  1. No, I wasn't able to pick what I wanted. It was more along the lines of, "hey, here's some money. Pick the nicest stuff and bargains and send them to me whenever the money is gone and/or the box is full" kind of thing. I was open to anything, so I'm not sure how many (if any) acros are actually coming. Back when this started I was reluctant to get sps due to weather, but there may be some in there now. We'll see how this works out. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  2. Very nice write-up! Thanks! I don't ship to sell, but I do ship corals to myself when we move (I ship and my husband receives wherever we go). These tips will come in handy, I'm sure! Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  3. I'm getting in some colonies from the west coast shipped out to me. They're still getting in wild collected pieces. I just think a lot doesn't make it out this way without a hefty premium. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  4. I'm actually in Hawaii at Hickam right now. The diving was fun (yay nudibranchs, Montipora peltiformis, moorish idols, and all the normal stuff.) I haven't scouted out keeping a tank here much, but I think I would just live in the water as much as possible rather than the hassle of a tank here. Immersion rather than staring at a box! Good luck! Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  5. Well done! I bet the rest of the tank is much happier too! Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  6. Hey! Thanks for the condolences. That was about 8 years ago, so I'll have to dig through my notes if I can find them. I remember that it had ich and the HLLE when I received it. I started it in hyposalinity, and then I think I remember it also getting velvet. That part is a bit fuzzy, but I remember some freshwater dips. At the time I was a fan of copper and formalin, so I might've used those. After treating for everything, I didn't do anything specific for the HLLE. I kept fresh or sheet algae available 24/7, and I fed my homemade food (variation of the BLU coral method from back in the day). I had a healthy tank, and it recovered on its own. I don't remember the history of the tank it came out of... so I can't remember what might've been associated with the HLLE. Sorry that doesn't help much. When I get some time I'll try to dig up more info from my notes. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  7. Do whaaaaat?! Wooo hoo! Thanks for that awesome plug! Clearly I've been swamped a bit too. Hopefully things calm down for you soon... unless it is fun chaos. [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  8. Yup, definitely a spawning stomatella. They're great hitchhikers, and they can reproduce prolifically. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  9. Deep breath... this might not work... but... I just dealt with another case of brown jelly last week, and the coral survived. I lost three polyps on two colonies of ricordea, but they are now recovering after treatment. I'll post up more, but I'm too excited to contain myself. No clue if it was just coincidence or why it works... For brown jelly, I've had success (two instances on three species of coral... no formal diagnosis of cause) using the zoa pox treatment with Furan 2. That's it. Photos and details to come.

  10. Hahaha! Awesome. This is definitely humbling my photography skills though. All I have is a point-and-shoot... and a modified cell phone to act as a microscope. Ehhhh. Maybe for mother's day... That's what all the mothers ask for... a microscope... right? [emoji2957] Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you! I had to hold off posting more photos for a bit - can't show all of my photos beforehand! I grabbed over 15 rescues this weekend to work on, but they're all teeny bits. I need to find some larger pieces to work on. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  12. Pfffttt, of course I know what they are! They've only been on my wish list for over a decade. I can count on one hand how many I've seen for sale in person. *wiping away the drool* So, since you're one of the few people with a rhizo, much less more than one, I think you owe us more tank details and photos! I saw a gorgeous goni hiding in one of the photos, for starters. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  13. Wait, those are rhizo's, right? I just scrolled up and saw another shot that makes me wonder if they're not (or do you just have all the awesome NPS too?) Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  14. Oh geez. You have all my favorites. Acanthophyllias, bowerbanki, and those rhizo's. Absolutely phenomenal collection and growth! Well done! Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
  15. Given the placement, it looks like a lack of light/flow to that area. It doesn't look at all like AEFW bite marks. Sent from my SM-G935P using Tapatalk
