    Apparently one can pick up some interesting inverts on live rock.
    Some welcome, some not so welcome

    Guess it's time for An update here. After having a huge hair algae problem, caused by the shellie tanks light, things are slowly falling in place here. Have added one new coral and two Scarlet leged hermits to the aquarium. Some updated pictures.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks @MariaS and @Hendre

    Luckely I get emplyee discount.

    But going for 4 months now it's so frustrating watching everything in slow motion, compared to a planted tank. But I knew from the start that this was not going to be a sprint.

    Yes I do. Shellie tank will be updated during the next few days. Gourami tank is doing ok, only two left. Cube is also still going. I ha e been extremely lazy with the maintanance on these tanks for the past few months. At least I will have more than enough time over the next three weeks to sort them out and post some pictures.
