I like that aquascape!
Your life is, a possible bristle worm (kinda hard to tell from the pic), good stuff ther, I consider them a great part of my clean up crew.
2nd life pic is a feather duster, another good thing and harmless filter feeder.

Looks good. Nice job planning everything out.

What kind of sand is that? Almost looks like the beach sand they sell at my local builders supply store.

edit: Mike, I am seeing things or did you just change your avatar like 5 mins ago?

melosu58 i got the lr from a guy in san diego who wanted bigger lr so he sold me his at 2 dollars a pound i bought 30lbs worth. really well kept. coraline algae moved really fast onto other rocks. great buy.

cccapt- i bought the sand at home depot its natural play sand i like it. it has the beach feeling...

Looks good. I like the how the LR is setup and you have good flow. I think your turbos might starve as i see no algea for them. Plus turbo snails are distructive , they always knock things like coral and rock over. A few is OK but i wouldnt get any more.
Not sure about the worm but this might help.Look in the left collum and press the hitch hicker tab.
