Should i begin to add corals?

Posted 08/08/2010 at 11:00 PM by Mmckibben

So, It's been a year now since I have set up my aquarium. Normally it would be stocked with at least 20 corals and a few fish. Instead i have only 4 corals and a pair of peppermint shrimp. It's all because of my 5 tank crashes in a row. First i had an aptasia out break, then an RTN out break, all that dead stuff floating around caused an algae bloom, then FINALY i got every thing back to normal but I just had to add a bad thing of calcium!

It's too hot in the studio tonight...and I've been working on some interesting pieces...that I won't unveil until I am sure i like them...but I was inspired by my daughter's love of Jackson Pollock. I am pretty sure that there are at least two people who will want one of these...or all of them. So I'm waiting until I am sure the results are what I intended.

Meanwhile...I turn to another that Sky Sands told me I had...and that is putting words to print.

Wanna be chat

fire away. wanna start a conversation? have at it. I'll moderate...but i welcome any and all with whatever you want to discuss (within reason - and i have a friend that challenges that expression ALL THE TIME).

Let's start with basics...who are you, where you are from, why you got into the hobby...and what your number one dream is.

Is There a Sea Lion in the Bathroom?

Posted 08/02/2010 at 01:15 AM by superkat (Thoughts While Watching Paint Dry) almost 5 (but who's counting) of having some sort of collapse of my immune system which led me to catch what I am referring to as the SFSA flu. (some f**king stupid a**). Besides the general feeling like I've been run over by a truck, there are some other pleasant companions, including sinus stuffiness that requires me to flip sides while trying to sleep every 5 minutes...and a cough that could raise the dead.

A preliminary qualification son loves watching...
