grrrr

well i am sick of having things such as frags and food items fall between the cracks of my giant frag rack and have decided to opt for several much smaller ones that i have desighned for this tank and my preferances of propagation.live and learn.and i have much more of the calaurpas so if you change your mind i am usualy around.

I.c.u.

so i had a nudibranch disapear in another of my tanks and a day or two later the tank went right down hill as in all the snails died and alot of corals..i had to take what i thought might make it and redistrubute it..i hope this system can handle the additions..and good thing i had just made all those frag racks to help keep things from fighting.things are a little chaotic now.sorry about the bad camera.its both me and the machines fault..really.

blue and red

all apologies about the long wait on an update...oh thats right not to important.so i traded some of the zoas that i had taken of the rock i had wich ended up being eagle eye zoanthids for some fire and ice zoanthids wich i fraged in half and hope to grow out as well.i like the red and light blue.i have some blue tubbs zoas that i need to frag but they are on an acrylic plug and i am not to sure about cutting that.once i do that i will have more trade.

Yikes!! I've heard about nudibranch's poisoning tanks when they died, sorry. :(
Sweet zoas!! All those designer zoas I had? I'm pretty sure my leathers killed them. Boo!!

oh

yeah ...it was quite a sight when i looked at the amount of damage caused overnight.i wish i took a picture but i was in such a panick.things have settled down in that tank but i am not sure how long until i feel safe with another nudibranch in any of my tanks.as far as your zoas if you have a skimmer and regular carbon changes it usualy stays on top of the toxins released by the soft corals.but sometimes you win some you lose some.do you have any zoas left.have you tried palythoas.they are even tougher.or maybe you had a bad run..if you want to try again i have a few extra green bays.and some electric greens.

I had a phosphoros pad and my skimmer works great. I have some palys that sort of still look alive, but they haven't opened in weeks. Ehhh. I have all leathers and softies now, mostly leathers.
