Lucky dog!!!


Howard - glad the new snails are alive, definitely more active that way!

Found one heavily berried TT, and i think another newly berried, but it went under the leaves and couldn't be sure.

Hoping that the little guys start breeding. They are really brght orange with the exception of one pale one and one light orange. Thinking maybe to take those two out, but might wait to see how the babies look when they pop out.

Was supposed to take a trip Sunday to a couple fish stores to find rock flower anemones but was so sick I could barely get out of bed So that didn't happen - will call a couple to verify if they got them in or not and how much and colors - IF they got them. Very iffy around here.

Moving the Gracilaria macro algae out from under the bright light seemed to help it not keep getting bleached. It is looking more normal color the last couple days.

Bought a guppy to maintain cycle on qt tank. Purchased larger net, piece of driftwood and a cave.

Also did routine water change and cleaning on my 29G.

Eventful day by my standards!

Not sure if my 'pod colony is succeeding or failing...

Lots died within the first couple of days but it appears to have a reasonable number still moving about...about 100 by my guesstimate.

The initial count was whatever comes in a bottle of Tigger Pods®

Per the throwback-from-the-sixties kid at my LFS, I set up a shallow tub with about 1" of aquarium water, tinted it green with Phyto Feast Live® and added the 'pods...

Also tossed in a couple of pieces of base rock for the little beasties to play in...

Kid says no air needed due to good surface area...

Patience is the key, I know, but how soon _might_ it become obvious one way or another: success or slow death?

well I got my tank ready last night for some new coral and a tang ,
woke up this morn to find the whole tank rearranged , than I saw little tiny clown fry swimming around , I didn't catch this batch maybe I'll catch the next , I thought it was 10 days to hatch . these guys took 25 days guess they were a oddball batch , guess the bigger fish have a snack today.
once things settle with all the new stuff I'll get some new picts .

OK...will add seaweed to the tank now and again. Thanks!
Now what if I told you I can't swim !

Hi. It must be Saturday again. Did a pwc trimmed plants repositioned rock over airstone. GBR seems kind of skittish and withdrawn. Perhaps the gourami beat him up??
