Well there are a lot of Jell-O flavors so I understand the confusion. 😀

Dary's tank!

I whine a lot. It's really not too hard to keep in balance. The problem is this is a hobby you can't put in the closet for 6 months like a pair of snow skis or my scuba equipment. You have to apply yourself everyday for years and in my case, decades. That is VERY hard to do. Even a garden can be left alone for a while without damage.

Big skirmish avoided last nite when my banded shrimp decided to try and invade " dougie's" coral cavern and try and pick out bits and pieces of mysis etc that I had tried to inject near " dougie ".., I think my presence spooked the shrimp for now .... " dougie "The crab stood its ground tho... Click image for larger version

Uhoh....Those coral banded's can be pretty tough. I had one that took out a larger Arrow crab in a fight to the death that reminded me a lot of "Jason And The Argonauts".

yeah, I've gotten rid of two of them because they began to hunt the other tank inhabitants.
when I saw the last one grab my mandarin by the head and tail and I had to break it up, that was the last straw.
luckily my mandarin has now healed up, she grew back her upper lip that got torn off, and only has a minor scar on her head now.

It's been kind if a busy week with the arrival of my bro al from Florida ,.. Preparing for our yellowtail fishing trip on Monday and getting fitted for contacts last Monday ,... Also accidentally knocked a jar of alk solution into my tank too :-/ , a quick pwc averted disaster there thank goodness ,... No more aggressive behavior from the banded shrimp towards dougie the coral crab that I've seen ( pun intended now that I have my contacts ) but overall all's ok on the pacific side
