Hey bitts, I just wanted to thank you for keeping this thread going.

I am obviously very interested in the subject but have just been too burned out to do it myself, and I think it's thanks to your efforts that we now have a Macro Forum.

Couldn't have done it without you!! :flower:

Thank you.

 

But don't forget its you, maria & the other's. Posting the knowledge & pics. I'm still just a noob. Got into this so you guys could teach me a thing or two.

 

So again, Thank You every one.

 

Edit: stupid spelling.

All Hail the Ghost of MOO!!!!!!!!!

 

There that's better.

 

Speaking of learning. jere, seabass. Anything else we need to cover about seagrasses.

Nutritional content is strange when it comes to macros. Certain ones have proteins, others are high in iron, others this... Lee Birch has a good article on it. Most nutrition work done with macros regards temperate macros, they are larger/more abundant/closer to the parts of the world that publish in english and I only know one language etc..

I just found something very interesting in my 40b. Its in the sump and i want to know if it would be safe to try to remove him and put him in my 20 long macro tank.

 

From what i gathered from google its a "scutus" sea snail.

Are they macro and coral safe?

Are they invert safe? Pom pom crab, sexy shrimp and porcelain crabs as tankmates.

no they are horribly dangerous to everything ship him to me quick. :) Cool critter, I would let it eat all the macros it wanted. I think it would be able to cut through thinner macros, (scroll algae, ulva and the like, maybe gracilaria..probably not) but not sure. Let us know!

Thanks john! I am going to try my best to get him out of my sump and into the macro tank. I have flame, red titan, blue ochtodes, red spotted, money plant, codium, and 2 caulerpas in my tank.

 

What is the best way to get him out? Tried to get him off the glass with my hand(had a glove on) didnt work he just went completely flat..lol also tried a piece if plastic to have him crawl onto but he wanted nothing to do with it lol

 

any ideas? Its def a neat creature and black is my fav color, oh and he has an awesome white diamond on his back(his little shell)

 

will he be ok with my inverts?

Hmm, I'd be interested in hearing about this in greater detail.

It's funny, I'm watching this amazing special on Octopi and I keep finding myself paying more attention to the plants in their environment than to the Octopi. :lol:

Weets what are we going to do with you. Octi are scarier than most anything in the water. That blue ring down the street is going to learn of this & sneak up on you. then bite your toe while you sleep, cause you didn't show enough respect.

Oh you should not mock. They will hide in the weeds, for your hand to be in the tank. Nothing good can come of this.
