    I hope this link works, it's to the thread I posted when I bought it. It has been over 10 years since I've had a tank set up so my memory is pretty foggy on behavior, nothing really stands out so I'm...

    I had an eibli/half black hybrid angel at one time. It came in to my lfs as an eibli, the staff at the store didnt realize it was a hybrid.

    I had no issues with aggression from mine. It was in with clowns, a gramma, a wrasse, a pair of lyretail anthias, maybe a dwarf angel. I cant remember details at this point. Everyone got along well and were healthy until the tank overheated and I lost about 90% of the contents.

    Bulk fish purchase I was able to find this thread, remembered it vaguely from a few years back, she had several years of success with a harem tank. I did not read it just now to refresh my memory on how it all turned out.

    change anemone colors?

    I put a LTA into a tank that wasn't ready, it promptly disappeared into my rockwork and died (I thought). 3 months later it crawled back out and it was the smallest, ugliest brown anemone I had ever seen. Another 3 months later and it was a nice brown with green tint, and 2 years later it was...

    I've decided to do a mushroom and zoa tank...

    Amplexidiscus fenestrafer, the giant cup mushroom, will grow huge, and will eat fish. Mine was 16inches in diameter, that is a yellow plastic ruler I put on it for the picture. Second picture is it balled up in feeding mode. I removed it from the tank because of space issues, it left behind...

    How to Host new true percula to new carpet anemone?!

    My female percula was quite happy in her feather duster for months before she discovered the LTA that was 6 inches away. One day she realized the anemone was there and switched loyalties in a half hour.

    Pairing Clownfish

    I would look for the smallest possible replacement. With my perculas the female was close to 3 inches and had been the only clown in the tank for 2 years. I got a male about an inch long and when I added him she initially looked like she was going to attack him, but she realized he was no...

    Anthis fish

    I bought a trio of lyretails for my 75g reef some years ago. After quarantine, I added them to my tank, and a couple weeks later the male developed a bacterial infection that ended up killing him. A few months later one of the females transitioned to male, and the remaining pair lived together...

    Like the look of MHs but...

    My lights on my old 75g tank, 2007-2012, were 2 175w metal halides with 2 36inch t5 actinics for supplemental blue. My preferred bulb on the halides was the Hamilton 10k. In the pictures are worth 1000 words department, here is a full tank shot from January 2010, and close up of a small...
