I picked up two more corals today. I can't help myself! They are so darn pretty, and they needed a new home, right?
Maze or Brain
I was able to capture another plate coral yesterday when it blew off the main skeletal structure. I put it in the Pico tank inside a Salifert beaker to keep it safe from being sucked into the pump.
Also, Casper seems to be changing colors somewhat. I think he looks nice. :)
Suncorals have become more popular recently, so I thought I'd post this in my Personal Logs again for any new visitors to my site.
Here is the link to my page about my Suncoral. Included are two links to other articles that are must-reads, in my opinion.
I have a video of my feeding it: Feeding a Suncoral 3.8 megs
I updated several webpages on my site with easy shortcuts at the top, to help people navigate my site more easily. :)
That's it, the Rose BTA is no more. I tried everything in my power to keep it alive, but last night it heaved its final breath, and all day today it lay like a sad deflated puddle in the protective container it's been in for the past 10 days. I removed it before the tank was polluted.
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). However, my Skunk Cleaner shrimp has been stealing its food right out of its mouth/belly when I would walk away!!!
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.
I'm trying to increase the pH in the 55g reeftank, so today I hooked up an airpump in the garage that pushes in "fresh" air into the tank. The outlet of the tubing blows into the intake of the protein skimmer, but I'm not sure if that will make much of a difference. If this doesn't work, I'll have to patch a pencil-sized hole in the wall. ;)
