Hi,
This is so cool sharing my reef with other people so far away.
My current reef is now set up 6 years. Most of the corals came from my first reef that was set up around six years. That makes some corals around 12 years old. Time goes by so fast. Biggest problem is Mojano aptasia. Have any solutions?

hehe, global village they say.. I dealing with majanos and aiptasias as well.. (unlike the rest of our small community, they prefer flatworms.. :wink: )
As for majanos and aiptasia Joice juice works like charm... That's American product and you should be able to score it locally (LFS or so)

Hi,
I tried joesjuice and thought it work great at FIRST. I dont know but it seems like it makes them multiply. For everyone it kills it seems that they come back with twice as many???? Joe told me it was new ones but I dont thik so, I just think they split.

dedicated tank? hmm sounds tempting but NO! :wink:

Well, I can't tell for sure or advertising JJ  but it worked for me... True is that once you wipe them out they'll come back but I think also its just new ones... Bloody things just keep on coming.. I know the feeling..
I think JJ can do as temporary solution, to clean the rocks and so but after treatment  there should be source of natural predation  (CBB, pepps. shrimps or so..)

there is also Salifert's product called aiptasia exit.. I saw that stuff in action. I don't like it.. Its a green liquid that needs to be delivered in same way as JJ (to target feed them) but when in contact with water it thickens and people say it shouldn't be applied for more than 10 aiptasias in one day.. (that makes me wonder is it 100% reef safe)

Well ok but you dont what you mised and they are very simple to keep( liter or two  of tap water,few spone of ordinary kitchen table salt and voila,fun is begining).

On the serious note,I had aruseta asfur angelfishes and he eat majano anemones but I dont know how much  he is safe with sps corals(my asfur devastated only xenia corals but you never know with angelfish how he will behave in the reef tank).

you need to close chosen address like that [ img]http://image_url[/img]
unfortunately there is no option to upload pic directly to forum .. image needs to be uploaded elsewhere.. Your host (freewebs.com) does not support hot linking so this address can't be copied.. You can upload images to our gallery here at ER and than link them to your message.. :wink:

As for the reef safe fish.. there are not to many candidates.  I think best choices are Copperbanded butterflyfish (chelmon rostratus) and Peppermint Shrimp (Lysmata wurdemanni).. cause they will feed on aiptasias.. There is however concern that an occasional specimen may nip some LPS corals or zoanthids

Thanks guys.
I cant seem to find a healthy copperband.
I never have seen one feeding at our stores here.

Frank.
Oh by the way, your english is fine! :wink:
