Whelp, the diatoms have come to this tank. LOL Have a nice layer of brown on some of the rocks and on some of the sand.

Been testing daily and not a tiny bit of ammonia or nitrites so i may move the other couple fish over soon. yay! poor little guys in the bare bottom 10g tank. lol

I'm thinking it's time to add some inverts so I was thinking about
5 or 6 scarlet hermit crabs
another porcelain crab ( have one already)
a serpent starfish, preferably a red one
2 or 3 emerald crabs
AND a pair of the fire shrimp

Sound good? I have 2 hermits in already and maybe 3 snails. I wasn't going to add any more snails due to the nature of the rimless tank. lol I've run across a few that made it out of the tank and a few feet away from the 20g rimless. hehehe....

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

I've had that happen. Found an Astrea on my back porch a few months back. And it was still chugging along! Lol

I have 2 or 3 astrea snails and maybe 2 nassarius. Only what hitched a ride from the other tanks. lol

The snails that i do have are all up high near the overflow so it's just a matter of time before they go over and in. lol

I've found several snails over the last year or so away from their tanks, so far they have all lived too. They are really hardy little buggers. lol I also don't like the look of a gaggle of snails all on the glass of the rimless, kinda supposed to be clear and perfect hehe....

Sounds good!

Are Porcelain Crabs the ones that live in anemones?

Nope, the porcelains have these little arms that they wave around for food. Its really neat. The one I have still came out of the pico and it getting so big. he keeps molting. lol

I'll have to find a picture of the guy, not sure I have any, he is a shy one.

Cool, thanks!

My LFS always has these little crabs that live and crawl around in in Flower Anemones, pretty fun to watch!

Just ordered my MP10 so that should be here by Monday. Still working on the skimmer though, might find out today if I have one already or not.

Other than that everything is going well. Still have diatoms but the fish are all happy and eating. It's amazing what the larger tank has done fpr the firefish, he is always out and about now, nice change.

Might pick up some cuc today if they have them AND I should be picking up a new coral I had them hold onto, a peppermint acan.

woohoo! fun fun day ahead, love fish store shopping days! LOL
