  1. Cambro Reef

    The common name is hydroids, they have several life stages. The one that looks like a jellyfish is the medusa life stage. There are hundreds of types of hydroids. In a mixed reef, they are kept in check by other inhabitants.
  2. Hydroids are naturally present in the live rock. If you have seen little jellyfish-looking creatures, those are hydroids. They typically are a problem with dwarf seahorses because dwarf seahorses require low flow and large amounts of artemia. The hydroids flourish in these conditions if they are not handled accordingly. For a nano-reef that has filtration and other organisms competing for the same resources typically outcompete the hydroids and keep their population in check.
  3. Yes, only a few more days. I'm packaging them right now. Almost done This is still a concern and partially true. The hydroid life cycle does require saltwater to survive, so the cyst is not necessarily on the eggshell but rather inside. Decapsulating it does lower the possibility of hydroids. The way we are going to address this is to provide live sand that has been treated with the appropriate dosage of Pancur. So when people set up their tanks and use the live sand they will be doing a preventive dosage. Also, it has been shown that Pancur does attach to substrates so it has long-acting effects.
  4. Pico Light Survey

    Really like this discussion. Been doing pico lights for about 4 years now. If you need any advice on how to get off the ground PM me.
  5. I will soon put a pre-order option online hopefully be the end of the weekend. I want to finish the instructions, and have the final packaging done so I can take some product photos to post as a finished product. Want to fulfill all backers orders within 1-2 weeks. So non-backers will begin receiving them at the end of the month.
  6. Here some photos of most recent packaging. I’m getting stuck on fine details such as instructions. But they are almost done I will be sending an update on Kickstarter soon and asking for addresses for the magnetic feeder.
  7. If it is going to be used as decorative lighting then I would vote that it follows the guidelines. I'll let @Felicia and @Christopher Marks chime in on it also.
  8. Ended December 3rd. We will be taking Pre-orders soon, and the feeder should ship out this month. We can PM you once available.
  9. Kickstarter campaign has ended. We are starting the manufacturing process. We will be taking pre-orders through our website soon. We can PM you once it is up.
  10. Yes. I'm planning on doing other albums, maybe like Best of Photos, or something along those lines. Let me PM you, I believe you are already a collaborator in the album, just need to decided what type of additional albums to create.
  11. That is the plan. I subscribed to all the threads and created a separate email account to follow along. I have been updating pictures as new pictures roll in.
  12. @seabass I've created a Pinterest album with sub-albums containing contestants photos. I believe everyone can access it without the need for an account. There is a total of 375 photos so far. You should check it out. https://www.pinterest.com/pjreefs/nano-reef-creative-container/ Let me know if you have any trouble accessing it. It is a fun way to see all the photos without the added conversations.

    @seabass I really like the depth that your aquascape creates. Can wait to see this one fill up.
  14. Oh. I think you can work around it by increasing your current award by $30. I will send you the extra feeding mechanism early.
