    Frogfish's 10 --> Planaria Bloom

    So I am happy to say the GHA has subsided and is basically non existent! AND the fungia and acans are back to looking 100%; Woo Hoo! BUT I did realize along the sand bed there is a blooming population of planaria, I'm not too upset because so far, no negative effects, but as far as dealing with them, that's where the problem lies. I know a lot of people stand by coris and six lines but this is a 10, not a 50. I guess I could try a six line, but every one I've ever owned was a dick and frankly I don't want to have to fish him back out after the mess is taken care of, that is even if he goes for them. Plus I don't really want a velvet nudi cuz I wouldn't want to get rid of him 😂 I like to eradicate things naturally so I don't want to jump straight to flatworm exit unless absolutely necessary. Anyone know of a good nano flat worm muncher?

    Haha, i notice the cord for the heater was tense so it was keeping it out of the water, it has sense been moved and another suction cup added. I never mess with the sponge, I dont want to risk a drop in bacteria lol. I did clean the pipes and water return but left everything else alone 😁 Apart from that, I did rehouse my black clown goby to my established 12 with much more spots for him to perch. This was done due to him really taking a liking to perching on the acans and fungia, even after a rescape he really stuck to them. 🙂 Hopefully now they can open up again and get some food, I haven't seen their sweepers in a good month.

    Hair algae has gotten pretty bad so I'm going to take some more drastic measures, since the algae grows over every new sprout of caulerpa and has turned the once really pretty bush of dragon's breath brown, I will be pulling all macro and running carbon for a while to try and combat the gha. The majority of the corals are doing really well, the only issue is my black clown goby constantly perches on my acans and plate and they haven't opened fully in 2 + weeks so I'm hoping a re-scape should help and maybe he'll find a new spot, it's definately a rough patch but it's not awful.. just a hiccup 😙

    OK so here is a photo dump, W/C was done yesterday along with trimming some of the macro and cleaning up the chaeto... + some dosing (I will be getting a new herd of snails to deal with the GHA before it gets out of hand Green Fungia Acans Out of place FTS... the ions bottle wanted to be in the pic i guess. PS. Please excuse the wire/chaeto tupperware, water marks and algae, I just wanted to get an FTS out and didn't really notice Bleached asf dragon's breath... it grows well but I dont know how or why. Will be moved to lower light Ric garden Big blue disco I've had for 2 years, just split but this one smothers the absolute hell out of it A blurry pic of my duster... cuz I'm too lazy to get a better one Yuma I've had for about 5 months, he's grown a bit but he's pretty for sure, blue, orange with a green mouth. Toadstool that's been in all 3 of my recent tanks and his P.E is amazing in this one and so this is where he will stay. I have another one but he just finished shedding and looks kinda gross atm Small gorg frag I got from my old job, they said it was dead... it wasn't lol RFA from RAP Big ol' rhodi from the new LFS in my area... 15 bucks wasn't too bad The dendro who's spoiled as all get out. He is PHAT when fully open but again, being my lazy self, I didn't want to wait for him to fully open XD

    cincyJames' Gumball Pico

    This may be the coolest pico in existence, I have the same little gumball machine but would never in a million years think to turn it into a functioning reef tank props to you

    Ok so its been quite a while since my last update so I guess I'll write a quick overview. Tank is doing well with the macros growing fast and corals puffy and fat. Sadly the shrimp managed to flip himself out of the tank and was found dead on my desk the following morning. I picked up a black clown goby who is doing great and was eating the same night I brought him home. Lots of corals have been added including a huge red rhodi and a dendro which i've been looking for for a while. Still looking for some cool additions, invert and fish wise. I would like to do 3 glass or yellow striped cardinals and a small team of oddball inverts like a caribbean porcelain crab and possibly a pair of mushroom coral shrimp that is if I can find/order them. As far as corals and macros tho, I think I'm gonna stick to getting more macros b/c I'm pretty much good on coral at this point. I'm looking for codium and some scroll to round out the collection and to add some new color to the system. FTS soon!

    I know, I saw that too I guess he took the temp change pretty well but I did see he was intertidal so I guess he's used to fluctuations... If only I had the coldwater tank I want Idk what I'll do with him when he's all grown up

    OK! I found the exact species (or at least I'm fairly certain it is), it's Palaemon serratus, here's a writup http://www.marlin.ac.uk/species/detail/2033

    That's what I thought too, I'm honestly not sure. From what I've read is that regular ghost shrimp only live for a short time in pure saltwater so I think this one may be a completley different species.

    The tank is still going strong. At the LFS, they had a ghost shrimp who came in on accident with some peppermints and was doing great in saltwater, he looked like a coldwater shrimp which I liked so I snagged him up and has been in the tank for a few days and is doing great and munching on mysis like a pig! No pic ATM but he is pretty cool. This is what he looks like

    So the tank is still going strong but it's lacking in one very important department, fish and inverts! I've considered a few small oddball gobies and some glass/yellow striped cardinals and as far as inverts, maybe some small anemone shrimp (I can't stop wanting them lol) a caribbean porcelain crab and maybe, MAYBE a crinoid squat lobster. Any other ideas?
