They only get a few at a time. Yes reefcleaners had 7 yesterday. They usually are gone in a day or 2. I would love to try a YCG but only if I saw it eat some frozen food. Plus by the time this is over it will just depend on what the LFS has. I have purchased fish a few times on line but I want to support the locals store more and stress the fish less.

My reef cleaners order should arrive today. I did a couple test and did a small WC. Changed the floss and rinsed the carbon in preparation.

My shipment arrived, acclimated, divided the snails between the tanks and put the coral in the pico.

The flower was stuck to the plastic bag. I cut the bag all the way around the coral and sort of buried it in the sand. The flower dislodged after a couple hours and I removed the plastic bag. My photo is charging when it done I will snap a picture but it is just indirect sun light. Might even leave the lights off tonight.

That's a nice big one! I bet it'll glow a pretty green under blue lights.

Well the flower is on the move. Will it harm the ricordea? Should I move the ricordea? I put the light on for pictures because it happened. LOL

My ricordea and flowers never got along. If they tangled, then both looked terrible for a few days after.

I’ve moved all my ricordea out of the flower tank because of that.  

So I suggest moving it if you can.

Nice stuff you got.  Hope the RFA settles.  Mine took a few days but they have been model citizens since.

Based on  the comment from SeaFurn I placed the ricordea in the 20L reef. Part of me wanted to move the flower but it is attached to the glass now. My thinking was the ricordea would be better suited for the low light and low flow in the pico which is still stock light and pump. If I did move the flower it probably would have been to the out grow tank.  I am going to try this for a week and see how they do. I hated putting my hands in there again but while at it I also move the blue leg hermit in the mushroom shell to the out grow tank.

I guess I should have been more thorough in my previous post. I moved my ricordea completely out of my RFA tank because I have so many RFAs that I would have been continually moving the ricordea out of a path of a moving RFA. I just didn’t want to hassle with it.

So I didn’t mean you needed to move yours to your other tank since you only have one RFA. Sorry about that. 

 

It’s easy to get the RFA off the glass if you want. You can use a credit card and slowly wedge it under it and it will release. Or similarly, I now just use my thumbnail and give it’s foot a slow nudge and it usually releases.

The flower stayed put over night. I am going to wait and if it stays put I will return the ricordea to the pico. Still going to at least wait a couple days.

Seeing some growth on the little sunburst polyps. I made up that name. Also the pulsing xenia came back to life, I thought it was on its way out. Should have known better. The GSP doing well but really has no where to spread to.

Pulled one of these little worms out yesterday and today. I know there are more under the rock but seems to be an increase in them. I also removed a couple of the tiny white stars. I don’t mind a few but I don’t like more than a few on the rock. I never take any micro brittle stars out. Not that you actually could only ever see arms waving around.

I think you should pull the thermometer and add a background. Hide those cords, get more colors to pop!
