    I like to keep a polished yet well aged aquaria for flower pot! Constant sump sock exchange heavy phytofeast feeding along with fine slurry of prime choice seafood trimmings with definite spot feeding! As odd as it sounds vibration I've noticed is one of the biggest stress factors! Overflows with no stand pipe can cause the tank to vibrate making feeding extension not possible, even kids pounding on acrylic have caused reaction! Shrimp take advantage of there feeding habits and I prefer to avoid large shrimp! Quality of salinity must be maintained I think it's just a good style:) and always dip when getting new ones over all the years never have I bought a flower pot without a tissue eating worm you know the gray ones that destroy flower pots I hate them but are easily manageable with a trained eye:) cheers and remember keep your flower pots wet to watch them bloom, lol, farm joke!

    has anyone had any issues with rbta not liking a goni in the tank? i got my rbta a few weeks ago and about 2 weeks after, I got a big fat softball sized goni for my tank. I put the goni on the opposite side of my tank and it seems like ever since i got the goni, the rbta hasnt been as happy. It seems like the rbta doesnt expand out as big as it normally would, but then again, that could be due to the fact that it finally started hosting my clownfish after 3 weeks of being in the tank. i got the goni about the same time my black and white clowns started living in the rbta. im just watching both and seeing what, if anything changes in the near future. I even tried to feed my rbta a freeze dried krill and it wasnt interested. i was stunned that it didnt eat the krill. I am making sure to keep a close eye on the rbta because i know how bad a dead anenome can wreak havoc on a tank

    I have several goniopora and a RBTA that spilts a few times a year. Have not noticed any difference. My RBTA is on same side of tank. Has your current perimeters changed? It can be possible your may be ready to spilt.

    This is a super fast grower. It was a tiny frag with a few polyps and now look at it. It is one of the frags from the post on page 3.. The other frag in the pic I have and has grown but not like this one, It is in a spot I cant get a pic of it...[​IMG]

    A couple shots of some of my older ones. I have a lot more too..

    Got these 2 at MACNA. Might need to move that yellow one, didn't realize how much color it lost (edit: not as bad as I thought, just a bad photo), been dealing with more pressing matters. I got the yellow-green one because it is BIG, and I love large gonioporas, just gorgeous.
