Always love the updates. Would a Urchin help you with algae? Mine likes to eat Macro algae, a couple nights ago he was eating off the thermometer suction cup, lol Thought you might get some mild amusement from the pic.

lol, I love how urchins can hang on upside down in the oddest of places. I had one float around with a loose thermometer once. Soo funny. lol I have a single pencil urchin in the 90g now. when I had the two urchins, him and the purple one, I had zero algae buildup. Now with the one gone, you can see how much he did do. lol I also have 2 turbo snails in there, for all the good they do. They are old and grumpy now I think. I have had those turbos since I set up the tank which was several years ago. lol Older than most of my fish for sure.

Thanks autumn for reading and catching up.

LOL, you are so right Red! They took over the top half of the rocks already. It's kinda neat to sometimes wake up in the morning and you have an extra critter.

Picked up a green blenny a few days ago for the 60g and today I got a striped blenny for the 60 as well. So far they are doing well, I am hoping to draw out the tang with more fish. lol Also got 10 turbo snails for 10 bucks, great deal around here.

Careys Tank(s) Lots of Pictures, Questions & Thoughts

I bet that is so much fun to wake up and find something new. "Ah, let's check out the tanks this morning...why, look here! I have something new I did have yesterday!" Woohoo new fish alert! I love Blennies, they are always a blast to watch. I would love to see pictures if you have any/when they come out. I hope they help make the Tang feel more bold. Maybe the addition of more fish will make him feel more confident. That is a great deal on the snails! I just love Turbos they are literally the best! I mean, what other creature will eat cyano or anything else in that tank? It's crazy how helpful they can be!

I have been very very negligent in cleaning my glass over the last month or two so it's actually kinda hard to get good photos. THOUGH I did razor blade the 90g, half the 40b and a few spots in the 60g. lol I am currently working on the 180, which asa you can imagine is a beast of a job with me being only like 5 feet tall. LOL I'll see if the new blennys are up to some photos, I know the tang will be a pain to get to come out. I was worried about the two blennies in such a small tank but the green blenny is twice the size of the striped, BUT the striped is a venomous fish so maybe he knows better. hehe

i still dont know exactly what kind of "green": blenny I have, it looks exactly like a smiths blenny. the white one with the black back stripe, but he is green and yellow. The guy just called him a green blenny. he is also a very very picky eater, he hunts for food like a mandarin. I have gotten him to eat a few times, and he only eats frozen if that. Kinda concerned but kinda not, I figure he will work it out at some point.

When is the big day for your new tank Red? Are you gathering equipment and window shopping for what you want?

My BioCube glass needs some work, my Turbos are really helping me out on the back wall of the tank though! And my rocks too of course. It's not coralline thoough, I still need to establish that. But luckily there is some coralline on the shells of some of my Turbos/Hermits, so maybe it will start to spread a little. The big day is April 26! At that point it will be a freshwater setup and will still need to be converted to salt. I think I am going to be setting up another tank, maybe a 55g for the freshwater fish, as I don't think they are very large, and I don't think there are very many. But we will have to see and I can re access. We are also planning on putting a sink near the tank, so that should help tremendously! I am so excited about that. As for equipment, I think I may have the majority of what I need coming with the tank, but I may need to run out and grab a few things after getting it all back to the house. I am so thankful that I am able to get another chance at a 125g, getting rid of my old one was a huge mistake on my part.
