    feeding capanella?

    I have a nice Kenya Tree coral (capanella sp.) (spelling?!?) that has recently lost some "luster" - not as big as it was, and spends more time "crunched". I have recently added a small xenia frag (pulsing like MAAAAD) and I turned the Capanella 180 degrees. I've also started adding alk buffer...

    OT: To windows XP users

    Activation isn't increasing piracy. And for Windows being EXPENSIVE??? That's silly. You use it almost every day. It includes great features like media player and messenger. It comes with internet browsing AND email. You pay over $300/year for your cell phone. You paid $300+ for a TV and...

    why do xenia "pulse"?

    read some research that the obvious (feeding, respiration) is not the reason --- wondering if anyone had any thoughts. My wife thinks it may be for locomotion - ours is speeding slong at about 1 cm/week :D

    OT - HAIRTRIGGER - Patriot Act 2?

    most of the talk is from "fringe" sources - but it is on "Wired" and PBS's Bill Moyer (ahem , but that seems to be missing today...) If you want to email me I'll send you a link, or the doc. EDIT - I found it - most search links seem to not point to the right doc. Here is the heading from PBS...

    OT - HAIRTRIGGER - Patriot Act 2?

    I’m not a big fan of conspiracy theories - but I’m less of a fan of conspiracies. There has been some "chatter" about a leaked draft of the "Patriot Act II". Wondering what our friends at CNN think of the document.
