Sooo, tonight I added a tiny left handed hermit since the tiny blue leg I bought was actually a tiny cerith:rolleyes: 

 

I also made quite a few changes :ninja: pics tomorrow if the tank doesn’t crash overnight DBBE1325-79EB-45A5-8924-45B664190FA5.thumb.jpeg.46378f309b71d1ea815878d4dff8dae1.jpeg

So, while waiting to do the tank transfer for the fishies for my other tank, I decided to spice things up in the pico. It was too overgrown with algae and there isn’t a great variety of coral. With my trusty bone cutters, I made baby frags of several corals including zoos, a rodactis, blastos, and cyphastrea, as well as moving two little gorgs that have been stung like mad by my Japanese leather and never have polyps out. So far they all seem good!  One clump of zoas has yet to open fully, but I poured straight peroxide on it last night for bubble algae so I’m not too surprised. 

 

Excuse the poor quality pics!

Glad to see you back around! I've wondered how the pico was doing.  I LOVE the pom pom, they are so fun, probably my favorite inverts. I hope the sexies behave themselves, you may need to feed them.

I’m glad to be back!  The Pom Pom is insanely cool, I’ve wanted one ever since I set up my biocube! I’ve decided to name her Regina George since she makes me think of mean girls. And the left handed hermit shall be Gretchen Weiner.   I’ve been chucking in a bit of frozen every time I feed the main reef, and I have some PE pellets that my fish won’t touch that I’m using for the pot.

The burning question now is... does she wear pink on Wednesdays?!?

Soooo all the corals were closed when I got home from ultimate frisbee. Not good. Inverts are a-ok. I’m almost wondering if there’s a bit of ammonia or something?  I’ve never really fed the pico and now it’s had several small feedings in a week. 

 

Anyways, I abstained from food tonight and did a 75% water change. Fingers crossed that does the trick! 🤞

The coral still seemed a little peeved tonight...now I think I know what did it. While adding the new coral, I decided to move my Japanese leather backwards and tore it from the rock. Leather nasties in the water. I did another water change tonight. None of the corals are closed enough that I’m worried, just a little irritated

The corals may have been peeved at the shrimp trampling over it.  Mine like to explore the corals and dance on everything which really upsets the corals.

I think you may be right!  More than once now I’ve seen a happy open coral, and a minute later a sexy lands on it 🙄. Things looked a lot better today!

Sooooo I’m glad I looked in the pico tonight. The LPS were peeved and it didn’t take long to figure out why!  The Japanese leather melted into nothing. The pot smelled awful!  But in less than 5 minutes a 90% wc was done and hopefully things are back on track. Inverts seem ok as far as I can see

Hoping your pico has a quick recovery!

 

And wow, it's hard finding pom poms with BOTH nems.  LOL.  I've been looking all over.

 Thank you, I’m hoping there’s no further damage when I get home today!

 

And lol I got lucky, mine was the last in the store!  I expected no poms.

The sexies and pom pom are so cute.  They are perfect choices for your tiny coffee pot pico.  I would think they have added a lot of interest and fun to your pico, without adding much more work.

 I’m 100% in love with them :wub:  So far I haven’t had to feed too much either, which is great
