Not so long ago Duncan was a single polyp. Getting some great growth now.

Rastas look really hot now, started with 3 polyps

So glad I tried gluing GSP to the wall. It's really taking off now the GHA has gone

Just watched a bumblebee snail munching a zoa polyp.. slow motion horror. I watched to confirm.

 

Then moved all 3 to the rear chamber, rule of Grimes, if there's even a chance... Your out .. if you did it, you suffer in the rear chamber getting to see forever what you could have had 🖕🏼

Isn’t that because they are hungry and there isn’t enough scrap for them to eat?

Some people don't consider bumblebees reef safe.  IDK, I always thought that was because they are carnivorous and eat other beneficial fauna.  They've recently gained popularity as possible predators of vermetid snails.

Nope it's a well fed tank (too well if you ask my Hanna tester). It seems once they have a taste for something then they go for it

Get some kent's phyto and dose liberally (I do about 3ml every other in a 25) at night after you get your P04 back up, should keep things from bottoming out again (or at least its' seemingly worked for me).

The little piece of Monti I broke off and glued to the rock is really taking off, can't see any of the epoxy already and it's encrusting well

So if youre concerned about your nutrients bottoming out, you definitely could consider feeding a day or two more each week, or maybe consider cutting back on vibrant dosing gradually (if the algae issue is resolved- sorry i haven't read back the whole way) since that is a bacteria that will bring nutrients down. 

so exciting to see things starting to grow! if things are looking good and youre not dealing with any problems, i'd say thats a better indicator than any testing number 🙂 

 

Ive got a few bumblebee snails that have gone to town on my vermitid snails. So far they've avoided all my corals. i actually had a ton of asterina stars that were eating my zoas. its amazing how intricate (and flexible) our little food chains can be. sorry about the rasta that was eaten!
