Always loved your tanks. Just curious, have you ever thought of putting in a Cassiopea jellyfish in one of your tanks? They are small, cheap, photosynthetic, usually sit on the bottom, and look cool.

What do you use as clean up crew? I know nothing about macro algae but I would assume some members of a CUC would eat the display stuff along with hair algae or whatnot, right?

I have a decent variety of smaller-sized snails in all of my tanks. Astreas, Florida Ceriths, Dwarf Ceriths, and Nassarius are my go-tos. Stay away from like huge snails, such as Mexican Turbos, urchins, emerald crabs, and possibly larger hermits. I do have some scarlet hermits and I think I've seen them munch on some macroalgae.

Oh boy, it's been awhile. Work has been keeping me insanely busy. But here are some updates:

JC&P sent me this light to try out for my UNS 5N. I think it's a lot more light than I need though for this sized-tank, so I may move it to my grow-out tank. It looks pretty nice though.
