  1. Help with frogspawn

    I know even less about photography and posting pictures than I know about frogspawn. Frank
  2. Help with frogspawn

    Thanks what I have appears to be a frogspawn allthough I have yet to see any sweepers.I see a little almost clear curled (thing gismo gisari- all scientific terms ) darting in and out of the mouth, most visable when the lights are off. Do the sweepers appear when the lights are on or off? Does this coral need suplemental feeding and if so how much, of what, and how often? I know I should not have bought a coral without knowing somthing about it but it was purchaced with 2 other corals I was looking for and they were 3 for a hundred bucks. Thanks again Frank
  3. Help with frogspawn

    How can I determine if the coral I purchaced is a frogspawn or a torch? Thanks Frank
  4. T5 footprint

    Thanks Frank
  5. T5 footprint

    How much width minimum would be needed to mount 2 t5 lamps with icecap reflectors side by side. Thanks Frank
  6. Brown Fuzz

    not hydroids at least not those ones. Thanks Frank didn't see those brown things maybe Frank
  7. Brown Fuzz

    I am afraid to cut for fear of spreading the ugly little buggers
  8. Brown Fuzz

    Not aiptasia more like tiny zoos les than 1/8 inch diameter to small for my photo skills. Frank
  9. Brown Fuzz

    My tank has been running about 5 years and I am now getting a few spots of a tiny brown colonial polyp, very small less than a 1/4 inch high when expanded ( looks like brown fuzz ) . How do I get rid of this without taking my tank apart or destroying my display? My thought was to cover with epoxy and maybe abit of live rock rubble. Thanks for any ideas or identification Frank

  11. Mushrooms taking over

    I live out in the sticks an hour and a half from a decent salt water store, no clubs, and don't even know anyone with areef tank to trade frags with. Frank
  12. Mushrooms taking over

    Mushrooms are taking over all of the prime realestate in my tank. Can I inject some of the unwanted ones with something to kill them off? They are almost impossible to pull off the rock without messing everything else up. My Toadstool (sarcophyton sp.) which was mu first coral (about 5 years) seems to object to being crowded does this make sense? Thanks Frank
  13. Do actinics provide any value to corals?

    Sorry about that I have no idea what i did. Mr Fosi I would mount the CF lamps and reflectors directly in the hood without the fixture remotely mounting the ballasts and hopefully have room for a 150 w HQI
  14. Help with lighting

    I have moved the contents of my 20 gal (24x 12) to a 33 gal. (36x 12) to get more clearance around the sides and the fact that the tank stand and hood which I already had fits the space in my den better. I positioned my 2x65w pc Aqualight 1 -10000k and one actinic lamp under the hood. In addition to this I have added a 20w NO Marineglo flourescent. I would like to improve the lighting without spending a whole lot of money. Do I gain anything by switching the actinic for another 1000K or a 50/50? I have considered taking the Aqualight apart and using the lamps ballasts and endcaps in the hood and mounting a 150w HQI but I am worried about heat issues. The dimensions of the hood inside are 36.5x12.5x6.5 Thanks for any thoughts. Frank
  15. Do actinics provide any value to corals?

    I have read this entire thread and now my head hurts. Not wanting to hijack thread could you answer some questions? I have moved the contents of my 20 gal (24x 12) to a 33 gal.
