Skunks ascending

By: melev | Tags: skunks

Most of the time, the skunk clownfish remain in the tentacles of the Sebae anemone.  Some have migrated to some nearby Duncans and are seen swimming through the green hammers, but the Sebae is their home. When I feed, the harem tends to swim out into the open to get their share.

Cyanide-free fish?

This is a very interesting story, and thus I want to park it here on my site so I can find it in the future.  Being able to detect cyanide to know if a fish is at risk or not is huge.

An exciting development (pun!)

While I was talking to a friend on the phone today, I was gazing at my aquarium and when I spotted this surprising activity, I had to quickly change topics to share my excitement.  The Anemone Cube has been running for 3.5 years, and it was my hope that my clownfish would start laying eggs.

3.5 years later

By: melev | Tags: anniversary

Today marks 3.5 years since the 400g went up for the second time.  November 10th, 2013 was the day all the livestock was moved from the temporary 215g tank into the 400g and the 60g anemone cube. This would be Day 1278.

Excel at what you do

As I go through my daily routine, I often end up recalling things I've done in my past. They seem perfectly normal to me, but often others marvel at what I was able to accomplish.
