j/k I love my tanks soo much.

As long as I see them once in a while, it makes me smile. There are always a few hiders in the bunch. I like to feed my serpent with a long set of tweezers I have. I can usually see a leg, and it'll come closer when it smells the chunks of meat Lately I just enjoy going down to the sump and see what's in there. Yesterday I found a new shelled thing that is multiplying, saw 3 of them at once, so I'm sure there are more. Such a fun hobby.

When I fed my goby some squid just now one of the serpents legs came from behind a rock and grabbed a piece! I was like no way, how cool is that? I can sit for hours and watch what goes on in the tanks. Always finding something new or seeing something for the first time.

I have tried at least 10 different things. :-( He seems to maybe eat some of the emerald entree frozen cubes, but I can't be 100%. I've been turning off all the flow and trying the turkey baster. I added some to the rocks to, I figure he's always pecking at the rocks maybe he'll peck up some food. lol

I'm heading over to your thread to check it out! Nice!

the emerald entree has brine in it and mysis and bunch of other stuff. I wasn't successful with growing my brine eggs I don't think lol. I left them outside but it got cold last night.

I think they take a few days to hatch, they are really small to begin with too, shining a flashlight in helps to see them. I bet they will still hatch, I have a little bag of the already shelled eggs (so they hatch quicker) and they are kept in the fridge. I usually just poor some eggs into an ice cream bucket and float it in my sump with a bubbler.

I found a steal on CL!! I got 95 lbs of base rock for $50.

I put some in the pod tank, some in my 29g reg sw (has my bad behaving clowns right now) and I plan on putting some more in the cube too. Good news is I now have enough rock in total for a 125g. I officially have 220lbs.

Just gotta get some lr to seed the pod tank and the 29g. I think I may keep the 29g reg tank as a fowlr for now. I'm real tempted to not sell it after all. LOL
