  1. Smart daughter! Is she now just getting interested in the reef hobby?
  2. My first royal gramma hid, but he did live in Gertie's tank. My second one in my 40g was always out n' about. The pygmy I had to remove though. Just by trying to nip for algae it was causing the rose coral to shut down. And now that my clam is in there I made a good choice for removal.
  3. I was going to post a pic under the Bloomin' tank but it wasn't working, not found so I'll do it here. Hair cut yesterday. This 2/21/17 will be a year since I last dyed my hair. I'm so loving it. Natural is not synonymous with looking old. I predict another 8-12 mos before I'm done. The middle top and back are salt n' pepper but more grey is coming in slowly.
  4. Sounds like a great idea! That's why I love Gertie's tank, just natural looking with just a few corals, hob filter & those little hydor koralia flow pumps. And one fish. I need to clean her tank & have a do over of rock cleaning. I love all the different color macros you have in your signature. I want to incorporate that into this tank. You'll have to educate me some.
  5. Yep! Takes a lot of time. Now Stella said she didn't really purposely feed hers, it ate what floated to it. I'm hoping by feeding them a little every day in the nursery they will grow more quickly. And with those clowns it's why I have to remove them quickly. It's a challenge.
  6. It's not connected to the rock so you can move it. I've had to rotate it, I have several rfa babies on or nearby the rock below.
  7. That's a distinct difference!
  8. Hey, here's a pic of my teeny guy. I don't know if it's a flame or what it is, but also tiny.
  9. I believe Stella said 6 mos to get dime size! I did feed the 3 in the tank here today and the babies in the 40. Now I see just how much the clowns have been taking the food from the babies. They're right there for every flower I feed there, every baby, watching, watching, trying to snatch it from the large tweezers. I FINALLY found 1 new baby, just grey or white but I sucked it up & put it in the Nursery. I haven't see it yet, it could be underneath some gravel so I hope it climbs out. These things when they ball up look like the gravel. Diatoms everywhere and some brown diatom little hairs too. I put one of my scarlet hermits in to help. I'll do a water change on Sunday.
  10. I wanted to share a pic of the branching gsp when it's dark in the tank. Still really cool. I can't believe how fast it grew. Then, March 2016 Now- after I've cut 2 branches twice, like trees it does branch off.
  11. Great! Hi. I'm Annette. I learn so much here. Love this place!! Thanks for joining. My flowers gave birth to 66 nems at Thanksgiving, down to like 30 or so that I can count. So, 3 are now in here, all the others are stuck on the rock in my 40g. And I don't want to chisel away since they're so dang tiny so I'm going to have to wait til they've grown to try pry them off to put them in this grow out tank. My ladies are overdo for birthing so I am hoping it's soon!!
  12. 3 hrs later they're still trying to eat. I guess the clowns always must have finished them off because I'd see all the food gone after like 5 mins mostly. Well, I'm gonna turn the pump & flow on again. I wanted them to have 3 hrs of uninterrupted time without flow to chow down. Guess I'll have to try to cut the pieces smaller.
  13. And I fed at 7, at this time they're still trying to swallow it. But it's soooo cute. You can see the rim of the mouth on this one now so it's getting there. Eventually I want to sell them to my local club and we have 101 members now and you'd have to drive 2 hrs for the possibility of getting one.
  14. Thanks Weetabix. I kept my eyes on tanks I liked and it was the ones that allowed for grow in. I've never had leathers and I can't wait to see them grown.
  15. I'd be loving & caring, just don't anyone try to steal food from my babies, then you're on my chit list.
