wow, that is quite cool. im really facinated as to how you can keep your sponge alive given the fact they need high flow, just the opposite of what the horses like. how do you do it?

Thanks! Actually the tank is low flow and the sponges seem okay with that. Basically the biggest thing with the sponges, for me at least, is having to use a turkey baster to blow off the algae on them. I do this two to three times a day. I actually fell behind on that for a few days and now the finger sponge is on its way out. I'll get another one but it is that algae that gets all over the sponge and basically suffocates it. I also feed DTs for any one (any sponges) to eat as they filter the water.

Well you can buy one of the shrimp off me for $500 since that would be the lowest price for me to part with one. Or you can go to liveaquaria.com. Just know they only eat STARFISH.

Awsome tanks, it's really nice to see something different. Do not get me wrong, alot of people on this site of very nice tanks, but it is nice to see something out of the norm. What is the saying " there is more than one way to skin a cat". Look forward to future post.

Hmm, I thought they still had some. Check back in a few days to see if they get any more. I feed them asterinas and brittles every other day or so but they could go longer. One only eats brittles, the other eats both.

The harys are coral safe, just not starfish safe. If you're going to do harlys look up hawaiian harlequin shrimp. They are the coolest.

 

 

Also, everyone be sure to check out my reef tank as well:
