    Grants for Teachers??

    Great suggestions as well, thank you! Thanks everyone, I appreciate the suggestions! I guess I am just looking towards what larger organizations offer grants ๐Ÿ™‚

    Grants for Teachers??

    I've thought about that too. I will have to see if I can get it up and running! I'm trying to be a little more active with tank stuff on social media. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Grants for Teachers??

    Thanks for the suggestion, I had tried awhile back and not much luck though - which is why I'm curious to know if there are other grants available ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hereโ€™s the tank as it is right now, can definitely get it into better shape, but having the 10 instead of the 20 makes things much easier!

    Grants for Teachers??

    Hello! I have had a tank in my classroom for the past several years and have not done a great job documenting it with how busy this year has been, but what I am wondering is if anyone has knowledge of ways to help offset costs of the tank or to get it stocked with some more corals? I have received the Pets in the Classroom grant and when I look for others to fund saltwater aquariums, there seem to be very few out there. Any suggestions would be much appreciated - thanks all!

    Glue for corals

    One thing to keep in mind if you go the super glue route, is that it needs to have cyanoacrylate (sp?) in it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Daves/NanoBox Red Sea 170 : New FTS 10/29

    The tank looks great as always and glad everything survived! I wouldn't go the peppermint shrimp route either.... I've lot many acans to them and have talked to quite a few more people who have lost lps because they shrimp had a test for it. I would go with berghias, possibly a matted filefish, or a molly miller blenny if you need to get rid of it. Love seeing updates!

    Seahorse Tank (October Update)

    Yes, if you get the chance, do it! It's such a neat experience going under the water with all of the knowledge that we have from this hobby ?

    Seahorse Tank (October Update)

    Thanks for catching up on this thread (I definitely don't update it often...)! Yes, scuba was INCREDIBLE and I'm looking forward to my next opportunity to dive. Seeing a seahorse was, without a doubt, one of the coolest experiences I've had to date and my ponies at home have been great too ?

    Seahorse Tank (October Update)

    October update... The ponies are all doing well and I am still loving them (although I wish I had a bit more time to enjoy them)! I do pretty small water changes every other day to keep up with the detritus that builds up and to make sure any additional waste is getting syphoned out. I do still have some algae going on, so I am trying to get into a better routine with the larger water changes - trying to keep those to once a week, but looking to increase the volume of them. I would like to work on the scape a bit more too, just haven't had the resources to do so yet. Beyond that, I found a really cool gorgonian about two weeks ago that the ponies have been loving ?

    Innovative Marine Fusion 10 Club

    You can do that, theres a video on youtube I think you can look up - don't have the link though! I just took a hammer and nail to mine... not the sleekest look, but doesn't happen anymore ?

    Tasha's 3rd Grade Tank, Fed by Mr. Rogers

    Absolutely no doubt about that, I have had a lot of students with all kinds of issues use the tank as a calming tool. Helps me re-center and decompress too when things get too busy ?
  15. Looks good ? Always fun to see an update!
