    XM bulb issie

    I purchased a new XM mogul 250w 10k bulb back in November. For the past month the bulb would turn on and off even by walking by. I took the bulb out once or twice to make sure it was in properly and it kept happening. I also changed the ballast and the same thing happened. Today I open up the...

    FB's 120 Tank Build

    This tank had been running without a single water change for 2 years. I had two clown fish in it and that was all. I recently had to move and tore it all down. I've started building it back up and I'll add some pics soon.

    My Black Ocellaris pair are spawning!!!

    I wouldn't say they are hard but you have to get used to them. At first I was having to buy them non stop and restart my cultures but as time went on I started to know exactly what was going on in the bucket just by looking at it. Once you get to that point they get a lot easier and will take...

    My Black Ocellaris pair are spawning!!!

    I tried twice when I had no rotifers. Results were dismal (0). You really do need the rots. I was able to get some results using rots to day 3 and then oto starting day 4. Again results were not very good, but some did live. FB

    My Black Ocellaris pair are spawning!!!

    Hey Rob, I see you are still hard at work. I certainly have not had time to catch up on your progress. How is everything going for you. I have not had time to even take care of my display tank recently and have not had eggs laid in ages. I keep wanting to get back into the breeding but my...

    MH - High Pitch sound

    One of my newer MH is making a high pitch noise. It is constant and can be very annoying while trying to watch TV. Setup is an ICECAP 250W MH with XM10K bulb. Ballast is about 1 year old and the bulb is maybe 2-3 months old. Bulb is on 8 hours a day and the noise seems to be louder at night...

    feeding baby clowns day 1-3?

    It is possible with rotifeat but maybe .5-1% success rates. You can get 60-100% success rates with live rotifers. If you are going to do it, do it right! FB

    My Breeding attempt - Perculas:

    I believe I read something once that a certain food (possibly shrimp) can cause the casing to be too strong for the larvae to break out of! It is possible and this is why they take 10 days. Do you have an account at MOFIB. You could try asking there. There are a lot of people with a lot of...

    I "was" feeding them a home made food. It contained 2 bags of frozen "Seafood Medley" (Shrimp, Clams, Squid, and Scallops) 5 Sheets of Nori. 1 Tabelspoon of chopped Garlic. 2 Tablespoons of a New Life Spectrum pellet food. Put it all in the blender and add RO/DI water to get a good...

    My Breeding attempt - Perculas:

    Here is what some of my "Best" batches looked like the night of hatching. Notice the very large yolk sac. They need a large yolk sac as most eyes don't develop until the 24 hour mark. If they do not look like this you should look at what you are feeding the parents. You can even notice in...
