  1. gobies are cool,mines hangs in my hairy mushroom thought for sure the mushroom would eat the goby so far so good
  2. Ok it has been awile so i'll update,My shark jumped out of the tank and died so that was a hard hit.Laid low for a bit then got back into things,I took my 6 gallon down went to a 10 gallon.put all Lr in the 75 turning that into a reef took the 67 gallon down put Goldies in that.30gallon then went to dragon fish and flounders.6gallon now holds my hermit crab.Got a 265gallon for shark but since he is gone I'll get another later but here are a few pics.I setup a 2.5 gallon with 3 clams and some mushrooms http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4639-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4640-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4643-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4663-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4665-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4667-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4669-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4696-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4699-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4689-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...IMG_4794-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4741-vi.jpg http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nom...CRW_4702-vi.jpg or look at them all http://s14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nomadfkr/
  3. Youll be back,Mama wants me to calm down last month power bill was $637.00.So now I don't watch tv as much
  4. Come on now get a little creative go get a breeder box with holes in the sides put some LR rubble in there add some xenia put it at the top so star cant get in(worth a try)
  5. looks nice,There are some people that keep mandarins in smaller tanks you just have to add new pods to the system but your tanks looks nice,You need to get some xenia in there(this might help with your cyno problem since they pull phospjates out) The light is your call i do dust to dawn I would hate for the house to burn down over a light being left on to long
  6. Do you have any nudibraches,or hermit crabs,Today I noticed my chocchip starfish was missing his chips,then I caught the hermit crab tearing into him a bit ago.But I read that some nudibranch eat starfish
  7. found it check into this stuff one guy down the street used it he over feeds on his 29 reef worked good http://www.marinedepot.com/aquarium_additi...ife.asp?CartId= and i know it sucks but also try water changes up to twice a week until its gone
  8. hey jsrtist they make this stuff its called red lim remover I think i'll find the name it is suppose to be the deal and wont harm your lr or fish hold on i'll get the name
  9. http://www.nano-reef.com/ this well be a good site to check about little tanks,although little tanks are neat they can be real tricky tp maintain more so than even a 29gallon small tank could end up with big problems.most small tanks have some way to circulate water but its the Live rock and corals that help filter the water and a must regular water changes good luck keep us posted you have to get a better light for corals
  10. algea has not been a problem i painted the back black with flames(kinda cool lighta on flames are green lights off they are red) but no i open the blinds during the day and when the sun peeks in it makes everything look nice puts a shadow effect dancing on the sand thats amazing,but no big algea problem i have 1 turbo and 2 black do not know what type of snails they do a great job thank you for all your kind words. jsrtist how is your algea poblem coming along,I got hit with the cyno bug last week in my 75 been a pain starting to clear up
  11. talking about fish not being considered as pets think about all the tanks in the south that might have been affected in Katrina,nobody had said much on that.We have a guy at one of the places i work came up from new orleans.He said once he left that was it .fish had to fend for themselves so when he returned a month later of course lots of fish were dead,here is the kicker the ones that were still alive he left them came back to Va.I was floored
  12. one day i'll grow into a big tank like reefman
  13. hey thanks everyone,the tank is about 6 gallons as for filter i have a small whisper mostly for watermovment liverock rubble in it with a mangrove plant and all the liverock in the tank,weekly water changes it takes care of everything
  14. ok i'll take some of that stuff back they remaove nitrogen not nitrates.i found site that explains it a little better http://www.mangrovemania.com/
  15. I don't know about freshwater sponges but you could try a mangrove plant,you usualy find them in saltwater sumps but they are a freashwater plant,I've read that they take out phosphates,and nitrates i think t is and release oxygen in the water.It is said to use 1 plant per 10 gallons of water hmmmm imust try this myself.I'll go get 3 for my 30gallon goldfish tank convert the plant back to freshwater and see if it helps and let yall know what happens

  18. it's about 1 am here so it's gotta be like 9am there did you get your puffer yet
  19. you could look into a couple cherry shrimps,maybe a peacock gudgeon,male guppies have longer topfin and tail prettier too.Or you could always make it saltwater.good luck
  20. http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a343/nomadfkr/DSC00079.jpg this is my daughters baby tank it is a critter cage,25 watt heater,corner sponge filter i split air from her other 10 gal. You could use bleach to clean your filter then let it sit in hot water for a bit the change water and add some decholinator that will work GOOD LUCK with your little guys
