  1. D on hold through the weekend.
  2. B is sold and C is pending. FYI if I ship, I'll include a free bonus frag of something else.
  3. Trimmed my colony back and made some frags a month ago. Time to clear the sandbed. I'm in West Los Angeles, local pickup preferred. If you want me to mail it, pm me your zip code for an estimate. I'll only guarantee overnight. A - $40 B, C, D - $50 Colony
  4. That seems too good to be true. Is the water circulating and the temp where it needs to be? Without either, the bacteria in the liverock or the bottle will have a tough time even starting the cycle. You might just be seeing numbers from stuff dying off the live rock.
  5. Since someone's asked, here's the mother. I got the grandmother in 2012 from kmaintl.
  6. Some more growth...
  7. All sold. RR Supernova Montipora frag for $80. it's the one on the right. The mother is on the left. (Not selling the mother colony) Jawbreaker Mushroom for $60. Almost the size of a dime. $10 off each if you do local pickup in Los Angeles. I'd do a trade for something super cool :-) PM me a zipcode if you want a shipping quote. I'll only guarentee/refund for overnight.
  8. I got more limewood airstones on ebay. They got mentioned by reefbuilders and were pretty cheap, so why not. They're not as nice as the ones from pico, but fine imo since I can replace them more frequently.
  9. I got hit with a power outage last week for about a day, so I wanted to give it a little time to recover. :-( I tried 2 runs of the ammonia digestion test using Dr Tim's ammonia solution. Looks like 1ppm is digested within a day, but 2ppm is about 2.5 days. Still safe to add a clown? LFS has had one on hold for me, so I'd like to go get it tomorrow...
  10. 17 gallons. It'll either be a clown or a small wrasse.
  11. Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, considering the size of my tank, I'd rather be overly cautious and ask. Dunno how much ammonia some pellets might be. I only plan to stock 1-2 fish total, so definitely beginning slow. I think since we can't really measure the bioload or bacteria population directly, it's a guessing game :-(
  12. So I left my tank fallow for 3 months after my last fish died possibly of itch or something. It's been running with coral, a fire shrimp and snails. The shrimp gets fed each day with pellets and I do weekly 30% water changes. Should I do anything to bump the bioload before I add a new fish? Params are 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 5 nitrate and ph 8.26. Thanks!
