I need to be more patient and wait for my pets to reveal themselves

I've been meaning to update my Blog for some time now, but things keep getting in the way. A few days ago, I took pictures of every creature I could in the 55g reef. Here's the page.

Also, I shot a couple of videos just for fun:

Porcelain Crab feeding 1.7 megs

Sun Coral feeding 3.8 megs

Swimming worms! 5.1 megs

I'm still going through a Cyano Bacteria outbreak in the 55g, and a bunch of aiptasia continue to crop up. Using Joe's Juice, I'm trying to erradicate them, plus my hope is that the Peppermint Shrimp I added a few weeks ago will eat some.

I did see the Snowflake eel in my son's tank a few nights ago, when I happened to shine the flashlight across the rockwork. It came out briefly to eat a meaty morsel on the substrate once while we watched, but for the most part it is always out of sight.

The blood shrimp came out for about 5 seconds yesterday, but quickly hid again. Sigh!

I got a Calcium Reactor today, which I'm going to hook up to the 55g in the next few days. It needs some minor repairs and more CO2 before I can get it running.
