Those look pretty cool! Not sure I'm cut out for that though haha. My coco worm seems to be doing great.

I have since replaced it with a flame scallop, non-electric variety sadly.
Thats why I suggested the live phytoplankton culture. Unlike the bottled variety, it can be dosed without worrying about the phosphates and nitrites if it were dead. It can be dosed at will without affecting water parameters.
