  4. Welcome to the forum!
  5. I saw this but feel it’s too much work to simply view it from GHL connect. I can view the same camera by opening a separate app.

  8. A little pork tenderloin for a snacky snack tonight.
  9. What made you start a saltwater aquarium? i always say I did it because I didn’t like having extra money lol.
  10. Don't forget you can take a photo of an invert from your LFS as well. The photo doesn't have to be from your tank but must be a photo you took.
  11. It’s no secret that we absolutely adore marine angelfish so it’s with great pleasure that we discovered that Biota Palau was adding one more species to the captive bred mix. The common blackspot swallowtail angelfish, Genicanthus melanospilos, is a widespread species that has a very different appearance between the immature juveniles and females, and the large showy males. https://reefbuilders.com/2019/07/01/swallowtail-angelfish-captive-bred-by-biota-palau/
  12. Normally, when a wild and crazy version of a free living coral turns up, it’s generally sold for a premium and it disappears into a private collection. But thankfully, the truly incredible orange-splashed Fungiid that we featured five years ago went straight to the LiveAquaria coral farm and has been in intensive culture ever since. Fungiids can grow fast, but this is relative to the species and it really takes a concerted focused effort to grow this group of corals at any appreciable rate. This is precisely what LiveAquaria has done with a really unforgettable color combination of orange, green and hints of purple in a coral we once identified as a tongue coral, generally assigned to Herpolitha. https://reefbuilders.com/2019/07/03/crazy-sandal-coral-resurfaces-after-5-years-of-growout/
  13. The true giant clam, Tridacna gigas, is finally making a return to the aquarium world thanks to recent success by Oceans, Reefs & Aquariums, better known as ORA. Several species of Tridacna clams can get quite large, over 18″ or 45cm long including T. squamosa and T. derasa, but the real giant of the bivalve world, Tridacna gigas can get triple that size, easily attaining lengths of three feet or more. It’s been around 15 years since ORA’s clam farm in the Pacific Ocean has produced any Tridacna gigas clams, although these cultured specimens were ‘in circulation’ in the aquarium hobby for years after. In fact, many if not all of the gigas clams in private and public aquariums originated from this one production facility, and they’ve gotten quite rare and very highly sought after in the interim. As far as appearance goes, gigas clams are the least flattering of the group – sometimes they can be found in nice mustard yellow color with a varying degree of blue spots – but what makes these clams so special is their ginormous size. Since Tridacna gigas naturally gets so large, they also grow very quickly and can rapidly become too large for most home aquariums in just a few years. It’s incredibly exciting to learn that ORA has finally succeeded in rearing a new generation of Tridacna gigas clams as this is a species that is in too easy to target for their shells, meat or both, and they take a long time to mature. This new supply of Giant giant clams will enable this species to become much better known in the hobby and by the public, and we sure hope ORA has a steady supply to satisfy the pent up global demand for these amazing animals. https://reefbuilders.com/2019/07/05/gigas-clam-return-to-the-reef-hobby-thanks-to-ora/
  14. What controller are you using and what are you controlling with it? Do you have any future plans for controlling more?
