    Link to request for Pink Zooanthids in Kotaku

    Anyone know of a personal 6-figure aquarium in the Bay Area?

    The Six-Figure Fish Tank Catches On http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/19/garden/19aqua.html I feel such a sense of freedom since I downsized from a 150-gallon reeftank to a 15-gallon freshwater shrimp aquarium.

    "The Comeback Corals" in the latest issue of Stanford Magazine

    http://www.stanfordalumni.org/news/magazine/2010/julaug/features/palumbi.html Hilarious part is how a researcher uses Aiptasia in his research because they're a lot hardier than corals.

    Lionfish the other white meat

    Took down my reeftank a few years ago, and I never kept a lionfish, but I thought this article link would also be interesting: http://food.theatlantic.com/sustainability/save-a-reef-eat-a-lionfish.php

    For an Eco-Friendly Home Aquarium, Keep It Small and Track Your Fish

    Fellow former aquarium keeper forwarded me this article. I did notice a definite drop in my power bills when I took down my 150-gallon tank (recent PG&E was under $80). I'm hoping when I set up another tank one day that the equipment will be a a lot more power efficient. I'm really looking...

    BAR April 11th Meeting featuring Charles Delbeek

    Did anyone get a chance to ask Charles about the state of the corals at the Cal Academy Aquarium? I noticed in my most recent visit a month ago that a lot of the corals in the big main display window have died off. I hope the tank is just undergoing some stabilization right now since the old...

    another fish store up for sale

    I took down my 150-gallon tank last September because I needed a break. I had automated as much as I could, but the regular maintenance chores started to overweigh the enjoyment I received from the tank. Another concern I had was what a natural resource hog my tank had become. Between the...

    Anyone make it to academy of science today?

    Noted some tissue necrosis on some of the corals today, but I'm sure the tank is still settling down. All the clams looked good. The gorgonians were gorgeous in Caribbean reef exhibit. http://picasaweb.google.com/charles.lai/CalAcademyOfSciences# Didn't get a chance to get in to the rainforest...

    OT: Firefox 3.0 release

    Crashing on Windows XP 64-bit with an E8500. Stable on Windows XP 32-bit with an E8400. Really irritated that some tab options are missing - especially an "overwrite" for a new "open in tabs". Here's a "fix": http://www.daleisphere.com/work-around-for-firefox-3s-open-in-tabs-overwrite-bug/...
