What is your opinion about coral jewerly?

What is your opinion about coral jewerly?

Looks-wise I think it’s alright, maybe something I’d wear. Ethically I think it’s fine?? I don’t know a whole lot about how it’s collected, but from what I understand it’s skeletons from non-reefbuilding corals, so I don’t think it’d really cause much impact

Yo, I just wanna mention how awesome it is that you stood up for yourself when someone got mad you didn’t want anyone anti-lgbtqia+ following your blog. Ily and your blog! Have a great pride month ❤️🌈 (sorry if this is random)

Awww thank you!! I’ve avoided mentioning anything about it for a long time ‘cause I didn’t want to start any drama, but after I made that first pride post quite a few people unfollowed. I don’t want anything to do with them – I put up with enough queerphobia irl, they can take their crap somewhere else.
I hope you have a great pride too! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

If you were to recommend a beginner saltwater …

If you were to recommend a beginner saltwater setup with relatively easy/hardy species to someone who has only ever had freshwater tanks… what would you recommend?

I usually say a thirty gallon cube with a back filter chamber, with clownfish, damsels, or a watchman goby. You can usually have three fish in there, as long as they aren’t active swimmers and they’re all compatible.
If you’re looking at coral, just make sure you have a decent reef light and stable parameters. For a tank that size you’ll want to get an auto top off. Really, the larger tank you have the easier it’ll be.
You’ll want to start with soft corals like zoanthids or mushrooms, maybe green star polyps or xenia if you don’t mind pruning it out.

If you’d like you can look through my “tank suggestions” tag and see what I’ve recommended to other people

OH MY GOODNESS WHAT IS BOIÚNA I LOVE THEM THEY LOOK LIKE A LITTLE SEA DRAGON

Omg?? Thank youuu
Boiúna is a baby/juvenile Albino Senegal Bichir (Polypterus senegalus)
They should eventually get about 15inches as an adult, but the largest size ive seen when looking for info was a possible 28inches in the wild lmao, but they seem to average slightly over 1ft to just under 2ft in the home?

The other day I peeked into my betta's tank to see what she was up to. She appeared from behind a plant and proceeded to FLARE HER BEARD AT ME. Rude.

Such a rude gurl! My girl flared for the first time today when I kissed her tank. Kids these days.

What do you do with all the baby mollies?

What do you do with all the baby mollies?

I’m not sure what I’ll do yet!! I haven’t raised any to the point I can’t house them. I’ll probably see if any local salt people want them, or sell them as saltwater feeder fish. If worse comes to worse I probably have enough space to House all of them as adults.

when i was caring for my sick betta on his last leg and i did a water change and adjusted some stuff in the tank i didn't have a major pH swing and he passed away, i think the safest bet would just be that there was too big of a pH swing from them or they were possibly just not the healthiest?

I did a water change /after/ they died. I think there might be confusion about that. I’m still trying to figure out what’s up – I lost two out of eighteen shrimp, and as of this morning one fry

Hey there!! I've been looking into saltwa…

Hey there!! I've been looking into saltwater tanks recently and I was wondering if a 30 gallon would be an appropriate size to set one up in and how many fish I could potentially put in there? I'd love to have a firefish and maybe an orchid dottyback, and my fiance really wants a clownfish. Would 30 gallons be enough or would that be overstocked??

My mom actually has that exact set up! She has a 29 gallon cube packed full of soft coral, a clownfish, firefish, dotty back, and green chromis. I think that would make a great first setup! I would suggest you look into an auto top off, just so that your salinity is more stable in a tank that size. The biocube 29 gallons are pretty nice, if you’re looking for tank suggestions. Good luck!!
