Haha I'm not that dedicated. I boiled it for about five hours last night and then soaked it in a bucket overnight, then restarted boiling this morning.

I think it's pretty much ready. Canister has purigen anyways so good to go. I just wanted to get as much out beforehand!

I soaked a piece of mopani in a bucket with hot water until it stopped staining, then boiled it (changing water every couple hours) and it hasn't stained a bit.

I tried glueing SW mushrooms to a rock,bahhahahhhahhhahhhahhahaha, well that didn't work, but I was able to glue down the sand rubble to the special rock I picked out for the blue star cloves and there will be a pic of them tomorrow. They look good and were opened up. Was pretty proud for glueing something to a rock, lol.

The Leather is doing good, and was opened up too. And the snail started moving around and the crab was hiding behind the rock so still alive. The collector urchin had the big ball of macroalgae still riding around behind him.

Angelfish pair #1 laid down a huge bunch of eggs!! Pair #2 is guarding theirs but really I think they eat them themselves.
Pics tomorrow, I think.

60 % clean on my elephant nose tank, rinsed filter's and checked impeller. Going to be adding new plant's soon, the tank doesn't look good at the moment.
Added new shrimp into my vampire tank, they're soo tiny! Thought they'd be safer in there
