    Nice shooting Tex. Hey, I'm looking at printing some landscape work on wood and am anxiously awaiting a few sample prints to arrive. Can you provide some detail on the warping you experienced? What size, thickness and type of wood? Did you find a suitable way to seal that prevented it? TIA

    Came here looking for some inspiration while I get ready to set this tank up again after a move to Salt Lake City. I realized I never did post anything about the tanks second incarnation. I wound up adding an MP10 and went with mostly softies with a couple RBTAs as the centerpiece. I really liked the tank looking very "flowy" and am leaning towards that direction again. Dry rock from BRS on order so I guess I'll decide on a plan for the tank based on what the rock inspires me to build the 'scape into. This was RSM pt II...on to RSM pt III
  3. anemone ID?

    It does look like an LTA. I've seen them referred to as red foot anemones and those I've seen kept had all placed their foot in the sand (rather than in rock like a BTA will) such as yours is doing. I'm not so sure it's really looking that healthy, and that lighting is rather weak.

    Thanks for the comments... still have this tank up, however I will be taking it down shortly or turning it into a horse farm. I've pointed my camera elsewhere mostly for the past few years, but I'll see if I've got decent, recent shots. Most pertinent nano lesson learned since starting this? Unless it dies, it's probably only going to get bigger.
  5. Razor blades and acrylic?

    I prefer AMEX.

    Hmmmm... maybe an update is in order? It has been a while. The new year may bring lots of new pics of this now three year old reef.
  8. I've got a hard time seeing how a moderator just insulting people is really helping anything. Unless your goal is to simply make people go to other sites. That it should do fairly well, and not just the noobs.
  9. Posts or posters? I would think there are too many posts to rate them individually and if you're rating posters what is to stop morons for rating each other to guru status? In general, it don't think I see more stupid here than I've seen in the past.

    What kind of SPS did you want to keep? I'm keeping several types in a RSM.

    Moving stinks.... I had losses as well. Things are still looking great in your 'house' though!

    Lookin good. Love the 'scape.
  14. articulated coralline?

    Good question. Likely because it gets overrun by more 'mundane' coralline in our enclosed systems. I know from watching the evolution of our reef most of the more interesting coralline (white, reds, orange, greens and blues ...some of those branching) was eventually overrun by a couple more common variations of purple. ...probably why most systems, in particular mature ones end up sporting the same old, same old types of purple coralline. Most interesting "surviving" type in our reef has been this scrolling one (ignore the BA please): It's VERY slow growing.
