    The aquarium of course, homebrewing, diving, etc...

    BTW - I wasn't on the boat the day the snorkeling video was shot, but that's the boat I dive from when we're in Florida.

    I have this, right now, today (8/19, 1:29pm). It has to go this afternoon/evening. I’m in Findlay. Way more than the pic looks like! If I don’t hear anything by 5:00 it’s gone.

    That’s kind of hard to believe, I know a lot of you are way more accomplished than me at growing corals, in fact I’m having some issues with my SPS. Plan A was continuous water changes, not Triton with this new tank. I still think that may be the better option. Anyway, I appreciate the opportunity. Oh, and really, 10” or 12” under my G2 Radion Pros these things went crazy!

    Peppermint shrimp are the best thing i ever tried. Depends how big your tank is and how many you have lurking in the rock. I have a couple that have snuck into my 200, no way to physically check everyplace in there and I've never had great success with manual methods anyway. I'm a little concerned about compatibility with my cleaner shrimp, but there isn't going to be much choice for me.

    Since I can’t take a good still pic... i count 22 polyps when they’re closed up. 16 or 17 seem to be visible when they’re in full bloom. Moving them high up directly under a Radion XR30 G2 Pro did the trick.

    How is your light spill on the ends? I was thinking a 36” unit since it’s pretty good as is.

    I want to do that with my Radions. I’m thinking that will give some extra punch I need. My Maxima seems fine on the sand, but those pink and gold zoos just didn’t do well in the lower quarter.

    We had a spotted hawk for a long time that had a lot of character, good choice too IMO. I’d like to have one or the other again.

    I started blasting mine under one of the Radions, maybe 10” or so and they responded well.

    They like lots of bright light. Try moving them higher. Mine were stretched out like that when I had them low.

    I’m not sure how to share that...?
  11. hllywd

    Without pulling them out, I have about a dozen polyps now.
  12. hllywd

    Again.... worst pics ever. Moved them up to about 16” under my Radions and they popped. Really nice pink and gold and I went from 3 distended ugly looking polyps to about 11 if I count right.

    I’ll have some to get rid of in Findlay the middle of next week.

    Best I can do for a while. These are hanging in our hotel room. Seriously I moved mine high in the tank directly under a Radion and they’re doing better. Pretty sure I’m at three, but they’re open and not all stretched out funky looking.

    They’re coming along. Still can’t take a picture of them to save my rear!
