So far it doesn't look like the sponges are doing much good. It doesn't look like any chunks are getting caught in the sponges. Rather the chunks just continue to blow around the tank. I don't know what to do!!!!

My turbos ocassionally go across the sand but not often. They haven't done a whole lot of anything lately. They haven't even been keeping my class clean. I had to get one of those magnetic algea scrubbers because the algea was overtaking the glass.

I think I need to supplement with dried seaweed. I have lost a couple lately and I am wondering if they are starving. I used tap water and algea started growing a lot. After awhile it slowed down. Now that I have been topping off with distilled it seems to have gone away.

I may get rid of the snails. They are pretty boring. I definetly want to keep some blue leg hermits in there though.

I just ordered 100 nassarius snails. I hope they do a good job.
