    Or feed lightly n have low nutrient export.

    Essentially you have to walk a fine line of having JUST enough left over nutrients for your corals to use.

    That's good to know. Not accepting an anemone stories seem to be about pairing something like Ocellaris with Quadicolors, which aren't natural anyway. So getting a nem that's a natural host does seem like a no brainer. I really like H. magnifica. I'm pretty sure at full size it could basically blanket the entire tank! I think I'd be OK with that as long as I have enough total water volume to maintain the bioload. I've been reading about how these and other anemones get pretty messed up through shipping. I'll have to be ready with a hospital tank to dose antibiotics probably. I wonder if I found one at a LFS that already had one healthy and the transport from there to my tank would be mild enough to just skip the TT altogether. I guess I'll have it ready just in case.

    15 days? That's crazy. I remember back in the day it took me about 2 - 3 months for dead rock cycle. I was only dosing some ammonia I found, and didn't really have any options of adding bacteria. Anyway, I ordered ammonia and dr tim's one/only last week so I guess it'll be good.

    I love going down to Union City to eat at King of Dumplings or Vung Tau III. Maybe next time (probably soon) I'll swing by and say hi with a plastic bag for some chaeto =) Thanks so much for the offer (though I secretly think you're just overrun with the stuff and hope to offload it to someone and get some karma points on the side).

  3. Definitely. The truth is I'm just starting out and the only thing I've got to share is Chaeto at the moment. Once I start growing out my corals, I will definitely share frags with fellow members! :)

    Not to put the cart before the horse, but I'm bored waiting for my stuff to come so:
    1. Any local ocellaris breeders I can purchase a clutch of from that you guys know of? I remember Robin was breeding a lot back in the day. I'm also looking for possibly a clutch of some designery ones (misbars, teardrops, or something).
    2. Any LFS that you would recommend ordering me a H. Magnifica? Maybe it's a tall order, but would the LFS do cipro treatment on it on arrival if needed?

    Aquatic Collection gets mags once a while. As does Neptune.

    You will have to do the video treatment yourself though I think both places sell it.

    Only local breeder I know is dnak but he is currently switching tanks so no clutches right now.

    Thanks! Good to be back!

    Totally going to do it. I was thinking just full on Acro/Monti tank, but this seems a lot more fun and cute.

    Thanks, I really appreciate it!

    OK great, I wasn't sure where I could get antibiotics, but if Neptune or AC has it, that'll be great. I'll need to pickup a little pump and light at some point for the hospital tank. I do have a small ~10 gallon tank, but I last used it to treat ich on some fish (like 7 years ago), I wonder if that treatment had copper or something else that might be bad for the anemone? Maybe I'll just bother one of you guys for spare stuff to use temporarily =)

    I was talking to DNak on ReefCentral about his tank and clowns! I might just stop by his place to check out his system at some point.

    Oh thanks, I'll reach out!
