Definitely the orange plate. Beautiful coral. Thanks for the ID! How easy are these to keep?
One out of three for me so far. I don't think they are meant to be difficult, but I imagine they appreciate a stable tank and clean sand bed.

I love my conch too! However my love at the moment is "camo crab" i am hounstly unsure of the exact species. Its a hitchhikers from TBS i believe pitho crab?

He eats algea very bery slowly, sometimes i try to suck him up with a turky basker thinking its a clump of hair algea.

Wow, that's a fantastic picture! 4 baby chitons on one snail? How many of those do you have in your tank?

Have a bunch now and no idea where they came from.
Never saw a single one for first 2 years or so then, one day, saw one,,, now I have a bunch.
*must've survived a coral dip at some point but seems like I have 2 different types so kinda strange -- anyway, I like 'em

Newly added top shells have found the back glass algae problem and have set about demolishing it. Hope they find that rock just in front of it soon as well. Work harder !!!!! :)

Please excuse the Duncans for not wanting to participate :)
