Did 2 back to back 1G pwc to get the bowl to 0 ammonia. There is at least 2G of water in the Turtle bowl.

So now will check in a few days to see how much the ammonia goes up.

All shrimp and fish acclimated and in their new habitats.

Have not found any dead new shrimp yet and the fish are doing great so far.

Spent some time removing the Chaetomorpha MacroAlgae from the 12G SW nano with nothing in it yet (except the snails which also seem to be eating well, algae is mostly gone from the rock!!!)

I rinsed it to remove dusty like and mucky particulate matter that gets caught in it.

There was a full on Gallon pitcher of the stuff. Weighed it just for fun and it weights almost 9 ounces.

Moved the rock around a little bit and it looks decent for now.


Added a few pics of the new tank evolution to it's album here is another pic of the start...
Here it was in early March


Trying to figure out what to move next and it is a hard decision after trying to move some Codium Macro Algae. It is called Dead Man's Fingers (shudder) and I read alot of stuff today one thing being that it is one cell, don't know if that is true or how that could be?! Strange stuff in the sea world.

We bought some new furcata rainbows today! Little babies $4 each! The adults were $8. I was planning on getting three but got five instead. Unfortunately, one is currently swimming upside down, so we'll probably have to exchange her.

My in-laws got to observe a water change. I've got a system to take care of all three tanks pretty smoothly. My father-in-law has been just sitting in front of the community tank amazed at every little thing. "That snail just took out the thermometer! What is he eating? Do they always do that?" It's pretty funny.

ouch for the online order, lol!

I love the Coral Banded Shrimp, I just stopped and watched them in a tank at the lfs the other day. Unfortunately not my size critter, lol! As you say like a big - softball size wow, like a prehistoric creature.

Speaking of that the lfs also had a wierd shaped rock in the snail tank... but it wasn't a rock it was a prehistoric looking, little bigger than a baseball sized Decorator Crab!

So as for the NEW SW project I was just going to move all the stuff from the 6.6G over into it.

But I chickened out at first and then after watching all the micro goings on in the 6.6G I had a pause and didn't want to tear up anything just yet.

Starting out slowly will be adding a few things here and there I guess.





Added a bunch of the little Dwarf Brittle Stars to the macroalgae tank and did a 50% pwc on it.

Pwc on the 6.6G SW nano and cleaned the sponge prefilter. Found 2 Dwarf Brittle Stars inside of the sponge hole alive and a couple bodies of ones that died.

There were about 15-20 probably and many more in the Live Rock.

Watched a bunch of micro critters with the magnifying glass in the shrimp tank. Interesting, was just looking for the baby shrimp.
