uh oh

so obviously this thread is for my own personal amusment.....but i suppose it will be something of a log as well..i just got a bubble tip anemone to add to the mix...i couldnt pass it up as it was $8.00 and i couldnt convince a trade of corals this time around..it will be nice for any possible future clown fishes.
Bubble Tip Anemone-Entamacea Quadricolor...
an anemone that is variable both in colors and in tentacle shape.sometimes the tips of the tentacles will lack bulges for a period of time.the colors can vary from red,green,white.
hailing from the Indo-Pacific To the Red Sea this anemone likes its flow and good lighting conditions.mostly photosynthetic but will eat large meaty foods weekly.
this particular specimen has been eating my guppy culls.

Sorry I have not been on a lot lately. I just saw this. Cool idea but not so sure I would want it on the headboard of my bed LOL!! The gsps and xenia's are a good start! The anemone looks a little bleached though???

oh

the anemone is not to bad it has a green tint to it that doesnt showup on the camera..wich as you can tell is a terible camera..maybe one day i will spend some money on a camera instead of the tanks..someday.i have the tank on the headboard due to space and i enjoy looking at corals all the time.running water bothers me not.i must say i did rig up a maxi jet 1200 pump to a syphon hose to help with water transport.

Ok!! I just wouldn't want a tank on my headboard...if we had another earthquake I would be afraid it would crash on my head LOL! Believe me I understand the space thing...its why my reef is a 65g and not a 300g KWIM?? ;)

well the headboard is attached to the wall and i do worry so i have been sleeping opposite facing the headboard...wich is fine as it gives me more viewing time.

macro

caulerpa serrulata from the great barrier reef to fiji south pacific and spread elswhere that i aquired during last frag swap.i was getting some chaedomorpha thrown in and this tagged along maybe on purpose?i didnt ask..anyhow it has been growing and its stolons have been trying to attach..it looks much nicer than the pic.the bright green serated leaves are nice.i believe the common name is razor grass.

Sweet!!!!!

I do like the idea of going to bed watching my tank...I would rather go to sleep watching it than the TV :)

TV

yeah it is awsome watching the tank before bed with the actinics on...i did lose some sleep the first week thinking the filter wasnt running right or leaking..or dont shake the bed..but all those things were just in my head.the headboard isnt even atached to the bed and the filter is proped so that if it was to overflow it would be back into the tank.i am having an algae issue again and i think that may be why my macro algaes are growing so quikly.time for another water check.
