Yeah, I saw them going into the sand. Good to hear

I got Aiptasia-x today and squirted it at the little polyp. Not sure if I got him enough cus as soon as I squirted the stuff he dived into his little hole but I squirted the stuff into his hole as well. If he comes back I'll just try again.

Test results this morning!

Ammo: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrates: 40-ish

My LFS is having a huge event today and a big sale on fish. Works great for me!

I'm going to do a large WC this afternoon to get the nitrates down.

I assume I'm good to go for fish! Was planning on getting my firefish and a hermit crab and a few snails.

I remove the shrimp before I put in the fish, right?

I tried aiming the circulation pump towards a wall but honestly it doesn't really want to cooperate... Leaving to go get fish soon. I'll see how the fish does against the current and adjust as needed.

It creates so much flow... lol. I hope my flow isn't too... whirl-poolish? It kinda moves the water around the entire tank. Is this good?

Got my firefish! Also got two blue-legged hermit crabs and 3 turbo snails. They guy assured me that the turbos were great for 10 gallon tanks yet I thought I remember reading somewhere they preferred larger tanks? They didn't have any nasarius or ceriths so I was a little disappointed with that.

Tank looks nice. Yay! Finally got fish and inverts! Aren't you glad you didn't wait until Christmas? Turbos can eat massive amounts of hair algae and such and I think I read that once they run out they might starve. Wouldn't worry about it too much though.
