Thing one and thing two. Actually, two Red Coco Worms. Dr. Ron Shimek recommends two daily target feedings of phytoplankton, preferably two different types.
Tridacna Derasa. This clam will grow to sizes up to two feet. Responsible aquarists should be prepared to deliver and donate outgrown species to suitable aquariums. David Cripe, curator at the Monterey Bay Aquarium has and will accept healthy donations without hesitation.

Author and coral farmer Anthony Calfo gave an animated and informative frag demonstration to the members of M.A.R.S. and B.A.R. (Bay Area Reefers) last Saturday in Dixon. He fragged a leather, favia, birdsnest, acropora and a rose anemone. The demonstration was professionally video taped and hopefully I can provide my clients with a copy to view in the near future.

A pink and green sea cucumber. This suspension feeder is a hardy aquarium tankmate. A strong water flow is necessary to stimulate a response with feeding tentacles. They commonly reproduce in the aquarium and pose little threat to a toxic spawn.

Frags and frags, ready for the bi-annual Marine Aquarist Roundtable of Sacramento frag swap this Saturday, 10/16/04.
