can someone tell me the deal with these guys.. he finds a cool spot to hang out in but every so often he blows up and floats away. whats making him blow up like a balloon every now and then?
condy's like to travel alot, how large is your tank, what kind of lighting do you have, and what kind of fiiltration/circulation do you have?
the filter is one of those aquaclear hang over filters. and we have a blower in there also for circulation.
this morning i woke up.. the anenome sucked in all his tenticles and looked like a ball. i didnt know if it was dead or not so i couldnt help myself but to give it a lil poke! then all the tents started coming out! pretty wild if you ask me!
How do these guys eat? and what?
Your anemones will get nurishment from a combination of photosynthesis, eating meaty preparations, (spray frozen food into their tentacles), and absorbing iodide out of your water, which if you are not adding any form of iodide supplement, I would recommend picking some up. Your lfs should be able to help you out with that. Let me know if you have any other questions : )
yea we have the lil collection of calcium and bottles of stuff to pump in weekly. everyone seems to be pretty happy!
That pinniatus batfish is gorgeous! how long have you had him. tank looks great, keep an eye on the koran angel as he is very prone to nip at corals, (not particularly any of the corals inhabiting your tank right now). I also feel it necessary to point out that the pink coral in the middle is not naturally pink like that and will eventually fade over time. Many Saltwater wholesale suppliers sell them as "pink cladellias" but they are actually a regular colt coral injected with pink dye, it just gives them an excuse to double the price on the coral, but more often than not they damage it during the dying process. I also could not see your eel in the video and i am curious what species you have. Nonetheless, tank looks great, and I beleive this is the second video you have impressed me with, keep em comin : )
the bat fish we just got yesterday! they do their pick ups on tues and thursdays at our lps so siince im there almost everyday and they sckipped the pickup this past tuesday, I made sure i was first to get there yesterday haha ( plus catching them before they are dripped gets you a discount!)
as soon as i walked in i saw him and grabbed him! ive seen them at other stores black n white but they looked more like angel fish rather than batmans. this guy is awesome!
also they had an african wrasse in one of their reef tanks there but could never catch him for me.. lucky me .. they picked one up for me with the delivery but as soon as we put him in the tank he freaked out and blew sand everywhere and dissapeared. the store said he probably burried himself. Ill get pics up of him as soon as he comes out.. hes got some amazing markings.
as per the eel.. hes a snake eel. ive been kind of grossed out by them but this guy was cute. he just stays in his lil cave that he found and only pops his head out to huff and puff then hide again. im trying to catch pics of him.
the pink thing.. my bf got yesterday for $50 since i love pink of course. is that a decent price? he said its supposed to open a lot more but im just waiting to see what it does.
one of the first corals he brought home was a fragged piece of toadstool which is pretty ugly and boring. they charged a fortune for a tiny piece of nothing that tore in half and half died and the other is just sittin on a rock not doin much.
theres a horshoe crab in there also. hate to say it but that lil guy is probably the dumbest thing ever. i grew up in NJ where i used to see the huge ones on the beach shore. so i kinda have a fear of them. this guy is like 2 inches long. comes out at night and just bangs into everything aimlessly. we call him "numnuts"
is it normal to name your fish? lol
I name some of mine, I have an eel named Drago, (i'm a big Rocky fan and #4 was the best). Anyway, start trying to get the bat feeding asap. Pinniatus are the most difficult batfish to acclimate to captivity, but they are also the most beautiful, imo. And $50 is a very good price for the pink cladellia, I would normally expect a price tag closer to $90 for such a coral. Great video once again. keep me posted on the bat and let me know if i can answer any more questions you may have : )
very nice, i'm too computer illiterate to do something like that : )
