Ok, fixed the issue with the HOB overflow again. It was clogged. Going strong it seems.

My final order form SWF has arrived. 1 porcelain crab, 1 plum crazy, 1 bumblebee snail, 1 coco worm, 1 derasa clam, and 1 random brain. Just want to say, HOLY ****. You'll see why. I love saltwaterfish.com. The coco worm has been out once, but the dog scared it back in. Get a pic when I can.

Everything looks great!! Like the clam, and it seems happy. (Keep in mind that I know absolutely nothing about clams) lol. But it seems like it opened up a little- that's good, right??

Yes, that is good lol. I have more pics now that everything is more adjusted. The brain is great too. It and the clam really stick out in the fts.

Does the brain need target feeding?

Nope. It'll prob get some once and awhile, but doesn't require it.

Everything looks beautiful! The brain adds such a nice splash of color. And the clam looks really cool. Nice additions!

I still can't believe how big the clam is. I have the shell from the maxima that died outside the tank and put it infront of it. Man, size of a quarter vs a 6-8 inch across monster. My jaw hit the floor when I picked it up.

Thank you. It has been quite the struggle to find just what I was looking for. The open brain and clam surprised me this time around. I've gotten pretty used to how things arrive in the mail. The clam is big. The brain, I was expecting another plain jane coral. I had myself prepared for an all green favia or something. I was kinda sad that it was an open brain at first. I have already killed 2 of them in the past, never even inflating themselves. I'm really believing that it is because of how powerful the Ecotech Radions are. Now that I have realized this and adjusted, things are doing much better. I literally sat infront of my tank for quite some time watching the brain inflate. Totally new experience, nothing in my tank is like it. Now to work out the technical bits with my dslr so everyone can see what I do as well.

I decided today after doing research last night that the reason my acro is brown is from too much zoo. How to decrease the zoo? Lower nutrients in water and increase light. Radions turned up 7%.
