Good ol clean up crew. I feel you on that one. I need to add a bunch myself. Don't have nearly enough algea munchers. Nerites are on sale at Liveaquaria right now. 0.99 a piece. Not a big snail but can put a dent in some algea when you have a bunch of them. their size allows them in to smaller hard to reach areas. They're also one of the prettier shelled snails. Anyway, just a thought.

I found a snail in my live rock that I added to the Nano tank yesterday. It looks to be either a zebra striped turbo snail or a bumble bee snail. I noticed it as I was actually looking at the tank beside it (25 gallon with daffodil cichlids)....man did that thing ever move across the bottom of the tank. It was awesome.

I should be able to add the cleanup crew into the nano this sunday....wooooo!

Stupid live rock didn't come in and I"m a very impatient person (which is horrible when cycling a tank) so I picked up 25 lbs of Premium Figi rock and added that, which only brings the total to 40lbs. Which means I have a whopping 90 lbs more to add....then wait another two weeksish for it to cycle again.... At this rate the nano will be up and running with corals and fish before the tank that I bought 3 months before I set up the nano will still be cycling.

sucked it up (was tired of waiting) and ordered 65 lbs of live fiji premium rock. Which will bring the in tank volume to 105lbs. So another 20 lbs after that and I'll have 125, which is all I really want to be in there for now anyways
