    Movin' on up....Transferring some of the coral from the biocube to the new tank....looking good so far. Now I just need to get this bubble tip I got from Vincent last year to move his foot out from the back of the rockwork....20 minutes pushing water at him and he hasn't budged

    I had to suspend mine out of the water above my tank for a couple days to get it to finally release.

    I was able to remove a piece of the reel reef rock that I had in the tank and it gave me better access to it....and now I can reach him, but he hasn't lifted his foot yet. Will try again later tonight....lucky the clowns haven't tried to nip at my hands yet

    If you can get at the edge of the foot you can gently pry it away. My nem's foot was buried in a hole in the rock.

    I left the small power head pointing directly at the BTA for over 24 hours and it did not move, nor did it want to release as I massaged it....so I had to take drastic measures and break apart the aquascape and place the who thing in the new tank.

    I am liking these ph levels...just hoping the BTA decides to move out from the rock it currently is attached to...

    Has yours split yet? I got mine from @Vhuang168 too. Mine just split for the second time. I caught it in the process.

    Then they proceeded to wonder all over the rock looking for a place to settle. Both are now on the back side of the rock barely visible.

    Nope, hasn't split yet....I would say that it foot is a good 3-4" in diameter....opens to about the size of a medium dinner plate ~8"...

    No luck yet on the BTA moving from the rock he attached himself to in the old tank....taking up the entire middle section where I created a bridge IMG_20170517_155842475.jpg

    Time for another update...just finished another wc of 15g and also upped the lighting to 40% whites and 60% blues. Starting to see more Coraline algae growth on the rockscape and fish are getting a lot nicely. IMG_20170630_123127702.jpg

    Last week. Added a six line wrasse to the tank...only to find it being consumed by the hermit crabs around midnight.... Today we added what I think will be the last fish for us...a flame angel. In hopes that he doesn't go nipping at the corals...I put in some nori attached to a rock. So far the 2 clownfish have kept him in check....

    Got home today from our trip to Monterey and found out that we lost power at the house. Luckily the RKL was back on and running things when we returned....the only piece of equipment that was not working was the skimmer....but after a quick cleaning in vinegar it was back up and running.
    All corals and fish look normal....

    The clam may not be attached with his foot yet, and may have fallen over.
