Love your nems. How do you keep them so bubbling? I envy that. Do you mind to share your maintenance routine? Feeding?

Beautiful tank!
I have no idea how they bubble. Lol. They were super bubbly when I got them. Thank you! So for my maintenance routine:
Scrape glass as needed.
Dump skimmer biweekly
Change filter socks 3-4 days
Feed 1-2x daily (more often 2) LRS Reef Frenzy
I use ESV B ionic mag, alk, cal, on a Jabeo doser
Instant ocean reef crystals salt at 1.026, 5-10 gal water change bi weekly depending on what the tank says it needs. I don’t actually test as often as I should, but more go off what the tank tells me (it’s been running for a while now so learning to listen to it) Gave up chasing numbers. No idea my po4 or pH since the beginning, not have I looked into them. I think a lot of success has to do with my lack of automation and more hands on approach so I always know what’s going on.
I vacuum the bare bottom into a fresh filter sock in my sump and take my time so I don’t feel rushed in removing too much water.
If any other questions, don’t hesitate!!

I got a new home for my Polletti JB in the mail today thanks to AquaRocks! Great shroom or nem holder. Packed very well and arrived super quick! The magnet is super strong! Just rinsed as a precaution and placed in the tank. Wonderful piece that just blended in. Already shopping a few more pieces to fill the back wall in where I can’t get rocks. So excited!! (Shroom a lil upset after being moved, will get new pic when fully open. Almost went on like a top instead of in its grown so much. Hahaha
