Got some before and after pictures today. The pictures are spaced 2 months apart.
This Briareum and Xenia was placed in my tank on 4/3. On the left is what it looked like when I got and it the right is today. Impressive growth ya?
Next up is my Acropora Millepora, this was my first attempt...
i'm almost done with re-arranging the rocks in my 24G aquapod, and i'm about to start mounting frags in their "final" places :)
this will be a mixed tank (well, it already is); SPS, LPS, zoas, mushrooms
how many branching type SPS can i comfortable put in a tank this size? the SPS will be...
Here are a few pics of the corals as of right now and how they are doing !!! Leave some feedback and thoughts on anything i should/shouldnt be doing !!!
Greetings fellow The Reef Tank-ers,
I figured that a tank profile would make good use of my first post here on TRT. This tank was started in July of 2006 and is my first "real" attempt at keeping a successful reef aquarium (well.. there was a 10 gallon before this one, but it was hardly a...
So our local club had its Frag Fest on Saturday...Here's the loot from that Fun few hours.... I got 5 frags, of which I have 4 pictures
No picture of the Acropora Efflorescence
Here is the Purple Table Acropora
And the Acropora Simplex
And one of the two Pink Birdsnest frags
This thread was started in the GRD area and got moved for me by Whiskey (Thank you). After finding and reading the rules, I came back to edit this post to list what my plans are for contents.
It is a 12G Nano tank kit from Instant Ocean.
A Blue Damsel (Because I think...
jph's 24G aquapod HQI
okay, time to edit my 1st post, and give some factual information, instead of me rambling and guessing at what i'll do.
the plan still remains that i'll be moving my 90 into this 24. but not everything will fit, ofcourse. most of the rock will be up for grabs :)...
After almost 2 exiting years it is time for an upgrade. My 90 Gallon Formosa-Forest is becoming too small, and my propagation tank is packed with Acropora colonies instead of frags.
Tank: Rimless 63" x 40" x 24" (250 Gallon + 90 Gallon Sump)
Skimmer: SURPRISE :D
Flow: 2 Tunze nano...
OK, for your delectation, we have:
a lovely open brain (red/green)
pink acropora millepora (I think...)
Freebie pale acropora (with fluoro green polyps) - thrown in since a tiny bit of the pink acro apparently snapped off
and the most gorgeous elegance coral ever! This guy is huge (must be 10"...
I just thought I would let everybody know if your wanting to pick up some Acros I just left Bio-Reef and they have a blow out sale on them and others All acros $15-$30 including ORA frags I pick up a few !!!
sick clown ? or just beaten up ? update : i think he's going to make it :)
recently i got another small percula clownfish, to replace the one that died.
he looked great, he's very active, and is eating very well. and he's always hanging out withthe other clown (a little bigger) in and around...
All right all you T5 users out there, I need some help. Or maybe just a little clarity in the muddy new world of T5's. Some folks say that T5HO's will only support SPS in the top third of a tank. Others say that T5HO's are so powerful that they may bleach corals near the top of the tank. So...
i went to the LFS, to replace the percula clown that i lost, but they did not have any "true" perculas.
they did have a few REALLY nice looking small sailfin tangs, the smallest one being the best looking one, it was around 2" or so.
i was able to resist the urge to habe it bagged. but now i'm...
