    Default iyachtuxivms Lagoon

    So I was going for a fuge/seagrass tank with this but after a bad experiance with ummm..... we will call it poor shipping of delicate marine plants I am going this route instead. I didnt find a great deal of info as for plants in a lagoon but in mine I have some monticaps, zoos, algae of all sorts, mangroves and a lobo. For fish I have a Antennarius maculatus or wartskin angler. Inverts consist of a few cerith snails a nerite snail a few nassarius a trochus and a fighting conch. I was thinking of adding a dursa clam but we shall see. My seahare may make cameo appearances off and on. So after most of the tank has been cleaned of dead/dying seagrass and other "poorly shipped" macros this is where I am at. Still needs a good vaccum or two.

Your starting to make me want to get a smaller species tank for one of these little guys! Wife would either kill me or make me get rid of the big one tho probably so I must live through more pics of yours for now
    Yeah he is kinda hard to spot. But it was funny I was cleaning the glass and he hangs out in the back of the tank as I was cleaning I saw him stomping down from the back. I took a couple pics and decided to review what I had took and came across that. He was watching me from around those barnacles, I looked up and he was still doing it. He was just peeking out, very funny. He ate 3 sand eels right after that didnt even need me to wiggle them around.
