Mine has been wandering for weeks.  I just let it do its thing now.  

Well turned up this morning and both seems to have taken a tentative hold on the underside/crags of this rock.

I think just watch them, gently baste the area and let them do their thing. I tried to lower the light level but then everything else looked terrible....... might have a shuffle around see if I can make some more shade for them. I do have that flat mushroom shelf rock and the eggcrate racks

Well the Ultra Toxic Green has turned to a brown slime (that I have removed) and a tiny Oral Disc

Lava Lamp not looking too good either

It's on a small piece of Live Rock Rubble.... don't think it will make it. 🤷‍♂️

 

But it is not too bad. Spotted a Baby Ricordea that wasn't there yesterday. Will be interesting to see which one it is

Also this strange Red Algae?

Yes and another glowing "nodule"

No real change for anything in the Pico today. The Oral Disc is "tumbleweeding" around the bare bottom with my hermit crab clacking in hot pursuit. That was rather funny. 

However I have managed to arrange a couple of trades/purchases from fellow reefers here in the UK, will see how they post Corals and I can start joining in, 

 

First is a Blue Disco, being charged £6 including postage for 1 head

Will see how this arrives and utilise the same postage method for the swaps on the below, both will receive a Green Yuma in return. As well as a couple of volunteers here later on

Wary of the colours on this due to the seller having T5's and MH

 

And this one, I hope looks at least somewhat similar

You can try putting some rubble in a shallow plastic container to see if the mushroom will reattach.  If it is being blown around it may have gone walkabout to find a place with less flow.

Those new mushrooms look so pretty. I hope your happy with them. It's great you found some reefers to trade with.

Well I popped into the LFS at lunch or tried too.

 

Shop closed due to heat issues with their tanks. Fw section was open but 🤷‍♂️.

 

Might pull a rock from the 5.5g and make some rubble myself

First posted trade arrived this morning. Good to see that my idea of posting corals works. 

 

Photo of arrival (after taking off bubble wrap) and after dipping and mounting. There was a small amount of rock rubble on the feet.

Well the sea was a little too rough, the wind picked up fast and the rain rolled in. Beautiful British Summers Day. To get to a decent rockpool was not going to happen so went for a walk along the shingle.

I thought British weather is just slow gloom and drizzles, not actual storms rolling in.

 

Dig that red macro
