You can count them down by one porcelain crab cause he's now living with me!

Really is an interesting guy. HUGE claws! And not nearly as shy as I thought he'd be but I could still see one getting "lost" in a regular sized reef. I think he looks more gray than blue in my tank compared to at the store. It's really calming to watch him spread his nets out and catch things out of the water column. I could spend hours doing it (and probably have, too). My tank is pretty immaculate so mostly he just catches bubbles in them, but he seems to be doing fine with the algae I give him and he's warming up to the feeding tongs too so it's getting easier.

Thanks! I really lucked out this time and he was positioned just right to get a good angle on him. I only took about 5 shots before I ended up with one that I loved. Actually thinking about getting this pic made into a poster for my apartment... would that seem strange? :shock:

Hi Erik
I"ll wave my magic wand and try to make some appear this week?
I promise I'll try my darnedest, but those buggers are in high demand right now!
There's some kinda national/worldwide mass aquarium hair algae outbreak/phenomenon going on?

Hair algae grows quicker in warmer water, and its likely that many people are running higher tank temps now than they may normally do throughout the year. Might be part of it?

Just a theory...

I bought one of the shaving brush plants from this shipment. I didn't have my hopes up too high because I've read that most people don't have much luck with them lasting in their tanks but mine seems to be doing great! Whatever combination of things I'm doing is working because it's even growing a baby about 2.5" away from itself. The baby is even on the other side of a rock from the parent plant so at first when it was just a stump I thought it might be some kind of sponge or something. It must have a pretty big root system. (I'm tempted to rip it up just to take a look but I'm holding myself back.) Here's a pic for your viewing pleasure: (sorry I didn't scrape the coraline first :( )
Image
Yes, the new baby plant is a white-yellow color. The picture is extremely accurate.

Here's another pretty horrible pic (forgot to turn off the flash) just to show another angle and some of my other macros. (the shaving brush, some unidentified leafy red stuff, large grape caulerpa, halimeda, and some other unidentifed branchy red stuff that doesn't grow but doesn't die much either)
Image
Also included in that pic: a limpit and a lot of coraline that I didn't scrape yet (man does that stuff love glass)
