    Who's Up For a Macroalgae Trade?

    Is anyone interested in starting the trade back up?

    WTB Macroalgae

    Hey everyone, I'd like to buy some macro algaes that are is not chaeto. It seems like macro is out of season and most places are out of stock, except chaeto. Im looking for different types like Codium, Cymopolia barbata, Halimeda sp., Rhipocephalus phoenix, Halymenia durvillei, among others. Let me know what you have and how much you are offering your macro for. Thanks!

    Petco ONLINE purchasing

    I can tell you that the employees in the store can ship premixed saltwater (Imaginarium Brand) to your door and waive shipping. This is what I did before I found an LFS. I would expect the same to be true for livestock, but I guess it boils down to the employees helping you.

    Emerald crab keeps killing my clown fish!

    just found out my green emerald crab has killed and is currently eating my royal gramma! my tank is algae free and i always make sure i feed my emerald every day (he comes out at 9pm sharp for pellets, mysis, ocean plankton, what ever i feed that day). wondering where my royal gramma went, he is always swimming in the water column, i was peering in all sides of the tank and i see his face in the shadows. further back i can see his flesh being eaten by my green mithrax! he's a dead man once he comes out of the rockwork. no more mithrax for me!

    cheato keeps dying

    my chaeto keeps dying as well. i have cyano bacteria so im assuming i have enough nitrates for maco algae to grow. its kinda demoralizing haha i have a green thumb with potted plants but i cant keep aquatic plants to save my life.

    2.5 Pico.

    skipped a water change knowing what would happen just so i could see it first hand. So the algae is bloomin a bit but the snails are barely keeping up. i still havent scraped the front glass free of algae. guess im just too lazy! ive added the skeleton of a Lobo that died at my LFS. I soaked it in bleach over night, ran it under hot water for hours to get the bleach out, then let it air out for 4 days. I stuffed the chaeto down behind the rocks so you can no longer see it. it seems to be doing well. My peppermint shrimp went straight for the lobo skeleton and started digging through it. Ive dubbed him swiper from dora the explorer because he will reach in the suncoral and steal food. Anyway, swiper found remnants of lobo flesh and ate them. The suncoral is much healthier than when i first got him. The middle polyp has finally filled his 'space' and will soon over grow it. I also moved some stuff around opening up the center and creating a more balanced look i think.

    At my lfs the live rock that has no coraline algae is $9.99 (8.99 if you buy over 20lbs), and the "good" stuff with coraline algae is $14.99. now thats overpriced.

    Snowflake's Transparent Reef

    i think it would look better if you but the branching rock in or behind the other rock. i personally dont like seeing the "trunk". Was the rock you put in there live or dry?

    2.5 Pico.

    You're right about it sticked out. i might shove it down behind some of the rocks. im thinking about moving everything into my empty 10 gallon tank and having the 2.5 as a refugium. I'll probably get around to that when the weather gets warmer and i feel like doing something besides sleeping. i'd love to get some nice colored zoanthids, and some non-photosynthetic gorgonians, possibly a feather duster or 2. If a nice dersa clam comes through my LFS i might pick that up and put it in my tank although it'll suck all the calcium out of my tank. There's a lot i'd love to do just need to find the time to research everything.
