Well it is probably time for a few pics
Hi and welcome. Also see you got a few soft corals. Tell us more about your tank. Size, dept. and your sump. Your lights.
Whell it your standard sun sun 250 liters . Took of the lighting and changed to metal hallide with ablue moon and a 15000 k coral sun hanging from the sealing.Have a dual sun sun powerhead and a vortex mp 40 for circulation. Normal sump with biobals and filter, running on a Ts1 .
Then there i still the Buyo 550.
And another running in the background but still work in progress.
Very nice, the reason you put up your metal halide, you going to put sps also in.
Hi Smirre I think you replied to my request for a redsea marine 250L. I'm still new at this and don't know how to reply on private messages! I am interested please send me details so I can contact them. This is so awesome of you thank you I really appreciate it.
Don't know if I am allowed to give my no on an open forum, but I would really like to help you.
Hi Dorry sorry for the late reply , I am not that much into sps but still deciding
All three of my tanks
Hey they bud ... Welcome to MASA ... Awesome setups you have there ... Just one concern though ... I noticed that you have multiple shrimps together ... Most are OK living in harmony BUT the coral banded usually ends up tearing the other species to bits ... They dont get their nick for nothing ... Boxing Shrimps .... Just keep a sharp eye on him
Thanx @chikaboo cuaght him locally but I will keep a sharp eye on him
Boxing shrimps in Ermelo ..... Dangerous Just kidfing ... Local as in KZN coast? I'm supposed to be some work in the Chicken Licken there soon .... I must pass by as I see you have stunning fish selection ... Lllloooovvvveee the magnificent foxface
Whahaha . Jip KZN have a place down in Hibberdene where I go for a brake-away.
Quite a few spots down there with some nice specimens. Got the Magnificant from Pet Stop it's a beaut .
Can anyone tell me how big does these guys get?
Aaaahhh blue tailed lobster ... Stunning especially just after they molt ... Mine made it to about 20cms before passing away ... Local as well .... Excellent scavengers .... Keeps the tank nice and tidy
Nice tank you got going there.
Jeepers that is big will transfer him as soon as he gets to big for the small tank,or maybe buy chips
I agree with Chikaboo the boxing shrimp gonna munch the other shrimp, you cant watch him 24 ours. Sooner or later it is going to happend.
Thanx Dorry I will make a plan to move him to my 550 . I dont want to put him in my other tank,I just don't trust the creame angel.
Angels are angels with shrimp ... Wrasses and lionfish and eels on the other hand will slurp shrimps up snacks even though boxers usually can stand their ground pretty well against predators ... I would think he would be A O K with angels
