Thanks.

shoal grass usually is beat up in drift, star grass usually doesnt show up in drift until the boaters start taking to the waterways in earnest. The seagrass beds themselves are massive and easy to find, but I am not allowed to dig it up, you have to wait until it is in drift and that is when it gets tricky. That is why we dont carry turtle grass...it is super abundant, but it never shows up with roots in drift...never..maybe I see one viable piece per year.... I usually find star grass around this time of year when the boaters are out, but have medical issues so I am not collecting, I spend my time lounging at best now. :)

 

i do have some items not on the site now though, like 8 different gorg species and oxynoe slugs breeding, some decorative starfish that dont clean but look cool, box crabs, sponge decorators, hermits of every size up to a footbal, encrusting gorgonians, GSP, frogspawn frag, hammer coral frag, a species of birareum (sp?) that a member gave me that started as 1 sq inch and now covers 2 sq feet lol.. I should do a spring cleaning of my hobby stuff now that i have the extra time.

Awww... licks lips on gorgs... (this site needs a lip licking smiley LOL)... need get more stuff to justify shipping... hopefully you'll still have photosynthetic gorgs by the time other macros and grasses start appearing.

 

In the mean time - rest up!

 

Btw, anytime you want to trade places with me John, let me know. I'll trade you my free healthcare for your warm weather, beaches and bikini clad slim women etc... any day. :happy::D

Hi John,

 

How about carrying photosynthetic gorgonians on a regular basis? Just wondering.

 

Thanks.

the Keys are nice, I will be heading there in May/June :)

 

Since this is an open ended titled thread what other items would you like to see in the store? inverts only..

 

Photosynthetic gorgs...did anyone struggle with the non-photos? the purple rod seem pretty hardy to me. Nothing too slimy is my rule with gorgs, I have corky finger gorgs for the penny gorg this week, or at least some, and i think it is about as slimy as i would like to go.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeettttt!!!!!!!!!!!! That's a sh*t load o' tanks to maintain! Centralized plumbing?

Don't get your bandages wet!! ;) Take some pics man and post them up! There are may of us who'd love to see the places in the Keys you travel to!

Yarrr! I intended this thread to be open to suggestions by everyone else so that you can get a better idea of what people are interested in etc.... and in the hopes that you'll get stuff we're looking for too! fingerscrossed:D:D

 

Though I really like the look of non photo gorgs, I can't ensure that I'd be able to feed them on a daily and sometimes even weekly basis. To my surprise, I've found photosynthetic gorgonians to be quite hardy in the aquarium and don't require daily feedings! At times I've gone up to 2 weeks with out feeding them anything to no ill effect! I've even noticed significant growth on one that's been neglected off and on - LOLZ.

 

Besides photosynthetic gorgonians, I'm also interested in sponges. Both the photosynthetic kind (new to me - never knew that there were such a thing!!) and non photosynthetic sponges. There are other things... here let me make a list:

 

1) Photosynthetic gorgonians

2) Sponges - both photo and non photo types

3) Rock anemones

4) Ricordea/ mushrooms

5) Zoanthids

6) ... heck, why dont you just carry the entire Caribbean LOLZ. :lol:

 

I'll list some of the species of photosynthetic gorgonians I'm looking for later. There is a good chance I may be traveling to Boca for a few days in mid May so hopefully you'll have some of these at that time. :)

That's a pretty cool setup! Definitely looks ready for collection, cataloging and sorting :).

 

I've a question - what are the scientific and common names of the gorgorian picture you posted? Is it photosynthetic and are you going to sell it? If so - I'm calling DIBBS on it right now! LOL.

 

One of the photosynthetic gorgs I'm looking for is Muricea elongata - a nice orange specimen. Ever seen those around? Thanks.

i have seen those, i can buy them too i can probably order some by next week. we gave some away as penny frags recently

 

that is a NPS called a regal sea fan. the common name should get you to the scientific name, it is a widely accepted common name. I should have never sold that one^ I felt like it was easy to care for and really popped, it was the center piece....when i get back out there i am going to replace it i think. t

Cool! I probably won't be ordering until early to mid May (if this trip goes according to plan...), hoping you'll still have some by then.
