Also since the death of my mandarin :'( my pods have came back with a vengeance! On average I'd say 5-10 per square inch of sand during full daylight haha

That's hilarious! I wonder if the polyps would eventually adjust to a mobile home?

I believe there are a few crabs that put polyps on their backs and move around. Lol I was trying to buy a group of polyps once and it ended up being a crab.

Little update.. cleaned some wiring up in my sump, removed my Uv sterilizer, and set my reactor back up (been off the system since the move). Had to tear down a part of the scape to recover my fallen cup coral too which was not fun lol.

Well guys, I just realized my birthday is right around the corner (man I must be getting old haha) so what should I treat my self (or should I say my fish/reef) to? I was thinking maybe a mp10 or a reef controller. Then again I could just splurge on smaller items and get a bunch like ato system, New socks, fragging kit, etc ... So what do you guys think I should get and if you got something you think is a must have tell me why I should have it lol. I deserve to spoil myself this year

I would really like to try the mp10. There is someone selling it in the classified section for $200nib.

The ato would be more important for me though.
