    Hello everyone, I was assigned the infamous biology project--Science Fair. The topic can be anything provided it is related to science. Because reefkeeping is practically it's own genre of science, I figured why not pick a topic about my hobby and make this project fun :rolleyes:? However, my...

    Though my wife has had a few things to say about the amount of money the new tanks at home have been costing, close to 2 weeks ago I ended up getting Toyfreak's pair of Bangaiis to try to breed them along with my daughters. The male was carrying eggs at the time. My intention was to put in a...

    Camera now working (well amost) .... on the top are the pics of the plate frags that we discussed earlier. The loose plates grew and fell off the "frag tree" pictured on the bottom. The "frag tree" as I call it was where aquatic wildlife broke up the dying frag and glued pieces of it to this...
