Following Grins thread I thought it would be interesting to try out about Xenia scrubbing. I've rearranged my refugium so that my chaeto is one side and the Xenia and rocks the other.
My readings today are as follows:
KH in dKH 8.0
Alk in Meq/L 2.86
Nitrite (NO2) 0
Nitrate (NO3) 5
Ammonia (NH4) 0
Phosphate (PO4) 0.03
Just thought I'd post an updated photo of Titch who is growing well. He's still not on "solids" yet but I keep mixing some in with his Artemia every day. He does take the occasional piece of cyclopeeze so hopefully it won't be long before he's on the frozen.

This is a photo of my Peppermint Shrimp (Lysmata wurdemanni). I currently have two peppermint shrimp, 1 in the main tank and 1 in the sump (via the overflow!). I've had them for about 1 year now. They are quite shy and are rarely seen during the day. They like to eat anything they can get the claws on!!!
