    online snails and stuff

    Hey Mark, Don't know what to say. I've ordered from RC twice- my only issue was with peppermint shrimp- shrimp need something to hang on to- mine were doa- got a refund- my recent order ( last week) came on time ( wish there was tracking ) but was advised that it was to be delivered that day by...

    If I could have a do over thread

    There's so much, wrong fish, wrong lights, going cheap on important stuff. I'll start with my first tank- a 13 gal AiO- after spending months waiting and researching about corals/fish I let a guy at the LFS -( someplace in Pinebrook) talk me into a neon dottyback and a Springer damsel as great...

    Question about pictures posted of corals

    No offense to anyone, my 'problem' goes back to my first tank- an aio 13g. everything I read said start out with zoas- so I bought some- the lights I had were either white or blue- so I immediately hated zoas- I've learned a bit and have upgraded lights and added a couple of tanks, I just still...

    Question about pictures posted of corals

    Yes, I like viewing with more blues- and I keep my lights with mostly blues, my 'problem' is viewing pics on sites- doesn't look the same as what I see when looking at my tank. It's just frustrating

    Same tank, but taken with my camera, not my phone.

    Question about pictures posted of corals

    As you can see the first pic is with all blue light- the last is with both blue and whites- I can adjust my lights for either pics or viewing

    Question about pictures posted of corals

    I don't need a filter- I can take great pictures with any amount of blue I want and post it looking like I see it- I'm talking about the pictures I see online- why is every picture I see so saturated with blue- those who post pics either need to turn down the blues or use a filter- just sayin....

    Question about pictures posted of corals

    I'm sure nobody views their tanks with all blue lights- I only do it for a bit in the morning and just before lights out. Is it the camera or one just wanting to show how great a piece looks under all blue. But most pics I see are saturated with blue light. If I'm going to put something in my...

    40B coral recommendations

    I love the depth that a 40b has- my 30g is frustrating- I'm working on filling out the scape with corals- I have a vivaspectra 165w ( not really- the black box equivalent ) I have all the usual suspects- some assorted zoas, kenya tree, shrooms ( ricordia )and I've been placing them mostly on...

    Blue tang $25

    Tempted but I'll pass- Salwaterfish.com has been sending me a lot of emails lately- I'm ( mostly good) for fish right now- but need more coral if anyone wants to give some away ( wink, hint ) lol

    WTT Falco Hawk

    I first thought the Chromis were bullying my Royal Gramma and I thought it was dead- I managed to rescue the Gramma- most of it's tail is gone and it hasn't eaten in a few days- the hawk is in a tank with a full size midas blenny and 2 chromis- open to offers- fish, or frags- healthy appetite

    My imagination, I'm sure

    I just bought these- figured the dual outlet with battery backup would be good https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0856PZLGX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Rainford Goby

    So now I've had the rainford for about a week- it's about an inch and a half. I can see why some say they are difficult- it's peaceful and would probably be harassed to death by some fish- it's mates are 2 chromis, a pink damsel and a striped blenny- some may say I'm nuts but the blenny acts...

    My imagination, I'm sure

    I just added 1/2 cup of Chaeto to my sump today and I can already see the difference- it's been 5 hours and it's a 40galB lol
