Okay, enough messing around with an emergency tank keeping my livestock out of danger while my paramaters drop and return to "normal" Which it finally has. Ammonia Dropped to 0 Nitrites almost dropped to 0 and Nitrates is very low too. Good good good.

I am going through the whole diatom algae bloom once more, but all said and done, it seems to have pulled through.

Just my pulsating xenia and my stomatella that faced extinction. Let us say some valuable lessons learned here.

Anyway. I have a 10 gallon tank! Woot! I need to upgrade my lights at some point...I want more live rock. (I can do that in a bucket or that 5 gallon once I fix the leak.

So I will get pictures soon.

I am running two filters. One is a penguin mini with biowheel and sachets of carbon, zeolite and clearmax. The other is filled with that plant stuff and I saw one baby stomatella in it.

I got exactly two pounds of live rock. It's a large rock that actually has star polyps as a hitch hiker. So it came with the rock. :D I've seen a brittle star and a stomatella with it.

I love this peice of live rock. It has Huge purple feather dusters, some sort of clam like mollusc, a tiny sea star (put into my filter) I'd like to get another 2 or 3lb of live rock.

Green Star Polyps are spreading nicely.


My new puky guts up shrooms. I need more light.

I have a rather large pink tipped bristle-worm thing in one of the rocks. It kinda surprised me when I saw it. About as round as a night crawler. Um....suggestions? they are beneficial are they not?
