picked up a royal gramma today

always been one of my favorites. so colorful! he's fitting right in, spending a lot of time posturing at his reflection.

water params are staying perfect. down to just a small water change every week to 10 days. i think adding the skimmer helped a lot! all 3 fish are doing great, as are the inverts. getting coralline everywhere. i've been feeding the brittle star small pieces of raw shrimp and he is lovin' it.

i have seen a few more hitchhikers emerging. there is a tiny little creature i am trying to i.d., terribly hard to get a picture but he is less than 1/4" long, looks to have 2 iddy biddy almost antenna-looking things and very strange...almost looks like 2 tiny little eyes. not sure if he came in on the live rock or if he is from another planet. he zips through the water, lands somewhere and just hangs out.

Tough to say from that shot, they look as if they may be Feather Dusters.
