    Second Dragonet?

    Since it's been over a year and a half since this thread was posted I'd figured I'd give an update for all the doubters lol. I still have my spotted mandarin, he is still fat and healthy. I have never had to add pods to the tank and I have never trained him to eat frozen food and I have never observed him eating any of the other food that gets added to the tank. I'll post back in another year and let you know how it's going 😉
  2. Does anyone know what happened to house of sticks? Seems they just disappeared this time last year.
  3. I am selling my custom dual Nanobox Duo's plus M w/bluefish controller. I had Dave wire together two Duo's for me in January of 2016 and they have been amazing! It just had a brand new driver assembly installed. So this thing is really like new. These will be perfect for anything up to 48" Unlike the quad these do have the moonlight channel. The only channels that can be controlled independently are the whites. All other channels effect both fixtures equally. Mechanically 10/10 - Like new, runs flawlessly Cosmetically 9/10 - The fixtures have just a couple of minor dings and nicks, nothing you are going to notice with them on the tank. The bottom of the control box is kind of scratched up from where I had used adhesive to mount it to my tank stand. But nothing a quick coat of paint wouldn't fix if it bothered you. Asking $500 including shipping to lower 48 and PayPal fees PM me any questions. Thanks!
  4. I have kept many different wrasses and IMO flashers really need more space. The one's I had were so active I think they would really stress out themselves and the other tank inhabitants. A sixline would most likely be aggressive, especially when older, and it's a pod eating machine. Almost all small wrasses will out compete the scooter for pods so you may want to avoid them altogether. Have you considered a blenny of some kind? They are by far my favorite nano fish. So much personality. I would recommend a tailspot, bicolor or at most a Midas for that size tank.
  5. I just purchased a t247 for my 20 long and so far it seems great. It may not have a ton of par on the far ends of the tank but visually it lights it very well. I have it hanging about 6” from the surface. From my research it is a much better light than the viparspectra. SB reeflights is even better and comes with the stand as well. Only reason I didn’t get one was because I had a ton of amazon gift cards and you have to buy sb directly from them.
  6. Its been a long time since I've been on here, but life has finally slowed down enough for me to start dedicating more time to my hobbies. So to start I decided to finally post a thread on my 2 year old tank. All soft corals and nems. 6 RFA, 7 Mini Maxi, 2 bubble tip (clone) Current tank inhabitants: Red Firefish Purple Firefish Grey Head Wrasse (king of the tank ) Ruby Head Fairy Wrasse Leopard Wrasse Spotted Mandarin Banggai Cardinalfish Kole Tang Flame Angel Royal Gramma Azure Damselfish Maroon Clown (finally discovered the nems ) Cleaner Shrimp (going on 5 years old) CUC is an assortment of crabs and snails but I have 4 astraea snails that are over 4 years old. I also have 4 conchs that do an amazing job. This was taken yesterday, it had been almost 3 months since my last water change. I stopped trying to clean that far side, give the snails something to do lol. Shortly after a long overdue 30 gallon change. Surprisingly the tank has been in great shape over those 3 months and everything has been thriving. I don't dose or really even test for anything anymore. The only maintenance that was done was trimming the chaeto and changing filters every 3 days, but not always consistent. (first picture and both videos were taken before the change and I only cleaned the front and right side panel of glass). I feed LRS soaked in selcon once a day and all fish appear to be in great health. I don't run a skimmer, only carbon in a bag. My sump is just a simple fuge that has a crazy amount of pods and other good critters in it. Keeps the Mandy fat and happy. I also don't try and micro manage things, just set it in place and let it grow. I know its nothing too impressive, but I'm happy with it for the very low amount of maintenance it requires. I'll update with more info later on when I get some more time.
  7. Thanks, I didn't realize there was anyone else from Greenville on here.
  8. Like new, Current Marine LED 24"-36" - $85 shipped to continental US. Pm if interested. Thanks!
  9. I'm selling my used Nuvo 20 and stand. It was used for about a year and is in pretty good shape. No scratches that I can see. It does come with the pump but does not have any media baskets. Located in Greenville, SC Pm me if interested. Thanks!
  10. Looks more like hair algae than Dino to me.
  11. I really like blennies for their personality. Tailspot or Midas depending tank size.
  12. imho a fuge that small really isn't worth bothering with.
