Hi MJ, yes I got the emails and called today and left a message with my cell #. I will try again tomorrow. Trent, probably what you were seeing coming out of the live rock was bristle worms, which are normally healthy for your tank. You spoke of Mandarin Fish. These are truly beautiful fish but require a huge pod population (as in a large healthy refugium) or they will die of starvation. I have never had one. I have a refugium on 3 of my tanks, but am afraid they would not supply enough pods to feed a Mandarin. I have a female clown in my largest tank that is extremely territorial. When I feed my Sun Coral (truly beautiful) every couple of days (baby brine shrimp or mysis shrimp), she literally attacks me. She goes for the webs on my fingers, especially between my thumb and index finger and will bring blood. I will not tell you what I have named her!! I have tried thumping her in the nose, etc, all to no avail. Reef tanks take a lot of commitment and time and $$. I would have never been able to do this when I had kids at home, but it is perfect for an empty nester. I feel like a chemist at times, with all the testing I have to do. I am jealous of your going to PR in 17 days. July 19 seems so far away. You must write a trip report!!
