mollusk

  1. Reef Discussion
    I spent most of the summer watching my 16g mixed reef go through a slow crash. Unstable ph, alk, and temps wrecked havoc on all of my corals. I couldn't get the number stable till it was too late. Also had a predatory mollusk eating flat work to battle and of course every tank needs a stone...
  2. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    What is this hitchhiker? It came in on live rock about a year ago and is completely harmless. Hasn't moved at all in that year. It does "open" that slit-like mouth to filter feed. It's just under 1" in length and is in the center of this picture. Looks kind of like a mussel. Maybe a...

  4. Reef Fish
    I have 90g thats been up and running about a year now. It was a slow process to change over from a FOWLR to a Reef and am slowly deciding on fish. I currently have a Blue hippo tang, Yellow tang, and a pair of true perc's. All fish are under 2" with the Yellow being the newest addition about a...

    this was my view from seven mile beach grand caymenlast month. I can only hope he atleast sold the conch meat for food. the shells were $5.00 apiece. I was not happy!

    Just a couple minutes ago I glanced over at the tank and saw a puff of cloudy liquid come out of my lr and blow away in the flow. I walked over there and saw a dark ?mollusk? Sticking out of one of the holes in the rock and it seemed to be spawning into the flow. It probably did it 10 times that...
  7. Tridacnid Clams and other Mollusks
    I have come up with a new name for my conchs. I have five and after watching them start to clean up my tank, I realized that their eaters(mouth) was shaped like an elephant trunk. I now refer to them as my waterelephants. So next time your in the store and want a conch or two, say do you have...

    I had a 12 gal nano reef that I very quickly out grew, about 6 months, so I went up to a 75 gal that has been set up now for about 6 months. I was looking about like usual and today I found 2 baby brittle star fish, 5 baby bubbletip anenomies, 3 of them are pink and two are white. I have been...

    This is the best pic I could get. These things are in a bad spot, I've tried a dozen times and the pics just are not coming out. Anyhow, over the course of the last 4 or 5 days I have suddenly discovered lot's of small white flat spots about the size of a blunt pencil lead. They are kind of...

    So i bought a new piece of LR for the tank, which is always exciting. When i bought it i could see some kind of gregorian growing as well as some other coral not sure of ID yet just starting. It also has some cool coraline and a hole right through the middle. So all in all a pretty cool piece...

    This little shell is on the back and underside of a rock - which is hosting a blue tonga mushroom. Very delicate and beautiful, and it is attached quite tightly. I don't want to harm it if it's alive. Any ideas - do you think it is alive?

  14. Tridacnid Clams and other Mollusks
    Anyone have any bright ideas on how to rid myself of these little white demons that harass my deresa clam, astrea, trochus, and turbo snails. The snails hang on the bottom of all my mollusks and are about the size and color of a grain of rice. I did find and egg mass near the mantle of my clam...

    Found "IT" in my tank. "IT" is something you won't see like this too often if ever. Can you guess what "IT" is? I am going to bring "IT" to the next swap to share "IT" in person with everyone. Mooch

  19. Reef Discussion
    How many of you have zoo dominated tanks, or, if you are just crazy about zoos and only have a few in your reef? Why? The zoo craze continues to rise and I was thinking about asking Vito if we could have our own Zooanthid forum. If no one is interested, I won't bother to ask him. So here's...
