Very excited.... Picking up a reef octopus for $45 in about an hour. I'll be taking the sump from my freshwater and putting it here.

Putting a 406 on the freshwater

Well, how's the skimmer and switched sump? Here pretty soon you'll be wanting a light to grow macro algae in there too!

Okie dokie....

Found a "bug" on my acan. No pics as it scurried away quickly.

It is black, oblong, and fairly flat. It looks like it has antennas. It is a bit larger than a finger nail clipping. Moves very fast. The way it scurried reminded me of a roach.

Any ideas?
