Palau Clam Farming (Part 1) Palau's MMDC (Micronesian Mariculture Demonstration Center), founded in the late 1960's by James McVey of NOAA, hold's the distinction of being the world's first successful giant clam hatchery and ocean farm. Masashi Yamaguchi and Steve Jameson achieved successful laboratory-scale spawning and larval culture with several tridacnid clam species in Palau and Guam in the early 1970's. This work was continued in the mid- to-late 1970's by Hamner, Beckvar, Heslinga and Braley with further larval culture and production of small numbers of juvenile clams. In the early 1980's true mass production of tens of thousands of juvenile clams, along with development of land-based and ocean-based nursery technologies, was achieved at the MMDC by Heslinga, Perron, Orak, Watson and Isamu. Their work continued through the mid-1990's with substantial assistance from Hanser, Fitt and Hastie. Milestones achieved included mass production of all seven species of Tridacnids found locally, the closure of the life cycle of Tridacna derasa in the Ocean Nursery (1984) and the closure of the life cycle of Hippopus hippopus entirely in land-based tanks in 1993. Over two million seed clams and over 100 tons of cultured tridacnid clams were produced on site at MMDC by 1994. More than 100 individuals from Palau and the wider Pacific completed the MMDC Clam Hatchery Training Course, and hundreds of local and international shipments of clams were made for reef stocking, local clam gardens and the ...

New Critters in a 30 Gallon Sal***er Tank (from ) I've had a 30 gallon salt water tank in my living room for nearly four years now taking up the space where a flatscreen could go. For most of that time it has existed as a semi-regularly maintained natural, sparsely inhabited, nano reef. But something made me decide a few days ago to order a bunch of stuff from . Everything showed up today, alive and in great condition. The flame angel was alert and happy right out of the box - I was expecting them to look near comatose. This video is from about an hour after everything was added to the tank. Before today I had a tomato clownfish, anemone, cleaner shrimp, a dottyback pseudoschromis, a turbo snail, two astria snails, and two red-legged hermit crabs. Today I added: 1 - small flame angelfish 1 - yellow clown goby 1 - red scooter dragonet (male) 1 - red spotted goby 3 - bumble bee snails 2 - nerite snails 2 - turbo snails 2 - cerith snails 2 - banded trochus snails 1 - small marble sea star 1 - pom pom crab 1 - pink dwarf colored feather duster 1 - small red pincushion urchin 7 - mushroom corals including a blue Ricordea florida

10 Gallon Nano Reef: Day 14 just got home from my LFS (Big Als) with my clean up crew! 2 Trochus Snails 2 Cerith Snails 2 Astrea Snails 2 Nassarius Snails 2 Dwarf Blue Legged Hermit Crabs 1 Red/Scarlet Legged Hermit Crab 2 Emerald Crabs when i was getting the emerald crab i only asked for one. the scarlet hermit was in the same tank as the emerald crabs and when the guy was trying to net out (yes net out, he was afraid to put his hand in the water, well there was a couple horseshoe, arrow and spider crabs in the tank as well) the hermit he didnt notice he scooped up another emerald. i didnt notice untill we got home. this is just what i think happened. so 2 tiny emeralds for the overpriced price of 1. Hands are shaky and voice is sloppy cus i made this video at 10pm so i was kinda tired. i think the red thing is the remnants of a red mushroom that's trying to come back form the dead. kind of has the shape of a shroom.

Rowley Shoals - Broome Western Australia The Rowley Shoals has achieved a reputation for offering some of the best diving in Australia. The reefs are among the most remote and pristine marine areas in the world. Our expedition was provided by The Great Escape Charter Company and is highly recommended. Rowley Shoals is a group of three atoll-like coral reefs south of the Timor Sea, about 260 km west of Broome on the northwestern Australian coast, centered around 17°20′S 119°20′E, on the edge of one of the widest continental shelves in the world. Each atoll covers an area of around 80 to 90 km² within the rim of the reef, including the lagoons, while the land areas are negligible. They belong to Western Australia. They all rise steeply from the surrounding ocean floor. To the northeast lie the Scott and Seringapatam Reefs which are located on the same undersea platform. The group was named after Captain Rowley, who sighted Imperieuse Reef in 1800. It is believed that the Rowley Shoals reefs have been visited by fishermen from Indonesia, from at least the mid-18th century. The fishermen were also collecting or hunting for Trepang (holothurians or sea cucumbers), turtle shell, trochus shell and shark fin. These early visitors apparently knew the Rowley Shoals as Pulau Pulo Dhaoh. In later years, fishermen from Roti Island, south of Timor, also visited the Rowley Shoals, which they knew as Pulau Bawa Angin. The individual reefs were also given names, Mermaid being called Pulau Manjariti, Clerke Reef was Pulau Tengah ...
Rotifer Locomotion Video I collect this specimen from my aquarium. The video was captured from the eyepiece of Nexcope CM701 microscope at 100X with Tucsen 3.0MP CMOS microscope camera. This rotifer sometimes crawls like an inch worm. It uses the adhesive gland on both end of its body and stretch their body to move forward. Sometime it swims like a submarine. It moves the ciliates on trochus in helical motion to propel forward. My other rotifer video at 400x, it shows the movement of ciliates to feed itself. see more microscope fun projects at
Kraylen's Lab - Banded Trochus Snail Spawning! Caught one of my snails making ***y in my water.
10 Gallon Nano Reef: Day 118 The nuisance red slime algae (cyanobacteria) is slowly going away. Some things i did to help this are frequent but not daily water changes because i was told by several local aquarium stores and hobbyists that doing daily water changes can actually help it grow. Other things were adding a hydor flow deflector to make more random flow in the tank which is supposed to help the red slime algae from settling on the rocks i guess? I also got some of this stuff called called Pura PhosLock which is supposed to be really good at getting rid of the red slime algae, but only time will tell. Picked up some more zoanthid frags at about 10 bucks a frag. or so. Got an "Onyx"/Black and White Ocellaris clownfish for $30 Found out what happened to Wafflez my female clownfish, and the nameless goby, turns out they jumped out of the tank, so for now i just have a piece of eggshell crating atop of the tank.. Got 3 more trochus snails, got rid of my old 2 blue legged hermits because they kept killing my other snails and stealing their shells. Replaced them with 5 more tiny blue legged hermits.
