Appreciate it. He says everything is all right. Strange how many times I've been to disney and the number of times, this time, I've watched "Nemo". That little fish has meant so much more to me now. I have shirts, pins, jackets, bags, etc, all with Nemo. Can't wait to get home to my own. Time to add a couple more corals and a fish, don't you think. Tuesday will be 7 weeks, I think.

I think it's safe to add now You may want to start a journal it's a great way to track the tanks progress and it helps to figure things out when the go crazy. Some of mine go back 20 years or more

Wow! Twenty years is a long time. I have a journal I started with my first freshwater tank. I still keep records on the freshwater side, but amazingly, not on the saltwater tank. I have a few notes, but never really got going on the sw, even though I know it will be the trickiest. I go home tomorrow, and am looking forward to seeing the tank (and the husband), so I will try to get going on the journal. Thanks for all your help over the last weeks. But don't think you'll never hear from me again. I'm sure you will on the next problem.

Yes, we have learned so much since then, and my granddaughter will think we were in the stone age in aquaria in a few years. I would love to read your Dad's journals. They still can teach us. And I hope to be able to help people new to the hobby soon. Thanks.

Got a question. (yes, another one or two). What is the difference between a goby and a blenny? And, what is cheato or chaeto, as I've seen it spelled both ways. I believe it is a macro algae, but what exactly is that? Can I put it in the DT or does it only go in a refugium and why? Well, a guess that's more than A question, huh? That's usual for me. I've got to know everything!

Chaeto is a macroalgae that will take up nutrients that would otherwise fuel algae

Ok. It is a macro algae that is only useful in a fuge, which I don't have (yet). Crazy question, but what would happen if I put some in the DT? I'm trying to grasp the significance of this.

Also, still would like to know the difference, behavior wise of a blenny vs a goby. Thanks
