    Have you ever heard of doing a zooxanthellae "transplant"? Many people do that. Basically, you cut a tentacle off of another anemone or a euphyllia, attach it to a piece of food, and feed it to the anemone. Zooxanthellae is present in the cytoplasm of the cells and eating something that contains zooxanthellae will help replenish it.

    Mixing Different Breeds

    As the resident clown nut, I'll explain a few things. Ocellaris and Perculas mix quite easily with each other. I actually have an occy/perc pair. My big lady is an onyx perc and her hubby is a misbar domino occy. You have to be careful with the other kinds, though. Don't mix clarkiis with tomatoes or skunks. Basically, if it's not an occy or perc, don't mix them. I am also against the chromis. Chromis are another kind of damsels, just like clowns, so mixing them wouldn't be a great idea. Let me know if you have any more questions! -Nick
  4. CONGRATS! It's well deserved.

    Meet Jaws and Fluffy

    WOW. I love the names and those fish are STUNNING. My two favorite kinds of clowns are Onyx Percs and MochaVincis.

    Will I succeed with dwarf seahorses?

    I don't know much about this, but I bet @vlangel does.

  8. There's nothing in the tank, so I don't think it will hurt anything.

    New tank general Questions!

    In regards to your CUC concerns, there are no members of the CUC that will eat the nitrifying bacteria. I would advise against hermit crabs because, in my experience, they don't eat much algae and they murder snails. I recommend trochus snails- they eat almost every kind of algae and can flip themselves upright if they somehow manage to get upside-down. As for sand stirrers, conchs and nassarius snails are good options. Check out reefcleaners.org. The best lights for the IM 10 are the Nanobox Mini Tide and the AI Prime HD. Both are good, but have drastically different price points. Most people, if they have an extra shelf in their media rack, will add a light make it a mini refugium with chaeto. The IM skimmers are hit or miss. I have experience with the Hydro Slim SKim and the Aquamaxx NF-1. Both are solid options. With a skimmer, an ATO is a must. I mean no offense when I say this, but it seems like you really need to do some more research on the basics of keeping salt water aquariums, especially before you add corals. If you plan on adding an anemone for your clowns, make sure you read up before you buy one. Also, two clowns are pretty much all you can fit in a ten gallon, especially if you're a beginner. Let me know if you have any more questions. -Nick

    Anenome questions

    He's just stressed from shipping. Drip acclimate him. You have read up on anemone care, I assume?

    Japanese leather care

    Ah. Okay. I see. Toadstools are really easy to annoy. Mine didn't open for about two weeks after I got him. If you move them, they'll stay closed for several days. Plus, once a month, they shed part of their skin, so they're closed up then, too. He's fine. Just give him time. -Nick

    Do you mean the neon green toadstool?

    Need light recommendations!

    You say you won't want SPS.....for now. My AI Prime HDs are great. They're 225 each, I think. You'll need two of them. You can control them via app and they put out a ton of light. -Nick

    Chemistry / Zoanthids not opening..??

    Zoas are just really finicky. They're hit or miss in my experience. I've had some that have opened up immediately after I put them in my tank and others that remain closed for weeks before they settle in. Just get your nitrates under control- I think the issue might be the number of fish. -Nick
  15. That pearlberry is such a stunner! How're the Kenya Tree frags doing?
