Thanks for the meeting Andy, it's always cool to see a tank 22 times the size of mine!! One thing I noticed about his shop is that there doesn't seem to be as many tools as I expected, I guess that just goes to show how much skill and know-how go into handmade products instead of machines cranking them out.
The algae talk was great. More than I ever wanted to know about algae. Just hope next time a few more common names could be used so this newbie could keep up a little better. (not a complaint just a suggestion)
My refractometer is too cool and I'm happy to report that when I tested my tank it was spot on at 1.025. I was always a little nervous about that and now it's one less thing to worry about.
The nasty crab done ate what was left of the calurpa in the crab detention center. He is doing fine and not hiding at all. I have never seen one of those kinds of crabs as brazen as he is. Just doesn't seem to care bout nutin..
I had some calurpa I throw in from time to time, I am gonna try and see what he does with a piece of live rock covered in hair algae.
Thanks for the crab, I should have some more calurapa soon.
