Role model

If barnacles could dream ...

Barnacles on crab carapace and the big burrowing anemone

I went out and bought a new tank for my critters today. It's twice the size, roomy enough for a small forest of eelgrass and a rockery (stonery?) for the hermits to climb on. And the main thing: the glass is not scratched! Several years of hermits banging about, snails scraping algae, me scraping leftover algae, and the pump sand-blasting everything had turned the glass walls hazy.

I've moved everyone into their new home, and they seem happy with it. And I'm going to bed.

  1. how exciting! old tank can be a new nursery. Or a hydrogarden for those days you dont want to go out on the icy rock to harvest greenery and critters for feeding


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
