New rock scape into 75g

New rock scape into 75g

Postby mermster » Sun Nov 13, 2016 6:47 pm

Wanted to try something new, so we redid the rockscape in our 75.

Before:

After:

Got some more room for bottom placement corals, and hopefully the BTA stays put in the front.

Alk has been 11 for awhile now.
Previous to this rearrange he'd been in the same spot for 4 months, we went on vacation this last weekend and he was in a different spot when we got back. I tried to keep him in relatively the same spot, hopefully he doesn't use this as an excuse to go roaming again.

I try to keep mine at 10 but 11 should be good if you feed it 2 times a week it will get big fast

I've been feeding him twice a week, I just started feeding the corals twice a week last week as well.

Just remember to keep an eye on your phosphates unless you want to run gfo and biopellets

2 months since the new rock scape, feels like it's been longer than that

I haven't heard anybody else having problems, are they just showing broken links?

Got some he filters today that really help my iPhone get the color closer to what I see.

No filter

Half orange filter

Full orange filter

Goodbye over saturated blues!

They certainly are! They're going to bake it hard for me to hide my algae in pictures.

Tonight's project is catching 2 cleaner shrimp.

They recently decided to start stealing food out of my BTA hours after it's initially eaten. I'm talking full on digging partially digested shrimp out of his mouth, his mouth hasn't been looking good since they started. Hopefully I can get some store credit for them somewhere, or trade them for a blue coral banded shrimp.

I wish that mine didn't, I really like having them but not if they're going to be wrecking my anemone

Need to feed this guy more too, I'm no scoly expert but I get the feeling I shouldn't be seeing skeleton while its tentacles are out. Might need to adjust my timers so moonlights go off before 11 so I get a better chance to feed him every night.
