    ahhh FearlBerry, nice

    Thanks Ty. That was the idea - grow out in the frag tank and then frag into the display tank. Only coral flesh moves to the DT, and gets dipped on the way over. The FT is a near identical setup as far as lights, etc., so hopefully that will make the transition smooth. Right now the DT is still too immature so I'm just cooking things in the FT. The DT is just really good at growing algae right now But, I'm actually gonna have to have a clearance sale sometime in the next couple months, but that's a good problem to have! I should add: I have a really nice chunk of northern lights and also Ty's fakeberry (which is a nice piece if you ask me!)
  3. Announcing the July 2014 ARC Meeting

    They do happen, but this has been a slow year. I'll bet Mike is planning something for the fall though

    Thanks! I was not a big anthias fan, but after having these I really like them. They are soooo friendly. I have bartlett's in my frag tank and I've decided I like the Ignitus a lot more. The bartlett's just chase each other around. The ignitus like to school, which is what I was looking for

    Will do. Right now these are growout for my 180, and not sure which ones will make the cut yet.

  14. BornToHula's 240 Gallon Build

    I just kicked dynos in my frag tank a month or so ago. What worked for me was making sure my phosphates were > 0.03 (checked every day), adding pods, and dosing phyto every night. This coupled with two sessions of siphoning out everything with all pumps turned off, and also went ahead and replaced siphoned out water with fresh. No lights out for me either. Took about 4 weeks to kick and they've been gone since. Not sure this is scientific, but my tank is looking great now ...
