    I attended the Columbia Marine Aquarium Club (CMAC) meeting yesterday and had a great time visiting with everyone and watching how to frag corals during the frag clinic. Of course, once it came time to start buying frags I could not resist, so here are some pictures of what I got. This is...

  12. General Reef Discussion
    First one looks almost like a fly larva but it's swimming about and looks like it's spinning... It's moving fast and I had difficulty getting a pix of it so I also got a movie of it... It swims at the top of the tank at times, I tried to grab it but it got away... I'm kind of afraid of what...

    Now that my tank has been set up for a week or so with everything running on the AC Jr, I think my tank's temperature has equalized. It is usually right around 82 in the morning before the lights come on and reaches 85-86 at night by the time the lights shut off. I have the canopy fans...

    Well, I know it is partially my fault, but green hair algae has all but ruined my love of this hobby. My tank has looked like an Irish Chubaka since late November. I had the entire tank disassembled in late January when it was moved from Woodbury to Cottage Grove and the entire tank scrubbed and...

    I just bought my first Anemone and am not sure if I can touch it. I heard they sting but do they sting humans for just fish? Are they poisonous to humans? I am very allergic to bee stings so will they hurt me? The guy at the fish store said they do sting but he can’t feel them anymore because he...

    Ok, so the conference isn't until September, but they extended the cheap registrations (until yesterday). Although a dear friend of mine from college is getting married that same weekend in Boston, husband (who hasn't attended a wedding that he hadn't been in!) was adding plenty of pressure to...

    Hi Everyone! Today has been full of discovery for me and my tank:banana: . Earlier I found some kind of bizarre feather duster we think:idea: . Just now I was looking at Elmo the fd and noticed these things under a bunch of my mushrooms. I think they may be sea squirts? If so are they good or...
