Woo Hoo! A blurry mess!

So, off to the airport again for the live-sand, shipped straight from the seabed, since they didn't have any in stock last week. Monday gathering and shipment for a Tuesday delivery. Not bad.

Of course, adding the sand to a running tank was ... a mess, and the inevitable sandstorm makes a mockery of the crystal-clear water we could see before, so now it looks like:

.. and about 2 minutes after putting the sand in, I snapped this little snail, doing a fair old motor up the side of the front-glass. For a snail, he was really travelling...

... It's pretty amazing how much we get into this, when (after spying that first guy) I spent the next twenty minutes trying to see other things moving around I never did see anything else, and in fact when I went back to the front-glass the original guy had disappeared as well. Such is life

The sand is a different colour/texture to the original stuff I had in there (you can see the stark contrast along the front of the tank), but hopefully it'll all mix up and about over time; especially if I start adding sand-sifting critters.
