 Are  the  eggs  on  a  Tridacna  shell?
 The  Gorgonian  looks  cool  but  is  this  something  you  can  maintain?

 Gorgonians  are  tough  but  people  in  Europe  and  the  States  keep  them...
 
 This  is  because  they  have  plankton  cultures  like  nannochloris  sp  added  to  the  tank  regularly

 IMO  looks  like  a  varient  of  the  Ellisella  sp.  commonly  known  as  the  pacific  sea  whip  gorgonian(or  it's  varient)  and  it  is  not  photosynthetic  so  will  need  to  be  fed  -  generally  poor  survival  rate  in  captivity.

 @Lycodon,
 
 I  too  have  come  across  the  ones  in  pic  #1  often  near  Worli  koliwada.  The  colour  remained  unchanged  and  the  body  intact  for  about  20  days,  hence  i  thought  they  couldn't  be  eggs  of  any  sort.  
 
 Although  at  just  a  foot  deep  water  at  the  rocky  shore,  it  was  hard  to  break  that  rock  off.  But  i  came  back  lucky  with  a  blue  MOW  with  pale  yellow  tentacles.  
   Very Happy

 Hi  what  do  you  mean  by  "Locally  collected  marine  life".  I'm  asking  because  I'm  in  a  coastal  area  as  well.  Your  ideas  would  be  helpful.  Thanks.

 well,  locally  collected  means  actually  locally  collected...............
 going  out  to  the  near  by  shores  and  checking  out  the  local  marine  fauna.........
 
 I  my  case  90%  of  my  marine  tank  inhabitants  are  locally  collected…………….
 Local  collection  is  all  abut  long  hours  in  the  sun,  lifting  rocks,  slipping  and  falling  many  times,  getting  your  hands  cut  on  the  barnacles,  also  many  unsuccessful  trips,  but  being  persistent  of  your  luck  with  nature……………  
 its  not  very  fancy,  but  if  one  is  passionate  about  observing  life  forms  in  their  natural  habitat,  it  can  really  be  fun,  informative  and  very  rewarding!!!!  Rock On  
 
 anyways,  which  shore/cost  do  you  stay  next  to???

 Sounds  interesting.I'm  in  Chennai.  
 
 What  do  you  carry  them  back  home  in?  Some  kind  of  bucket  with  the  same  water?
 
 Can  you  give  me  some  tips.Maybe  I'll  try  this  one  day  soon.
 Thanks

 Yes  I  have  a  90g  marine  tank.  It's  just  one  month  old  and  I  am  waiting  to  see  some  life  come  from  thr  LR.  Anyone  knows  anyone  in  Chennai  who  deals  with  saltwater  aquarium  realted  stuff?  My  husband  has  checked  out  kolattur  and  it's  really  really  far  from  our  place....so  we  were  looking  out  for  another  option  as  well.

 Juji,
 carefull  when  you  look  for  hitchhikers...
 sometimes  you  get  shark  eggs  in  live  rock  if  the  quality  of  live  rock  was  really  good  and  was  collected  from  deep  water.
 
   ROFL  
 
 Ok,  seriously  now  Smile
 has  your  tank  cycled?  how  did  you  cure  the  rock?  was  it  cured  by  you  at  all?
 else  the  life  forms  in  it  might  have  perished  a  long  time  ago  in  your  tank.
 
 Also,  what  critter  do  you  EXACTLY  think  you  will  find  comming  out  off  your  live  rock?
 This  is  a  wrong  expectation  that  many  ppl  set  when  selling  you  live  rock.
 Most  of  the  time  the  forms  of  life  will  be  small  as  in  really  small  like  the  diameter  of  a  thread.
 Some  if  very  lucky  will  get  the  ocassional  coral  polyp  that  will  mostly  not  survive  the  curing.
 
 I  would  suggest  to  only  look  at  LR  as  
 1.  filteration  help
 2.  Looks  neat  with  less  weight
 3.  Helps  buffer  water  a  bit.
 
 
 cheers
 Ranjith

 maybe  some  snails  or  sponges  also  if  th  quality  was  good.
 mostly  i  would  be  happy  with  good  growth  of  macro  algae  and  nice  shapes  to  help  scaping  Smile
