  1. Thank you everyone for their suggestions! I rub its foot a little and it immediately let loose. On top of that, the tank move/upgrade was successful with no casualties
  2. Thank you all for the suggestions, I will try my best!
  3. Hello NR, Anyone have any tips on moving RFA that attached itself onto the glass? I'm moving and upgrading to a larger tank tomorrow and the RFA is attached onto the glass. I plan on removing all live rock, corals and fish, and keeping them in separated containers. All that's left is the single RFA I have which moved itself from the rocks onto the glass. Any tips are appreciated!
  4. If I'm reading your first post correctly, reducing the channel is reducing the amount of light. Or if you would want more blue, then you would reduce the channel for the white. Can you describe your system? Age, size, water parameters? Was the Monti a new addition?
  5. I second DominicDuffy's post. I have this light over a 6.25 Imagitarium and it's ok. The sides of my tank do not get enough light. I currently have all channels on full power except for Channel 3 (white). I believe its down 3 clicks on the remote.
  6. Nice to see other members with the same lighting. Mine is over a 6 gallon Imagitarium though. May need to get another one for more spread.
  7. Yes, definitely move them away from each other
  8. I've been using it for almost 6 months now and I love it. The growth and coloration on my zoas have taken off. Be careful not to overdose though, or GHA growth may take off also
  9. Sorry about your lost wartskin. I always enjoyed the pictures you posted of the little guy. Definitely don't give up! I second what metrokat said, try feeding a variety. I've fed my angler frozen lancefish, gut loaded ghost shrimp, and sometimes live damsels. I don't really know what else we can feed, but just some suggestions.
  10. My LFS suggested aquavitro's fuel when I asked about zoas coloration and growth. I've been using the product for almost 3 months now and I love it. I purchased a single polyp frag of red hornets and it grew to almost 5 heads in 2ish weeks, but zoa pox took over my tank. I've noticed that a lot of the colors of my corals really colored up too. I mostly have zoas, but I also have various softies and LPS Its not something you need to dose daily, I dose twice a week. Also don't over dose or you're gonna have hair algae.
  11. I don't see why you can't. Just do it slowly and seed the new rock. Or if you have a sump, put the new rocks in there to seed. Make sure you rinse the rocks well for debris. Also, you do know that over time, the white rock is going to turn brown from algae, and then probably purple or green depending on the coraline.
  12. The color change is normal. Sooner or later the fish is going to turn fully black. I'm guessing its a sign of age or growth. A friend of mine had two of these in his tank. When they reached an inch to inch and a half they started loosing the white color and just turned black.
  13. Couple more pics. I've notice he has been out in the open a lot more lately With his lure out
  14. How you killing the yellow polyps while they are still in the tank? Maybe they're releasing toxins that are affecting your other zoas. What other corals do you have in the tank? I've been dosing with vitamin C and have been having great success with zoas that are sick and closed up.
  15. *Phew* Glad I didn't pay the price of a maculatus for a pictus. Here are some more decent shots (stupid photobucket won't show the upright version even after editing...)
  16. Is it a pictus? I'm so confused right now. Liveaquaria listed it as a A. maculatus, says so on my bill also. However, the one I purchased looks exactly like the one that is currently on divers den: http://www.liveaquaria.com/diversden/ItemD...amp;ddid=127288 But that one is listed as a pictus.. This may come in handy for others if they do decide to purchase an angler. What would you say is a fair price range for an A. maculatus and an A. pictus?
  17. Just got this guy yesterday. A little hectic at first, but finally settled down. He is about 2" A. maculatus
  18. All bulbs have been spoken for. Please close this mods. Thank you.
  19. Hey NR, I recently upgraded my tank and lighting system. I have these laying around with no use so they're up for sale. Prices do not include shipping.

First come first serve only because I have only three. Thank you
  20. They are reef safe, but may prey on shrimp. They are really cool fish, and dont necessarily need to be fed live food. Many people have trained theirs to eat frozen silver sides.
  21. Along with Furan2, my LFS suggested I try a hydrogen peroxide dip mixed with saltwater. What I did was a gallon of tank water mixed with 1qt hydrogen peroxide. Have a big powerhead in there to mix the water and blast the zoas. Dip for about 3 minutes and put back into the tank. I only tried it once with about 5 frags. I lost two of them. I'm not sure if it was because of the dip, or if the pox was taken over already. I did this along with another dip in furan2 another day. Both are really harsh dips, and maybe there wasnt enough time in-between dips, that may have caused it. Good luck!
  22. Here's a video of mine Action happens at around 40 seconds in. I'm not too sure what kind he is though. I'm guessing its a A. tuberosus as his coloration and markings closes resembles that, however it only has a tiny rod that resembles the Histiophryne bougainvilli. BTW, I upgraded the tank to a 29 gallon frag tank and he is basically hidden all day. Would I have any problems adding an A. maculatus?
