  1. 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
  2. Dang, sorry to hear that. I've never had problems with clowns jumping, that's crazy that he was such a jumper.
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. Wow, looks incredible!
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. here's a better pic
  13. Hard to prove with an iphone 5. But I'll do my best. Top view...past two weeks has almsot doubled in size since I bought it. Hard to see, but it almost looks like a heart shape forming on this side. Has it's own mouth already. This side does not have it's own mouth yet, but is forming. You can see it growing below the original second head (giggity)
  14. Saturday is the day. The LFS had a twin spot two weeks ago, then nothing last week...Hopefully they have him this week, as well as the dope chartreuse plate coral. Either way, I'll keep you updated. By the way, I can tell my hammer coral is splitting on both heads. I bought it with two heads, and I can tell both heads are splitting. Holy crap, I'm about to have 4 heads of hammers!
