Re: Does sound affect our wet friends happiness

Fish feel vibration with their lateral line and a lot of noise is transferred to the tank. They basically hear by feel. There are a few video's out where people have put mic's underwater in their tanks and the amount of noise generated by filters and powerheads is pretty impressive.

Re: New Stuff! And a filter question.

My guess is that the pump from the new skimmer is throwing off heat, mag drives are known for it. Through the canister you were moving water through tubing and through a large canister that allowed it to cool a bit. Now you are moving it through a skimmer and very little tubing. Try to get some surf...

Re: New Stuff! And a filter question.

In case anyone wants to do this again, to make life easier, use a 50/50 vinegar/RODI soak. It takes the salt off, helps dissolve any calcium carbonate from the shells of the snails, and is a great bactericidal mix. Soak, rinse, repeat until clean, air dry. Try to keep rubber seals out of the mix and...

Re: When Wild Puffers Attack - Ouch !

Over the years I've been bitten multiple times but two are memorable. The first was one of my Monotrete suvattii pair. I was cleaning up some junk off a rock ledge I have in the tank, a custom 150 gallon reproduction of the Tonle Sap River area. I knew the bigger one was buried in the sand and track...

Re: I think my Molly is getting itself high on my Puffer?

That sounds more like mating behavior. Mollies will rub together and then dance up the water column together. He may be waiting for her....

Re: anemone anyone?

The small bubble looking pat on his foot was probably a tear from when he was removed from the rock in the sellers tank. I have a anemone and clown fish only tank with multiple nems and one thing I've learned setting it up is to request that they sell whatever it is attached to with it.

Re: Arothron Mappa, stubborn eater

The issue with buying online is finding a reputable dealer. I have three sources for my livestock and do not waver from them, one I actually drive 90 min to go pick stuff up from. There are good places out there but you just have to find them.
