Don't get overzealous

Today is the 3rd day of 2017. What all did you do to your tank over the past couple of days to prep it for the new year? And if you did a lot of things, every wonder if that was a good idea or a bad one...?

Sometimes we get really proactive and attack our system, fixing everything we can while our hands are wet, so to speak. "I'll clean this, adjust that, add this... might as well correct that... remove this, push this over, glue this down, etc.." and it kinda devours your time and you change so many things at once, it can be detrimental.

Christmas time

Three pictures from today of what my reef looked like. No reef-related gifts this year for me, other than some scuba-related ornaments for the tree.

New items added to the shop!

Not a week goes by I don't see new things I like and want to use for my aquarium, and whenever that happens the next step is adding it to my shop for customers to use as well. I just got in a new order from Two Little Fishies today, which included Magnesium Pronto and AccuraSea.  These two items will be very useful: The first one is a Magnesium Supplement that is mixed up at the proper ratio, the second item is to calibrate your refractometer to 35ppt the way you are supposed to do it. Here are the links...

Putting clowns in an anemone

When I got my new clownfish, I was a little worried about how I'd get them into their anemone without incident.  I didn't want the new fish to host in other corals, or even worse get eaten by one of the wrasses.  These clowns are small and seemed like they'd be bite-sized.  A friend suggested I use a PVC pipe to get them down into the Sebae.... So here's the video showing how it went.

Using a frikkin' laser beam
