    I want to get certified but... my ears

    My experience is difficult to equalize also. R>L for whatever reason. Like more experienced RCers have commented, start equalizing early and near continuous on your descent. A buddy last dive outing recommended tilting the more difficult ear up while descending. I've never used decongestants...

    Eel on mix reef ?

    blue ribbon eel

    blue ribbon eel

    Peter, mine started eating frozen squid from the bait shop on week one. I've got a zebra moray as well that ate from day one. Makes up for all the other losses I've experienced.

    blue ribbon eel

    Peter, and other intersted parties, my blue ribbon is doing great. He/she has been in my tank for 2+ years. I wish I'd bought 2 when I got this one. The supplier had great results with the ribbons he had.
