    It's used, about 2'High and 18" wide.
  2. Live Whiteworms

    I just fed my tank Clams, mysis, LRS and live whiteworms which I have aprox a million. I honestly have no idea how people stay in this hobby without feeding live worms. I have been using worms since they were invented by probably Ralph Nader a long time ago. Whiteworms stay alive in salt...
  3. Why I find Tangs Boring

    Why I find Tangs Boring. Many fish such as copperband butterflies, puffers some wrasses etc. have a definite personality and if you look close you can see it in their actions and eyes. Yes their eyes have expressions, not like Angelina Jolie but it's there. :love: Tangs, being schooling fish...
  4. OMG, I just Found a Fish in my Tank I have not seen in Over A Year

    I am not sure of the time frame but about 2 or 3 years ago I bought a pair of Gecko Gobies...
  5. Fish Feelings

    We hobbyists are thinking much to much about gadgets, chemicals, lighting and water quality and not enough about "fish feelings". Yes, fish have feelings. I doubt they feel remorse, giddy, anguished, rueful, nostalgic, bashful or ashamed but I know they feel something. All you have to do is look...
  6. Copperband with neurological problem

    This (about) 10 year old copperband normally will eat all the clams you give him. But for the last few months he misses the food 9 out of 10 times. In this video he gets one piece but misses all others. He aims short almost every time. I am sure it is neurological and can't be fixed. Fish...
  7. I had my water Biome tested by "AquaMedics"

    https://humble.fish/community/index.php?attachments/microbiome-analysis-report-pdf.554/ Here is what they said about my Micro Biome. ^ Hi Paul, Here are my thoughts on the microbiome of your famous aquarium, the most mature reef tank I've yet had the privilege of testing. Both your water...
  8. Bristleworm trap

    A couple of hours with a 5 minute Bristleworm trap. I have nothing against bristleworms unless they start to get to big and numerous. These guys would come out in the daytime and make fun of me so I threw some clam in this thing made from junk I had laying on my workbench. I would have caught...
  9. Happy Veterans Day

    Happy Veterans Day and welcome home. I just came back from I Hop and got my free breakfast. Later we are going out with other Veterans for a free dinner. Remember, if it were not for Veterans, we would not have any other holidays. Just something to think about. :cool:
  10. Question How I would start a new tank now with all new Water, rock etc.

    I am fairly sure I will never start up a new tank. If my tank ever crashed now, I would probably leave the hobby as I have been in it since the 50s and I think that is long enough. My wife and I would do some more traveling and maybe buy another house in the tropics someplace. Maybe open up a...
  11. I do Push Ups like my Decorator Crab

  12. Looking for powerhead

    I want a new (or old) powerhead and I can't find one. I have 3 of these and they are at least 40 years old. They never needed any maintenance except occasionally sticking my finger in the intake screen to clean out amphipod shells, Godzilla larvae and bristleworms. They work forever and are...
  13. Maintaining Old Reef tank with Diatom Filter

    Doing a little maintenance with a diatom filter. Sucking out some Cyano and general tidying up. Using a reverse UG filter requires that I do this occasionally so nothing clogs. This is the beginning. In a minute or two, you can't see anything in the tank but the copperband loves it and looks...
  14. Crash

    No, Not my tank. Don't be ridiculous. I use an undergravel filter so it can't crash. My white worm culture crashed. :smokin: I think it may be ten years old and the worms are disappearing. They may be to inbred or have a social disease. I am not sure what it is but after the last worm...
  15. White worms for food

    IMO worms are about the best food you can feed along with clams. These foods contain bacteria "That our fish need" to stay healthy along with the fats, minerals and everything else to keep them healthy. I hear all the time that worms are to hard to keep and they have to be kept cool. No, they...
  16. Sponges

    Sponges. As I was washing my car yesterday I was thinking about sponges. I added this light blue sponge to my tank maybe 15 years ago and the thing really took off. I feel that is a good thing because for it to grow like that it has to be filtering a lot of gunk out of my water which is probably...
  17. Please, Lets Honor memorial Day

    A Memorial Day fact everyone should know is that the first observances of what we now refer to as ?Memorial Day? were intended to honor those who died in battle during the Civil War. Claiming more lives than any other conflict in U.S. history, the Civil War required the establishment of the...
  18. Everything I know in case I go senile (From 2014)

    I posted this someplace 5 years ago and figured I have nothing to say today except build things in my Man Cave so I am Re-Posting it again. If it contains anything not PC, irritating, racist, not ethical, unrealistic, argumentative, political, religious or anything else that is considered...
  19. I wish I had a Lateral Line

    I Wish I Were a Fish?with a Lateral Line System! March 30, 2016 by Paul Baldassano Leave a Comment Notice the lateral line on this Anthias in my tank Everything about fish is amazing and fascinating. To me, the most fascinating thing about fish (beside their taste) is their lateral line...
  20. Using Bricks in a Reef

    One big problem with some Quarantined tanks. This is not a debate on weather you should quarantine or not, but rather IMO a big problem in quarantine or hospital tanks. In an effort to minimize chemical and drug absorption we generally shy away from real calcareous rock and prefer to use...
