In the “one reefer’s pestilence is a slug’s tasty snack” department, Marcos from Exotic Reef Creations sent over a batch of rock and zoanthids and live rock that were covered with lush Bryopsis growth. Although the dedicated algae tanks have helped keep the supply up, I was very excited to receive the new infusion. The gals are over the moon about it. The photos below show the whole gang hunkered down in feeding posture. They have been face down in it for almost 24 hours now.
The goal is to have them clear the algae so the corals can go back home. It will be interesting to see how long that takes.
Meantime, the molecular experiments are moving along. More soon.
