 that small gap is more then enough for the fish to jump.

On my tank, the gap is 5mm (.2 inch) wide. Is it enough for fishes to jump out of the aquarium 😨?

Yep 😞
You will be surprise how fishes can find ways😲
(Obviously adult clown fish wouldn't not but other with slim body...)

I love your videos I wish I had your talents! 
 

And I’m super jealous of your sexy shrimp reproducing! Wish mine would in my 5g tank- such cool animals. Really awesome stuff!

Such a bummer! I have my tanks hooked up to WiFi capable power strips that allow you to set timers for the individual plugs- so at feeding time the return pumps, wave pumps turn off for 10 minutes and come back on automatically. Because I’ve forgotten to plug stuff back in or turn it back on too, and almost killed my animals with no flow myself. So sorry for the loss of the sexies!

Finally new fish, I waited a long time on purpose (mostly for stubborn reasons), I made an effort to buy Captive bred fish and I had a mysterious one in the bag, turn out to be a good story why captive bred fish is better!

I had a lot of hardware "upgrade" in my mind in the past few months, I tried to put all of it in this video, hope you enjoy some of the explanation I provided.

Life is like the ocean, it has its ups and downs.
At this time, my tank is running beautifully and I wanted to capture this moment.
My appreciation for marine life is endless, a beautiful world that needs to be shared with others.

Dinoflagellate are notorious in reef aquariums, it's a microscopic pest that is hard to remove from saltwater tank.
But This isn't my first encounter, last time blackout alone was enough to kill them all, but this time I'm trying a different method to document the effectiveness.

OK, that close up of the dinos with your camera (at 5 minutes in)  was super cool.

Right?
I was surprised to go that far, I love the other one also with the Dinos pending together under the coral like curtains

Thx!
I'm really struggling with the microscope part, I'm so unsatisfied with the visual, I tried different things and cleaning but the image quality is not there.
It's a AmScope T490-DK and i learn my lesson with this company, will never buy from them again, I had to deal with customer service for 2 months (missing part, send wrong stuff, malfonction part, etc...)

If anyone have good suggestion for quality microscope let me know, meanwhile I still have to learn about this fascinating world!

Adding a Tridacna Crocea in my nano reef aquarium, It's a clam that I have since 3-4 years now, it's one of the toughest coral I ever owned, he's not a typical clam.

Random photo session, I ask one of my Artemia models to pose for me, a special blooper with one of her kids. Training artemia to pose as human do is a titanic task, took 2 weeks of training. Will follow the career of this one, hope it finds the right mouth!

Episode 58

 

Scleronephthya is probably my last "Masterpiece" coral, I want to try soft NPS coral and see if I keep them alive. This type of coral needs dirty water so in the past months I slowly started to add organisms that could filter the organic to compensate. The microfauna seems to be stable and well developed so I pull the trigger on this beautiful Strawberry coral.
