Montipora Invasion!

For someone that loves acropora as much as I do, I sit here tonight staring at my beautiful 250 gallon mother colony system wondering how it ended up seventy five percent full of montipora colonies. When did this sneaky addiction to montipora over take my desire to keep acropora? I know that I originally started keeping montipora colonies for more practical reasons years ago, because they generally grow faster than acropora and tend to be easier to keep.

The Show tanks of MACNA 2013 (part 2)

Macnab1 1024x733 The Show tanks of MACNA 2013 (part 2)
Earlier I posted a few examples of the plethora of show tanks at MACNA 2013. Below are a few more examples of the range of displays. Some vendors went large, with huge displays, excellently aquascaped and full of fish, others went minimalist with nano systems- and all were stunning. It was quite possible to spend an afternoon just checking out each of the individual displays without visiting any other booths. One of the most eye catching displays was that of Proaquatix.  Their circular tank full of lookdowns was a constant crowd pleaser.  In the following gallery is another shot of the lookdown tank, as well as other MACNA displays.

The Show Tanks of MACNA 2013 (Part 1)

Macna1 The Show Tanks of MACNA 2013 (Part 1)Once again another great MACNA has come and gone, and this one will surely go down as one of the best there was. Everything from the organization, the speakers, the vendors and the venue was truly exceptional, and like every MACNA before it, the vendors bought their A game to the show and proudly displayed their stock in some absolute killer set ups. Considering these tanks, rock, corals and fish had traveled long distances and had been set up less than 24 hrs before the attendees had access to the room- I think they did a great job. The following are a few examples of the stunning set ups and eye candy they contained.… More:
