|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.
