What all did you get, I’ve been looking at them for awhile now.
I did the 9 item mix and match, which was probably a bit of a stretch, in my system. I got the wonder mud, live sand activator, amphipod breeding system, baby bristle worms, Hawaiian Littorinid snails, micro hermits, and liquid N-reducer. They threw in the green leather toadstool. Everything was packaged great, and the communication was outstanding. I definitely received more than I was expecting, and it has made watching the tank even more fun.

I still have to play around with it, preferably after I do some tank maintenance, but I am really impressed with the Reefing Art camera lens set! It’s nice to be able to post photos that are much closer to what I am actually seeing!
Looking good!

A few observations, tonight. I believe that one of the clowns has won the battle to be Rosa, leaving her partner to be Cecil. In addition to her behavior, she is definitely larger, and her color appears to be darkening up.
As I was observing the algae on the rocks, I noticed that several of the amphipods that I had put in the sump, have made their way into the DT. It’s so amazing, how life finds a way. I feel so lucky to be able to watch it, in this glass box in my home.
I am ready to add something to the tank, soon. The question is whether it will be a fish, or clean up crew members. I’m still doing a lot of research, but should make a decision in the next few days.

Almost out of nowhere, the new tank uglies that I thought were coming earlier, are here. Most of my rock is covered in a light green algae, and I have brown diatoms on the sand. I think I should consider adding CUC, because I don’t know how much my cool, little IPSF critters are doing to impact it.
I did a lot of maintenance, today. I cleaned both powerheads, the skimmer, and did a water change. This was also the first time I had to scrape the glass.
