Sorry about the loss of your Scarlet Hermit Crab. I recently lost my Turbo Snails so I know how you feel. Inverts may not be fish but are still so much fun to have.

Enjoy your new guys!

I actually find them just as fun if not more entertaining to watch than fish sorry about the snails!

I need to replenish my inverts around every 6 months as they are part of the food chain , so I don't get attached

Well in a tank that is majority inverts it's hard not to

Did a water test and got sorta what I expected:

Ammonia: 0.25ppm (assuming from the hermit)
Nitrite: 0ppm
Nitrate: 0ppm (weird because my water change was Monday)

In process of PWC to get ammonia back to 0.

My ammonia test is weird. I'm my freshwater the yellow color is see through. This is like trying to see a fish in a lake underwater. It's not going to happen. The color looks yellow but it's murky.

I didn't do it! I didn't do it I promise! I would never give in to temptation of beautiful corals and a debit card!

Thanks.

Invertebrates sure are a blast, especially shrimp! They're my favorite kind of inverts, I love how Cleaners just jump on arms and clean them like it's a fish . I think it is Paul on here that calls them cuticle shrimp, or is the someone else? LOL

For some reason my Kenyi isn't fully extending yet my other corals look fine and are extended fine.

Also I left my hermits shell in there just incase another wanted to renovate it. Turns out, he isn't dead, he's just lost a claw in a fight or something. I noticed when I saw him come out for heading time.

How long has the kenya tree been in there? Have you tried a different spot? Soft coral can be finicky about the flow they are in.
