Update on CUC! The conch is doing a great job, and he is always @ work 24/7 (at least 24/3, :lol: ) The shrimp- he is a :ninja: ! He does 360's and will crawl along, and flip upside down! He hid yesterday, but came out at night... @ 4 today, I was blasting some LR with my turkey baster, and he smelt food! He came rushing out in true shrimp style and started eating away... while I was doing a top off, I decided to move my conch to the other side of the tank- mondo debris over there! When I went to reach in, who comes out but my shrimp, and climbs up my arm and starts cleaning away... It scared the s##t out of me! Well, long story short, he is my new best friend, and is out all the time! He even approaches me now when I look at the tank! Amazing what food does! :D

 

Oh, one quick question- my pura pad (chemical media) can I rinse it out in the sink, dry, then put back in w/o it leeching stuff back? It gets dirty and blocks flow...

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the compliments! :D

Yes, I like that pic too- I submitted it to the editor of TFH for their new nanobook. Yes, they are feather dusters- when he was out in the air I was gonna pull them off, but I am glad I didn't!

Yup, it's a star fish.. I think needreefunds id'd it.

Thanks... I guess.. :lol: I don't have any other shells, except for the turbos/ ceriths... THEY BETTER NOT KILL THEM! They are smaller than the snails (planned it that way) so it should be ok.. I hope :P

you have to watch out for those asterina stars. there are a bunch of different kinds, but one in [articular will eat zoanthids. I had bad luck, and got the ones that do.. Every time I found one, i would take em out to my balcony, and throw them in the snow... Stupid stars...

Ok, I took some yesturday, so I will post some soon. As for the saltwater world- it's awesome! I was training my shrimp to take flakes today, and I've been training him to come see me when I approach the tank and climb on my hand :happy: Hopefully I can try my hand at coral soon!

Those stars are cool, I bought a big zoo colony at the lfs and it had about a dozen of those things on it. They are hard to spot they blend into liverock really well.

You just have to watch, (I dk how true it is/ if I/ we have the same type)but someone said on pg. 8 that they eat zoas! Just watch out! They are cool though, a little something extra to watch! They don't move before your eyes, but tend to shift around, right? :happy:

Lol, reminds me of this Tues... I was moving a rabid (aka mindless killer) grey- this bird is down right nasty! So I position its existing cage (a temperary one 2'x2x'3') in front of it's new walk in enclosure... it wanted revenge... SO I get the female in, who is friendly, but the male wouldn't come out... so I prodded him with a stick... he was squaking and what not, but he finally comes out, and their old cage was holding the door open, so he had a clear shot... at me! So he goes to attack me! So I use a piece of wire to stop him, which he lands on and goes to bite me and continue his charge! Finally he fell off (after I fended him off with a cement perch and he waddled into his home that took 4 hours to build... ba####d End Rant :D

Family emergency, yikes, I hope all is well. And sorry about the crab. You're sure its a goner? One day I see two of my Nass snails munching away at the remains of my blue leg. Later I see my blue leg crawling from behind the rock work. Must have shed. I did loose a red leg crab. A blue leg killed it for its shell. Sux cause he was cool B) . Hang in there. BTW how is your article coming along?
