Rotifer production has stabilised this month, following the sulphur bacterial bloom experienced in May. Our feeding schedule has been adjusted to 100ml 3 times daily, which has also proved successful and will be continued.
Artemia production is going well, for consumption by the juvenile clownfish, jellyfish polyps and the main display tank. Day-2 Artemia were also added to a 100L algae bucket to provide larger food for the bigger fish.
Small Aquarium Two
Mini frame – removed on 26 May for recoating, and on 17 June it was retransplanted with new Acropora digitifera fragments and rehoused in the aquarium.
Coral specimens – the yellow mushroom coral died and was removed from the tank, however, the large Galaxea fascicularis colony is growing well and has started to encrust on the aquarium wall.
Our Clark’s anemonefish laid 2 batches of eggs this month (on 8 June and 23 June).
This month, we added 4 bubble-tip anemones for the anemone damselfish; we will monitor their growth over the coming months, and move them between the 2 aquaria if necessary.
