  1. I mean, don't many of the SPS we find most challenging to keep occur in the intertidal zone anyways? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I've heard that these little pieces can grow into a new polyp, but I've never seen it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. For real though...that echinata is insanely beautiful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Which / what is free? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Oooooh, that's lovely. I wonder if I could find a way to shield the intake on an AIO nano and make a RBTA standalone nano... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I believe the one you're referring to is a St. Thomas mushroom. They're my new fav. They're also an excellent example of the taxonomical challenges we run up against in this hobby. I've seen them referred to as both Discosoma sanctithomae and Rhodactis sanctithomae, and while I believe the consensus in the scientific community is that they're R. sanctithomae, both names are accepted; the Discosoma name seems more commonly used in our hobby; and there has been a long history of names used for it (http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=456765). Here's an article that may be
  7. I wouldn't classify it as a Rhodactis as there appears to be no branching on the "bubbles" (which you can see even in the subtler bubbles on the superman rhodactis pic). Neither does their frequency or distribution appear to match Ricordea Yuma, and the variation in sizes across the striations/ridges further calls that ID into question for me. I have seen Discosoma sp. with bubble/tentacles as pronounced as these, but they may be misclassified. Sascha is totally right; the mushroom corallimorphs haven't been fully classified yet, and with their recent popularity I think collectors are bringing

  9. The aquascaping in the first tank looks awesome! I can't wait to see what you do with the cube! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Yeah, they're really cool! They used to be really uncommon, but they're showing up in our local LFSs recently too. This is where I first read about them, over s decade ago now (gotta love the internet): http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2003/2/inverts
  12. That's awesome! Congrats! Duncans are such great corals. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Saaaaame. It's my favorite. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Actually I'm with mFrame on this one...TEAM MAJANO!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Kessils are awesome! Good choice! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  17. IME, emerald crabs are the single most unpredictable animal you can put in a reef aquarium...never can tell what they're going to do next, and which ones are going to be awesome and which ones are going to be little punks. This is a new level of awesome though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. The balancing is the best part though. When you get a balanced system with an appropriate bioload it practically takes care of itself. And it tells you what it needs because you learn how to understand it because it is consistent. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I love this tank so much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Don't be worried though, Ty! You've got this! Basically all of ARC is going to help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Are you going to keep the arms white? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Welcome! I love picos, and the Fluval Spec series work great. I would recommend staying away from the shrimp/goby pair in a tank as small as the 3 though. While there are fish that can manage such a sol space and don't move around much, in that size aquarium you'd probably have more luck (and happier inhabitants) with some inverts like a trio of sexy shrimp.

  23. The interior of the tank is so beautiful, who minds a skeletal stand? LWJ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. This aquascape is perfect for sps; there's so much room to grow out, and in so many directions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. That's pretty normal for a happy, healthy ricordea in my experience. I have a friend whose rics throw off a baby every month or so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
