2015-10-27 Pseudocorynactis Caribbeorum Anemone, I think

Posted 10/27/2015 at 06:51 AM by Olliesshop (Ollie's Reef)

This little Anemone, which is about 1" diameter, has grown from the first live rock I bought. I first saw it 4 months ago, when it was less than 1/4" diameter. The pictures I took last evening show a beautiful green iridescence. I wish I could get a better picture, but my Macro Lens doesn't want to cooperate. Plus it likes to stay in the dark underside of the rock.

This are a couple of pics from yesterday.

40 Gallon Rebuild

Posted 10/13/2015 at 06:33 PM by JamesHolt

Decided to rebuild the 40g after all..
Earlier this month I re-arranged my frag/softie tank and put some of the rock in the 40g that I was using to hold my foxface and panther grouper until I finished my 180g. .
In the process of doing that I wound up killing my foxface with a nitrate/nitrite spike.. (forgot to turn the return pump back on)
So I decided to rebuild the 40g since I wouldn't need the 180g as quickly..
So this is what my frag/softie wound up looking like......

Still getting started at 6 months old

Posted 10/13/2015 at 11:44 AM by Olliesshop (Ollie's Reef)

Well, I figured it's time to start my Blog, after transitioning from my 125 gallon Freshwater tank. Here's many videos of the tank and the Cichlids I bred and raised, at my YouTube channel ... I've had Cichlid Freshwater aquariums for over 40 years ... yes that makes me old.

I got interested in Saltwater...
