Hi Dan, very satisfied with the 2 crabs I got. They are actually green but for some reasons, my camera is not picking the correct shade. The crabs are very active and busy in my tank but haven't found my bubble algae yet.
Emerald crabs feasting on a sheet of nori. I bought the 2 at the same time one month ago - one is already 3x larger. I might have to sell the big one - not enough algae for them in my tank. All my bubble algae are gone.
Tank is still running fine - still no sump, no skimmer.
The montipora has overtaken my tank and is covering my zoas, which has receded from lack of light. I sold the big piece cheap recently to another member here.
The sinularia has grown and I already pruned it.
My torch died (maybe stung by another coral). My frogspawn has also overgrown. My toadstool is also happy now.
My dendro has receded also and I'm nursing it right now to see if it comes back.
I have some problem with hair algae. I'll be dealing with it after I come home from vacation (that's why I have time to update this thread). I have been watching the ULM (ultra low maintenance) series and other videos on YouTube while on vacation. I got some ideas and will be rebooting my tank when I come home. It will be ULM but also low cost, spending more on corals instead.
