Didn't have that great of luck with them. Lost one maybe two weeks after getting them, then a month or so later lost 4 within 1 week of each other. No idea the cause.

This thread has gotten huge. Which macro-algae's did you have success with? Which ones failed?

I see Chaeto and Caulerpa Prolifera. Any others do good in the brackish conditions?

My guess is the things swimming around are a variety of copepod, and harmless. Unrelated to the eggs on the glass which look like some sort of snail egg.

Correct.



In the UK they are, not sure about the rest of the EU. The original Blue Jelly was actually a Bee morph, but some resellers started using the name for low grade blue rili and it...

Another way is to darken the tank, but add light to just one corner. The hydra will move to the light, and then you hit them with H2O2.

Things to try:

They've become available at two of the local pet stores, so there's at least one mainstream distributor on the west coast who is bringing them in. There's also the guy who got banned from here. He...

Got them from Batfish Aquatics. I believe they've only come in twice this year from the distributor. Anyone who buys from Segrest Farms should be able to special order them when they come in.

My experience with Kale is you have to boil it for a fairly long time, otherwise it remains too hard for them to pick at.

Help - How to properly tie a knot in fishing line?

I'll second the scud description. Get them out of there quick. They can breed like crazy when there's nothing in the tank that eats them.

Re: Current Freshwater LED+ Impressions

Finnex also makes the DS series which has dual rows of 7000k LEDs, the one I had free for the comparison photos is half 7000k and half 10000k which is why it is so blue.

Guppies are super easy to tell genders apart, you should know if you have girls just by a quick glance.

Yeah, but its never the fish you want to catch that swims into the cup or net. It's like they know which one you're after and are running interference.
