I have an appointment on Monday, getting a tooth pulled for an implant.  If I feel up to taking pictures I will snap a couple.  I have a pretty good idea what it needs, besides some serious water testing and a few chemicals.  I don't know what equipment he has under the tank.  But you would think the person taking care of the tank would be checking that stuff.

This is what Forest will be discussing w us on the 7th:
“Successful crinoid-keeping: Lessons from specimens in aquaria, the wild, and fossils. Forest J. Gahn, Brigham Young University—Idaho, Department of Geology Crinoids, known in the aquarium industry as “feather stars”, are animals related to starfish, sea urchins, and sea cucumbers. Although they are fairly common in reef environments, and arguably among the most beautiful marine invertebrates, they are rare in aquaria, in part because they are considered very difficult to keep alive. This is somewhat ironic given that these “living fossils” have survived through every mass extinction since their origin in Earth’s oceans about 480 million years ago. Moreover, they are able to tolerate a wide array of marine environments, from tidal pools to the abyssal plain. Critical to keeping crinoids alive in aquaria is understanding their biology and ecology, which may be achieved by studying them in the wild and in fossil assemblages. Synergistically, keeping them healthy in aquaria provides additional opportunities for understanding their biology and evolutionary ecology. I have kept crinoids with increasing success over the past decade. Whereas the first specimens lived only a few months, more recent additions have lived for nearly three years (and running). Lessons learned from studying crinoids in the wild and in the fossil record have contributed to this increase in successful crinoid-keeping. For example, many fossil crinoids are preserved with attached parasites, and among some species of living crinoids, every individual hosts parasitic organisms (and other epibionts). Not only do these parasites compromise the health of the crinoids, they also attract unwanted attacks by predators. Nearly every crinoid I have examined from marine livestock vendors has contained at least one parasite. These mostly include various polychaete worms and small crustaceans. Successfully locating and removing these parasites from crinoids before introducing them to your aquarium will increase their chances of survival. In addition, some tank inhabitants, including wrasses, damsels, and even sea urchins, may attack or even consume whole crinoids. Although crinoids have remarkable regenerative abilities, successful regeneration and healing is energetically expensive and likely to fail without regular target feeding, which may lead to unacceptable levels of nutrient loading in most marine aquaria. Consequently, nonphotosynthetic aquaria likely provide the most suitable habitat for the successful husbandry of crinoids.”

Ok, I appreciate it. Let me see if I can find some a little closer to the house. If not, I’m sure the wife would be up for a road trip as we have never been up there before.

*Pending Sale* I bought this from rotational moldings a few years ago, but just dont have the space for it now. It has a gate valve on the spout, and sits on a stand so you can fill a 5 gal water jug or bucket. Great condition with no leaks. $75 for tank and stand
