The things we do to keep our animals healthy

More bad news about the Rose BTA. This guy is really going to be a struggle to keep alive. For some reason, my Cleaner Shrimp just loves that anemone and continues to find a way to get past one barrier after another, and I find it standing in the anemone picking it clean.

Pictures, and a PSA

By: melev | Tags: psa

The partitian is back up protecting the Rose BTA from the cleaner shrimp and the clownfish. I had to hand feed it today, twice. The tentacles simply don't have the ability to hold the food unfortunately. With time and some TLC, I hope it'll regenerate new tentacles.

Doomed

My beautiful Rose BTA has been showing some growth over the past month and a half that I've had it. Isolating it from the Gold Stripe Maroon Clowns, my hope was that it would grow larger (it was quite young and small).

FInding new life

While studying my refugium very closely tonight, I saw a tiny shell move. I watched intently, but it was so small that I had to get a magnification loop to see whether it was a itty bitty hermit crab or a snail.

Details - it's all about the details

Recently, I cleaned out my Aqua C Ev-200 protein skimmer thoroughly. Once I hooked it up, I capped the little drain line on the collection cup so that I could remove the long piece of hose that was never being used anyway.

Today I became a little more important ;)

Last night at our club meeting, the election to choose the new president for DFWMAS took place. This is the first election in the history of the club, as two people ran for office. The members voted, and I'm the new president. :)

Traded a hammer coral for a suncoral

By: melev | Tags:

A DFWMAS club member traded me his beautiful sun coral for a piece of my Hammer coral. Some might not think that is an equal trade, but as far as I can tell we are both very very happy with our exchange.
