  1. Ninja's Fluval Evo 13.5 - New Pics

    I had one that ate frozen Cyclopes
  2. Rock flower grow out tank

    I would throw a brittle star or two in there to clean up excess food
  3. William's RSR Nano - Rise Of The Gorgonian

    New pics of the tank, sorry for the poor quality, regular iPhone camera shots (I still have a hard time taking pictures) also so I found this odd looking snail today and I'm not sure if it needs to be removed or not...?
  4. William's RSR Nano - Rise Of The Gorgonian

    Thanks!, and I dose BWA lugols solution. I should test for it and I have an iodine test on the way but I have recently just watched my leather corals and gorgonians. Specifically my corky sea finger and and purple sinularia. I have noticed that if both are not having good polyp extension I can add a drop of lugols solution and within an hour the polyp extension is significantly better. I never dose more then two drops per week. I think part of my problem is that I have a significant number of soft corals for a relatively small water volume and I skim heavily. I will know more when I get my iodine test. I should also note that the rock nems have doubled in size in slightly less than a month.

    Update: things are going well, for the first time in a while. all of my sps are growing rapidly and my gorgonian are really taking off (I started dosing iodine and this really seems to have helped). I also have found that my aquarium prefers nitrate to be in the 4-8 range. In this range I get good growth, color, and minimal algae growth. If I drop below 4 I actually see increased algae growth and decreased coral growth. I have made a few changes as well. I added on a bio-pellet reactor to augment my NOPOX dosing and have seen good results. I have also dramatically increased my amino acid dosing and feeding with positive results. Fish additions: Algae Blenny Grade A Picasso Clown Invert Additions: fighting conch 10 margarita snails 1 Mexican turbo snail. This brings the number of fish in my aquarium to 7: Red Bandtail Waspfish x2 Radial Filefish Red Firefish Algae Blenny Clownfish x2 Which I feel may be the max I could keep without having issues of overcrowding. The only exception would be if I could find a small yellow fuzzy dwarf lionfish, something I have been trying to acquire for over a year.

    I love that gorgonian, did it come in the package? Know the species ?
  9. William's RSR Nano - Rise Of The Gorgonian

    I think my last fish addition will either be a small "ultra" yellow or red fuzzy dwarf lion or a yellow spot scorpionfish
