    Gymnothorax ployuranodon - Freshwater morays

    My two freshwater morays :-) Definitely not something you will normally come across in your LFS. The big one is 2.5 ft while the smaller is about 1.5ft. Tend to only eat macrobrachiums (they get green prawns when I haven't had time to hit a creek during the weekend) so pretty good with fishy tankmates, this pair are living with a group of red tail jungle perch and a few gobies in a 6x2 until I move them to the main tank when the pbass and giant gouramis go into the pond for summer.

    Live Rock Critter Identification

    Live Rock and the various creatures on it was the single biggest pull for me to try out a reef aquarium after owning several freshwater setups. The amazing diversity of life in a marine tank and the factor of "not knowing" what it is that is living in there is something that can't be replicated by your standard tropical freshwaters. Whether to mark pests for removal or out of scientific interest, this guide to identifying some of the more common hitchhikers on yo
