Clown Trigger's Black Beard - Aquarium Forum
Saltwater and Reef Photography This is the photography forum for the SW section. It's a dedicated forum to post pictures of some of the things in our tanks, pics of new additions, as well as for great information exchange, tips, tricks, and overall just discussing cameras and photography techniques of our tanks. Learn all about apertures, f-stops, ISOs, macro, flashes, white balance, and anything and everything else that drives us crazy to get a masterpiece shot. Feel free to show off your tanks in here, and plus its a great way for humble people to nonchalantly have their reef tanks nominated by the other members for Tank Of The Month. Don't be shy!

Talking Clown Trigger's Black Beard

It is always fun to watch and play with my trigger Cosmo. He now learns to pick up food pellet from a spoon!
A young clown trigger does have more yellow than the adult; with disappearance of yellow it grows " black beards" at the age of ~2-3 years old.

Young (3 years)


Adult (6 years)

Success is measured by years, not by months.

Your photos have me seriously wanting a SW setup.

"I've macrostoma tastes on a veiltail budget. "

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Re: Clown Trigger's Black Beard

It's easier to start with fish only because it costs much less than reef. The problem is you may get stuck with the fish only because fun marine fishes are, most of times, not reef compatible. So be prepared to have two tanks!!!

Re: Clown Trigger's Black Beard

Ran out of my Quantofix nitrate test strips, starts converting to API. This is a lousy product because it's too sensitive and not user friendly to use. It took me couple days to figure what's wrong and I surely know what's wrong because I have a control nitrate standard, which is 40ppm NO3 in sea water. Guess what, API showed my control to be 1000ppm. By now all my lovely fishes should all be dead long before it reached 1000ppm nitrate. I did a 1/25 dilution of my control and it did show 40ppm by API. Two week later I did same dilution with my tank water, API scale tells me NO3 is between 40-80ppm---that is exactly I anticipated!
Make a 1/25 dilution of water to be tested, before try API!!!
