Looks like bristleworms to me, tons of them! So I got out the tweezers and took some of the really large ones out, not because I dont want them but because the wife is scared of worms lol I still have loads of them hiding in the rock just not that she saw
As for the progress well...
clean the tank--Check
get a stand---Check (**** I hate building furniture)
Making up Salt water-----checkish...im sitting at between 1.023 and 1.024 and have the tank 3/4 of the way full (im making about 10G at a time and getting the gravity right then into the tank it goes)
Setting up Filter---Check
Skimmer---Check after fighting with it for a good 45min to an hour...and its now starting to make bubbles
Substrate is about 2" thick and I washed it fairly well but the tank is white now...I guess this is normal and should let up in a few days, either way LR
is still in the bucket with a heater and PH.
Also the skimmer is loud as all **** any ideas how to make it less disruptive? (its a redsea prizm)
Pictures still to come I have a few take of the before and none of the after math..yet..
