extreme lateral manueverability, so they can literally make a 180 degree turn on a dime (so cool). I didn't see any aggressive behavior towards any of my smaller nano fish, but I suppose something like a real small Eviota might be on the menu. I had mine for over a year. Due to larger size than most nano gobies and slower lifestyle, I would take a guess at maybe a 5 year or more lifespan. Those huge pectoral fins are likely used to corral swarms of benthic organisms like copepods and such. And ladtly, they have a huge range from Australia up to Taiwan (salt & brackish), so they are very adaptable.

    Heres a pic from today. Most corals are open. The nuvo 10 is a mess and dont have time to organize it. I am getting more coral tomorrow and should be here on tues. maybe need to just hang everything on the glass until i figure out what i have and where it all goes. I can tell you that all these hammers are going bye bye in the 5 gallon.
  14. Apparently I got a little over excited a couple weeks ago that my tank was about done with the cycling process. It's now been about 4 weeks and I'm still working on it. I just tested my water again after adding more ammonia to it yesterday and my nitrite is at about 0.2 ppm after 24 hrs. It's getting close now but still not quite there. I'm hoping by next weekend I'll be able to add a couple fish to it. Here's an updated pic of my tank for the contest. Nothing has changed yet but hopefully I'll have something to show off by next week .

    My gold colored acan keeps coloring up really nicely. While the polyps aren't huge, the colors are crazy. I've been slightly increasing light over the last month in the hopes of getting my birdsnest to color up. It does grow fairly quickly too. Sorry for the phone-quality picture.

    Tamberav's pico in 365 - the ocean has arrived!

    The tank is still cycling but have this little cute hasslets goby waiting for when the tank is ready for fish. He has been sitting at the LFS for weeks because the average aquariast doesn't seem to like the oddities.

    • Feasibility of Classroom Tank
      I was at a frag swap recently, and after talking to some members who were also teachers I was enticed by the idea of starting a nano reef for my middle school classroom.  I wanted to reach out to see if anyone has any experience or advice before I really commit to this.  I teach science and currently have a variety of animals and freshwater tanks...

    • Photosynthetic Gorgonians in Home Aquaria
      Hello fellow reefers! My name is Billy and I am a big fan of the beautiful, tree-like soft corals known as gorgonians. Despite their reputation as delicate animals that are difficult to keep in captivity, most photosynthetic gorgonians are extremely hardy, and some even make excellent starter corals for those just getting into the hobby. With this in mind I decided to create this quick and dirty guide to encourage more home aquarists to experiment with keeping these wonderful animals, as I consider them to be some of the most captivating and attractive corals in the sea.
