    I've discovered a unique cap that allows me to more efficiently hatch baby brine shrimp. It is also capable of potentially being used for phytoplankton and zooplankton culturing. I created a turtorial to show how it can be used for a brine shrimp hatchery. I'm going to convert my phytoplankton...

    Now that Im back on track with getting the 150 done, I need to figure out what method to use for keeping calcium up. It is going to be a BB SPS system. I have a good sized sump (about 35g) and the plumbing isnt in yet so I wont have to adapt already existing set ups. What I want is a way of...

    Greetings, One of my 4 banggai cardinals (male) is carrying already hatched babies in his mouth. I presume he is in his 18-20th day since you can actually see the fry in his mouth. Here is my dilema: Since i was not really prepared for this, i do not have a breeder setup. 2 choices: 1)put...

    When I got home today I noticed one of my engineer gobys had a very large belly. I have three in a 125 with sand bed. These are the type you see on the Aquacon web site. Do these generally reproduce or spawn in the aquarium? I had my wife come down and look and she noticed the difference...

    In my journey through Wal Mart to find a 10g QT tank (BTW, too expensive there, $ 49.97 versus Pet Supermarket $ 34.88) I came across this box of Triops... What the heck is that and can I feed it to the fish? I have a brine shrimp hatchery, and they are so tiny, the fish need glasses to find...

    Hello all. As usual I am an endless font of questions. We are setting up quarantine tanks with water from the tanks we have already cycled with LR. I say quarantine tanks in plural because I don't yet know the limits of fish a quarantine tank should hold. I have a 10 I'm setting up and a 20...

    realdwarfseahorse · The Real Dwarf Seahorse I started one of those Yahoo groups with the name above. I guess I am trying to see if there is an interest in this area for raising them besides Jenn, since I just had another Brood on April 15th.
