    New additions

    I received some new additions from a local reefer so I thought I'd show them off. I bought the frogspawn for $20, which has 5 heads. He threw in the large frag of Pocillopora. What do you think?

    Hydroid Jellyfish?

    I saw this guy on my glass today and wasn't sure exactly what it was. I was thinking it was a hydroid jellyfish but I'm not sure. Can someone confirm or deny the id?

    Venting about LFS purchase

    I don't buy stuff at full price often because I use to work at a lfs. So when I decide to go and buy something its a pretty big deal (especially b/c I'm a college student with not a whole lot of $). I deciding to go buy a purple firefish for $30 which is a farely reasonable price. I drip...

    No, they're not tropical

    I took a trip to Forks WA this weekend for one of my classes and got some pretty cool pics. We went to 2 beaches but the second was called Cape Alava and it was truly amazing. You had to hike 3 miles to get to the beach and it was by far the most pristine beach I've ever been to. Take a look at...

    Acanthastrea Popularity

    Has anyone not hopped on the bandwagon yet on these corals. They are beautiful but the prices they are pulling now makes me sick to my stomach. As with everyone I like bright colors but for 400 for a 3-4in piece thats a little above my budget. Its just funny noticing the "fads" in the hobby...

    Anyone need ice cubes today?

    I sure did. We got up to 88 here today and needless to say it was a little warm in the apartment. Being a poor and poorly planned college student I live on the 3rd floor of my apartment complex and I don't even have a fan. Its about 90 in my room right now, sweat is actually dripping down my...

    Trying to pair a yellow watchman

    I've had a yellow watchman goby for almost 2 years now. He/she is doing very well and right now is my only fish due to a downsize in tanks. What method should I use in order to try and --- another yellow watchman? To my knowledge there aren't any physical differences but is there a certain...
