So over the last two weeks I've added some new critters. I joined PMAS and found that the local forums are a good place to buy livestock on the cheap.
Monti caps (Green, purple, orange) - 10$ each
Frogspawn (2 heads) - 10$
Hammer (3 heads) - 10$
2-3" GBTA - 10$
I got the monti caps last week to kind of "test" the water, they are starting to encrust on the rocks a little and havnt browned out, which is a good sign that my nutrients are low.
The GBTA I got today, picked him up from a local reefer whos orginal nem split the first day he got it. Thats a good thing, the "split" gene is said to be a sign of a hardy BTA.
The maroons are hosting this poor little nem already, pestering the shit out of it. Hopefully it doesnt get stressed too badly. I may need to block it off from the clowns.
Edit: also forgot to mention that i have a towel over the screen top to acclimate the BTA to my halide. The owner had it under PC so its a HUGE difference that may hurt it. I plan on leaving the towel there until monday, then I will use more transparent paper towels.
