Good to hear! Thanks!

Oh and is there any specific reason for the emerald crabs that you recommended? I think they're pretty awesome so ordering some would not be an issue at all lol.

A thought just occurred to me. I've got a nice deep sand bed in my fuge, but does that mean I should get some Nassarius snails for my fuge? Or something else to keep my sand turning over?

Well, anyone got any advice on this one? Nassarius snails/sand stirring critters in a deep sand bed fuge or no?

I have a dsb in my refugium and don't have any snails in there. Not sure if it's right or wrong just how I have my setup. I do have a hermit crab that hitched a ride on a piece of live rock though.

Got another question for you guys. I'm going to test the water again today, and if my cycle is complete, I'll be ordering my CUC from reefcleaners.org this week. But should I also order the macroalgae for my fuge or should I wait? If so, what kinds? How much? Sorry for all the questions lol. I'm at a complete loss as far as the fuge algae goes...

I would order the macro when you get the cuc, saves time and money.
I currently only have chaeto and caulpera in mine with some live rock and sand. You can also add some pods if you want.
