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

Last night, I had a couple of guys stop by and we shared a few beers and chatted about reefkeeping. At one point, one mentioned how he didn't like the Vortech pump because it was too noisy. I looked at him, and asked him what did he hear? He wasn't sure, so I went over to the power center and turned off both skimmer pumps, both Dart pumps, the Coralvue saltwater circulation pump, and the dehumidifier. Then he said "But that's an Mp60." No, that was an MP60, an MP40, AND an MP10 all running simultaneously,
i have whites at 55% and blue @ 75% royal blue at 78%. so i guess on my previous light setup i had my MH high enough and the fans pointed to a point where water evap was not altered by them. currently with the LEDs im still topping off at the same rate. this is important because i use a kalk reactor to control my level especially PH, as it runs low on my system. currently alk is at 8.9 and cal at 438 with hanna checkers.
colors are still looking great, so far im happy with my choice.....
