    I had a little set back this week. After 8 months of being in the tank and staying right were I put him, the sebae anemone decided one night that he would move over one foot to the left to sit right beside the clam. That poor clam did not stand a chance and he did not survive. The only thing that is changed is the behaviour of the clown fish. As they are beginning to mature, they have started to fight it out to determine dominance (who will be the female) so they have been a lot rougher on the anemone. Im guessing the stress of that made him move. He is still moving around a little, but sticking to the same little area as that is the only spot with the moderate flow these guys typically like. I did move a bunch of corals to the other side of the tank to be safe.

    From now on, its nothing but carpet anemones for me.

    But we did find some magician pallys yesterday. Ive been waiting a while for our SW LFS to get some in and they finally did. Once we get the new tank set-up, these pallys will be moved in there.



    I also got a dosing pump for this tank as well. Ive been running into the same problems keeping the dKH and the Cal stable as we keep adding more and more corals and as the coralline continue to grow.



    And a FTS

    Man, sorry to hear about your clam, though it's good to hear everything else is fine so far. Looking great, despite the loss.

    Not that I have re-homed the emerald crabs that were living in the live rock compartment of the sump, Im trying a few different macro algaes. About two weeks ago, I got a small pc of Caulerpa sertularioides and it looks like it is doing well in the sump. At least I hope it is Caulerpa sertularioides as this macro algae can easily be mistaken for a few different types of more common macro algaes (like Caulerpa Mexicana or Caulerpa taxifolia AKA killer algae). You cant really be sure until it starts to grow and take hold in a tank. Its about inch tall right now




    I also got a nice pc of red Centroceras clavulatum. As with most marco algaes, it can be hard to properly identify them until they grow and spread. Im hoping this will not turn out to be more red fuzz algae (Asparagopsis taxiformis). I want to try something a little different this time.





    Im managing to keep my nitrate just a touch below 1 ppm so there should be just enough nitrates in the water for some macro algae to grow and hopefully thrive. All the other macro algeas that I have tried in the past became lunch for either a crab or a tang. Hopefully Im going to be successful in the long term this time.

    And as an added surprise, I found what looks like green star polyps growing on the rock in the sump as well. Im a little at a loss to explain were this little guy can from, or how he got in the sump, but it sure is nice to see him there just the same.



    And of course a FTS

    My feather macro algae (Caulerpa Sertularioides ) seams do be doing good. It is now ~1 inch in size and is sending out runners. I looks like it is close to having doubled in size over the past two weeks.





    The red hair marco algae (Centroceras Clavulatum) seams to be doing OK as well. It is growing slower but I have noticed growth.
