  4. Ghostryder's 24G DX NC

    ive just been done a quick google search for curly cue anenome, and it turns out there of the aiptasia family so i think we both may be right, check this link out http://www.nautilusreef.com/html/tbs_live_...ck_index_1.html cheers Dave
  5. Ghostryder's 24G DX NC

    Great tank ghostryder, the brain and plate are really nice. i hate to be the bearer of bad news but i think the curly cue hitch hiker may be aipatasia which are a pest and a pain to get rid of ive been battling them for two weeks now. i found this link which has some good pics of them http://www.reefcorner.com/SpecimenSheets/aipatasia.htm i hope this helps because if they are they can be difficult to eradicate. still got a great tank (nicer than mine) Cheers Dave
  6. what critter have you lost, that you really miss having in the tank

  7. anenomie ID

    ok as soon as i get home from work operation eradicate the alien starts. cant get joes juice for a few day cus id have to order it online, would injecting the blighter with boiling water work?
  8. anenomie ID

    i think its a damm close match, the question now is do i try nget rid of it or leave it n hope they dont take over n i end up with a war of the wolrds situation with evry thing runing scared from the dreaded invader ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhggg make for the hills.
  9. anenomie ID

    ok im convinced its an aptasia, i found a top down shot of aptasia n its a prity close match. this is the picture i found
  10. anenomie ID

    Yeah i think you might be right, but i thought apatasia wernt light sensitive, when i put the tank lights on this little guy pulls back into a hole so you cant see him at all, the only time i see him out on the rock is when its dark first thing in the morning, i get up at stupid o clock for work and all way check my tank before i leave. thanks for the reply tho. Dave
  11. anenomie ID

    any ideas at all? i dont think its apatasia but im slightly worried it might be. cheers Dave.
  12. Dark pigmentation on Ocerllaris, plus bonus round

    hi bob I dont think the spots on your clown are anything to worry about, one of my pair got them for a while but they soon disapered, i was told there normal for clowns, kinda like clown achne
  13. anenomie ID

    hi all, i got a delivery of macro algae the other day and i found this small anenomie like critter on one of the leaves, so i thought what hell ill see if it survives, but now im worried if it could be a pest of some sort. its bout 3/4 inch across when its fully inflated, white with darker bands on the tenticles. it seems to be nocturnal cus the only time i see it out fully is after lights out or first thing in the morning when i havent turned them on yet. the rest of the time it shrinks back into a whole in the rock. the picture i took is a bit crapy cus its from the top of the tank. any ideas?
