  1. Natalia's Art Project Pico Contest Build

    Thanks @metrokat GSP would lend itself really well to this sort of thing. I almost (almost!) wish I had a bigger tank because I could think of a ton of weird ways to mix coral and sculpture.

    New FBS By the way @Clown79, I used some thread to tie down the wandering nephtheas. Now they’re all on one statue and are showing better polyp extension. Hopefully they’ll anchor themselves over time.

    @debbeach13 yup

    Teasing some new acquisitions and a new sculpture

    Thank you @Clown79 I’ll try the fishing line. I used paper clay to make the sculptures. It’s basically a fine porcelain mixed with paper pulp. The paper adds to the structural integrity of the clay during sculpting. Then when it’s fired in the kiln, the paper burns away, leaving a porous clay sculpture.

    It did stop The rest of it is fine, great polyp extension. I think it’s because those areas are shaded. I’m hoping the RTN’d parts will get covered with zoas, since the zoas are so much more tolerant of shade.

    A. Leave it as it is because we would have no idea there were any scratches if you hadn’t mentioned it. it looks super awesome

    I can’t say enough what a difference it makes to wait a couple of days between the weekly feeding and the water change. The zoas are looking so plump and happy. And the little rainbow goniopora that I thought was a goner is definitely coming back.

    Water changes FTW @Lula_Mae! They’re sooooo easy with picos! I still can’t get over how easy and awesome these bowls are. Inorite? Btw, no changes in this bowl lately. Apart from the wandering nephtheas, things are stable. Stay tuned

    I would think the lighting might be influencing the zoa color too. I hope they color up for you!

    @Felicia I sent it to you on January 16

    @teenyreef exactly!!! Makes it a lot easier to travel with peace of mind.
  13. Natalia's reefbowl: February 2018 Update

    Ha, my fam doesn’t know much about corals either. It helps that the maintenance is very simple and infrequent. Also, no feeding or dosing to mess up!!!

    As mentioned in my main reefbowl thread, I took an 8-day trip last week. My art pico did okay, but not as well as the main reefbowl, maybe because the former isn’t as well established. Also, I cannot get those new nephtheas to stay put on the new sculpture! So I’m going to let them go where they want to go, and put something different on the new sculpture. Happily, the new acans are doing well. Here are the current pics. Need to clean that glass and maybe get another trochus snail!

    February update: I took an 8-day trip overseas last week. To be safe, I asked a family member to do an 8-ounce water change and RODI topoff every 2-3 days. It went well! These pics are from the day after I got back.
