Time for an update...
Nigel (the hermit) is alive. He must have molted and hid so deep in his shell that we couldn't see him. Wife and I are very happy about that.
A snail died and I pulled him out. Did the sniff test. Regretted that massively (a week later I could still sort of smell it). Put it in boiling water and then soaked in citric acid for a couple of days. Rinsed thoroughly and popped it back in the tank. Ready for Nigel should he wish to move home.
I've noticed that as the water quality improved, the scallop hid away more, despite dosing some zoo/phyto for it. When I picked it up, it poured out of the shell. I didn't do a sniff test on that.
Scooter blennies and tangs are enjoying the sand bed. It's currently in the ugly phase but the bare bottom looked worse so I can't complain. Need some extra sand for the back part of the tank.
The weir comb was botched together with double sided tape and tie wraps. It wasn't on the list of things to get sorted immediately so it's been like that a while. Today I sorted it out. Runs quieter, looks nicer and looks like I've actually put some effort in
Still need to sort the corners out though. Currently tie wrapped but I intend to fix that.
Big Blue (the regal tang) has a habit of flicking water out of the tank to get my attention after feeding time, or when I'm messing around in the sump. Anyone else's do this?
