First, the barnacle cluster exceeded my expectations and is the perfect size for my aquarium, a Nuvo 16.
Now, to the crew. When I first floated the bags I thought everything looked normal. After seeing previous feedback I knew that John would plump the order up a bit. I had no idea. Once I broke the bags open I struggled to get the crew members in the bag into the aquarium before the ones already in crawled out.
In its current location my tank gets a bit of direct late afternoon sun and I was seeing the result of it. Used to. The crew attacked it with vigor and it's already gone.
Now I'm just waiting for the snail pile to dissipate so I can get the barnacle in.
