What's that little thing?

By: melev | Tags:

Shooting a few shots with my macro lens yesterday, I spotted an oddity on a branch of the staghorn coral and focused on that area momentarily.  It looks like a SPS polyp captured a small piece of a LPS hammer's tip that came off somehow. It's about the right size and shape.

Dosing Containers [video]

Part of what is sold on my site is built by me.  Here's a quick video showcasing two different sized triple-doser reservoirs that I recently built.  You can order the standard sizes offered or I can build something custom to suit your system's needs.

Super cute, right?

Since MACNA, I've really enjoyed the mated pair of Golden Dwarf Moray eels I brought home.  They are quite active and out any time food hits the water.  While they live in the rockwork most of the time, one or both will swim in the open looking for food.

Comparing PAR of new & old bulbs

By: melev | Tags: reefbrite

I recently purchased some new ballasts and bulbs for the 400g.  I've been observing the livestock and debated whether to change the current configuration to only 250w bulbs or to upgrade all the way across to 400w bulbs.

Interviewed at Reefapalooza Orlando

Thomas Brown did a nice compilation of the interviews at RAP-Orlando, and my interview is interspersed within several segments of the episode.  I made it a point to mess with him the entire time, so it would be fun.
