OH NO, Mantis Shrimp at large #352
Can't be 100% sure but think i've got a mantis shrimp, seen it about 4 times now but boy is it quick. Started cycling new tank with live rock last week so it can't harm anything but me so far. It's really freaking me out knowing it's there, but where? Any help on getting it out please

Re: Well, I'll be damned! #353
Mine was £24.49 inc p+p on ebay (buy now) but they can go up to about £60 for the same thing with a brand name

Well, I'll be damned! #354
Just had my refractometer delivered this morn, couldn't believe the true reading. My swing arm lied to me and told me it was 1.022 but the real reading was 1.025 at 25C. Needless to say I won't be relying on that piece of ****, (I mean equipment) , again

Re: Strange mushroom antics #355
Did you ever see it closing up like that before you changed your lighting? It could be due to the different wavelengths of light

Re: Yellowtail Blue Damsel suitable for a Nano TL-450? #356
I kept one of these damsels a few years ago and it was beautiful but also very aggressive towards any other fish, big or small. I wouldn't recommend you keep 1 if you intend to keep any other fish in there

Re: Any ideas on salt brands #358
Thanks for the tips, have ordered the Red sea salt so will see how that goes, the last time I kept marines there were only 2 or 3 to choose from and they are still around now. I remember 1 in particular used to take ages to dissolve so I hope this is better stuff

Re: Question about lighting #359
If you get marine specific tubes you won't see any yellow light, its a very white light. If you mix 60/40 white/blue you'll get a good result. The white makes the fish look good and the blue is for corals if you have any, if not the blue on its own looks great in the evening after the white ones are off. Also if you ever intend on keeping corals or inverts T5 lighting would be a good place to start, its a lot more powerfull than the older types
