My 65 Gallon

Recommended Posts

I won this in a facebook name this coral contest a few months ago. I named it toxic grape and the dude sent it to me for free. It did not ship or take to tank life well at all. Bleached, has those SPS hydroids on it, just really had a rough time. Now, it has started to grow and at least get green back. It looks nothing like what it looked like when I first got it. I also fragged a tiny piece that I have on the bottom of the tank which has also started to grow. I am interested in seeing what it looks like in 6 months or so.

Finally got my Kole to take nori. He eats like a starving pig otherwise and ive been feeding algaemax pellets and wafers for the last several months. I built this thing mainly for my blennys and because I hated my algae clip (So did everything else).

Awesome photos! Have you ever considered making prints?

I have not. I would be the only one who looked at them i am certain my wife thinks i already stare at my coral enough. Thank you for the kind words though!

What is your treatment plan? I have extremely good luck with Bayer. I think it was 10ml/4oz. May seem high but it works and my corals didn't seem bothered one bit. They where out and normal looking within hours. 10min dip, blasting every coral with a baster as much as I could. The key is to get them off, the Bayer may not actually kill them, but weakens them so you can get them off. Look closely for eggs, get them off with a tooth brush. Good luck!

I used two rises after dipping. Don't want that stuff in the tank.

So far all the acros in the QT tank have gone through 2 rounds of dipping and are all doing ok. Some are a bit bleached but they are faring better than I expected. I feel like my DT is going through a growth spurt and I am probably going to have to cut the acros that live up and remount them as large frags rather than mini colonies. I do not think I will have the room for them otherwise. Here is an updated FTS.

I am dipping in bayer every 5-6 days and blowing off worms as you suggested.Only found eggs to remove the first day when i pulled them all. I have always done two rinses as well. Bayer is gnarly stuff.

 

 

You have a great looking tank with a lot of colorful corals. I'm looking to buy some. Where do u get your coral from?

Thank you! all of my corals are from guys on this forum or the local stores. I had one piece from online in the beginning before I dipped and I think that is where my aefw came from. Who knows though.

I dipped everything I had once, haven't seen anything going 4 weeks+. Check check every single night with a very bright flashlight, very OCD.

I also had Monti eating nudis that I beat by dipping with Bayer.

Bayer is the stuff of miracles in my eyes. 4oz tank water to 10ml Bayer. Two rinses. Everything recovers perfectly with in hours.
