  1. Iwarna was carrying several models; not sure if they still have them
  2. 7-point screen is good; the holes are about 3mm diameter. But must be roughed up well.
  3. First be careful of the poison... use a facemask and gloves. Then just glue part of the rock and let those zoa's be buried.
  4. They do eat lots and lots of food particles in the water. Maybe some additional feeding will change the color.
  5. Yes this is one of the best thought that I've seen in a while, Triton or not.
  6. Those are such generic names, that you might have a better result by getting the scientific names and comparing those.
  7. This is just food particle feeding. Small particles like the reef has. The more, the better. However there is a reason to think that using reef particles like pods, blended shrimp, etc, might be more accepted by the corals. Main point is to keep the particles in the water 24/7. And especially at night.
  8. Oils, from feeding. Same as the ocean. Means the corals are getting lots of food.
  9. Any reason for the hurry? Maybe they are client service tanks.
  10. Advanced Aquarist Feature Article for December 2013: Coral Feeding: An Overview http://www.advancedaquarist.com/2013/12/aafeature The picture in the article shows that in the 1000 litre test tank: 98% of the food particles go to the skimmer when there are 2 coral colonies 71% of the food particles go to the skimmer when there are 40 coral colonies 92% of the food particles go to the skimmer when there are 2 coral colonies, when skimming is cut in half 55% of the food particles go to the skimmer when there are 40 coral colonies, when skimming is cut in half "T
  11. In statistics, "n" needs to be a sizable number, so that the other variations cancel out. This is why surveys are done on thousands of people, not five. The simple experiments I mention are just hobbyists, with n=1 for each person. But there have been many over the last ten years. I did not keep a list of them, sorry.
  12. My understanding of "studies" is a scientific undertaking, which reduces noise and variables, so that the data of interest become valid. For just "simple" experiments, these are already plentiful across the web and forums.
  13. Studies are not too useful with n too low. At least n=100. Otherwise it's just anecdotal. And I already have thousands of anecdotal reports over the last 10 years.
