  1. update: they are coexisting rather well and occaisionally hunt together. both are getting somewhat plump . yes, fatten them up we will...
  2. is this product disparagement? we have tang police and mandarin police, where's the law suit police!
  3. yes indeed they will not eat, save the occaisonal bit of zooplankton. I have tried pellets, flake, mysis and the zoo. they do however love to sand sift and to eat bits of algae on the walls. they remind me of mini mandarins except that they are more omnivorous. I've read that the stomach contents of A. Hectori (it would be interesting to try a necropsy on such a small fish!) contained about half amph/copapods and half algae. I am assuming Rainfori is similar in diet. I've had Hector for a couple months and he has stayed full (no sign of stomach caving etc), I think the refugium (in this case pumping in tons of copapods) has something to do with this success and also a number of other health miracles for a tank as small as mine (29g). They generally hunt for about 8 hours and then sleep/hide for the rest of the day...
  4. Ah the beautifully artificial harmony of A. Rainfodi hunting with A Hectori. Now that the clownfish are in a separate facility, this tank is completely goby territory. Soon they will take over the world, muhuhahahahaha!
  5. Thanks, it was deemed "doomed to RTN" by the most snobbiest LFS around (a place where scoffing is part of the deal...). She said "you don't have a calcium reactor?!" when i bought it for a reduced price and I shook my head in the negative. I think the refugium might have something to do with the health of the lps. any ways the maze is fricken sweet, thanks for the complement!
  6. The overhead view is of me in a maze... The tissue recession around the base and in the second (further) hump has begun to grow back in the week since placed in the tank. If there is no CNS how does the colony know to grow where?
  7. yessir, you too aparently... are you going to the meeting? My gf's grandmom lives in hammond. I am growing a damn zooanthid farm over here, I have five morphs and some other soft and lps' if you ever want to trade etc. bob
  8. the final installment, for now! bob
  9. round four, thanks for the input (i am recording all of these and will remember those who help me out for future frag offers/trades... ) bob
  10. they're under 250w Aqualine 20K MH,
  11. And round three? I think these are orangeyish...
  12. round two? help a colorblind brotha out yo!
  13. I like corals as much as the next guy (probably a bit more I suspect) but I have a notible disadvantage in describing them due to my medium-strength color blindness... my girlfriend tells me everything is brown. help me! what color are these zoos? I have three more to ID.
  14. This is a nice colony of x-mas trees (Spirobranchus giganteus?) in a porites about the size of a baby's fist. They are not very big but I occaisionally spoil them with a target feed when I am feeling especially benevolent. The filtering element of the worms seem to be growing very slowly...
  15. nice tank, i disagree with blanket statements regardign your alleged overstocking. There is no direct formulaic calculation for determining this. I would concede you probably should not add more right away but if the water is clean and the fish are stress free, what's the problem. get some backing and you will truly be rockin!
