I wonder if it’s a time of year or something? They are laying them everywhere!
On Saturday I had Cerith eggs everywhere. At least three large strings of them in different places. Weird, I always get them on the glass, but these were all on the bare bottom.

Beautiful tank! Just shows you that you don't need a 300 gallon tank for it to look amazing! Great job!
Thanks, Scott!

In some ways it’s a lot easier, but in others, it’s a lot harder! I miss every large tank build I’ve had, but I’ve been happiest with this one!

The tank is still chugging along, I didn't clean the glass at all (for a long time now) so I could show everyone the baby snails that are still popping up with some quick and dirty photos from last night.

I'm starting to see some pretty intense coral warfare, so I'll have to do some trimming and probably deciding who's going to fill in prime real estate. The only thing I'm really doing these days besides feeding the clowns is an water change x2 a month, and it's a bit boring tbh.

I'm also debating cleaning up my glass floor. Some zoanthids have taken to growing out, but I think my flow is so high now that there's not a lot of real estate for them to thrive in comfortably.

Montis and stylos on the floor is the way to go. BTW loving the way this tank is looking. I joined my first reef form right before this tank was started and its amazing how far she's come.
Right now I'm rocking TSA Minions, JF Kung Pow, and JF Beach Bum, I will definitely keep all of them. Even my Mummy Eye Chalice is starting to get close to the rock, and grow up the side of the tank. There is some deferred maintenance that needs to happen now that things are growing. And thanks for following along!

Look at all them baby snails! :D Tank is still looking really nice even with dirty glass!
I counted them on one of the side panes this morning, and I stopped counting when I got to 100. The lights aren't on yet, so it makes it easy to see them all, I also am pretty sure they are nocturnal, even though mine are out no matter what.

My ATO container has been running dry, I was about 2.5 gallons shy when I checked as well, YIKES. Should be OK, but a good reminder to me that I need to check the tanks pulse every 3 days or so.

Is that a green slimer in the middle?
It's actually a tenuis, not yongei. It didn't have a name when I bought it, but I've been calling it "The Hulk Tenuis", can you figure out why, lol?!

I know a frequent gripe for hobbyists if having too much green. I actually have a lot of red and pink in my tank, I didn't intend for it to be, but this acro has turned into my showpiece.

Not my video, but it looks identical to this:
