SharkTV

Happy New Year – not much has happened in the tank. Project baby has kept me busy, but now it pays of. The aquarium is a great baby pacifier and now little Sigrun is big enough to sit herself in front of the tank.

Still struggling with high nitrates (around 15 mg/l) but the phospates are reduced from 0,3 mg/l to 0,1mg/l. The coralline algae is starting to show through the thick carpets of green and red algae. The sharks are thriving on Mysis and small herring.

Restocking

The cod finally got to big for the aquarium – mostly because it eats more than the filters can handle. The two sculpins where put back into the ocean.

Instead I caught a lumpsucker, shrimps and thousands of mysis to feed the shark babies. I now have three newly hatched sharks and a small Greater weever.

Below are pictures form my collection trip when I caught the Greater weever and msyis caught during a night dive. Mysis gets attracted to the light form the dive torch and are easy to scoop up with fine-mesh net in front of the light.

Sharks

My tank has got new sharks small-spotted catshark (Scyliorhinus canicula). Sharks are my favourite fish, since they reaylle act and look like the predator they are and they seem to have a bit more personalty than the always hungry cods. Three eggs are waiting to hatch and one has already hatched. The hatched one likes to eat small herring and mysis, so for now it is growing fine.

Here is a photo of a shark embryo waiting to hatch. Its fine brushlike gills are clearly visible and the eyes is very large already.
