Kat's METROpolitan: Retired May 2018

Recommended Posts

We got 2 of those green monsters from Kat a year or 2 ago. I've already sold a dozen of them and still have a rock with 10 or so on it. I'm trying to get  some Cinnamon Palys out of Florida.

  I always liked rock walls, even when they were "unpopular". What's old is new again ... people say.   As Gina said, all people see are the corals..

  I've seen  arrangements by color that , in my opinion, look as good  or more interesting than gravity defying scapes.  Just a thought. Also sad to read about your previous loss, heartbreaking. Good luck on this new one.:flower:

Those grandis paylthoas are huge.  Any idea where I could pick some as large as yours? 

Yeah they are massive. I am not sure where to get them, you could try cultivated reef. I got them from a fellow reefer a very long time ago as a single polyp.

Glad to see colors back to normal Kat.   Thanks for the nice words in the feature thread, much appreciated.  :)

Thanks Mark! And I'm so happy for your TOTM.

Cat head looking intently in dish made me laugh.  The lion checks it out.  

The tiered steps are neat.  How did you accomplish it?

It's a drop-off tank - it came with the shelf built in.

I saw one person had blue grandis but they never responded to my messages.

Thanks. I prefer the less is more approach, but I can get carried away.

Thanks, something else to look for on our trip to The Keys, lol. I sent my friend down there an email asking about them. I get $15/pp for those green monsters.

I am needing some aiptasia eating peppermint shrimp. The one guy I still have from my purchase of 4 about 2 years ago is a free loaded. Never shows himself, never does anything useful, just eats my food. 

 

I need peps that are trained to eat aiptasia. Any suggestions for sources? Thank you

The first link is a booklet I read years ago.  But the lady that wrote the book has a bullwhip on the front cover.

 

The second link is a blog.  The guy says to starve them to eat Aptasia.   Put shrimp in qt with Aptasia rock.  Do not feed tank, until all Aptasia are gone, then give shrimp a second Aptasia rock.  After his second treatment, put back in display.

Hello people of the reef! How is everyone? 

Back from Reef-A-Palooza Orlando - amazing weekend.

It was great to meet everyone , old friends and new.

Met @Steensj2004 for the first time - wanted to eat his baby boy, good thing he didn't bring him to the show. 

Also Happy Birthday @StinkyBunny. :flower:

 

And I'm ready to move in 4 weeks to a new apartment!! egyptian.gif

Very excited! Debating on a new tank and the choice is between a Reefer 250 or a Reefer 350 - If you have one of these please post your FTS and also a picture of your sump/cabinet please. Thank you.

 

I'll post my thoughts for the reefer once I have my ideas cemented.
