  1. UPDATE: Working out deal with forum member. Off market for the time being. Hey everyone. Moving soon and pulled this stuff out of storage. Hate to toss it as when I was big into nanoreef these things were pretty nice. 70w MH I assume is still ultra rare but may be obsolete. Kept it on a 12g. Vortech is just the pump controller and power source, no fan. Just looking to offload these on an owner who will get good use. Just asking to cover shipping and throw in a few extra for my time. Coming from 27713. Message me with any questions. 1. 70w Metal Halide unit with extra new bulb (10k ushio) (missing one plug for night light): $10 plus shipping. 2. VorTech MP20 pump controller and power source (no fan): $10 plus shipping. 3. Dr fosters smith granulated carbon: will add to either of the above, first to request, just cover shipping. Thanks, Adam
  2. THE OFFICIAL TRIDACNID CLAM THREAD

    Interested!
  3. THE OFFICIAL TRIDACNID CLAM THREAD

    Sounds like a good day. I am going to the LFS this weekend to hopefully find a third clam. This thread gave me the itch! I have only ever tried crocea. Maybe I will find an affordable maxima on Monday at the LFS!
  4. THE OFFICIAL TRIDACNID CLAM THREAD

    Its funny because I have trouble even keeping softies alive sometimes, not to mention my sps had a horrible bleach out when I moved. For some reason, though, these clams keep on going! Maybe they feel bad for me haha.
  5. THE OFFICIAL TRIDACNID CLAM THREAD

    Species of clam? T. Crocea x2 Lighting - aquatraders 250w Clam depth in the tank in inches? 6" and 10", and light is probably 6" above tank. DOC level estimate? Would guess low in new, bb tank Do you skim? Yes Do you run carbon? Yes Do you run GFO? Yes Did you ever freshwater dip the clam? No Are you seeing new growth? Yes, but I do not keep track. Calcium/Alk Method? Water changes Where and when did you get it? Large: at least 5 yers ago, LFS $50; small: at least 3 years ago, LFS $50 I love your idea! Clams today: Fts showing clam sizes: Large clam in 2008: How did you manage $5?! Nice.
  6. is this brown jelly disease?

    Good point on salinity. Also, phos. may be 0.25 after a second look. These colors never really match... Gonna have to go to the store tonight to get cal/alk :/
  7. is this brown jelly disease?

    Found most of them and all looks good, although I wish I could find alk... Ammonia 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate 0 Phos 0 PH 8.0, maybe 7.8
  8. is this brown jelly disease?

    Yeah I am I am running around looking for all my test kits. Haven't had a problem in so long I don't even know if I have everything. That will teach me.
  9. is this brown jelly disease?

    I will try and get better pics this evening. I siphoned it all off for now...
  10. is this brown jelly disease?

    What about the one in the link?
  11. is this brown jelly disease?

    I wish. I only have my tablet and phone on me. I added a link to a phone pic with better color. Maybe that helps?
  12. Hey everyone, My open brain has been struggling recently and I thought it was due to bad light acclimation. Now, after some research, I think it might be brown jelly disease. Could you help ID and give me insights and suggestions please? I have never dealt with this before. Thanks! http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii108/Collegenano/0606131150a_zps0875593a.jpg

  14. Collegenano's 40 Breeder (Previous 46 Bow)

    I recently moved to a new place and set up a 40 breeder, taking down the 46 bow that had been plaguing me for some time now. Algae issues were the main problem, and the goal of this new start is to keep algae in check! Although the move went smoothly, almost all of my SPS bleached and died. I must have missed something, because I have moved this tank so many times without any survival issues, but I am taking the losses well due to the fact that my new tank seems to be successfully repelling the algae so far! I wanted to make the move to the 40 breeder as affordable as possible. I kept all of my old equipment and found a nifty way to build a stand that is both solid and not an eyesore. I posted that journey in this thread. I set up the new tank in the living room: I just took a few pics of the livestock because I have not done so in a while. Here is one of my proudest pieces, my at least 5 year old crocea. You can compare it to its smaller, around 3 year old counterpart! And here is a brain I got today from the LFS on impulse! Any my favorite fuzzy dwarf lionfish!
  15. 40 Breeder Stand Suggestions?

    Here is the front as it stands now. Excuse the clutter, we are still in the process of finishing our move in. From the side, (with our dog Skyler making an appearance): You can see the edges do not line up perfectly, but are pretty close considering they are not connected! I will probably use something to raise the side up slightly in the end.
