Thanks. I'm really proud of my coco worm as they are so difficult to keep in our aquariums. He's been with me for so long, I actually forgot when I got him, but it's been over a year.

In all honesty, I don't do anything special. I don't feed it or the feather duster in my tank at all. So whatever it is eating grows on its own in my system and replenishes itself. The only thing I add to the tank is mysis or brine gut loaded shrimp for the fish and pods for the mandarin.

Quick update, the cheato and pods arrived today from R2G. Typical pod package with no surprises. Same goes with the cheato. I put half the pods into the display, and the fish of course go nuts as always. The other half I dumped into the 'refugium' with the caulerpa and padina, cheato also added. What does this mean you say? To keep the pods going, the light will need to change to an actual light cycle rather than on 24 hours. So, we'll see what happens with the caulerpa.

Interesting. I keep all my fuge lights in 24/7 and keep good pod supplies. So much in fact I have a couple pod hunters in with my mandarin & he only eats pods & is fat!

Really? It was my general belief that they needed the 24 hour light cycle and being blasted with light all day would drive them to death. Guess I won't work so hard and turn the timer on then! Thanks.

I'm very happy with reef crystals and for the price you can't beat it. Every now and again its a little low on the calcium but that can be supplemented inexpensively. Ever since I made the switch to it I've seen great results.

That's the two I didn't like. Took much effort and time to get it to mix. No where close to the level of Kent's or even the 4 hr for Red Sea...though you should mix for longer it shows quality in the salt.
