Ok, crabs are added and I couldn't get a clear pic of them. The pom pom is already in hiding. The porc crab actually landed near my carpet nem...we'll see if he finds it i guess. 4250 pods were added to the system as well along with 4 tonga snails to keep at my sandbed. Then, lots of zoas. I was actually surprised by some of them and that some have actually started opening up some with lights out. Though I am happier with reefs2go...they need to work on their plugs. A small sliver of rock smaller than the nail on your pinkie is not a plug or anything for that matter.

Oh, and there might be an engineer goby as well.

And before I did anything, my flowerpot looked like it never had before, so I thought I'd share. It is back to normal now.
This is normal

Bubble tip flowerpot?

The flower pot looked beautiful! Engineer gobies are cool! So are Pom Pom crabs.

I might never see it again, but I hope that he finds a nice place where I can see him...

Oh, and my reef octopus skimmer is skimming now. I plugged one of the holes on the silencer. Wet skim and slow, but I'll take it.

Hmmm if you had to plug your a silencer hole it seems to me it needs some adjusting . Probably need to bring the water level in the skimmer up some.

I love my engineer goby he has taken on his new markings. He stays under rocks all day but at feeding time he is ready
