Added about 200 dwarf cerith snails. I found yet another hitchhiker crab. This one foiled my feeble attempt to simply net him. I ended up rearranging the tank again trying to find that crab...I didn't find the crab, but the tank design looks way better.
I also added about 10 large nassasrius snails, I lost 2 overnight. One didn't look so hot from shipping. But The upside is I have 8 good ones.
Since adding the rock from the gulf, I am seeing a much wider variety of life in the tank. It is quite fun watching the tank become alive. I've found some stromatella snails coming out the rock and some small bristle worms.
I found the goby's dried husk between the wall and salt container. HE jumped...
I added 2 peppermint shrimp, and then found the first one alive and well. I guess he wanted company. The overnight I lost one. So I have a count of 2. They evidently ate the glass anemone, but not the two aptasia. I'm thinking about trying a copperband butterfly fish. They are cool looking and I only have a few tube worms that popped up on my live rock.
I dunno, I'm going to wait and see. Since there are only 2 I might try Kalk.
