I finally got around to locating my old camera, it's not the best camera in the world, but it takes decent shots (Fuji FinePix S4250).

Here's a FTS and another decent shot of the Mushrooms coming out of the LiveRock. Ignore the Damsel; He'll go back as soon as I get the time to net him out and exchange him for the actual LiveStock that will be going in here. (Oh what joy that will be).


(As you can see; The Diatoms are starting to take over.)



Also; I have something growing out of my LR but I have no idea what it is, I've did some checking around and I can't really find anything about it. Unfortunately since my battery did die in my better camera, I did have to take this with my low-res phone.

After looking up some images, that does appear to be what it is indeed (They look exactly like that actually).

It appears that I have all sorts of hitch hikers with this Live Rock. Pretty excited to check it again in a few days and see what else I can find.

Thanks Bert!

I probably won't be doing anymore photos unless I can find any new critters crawling from the rocks; I will likely begin more picture taking when I get some Coral in the aquarium, not much else I can take pictures of at this point

I decided to take some more photos for my documentation purposes considering I can literally see the Diatoms spreading by the hour. I'm hoping that they run out of silicate eventually and die off, I do know that the sand I added did have a fair amount of silicate. I'm just hoping my top off water doesn't have any trace of silicates

Anywho; enjoy my Diatom infested aquarium













My cycle is quite near to the end, so I'll be able to add some diatom feasting snails at some point to clean it up.

Welp,

Time for another update;

No photos (yet) since my tank is still recovering from the disassemble I had to do in order to remove the damsels to take them back (Yes, I learned my lesson).

Anyhow; badxgillen sent me package with some goodies (Thanks again!) to help control my algae and some other stuff to help fill up my aquarium.

I went today and got some Button Polyps, Xenia, and picked up my actual aquarium fish; Six Line wrasse and Royal Gramma, I got some Turbo snails and blue leg hermits (Bert also sent me some of these) while I was there to start up me clean up crew.

I'll get some photos up later this evening once the tank clears up
