I am happy to see you have all the answers in 3 weeks


Unforunately, I live in a studio condo and there is no way to put any more tanks. Along with being a full time college student, and working 45+ hrs a week, I will have to put my lucrative frag business aside.

You can frag in a 10 gallon though Mike.

Seriously, if they start getting too big, fragging just once a month can free up space, give you some extra cash, and keep another coral on the reef. I'm not saying start a frag business, but don't be afraid of it. As soon as I can get a setup, I'm going to convert my 10 gallon into a small frag tank and attempt an LPS fragging session. Fun times.

I was actually planning on setting up a 12 Oceanic Bio-cube soon to go on the island in my kitchen.

Maybe I can incorporate an eggcrate rack for frags?

I'm not sure what your trying to get at so I will just take that with a grain of salt and explain I was merely making a fairly reasonable suggestion. I know several people here locally who frag and sell, not as a business but as a hobby.

You ALL are like enablers to an already serious problem! LOL My bank account came over tonight and slapped me around!

So here are a couple of more pics. The zoo in the pic is expanding so fast it is awesome. It is really cool because it is my favorite one. It is weird because this is the zoo that stays open all the time and if it closes it opens right up. I have another that takes for ever! Is this something to do with health?

Anyway, just a full tank under acintics, cool lucky pick or star, and pick of Emerald Crab in Zoo.

Purty. I'm dissapointed with my tank right now...its completely covered in diatoms...probobly going to kill all the beautiful coraline I had growing nicely...probobly going to kill all of my pods, zoos...and everything else that I know know exists...but hopefully it will go away in time....


You tank is looking awesome bro. keep it up.

Nice looking tank, Mike!

Speakerman, the diatoms will go away. They are totally common in new tanks. Trust me. One day they will be there, you will loook again and they'll all be gone. It happens that fast!

tank

Thanks Lindsay,

Speakerman, I second that. I also doubt it will kill anything. It will probably go away soon. I would try to put any corals in a higher flow and clean them off with the tank water using a turkey baster if you are worried. I clean mine off once a week anyway. Alot of stuff can build up in between polyps.

As far as being dissaponited goes, I have been there many times along with aggravation. I can only suspect that I will go through that many more times. I guess it goes along with this hobby. I have been lucky as not to lose one thing yet, but I am prepared. I think all the aggravation and dissapointment is part of learning that will lead to eventually having an awesome reef.

I was thinking of adding a Goby as my last fish. I really want one, as well as a blenny, but I feel that it would be better for me to wait until I upgrade and then can provide an established and larger tank. I am planning on a 75.

How do people feel about six line wrasses. It is another fish I have always wanted.

update

Just to update on my tank situation. I have just about defeated my hair algae. I did two to three small PWC's a week with RO/DI and I skimmed wet, cut on feeding, and cut back on light. Wooh..That was not to bad. I have seen a few horrific looking tanks.

Now hopefully it will stay gone.
