Well, I know
Dr. Shimeck's qualifications, but I don't know where to find Steves to see how he is qualified to make this judgment. Can anyone direct me as to where I find them? Unfortunately I don't know Steve so I don't know how to take his posting at this time.
know that if I listened to many of the hobbyists I've encountered over the last 11 years, I would never have found out that I can keep almost any softie and LPS
coral normally kept in a reef tank, and under just normal 40 watt fluorescent lighting. I was told I couldn't keep my sebae anemone, nor my clams under the lighting I have.
I was also told I couldn't keep cleaner wrasses.
That being said, I was also told by Dr Shimeck and many hobbyists, that I had to feed my anemones and my corals. I don't do that either, at least not directly. I feed my fish and the corals like the anemones and everything else, fend for themselves getting what they can from the water column.
I'm certainly not qualified to pass judgement on Dr Ron, and, after seeing Steves pictures, I doubt very much I'm qualified to pass judgement on his statement regarding Dr Ron. Now where the heck do we go from here?
