Looking good, my only concern with keeping alot of snails in there is mine seems to kill anything that goes in the tank even if hes not hungry. If he sees it, its dead. So just monitor his behavior and watch your nutrient levels if you go that route. Make sure hes not leaving dead ones laying around.It’s been 6 days and he is settling in super well. At first he made himself a little cave within my rock on the left but he couldn’t really make a full burrow I think so about 2 days ago he started hanging out in the PVC on the right side of the tank and has made that home base. He’s eaten 1 clam on a half shell, 2 astrea snails, and taken frozen mysis/krill from my turkey baster as well. My long term plan is to keep as many snails in there as I can and then feed him frozen every few days. I want to try and get some sort of sealed clam so he has to actually break it open, what should I look for at the market to make sure it’s safe?
All in all tank itself is doing well, most of my corals look great. My blue mushroom isn’t looking the best ever but I think it’s just too much light. Problem is that I epoxied it in place really well and I don’t think I’ll be able to get it off .
the new zoas I got at the same time as the mantis are settling in really well and are fully open normally now, I’m super pleased with how they’re doing.
