VIDEO of some of the stuff I collected.

Post by Michael Milligan on October 9th 2010, 5:47 pm

Well, some of you know that I brought home a sponge munch'n Nudibranch, but here is a film of some of the other things in the tank with it.

Enjoy. I know, water is foggy, glass is dirty, and there is a shot of a little crab that I forgot to clip down before compiling the movie. If you don't like it, then you are welcome to come to Vancouver to collect and film your own stuff. Really, I'll help! lol

All that cool stuff and you ask for more!? me too. I don't have the system for nems, and I can't seem to find any. :'(

Well, unfortunately the lowest tides are a night. So I did most of the collecting by feel! Forgot flashlight.

If I sight a lumpsucker, I collect a lumpsucker. Wink

A captive bred lumpsucker is all this hobby needs! lol

From 1:05-1:12 is a chiton. Then there is a green urchin.

The tank is only at my less than room temp, room temp.

I found mt nutibranch munching on a sponge I brought home at the same time. At least I know WHAT it eats now! lol

I need to bring up the water quality a lot before I can expect things to really thrive. I really have is enough filtration for a swimming pool. Even so, I need to change out the water. 80 gal is a lot of instant ocean! I've been slow at changing the water because the live sand I added from the beach isn't finished settling in. When I collected it, I didn't want to rinse away all the critters so I was unfortunately stuck with a lot of organic matter. Add that to my suspicion that a seastar died in the middle of the of the reef rock...

I also suspected that these creatures would be quite resistant to dissolved organic matter because at low tide the place stinks of rotting ocean waste. My local waters are rich and soupy with life at the right time of year. The kelp forest is possible because the water contains such nutrition. This might also explain why I don't see nems where I collect.

Where is the type of place to look for nems? I don't even know which are here.

As for a chiller... I'm thinking that the shore here is abundant with creatures that thrive in my local room temperature range. I don't need to keep everything, just enough for my tank! Smile

That and I think a protein skimmer in a better project right now. Ultimately, I hope to have a larger system composed of smaller, species tanks (ie octo, predators, prey, plants). I want to make a skimmer oversized, insump counter current skimmer from knowledge gained here:

Vancouver, British Columbia.

I just found a small counter current skimmer at the LFS for 34.oo. I got it for two reasons. Firstly, It will clean my tank for now and secondly, I can reverse engineer it to help me design a large scale one!

It's an in the tank skimmer, but it will do.

I love the "lemon" too. I know it's not the scientific name, but it seems somehow funner.

I'm waiting for youtube to finish processing my last video. It is ALL about that lemon, and it's 'peel'...

The slug seem to shed... It pulls up in front of the powerhead and slides out... odd.

One of them looks like it's going to lay eggs. The one on the underside of the egg. Which suggests it may be near death? On a further note, they look like twinkies more than lemons!

I only have the one "twinkie". The things you see on the underside of the rocks are the shed "skins". I didn't get to and the annotations on youtube, but those skins "Alien Skins" Wink are the point of the movie. What are they and is it normal?

With only one lemon is it hard to tell "normal". As of now he is still motoring around the tank. I put the sponge back in for him. If he finds it. And I have my fuge set up. There is one rock in there from the tank that looks to have small yellow sponged on it. I hope they grow.

Do they die after mating? is that what you mean?
