    ABSOLUTELY!!! :)

    I have already done 90% of my research and planning, but I have just one slight problem... I need to pay for my wedding before I am allowed to spend ANYTHING on my aquarium!! :(

    So, anyone interested in short term or life insurance to help a chap along... ;)

    Hi Jaco..

    Everything made it 100% Jaco, nennie is still feeding very well..
    and i got him a lil nennie crab friend thats taking care of him.
    Unfortunately it doesn't look like it be keeping him for much longer, as he isn't really thriving..
    still looking for sum1 that can really bring him back..
    i just upgraded the skimmer and the lights...
    reeftek skimmer and 2 more 39w t5's..
    also wondering if any1 has some critters for my DSB as in crabs of cucumbers etc..
    cash buyer.. if the price is right..
    ;)

    here are some pics of your old friends.. thinking of fragging the star polyps this weekend. and the xenia has about lil'uns now on the surrounding rock..

    Nice to hear Loki... Speak to Warr, he has the exact same species of anemone and he told me just before I sold, that he'd take it in. His Crispa is ABSOLUTELY stunning!!!

    Also just check that pulse next to the hammer... Hammers have a nasty sting on other coral!!!

    The hammer never did the killer sweeper (sounds like a TCM movie :lol:) thing... I am to be corrected, but as far as I know they only do that when they are hungry. I used to give it cyclop-eeze (don't even know if that really makes a diffs) and then the lights are quite nice, so the photsynthesis are good and then the fact that the clowns host in it also helps feed it as far I understand, so that's propably why it doesn't sweep.

    It's looking good, Loki. It's amazing that the nemmie is STILL white......

    BTW: do you feed the nemmie? If so, what, and how often?

    Thanks Jacquesb I feed it every other day with stint or fresh fish injected with cyclop-eeze and coral grow. Takes it very readily and hasn't thrown up once..
    I used to use a chopstick to shoo the cleaner shrimp away while it's eating..
    But now the nemmie crab does it for me.. :)
    Unfortunately i dont think i have the lights to let it thrive...:(
