    Rutger Hauer Or Uma Thurman?

    Manjano? I thought they had slightly bubble tipped tentacles. The smaller orangy/brown one folds up at night the greeny ones dont. The orangy one also has a stem whereas the green ones dont. I thought they could be tulip anenomes, I agree with you on the brown one. Next question is erradication...

    Rutger Hauer Or Uma Thurman?

    So my question is this. Do I have a benign hitchhiker here or a murderous psychopath? The reason I ask is 1 death and a change in behaviour. This morning my firefish was dead, and with cunning use of powerheads and a small dismantle I wafted him out from behind the rocks. He had been crabbed a...

    Skimmer Help?

    There is a company in the US that makes exact copies of Bubblemagus skimmers and at a fraction of the price, I cant remember the exact name but it is something like alkan. I only have heard good things of reef octopus but they arent that common in the uk. Like your lighting a skimmer is one of...

    How Can I Cover This?

    I need some sort of cover for my tank. It is an aquanano 130 which I have drilled and sumped. It did come with a glass lid which I have put back on, it kind of balances on the feet of my lighting unit. The problem is there is a small gap around the edge and there is a goby in the tank who has...

    Too Much Light?

    When I say no lid this is what I mean. It has the condensation cover on which will prevent any jumping. That being said I have never had a male jump, females on the other hand. I had one who used to wait till feeding time or a water change and would regularly take a leap of faith.

    Too Much Light?

    Its a clearseal pentagon tank. So it would have to be something that clips on the side. I dont have a lid on it as i prefer the clean lines of an all glass tank. I want something that will be good for plant growth and to display my bettas colours nicely.

    Hitch Hiker Id

    Can anyone tell me what this is? I am not very good at IDing things but I thought it may be a sea hare. There are loads of egg cases in my sump on the glass ,skimmer and return pump but not in the refugium. The picture was taken this morning as the lights were coming on in sunrise mode, the...

    Too Much Light?

    Thanks Rob, the lights on a controler for 8 hours. The LED isnt dimmable so I guess I am in the market for something else. Any Ideas of a decent LED set up for such a small tank?

    Too Much Light?

    I have recently upgraded the lighting on my marine tank, so I had a spare TMC led 500 tile kicking about. I have put this on my fresh water planted tank. It is a small 35ltr tank that houses a male Betta. It is planted with saggitarius anubias vallis and ferns. Problem is it is now getting all...

    Whats Eating My Star Polyps?

    these are the critters that appeared in my tank. The slug thing is on the right you can see there eggs all over the return pump. They are even in my skimmer. They get sucked up and into the tank where they seem to graze on the rocks, they are quite happy to drift around in the current. There...

    Whats Eating My Star Polyps?

    I was hoping it would be the crab, hes a greedy little git. This makes him easy to catch some krill in a jam jar and 5 minutes hes in there like swimwear. Back to the sump then to lfs. My hermits are pretty well vegitarian and quite small. I will evict him and see if they come back.

    Whats Eating My Star Polyps?

    I have 2 colonies of star polyps which I have had for a couple of years now. In the last 2 days they have both been decimated by something. I have a couple of suspects in mind. 1st Red stripe angel, she has only been in the tank for 2 months. 2nd Emerald crab. Caught him eating xenias so he was...

    Yet Another Problem With My Betta

    Just go for 24 hours, a calm fish will recover a lot faster than one that is stressed.
