Roger’s Reboot

oops, last time you were home

I was about to say. I thought you knew something I didn't. Hahaha

SLC has some nice views at least. Also, squatters pub in terminal C is decent, pretty good by airport food standards. And the beer is good too.

Very true. I didn't get a chance to stop in that pub. Maybe when I'm there again I'll check it out.

Just a little food but as often as possible should do it without switching lights IMO. It's those tiny little mouths, always wanting to snack.

 

I mixed reef roids with RODI in a dropper bottle for my smaller tank, just a squirt every morning and my Orchid stylo regained color. All LED.

 

My theory with lighting is that LED actually does a better job of providing full spectrum lighting so the food demands rise as well. LPS are unaffected based on how they feed. Big mouths, longer digestion periods, and can do fine with larger feedings that are spread apart, like most of us normally feed.

Of course they are. :) Better job does not mean they are better for SPS IMO, I prefer T5+LED mix,

they may be better, but as of right now the "BEST OPTION FOR SPS GROWTH AND COLOR" hype is boosting up the prices of those lighting systems. No one will ever convince me that a T5/LED hybrid is worth $1.2K+ that's just overpricing for something that the companies know customers will buy.

Nice pictures Roger

 

thanks babe.

really glad to see your tank recovering!

this time last year I was gonna get frags from you and your found those pests right beforehand! Kat helped me out and her katropora has been doing very well in my tank since I got it from her last year. Colored nice, greener than yours (assume due to less light), but I have been feeding more recently and its growth is finally starting. for a while it just encrusted but is finally sending up branches.

 

Happy Holidays everyone! I haven't been on in a long time, busy life, wedding in six weeks, but I am glad to see the regulars are still around and that this tank is still going!!!

Thanks! and yeah, my kat is getting less light than it was before, but after my tank crash the last thing I wanted to do was blast it with light again.

 

Congrats on the wedding!

thanks guys!

I'm about togo pick up some sps since the filefish is nipping at all the zoanthids. I voted to take the filefish back after the aptasia have been neutralized, but my mom would rather have the fish than the aptasia. That's okay with me since I don't really like zoanthids anyways.

 

any idea on what that mystery acro is?

changed the scape ever so slightly, fragged the kat and the hammer, and picked up a pretty decent sized SPS colony for $0.

 

I have some pics uploading, more pics when the bubbles and coral goo slime are gone


The new SPS, any idea what it is?

I'm terrible at identifying SPS but it looks pretty! Especially for $0 :D

 

But I know for sure the katropora looks awesome!
