Spend some time observing the SW
tank today and watching the critters come out to feed.
Monday eve was watching for borgains and special online stuff, and the last 2 nights also have been reading about SW
critter / coral - what different kinds are interested in feeding on. Toxicity of some varieties, and that there are more widely available types of caorals being offered and kept more frequently. Also reviewing a few more critters as possible tank mates when I do the little upgrade. Decided I need a few more Nassarius snails as they move around in the sand and keep it turned over and aerated.
Did email the 2 people with the big tanks I was interested in, one never reponded and the other said he was at work and would get back to me with the info - exact size of the tank last by night and never did. Sooooooo....... nothing on that front.
Found out that the Petsmart store has Neons on sale till the 30th for a buck each.
I'd like to try again for a new batch to go into QT next week on their delivery day just buy the whole bag of them if I can. One less adjustment for the fish to just hop straight into my QT. I am kinda getting to know the girl who works in there and will see if they come in a bag of say 100 (nope) or 50 (yes).
The ones in the tank (of that store) today didn't look very healthy.
Also will have a couple weeks then to see what to do with the two big fish that might be the Neon eaters.
Planning to buy a new batch of pods
and green water /phytoplankton for the SW
tank this next week (none available near where I live).
Only have so much money and so many more plans than that, lol. We shall see which deals pop up first.
Really need to do some rescaping on several tanks this next month or so. The fish and shrimp seem fine with the jumbled overgrown messes.
