    Yeah been using it and it gets rid of them. Seems I just find a small one somewhere else ha. Some bits of rock are hidden so I can't see under cracks etc.
    It's been great though on the stuff I can see

    Well update time!

    Well overdue.

    Reefloat auto water changer, also amazing!

    Reefloat auto top up too, brilliant piece of gear!

    And some update on corals and my Bubble tip, unfortunately my malu went mental and decided it had enough. Went brown and shrivelled and leaking lots of milky stuff from itself. It also had its mouth open so a bad sign. Decided to get it out as it was making everything else sad too and down.. Not sure why it happened :(.
