That’s hilarious! Baby rats are cute. 

Her fat ass wouldn’t fit. 🤭

They are, Frodo is a rex baby and is currently molting and he has the cutest curly whiskers.  He's also not too sure about his new humans but he got brave after the Cheerios came out lol.  Sam is very food motivated, he was all over my hands looking for more.  I'll try to get pics up on my thread later once the phone's charged.

Look at how many times it’s wrapped around! 🤦🏻‍♀️

The gorg was under the pump by about four inches and was attached to a giant base to weigh it down.  I have no idea how it could have been sucked into there but the MP 40 was still running with the gorg wrapped around it!

I bet it will still live. Just cut it out and glue it back to a rock. 

 

When I frag a gorgonian I just cut and glue to a rock. I will grow over it soon enough.

Looks like there is some decent stuff sticking out so you should be able to salvage something.

Oh man that's crazy 😲.. hopefully it'll survive.

I pulled it out.  Some of it’s pretty chewed up but I’m going to see how it looks tomorrow before cutting on it anymore.

Oh I know lol...I have only seen the full body once since I set this tank up. I'm actually amazed at how quickly they move too..

My 56 gallon is loaded with those micro brittle stars.  They are in and under every rock, and every macro algae.  They are such a wonderful cuc!

I always just had the white ones in my other reef.  These are much bigger and prettier. 🙂

Some of my prettiest ones have red striped legs.  Some are just dark brown.

I have gobs of them, the white ones and red ones. Someone on IG posted a video of them spawning a week or so ago.

I always just had the tiny white ones, but bought some on ebay that are striped and much larger like yours. Might have been my video on IG- they spawned last week and again this afternoon - today 2 of them climbed up the frogspawn to make sure they were in the highest place 😉

If any babies show up, they are yours ... I tried to tag you in a post with video of the first spawning.
