Well my tanks been up for 3months now. I've noticed it "maturing" quite a bit.
In the past 2 weeks the coraline has exploded. Its expansion on the LR
is incredable, small patches are also forming the the mega-flow chambers. I've finished my school of Chromis. I picked up 3, waited 2 weeks then got 4 more. The school nicely and are smarter than I would expect. When I shut off the powerheads in preperation for feeding they go to the corner I drop the food in.
I've noticed my snail pop is dropping as my hermits grow up, I'll probobly order a new wave soon as the algae growth has increased some in repsonse to the increased feedings. So far I've found 2 patches of cerith eggs. I was quite surprised by the first batch and at first I thought something had etched the glass. I think my conch is growing, one moring he had a nearly transparent line of shell. Its looks like new growth and seems to darken each day. I recently found another rock crab, ironically he lives in the former home of the Mantis I caught a while back.
Following the new year I'm planning to order some more inhabitants. To include skunk cleaners, peppermint shrimp, a barnacle blenny, a pair of bangai cardinals, and a shroom for my first coral. I'm hoping the shroom will host a to be added pair of clowns.
