  1. Everything has been sold. Please close this thread. Thank you.
  2. No not all sold. the foxface and scopas are in the process of being picked up. Everything else is available.
  3. Hello everyone. I have gotten to the point where I’m just not taking care of my tank like it deserves and it’s not right for my fish. I had a crash three years ago, lost just about all of my coral and my favorite fish. I have been limping along ever since. I have the following fish left and would like them to go to a good place. All of the fish eat pellets and they are between 3 and 6 years old. Yellow tang SOLD scopas tang SOLD foxface SOLD Swallowtail angelfish SOLD Pink skunk clownfish pair - They have laid eggs regularly. Asking $50 Orange Occ. Pair - also have laid eggs regularly. The female is starting to turn from orange/white to black/white. Male is turning slowly also. Asking $40 Purple ritteri anemone (Magnificent) - my favorite and I’m not sure how it survived. It is about 12-14” across when open. It currently is hosting the pink skunk pair and they are beautiful together. It eats shrimp and has good reactions when the shrimp touches it. I have had it for 4 years. Asking $150 Matted filefish - eats pellets and aiptasia like a beast. No bs, it eats pellets. Asking $40 Let me know if you are interested in anything I’ll post pictures ASAP. Pickup in metairie.
  4. I got you covered hombre. I'm in metairie. Pm me and we can discuss pickup.
  5. I am fairly certain that everything I put my hand in my tank something frags itself. "Let me move this rock a little so that coral is in more light" is the equivalent to "hold my beer".
  6. There is a blue and a couple of greens at aquatic sealife in metairie if you need a different color. Prices are reasonable also.
  7. I read an article about his and was really amazed. I'm happy the option for a tank bred hippo is in the future. Downside, I'm sure the market will see "designer" blues.
  8. Baking soda. BRS has a calculator to help with calculating what's needed to raise it and such. Be careful as raising it to much can be harmful. In my tank I use 4.5 tablespoons in the 10g top off tank and it keeps it around 7.5 or so for the week.
  9. I use RC also and my alk is always low. I have had it bottoms out around 6-6.5. I add baking soda to my top off container and over the course of a week I can get it back to around 7.5-8. I could never figure out why it was low.
  10. Not a buzzkill at all. After some reading I found out it was a lot to try and raise them. Needless to say they have mostly perished and I had to turn the filter back on to keep the tank from collapsing. I appreciate the info.
  11. I am fairly certain they won't make it very long. I still have about 50-75 left wiggling around but I don't have any idea how to raise them. I tried putting smallish pieces of LRS in the tank and they seemed to wiggle around it more but I'm not sure.
  12. Here is a video I shot of the crab. It pulsed its shell a lot to expel the fry but I only caught it once.
  13. I was looking at my qt tank and noticed my hermit crab was doing this weird dance move. I assumed it was pooping only to find the crab was releasing eggs. I really don't know what to do at this point but I hope I can save some of them from dying. As of now they are in a 10g tank with just a heater and live rock. I turned off the filter to avoid sucking them up. Anyone have suggestions for me? I have a couple of videos of the eggs but I'm not sure how to post them.
  14. They get on occasionally but don't chat often. I would recommend aquatic specil ties and aquatic sealife. Both have pretty good selections of fish and coral. I have used aquatic specialties for many years with no issues.
