    They kinda look like Twizzlers, IMHO https://www.google.com/search?q=wwc+twizzlers&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjx_9_v1ZfbAhUP0lMKHfk9B74Q_AUICigB&biw=1920&bih=1014#imgrc=sd3dTjET_gWihM:

    Raindog's 7g Waterbox

    Once I got passed the stock pump, absolutely loving it! Very high quality glass work and seems. It is unreal how much clarity this container has compared to my plain-jane Aqueon 20 gallon, the Starfire glass is for real! I would also add that their (Waterbox) customer support is fantastic! Thank you all so much! We love him too 😉

    H2O2 - Who uses it as a general algae prevention?

    I didn't, was running ChemiPure elite at the time. We've switched to ChemiPure Blue now, in any case, it didn't seem to cause any issue for us!

    Pfft...skimmers are for people with money! lol, I've never used a skimmer 😉 What do they say when you tell them about your Long and Dirty? Witchcraft! lol

    H2O2 - Who uses it as a general algae prevention?

    I agree, although this is/was commonplace as a regular system: *Edit: This system also aids in gas exchange 😉

    H2O2 - Who uses it as a general algae prevention?

    I am a believer and advocator of the H2O2 method, I beat an outbreak of dinoflagellete that nearly claimed my reef with the stuff! The only corals that even seem to notice it are zoas, and only for a couple minutes after dosing (H2O2 precipitates very quickly...I think that is the correct term?) Something to note, is that you do not dose 1mL per 10 gallons of tank, but of actual water volume (my 20g is actually only 15 gallons of water, my 7g is only 4 gallons!) I will also note, that we even dosed 1mL per 10 gallons every 12 hours for several days during the beginning of the fight with the dino, and it was extremely successful. I do not use H2O2 dosing regularly, but it is something that has been used in aquaria since the early 1980s, and is still rather popular in Germany. The best advice I can give anyone is to research...read...read...read! Only you can decide to take the risk!

    My 7g is coming along nicely! I probably need to update my build thread, but it is choochin' along nicely!

    Raindog's 7g Waterbox

    Haven't taken any good pics yet, but we added some clove polyps, frogspawn, and a piece of lepto to the reef.

    Would you consider local pickup? If so, what part of Florida are you located in?

    Life...finds a way!

    Blasto growth question

    They grow faster if you feed them! Mine ate a whole ghost shrimp last night...lol...although they normally get a blend of reef roids and cyclop-eeze with the occasional piece of frozen krill.
