  1. They had other ones that weren’t labeled ORA with defects too, pretty much every large breeder won’t cull properly.
  2. I’ve seen a decent amount of incorrectly labeled fish (Especially designer clowns) and likely genetically deformed fish (mostly low quality designer clowns)
  3. Surprisingly the skies were clear so I went out and took some pics of the SF fireworks show. I’m not experienced with fireworks/long exposure stuff so critiques are welcome. Happy New Years!
  4. The wrasse will outgrow a 30, you could get a yellow fang blenny as a replacement. The blenny looks similar and will be out in the water column. Orchid dottybacks are usually less territorial than pictochromis, but add it later on to avoid issues with other fish. Firefish are nice, generally more timid so add it first. Imo dwarf angels do better in larger setups too, but it could work. Of course there’s also the risk they’ll go after coral.
  5. That’s probably the most solid gold one I’ve ever seen, almost looks like a Gymnothorax miliaris! From what I’ve seen lately they’re going for 200-350 but it could depend on size, color, seller, etc
  6. It’s easier to help with far more specific questions. You got a 150 already, what filtration is being run on it? For tanks that size a sump is practically mandatory. For livestock it helps to browse around, find some fish you’d like and create a list. Then others can go over that list and critique what might go wrong and better options.
  7. Surprised people are still optimistic, pretty sure my whole generation has accepted we’re screwed lol
  8. I had the 6 gallon desktop setup as a paludarium for a while but because of school I’m taking a break. Slight chance I may setup a pico in college but most likely I’ll wait until after college until I start a proper build.
  9. Personally I wouldn’t just because they can be pretty active. Less active basslets or firefish could work though.
  10. Tbh I think putting a top on it would be better than an ato. Manual top off should be easy with a pipette lol. For livestock small inverts like small shrimps, Pom pom crabs, and things of that nature should work. For corals just be careful because of territorial issues and growth space. Doing a frosted background might look nice, but I’m not sure if the overflow pieces would look weird with it.
  11. They probably are, originally they were mr aqua but then they stopped making them/selling them ? I dunno what happened but the same tanks mr aqua sold are now sold under other brands lol
  12. 6 gallon aquatop, 24 x 6.7 x 9 about. Fits perfectly.
  13. You could trade in your coral banded shrimp for a blue or gold coral banded shrimp, same genus but smaller species.
  14. A small goby will have a smaller bioload than the shrimp, should be fine.
  15. Should be fine, they can be a bit messy so keep an eye on nutrient levels.
  16. Well we’ve more or less killed off the stony corals of the Caribbean already
  17. Glad to see coldwater tanks are still around, are there still people selling coldwater livestock?
  18. https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/inout-overflow-and-pulsing-return-system-xaqua.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjw5s3cBRCAARIsAB8ZjU2ITVrlZbhFA5PUI3ITo4KaCffgpoSGFQLkwNYKp5VtoXGSTNHl4sQaAqk5EALw_wcB
  19. Small benthic fish like Gobies and blennies.
  20. Chrysiptera damsels can be especially aggressive, but many fish will often harass new additions. Capturing the established fish and keeping them in a separate area and allowing the new fish to acclimate can work, sometimes changing the aquascape will work too. If all else fails you may have to catch the damsel and return it.
  21. Kinda odd, you can get them for way cheaper pretty easily. They must be overcharging I guess
  22. Ekemblemaria species would be my best guess, kinda hard to say. Whatever it is, it’s most likely a sporadic import which might make it hard to find for sale.
  23. I’ve had this issue with small fw fish, usually I’d turn the flow off, feed any boisterous fish, then put crushed pellet foods on the surface and force them to sink. You could try live foods as well. YCG May take a while before taking prepared, it’ll probably hunt pods until then.
  24. Sounds good, there’s tons of cool inverts you could add. In addition to cleaner shrimp you could add small snails, anemone shrimp, Pom Pom crabs, and others.
