First, an update on the saltwater tank: the hermit crabs have successfully killed pretty much all of the snails, which is wonderful. All of the fish are doing very well, though. Dusty is sort of aggressive, so I can’t wait until he meets Sarge. The firefish goby has a name: Flash. Next weekend, I plan to get a couple of tangs to add to the tank, which will be really exciting. I know I want a yellow tang, and from looking around, I think I’m between a powder blue tang and a really nice looking powder brown tang I saw today at the fish store. Unless something else comes along, it will probably be the yellow and one of the powders.
Next, we’re trying to branch out with the veggies we give Herbert. Here’s a picture of him with some lettuce, and we’ll see how much he goes for the cauliflower leaves I just put in there.
Finally, after several months of searching, we managed to find a Figure-8 Puffer. It was at a place that wasn’t so good, but that’s the only place we could find it. Hopefully he pulls through, but he was eating there before we got him, so things are looking OK.
