No, no, I can't. Oh but I sure want to. Thanks a lot, girl!! LOL!
What brand of ink do you use?
BTW, I saw on some culinary travel show a couple of weekends ago that mantis shrimp are now being served as a delicacy. Seriously!
Thanks and my heart goes out to you, too. I remember you were famous for your sun corals. If I were to do any vertebrates again, it would probably just be a couple of clowns on a rose BTA so people wouldn't ask where the fish are haha. Speaking of that I bet if anyone is reading this they are wondering what the heck we're talking about! I'm going to post a pic of my tank for old times sake.
A 20 g...you know what that leads to...and as you know in many ways more effort.
I use Icing Images ink and love it the best. The problem was my fault for letting the printer be turned off and unused for too long. Before I used the kind bakery Crafts sells with their printers - good color, but very cloggy. Then I used some called Edible Images, I think - never could get a red from that.
After I caught my mantis, I gave him his own tank out of pure respect. The nerve of anyone eating one!! He was so hard to catch. He even outsmarted the trigger I borrowed. (bad move in general, but I was clueless then - he ate every beneficial worm in the tank)
This was maybe a year before Ike, before my rose BTA and lots more corals. I never saw your tanks, but i do remember pics of the suns. I gave out lots of frags of that gorgonian. If anyone has a survivor that would probably be enough to get the bug again. That thing loved frozen cyclopeeze...
May my babies rest in peace-
