Tank Update (New Soft Corals)

Today I got some cool new stuff!  I picked up a new pump for the tank as I think I was having some flow issues, and then I went over to my buddy Jim’s place, who gave me a bunch of cool new corals.  I got a blueberry clove,  green 5 star polyps, a green/blue striped mushroom, […]

Tank Update (Basic Maintenance)

Tonight I did a water change, moved my protein skimmer back into the main tank, and glued my radioactive dragon eye zoa’s to one of my pieces of live rock.  They’re still pretty mad and all closed up, but I’m hoping that by tomorrow they open back up again.  They have also been brown for […]

Tank Update (Zoanthids and Clownfish)

So today the tank got some new additions!  I picked up a couple of ORA Ocellaris Clown Fish ($30/ea) and two zoanthid frags ($20/ea).  The zoanthids (radio active dragon eye and one other that I’m not quite sure about) are still working on opening up, but the clownies seem to be taking to their new home […]

Tank Update (Clean Up Crew)

So two days ago (a couple days after using Dr Tim’s One and Only) I had a ton of brown algie growing in the tank, probably from the all the newly growing stuff in the tank.  I did some water tests, and my water looked good, so I went to the store and picked up […]

Saltwater Tank Begins!

So Thursday I decided I was just going to jump in and setup a saltwater tank.  I can read all I want, but until I actually apply what I’ve read and try some stuff, I’ll never really learn. I was lucky enough to have a buddy (Jim D.) who had two 10 gal tanks that […]

Saltwater Aquarium Stuff

Kids these days..

There have been a few things weighing on my mind recently.  It seems that kids these days are getting lazier and lazier.  Perhaps lazy isn’t the correct word for it;  Perhaps a better word woud be disconnected.  Gone are the days when kids would just go outside and play.  Passed is the time where people […]
