All kinds of new goodies are growing in the tank and on finally on the rock:





Had a bit of salt creep:



So worked some magic with a bit of clear packing tape over a tiny hole in the cover.

P.S. You're welcome for the dirty glass, glare and rough cell phone shots!

Looking good, Jake. Is the tank cycled yet? Are you any closer to ordering the opae ula?

All kinds of goodies are growing these days:



Even some reddish coralline-looking stuff!

Noticed something cool when adding ammonia to the tank tonight:

It's just what happens when ammonia is added to the water.

Brought home a few pounds of various macro algae from some of my tanks and plan on testing them out beginning tomorrow.

Here's hoping something grows.

Some of the macro algae I brought home from my office had been doing pretty well in brackish water - especially the three varieties of Chaetomorpha.

Here's a rough shot of the tank:



Some additional shots:





Chaetomorpha:





Only time will tell how things go.

Hi Jake... Really like the bubbly looking caulerpa and the red twigs.

Chaetomorpha and caulerpa are doing well in both of my Opae tanks.

Are there shrimp in the tank yet? Love the macro algae. Very neat.
