    GE 6500 are very warm but mixed with the ATI Blue, the color is very balanced. I don't like the ultra-blue look of just 14k or 20k light. The LEDs add another level of color and shimmer.

    Overfeed your fish. LOL! Got a few from a LFS when I first started. Now there is a large population. Every month or so they all climb to the highest rock and release sperm and eggs. Clouds the water for a few hours. If you can't get a few from a LFS or friend, Indo-Pacific Sea Farms sells critter kits. http://www.ipsf.com/

    Euphyllia (frog spawn, hammer and torch corals) have a weak sting. Just enough to grab onto and pull in meaty foods. Currently none of my LPS corals are touching other corals. If they do bump occasionally, it doesn't seem to cause any problems. Just make sure other corals are not in constant contact with them.

    Rod's 40G Soft Coral Reef Aquarium
  8. My 40g breeder reef aquarium. The tank is a little over 2 years old. SPS seems to be all the craze today, but I really enjoy the beautiful shapes and movements of soft corals. I've found that the feeding requirements, flow rates, and water conditions for soft corals, clams and LPS corals complement each other nicely. You can find a hires photo here. Close up of the Goniopora, Green Nepthea and Sarcophyton. My Pygmy Waspfish (Hypodytes rubripinnis). One of my favorite fish for the nano-reef. Hardy and small, the Pygmy Waspfish is a beautiful and interesting reef resident. I've had mine for close to two years. Here's a photo of the tank when I first set it up, two years ago. My main source of filtration is a GAC reactor and Chaeto. I do not run a filter sock and the protein skimmer stays off most of the time. Here is more info on the tank. Feel free to contact me if you have questions/comments rodney@azarmi.com - 40g breeder (36x18x16) - 4x36" Current T5 fixture with ATI Blue Plus, GE 6500 and ATI Aquablue bulbs - Brightwell two-part, 200ml per week and small amounts of Iron and Iodine supplements - 5 gallon water change per week with Tropic Marin salt - 15 gallon sump. No sock (got tired of cleaning it), Bubble-Magus NAC6 skimmer (removed skimmer), small GAC reactor and ball of chaeto with LED light. I do not run the skimmer often. - Tunze Silence return pump . I run the return pump at the lowest setting, about 250 gph. I find a slow flow through my sump improves skimmer production and saves energy. - (2) Koralia nano 400 in tank for flow. - I feed my fish and corals twice a day. I feed PE mysis, cyclop-eeze and brine shrimp. I usually turn my return pump off for an hour and let the food circulate through my tank to feed my corals. I target feed PE mysis to my larger LPS corals. The Xenia are the only corals in the tank that show no feeding behavior. I suspect their dependance on dissolved nutrients makes them sensitive to heavy filtration.
  9. Pygmy Waspfish (Hypodytes rubripinnis)

    Spine is poisonous but they are very docile. The spine is basically protection from being swallowed. They are so mellow, I nudge mine into position when I need to shoot photos. You don't see to many because they are hard to feed. It can be difficult to train them on dead food. I feed mine live brine until they got used to frozen mysis.

    A great nano-reef companion. I had mine for over two years.

  13. Wasp fish with Eggs

    I've had my Pygmy Waspfish for two years now. It's grown considerable in that time and now it looks like it's carrying a large egg mass. I guess it's a female.
  14. 40G Soft Coral Reef Aquarium

    Here is the requested tank info. - 40g breeder (36x18x16) - 4x36" Current T5 fixture with ATI Blue Plus, GE 6500 and ATI Aquablue bulbs - B-ionic two-part, 200ml per week and small amounts of Iron and Iodine supplements - 5 gallon water change per week with Tropic Marin salt - 15 gallon sump. No sock (got tired of cleaning it), Bubble-Magus NAC6 skimmer, small GAC reactor and ball of chaeto with LED light. (I rarely run the skimmer and the GAC reactor at the same time. To much skimming and GAC makes the xenias unhappy). - Tunze Silence return pump . I run the return pump at the lowest setting, about 250 gph. I find a slow flow through my sump improves skimmer production and saves energy. - (2) Koralia nano 400 in tank for flow (more random flow would be nice) - I feed my fish and corals twice a day. I feed PE mysis, cyclop-eeze and brine shrimp. I usually turn my return pump off for an hour and let the food circulate through my tank to feed my corals. I target feed PE mysis to my larger LPS corals. The Xenia are the only corals in the tank that show no feeding behavior.
