    Kat's METROpolitan: Retired May 2018

    The move was not as troublesome this time around I hope? My 60G has gotten a bit of a FL biotope theme going. I just need more corals to fill it up.

    Anyone know what these are?

    First is a Cup/Scroll coral. the second is a zoa. If you are looking for a fancy name, got nothing.

    what is this

    aptasia or ball anemone would be my likely guesses at this point. If it had not been out before it could have been hiding in a hole and lost most of the pigment. Likely will want to remove it.

    I believe that is the UV, so not visible to you.

    Killing hydroids for a dwarf seahorse tank

    This is a good read: http://seahorse.com/forum/hydroids-my-dwarf-tank It does mention a heat treatment of +92 for 3-5 days can eliminate most Hydroids.

    Reef safe spray paint

    You can find 48" * 24" eggcrate, or Krylon Fusion https://www.saltwateraquarium.com/fraggrid-black-egg-crate-48-x-24-total-3-pc-22-75-x-15-25-deep-blue/

    ATO with surge device?

    You should be able to place the ATO at the lowest point you ever want the display to go...That way no matter what level the surge tank is at it would never go a set level.

    ATO with surge device?

    Just came up with a second idea....If the Surge tank is empty you can put ATO at MAX level of display.

    ATO with surge device?

    Wouldn't the Surge tank be holding a set amount of water as a Max? Say a 5G tank and 1G surge for simplicity....the Surge tank fills slowly to hit the 1G mark and then dumps all contents, closes and fills back up. As long as the surge tank takes longer than 15 min or whatever to fill and then STOPS filling it allows your ATO to turn on and fill the display to the desired level.

    AI Prime HD or XR15 pro gen 4?

    after owning a Prime I would go XR15 for this tank size and need to grow SPS

    What may this be??

    Second pic makes it look like a Chiton....either way you can leave it in the tank.

    Critter keeper lid?

    Glass/Acrylic hunk would work, but better option would be to make one with clear netting or something similar to this: https://www.bulkreefsupply.com/1-8-clear-netting.html

    Mangroves Outdoors

    The issue is actually the roots, as they are very fragile and break easy. So if they are free floating now, you might want to try and keep them that way. Pulling out of sand at the end of summer has the potential of killing all the roots they put down.

    Identify this coral

    John deer Leptastrea would have been my guess

    how can i keep copepods population?

    A dragonet can eat as many pods as you can produce in that tank. The fuge is a good start, but will also need to feed Phyto a few times a week to increase the population. HOWEVER, a better idea would be to stabilize the tank where you can see pods and then find a dragonet that eats frozen already. There are plenty that do out there, and a good LFS will feed a fish while you watch. Make sure they eat it and not take in and spit right back out. I have had them eat frozen brine and mysis before and that is your better option IMO.
