Re: Psy's little Marine Cube #22
I forgot to post my new pics up! Some dull (for now) looking live rock in the tank. Its been cycling for 2 weeks so far. It was well cured before I got it, so I don't think it will be much longed before it's good to go. The main rock is Fuji but the smaller pieces and the bit at the front is blue stone. Costs a bit more but is much better for filtration as there are no dead spots.

New little hitch hiker - called Tiny Tim as it was spotted just before Christmas. Not named by me.

Thinking about it, I think this pic was taken before it was re-arranged again. I must take a more up to date pic later...

Re: Psy's little Marine Cube #24
I think it's an Asterina starfish - quite common and shouldn't be a pest.

It's been in hiding for the past week though.

Re: Psy's little Marine Cube #26
Definitely some gobies - probably a pair of neon blue. Also thinking about Bengaii Cardinals - that is I can find a happy male/female pair. Still doing my research though

It does help having TMC on my doorstep - most LFS have a good selection in thanks to them. They also have a good bengaii breeding programme

Re: Psy's little Marine Cube #27
Latest pics - I now have 2 turbo snails and 2 red leg hermits taking residence in my cube. They are fascinating to watch! I've also seen a few more hitch hikers. I've got a couple of small feather dusters, something else which I have no idea what it is and, unfortunately, some Aiptasia. Next addition to the tank will be a peppermint shrimp - that should help.

Then, on to corals

Re: Psy's little Marine Cube #28
Hope the pics are working. I can see the thumb nails, but when I click on them, it says they are moved... Hmmmmm.

Re: Psy's little Marine Cube #29
After 6 months of being patient, I am finally happy to add some corals - only got a few softies so far, but I'm really happy with the selections. I've got some Mushrooms, Green Star Polyps, Ricordea and Zoanthids. My Hermits and Shrimp are enjoying exploring the new additions

I also work with someone that has a lot of Xenia so hopefully that will be the last addition.

Re: Psy's little Marine Cube #30
All sounds good Need a few more pics though ... Sounds like patience is paying off, much better than storming in and adding too much too soon
