  1. Ditto for Central Indy Aquatics. This place will be taking a lot of my money. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Zoo contact?

    Sorry, was not implying that you had any say in the decision. Oh well, guess I will just keep it. It was a farmed one, but I have no way of proving that now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Zoo contact?

    Not trying to shoot the messenger here, but sometimes rules that sound good on paper have unintended consequences. What about the fish they feed the Dolphins, penguin, etc.. Those were plucked from the wild before they were frozen? Why do their lives matter any less than a hermit crab or a snail? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Zoo contact?

    I've donated to them before - The emperor angel and chrysurus angels they used to have in the big display were from my tank. I don't see either anymore, so I am guessing they managed to kill them. I also found a juvenile Napoleon wrasse (the ones that grow to 6-7ft long) that was misidentified as a slipngjaw wrasse and gave that to them. They lost that too, which is really sad.
  6. I see the zoo is building a new reef exhibit. Anyone know who is doing their aquatics now? I have an 18-20 in Tridacna gigas that I would love to donate to a zoo or aquarium. I have plenty of room for it, so I don't want to be treated like they are doing me a favor. Given that they are CITES protected and not imported at all anymore, I think it's just the opposite. It would make a great zoo exhibit animal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Still have it. I had another, larger than this one believe it or not, about two years ago. Threw it in the freezer after I got it out. Always felt guilty about that. I would love to find a science teacher somewhere who would want this. It's really cool! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Found this giant in my sump, at least 3 ft long. I am almost sure it has snacked on a few fish that disappeared when apparently healthy: https://vimeo.com/154381309 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Karen said her male turned in to a female, so no more from her for the time being Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. They are the real deal. ORA is breeding them. The Uncle Bill's in Fishers has 4 tiny ones at the same price as well as a bunch of tiny cap clowns.
  12. That's a condylactis anemone.
  13. Anyone seen a large sebae anemone (Heteractis crispa) at any of the LFS's lately? Thanks, John

    Needling swim bladder?

    I've done it on anthias with a 30 gauge needle. I went diving with a collector in Hawaii in 2006. He used a needle on tangs and angels, but if memory serves just gently squeezed the butterflies (a few longnose) until the bladder released a few bubbles. Here is a video from reef builders: http://reefbuilders.com/2011/12/01/swim-bladder-lancing-video-shows-simple-procedure-correct-downswimming-fish/
