  1. Meanwhile here are some of the few photos that turned out ok enough after experimenting with the new T6. Boring ol' Mushroom, this photo actually makes it look more impressive than it does in real life. (one of my first corals) Cool sponge-like-thing? Hard to photograph. Sexy shrimp, big ol' feather star in the near distance. "Gator Sparkler" Pavona - are these polyps coming out on one side, or something else?
  2. Does it move? Does it retreat during night or during day time? What happens if you attempt to/grab it with tweezers or something?
  3. Got myself the AQUAMAXX HOB-1 SKIMMER. (just need an RO/DI system and the new tank is ready for setup) Meanwhile, I want to switch from using the AC110 to using the Aquamaxx HOB instead, any precautions I should be taking? Should I slowly discard the filtration media (purigen and chemipure) or can I just ditch it all and setup the skimmer? What kind of experiment!?

  5. I'd send ya my GSP for free if you lived closer, haha.
  6. Pineapple sponges
  7. Awesome!!! I want to see more!
  8. I have a "Hidden Cup Coral" Phyllangia americana that hitchhiked with my live rock. I didn't even discover it until about 6-7 months after getting the rock. It survived all that time without being spot fed. Now I feed it every other day at least. A new baby head popped up on a different rock just a couple weeks ago. The other day I caught the larger or the two literally eating a whole dwarf cerith snail!! Pics of it on my thread if anyone wants to see them.
  9. I got a couple gfci wall outlets installed near my tank. For the power strip I use an AmDJ which has individual switches for each outlet, it's awesome. (got it on amazon)
  10. nice!
  11. Look at that new little duncan head I'm such a proud mom. Finally got the Cyphastrea to spread onto the tank wall, just in time for me to transfer to a new tank. Contemplating just having two tanks.... Maybe I'm crazy.
  12. Got a dslr to use for work. Brought it home to test out on my tank and let me just say wow. Not only does it at least accurately depict what my tank and corals look like in real life, it almost makes them look better! Now I just have to figure out the easiest quickest way to resize some photos and share them with you all Here's a sneak peak. On second thought that still looks TERRIBLE. I have a lot of learning to do. Bare with me guys. It's definitely stiff and scruffy. Pretty certain it's just turf algae and not something to be worried about cause it's not spreading obnoxiously. Here's a neat photo of it under a $7 microscope for my phone camera...
  13. Soak and clean everything thoroughly in a vinegar and water mix. I have bought lots of used equipment and never had an issue. Unless you're purchasing anything living (sand, rock, etc) you don't have to be worried about hitchhikers, if you clean everything properly.
  14. WHAT A CUTIE! I'm so jealous. Want.
