Q&A - Sea Apples

By Rob Toonen

Rob, I recently purchased a sea apple, and wanted to find some more information about how best to care for it. A friend of mine has had his sea apple for about 4 months, and it seems to be doing well. He target feeds it by using a turkey baster to squirt enriched baby brine shrimp (soaked in Selcon for an hour or so) a couple of times a week, and aside from that he says it catches some of the bits of adult brine that he feeds to his fish and larger corals. I know that there is a risk of them poisoning the tank if they die, but I really like the thing and really want to have one in more.

Product Review of Wave2K

Manufactured by Jomi Aquatic Products

Product Review - Wave2K (Written 2004) There are many different wave-making devices on the market, however, there's nothing that compares to the water movement that a Wave2K generates! I've seen just about everything when it comes to producing water movement and/or making waves in the aquarium. Most direct alternating streams of water, but Wave2K actually creates repeated surges of water at both the upper and lower levels of the aquarium, which is especially useful in reef systems. And when Wave2K is installed, there is no longer a need for powerheads, timers, extraneous plumbing and wires more.

Q&A Letter Spotlight

Kim Koch writes to Bob about: Trickle Filters & Plenum

Dear Bob, I have been operating an aquarium service in the LA area for the past ten years. The plenum filter system has seemed to work well with invert dominated tanks. My question is to what advantage could the plenum system be used in a fish only aquarium. Many of my clients enjoy large angels, tangs, eels and groupers. Housing these animals and processing their waste would need a large bio filter such as a wet/dry. Could you (or would you) use a plenum with a wet/dry? Thank you, Kim Koch [response] Hi Kim, That's a good question and I can understand where you're coming more.
