  1. Anyone looking to sell a Nuvo 10? Or something close to it? LFS has one for a good price, but just trying to see what else is out there.
  2. Wish you were in the St Louis area.

    I want to do something like this to get rid of aptasia. What's your plan? Scrub it with some aptasia x?

    Just a heads up, you can put sun glasses or yellow shooting glasses in front of your phone lense and it will eliminate a lot of the blue

    Dang, sorry to hear that. I've never had problems with clowns jumping, that's crazy that he was such a jumper.

    That bastard! My biggest hermit is concerning me. I don't have many extra shells and I'm afraid he's gonna get to a turbo to size up

    I haven't updated this in a while, but the tank is moving along just fine. Got myself a little buddy the other day for my birthday. Hoping to get a BTA one of these days to help keep him cozy. FTS 3/19/2017 I also picked up a feather duster a while back. After putting him in my tank a few weeks ago, I noticed he dropped his feathers. Must've been really stressed. Happy to say he's making quite the comeback and growing like crazy!

    Nice!! I've got a black/white clown in my spec v. He's doing very well. Can't wait to see pics! Oh wait, I see that little dude hiding!

    Looks awesome. That last sps looking thing looks like a toilet seat. I wouldn't do two clowns in this tank. I've got a 5 gallon and have a sail fin barnacle blenny in it...coolest little guy ever. Although I disagree with Weetabix7. I think you could fit a clown happily as long as you were VERY precise on water changes.

    Light for 10 gallon

    I currently have the orbit in that size. Amazing light. Very powerful. Currently running whites on about 10% and blues at about 20%. Afraid I might bleach more if I go any higher. You wont be disappointed.
  12. Zoas been closed for a while. Have a video of something that was crawling around them. Not sure what it is. also it it almost looks like something is growing on them. Since taking these pictures I did an iodine and water dip that has resulted in them opening up more than usual, but still not perfect

    So I've been watching my zoas. I have pests. Wtf is this? as soon as i turned my lights up, it scattered across my rock. Doesn't look like a nudi but I could be wrong Also, what are these things around my zoas? Looks like something is growing on them

    I took some of the sand bed down about a week ago (as mentioned before), but ever since, my zoas are not really opening. 99% of the time they're completely shut, with 1% of the time, they're about 10% open. I'm not exactly sure why. I've tried lowering the light intensity and they still haven't opened over the past 4 days. I brushed some sand off that was stuck in between the polyps and that helped a little bit, but they're still totally closed. Water parameters are fine. 20% water change yesterday. Kind of at a lost. If I had to pin it on anything, it might be the lights being too bright. My cactus coral looks a little bleached compared to older photos. What do you guys think?
