fishtank thursday

the saltwater tank now has about 50 pounds of rock in it and quite a
few patches of pink coralline algae. there is also some nasty, brown
stuff growing everywhere (that i have identified as diathoms) but my
"cleaning crew" made up of snails and hermit crabs seems to have it
under control.

don't feel quite confident enuff to put fish in there yet. but hermit
crabs can be surprisingly entertaining...

(did i just say that? i need to get out more!!)

ah... the cycling...
the waiting is the hardest part.

how do you get the salt right?
do you just shake in some Iodized Mortons every so often?
