Reefcleaners order just came My snails and hermits seem to be just fine. As usual, great packaging and service. Little bit disappointed that the macro algae I ordered is kinda small but I guess it will grow.

Some cuc pictures since no one really takes photos of them LOL

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

Wow! Those are some gorgeous CUC. (Ok, so if we are pumping them up by taking pictures we might as well go over the top a bit and make them feel really special).

LOL. Poor cuc, under rated and undervalued. All I know is those nerite snails do a fantastic job of cleaning the grunge where the sand meets the glass. Far from pretty but they get the job done. I haven't overloaded the tank with cuc so it's nice to add some here and there. I could most likely use alot more but I wanna keep it simple.

You always do! Thanks for the interest, it makes it really worthwhile to have people comment on your tank. I love the input!

Now I just gotta see if I can fit the coral through the opening between my lights and the tank LOL. It's in my sump right now...hopefully I can get it in the tank without needing my b/f's help to take down the lighting.

Thanks for the heads up on the nerite snails. I've been looking for something to help where the sand meets the glass!

I managed to get the coral in, but it broke in the bag so now I have a large coral and one a few inches. Hoping the smaller one will be ok in the 20g, not quite sure where it broke off from its such a maze of branches. lol

But heres some shots of the new coral. It looks much better in person I think, alot more color to it.
