    You should throw a few nems off in there. Carpets would be nice.

    If you plan a trip up here to see frankc then pm me. I'll throw whatever dragons breath algae your way that I have at the time. One of my favorites.

    I would love an anemone but I want to keep the water fairly "dirty" to keep the plants happy and I don't think anemones would like that.

    The tank was cloudy this morning which was weird but I thought it was just a bacterial bloom. Came home tonight to find that one of my caulerpas went sexual and melted last night. I'm guessing that the cloudy water was either caulerpa spores or a bacterial bloom caused by the festivities. Luckily, nothing else in the tank seemed bothered by the festivies. (The red X was where the red mushroom used to live before it decided that it wanted more shade.)

    Get a crispa, they’re host anemones and pretty tolerant of dirty water. :-)

    Pics of the box of water from today:

    Some things have been trimmed and some plants grew a ton. I think I will be pruning back the caulerpas (3 varieties) soon so cuttings will be available if anyone wants some. I added 3 peppermint shrimp (one disappeared) and a four nassarius snails (one died the next day and I had a massive nutrient spike a few days later, hence all the green rocks, so I think another one died).

    The surviving peps have become friends and roam the tank together.

    I want to add a blue anthelia (aka blue star polyps, snowflake polyps) but I'm having hard time finding some. It's similar to blue waving hand but it seems like the "petals" are shorter, like little flowers. Will also probably add some photosynthetic gorgonians soon.

    That is a beautiful little fuge. Any starfish plans? Throw a mex turbo up there on those rocks. They’ll be white in a week. We’ll if your nutrients are back in check that is.
