    Matt @coral4me is going to start taking apart the aquascaping in our 90 gallon tank this week to move it to our DSA 105. I took a few "goodbye" photos of our 90 before the structure is torn apart.

    Well done!
    I haven't seen those mini carpet nems in ages. Please let me know if you get a loose one

    Sure thing, I can probably spare a few if any other BAR members would like a mini carpet nem.

    Kris I think this rival your tank in term of stuff per surface area ratio.

    Is the carpet nem haddoni?

    Great tank, just leave the brown polyps behind :D

    And be very careful removing them, then have a tendency to be rotten little buggers that ruin your day.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing about leaving the green/brown polyps behind. Thanks for the suggestion, now I definitely will.

    !?! Don't see any mini carpet nems. I do see yumas.

    @roostertech haddonis don't stay small.

    Look at the second photo in post #43. To the right of the Mystic Monti you'll see five mini carpet nems. I agree, I do not think they are haddonis. These guys stay small usually about the size of a quarter. A few have gotten as big as a silver dollar.

    If you are scared of Haddoni because they eat fish, maxi mini do as well. But if your fish are larger, they should be fine. Gobies, blennys that perch are in danger.

    They are super sticky, not to say it couldn't happen, but I've never lost any livestock to them. I have blennies, gobies, cleaner shrimp and a pistol shrimp.

    I don't think I will have anything less than 2" in my tank. Would be perchers are Mandarin and Starry blenny.

    This type seems to stay on the smaller side. Had them about 2-3 years. Usually don't see this type get bigger than 2 inches. They split several times a year which helps keep their size down.
