The neme will be first. Wait for him to find his home. Then the others.
Another month of perfect params and I will consider the neme. I can't believe how stable everything is so far. Even had my neighbor test for peace of mind!

Just keeping your hands out of the tank makes a big difference I think. I don't "fiddle". Either at, or the bi weekly water changes are doing it.

Ha I can't keep mine out of the tank. I'm coming up on 1 week from a massive system change like adding my sump. I'll be testing the water soon to see where I'm at.

halfmoon do you know how much your ph swings in a day, that can cause problems for the nem as well. it should be highest when you turn lights out, and lowest right before you turn them back on.

My ph stays a solid 8.2 in the mornings to 8.3 at night. (I have aragonite underneath a sand bed)
Temperature is a constant 77 degrees (just like my house)
Amm, trite, trate are 0, no phosphates.
I have NOT tested, calk, alk, mag or strontium since I don't have corals, but am picking up those tests soon.
I am making dead sure everything is stable and pristine before moving on with nemes and corals.
I have my eye on a PLTA at LFS. The owner is holding it for me. It eats well, farmable coloring, hasn't moved in weeks, and never shows oral disk issues.
