  1. Aptasia

    I've had luck with "real" peppermint shrimp (Lysmata wurdemanni) , Kalk paste, and most recently a juvenile Pomacanthus Maculosus angelfish that I got from Ranger Daryl. The angel also removed several (all I had) Majano anemones. As long as you got all of the basal disc, it shouldn't regrow.
  2. Majano Pest Eliminator

    It is a really effective device. I had a few Majano's in my tank but within three days of adding Ranger Daryl's angelfish they were all gone.
  3. If your camera uses a through the lens light meter I'm at a loss. If it has a separate aperture for the light meter, it is possible to cover it with tape of a finger to get the flash to work. Other than that, I'm afraid I can't do much more than send you to your camera manual.
  4. It's been a while since I've taken any pictures of my tank. Decided that yesterday was a good time to do it. wish I had a wide angle lens but anyway, let's go left to right. The tank is now almost exclusively LPS and soft corals. Maintenance is almost nothing. Feed the tank every other day (mostly Nori), clean the glass every now and then, do a water change every 3 months or so and that's about all. I don't dose anything. I haven't messed with the skimmer in months (don't really need it). I bring frags to the meetings and use the proceeds to buy salt and fish food. For those of you that want to keep it simple, I recommend softies.
  5. My 65 Tub

    Looks great. Enjoy!
  6. I'm not going to be able to make it. My wife is recovering from surgery and my job is to help her around the house. I hope you all have a great time. If any of you manage to snag a juvenile blue or queen angel keep me in mind. The smaller the better. You all have a great day. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.
  7. Help Feeding Butterflyfish

    I wish you luck with your butterflyfish. Hopefully someone will provide the information. Unfortunately this type of fish usually has a very specific diet which is hard to supply in captivity. That's why you don't find many in home tanks.
  8. Diy - Kalk Reactor

    If you don't feel you need to watch the mixing PVC will work fine and is a bunch cheaper. Good luck with your build.
  9. Whats This?

    Haven't seen anything marine that looks like that. Looks like a terrestrial creature. Possibly an insect that somehow managed to crawl into your tank.
  10. Loc Line Pliars

    The trick worked for me. I've done it several times. Good luck.
  11. Loc Line Pliars

    If you can't find loc line pliers, try heating in the microwave. That should make them come apart and reassemble fairly easily. Think pot holder when handling them as they get real hot when nuked!
  12. I'd stick with a 96"x24"x24" 240 gallon. Probably go with LED lighting and an ASM G4 Skimmer. I'd still stick with LPS and softies. Actually, wouldn't need to make too many changes from what I have now other than lights and skimmer.
  13. This may sound silly but don't use flash. Best pics are taken at night with tank lights only. Use a tripod. Generally, don't shoot at less than 1/30 of a second.
  14. Cleaning Up

    What are you a newly wed or something? I've known that for years. You might also not want to use her basting bulb to kill aiptasia. Once it hits the tank, it's forever contaminated. Even the dishwasher can't get it clean enough!
