    I’m not very active right now (this last year has been bad for my family) but if I could suggest going the Facebook group route that might be a way to get people active

    My 29 gallon tank

    To start off this is less a build more of a rebuild I've had the tank set up for a few months and was woefully ignorant in regards to saltwater though I have learned a lot since first starting The original plan was to go completely FO and have just a couple fish with my faux coral insert I did that I cycled it and everything added a pair of damsels (because I though they were beautiful and now I can't wait for their deaths lol) well I was riddled with problems and began to do more research I made the move to get some live rock and I'm still very under what I need about a month after I got my live rock (late september) I was given a dwarf green spotted puffer as a gift and a cheap Zoa colony they are doing fine but now that I have money I'm planning on remedying my mistakes from earlier Tuesday I am going to the store and I will be getting some dry base rock and completely getting rid of the faux coral t he plan is also to get a pair of clownfish and a few cheap (learning curve) corals my tank is actually really stable and my parameters are perfect so I think I should be alright if I could I would wait but given that I'm a mostly broke college student if I don't get this stuff now I don't know when I will be able to I am by no means a saltwater expert and I did go in blind but I'm trying to fix that if anyone has some suggestions feel free (besides get rid of the damsels I've tried everything)

    My 29 gallon tank

    Been a long while but my tank is still chugging along. My softies and mushrooms are growing great. I’m fighting a diatom bloom right now but I’m winning that. The aiptasia and I have reached a peace. There’s a few that just won’t go away but they’re not taking over. This has been a pretty rough year both financially and emotionally due to my father getting severely ill so I really haven’t done much more than basic maintenance. In other news my Whites tree frogs are getting a new vivarium built and the dart frog vivarium is thriving and I’m expecting my first batch of eggs any day
  4. Not looking for anything in particular just want to start filling the tank.

    That would be awesome. I’ve really been thinking about stepping back and focusing on softies and stuff. You have any zoas that are basically bulletproof ?

    My 29 gallon tank

    I was doing great then I crashed about a month ago. Don’t really know what caused it but I got covered in algae and corals started dying lost most of my euphyllia but I have several hammers and a torch I’m trying to save still. The algae is mostly battled back. Tapatalk went wonky on my phone so I stopped posting I was in the area today so I stopped by aquarium depot and picked up a little 3 polyp blastomussa (which has been on my list forever). Its my first test coral In other news my leathers, soft corals, mushrooms have all been doing great including some reappearances from ones I thought had died Most of my fish have been moved to another tank and my puffer passed though that one never settled in well. My clowns were alone for a while and got the run of the place but the new watchman goby And firefish have settled in well. Really wanting to find a shrimp for the watchman in the next couple months. I basically did massive waterchanges (well massive in my tank is 15 gallons) and have my levels normal again and managed to get mostly back on track I still have no clue what caused it though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hammer coral for trade

    A frag thats been in my tank for several months. I bought it before i got the big hammer colony so i dont really need it anymore Lf frogspawn or a different hammer or other euphyllia. Id take an acan or another lps too 3 heads with 4 or 5 mouths. Tentacles extend pretty long on it so its about 4 inches around when fully extended.

    Ordering fish online

    Who do you guys recommend. The quality ive seen in modesto lately has been subpar so i was thinking about ordering a few cheaper test fish online (royal gramma and a couple different gobies) before my other tank is cycled(its gonna be getting a nicer goby/shrimp pair). If theyre a sponsor great if not im open to anyone Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Other fish everyone keeps

    Most people in my experience keep Multiple tanks so what does everyone have? I managed to find a pair of fundulopanchax gardneri last week for my bedroom tank

    My 29 gallon tank

    Ive been fighting algae on my sand for a while and finally beat it back i think(oddly just on the sand not the rocks). Did a deep cleaning of all equipment earlier today and cleaned the rocks some Everything has been chugging along. Something upset my anthelia but im not sure what as the other frag is happy. Trying to get rid of my hammer frags and replace them with a bigge coral as it looks nicer imo. Colt coral is alive and happy but not growing much. On the other hand the toadstool is growing great as is the monti cap and the euphyllia Lost of of the green/blue striped mushrooms somewhere in the tank but the red is up to 3 nickle sized ones and the brown is up to 3 dime sized ones Fighting aiptasia but my fish kill any shrimp or other fish so ive been really fighting that battle. Aiptasiax has had limited results on the few ive tried it on so i think i might replace the rocks its worst on Well thats whats been going on for the past few months

    Hammer coral frag

    Ive got a 2(going on three) head hammer coral frag up for trade its purple and green tips. Id like a head of frogspawn or maybe some colorful common mushrooms. This one is just redundant because of the huge chunk I got on saturday.
