Propagation techniques and results
I purchased a nice Aussie platygyra which i suspect may actually be a Goniastrea I picked up about a year and a half ago. At about 6 months On the very top however the skeleton is taking on a bit of a brown or charred color.
It sort of resembles slime that didn't wash away, turned brown and stayed there but it won't blow off, I recently noticed it spread

So I'm writing this at 2:28 EST in an effort to:
Try my best to document the spawning of my leather coral. I've seen hard coral spawn, gorgonians, but have yet to see a leather tree coral spawn. I will update this on Sunday evening with pictures, but for the moment, this is so I don't leave out details I would otherwise forget.
Spawn noticed at approx. 2:09 am EST. All flow turned off immediately to determine source.
Small white dots. Gametes? Eggs? < or

With breeding marine fish really starting to take off in recent years, it's really about time you joined the fun. For most people, the obvious starting point is clownfish. It's easy to obtain good broodstock but spawning can take years of waiting, the babies need to start on live food, and the live food needs fed and raised just as much as the clownfish larvae.
Enter: Banggaii cardinalfish.
Easy to pair, easier to raise than clownfish, and with wild populations in possible

April 20, 2013 - Richardson Texas: Our club had the first frag swap of the year inside the community room of the St Barnabas Presbyterian Church on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. About 100 people or more converged on the swap to buy, sell, and trade corals.
As previously stated, our frag swaps have come a long way from what I attended a decade ago. Gone are the tables full of small bags of water, replaced by aquariums lit with LED fixtures to showcase the abundant selections available

Since I've been MIA...
April FTS. Ignore the patch in the center that didn't get cleaned. The urchin was there.
Did my annual sort through of my basement this past weekend. Got lots done, turfed some old stuff and found some long lost space. Tentative panels in place now for the skirting. The left side and the roof is left to do.
