So everything seems to be progressing nicely. I'm currently experiencing a brown algae/diatom bloom so I've started to add a CUC. I have 3 scarlet reef hermits, 2 dwarf blue-legged hermits, 6 astrea snails, 2 nassarius snails, 1 fighting conch, 1 emerald crab (started to get bubble algae) and a peppermint shrimp (aiptasia control). I also have a couple ricordea mushrooms that I was lucky to get as a freebie from the LFS
. Anyway, I was just wondering if I should be feeding the tank anything. I know most of these guys are scavengers and will eat algae and detritus. But should I be supplementing them with anything else? Do I need to feed the ricordea mushrooms anything? I've read various things from not feeding them to giving them frozen mysid shrimp. I was just wondering what everyone's opinion and experiences are. Thanks for the help!
Oh yeah, has anyone experienced emerald crabs eating feather dusters? It's too bad because I liked those little filter feeders. But the emerald just pretty much consumed all of them. He also devoured the caulerpa that I had growing in the tank.
