See... I this is where I screwed up with my new tank... I monitored the Ammonia and everything else of course, but didn't think about any hitchikers.. I just let the Ammonia skyrocket and was stoked to see the nitrates kick in.
Now, my tank is awesome.. But now over 2 months into this, I have yet to see any hitchhikers in my tank. No Pods
, worms, crabs, etc...
mtlion: Some things to expect.. Alot of that lovely purple coraline on your new LR
will disapear. Don't sweat it.. I've heard it will come back. I pretty much lost ALL of mine.. But in the last week, I've started to notice some green, orange, and yellow coraline coming back strong in various different locations. Today, I noticed some small purple spots as well.
