  1. I have a piece of history now

    Yesterday I wrote this blog about the Captive-Bred yellow tangs I now have. Read it for all the details, and why it's a big deal.

  2. New fish - and how I react to issues

    I wanted to share something with y'all today, and hope you understand where it is coming from. Recently I picked up a Copperband butterfly fish, put it through acclimation & Safety Stop baths, and then placed it in the Peacemaker in my reef for three days to get used to its future friends. I fed this fish often, making sure it was eating, key to this particular fish's survival.

  5. I had a visitor yesterday

    Yesterday, Tammy stopped by to visit. I featured her 800g reef on my youtube channel, and she wanted to visit. If you recall, she's been breeding clownfish for a while, and I've been wanting a tank full of clownfish ever since I saw a 120g grand prize starphire tank at MACNA in 2002. You could win the tank, the liverock, the stand, filtration and about 50 clownfish. It was absolutely stunning. Everyone said you can't keep all the clowns, because invariably they will fight and pick one off at ...
