Morbid curiosity caused me to google "wedding crocs", and the internet did not disappoint. All hope for humanity is lost....

I will not own a pair. Dislike everything about them and never tried a pair on. Hahaha. I hate that people just wear them everywhere, it is mind blowing to say the least….

I had a pair for work during the pandemic because they were easy to sanitize (I was a medical provider). Beyond that, I am in complete agreement. Seeing them on everyone everywhere is the movie Idiocracy come to fruition.

wore em as a cook. would run them through the dishwasher regularly to clean them off.
Speaking of "cleaning off". We need to schedule a time for you to come clean off my frag rack, buddy. I need to make room for the incoming. I have like 9 corals for you.

I use them when I go out to the hot tub in the winter and that is it. They are easy to slip on and waterproof. I wouldn’t go in public with them lol

Greetings, Heathens!

I hope your respective Fridays are going better than expected.

Today's project was to add additional lighting to the mangrove fuge. As you can see in the picture, my mangroves have filled out considerably, and as such, it is difficult for light to penetrate the canopy:

Now, I had already added some cheap, full-spectrum light bars to what can be considered the midpoint to assist the younger trees in growing. They, too have grown and filled out. This is now blocking light from reaching below into the tank, and is shading and subsequently hindering the growth of the cualerpa and soft corals that I have in there.

So, I got another cheap clamp-on grow light from Amazon, disassembled it, and fabricated a new mount out of cable sleeving and some wall anchors to blend in with the current setup. Excuse the bad pictures:

Now that there is a good amount of light down there, it got me thinking: why can't I use this as a mantis habitat and have a little "murderbug" of my very own?!

I have two considerations here, and want to solicit opinions / advice from the collective:

1) This is a 20b and the glass is fairly thin. Do you guys think it can punch / poke its way through? I would be going with a Wennerae.

2) This fuge also doubles as a remote DSB. Do you think by burrowing and disturbing the sandbed, it would pose any problems with the DT? My thoughts are that it won't, because any gas that escapes (think Hydrogen Sulfide) would dissipate from the remote tank instead of making it over to the display.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? Should I maybe pose this question to reef chat?
your gonna need a bigger house with tall ceilings..lol

Something can definitely get worked out. next two weekends are free.
Also, the two male Anthias are starting to fight with each other now. One of the females got caught up in a scuffle and now she has popeye. I'm thinking the 3rd or the 9th would work on my end.

I have conferred with the Heathen High Council, and we are unanimous in our demand for an offering of pictures!!
