    I'm happy to announce that my nano cube has it's first inhabitants! I went out Monday and got 3 Margarita Snails, 3 hermit crabs, an Emerald Green crab, and another awesome crab. I can't remember the name of it right now. It's a yellowish color, and it has a bright green line that goes across it's face and down the side of the body. They are super cool.

    As soon as I stuck them in there, they started right on the LR.

    Which brings me to another question. The LR when I bought it had a bunch of white worm looking things on them. I figured that's exactly what they were, but just dead. I'm noticing that they are starting to "sprout". They look like the large Featherdusters (I think that's what their called) that our lfs has in their 600gal reef tank, but not so colorful. Anyone have any idea what they are? It seems as if they are pretty common, as there are several on the rock. I was hoping for some other cool hitch hikers like I've been reading about in the threads, but so far, nothing else has shown up. Still pretty awesome though!

    Sweet dude. But need pics

    As Tolley said, you'll have to be patient and wait for things to come out. I still find weird things now and then, and my tank is tiny. I'm still adding coral and every time I throw in a new piece something weird comes out of it. I'm sure you have a whole bunch of stuff its just you haven't seen them yet. I spend a disgusting amount of time watching my tank and I keep a camera beside it too. You never know when something weird is going to happen.

    Congrats on the new addition. I hope you have better luck with the crabs than I did.

    Btw: heres a un-related question. what does the Zamboni actually do? Does it drop hot water on the ice to melt the top layer of ice? always wondered.
