  1. 🔥🔥🔥 Lawnman's Lounge 🔥🔥🔥

    The smell of the top of a baby's head is one of the best smells in the world.
  2. 🔥🔥🔥 Lawnman's Lounge 🔥🔥🔥

    Hey, I couldn't draw that in the grass with a lawnmower, so they get my admiration.
  3. Fireworms!

    Even if it was a fireworm, it wouldn't hurt anything in your tank. There are 2 kinds of "fireworms" that are harmful- Bobbit worms ambush prey (fish) and can bite them in half, and bearded fireworms are very specialized eaters that dine on gorgonians. You'd be able to ID one right away because it would be deep-throating your gorgs. Just leave them alone and quit worrying.
  4. Fireworms!

    Getting rid of them would be dumb. It's not hurting anything and is part of the beneficial fauna of your tank. It's just a regular bristleworm. Fireworms are extremely rare.

    I said they need to do that over North Korea. We'll show that "Fearless Leader".
  6. Fireworms!

    Common bristleworm, newb.
  7. The MacGyver Slinky Dream Tank- Basic New Pics

    I love the below-sand worm trails too. I never thought of the analogy to ant farms but you're right, it's just like that. I'm wondering if we can market this, kind of like Sea Monkeys. Think of the possibilities .
  8. Lula Mae's "Jarden" of Enjoyment

    Lobsters are good, peaceful long-lived inverts. I don't know about squats (I don't know squat about squats ) but I have a Daum's reef lobster and he's been with me since 2008. Every once in a blue moon (literally) he sheds, and I think the shed is a dead lobster, but in a few days I start seeing him again. I recommend them over shrimp because they seem to live forever. Unfortunately, he never gets big enough to eat.
  9. Clownfish eggs

    Good luck with everything, fingers crossed for success. I found this picture I thought you'd like- all the babies looking up at papa.
  10. Hermit crab eating toadstool?

    I think it's most likely the crab is eating the film along the bottom of the toadie. I've never seen a crab eat a toadie.
  11. Asterina starfish

    They're harmless, but they reproduce like bunnies and some people consider them unsightly. If you trade corals and you pass them along in the coral, you may get a rep for spreading aquarium STDs. Some people don't mind them. I can't stand them. It's a personal preference.
  12. Arrow crab

    I noticed when my arrow crab would rip up bristle worms that the pieces seemed to still be living. In some polychaete worms (earthworms are oligochaetes) a single segment can regenerate into an entire worm. The only thing I could find online is this paper https://academic.oup.com/icb/article/46/4/508/635658/Distribution-of-segment-regeneration-ability-in . I think if I knew the genus and species name of the bristle worms most commonly found in tanks I could get a better idea of its regenerative abilities (or lack thereof). All in all, I don't think an arrow crab with extra fish food to eat will wipe out a healthy population of bristle worms. I always had plenty despite the crab.
  13. Arrow crab

    I think when the crab breaks off pieces of the worm, those pieces can regenerate into new worms.
  14. Arrow crab

    Yep! And they are pretty neat.
  15. Arrow crab

    Hmmm....arrow crabs aren't algae eaters. They are a useful member of the CUC because they do eat leftover food. They eat bristle worms- they'll hold one in a claw for days and slowly pull it apart over time. They'll also eat feather duster worms. If you look at the size and style of their claw, you can see that it's designed to extract food from crevices. They leave fish alone and I've never had one damage corals. Here's a pic of mine from way back when eating a bristle worm.
