I finally ordered my first hanna checker. I ended up getting the alk for now since that is the most important. I'll end up getting the other two at a later on, but it's a start. Also my snail pack and emerald crab are in KY with a delivery date for tomorrow. It'll be nice to have the day off and get some stuff done without the wife home. Hopefully they shipped well :unsure:

Well after a long wait today I'm happy to report the shipment of snails and emerald crab came in with what looks like minimal loss. They say to let them be for a few days. The emerald crab is already going to work on the GHA 😁. Will see how much he can clean up and as a last ditch effort, I'll be trying reef flux.

My Hanna checker should be here next week so looking forward to that.

Not much kinda autopilot..just cleaning algae out every week. I'm hoping that crab starts hitting spots I can't reach. Do they take a couple days to acclimate to the new home? He's found this tiny crevice and hasn't moved since yesterday. I came home from work and he's in the same spot. I see him moving so he's not dead at least.

All the snails I got vanished so not sure what's going on there and they were tiny. A lot smaller than I thought. I saw the nassarius snails out and about last night after lights off.

I think I have quite a few snails that might be dead, not sure though.

Alrighty update...still have algae 🙄.

So I'm running out of salt and I'm about to order some live aquaria salt..anything I should be worried about? Obviously I'm not going to do a huge water change with it, probably the norm of 4 gallon WC.

Also, my emerald crab disappeared...he's most likey in a spot I can't see him so I'll give a couple days and see if he appears.

I'm thinking in the next week maybe weekend I'm going to order reef flux for the algae. I still can't pin point the issue as I've checked every box of advise I see.

Who knows. Alright carry on 😀

What kind of food do you use? I can’t remember if you’ve said.

Well I use flake food and I've gotten nori sheets. The nori is as of this weekend and I also feed mysis and rotifers. Mysis and rotifers are like every week and half and flakes are varied. Usually two days then off a day. It's only the clownfish, blenny, snails and coral.

I've never been a heavy handed feeder
