LOL. I wish I could see what happens when all the lights go off. My little emeralds do the dance on the front glass which is why I love them so much! Do yours do the dance at all? I know several people have said they have the dancing crabs as well lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

He does it when I feed him. Climbs up to the very top stone and flares his arms all about while standing on his back legs. I really enjoy him, but, $8 crab vs expensive coral, I'm gonna pick the coral... Lol, my intentions for this tank were to focus on the coral and scape first, while other critters are second, so I'm not dead set on having him. I dunno. Just took a closer look at the torch and it def looks like he's took a couple tentacles, I'm not positive though... I think in a larger more established tank they have more room to graze, but in my 10x10x12 glass box, there's not a lot of places for him to go... Haha

Well, I finally got around to removing the zoas from the frag disc and glued them down with some loctite super glue gel. Needless to say, they're a little pissed off right now. I'll post another pic once they open up.

I decided to do a full run of all tests I own tonight, here are the results...

pH - 7.8
kH - 12
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 5
Phosphate - 0
Calcium - 480
Salinity - 1.024
Temp - 78

I also decided to take some pics with my wife's old digital camera. Not the best but they'll do. The diatoms are slowly disappearing, and I'm starting to see signs of life! So far I've seen a couple pods come out of the sand bed, I've got a few Asterina stars that came in with the corals, and I also saw a very tiny bristle worm poke its head out of a tiny hole in the rocks! Those guys give me the willies! Ew. Anyways, I think that's about it for now. Oh! Does it look like the zoas have zoa pox??? They have tons of tiny white dots on all the stocks... Here's the pics...














Lemme know what you guys think! Thanks for reading!

Yea, it appears the cycle is wrapped up. It actually finished before I added the coral and snails, but I had a nitrite spike after adding them. All better now! thank you so much!
