    Cube tank thoughts

    Don't really see how they're more expensive. Cubes can save on lighting though -don't need a long light -For example a 60 Gallon could be lit effectively with a single 175-250w MH. IMO they're far more natural than a wall of rock with little flow behind the stack that you see in the longer...

    coolest tang I've ever seen

    Gotta be nicer in person than the pic, because not to be rude, it looks kinda like a black tang with Ich... Well better than that but not $3000 better...

    Some questions....

    Just to help out a little, the white coccoons you describe could be (impossible to knw without a picture) scypha sponges...

    Naughty Rabbitfish

    Hey Scott, I had something similar happen, but it was a powerhead malfunction. You have to order the piece from the manufacturer. Something about having to cut the glass before it's tempered, and there not being a tempering iron small enough for a piece that small... At any rate for a single...

    thoughts on blue jaw trigger

    It's kind of hit or miss... I would think a sexy shrimp would be a little bit more hit though given the small size and "teasing" attitude LOL! But I heard the same thing. A few dead fish later she got removed. It's like anything in this hobby, what works for one, doesn't always end up being...

    thoughts on blue jaw trigger

    BJ Triggers are pelagic feeders, and your sexy shrimp will be a fine snack I'm afraid. I had one and it ate an entire gaggle of Chromis (Well as I remember one or two survived because I took her back.) They prefer food in the column but I've heard of plenty of people losing more terrestrial...

    work load on a FOWLR vs a reef sps tank

    Yeah I'd vote for an octocoral tank with fish... I can't seem to find the TOTM that was mostly all softies that was AMAZING. DOn't have to be as diligent on the Ca, Mg, NO3 witha softie tank, and lighting and flow requirements are a bit more lax too... Far more forgiving IMO, and you can have...

    I'm so disgusted right now..

    Ive seen a TON of fish survive if left alone in a stable tank. I wouldn't stress it anymore by chasing it. I had Ich in my tank many times and it killed some fish, and the others were fine. Later on I added the same species of fish in one case and it got Ich, they all got ich they were all...

    Fish collecting

    Do it!!! I have seen this doen and that is where I saw the largest northern pike EVER in Conesus Lake. Period. I don't even know if I'd let my kids swim in there with monsters like that... It could have eaten my 2 year old, and I am not kidding!

    Dinoflagellates

    The darkness works for some, but not for others. I've had a couple outbreaks in my time, and one was nearly impossible to cure. I think JAF had the same outbreak and it nearly caused him to tear his tank down. It can take patience and lots of Kalk, but they will eventually die if you're...

    OT who's ready for bow season?

    Ran into a guy in the parking lot of the bowling alley with a bull in his truck. He said it was rough scored at 186 -It was typical but I didn't count points, I'd guess at least a 10-12 but some may have been under 1" that wouldn't count... Never seen anything that big in person... Said he got...

    Yeah, that's probably the biggest I know of...

    Hate to say this but.....

    Yeah watching the Mets made me feel like I had food poisoning too... Poor guys. I mean they ARE a fellow NY team, and not from Boston... Kind of makes me feel bad. Plus my mom was a Mets fan, so watching the total and complete meltdown into dismal failure, injuries, poor management, front...
