Thank goodness! I extra taped the box so the PO wouldn't have a bunch of rocks flying through the equipment, hahahaha. (It's happened before )

Of course they look better in water !

Oh, it does seem that one rock and shards were a casualty, but now you get to see what it looks like inside. Oopsy.

A couple of things. Pretty sure the newest RFA is a gonner.

Part 2 of the saga is a strange blob is on the glass corner but in a odd spot next to a rock and a little feather duster and obscured by the macroalgae Codium. So it looks like it could maybe, possibly be a small RFA. The size of a dime. But I really can not see the top very well it looks light reddish / didn't really have any glowing in the actnic light that I could see but can't see the top other than the edge as mentioned.

Shopped online for some different substrate for the new SW 12G and checked out some shrimp substrate, still can't decide. A long while back for the SW I got a 20# bag of Hawaiian Black sand but was still considering keeping the pinkish Garnet sand, but there is some nice white sea shell sand too, lol!

Each option has at least one really good plus and at least one negative. Making the decision process even harder.

On to the FW side of things. I think that the 12G Edge tank is going to get a good tear down cleaning. It has a healthy stock of algae presently and I had the upper hand before I went on vacation then found out the light was left on a couple days over night. It has been growing in every plant but the Crypt Balansae in little billows. An ugly mess. Have to decide which tank that those fish will be moved to.

Our fry are getting adventurous enough to swim more deeply and broadly than just pretending to be bubbles and hiding in plants. My plants are still diminishing. I will be getting a light for Christmas....

I want more mosses. So many mosses! They look so great on the trees.
