    Stopped by Tropical Fish Bowl in Lafayette this past week. Snagged my first acropora for the tank out of their display tank.

    This past month I have been slacking on my tank upkeep. No real reason that I can see other than just needing to step back a few and let my tank sorta settle into its second year stretch. Nutrient problems [N=13,Phos=0.05] have risen, but that has plans to fix in the next month. ICP test shows...

    I was getting the test done for see if my Iron was low. It is. I have been on All-For-Reef and would have assumed that it would cover these trace elements. I am in no way dosing for any of that stuff. I did it to try and verify a hunch and to just get a mental view of what my...

    When I saw the fish in there it clicked sooo fast. How does a boy who was raised in the bayous and marsh not see this as a fish trap? if I get a smaller bottle maybe I can just game the open end against the rockwork. Extra laughs, My heart dropped when my eye saw that starfish. Scared me so much.

    I went ahead and ordered one of those bins. I grabbed the one that was 22" tall, I think it should hold around 14 gallons. That should put me near the 2.5-3 week mark for having to fill it back up. ':banana:' I also put in the cart the Osmolator Nano 3152. I will also need to get a float valve...

    Not yet, but that is part of my plan going forward. My area I would grow the chaeto is covered by my RO/DI reservoir sits on top and would just way to complicated to work with. SO! My eyes are wide open looking for a eye appealing RO/DI reservoir that I can have on the outside of my stand which...

    I have a nutrient issue that I am trying to resolve. I have a plan of action but still sucks to deal with but I suppose that is part of the hobby

    I really want another Birdsnest and I believe I may finally add a torch or other euphyllia. I have an area that is on a point in the rocks jetting into a pretty strong laminar flow that is constant. It has been too much flow for any of the LPS I have tried there. It would be a great spot for...

    My largest I ever had was in this tank, easily 2in wide body. I never considered sexing the crabs. Seems like such an easy thing to do with us boys that grew up on the Gulf.

    I have gone through 5 emerald crabs and currently only have 1 small ruby. My Dottyback thinks they taste really good. The only reason the Ruby is probably still around is because she is small enough to hide.
