If you thought you’d seen it all then you HAVE to see this!!  What will they think of next?! Home aquarium kitsch 300x166 Home Aquarium Kitsch for the KiddiesA completely customizable fish tank, produced by Marukan, is aimed at young children in Japan and due to be on the market soon.

Dolphins Underwater, Dolphins, GoPro, Ikelite, Snorkel

942fZenzi Working 457x305 Dolphins Underwater, Dolphins, GoPro, Ikelite, SnorkelGood morning gang, so sorry again for the late mail but it has been a very busy morning! I did two dives already this morning and am now finally back inside where I can chill out and relax for the rest of the day or at least until 4:30, then it’s mountain bike time!! By request I have another fun swimming with dolphins photo for you all today and YES, just for the record this is as fun as it looks!! This is one of our top trainers Zenzi doing two things at once, holding her breath and trying to keep up to the dolphins and filming them at the same time with the new state of the art Ikelite video tray and strobes made just for your GoPro. This is not as easy as it looks either, this girl can swim!!! What I usually do as I said yesterday is just kneel on the sand with a chosen background and wait for her and the dolphins to come to me, that way I’m not swimming around stirring up dust and scaring any dolphins.

Ranella olearium, Deep Water Mollusk, Sea Shells

3e79New Shell 2 Ranella olearium, Deep Water Mollusk, Sea ShellsGood morning friends, sorry again for the lateness of the hour!! I have a cool new shell for you all today that we found with the “Curasub Submersible” at around 800 feet! We’ve done almost 1000 dives into the Caribbean darkness and in all that time we never found one of these so we thought because we hadn’t ever seen one that it must be rare and very valuable, boy were we ever wrong! Doing a little research this morning I found it for sale on a few different sites for as low as $12???? Yeah not so funny after spending four days carefully cleaning it with a toothbrush! But with that said, it is still beautiful and I thought you might be interested in seeing it MORE: MOREMore:

For starters, This is no home for a tang!!! World’s Smallest Reef Tank image via reef2reef member jjreeftank Are you considering a stocking list for your aquarium? Probably not. If you are like most hobbyists you wish for fish but buy what you have available during that spontaneous moment, often leading to a future of regret and endless nights trying to capture your mistake. If you have not been in that situation than you are one of the few who do actually plan! We can’t all spend hours researching and not everyone has access to a reliable saltwater expert that isn’t just trying to sell something. There are a few things to rule out over all other reasons NOT to get that fish. Here are some issues other people have had with spontaneous purchases: Annoying things your livestock does and stupid mistakes.

Aiptasia Eaters: Eradicating This Pest Anemone

Aiptasia 2 zpsd3c219d7 Aiptasia Eaters: Eradicating This Pest Anemone
Aiptasia is a monster of a problem for some. There are a few ways to eradicate them. Some people buy products designed to inject into their bodies. Some even use electricity to cook the you-know-whats. Even lemon juice, vinegar, and kalkwasser paste are a common, cheap, and effective way to kill them. However, some are hard to find and can easily repopulate the visual areas within a week, causing a never ending struggle and a constant risk for fish and/or corals. Sometimes you need to call for backup. Luckily, the ocean has a predator for nearly everything with the exception of a few evolutionarily advanced creatures More: Aiptasia Eaters: Eradicating This Pest AnemoneMore:
