We all recycle nutrients to one degree or another.
I am glad we both got on the same page.

I just got (4 hours ago) two more nutrient consumers. A chillie coral and a blue maxima. I did not know clams were so special. It came in its own ice chest from ORA. At less than 2”, it cost $25 per inch. I know some clam farmer needs to buy his daughter a prom dress. I am a big believer in quality. My brothers company slogan was “Quality is not Expensive. It is priceless.” After ten minutes in tank, the yellow tang interrupted the light beam, the clam responded immediately. The chillie looks good to me.

Sorry, unable to post picture.
