Radiata eating frozen food

Posted 01/11/2011 at 05:53 AM by sacremon

Continuing along with my weaning training, I bought some PE mysis, thawed some and then somewhat painstakingly found individual mysis that were intact enough and not as mushy as others to be able to be pierced by the fishing line. The radiata sees that they are shrimp-shaped and have eyes, and are on the end of the line, which is good enough for him. Now to see if I can get him onto food that doesn't have eyes, like regular table shrimp. He'll need to be larger anyway, to eat the smallest of...

Radiata, no LFS involved

Posted 01/04/2011 at 09:24 AM by sacremon

Diver's Den had a Pterois radiata for sale, and I snapped it up as soon as it was on the website. It was listed as 2 and 3/4", which is clearly including the entire length of the fish including tail. In any event, I decided to see if I had better luck than my LFS in keeping one alive. In a sense, I could not do worse.

Given that it came from LiveAquaria and it is a lion, I decided to forgo any QT. The radiata (henceforth referred to as 'he' even though there is no way for...

Amyloodinium ocellatum (Marine Velvet)

What is Oodinium?

Velvet or Coral Fish Disease is caused from an infestation of the dinoflagellate Amyloodinium ocellatum. The life cycle of Velvet is very similar to the life cycle of marine ich. This organism is parasitic on fish at one stage in its life cycle; during that stage it is visible to the naked eye. The total life cycle for this parasite approximates 3 weeks; but for total safety after a tank is infected two life cycles should be waited (six weeks). The lifecycle is very...

cryptocaryon irritans (marine ich) Part I

The life cycle of this parasite is interesting and is important to understand when evaluating a treatment. The stage where the parasite is attached to a fish is called a trophont. The trophont will spend three to seven days (depending on temperature) feeding on the fish and that is what you see symptomatically when you see "salt sprinkled on the fish". However ich does not have to be visible in order to be present. After that, the trophont leaves the fish and becomes what is called a...

Done with the power hog!

Posted 12/09/2010 at 03:29 PM by bdare

I'm selling off my chiller, chiller feed pump, 2 MH's and 4 over driven T5's and moving into the realm of LED.

To practice my DIY skills I ordered a small retrofit kit which I'll use to light my sump. Once I'm confortable enough I'll drop the loot and get a big retro for the main display!
