No I don't think it was because of the plants. I was too enthusiastic feeding my fish so overfeeding was the most likely cause. Being thoroughly freaked and grossed out, I did some research and those were probably planaria worms. They disappeared after I cut back on the food.

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

So I got a question about the scooter. they are supposed to be like mandarins in that they eat ALL day long. I just fed some prepared food and he totally pigged out and now he has stopped pecking at the sand. Does that mean he is full for now?

I know, silly question...LOL

hey got a question for you does your clownfish ever try to host your elegance? i caught this activity today and the elegance doesnt seem to like it one bit hes closed up pretty small today, before this it got pretty huge so do i just let nature takes its course or try to move the coral somewhere else so they wont bother it

Oh yeah hack, all FOUR of my clowns like to host it. And to be honest they are killing mine. I don't know how to discourage them.

I've moved them out of the tank and rearranged, no luck. I've taken the coral out for a few days, put it back, no luck.
I only have the 2 b&w's hosting it right now, the lone oscellaris is kinda hanging on the other side of the tank.

I hope they settle down, they literally dive bomb into the elegance. lol

Be careful the clowns don't hurt themselves too, they can literally love the coral to death and then continue to love the skeleton and scratch themselves up pretty bad. Thats why I'm so glad mine are hosting my green mushroom haha maybe get some big hairy mushrooms or something. They might host them if you take the elegance out and put the mushrooms in, might take a few weeks though.

Then I'll wait a week or two and get a couple of clowns (i am really looking at those maroon/yellow ones!).

Taking it slow! even though it's so hard
