They have been in for several months now and all is well to date. For quite a while after introduction the flame angel was not happy with their presence. The blue damsel just skipped out of the way and hid, then came out again. The royal gramma hid more and appeared timid. They all ate well though. Now, after a longer period they seem to have properly settled and live together peacefully though the angel chases the damsel on occasion – it’s the damsel’s fault it seems to tease the angel then relies on it’s speed to shoot off and hide. It doesn’t happen very often though.

Comment on Aquarium LED Lighting – A Major Advance Or Is Metal Halide Still The Light Of Choice? by Anonymoushttp://www.aquaristsonline.com/blog/aquarium-equipment/aquarium-lighting/aquarium-led-lighting-a-major-advance-or-is-metal-halide-still-the-light-of-choice/#comment-32344 Thu, 26 Jun 2014 11:13:50 +0000 http://www.aquaristsonline.com/blog/aquarium-equipment/aquarium-lighting/aquarium-led-lighting-a-major-advance-or-is-metal-halide-still-the-light-of-choice/#comment-32344 We use LED’s all the time now. The cost has come down to such a reasonable level and you really can’t beat the heat savings over MH. Regardless of the power consumption which seems to be in discussion above, if I’m saving a few degrees in the tank so I don’t need a chiller I’m definitely saving electricity!

Comment on The DIY Aquarium Stand – Some Resources To Help You by Josephhttp://www.aquaristsonline.com/blog/aquarium-diy/the-diy-aquarium-stand-some-resources-to-help-you/#comment-31994 Sat, 14 Jun 2014 21:45:33 +0000 http://www.aquaristsonline.com/blog/aquarium-diy/the-diy-aquarium-stand-some-resources-to-help-you/#comment-31994 Making a fish tank stand can be quite the task. I had purchased a 200 gallon fish tank a while ago and didn’t take into consideration just how expensive a nice stand would cost. At the time I was on a budget so I decided to make one. For the frame portion of the stand I used good quality 2×4’s, it sort of looked like a box frame sort of thing when I was finished. To make it look nice I went to home depot and picked out some fairly thin yet smooth panel board and got the guy to cut the panels to the exact measurements of my fish tank stand. Wen I got home I back glues the board and nailed them into place using finishing nails and covered the holes with filler. Next I painted some natural looking wood designs onto the face and sides of the stand and it turned out pretty cool looking. To finish it off I got some matching wood veneer end strips and rolled them onto the exposed panel ends, the ones I got need to be heated up with a iron to stick. When everything was finished it took almost 2 days but the project only cost me 100 bucks and a brand new stand would have cost around 500 bucks at the fish tank store.

Comment on So, Some More Fish Then by John Cunninghamhttp://www.aquaristsonline.com/blog/general/fish/#comment-29195 Wed, 02 Apr 2014 11:11:49 +0000 http://www.aquaristsonline.com/?p=2580#comment-29195 It took some time and I’ve decided on the fish I’ll get. They need to be small, ‘easy’ and reasonably hardy. The first is a blue damsel (Chrysiptera cyanea) and the second a royal gramma (Gramma loreto). The gramma requires high quality seawater, which should always be provided anyway. The damsel could prove a problem if it was in the tank first but it will go in with the gramma and there is a boss fish there already, a flame angel (Centropyge loriculus). I’ve sourced the fish so… won’t be long.

Comment on Avoid Overfeeding by Giannehttp://www.aquaristsonline.com/blog/livestock/fish/avoid-overfeeding/#comment-28768 Wed, 27 Nov 2013 01:27:29 +0000 http://www.aquaristsonline.com/?p=2595#comment-28768 You really give informative post here about feeding marine fish. I agree, it is really enjoyable but there is a danger of it that too much food may kill the fishes.
