Some new stuff
Got some new stuff last night. Another fire shrimp. Didn't get a pic of him, but if you've seen one...... Got a flame scallop. Kymme has wanted one for a while. Also got a Sun coral. I know it has to be fed, but I figure if I'm gonna have to feed the scallop, I can feed the coral at the same time. The sun corals were added into the saltwater order by mistake...they aren't something we normally keep. Anyway, I got it here and made a small cave in the rocks for it. My rock isn't really shaped right to make a cave so it could stand some improvement. May have to look for a piece that will give it better shade. I looked this thing up before I brought it home. Low light...shaded, needs to be target fed no less than twice a week with brine shrimp, zooplankton, ect... I wonder about the frozen "invert food"? This is basically frozen plankton AFAIK. I also thought about crushing up some marine flake and feeding it that sometimes. Any info or experience anyone has with these corals would be appreciated. If what I have read was correct, when the polyps open, it is hungry and should be fed then.
Also got another clown to replace poor Bozo. I have two heaters in the sump and the plugs are secured with wire ties so there shouldn't be any more disasters with heater plugs coming loose. Here's the pics.
