The Actinodiscus Mushrooms are also referred to as Mushroom Anemones and Disc Anemones. They were previously in a genus called Discosoma. These invertebrates display a wide variety of colors, textures, and patterns. Some are solid colors, such as the blue specimen pictured above, whereas, others are striped or spotted. The taxonomy of the various species is in a state of flux, and will probably continue to change.
They are hardy and moderately easy to maintain, and under the right conditions, will multiply and spread very rapidly. In general, they need a medium light level, and should be placed lower in the tank if the light intensity is high. The Actinodiscus Mushrooms prefer a low to medium water flow within the aquarium, although different species may have different requirements. They are semi-aggressive and require adequate space between themselves and other corals and sessile invertebrates. Each ships as several individual mushrooms attached to one rock.
An Actinodiscus Mushrooom receives some of its nutritional requirements through the photosynthesis of the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae which it hosts. It also feeds on other nutrients and particulate matter and benefits from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp fed to each polyp of the colony.
It ships as several small chips of rock each containing one mushroom, glued to one larger rock. These mushrooms do require a few days after acclimation to fully open.

Tunze DOC Skimmer 9404 compact
The trend within the nano aquaristics area is continuing. This type of tank is already often being offered with cabinet technology. If the question of the skimmer is addressed, you will find a multitude of models which are often too big, too expensive, or too inefficiently dimensioned. Thanks to the experience we’ve been able to gain in the field of motorized skimmers since 1963, we were able to develop the successful Comline®DOC Skimmer 9004 four years ago. The unit is highly compact with minimum space requirements, and it can operate efficiently in nano aquariums with up to 250 liters (66 USgal.). This model can also be used in cabinet filters with a variable level from 80 to 250 mm (3.1 to 9.8 in.) thanks to the specially designed container 9004.500. It is able to compensate water level fluctuations without the need for a constant adjustment, it contains a durable controllable Comline® pump and a post filter just like any DOC Skimmer cabinet. The Comline® DOC skimmer 9004 can function optimally in this 9004.500 container just like in any customized aquarium. Therefore, it offers the benefits of our larger models such as the easily removable cup, the Anti Over-foaming System and the Flash Skimming feature. The DOC Skimmer 9404 compact is very easy to install, features silicone feet for a completely silent operation and can be easily positioned in every nano cabinet filter.
Removable post filter enables a perfect added mechanical filtration down to 300 µm using nylon fibers with only a minor biological action. This ensures that no unwanted nutrient and nitrate deposits can develop in case of longer cleaning intervals. The filter can be filled with other filter media, such as activated carbon or phosphate absorbers.
$480.00TUNZE Turbelle Stream 3
The new Turbelle® stream 3 precisely addresses the wishes of today's aquaristics industry. It is also compact, powerful, versatile, and moreover
absolutely quiet thanks to its special magnetic-bearing pump drive. The stream 3 is energy efficient and has a warranty period of 5 years!
In 2002 TUNZE® presented a propeller-equipped circulation pump, and through this coined the name for a type of pump: The Turbelle® stream. Since then, TUNZE® has accomplished major developments in this area. The Turbelle® stream 3 is a completely new kind of circulation pump for small and large aquariums. With its innovative design, it can integrate almost invisibly into every aquarium. Thanks to the new magnetic-bearing pump drive, its superior feature lies in the completely silent operation - even at higher power levels. With a consumption of just 3.5 to 50 W, its performance can be set between 2,500 (660 USgal./h) to 15,000 l/h (3,962 USgal./h). It is delivered with the Turbelle® controller and a 5 m cable to the pump. The silence Magnet Holder ensures a fixation on every point of the aquarium glass pane up to a glass thickness of 15 mm (2/3"). The new 0.8 Hz FishCare function prevents injuries to fish or other living animals. Every 24 hours, the pump automatically performs an 8-second backflushing operation with a capacity of 30%. The glass thickness can be expanded up to 19 mm (3/4 in.) for larger aquariums (accessory).
Microsorum pteropus ‘Trident’ is found attached to roots and rocks in streams and rivers, along riverbanks, and in marshes. Rhizome should be anchored to wood or stone. If planted in substrate, ensure rhizome is never buried, to avoid rot. Leaves grow 6-12 inches dependent on available nutrient. Thrives with regular fertilization. Black areas on leaves are sporangia, reproductive organs, not necessarily symptom of deficiency. Transparent areas on leaves are a result of too much light. Medium light is sufficient for optimal growth, excellent growth in diffused light. Water circulation / current is essential to optimal growth.
Java fern reproduces by adventitious plants at tips of leaves. After plantlets develop several leaves and roots, they can be separated and propagated. Propagation also possible by cutting rhizome, ensure that leaves and roots attached to each section. Capable of emersed growth in humid conditions, rhizome must remain in water and leaves require sufficient moisture in air. This plant is not eaten by herbivorous fish.
