Mochi's Sushi Bowl - Now a sushi tub.

Recommended Posts

Hopefully going to keep this updated for my sake. I used to have an old thread on here about a fusion 20. It's been a while. Upgraded to a Reefer 250 when I purchased a new house.

 

The thread will be named after my little brat of a shibe, Mochi. The sushi reference is when he decided to eat my McCosker's flasher after it jumped out.

 

The tank.

They're definitely different from any other dog breed I've owned or interacted with. To say they're independently minded is putting it lightly... But they're so fun and full of character!

 

Tank looks great. I frickin' love shibes! Somischevious.

I posted in the main thread on fluconazole, but here's the latest update on my fluconazole dosing to combat bryopsis. I dosed 1200mg all at once. I'm 13 days into the treatment total, but all visible signs were eliminated by the 8th day.

Very nice tank.

Like the purple colors!

 

Thanks. Still trying to figure out how to get a better real life representation in my photo. The reds seem oversaturated. :(

Thanks! I already stalk your 350 reefer. :P

 

Mochi is such a common name. I wanted to name him Eevee... Here's a picture of the shibe when he was cute and cuddly and not a little drama queen.

I was really lucky with that copperband. It's actually my second one.. the first one ended up going to the great big ocean in the sky pretty fast...

Turns out the camera on the s7 edge isn't that great... Tried taking a quick shot of my developing zoa island and it looks way over saturated and blue. Oh well.

good taste in zoas!

 

Thanks! Trying to a couple more in to fill it out. I was thinking LC petroglyphs and WWC purple monsters. I would like the bowsers or jubilees, but they look too much like sunny d's and tyree orange rainbows.

Also, I have a new tank on the way. B) Looks like i'll be busy making a stand this coming weekend.

It's been a while since I've measured my no3. Did so tonight and whew, it's at 25ppm. Looks like I need to dial back the feeding and do a water change or two.

Did the second 5 gallon change today, making it a total of 10 gallons changed out so far. Going to do another 5 gallons tomorrow or Sunday, depending on how the pup feels (was neutered today). 

 

Can't seem to get a good photo of the katropora down... Hopefully I'll figure it out someday.

Also started the framework of a new stand... I might tear down and move the front two 2x4 posts inward.

Also on a sad note, it looks like my female mandarin of several years might be on her way out. She's been with me through the Nuvo 16, Fusion 20, a hypo treatment in a 40 and this tank. :(

Sorry to hear.  :( 

 

Are you replacing the Reefer 250 or will this be a new tank?

It'll be a new tank. The reefer will stay up. New tank dimensions is more fit to be a frag tank.

Thanks. I'm not sure if I want to replace her or just let things be. My tank is definitely overstocked, but I'd feel bad for my male mandarin.

Well, with that said, I would not add or replace the Mandy.

I totally understand ur want and desire to add a Female for ur Male, but there are things to consider.

1st is Feeding/eating.  Compatibility.  The Male may or may not get along.

I would give it time.

In my experience, female mandarins are typically the ones to reject and beat up the males. ;)

 

But I probably won't get one for the time being... Some shakeup in my work life that has be uncertain as to my job security. So it looks like all spending is off until then.

It's life. Stuff happens. 

 

You should try out another copperband! They're pretty fish. Which wrasse are you jealous of. If it's one of my leopards, please come and take one.
