lol that I do.
I ordered the 55g reef cleaner package from reefcleaners.org
I'm sure he put in extra in case some were dead on arrival (wasn't the case)
So I have a buttload of snails.
I really like the scattered look they give though, it's kinda cool!

Nice growth especially on that plate coral. And I bet with all those Ceriths you probably never have to clean your glass.

The dwarf ceriths mostly dwell on the rock and sand. Not many glass cleaners but I suppose it does stay relatively clean. I do wipe down the microalgae haze once or twice a week.

Picked up a blue mushroom, duncan, and branching hammer.







I think I've wore this thread out. I pretty much know all I need to know for the moment and if I need to know more I'll start separate threads. I don't wanna drag this one out tooo much longer.

Last task is to catch the coral beauty so I can let the DT be fishless for 6 weeks to kill off the ich.

2 chromis are in QT with copper and are doing great.

Thanks buffy.

I can't get my darn BTA to eat. The way he has positioned himself I can't get the silversides down to him. Tongs or stabbing stick thingy. Should I reach in there and physically move him somewhere more available or will he come out when he's hungry enough?

I'm not sure if he's eaten in a week because I can't see the fish after I let go of them.

There's no way to reach in the tank and just jiggle the inch of silverside in its tentacle then let go of it for it to eat

Nope, the rocks are positioned too close to the back glass. The tongs fit but not my hand. But then I can't see.

However there's a "cave" in the rocks where I can see his foot and underside. I could probably grab him from under there.

I wouldn't recommend moving the anemone unless you move his rock. If you damage the foot it will die

Agree with above the only way to really pry their foot off effectively is to take the rock their attached to out of the water then doing it
