Are you feeding your duncan?  Mine gets spot fed a paste I make from reef roids and Brightwell Aquatics ZooPlanktos-S twice a week.

I usually broadcast feed marine snow now and then, reef roids a every other day, newly hatched BB or frozen a couple times a week but on occasion I do try to spot feed.

The sexy shrimp and blue leg hermit were not out begging for their breakfast this morning.  Hopefully they are molting and just hiding.  The emerald crab gave me a mighty wave, or the crab version of the finger,  so I don't think anything is really wrong.

The sexy shrimp was waiting for me this morning but I still don't see the blue leg hermit.

To cheer me up my other half treated me to a shopping spree at the lfs.  I was told to keep it under $1000.  Yeah right.  $1000 in corals wouldn't fit in the tank.  I like the $30 and under tank.  It's always has a variety of small but bright and colorful pieces.  I spent $100 and got some snails, 2 ricordea and a zoa mix.

The back tank glass is full of green hair algae.  It is ugly but I let it grow for the pods.  Last nightI took a toothbrush  to some of it and dumped big clumps into the Opae tank.  The Opae fought like mad over it and devoured it.  I am almost tempted to convert some Opae to full saltwater  to see how they would do at keeping the substrate clean.  My big concern  is that the filter creates to much water movement and that they would be blown around and injured.

 

On a positive note Redrum the blue leg hermit didn't  kill any of the new astrea snails last night.

I caught Redrum trying to pry a snail from it's shell.

1 snail is now missing so I did some research and it appears that the blue leg hermit can do just fine in brackish water and can co-exist with Opae Ula so I will be setting up an acclimation container because of the difference in salinity and banishing Redrum from the reef.
