Lol for my snails I picked them out and placed them in a plastic container with tank water in it. Then I floated the container in my tank with multiple snails in it. Lol they cleaned each other off

Lol, good idea! I see them hitchhiking all the time, but not for very long.

Every day I think about an upgrade!

Lots of additions to report. My fallow period ended the first week of August and I had a pair of clowns in the 20 for a few weeks of observation. Once I was happy that they were relatively healthy, I moved them over.



Then Rich and I headed out to Ryanericksons for one of our little coral adventures and shopping spree's.

Tri-coloured Nana



Blue/green Cyphastria



Sunset Monti



In the above pic you can see the RR Wolverine at the top. Encrustation is good, however I have been having a hard time getting all the corals to colour up.
Knowing that I needed to start dosing Amino's, I thought I'd start with the cheapest products, so I picked up some RedSea Energy and dosed for a couple weeks.
Didn't really notice any change. In the end, once the bottles ran out, I bought some Zeo AA.
Under the AA you can see my fancy dosing schedule. Still a huge learning curve for me. Considering adding some T5's.



Picked up a wicked Rainbow Monti from CanuckGod604.



Once again, cell photos do no justice. I'll finish off with a side FTS.



Thanks for looking.

Tank's looking good Warren! That suspected Bubble Algae is Bubble Algae - it comes in several different varieties. Not all Emeralds will eat it ime. If you want small fish, make sure you buy female Emeralds. Just the males get the big pincers, and they will catch small fish.

Get a spray bottle and some hydrogen perxoide from the dollar store and spray down the snail wait five minutes and put it back in the tank. that Amino acid should not be used if you have GHA it will just unlease a beast of algae on the tank.

Mindy, good to know. I'm thinking of picking up a couple more Emeralds as the bubble algae is starting to get out of hand and the one dude isn't making a dent. I'll make sure to flip the crabs and check their sex, as I am only interested in adding small fish at this point and maybe a Copperband, as the centrepiece.

Surprisingly the GHA hasn't returned in a few weeks. The Trocus snails are breeding rapidly and keeping it in check. Either way, good info, thanks!
