  1. Great meeting! Thank you and Marcia for hosting. All Candy can talk about now is fish, inverts, and bacteria! That new poster is really life-like. 🙄 That should be really fun to watch it grow out. Loved all the tangs in there, but that Blenny will have to go on a diet or it will explode! Always fun, Thanks Again!

    Weird little things

    I agree they look like chiton. Maybe a third further on the upper left? Always fun to get some of the good ones as hitchhikers!

    Tank upgrade

    The only time I upgraded tanks was... a little over 16 years ago and I didn't have corals as I was just a fowlr. The move was from a 55 to my current 125. I did transfer all my sand but did "vacuum" it fairly well. I transferred the LR a portion one day at a time and then added some more. I only took one week to let the new tank settle but as I mentioned only a fowlr. I did not lose any fish and the cycle was minimal. I did not use Tim's at that time. In your case, (assuming your bed is not deep... 1-2 inches) I can see taking more time but aside from cleaning the sand without destroying the bacteria. I would definitely would use Tim's and like you are doing plan, and be patient. Good Luck, I hope it all goes well!

    WOW, Dr Fosters & Smith is closing its doors

    The acquisition was not a good fit for either company {Big Box as compared to niche company}. It's a shame for those employees and their families. I hope they come out alright.

    Mag test kits

    I recently purchased the Salifert test kit but prefer the Red Sea set up (glass curvet and holder/shaker hardware). So, I use the Salifert chemicals with the RedSea hardware. Both kits are similar in accuracy in my opinion.

  11. I have no doubt this is a quality or tolerance issue.
