The tank is suddenly having a dino outbreak and the zoas are not happy about it. I guess this is a result of trying to kill the bubble algae. Just something else to work on!

I told my children that I have too many zoas and might need to get rid of a few. Out of over 25 different ones, this is the one they said should go. My Utter Chaos! Kids don't know anything these days.

They have not been particularly fast growers, but they have come a long way since I got them.

The mushrooms have grown a lot over the last couple of months and they have all split. The two new green ones from the split are significantly larger than the original and the same is true for the hairy mushrooms. Each one of those is now about 2.5" - 3" wide.

I must be doing something wrong. One of mine split into 3 over 5 months. The others have not split.

I found this bristle worm looking around from a hole in the rock. It's probably about 3" long. They are supposed to be good for the tank, so I will leave it alone for now. I'm not so sure how I'll feel about when it starts to get big. It will probably get removed.

I am not a fan of them so I caught a few and threw them away. I still have a couple of the small ones but if I get a chance to take them out I will.

It may be because I spot feed them 3 times per week with Reef Roids. I will try to put up a video this week. I make a thick mixture and use an eyedropper to put it over the mushrooms. When it falls onto them, they close up and consume all of it.

Water cleared up two days ago. Tested ammonia .5, nitrite 0 and ph close 8. So hopefully it will drop down to zero soon.

I think I will let the cycle run by itself rather than do a water change. I do have fish needs to be picked up on Monday as my friends taking down his tank. So will sell
How is the tank coming?
