I've got a TON of hitchhikers

So here's my new little project. The ever popular 20L. I'd been looking high & low for the best rock that I could find. All over the internet....bugging everyone here. Well, I finally went and looked at what the LFS had, and look what I found to my surprise.

I guess the rock came from Florida were it was aquacultured somewere. None of the purple coraline has died off, and I continue to find new things every day. The rock has been in the tank for 2 weeks and was sitting in the LFS for 2 weeks as well.

 

Things found:

3 Cucumbers - unknown type

7 clams

 

 

The tank

20 Gallon Long

20 lbs Seachem Kona Coast Aragonite Sand

18 lbs of Floirda Reef Rock

3 lbs Carib Sea Aragonite Reef Sand (leftover from Nano)

Aqua Clear 50 Powerhead

Aqua Clear 70 Powerfilter

150w Metal Halide

 

1 Mexican Turbo Snail

3 Astrae Snails

3 Nassarius Snail

1 Scarlet Leg Crab

6 Electric Blue Crab

20 Mexican Red Leg Hermit

 

Fluorescent green Horn Coral - Hydnophora

Candy Cane Coral

Montastrea

Leather Coral

Purple Mushrooms

I don't think I'm going to put a skimmer on at the moment. Right now the only thing I'm using to filter is Renew by Seachem. Nothing else, and my water seems to be prety clear with very little particles floating around. I'm pretty good about changing water every week, so I also think that helps out.

 

I was considering turning my Powerfilter into a mini-fuge, so we'll see if I need it then.

 

I was wondering about the Cucumbers. I can't tell what type they are yet. Which ones are bad?

Here's a picture update on my 20L...I can never seem to get a picture of my watchman goby, peppermint shrimp, and pistol shrimp. But here's what I have so far.

 

The tank is 4 months old I believe
