__________________
PLEASE DONT USE GREAT STUFF (THE YELLOW STUFF) IN YOUR TANK........USE POND FOAM (THE BLACK STUFF).. I BEG YOU!

Great stuff====$5 a can
24-48 hour cure
Epoxy to cover it====little as $5 for small projects or up to $100+ for larger projects
and another 24-48 hour cure
I hope you covered it well cuz if you didnt it will start to break down in a few months
sand is another added cost to cover up the yellow.

Pond foams====$9-$15 a can
24-48 hour cure
DONE! You can cover it with sand if you want to (YOU DONT HAVE TO) though but thats added cost again

Current Tank Info: 75 gal under way

From a SNL skit, Chris Farley was a "motivater"! He used to live in a van down by the river!

The age may be playing a role in it!! (they are probably trying to think who Chris Farley is!)

Anyways, nice house NanoGurl! Your going at it the best way! Build it right the first time, I'm sure you already know, working on other peoples headaches is no fun!!

As for a new tank, take your time and have fun!!

Happy New Year!!

Hey NG, fellow lady reefer here. I just got started with the hobby and a 90 gallon.

Question for you and others on this thread... what do you feed your clowns? Mine will not take pellets, only brine shrimp so far. The chromis also just bite and spit it back out.

my build thread:

Try making your on food and feeding that.

Check out this link, great site with a lot of useful info,

Melevs Reef

Just go to the site map and click on it. Scroll down the page untill you see the heading food. It's on the right side of the page. Marc (Melev on this forum) goes into detail about making your own food. Very easy to follow the instrucitons, and your fish will love it

Cheers

Chris

Hey sorry about the Matt Foley, van down by the river thing. I really thought everyone knew what that was. (That youtube thing was too butchered up to enjoy it). Guess I am showing my age.

Sigh, well heading back to the van (for now) and pop in an 8-track of American Pie.

Hey gf,

Mine eat anything and everything. Sometimes clowns can be picky until they settle in. I would just keep offering different stuff.

Mine eat frozen brine, frozen mysis, all flakes and pellets, cyclopeeze, and artic pods. I try and vary their diet as much as I can.

GL with the 90! They are great tanks.

Tuesday Update!

Not much going on with the tank right now... my nitrates are high again so I have more water changes coming up. I tried to take some photos but nothing really great came out (sorry!) so here are the few that were okay.


Ocean darting away from the camera. Sorry for the spots on the glass.



Finally got a good shot of my fat mandarin.



This FS was transfered over from our nano. It was a tiny baby. It now has four heads and is huge.



No idea what this is. We got it attached to a Fraggle Reef order and it was about the size of a pea. It's now about the size of the bottom of a coke can.

That powder blue is gorgeous! I don't think I've seen many as healthy and full as Ocean. Is that the Frogspawn x hammer that you had in some of your earlier pictures? It is very full!

Amazing, don't think I've ever seen a plumper Mandarin.
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.
