Good News: Since moving my saltwater tank home from the office where I used to work a week ago, I havn't seen any trace of my pistol shrimp/antenna goby pair. Tonight I noticed a mound of sand in front of a shrimp sized hole. So at least the shrimp is still alive.
Good News: I applied for a job last wednesday, and interviewed for it on Friday. I have a follow up interview tomorrow! So There's a very promising chance I'll be employed again after only 4 weeks after being
I'm getting ready to order my overflow from www.Glass-holes.com for my 150. They make a 700 gph and a 1500 gph model, I'm planning to have about 700 to 800 gph return from my sump, so a single 700 would be marginal. So, do I get two 700's, one for each corner? Or a single 1500?

Well, I haven't seen him all week, till last night! There he was out in the open grabbing food, with one antenna on the goby
I'm looking for someplace to get clean up crews and detritus eaters to replenish my display and stock a new sump in the near future. I love the selection at Indo-Pacific Farms, but they won't ship to Alaska! Is there anywhere else that sells bristle worms and especially mini brittle stars? I'd rather not pay for shipping for several pounds of live sand and rock that may or may not have what I want still living in it. And since I'm adding it to an existing system I really don't want
