    Tough to say for sure because I ended up losing the frags due to temp difference in my dip water. After placing back into the tank I didn’t notice anymore bugs though they were slimed up pretty good and not sure if I’d be able to see. Chris

    Early start on cleaning and light upgrades

    I had a crash a couple years back and decided to consolidate what was left into one tank and sold off a bunch of live rock. I wanted to go with slower growing corals that required less pruning! This one is lit with LED's. It is Giovanni's old 300 (for those of you that were around about 8-9 years ago). The solar tubes are still going strong on the other 300. It is now a freshwater plant tank with discus. Although, I did have to put some light screen (roughly 30%) on the tubes to cut the light down.
  6. Not sure. I just checked her website and did not see any sponges. She used to carry this very sponge a couple years ago

    That's interesting, I always thought red bugs / black bugs usually were a acro problem, not montipora. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    So you were able to get them off with bayer? Is that what you dipped the frags in? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    This was a good article on it. Super small like red bugs, but black. Same effects as red bugs. Stressed and reduced polyp extension but no stn or rtn. 30 mins In 5x concentrated reef dip did not kill them off. Bayer advanced did. https://www.advancedaquarist.com/2010/1/corals

    Care to elaborate? Don't think I ever came across parasitic copepods. Got any pics? What does thr damage to the coral look like? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Different tank, this is the (200gal?) in the office, adjacent to the living room where the 300g with solartubes sits.
  14. is that what Morgan lists as her Layercake sponge ?

    David - That's a real bummer, hope you can contain the damage, and rid the pest. Monti eating nudis?

    Jeff...just curious. Are the sun tubes still active or did you cap those off?

    I've upgraded to a short handle and a long handle paint scraper. Each with a 4-inch razor blade.

    Seeing that glass makes me want to buy stock in Gillette razor blades!

    I don’t have much to trade other than a green monti. I am interested in ricordea, blue clove polyps, and anthelia. I don’t have any of these.

    They are brown/blue. They are everywhere in my tank. I have loose ones, ones on rocks, etc

    That's right, Tuesday the 19th I'll be in Sarasota to tour the service dog training center with the Miata club... and I should even be driving my Miata! I'll check out the schedule and send you an email and see if we can work out a visit and I'll bring the filter sample pack. BTW, I now drive the Miata regularly and just take it back to the shop to do data logs and dyno runs and to upload new revised tunes from Moto-East. We just have 3 minor issues that should be pretty easy to fix and then we start adding boost and doing serious dyno runs. The car is 95% of what I would consider proper for a road car. And even with virtually no boost from the turbo, the 2.5 liter motor makes as much power as the old 2.0 liter motor did at 12 pounds of boost.

    For now, no additional coral available. It appears I may have some treatment to do for monti bugs. Didn't even know I had them. For obvious reasons, I'm not interested in offering them up if they are diseased. Funny thing is I've never noticed them and have never seen any signs of distress on the montis. Mods...feel free to close this one. Once I clear up the issue, and I still have any left, I'll try to give them away again.

    I am also looking for some rics.
  26. Well, since the November meeting is at my house, I figured I'd better get started on cleaning the tank. Also, a few years back, I upgraded from T5's to LED's. A couple of the LED's were burned out in one fixture, so I decided to buy replacements. I upgraded to 120 degree reflectors and the new 15000K LED's for the Maxspect. Very happy with the upgrade. Will upgrade the rest of the lights in the coming months.
  27. Purple photsynthetic sponge is going nuts
