How's that neon green Nepthia doing there. I remember I had mine mounted like that when i first got it, but it kept breaking free. It finally settled into a hole where it slipped in and was barely visible. A few weeks later it took hold and slowly worked it's way out. It was a slow grower under the PCs, but now under the MH, it seems to be growing a bit faster.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.

i just got it in a trade as a loose piece, usually i shove a toothpick through my leathers and rubber band the toothpick down to attach them. in this situation im attempting to get it on a frag plug so rubber banding would be difficult, i just glued the toothpick down, which you can see. it appears to be starting to take hold but ill wait until its good and attached to scrape off the glue and pull out the tooth pick.

my inverts from my clubs group buy came in,
dripping a bunch of snails

arrow crab

this guy was dying and growing lots of hair algae so it was given to me to try to get it to bounce back. i scrubbed as much algae off before adding it to my tank so hopefully i dont have an outbreak. my main lights were out when i took the picture so its not great

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

any crab will pretty much eat will eat what it can get its hands on. mainly these things eat brisle worms (theres something to youtube, someone has one in a jar lol) but i have heard someone had one eat snails. im not a crabs because of their random eating patterns but i always wanted one and know a guy that has kept a few of them without problems through out 10-15 years and figure if theres issues i will introduce him to my refuge.
