i have some frags coming today and i need to do some major rearranging in my 29g. is it ok to put much of the live rock from the tank into a bucket of tank water while i work? it won't be in there for more than an hour or so.
your command is my wish. or is that the other way around? LOL
of course, if i was coming at them with food, all fish would be front and center but noooo, i had the camera so they conspire...quick, here she comes again with the camera...EVERYBODY BEHIND THE ROCKS!!!!
until everything is acclimated, i have put the new stuff near the bottom. i swear, the kenya tree was so tiny, i wasn't even sure there was anything ON the frag plug. after a day in the tank, it "grew" to almost 1"! the lavender mushrooms are da bomb and the little feather dusters are a very pretty yellow. still waiting for the long polyp leather to really come out. right now, he looks like a miniature of my toadstool mushroom.
yes, the front corners of both tanks are rounded and yes, the mag float doesn't cut it. i find i have to go snorkeling every few days and clean the corners with a little sponge sort of algae scraper. it is one of the few design flaws i have found with these biocubes. i have one chestnut cowrie in the 14g and 2 in the 29g and also the 29g has the sea urchin. these guys go a long way in keeping he glass clean but for some reason, they skip right on by those rounded corners. go figure!
