Been gone out of town, got back late added water to several tanks from evap.

They had been fed before I got home. Found lots of algae growing in the plants of the 12G Edge. Might start adding some ferts and might do a dip with Hydrogen Peroxide. Last time I tried that I completely melted a nice red Lotus, oopsy got the % messed up and then forgot about it and wound up with a little bag of mush.

Also need to get some new ceramic rings and do the FX-5 filter clean in the next couple days and vac the 72G. Need more Prime! AGAIN! The store has been out of the larger bottle and just has the small ones lately which I can use up in a month.

Well didn't have the occasion to see anything awesome out in the travels - from any lfs

Except I got some cool plants that were in the sand/waters tide of the ocean it seems to be some sort of vining salt & sand loving Morning Glory. I got a pic and grabbed a handfull of the leave/seed things, just in case they will grow in the SW Macroalgae Vase...???

EDIT found it thank you google wikipedia
Ipomoea pes-caprae, also known as bayhops, beach morning glory or goat's foot.

Some cool sea shells and a little sea shell sand. Love the Beach.

Lots happening for the week but need to do maintenance on the tanks too. Glad to be back.

Filled the evap gap. Added all the necessary stuff. And added an antibiotic after taking the cartridges out for THIS guy.
He is all that is left in my tank except Gary, my snail, and Stanley & crew, my catfish. I have to clear up this long standing infection before I add new fish. I can't wait to show you when that happens!

Well went to the big box store today, for the new cat, checked out the SW and low and behold......find a HUGE clump of macro algae of what I think is red/green rhodophyta, or something similar to it. All for the low price of $2.13 Normally a clump that size would cost me $20-$30 at the LFS
Good steal, maybe I should check there more often

I got some Gracilaria its red and there are often bunches of it available at the big box store with the slightly shorter name which has SW "pets".

this week was a strange one evaporation was almost 3x of whats normal.
guess the fire place sucked it up . I found another awesome sponge bush it's almost 6 inch tall and 6 inch wide , now I have 1 blackish and white 1 all white and 1 orange
This sponge is fascinating just how it grows , I do need to keep it groomed or it will spread like wild fire .

I found a brand new baby rabbit snail! They are so cute!

We're adding an air stone back to the big tank. I attached the air line to the stone, put the stone in the tank, and the siphon started before I had a chance to get the check valve on. Wrong order!

Seaweed - Pics of the sponge please!

Moved the SW nano light over to the corner of the tank early afternoon, as the Fancy Rock Flower Anemone was in the corner all closed up.

It moved while I was away and I couldn't find it when I got back. The Chaeto is everywhere and rocks so I didn't worry, figuring it could be under the big RFA like at the beginning, but I didn't see it there after it really opened up big so I admit it concerned me.

Then last night, right at tank lights out, I saw it opened in the corner but today closed like it was not doing well. About 6 hours later now, it is full open and looks okay. But it is still in a bad spot which really doesnt get much light.

I also fed the tank some tiny powdered foods yesterday and it looks good, it is pwc time for the tank too which is the order of things to make sure the powdered food doesn't foul the water and need to add more fresh water due to evaporation.

Tomorrow I will likely pick up the new bottle of Prime, so I can really get to the PWC's and filter clean out for the 72G.

Oh MY GOODNESS!!!

I just went over to check out my fancy RFA to see how it was doing, and in the Chaeto next to it is a BABY RFA not a new born kind but a 1/4 inch, that may well be why it was not spreading out all the way, and now I am hoping there could be more!?!?!

Pic soon, and couldn't get it to load right now!
