Alright,

The S-400 did sell and it was drove out of state last weekend. Hope all three buyers are happy with their items.

We always had a roll top desk before the S-400 was bought and a Red Sea 130 set on the top. The top’s wood was toast while the 130 was on it. Then when we moved in the garage a big bottle of Seachem Fusion 2 leaked all over the top.

Worked on the top as best as I could, and turned out pretty good.

lol
Stained the top with red wine and let some dirt grid in with it.
Then used Howards Wax and Feed.

So, now it’s back in it’s place, where the S-400 stood

Some shots for perspective:

For now let’s leave this post be, before going into the reefer nano

The old build link is still in the below signature and thanks for tagging along

Took the time to contact EchoTech, he said the 120 would dial in

Got to admit that the 120 skimmer does the job

Bout 5 days worth of skimmate

Been feeding corals reef chili, once a week

Also tagging along Freddie!
Glad to see you staying in the hobby, enjoy the new experience my friend :)

Perry,
Are these vermetid snails?

They look like it Freddie, I have them in the S650 but to be honest I haven’t noticed any problems and it’s infested with them!

Shaun,
Thanks for the support.

Just re-dipped the few corals that are in the reef and ordered 20 Bumblebee snails from Reef Cleaners.

lol
Freaking out, never dealt with vermetid snails in the past… :anguished-face:

Could be, hard to tell from the picture, but I have them, and Bumblebee Snails, but not sure if they are going for the vermitids or not, lol. Otherwise, they seem to be in check, so as long as they aren't popping up everywhere, I guess they could be working, lol :)

They almost look a little like pineapple sponges to me.

Was thinking the same thing

Could be, and sure looks that’s one, in the top shot.
I’m close to ending the diatom / silicate stage as well.

Question:
Is the tube on a vermetid hard, or can they retract their outer tube?

While re-dipping that coral, pulled one off with tweezers (kinda stretched then it pulled off) but the other one pulled back within the polyps.

Tube is hard. At most there may be a very minimal portion of the worm sticking out.
