  1. I do have purple up. WIth that said, I haven't exactly used it.
  2. What you do, what I can't seem to do - at least in that tank, is get coraline to grow.
  3. I've been thinking about that trumpet. I have had it for about 4 years now. It, the blasto (for sure) are corals I had before I went to the 10 gallon. It has been with me since I restarted the tank - I'll try to find the original pic. Okay I got thes ecorals back between March and April 2015 - who are still with me today. Green rock flower anemone (now has about a 5 inch disk) Hammer coral (1 head) Blastomussa (1head) Trumpet (1 head) 1 cluster of zoas no idea what they were colled (for sure)
  4. it's gorgeous, but I want to get rid of it really, it takes up so much space. Buy my clowns host it... - so I just frag it every so often. I grew it from a single head.
  5. I have run 10 doses of Dino-X. I did a 30% WC, vaccume and changed out the filter floss. Added in a dirty filter floss from my reef (bacteria) , and fresh carbon. Introduced three small crabs + shells 2 nass snails 1 astrea snail And a small blasto frag + the trumpet that kept falling down from my tank. The water has been crystal (or close as crystal without carbon or filtration other htan floss) for the past week or so - no sign of dino. I plan to do 3 more doses, plus remove the UV steriliser by December 8th. Mum wants a fish or two again, but I want to monitor the tank for at least one month before (prefer 2) before I do that, in the mean time, slow introduction of some corals, or mushrooms/zoas are in the plans. Also in the plans are a mini-tide for her tank. It likely will be my current one, and I'll jack the new one.
  6. trade. I had a rather large, ableit lovely hand leather but it was too big for my tank. I got it as a tiny frag in a rescue situation, and traded it. I kept three frags off it, in time I will trade those in. I want to trade my trumpet, but my clown fish are hosting it - I really could use that real estate for something else not so enormous.
  7. I have had my pair for about 2 or so years and they are going on strong. If you really don't like her, then find her a new loving home.
  8. I am considering ordering one of these again, this time for mums tank. (or take the new one myself and give her my old one - either or. Any chance I could do the payment thing (2 - 3 parts) again if I do?
  9. I have a battery backup and bat air pump. 10 gallon tank. Currently my hydor powerhead and lights are connected. in summer I would have a cooling fan connected - but my tank is in the basement so its easy to keep cool. My husband retreived the bat backup from work. we have two, I plan to get the other one with new bats to plug my mums tank into. we don't get power outages for long, 20 minutes to two hours at worst. mostly its flickers.
  10. It looks worlds better - I am gonna carry treatment for a full 30 days I have to admit, I am not sure how dino-x will affect the cycle, if I should carry on with cycling the tank - the issue happened within 10 days of setup, apparently dinos were likely part of the problem that crashed the tank. I am not sure if they caused the snail to die - which caused a cascade effect, but could easily be.
  11. Zoas melted, the GSP so far has survived - I suppose it would be easier to pull it down, and start anew. but I haven't given up on the GSP. Dino-X and a UV steriliser are being used in tandem. dinos don't seem to be as spread as before, and seem to be dying off.
  12. if this treatment doesn't work, I'll pull down and sterilise the tank and equipment - then restart. Outside of the struggling zoas, Only green star polyps and a leather survived. I can likely remove both and dip them or ditch them - and fully restart.
  13. I did a three day total blackout - followed by current treatment.
