Wisconsinite Reefing

Recommended Posts

Well after being out for a while, I'm back in the hobby.  Last month I dug out my old IM Nuvo 8.  I set it up in my grooming salon.  It has been set for a month and doing pretty well.  Just slapped on a fluval sea nano led light.  Since this tank is not in an ideal location, I'm just keeping it simple with softies and macros. 

Tank: IM Nuvo 8 in white

Light: Fluval SEA Marine 20w LED

 

Stock:

Inverts: 3 astrea snails, 1 nassarius snail, 4 blue leg hermits

Coral: Zoas, some red macro

Fish: none

Continuing to plug along.  Topping off is starting to become an issue now that the weather has cooled off.  Hopefully soon I can hook up an ato. 

With the drags came some hitchhikers.   Got some mini dusters and micro stars wandering around.  Even say a stomatella snail crawling around.  Zoas have opened up nicely and seem to like the light.  Current shot

Things have been slow.  The only saltwater shop in town is Petco.  I have to drive an hour away to get some real selection and almost 2 hours to go to a good store.  Made the trip to Milwaukee yesterday to finally add some fish.  Picked up 2 locally bred black ice clowns.  I went to get picassos but I fell in love with these two.  Also added a green fuzzy mushroom, a frag of Sunny Ds and some blue macro I forgot the name.  

Tank has been doing well.  I have flat worms and about a billion pods.  The lighting is not great.  Makes everything look pretty brown mo matter how I adjust it.

So that happened.  Covid 19 hit and my salon was shut down March 23rd.  I had a little 16 bow freshwater shell dweller tank at home.  Since I was gonna be out of work for a while I set up the 16 bow and brought the fish home.  Lost the smallest clown but nothing else.  I just got clearance to open again but it's probably gonna be a while till I move everything back.  I'm spraying a lot of cleaner at the salon right now.  

Also since I was home I set up the old 25 gallon ecoxotic.  This tank is my favorite and is about 8 years old.  Thinking about a barebottom sps tank eventually.  

Unfortunately no where is selling livestock right now.

Always happy to hear about another fishkeeper in Wisconsin. Hope COVID-19 doesn't affect you or your business too severely; tanks are looking interesting thus far.

An update on the tanks.  

The 16 bow has not been going great.  I have lost every clownfish inhave added to.  They just waste away and die despite eating.  All have come from different sources.  I have an antenna goby that is doing very well. But clowns have no chance.  Which is weird, I've always had so much luck with clowns.  Anyway, I can't find a candy cane pistol shrimp in stock anywhere.  Online or brick and mortor.  

I did find a cute little fish shop in Green Bay and I ventured to Milwaukee a few weeks ago.  Added a 6 line to the bow front which seems to be doing well. 

I haven't added much coral just because I like the lighting on the 25 cube better.  It has a eccotech radion on it and just looks amazing.  Im gonna make a thread for that tank soon.  Its been doing well.
