    Oh yeah totally! I started with a tiny clump on the right hand side between two rocks. ALL the other 'plumes' you can see are where it has drifted off and attached itself elsewhere! I also notice lots of tiny bits of it growing all over the rock lol. I quite like how it's established itself...

    More saltiness! Mwahahaha I could be wrong but I'm not sure that it is curtissae. The pictures of curtissae online look really ruffled but this is more of a flat dense bush. I always thought it looked more like Gracilaria mammillaris. Top photo is a picture of curtissae from Live Algae...

    'Cozen' - Journey to IAPLC '22 (Next stop: Cenote Aktun Ha!)

    New Scape, who dis? I've been so busy with life and macroalgae that I forgot to share updates on the progress of this new scape. Rather than create a new journal, I thought I'd redirect this one since the scape is in the same housing and feels very much connected, although completey different...

    Seems difficult to source but if I can't get hold of it, I could wait until I go to the USA next month. I see Seachem Vitality is widely available but I presume it's an inferior product. This video though 😂 The octopus part was the best.

    Ok thanks! I might look at getting some myself.

    Spotless Water

    I've used Spotless for the last 5 months now without any issues, but maybe a good point that I should check the water myself too. I like it because it's cheap (around £2.50 for 60L or something to that effect). I don't change much water when I do so an RO unit isn't worth it.

    Oh God, now I'm worried what I might find! 🙃 Everything in the marine world seems so much more deadly haha. They are mesmerising fish. Seeing them online and in the shops they look cool but seeing them in this environment with no disturbance or predation lets them show their best sides. I could...

    Thanks, that's good to know. I'll inspect it once I muster up the courage to clean the pipes 😅

    Do you mean the media or the equipment itself?

    Yeah from I've read on other forums it seems very very rare to have one jump. But for now I'm just too traumatised from the last time so I'll probably keep it on until the trauma wears off lol. The tank does look much better without a lid but it also keeps the evaporation down meaning I have to...

    Thank you! 😭😭 Thank you Gill! Not at all. I think the Pipefish were £33 each. Definitely have a go if you're able to and your interest is peaked! I don't know if you've kept a marine tank before but it's very rewarding and the way I've set mine up, the experience is remarkably similar to...

    Blatantly Complacency I had a slight mishap recently with the tank. The clown goby was just starting to eat (hallelujah) but I got too complacent with the fact that it liked to stay in one place on the substrate. I removed the lid, thinking I was safe. Low and behold, it jumped out and became...
