Bleached Bubbletip Anemone Update

The ‘Nem has taken some food every other day so far. It is definitely not “sticky” with the food yet and it has to be coaxed into it’s mouth. It has deflated quite a few times but on the bright side there is certainly a darker yellow tinge coming to the tentacle tips. I have read they tend to colour from the base of the tip but we shall see. Bonus pic of the day: top down jawfish: … Read entire article »

Day 70 video and the BBA club

Following on from my last post I was lucky enough to have Scott Fellman confirm that I am indeed seeing new growth, In fact in the ensuing days many new sprigs of Halophila are sprouting through! I am also seeing new blades on the Cymodocea. I will post some pictures tomorrow. The only plant not to show any visible new growth is the Syringodium – which is odd considering it initially appeared to have taken well to transplanting. It still looks healthy but it is certainly less dense than it was. I’d also like to thank Scott for his invaluable help by plugging his great article: http://reefbuilders.com/2010/01/23/slipping-into-seagrasses-making-the-case-for-aquariums-going-green/ Scott also brought up some points in discussion I should address.

Day 56 Video, pH probe added

Attached is the bideo from Day 56. Some notes from the Trenches… The Kole Tang had 5 days of looking happy as Larry and eating all the diatoms in the tank, hoovering up flake and frozen food. Now he has had two days of sulking under the branch rock. A little bit of a worrying trait for a Tang. Currently, because it looks in good colour and is still quite alert and mooching about under there it may be it has a sore mouth / some other minor ailment. Certainly can’t be aggression and all the tank tests were spot on. On the note of ┬áparams – I calibrated and added the pH setup today. This will eventually have two probes – one connected and controlling the calcium reactor. The fighting conch has been … Read entire article »

Day 42 Video, Seagrasses inbound, New fish on horizon

Amwell have ordered my seagrasses and they should be here on the 19th!! …and I have reserved a Jawfish at the LFS. I’m guessing it is probably an undocumented species. Certainly doesn’t seem to match any on fishbase. I have seen mention of a “Ruby” Jawfish but it was never formally identified. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vQUyHTc8so … Read entire article »
