First step is done for building stands.

Step one) Clean Shop

Step 2-? ) Plan and build stands


I just can't work in a messy shop and it was a wreck.

Got a couple surprises scheduled for today.

Early morning tank check showed the largest mini carpet trying to escape from the bubble coral. This thing is brutal. Anyone need a basketball bubble? Moved the rock around and some sand.

Sorry kids. Super anti-climactic update. I bought a few we pick them RFAs from TSA. The water was cloudy when I initially placed them and now they have sucked themselves down into the sand looking to root their foot so pictures aren't great.

Five minutes after setting them.

Hopefully they settle in overnight. Both look to have nice promise.

Two separate sightings of the stomatella in my tank for reference.

Ummm does it have a shell at all or is it completely soft and squishy like a slug
No shell, slug like but flat. The coloration / camo on the back makes me think it doesn't come with a shell.
