  1. Suction Glass Holders?

    Not sure if you were talking about me, but I have 4 that should be available. Jimbo has mine now, but I think he'll be done with them by then.
  2. 120 tall build

    Tank is looking great!
  3. Lettuce Nudibranch & Six-line Wrasse

    I don't know if they would go after a lettuce nudi, but I do know from experience that they will go after shrimp that are much larger than their mouth, larger than their body. I had to banish mine to the sump in my last setup because he was taking out cleaners and two fire shrimp.
  4. Jeeps Gone Reef On 300g Build

    I used tank depot for my 100g, their San Antonio location has that size in stock (usually) so you don't have to pay the shipping. Shipping was about as much as the tank for me to get one to Austin. So I took a drive.
  5. Momma Clownfish problems

    No sump, overflow box, nothing? The tupperware might work, I've never tried that.
  6. Momma Clownfish problems

    If the new guy can rest, and heal maybe it will work out. The bonding process will take time even if she was not being so territorial. So I would not be too concerned on opposite sides of the tank, but I would also be surprised if the tormenting is over, but you never know.
  7. Momma Clownfish problems

    Not normal in pairing, She is guarding her territory. I'd take her out of the tank and put her in a holding tank for a few days. Let the new guy recover, and maybe reset the females territorial feelings. When I added a small clown into an existing bonded pair the female was relentless, and that was in a 185g with plenty of swim & hide space. In a 29g there is not much room. I took my female out, put her in my sump for a week. When I put her back in the display she took the lead role back but no longer tormented the new guy. Now the three are fine together even sharing multiple nems. In normal bonding you will see the smaller (male) clown shake & shimmer at the female, showing his submission to her. Actually, I've seen smaller males also do that to larger males to show submission.
  8. June SPS Corals!

    Put me down for a Rainbow Stylo!
  9. BTAs for sale

    I have two maybe three that are doing very well in my holding system. I am going to wait a few days before I decide if I am going to sell any or all of these. If you want PM me, and I'll contact you back once they are for sale again.
  10. SChrisEv’s 375g reef

    Okay, a momentary subject change has anyone had any experience keeping an Atlantic Blue Tang: What can you tell me about them?
  11. SChrisEv’s 375g reef

    Well, maybe I've been lucky, or some other magic, but for any BTA that I've had, they have been hardier than most anything else, and I've had some form of a BTA for... > 7 years now. And I'm not trying to be critical of your comment, but the holding tank is the exact same source water and is actually younger than the display by at least two weeks, and only a 40g breeder. All that said, I have something going on that they are not liking. I just don't know what. The mouth is open, but I have not seen anything some out of any of their months, but that is not saying a lot, I don't work at home much these days.
  12. SChrisEv’s 375g reef

    Maybe I just do a blanket large water change (375g display means a lot of change to make an impact) and see how that works. I'm not ready to do that just yet, but maybe.
  13. SChrisEv’s 375g reef

    Maybe I'll go from only being able to keep nems and fish, to no nems but fish and everything else. I thnk I might be okay with that, although I do like my nems.
  14. FarmerTy's 215 gallon - No Water Changes SPS Tank

    Ty, MAN!!! I want to be like you when I grow up. Nice, fuzzy sticks and stuff.
  15. SChrisEv’s 375g reef

    Picture lighting is not great because of how low the tank lights are, but here is what one of them look like, most are similar, this is a rainbow: This is not the same one, but this is what is used to look like (the one on the picture is in my holding tank right now):
