the blenny made a den under this rock. I didn’t know they would do that sort of thing. He always slept in a barnacle cluster

Looks great!! So glad it recovered. I was nervous about fragging it right before shipping.

It's an Octospawn which is just a gimmicky name for a Frogspawn with more bubbles on its tentacles. All Octospawn are Frogspawn but not all Frogspawn are Octospawn. o_O

I put in another order with reef cleaners. I’ve only ever talked to John so I don’t know if anyone else works there but he is the man. He has a great variety of critters that I’ve never seen local. Like the pitho crab...never heard of it. They are said to possibly eat bubble algae so heck yes, add two to my cart. I’m also getting 4 emerald crabs because my observation tank is nearly just one big blob of bubble algae; It’s really ridiculous. I’m hoping these bad boys can at least take it down quite a few notches from dramatic infestation.
Im also getting more marginella snails. I got three in my last order and now I have like 20 of them in all sizes! Its fascinating, I’ve not found any information on the reproduction cycle. John said that they don’t typically breed successfully in aquaria bc the larval stage? is quite long and they end up getting eaten. I’m pretty pumped that mine are breeding so I’m going to add more and see what I can see. I’ve found weird egg sacks (I think) attached to my pectinia and rocks just beneath the sand line, no idea what else they could be. I don’t have any other baby snails so it must be them!
In other news, I am thinking about moving tiny hippo to the main display. I’m hoping wrassehole doesn’t throw a fit;Bored
