Juca that's beautiful.
I heard that a lot of Portuguese reefers use natural sea water collected from the Atlantic coast.
Do you use natural sea water or do you use a salt mix?

If you have trouble with the English, you can post in Portuguese and I will get it translated.

Juca

Hi olemos

I use salt mix.

Hello to all

Today it was one more day of innovations in this aquarium.

Finally I got to fishhook (yes, it is true, same fishhook) to fish Hepathus 2 times (it already went back to the aquarium) Pygoplites and one of grown YT (that already has to go where).

Pygoplites walked to eat what didn't owe.


Exits:

1 Pygoplites diacanthus
1 Zebrassoma flavescens



The fish were too " smart " I will have to arrange other strategy for other YT.

After these exits, efectuei the introduction of 2 new fish.

Entrances:


Zebrassoma gemmatum

hey Juca, you can post in Portuguese if you want, I just won't be able to read it. Germans and Italians often post in their native language and then usually some kind soul will translate for the English speaking members.

Nice mouth on that Anthia! How often and what do you feed it?

Friend, jnarowe

My English is bad of more to get you "expelicate". but I will write in Portuguese and to do an automatic translation

It is treated of a vacuum cleaner a normal of air, linked an a sifter of liquids.

I know that specific vacuum cleaners exist for liquids, expensive of healthy of but and I already had home one for normal powder.

mmmmm....bummer it had to go, but I am sure you found a good home for it. It really is a beautiful specimen. I have one about 2/3 the size but a LOT of room around it.

Do you have an ID on this coral? I have one growing nicely very close to the light and I want to research it more.
