Ya I did read that it is a spreader. It is on its own rock but another one is leaning on it. Hmm to leave it or move it that is the question.....maybe I could glue it to the back of the tank.

I put my GSP on the sand then moved it to a rock to get it adjusted to the light and was going to move it to the wall (waited too long..a week), but it already attached. I wish I could rip it off, but I don't want to kill it. Guess I'll have to keep it on that rock...So the lesson is don't put it on a rock or something and think you can move it a little later...:/

I just got some hire star polyps yesterday, waiting for them to open fully before pics. They are so pretty.
And I hear ya on the pistol miving stuff. Went to store today, when I got back my pistol had dragged my hammer's frag plug over to the main entrance to the burrow and used it as a door!! Lol. Those guys are small but mighty!! Lol. He had to drag that thing about 5 inches or so. And then when I removed it as the door, he came running over there so see what was going on. Stuck his head out of the hole to see whats going on, looking like "WTF- i just put that there!" and then grabbed another shell and went back inside. Lol. Silly shrimp.

As promised a pic of the GSP. I know I have been warned but I don't want to move it. It fits like a glove in that spot.

Question. Does anyone else you the handy dandy turkey Baster to blast the rocks? If so what are your thoughts good or bad? I think it is good to stir up the debris so it can collect in the filter. Just curious for others thoughts.

Yup I hear ya. I try to blast them every couple of days so I don't get to much build up. Was just curious if others did the same thing. Man that turkey Baster is good for just about everything.

Quick question. I notice that the polyp heads on my hammer coral are getting smaller. Is this normal or would anyone know why? Thanks
