Yes the only bad thing is i won't have an excuse to go to the Lfs every week lol
I think what ever you have or get is better than lugging water around!!! .... I don't get a very long life out of my brs DI resin but it's only like $10-12 for a refill,..heck I spend that for a refill for myself at the liquor store.

On the aquarium front for today,..I'm getting in some ricordea mushrooms, my favorites but also the ones I find the hardest for me to get growing properly,...I'm just going to place them here and there and see what develops,.i also have another small bubble coral coming in with a bunch of nassarius snails which I'm hoping will bury themselves quickly so the trigger fish doesn't have a field day ,I just might wait until night fall when mr trigger is napping before I put them in ,... It'll be a fun afternoon.

Sounds great. Have your ever considered putting in some Yuma mushrooms? Maybe you already have them.. They are pretty cool. There is also another, more expensive mushroom called st. Something mushroom. I forget, Maybe francis.

Ricordeas seem to do really well in dirty water. Those with clean water often have a heard time to get them to grow. I've seen some really nice ricordea gardens tho

I do have a Yuma or two in there somewhere,... There's so many rocks in the tank it's easy to lose track of'em ,...my hairy lavender mushroom colony is starting to multiply and is slowly starting to climb up a rock face ,..pretty neat to see.

Is that what it is? I love the look of Ricordia, and they will stay alive for years, but slowly get smaller and smaller until they are gone.
My Lavender hairy's on the other hand reproduce like crazy!! Had some for a long time and over time, they've probably quintupled. Even though I've traded about 20 in, I've got them everywhere, it's actually a bit of a problem, and they are very hard to remove from any prime real estate. I cut them, it comes back, mutilate it.... Don't know what else to try. Ohh well.
Good luck with the Rics Dary.
