Sick Pajama Cardinal


I started with 5 Pajama Cardinals (Sphaeramia nematoptera) 5-6 years ago and over the years they slowly died off. The last one looked beautiful for at least a year and then slowly started to deteriorate. Today I noticed she was doing this death spiral. I assume the end is near. 😦

SURF2 Algae Scrubber Update – Week 36


36 weeks into running the SURF2 and I’m losing faith. For 9 weeks the GFO in the system has been removed. There are hints of success as algae starts to grow in the box but then it regresses. HELP! If anyone has had a great experience with the SURF2 please let me in on your secrets to success!

A couple update pictures:

Squamosa Clam and True Percula Clownfish

The big squami leaves just enough room for the clown to sleep.

The Rabbitfish waking up in the morning looks pretty cool!

Longspine Cardinalfish (Zoramia leptacantha)

A couple new Longspine Cardinalfish (Zoramia leptacantha) for the tank. They are a little scared now but seem to be getting more comfortable with their tank mates.

Aquarium Update 10-28-14 – 11 Months


11 month update. Fish and corals are fairly happy. The refugium is full of pods. I still need to get the green hair algae under control. Phosphate levels ~ 0, Nitrates ~7 ppm.

Aquarium Update 10-28-14 – 11 Months


Wow has life been busy here lately. A few big deadlines at work due by the end of the year… hopefully after that I can get back into water world. I’m still changing water and doing routine maintenance but the hair algae still persists. Water tests this evening showed phosphates registering at ~0 and nitrates at ~7 ppm. The tank has been up and running for 11 months now and I’m hoping to hit the “less green” phase. πŸ™‚

Here’s an update video of what the refuge and tank looks like:
