Sorry I haven't updated in a while. Not terribly much has happened, but I have pictures of what has happened and some more specific plans for what's next.
First, the CUC. Here's what I have:
20 Turbo Snails
10 Red Algae Hermit Crabs
about 7-10 Nassarius Snails
about 10 of some other type of snail (I'll work on getting an ID, but I haven't gotten any good pictures to post yet)
3 Peppermint Shrimp
here are some pictures:
I'm feeding the tank frozen brine shrimp every other day for now. That day I also got a mandarin goby. I tried QTing him because I read that he would eat frozen brine shrimp, but he wasn't interested in that so I just let him into the display tank all by himself (he didn't appear sick or anything). He spends all day grazing over the rock and I occasionally see him getting something to eat. I'm also attempting to hatch brine shrimp eggs and put them in there but I don't know how that's working out. Here are some pictures of the Mandarin:
I can't wait to get a better camera...
I should be going to the fish store this weekend to pick up some more gobies. I'm looking at the two-spot goby still and a couple of clown gobies, which they should have now. If the two-spot doesn't work out I'll probably get a diamond watchman or maybe a sleeper goby. The gobies would probably go straight into the tank without a very long QT (if any) because it would probably be easier to get them to eat in the DT.
If they have blennies, I might get some to QT for a while. I'm mostly looking at forktail blennies and bi-color blennies and we'll see what I can get my hands on from that. With any luck I'll have more pictures this weekend.
