Have been watching 3 Blue Leg SW
Hermits in the the 6.6G Edge doing something, love tussle or fight for a shell (there are plenty in there to exchange) 2 seem to be interested in one little guy.
Then fed and watching the critters - Watching Nassarius snails pop up out of the sand for food never gets old, funny Vid on youtube - Saltwater Zombie Snails (not my tank) but much more amusing in person!!!
Last night I flipped the filter pad around in the tank and upped the filter flow moved around the Chaeto in the little hob
but didn'treally accomplish what I wanted, it was really gunky with debris and much went into the tank.
So when I have a few extra minutes I plan to turn it off and rinse it with water to get it cleaner and put it into the tank and just add floss. The Chaeto isn't getting enough light in there and isn't very dark green. The hand full in the tank is deep dark green and the nasty Bristleworms and critters keep it nice and clean.
Fed extra for the Upsidedown Catfish in the 72G since she came out to eat and turned the light down as well for her comfort. She likes to hide. (I am still looking for a local home for her with a few friends to play with).
Hoping the lfs
has some nice Clown Loaches for Loachie to hang with. He was funny. When I fed them, he sucked a pellet in his mouth and it was too big so he went off with it to a corner to munch on it away from the feeding frenzy. Then he raced back over, grabbed another and did it again.
Noticed the Double Dark Black Angels are getting some pretty color in their ventral fins lighter golden black. Maybe not a standard for color on them (not sure) but it is a very pretty contrast.
Upon further checking the small Hermit body was dead - blew on it with the Turkey baster and the body came away from the shell. :/ don't think it was a molt, maybe just a sick or weak one. Those guys are cannibals, I hear they TRY to eat each other. I got them because they were stikingly colored and after find out they want to eat each other - Uhg. Off to work on that note...
