It's not hard like my orange plate. It's very soft.. almost like that flower anemone you told me about a long time ago?

Thanks! Yea, Ocean is a great fish. I am still scared every day I'll look at the tank and he will have died, but so far so good. I'm really hoping he's one of the PBT that live a long time in captivity.

Yea, it's a Frogspawn x Hammer that we had in our nano. We fragged it into two pieces.. one with two heads, and one with one head. They both now have four heads each and are about the size of a small dinner plate together.

Here is a photo back in the nano to show how much it's grown.

Your so lucky it eats pellets.

I would really love one, but I don't want to try one as I don't have enough pods anymore, my filefish has eaten the lot!

Think I'll add a fuge and get rid of the filefish -- it doesn't seem to want to eat prepared foods any more, pods were in serious abundance before I added him.

Did yours just start eating them out of the blue?
I was at my LFS on St. Stevens Day (Boxing day) and I asked if their Mandarins ate prepared foods, they fed them, but they would not take. Don't think the guy knew about their diets, so I got two wild clowns (tiny ones, but very nice) instead.

Your house looks well big NG, will you be starting a "build" thread for it?

Seems that you have planned your house around your pets :-)

Happy New Year.
Conor.
Thanks, happy new year!

Yea, he just one day started eating prepared foods. It was really odd. He was getting very skinny and had that "pinched" look.. so we bought live tiger pods for him to try and keep him alive.. but he didn't really show any interest... then another week went bye and he got really skinny we thought for sure he would die... then out of the blue he started eating certain sinking pellets.. then he went to flakes and now all kinds of things... really crazy!

Haha no, we didn't plan the house around the animals.. but we wanted a house that would allow us certain things to be done... so we're happy about that.

Here are some photos I took today of my black ora clown Eight Ball. She's all about her anemone!










Her bf Orca sleeps in my green brain.

When Fungia make babies, their plate is mostly inflated with little skeletal mass within. If they do well, they will grow more skeleton over time. In theory, at least.

Thank you Nanogurl


Why is it that:

A.) When I walk into LFS, girls like Nanogurl are nowhere to be found.

B.) When I'm in line at taco stands, girls like Nanogurl are nowhere to be found.

C.) Hot girls that reef only exist online.

A.) They hide behind the rocks.

B.) They used to look like Nanogurl (before the tacos).

C.) They can't be swarmed by the "too helpful" LFS employees.

That's reall interesting. I guess if it's a plate I should take it down from the top of the rocks huh? lol.
