I also have that stuff from reef crystals every time, its like little white dots floating around and then theres a little pile of it at the bottom of the bucket that never dissolves. I also got a box of that new stuff from the swap so we'll see how that goes!
I haven't much about this, but my theory is that its good to have periodic "disturbances" in the refugium- which I induce by vacuuming it out from time to time. I base this off of other environments where as time goes on certain species tend to out compete most others and diversity is reduced...
Thank you for the Frags, they look awesome so far. If you want a tank to keep a yellow tang for your son I have one and a filter and skimmer you can have so just let me know. Good luck with everything!
Thanks Tim! Never been to that store, might have to go check it out. $40 doesnt sound too bad. I actually seen that one on reefkoi and emailed him to see if he'd make a deal since I bought a blue derasa from him that died. Hes pretty firm on it for now. Thats alot of dough but man those are sweet.
Does anyone have this coral? I would really like a frag of it, I dont care what color, it just grows really neat. I am also looking for a squamosa clam, preferably blue.
Let me know! Hopefully I can meet you at the swap :-)
