Here is a quick video I thought I would share. This is the second week it has been up and guess what...the algae has arrived! Think I need a bigger cleanup crew

looking good
didn't forget about you and the star still trying to catch him he wedged himself in a place I can't get to easily unless I tear up the rock work really don't want to do that I baited up a small juice bottle to catch him but no luck caught just about every other invert I have in the tank

I had the same thing after transferring to the bigger tank diatoms all over the sand
I raked the sand daily and did bigger water changes
how deep is your sand bed , I just got a bunch of those sand sifting crabs wow they really go to work it kind of neat watching them burrow through the sand bed
they need about 2" deep sand bed the burrows almost look like crop circles

Here is another short vid since my camera sucks lol. This is the new zoa frag,hard to tell but when opened up all the way it has a yellow skirt. Also, towards the end of the video there is a snail like thing crawling around my GSP frag I done yesterday. Any Idea what it may be?

Hey Bud

No problem at all. I know they are not easy to catch and no...don't tear up your rock!

As far as sand bed it is about 11/2" to 2" give or take. I have been slightly blowing the sand around with a turkey baster and is has helped a lot, not as bad now. Will have to check into the sand sifting crabs...I need extra CUC with all the extra space. My current crew is over worked hahaha.
