So just did hours of a live sale. So exciting I'm going to be in trouble tomorrow. Here's the first corals so far...
Stay tuned for tomorrow!
Yes. I'm trying to find out what the orange mushroom is so I know if I can place close together or not. But I think the color matches well. Will be great to add.It’s a great predicament to be in haha. Corals look great, are they a mushroom and ricordea?
I’ve not got them yet, just waiting to find the right ones
Let the fun begin, oh plus the nagging from the other half haha.
I was refunded £20 from a fish store yesterday as they had a free shipping offer on but mistakenly charged me the £20. They said add something from their site so I chose a Red Dwarf Holly Favite.
Oh I bought another fish as I’ve been after this fish for approx a month and they sell out so quickly.

What fish did you get?
So took gf into the lfs. Ended up walking out with pulsing Xena. Guess it will go on the clove zoa rock. Here's to 3 invasive corals.
Well upon further inspection the Xenia has a small apistaia on it. So it's in a cup hopefully I can get it scraped off and glue the Xenia to the rick. They are attached to a candy cane coral also. I am about to get glue and try to move everything into the tank and it survive a night in a cup. Ugh.
Yeah I will try to.glue over thspot the apista was on.ugh I should have not got any at that lfs. But the bangai cardinal is doing well
Yes I will not be getting corals from that store again. Hopefully I got it all off and glued the spot well. Now to find a lower flow spot for these Xenia to be able to pulse some. Have a new controller for the wave makers coming today will turn flow down a little when it arrives
Yes I'm hoping to have the Xenia grow up the glass. I'm probably going to move it to the back corner though. Idk I have to place the new corals and go from there. I need some orange and yellow lenses for pictures.The dreaded blue photos, its such a pain. I've started taking pics through some orange lensed glasses i have haha.
Looking good, did you want the xenia to spread up the glass too? If not just keep an eye on it and scrape it off.
Some have electric green GSP growing on their back wall that can look lovely.
Hello my name is Ryan and I am a coral addict. So ended up getting more corals this weekend. Happy father's day to me.
How long does it take for those too grow? They are always so small at first.
Most will grow pretty slowly. Besides the cloves Xenia and zoa's grow pretty quickly. My mushrooms are expanding over the plug in a week but will probably take months to actually get sizably bigger.How long does it take for those too grow? They are always so small at first.
Corals arrived. Also have a new setup of cleaners in. Alot of the snails are still hiding. Hopefully in the morning they are moving and at work. All the corals look great. Cloves aren't open yet but they want to so a good day
I haven't seen my nassarius for a few days I'll check now that lights are out
I didn't want a large cuc so none die hopefully. So I'm buying them as my algea stages come. Now is sand Diatoms and rock. Once sand is clear I'll add a couple more rock cleaners. Then onto hair algea crew.I got my CUC from reefcleaners as well and I chose the snails only pack for a 75g. I got over 110 snails! But, some of them are really tiny and some big ones.
For Nassarius snails, they typically come out when you feed the tank.
My snails have been doing fine for 2 months with no losses thankfully. Your plan for stocking CUC is much safer and smarter though!Yea I haven't seen my nassarius. He usually only comes out at night. I don't have much food make it to the sand especially when the pumps turn back on it is picked off the sand.

I'm going into this with alot of research. I researched every aspect of the tank. Started with rock substrate water. Then learned sumps filtration and lights. Next was cycle clean up crew fish and corals. I am not afraid of research lol. My only thing I did wrong even though I have the copper and copper checker was qt fishMy snails have been doing fine for 2 months with no losses thankfully.
