  1. Hey there, I'm wondering If I can get some input on a massive dino outbreak I'm having. I have fairly high nutrients but it is a mangrove and macro tank so I struggle to keep the levels high enough without starving the macros. Could anyone help me ID this strain of dinos? They reproduce so fast and my corals are really struggling. It's taking a lot of the joy from reefing when I clean everything and the next day it's covered in a brown snot-like sludge. I'm going to try a few things, including raising the temperature to 82 for a few days to begin.

    Microscope for reefing

    So I've been seeing some posts which say that even a toy microscope (as cheap as $10) provides enough magnification for things like identifying dinos. So now I'm getting interested in getting an inexpensive microscope. It looks to me that AmScope makes some basic inexpensive toy and student microscopes. I assume that this M28 (1200X max resolution) is the "$10" scope that people are referring to. I'm tempted to try it, as I wouldn't be out very much. Maybe more sturdy (with a metal arm and plastic storage/carry case), but doesn't seem substantially superior to the "$10" scope, is their M30 (1200X) scope, for $35. For $56, you can get an entry level student microscope. The AmScope M102C (1000X) appears to be less of a toy. However, it doesn't offer a fine focus adjustment, and the light isn't adjustable. I'd like to keep it under $100, but now I'm kind of drawn towards an OMAX (2000X to 2500X max resolution), which starts between $200 and $300 depending on the model. Plus I sort want to have a camera to capture photos and videos. However, back to reality, I'm really just going to use this for reefing (plankton, diatoms, dinos, maybe pods), so I don't want to get ahead of myself. I mean, I was initially going to get an $11 scope. Still, I don't want to spend $56 on something that's frustrating to use. For $90, I think I like the AmScope M150C (1000X) which has coarse and fine adjustments, and the light is also adjustable. Plus, I could add a camera later on. I thought I'd share what I found. But I'd also like to know if I'm on the right track. Would I be that much better off getting an OMAX (2000X to 2500X), or is the $11 toy scope (1200X) actually good enough? Currently I'm thinking that the AmScope M150C (at just 1000X) might fit the bill, as well as my budget, pretty well.
  3. Anybody want to see an amohipod that climbed out of a coral frag? I took a picture of its eyeball because it was super intense and thought you'd like to see it!! and the eyeball under the microscope Yes!!!
