    If anyone keeps these corals, Let's see your pictures and any observation you might have seen.

  3. Pectinia

    For those thinking of keeping Pectinia in their tanks. This is a very resilient coral; however, it is also a very aggressive coral. In the picture above, the Space Invader has been in my tanks for about three or four years and was grown from a 1/2" frag. Currently, the coral is about 6 or 7 inches in diameter. The Rainbow has been in my tank for about 1 1/2 years and has colored up a bit, but only grown about 1/2" total. Here are my observations concerning pectinia: Lighting: Moderate to Low seems to work best. Water Flow: Moderate to Low...Lower end works best for me. Placement: Low in tank, at least 6 inches away from any coral, and on a rock that can be easily moved as it grows. Temperament: Very Aggressive. According to online resources the pectinia will put out 3 to 4" sweepers. I've witnessed 6" sweepers on my space invader. This coral is a the bad A$$ on the block and will easily kill anything it touches. I used to have a galaxia and I think I would give it a run for its money on killing. This is why I recommend a movable rock. Water Quality: Standard parameters for 1.026 or 1.025 Salinity marine tank. Of note: this coral really seems to like nitrates in the water column. When I was dosing Potassium Nitrate, this coral was inflated the most I've ever seem. My space invader has tolerated some really big swings in water quality and tank temperature. The exception in Alkalinity. If the alkalinity drops to low this coral will deflate almost completely and start dying shortly after. Feeding: Although not necessary to feed, the coral loves meaty foods similar to other LPS corals. I also think it helps with growth.

  7. Upgrading Problems

    Ok. I reset our old look until I can get this fixed. I now know how to fix ( I think), but it is going to take some time. So it will have to wait. When I have a few hours to devote to this, I will upgrade the site again. It will also require us to upgrade a few other things.
  8. Sorry for the inconvenience. I'm trying to upgrade the site; however, I've run into problems. The site will look different but should work.
  9. Upgrading Problems

    I have a support request in. Hopefully IPS can figure it out.
  10. Upgrading Problems

    Upgrades are continuing to cause issue. I will bring back the new look once the upgrades are complete.

    Very Cool Site!!! I wonder if they will eventually make it a true live feed. If they do, I will add it to our site.
  15. Yuck!!

    Now that is funny! Been there done that. LOL
  16. Little help

    Did you just add the GFO? That could defintely be the issue...especially if you added too much too fast.
  17. Questions about montipora...

    Both of them are encrusting (primarily).
  18. Little help

    If you decide to use the "Stump Remover" (Potassium Nitrate), it really needs to be spread out over several doses. However, it does NOT really add much to your potassium level (almost none in fact). But it will increase your nitrates. I've used it with good results, but use caution. Happy Reefing.
  19. Little help

    I do not think it is a lighting issue. I would raise your nitrates a bit and check your potassium.

    welcome. Look for to your experience.
  25. GRAND RE-OPENING

    If someone out there hasn't had a chance to stop by their new location, you really should... Lots of room... They are still working, but in my opinion this is building up to be one hell of a LFS. The coral selection looks great now and still growing with lots of room to expand. Huge marine fish area and a nice selection of freshwater fish in there own separate fish room. I was really impressed and will definitely be watching the future of this LFS.
