Looks like a chiton. Good guy!

Double Gold star to you! Looked it up and that's exactly what it was. Good news- it loves low amonia and nearly zero nitrates, nitrites. Soooo my parameters must still be good. Bad news- I popped him out when I first saw him. He looked like a bad guy. Bummer. After reading up, they are really cool critters.

 

Upppppppdates ?!

I'll post an update today. I have some small things to move around and gotta scrape some algea off the back glass. :)

Looking through my phone I found a video from about a year ago. Took it while surfing in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Makes me miss the ocean. Amazing how you can sit on the beach doing nothing but remain totally content.

 

 

 

Watching this reminded me that I brought back the large white shell in the video. Took it outta the suitcase and boiled it. I'm nostalgic- adding it to the sand bed.

 

My father in law also volunteers as a diver to clean the Tennessee aquarium. He picks up the Tiger Shark teeth as they shed. I'm boiling a couple of those to add to the sand bed/rocks as well.

Same phone as me. I'll give it a shot. I'm trying to use my DSLR more but it such a pain to upload.

 

Thanks for the advice

Ha. I just lost my DSLR and never could get it right but it was from 2007 and it couldn't measure the white balance even. I don't do anything with white balance on the Samsung. Sometimes I only change the Exposure Value to -1 or -2.

Awe sucks you lost it! We got a new one to photograph our baby girl. My wife laughs because it's getting used as much as a "piece of tank equipment" as it is to capture little Caroline.

 

The Samsungs take nice pics. Better than the iPhone imo.

 

Your pics always rock btw. I always find myself in your threads

Oh congrats on your little one! Thanks. I'm still trying to get better also. The rock flowers in the 60g have the Maxpect and I can't make pics look the same as my 34g w/ the Kessil.

Thanks. Shes amazing. Love the Kessil. I'll have to read through your thread in more detail to see what you have with the RFA's. I've been debating a maxi, BTA or RFA. So many options. Only 20 tiny gallons

Welcome to Nano-Reef. There's a fair amount of people on this forum reefing with the Fusion 20. Awesome tanks with tons of room to upgrade

 

Make a build thread, would love to check your setup out.

I don't use my dslr much, mostly because I only have av50mm lens. Lightroom makes transferring pics to Flickr for example a breeze, plus you can mess with your photos either in Lightroom or Flickr.

Thanks. I hoping it looks nice when the sticks fill out. I'm focused on growth now. Once things show some beefy progress, I'll shift to focusing on vibrant colors.

 

Heading over to BRS tomorrow to pick up a Sicce 1.5 and an Ehiem Auto Feeder.

BRS is about 10 mins from my house.

 

They have two awesome tanks there. One a Fusion 20gallon and the other shown below.

 

Not sure the exact specs of the tank but I would guess its close to 125 gallons.

 

Its an amazing species specific tank. FULL of huge bubble tips and large black clowns. I would bet there are 40 large clowns in there. It looks like a cow pasture. Very awesome.

Does BRS allow you to just walk over to pick up your order? :P

 

I love their video of the construction and setup of the clown tank. Such a cool idea.

They do. I order online and then head in the next day to pick it up. Yesterday Ryan from BRS tv- also one of the owners- was there.
