Definitely, Jason! (week late is better than never, haha).
Since the family reunion, I have only lost 1 hermit crab. Jack, the jawfish, has moved his den to the complete opposite side of the tank and loves it. He is not as colorful as I was wanted, but I'm hoping it's a lighting issue. I know it's not stress because he swims happily throughout the entire tank.
The coralline algae is starting to spread and I can start to see bright red, purple, and green spots over all of the LR
. As for my diatoms, I still have a good amount in the overflow, but I'm hoping that new light and more PWC
will get rid of them shortly.
I have noticed a lot of Spirorbid worms popping up all over my glass and overflow (I've read it means my tank is healthy, yay!). I've seen about 2 small snails, but I'm not sure if they're offspring or hitchhikers.
My taxes are done and my return couldn't come back soon enough. My first purchase is going to be a T5 fixture, and then I may get a PH for stronger flow in the tank.
Once I get that set up, I'm going to look at getting some zoas and maybe a long tentacle anemone; I would also love a skunk cleaner shrimp. Eventually I would like to get a small goby, but I'm waiting for my sand to get some food in it beforehand; he might come in a couple of months.
Looking at all the posts on this site everyday and getting daily updates on LiveAquaria, I'm only teasing the heck out of myself and I want to get everything at once! haha. However, I am in no hurry and will continue to take my time, I feel that I have saved a good amount of money already by just being diligent. Anyway, I'll try to get some pictures up soon so we
can see if there's been any coralline growth.
