EMERGENCY FORUM : white stuff on my powder blue

It looks kinda fuzzy and on top of the skin.  I've noticed similar small patches on the fins, but they come and go pretty regularly.  This is the first time that the patches looked "organized".  It hasnt seemed to get longer or grow, but seems to get fuzzier.

Is it just that one spot? Does it appear to be under the skin or on top of the skin? Is it getting longer or just puffing up more?

Something has upset it the last few weeks and caused it to pale out a bit on top.  It's still fat and growing all around the edges.  I'm moving it to a slightly lower light area of the tank to see if that's the problem.

This whole thing has been tons of fun.  I can't wait until the next one.

It's very interesting to see the numbers on these sensors. I was sure I was putting about 150gph through my carbon reactor. Let's just say it's not even 50.

General Discussion : Black Worms?

Posted: February 19 2017 at 6:38pm

I agree with Adam, plus, you know from the other thread that I find the best way is to feed the bugs and worms to increase their populations in my systems. Phytoplankton is one of the best things that can be fed and it does not need to be live. My tanks love frozen Tahitian Blend Algae paste from Brine Shrimp Direct. Except for Tridacna Clams, the large animals don't eat it, they just benefit up the food chain.
Back in the day when I grew phytoplankton, none of the present day foods were available. It's only been in the last 10 years or so that we have seen an explosion of nutritious frozen foods and also some micron size prepared foods like BSD Golden Pearls for feeding the animals at the bottom of the food chain.
Aloha,Mark

I raised them for years on campus. They were super easy, assuming you have a CO2 tank. But really, why? Frozen blood worms are just so easy to buy.

Out of Bounds (Off-Topic) : Acrylic cutting and routing

Mostly rectangles and squares but the issue I have is that I'm needing to try and add a routed edge to allow them to mount flush.

So I've had the next beta stuff for a while and am just getting around to installing them on my tank. This one is a new module called the Flow Monitoring Module (FMM). This module has some interesting options. It has 4 sensor ports, an auxiliary port, and a power port.  The sensor ports support either a flow sensor, upcoming optical level sensor or a leak detection sensor. The aux port is designed for some 24v apex accessories like a solenoid valve or ato pump. I opted for 4 flow sensors. A 1", 2 - 1/2" and a 1/4". These will monitor my return flow to the tank, my carbon and GFO reactors, and my sulfur denitrator. My only issue has been that Neptune made the decision to go with BSP threaded parts instead of NPT which is what we can buy around here. This has made it a challenge to get it plumbed in but I finally got it done. Here is three of the sensors installed on my manifold.
