    The Marine Addiction Spreads...

    Yup, live rock that's been curing for about 2 years in what was my propagation tank. Other than that I'm using a Reef Octopus Protein Skimmer and doing 20% weekly water changes. I went bare bottom on this tank and that really seems to help keep detritus down.

    The Marine Addiction Spreads...

    Finally got around to taking some pics of my "new" 29g Saltwater fish tank thanks to a snow day off work. It currently houses a Yellow Tail Blue Damselfish, a Flame Angelfish, and a Royal Gramma. The Gramma hasn't figured out my connection to the food yet, so he spends most of his time hiding...

    Anyone recognize this thick leaved Maxillaria??

    I got this as a mis-labelled Maxillaria a few years back and wonder if anyone knows what species it is. Maxillaria crassifolia is the closest one I've found, but have never seen that species in person to compare them. It is almost constantly in bloom and the flowers last about two weeks with no...

    Selenipedium aequinoctiale

    I can't remember his trick to them either, but I think you are thinking of Fluorite.

    Wanted: Paph. Gemstone Randschild

    I have two clones from the late Tom Cox who got both of them awarded that originally came from Rands. I've had a waiting list going for a long time, but the plants just don't prosper like they did when Tom had them and I'm lucky to get a growth a year. Neither have bloomed anytime recently...

    The person below me game......

    False...I live on a bachelors diet and didn't get too many desserts for the holidays. TPBM is feeling pretty optimistic about 2009 after an unsettling end of 2008

    Phrag. klotzscheanum

    A nice little species you don't see too often. I waited a few days to see if the flower would open more, but this seems to be as good as it's gonna get on this first bloom. It's a very grey day outside, so hard to get good pics...

    Eggs...!!!!!

    Funny story actually.... A buddy of mine kept finding those rock hard cones in his angelfish tank and couldn't figure out what they were. I assured him they weren't angelfish eggs and he swore there was nothing else in the tank and this freaked his girlfriend out a bit. Sure enough when I...
