    It depends. For ones where you see a progression of the amount of white let's say then yes that's typically the way. But a lot of these designers are by mixing various strains or even species. For example, the long fins were a naturally occurring 1 in a million fish that they then mated with another fish for production, maybe a sibling but maybe not. The point being it wasn't a line bred situation that I typically refer to as a "strain". This convo has sparked my interest. I am going to ask some people about it to see what they say. I will let you know.

    I’ve heard of a couple people have issues. @rhwimmers But I used one for a couple of months to beat back aptaisia and had really good results. Only bad part was I burnt my stomach from the reflection off the glass. But that’s my fault.

    More of an fyi....Two years ago this coming March i purchased two ocellaris clowns from Booyahs at our frag swap. Both were of unequal size. Pretty docile for the most part until this last yr as the female decided to nip at my hands when cleaning the glass. For such small fish (which have grown a great deal) they have a nasty bite even through latex gloves. I had wondered when they would become sexually mature and have read it can take 1-2 yrs. Thats pretty accurate as i noticed this evening a small clutch of eggs on the seal of the tank. This is the first clutch of eggs i have seen. They host in a zoa colony which has really taken a beating the past month. I have no interest at present to raise clownfish, but can say it almost took two years for sexual maturity.

    You are reading it right club! INDMAS has booked Marc "Melev" Levenson to speak for us before our 2018 Annual Frag Swap! We are excited for this opportunity for our members to gain some key knowledge about corals before they enter the frag swap! The topic will be "Coral Pests and How to Treat Them" and this is one of our worst fears for our delicate underwater world. Marc will discuss the best methods for pest prevention in our reefs. This is something you literally can't afford to miss as this can save your reef! We would like to give Marc a warm INDMAS and reefing community welcome by showing him a great attendance before the swap for this talk! Pre-registration for this event starts at 10am. There are limited seats in the class room so don't be late! The talk starts sharp at 10:30am and will last roughly an hour and Marc will answer questions afterwards. INDMAS is excited once again to host another guest speaker to assist in our mission to educate the community about responsible reef keeping! Thanks Marc and we can't wait to see you next month!

    LED's 1. more power efficient (lower power bill) 2. More cost efficient (no bulb changes - LED should last 10 yrs, yes debatable) 3. Less heat to deal with (will you need a chiller in the summer with MH?) - if so see item 1. above. 4. Ability to do "dawn to dusk" lighting effect (value of this on coral/fish is debatable) 5. MUCH easier to mount in a canopy (physical space, heat, ballasts) Just my 0.02 and food for thought. Chinese LEDs can be had very cost effective and many are using them (I have a Mars Aqua on my QT and it works great).

    Smart home tech not only for homes but aquariums too! 4 total outlets and 2 usb's with individual on/off and scheduling. This will come in handy for maintenance or feeding as I can easily whip out my phone or tell Alexa to turn off my return pump. Main light is also attached to this and scheduled. I also hooked up my ATO pump to it and set 2 10 minute timers just in case my backup switch fails.

    This is how the Miracle Mud will look in the sump... I filled my 38 gallon sump up with Salt water to empty up my bottles to get more salt water for when set it up on Saturday.... I was not able to this past Saturday like I was planning... I ordered some Algae from Algae Barn before I knew I wasn't able to set it up but I have here in the sump with an old twin tube light strip... Fingers crossed this will be running this coming Saturday!!!! Thank God!!! :-)

    Thanks Jim, your email responded to. I'm working on year-end close at the day-job this week, but will reconcile my notes vs payments and post about any remaining availability by this weekend. Anyone may still feel free to email [email protected] to timestamp your reservation requests for hobby tables. I have responded to all that I have.

    Painting is done both the Display and the sump. A few pics of the sump (3 sides are painted) I wanted to keep the fuge light from over spraying light on everything as much as I can cut down... I am debating on using Velcro on the back of the stand and putting a light blocking curtain back there... Some have said when they use a more solid backing like plywood they get more humidity in the stand area and some of the hardware on the doors rust and possibly get mold... With the light blocking curtain that would give more air flow and less humidity build up down there? Any thoughts or other ideas on how that would work?

    This is a huge breakthrough. It is wild cuz when I do tank maintenance I put on coral videos and underwater educational videos. I was watching an episode of Jeff corwin specifically on corals and they collected gametes and sperm from the endangered Elkhorn coral. It was so amazing to watch knowing what I know now about the hobby...that I watched the episode twice in a row. Thanks for posting this Ken. I sure hope for the better of man and aquatic kind they succeed!
