  1. How to get rid of aiptaisia and valonia

    From time to time, we see this issue but I'm seeing it often on Reef Addicts. You guys need to update your profile with a Profile Picture and an Avatar picture. That will eliminate this plague in the blogs section, at least.

  2. A taste of Basel, Switzerland - Part 3

  5. Usually I don't comment on things like this...

    ... but I saw this on Facebook tonight and couldn't keep quiet. A fish store out of Houston has a 2-gallon pico tank up for sale. It comes with the livestock and gear, for the hefty price tag of $615. The fourth comment is what made me post this.
