Re: sand sifter not well #2
Sorry to hear about your star. How long did you acclimatise it for ? Starfish are prone to osmotic shock whereby they litterally disolve from the inside out, unless you give them several hours getting used to the new conditions, unfortunately this procedure must be carried out all the way along the chain else the even if you do it right the damage may already have been done.

Re: My new Coral #3
Hi,

Think you may need to be a bit more specific about exactly what coral it is. There's so many generic names that people use that can be several different sp. it's best to use the latin name so there can be no confusion where possible.

The only coral I've heard called watermelon is a mushroom.

Have you got any pics ?

Re: Its time for coral! #8
Swanny,

Pop down and we'll sort you out a small bag of various polyps that have become detached over time for whatever reason, either £10 or £20 depending on how many available.

Don't make it this week/weekend though as we've got our open day on Sat and are up to our eyes in it at the moment.

Hope that helps

Re: Have i dont the wrong thing? #9
The other thing with Blue Cheeks is that they are sifting the sand for food, various pods, worms etc etc therefore need a mature tank that has that life in it.

They also tend to swim up and spill the sand all over the rocks and more annoyingly corals which some don't appreciate.

They also tend to fare very poorly in captivity, some say because of diet (or lack of appropriate diet) some say because of internal parasites they tend to have ??

One of those fish best left in the ocean IMO

Re: adding more liverock #10
No Problem


In a nutshell you want good quality, well cured rock but have to remember that if it's out of the water overnight in the cold, like it is now, then there will be some die off even though the rock was previously well cured. In an empty tank that's no problem but in a stocked tank then the spikes in ammonia, nitrite etc could have disastrous results for your live stock.
