Cooling with fans

By: melev | Tags:

I added some cooling fans to the 55g's canopy finally. Since the water temperature has been reaching 83F and we aren't even in summer yet, I knew it was time to get this done. Over the weekend, I modified the woodwork and reflector to allow for the cooling fans.

Got a new coral today :)

The Rose BTA looks good sometimes and at other times it looks near death. I updated that webpage today. If you've wondered how badly they can look, this is the page to see.

A gift from a friend.

Yesterday, I was able to net the Ocellaris (False Percula clownfish) from my 29g and put it in the refugium. I'd like to catch the larger female as well, so the BTA can be left alone for a while to finish splitting or grow. It is just not doing well with the clowns in it all the time.

The Crown Conch

By: melev | Tags: crown conch

Day before yesterday, to my surprise, my Crown Conch appeared. It lives in the refugium under my 29g reef, and is always submerged beneath the sand where it can't be seen. I really enjoyed watching it travel around in the open, and took a number of pictures.

That was odd.

My 29g had a strange event occur. As you may have read, my BTA split about a month ago approximately. Then about a week ago another little guy split off as well.

Will they or won't they...?

Peaches, the Anthias I bought, is actually a Threadfin Anthias according to one site I read. She seems more and more comfortable staying out in the open, but does cautiously hide in the rockwork if I'm around the tank too long.
