Picture time, not the best quality, I promise better later but it was just a quick picture. Here is Ernie and his two new friends. Ernie was rehomed from the 5g nano that I had to put him in since the girlfriend brought him home. Also when I moved a few things from the nano over to the 38g, I somehow hitch hiked a pod over so hopefully I can establish a good size colony.

So in put a seaweed sheet in yesterday... Well 1/4 of one anyway and I was going to remove it this morning but my hitch hiking pods seem to love it. Is there any harm in leaving it?

Yes. It's called overfeeding lol. If you leave it in it will begin to break down into the nitrogen process and cause your nitrates and phosphates to rise.

Shake it.. what ever stays on don't worry about they wont effect your numbers really. They repopulate very quickly and for every one you see there is probably 100 more in hiding
