Terrestrial is the word you're looking for Wink.

Hard to choose though. But aquatics seems more interesting.

Okay so I decided since the tanks cant get any worse and I actually have good lighting (MAJOR morale booster for me) Im going to try mission impossible and save the tank. Im doing what I can right now without spending any money but sooner or later im going to have to get more CUC stuff since the tanks pretty much border line wiped. Im thinking a emerald crab and 2 red or blue tipped hermits and maybe a few extra Nassarius snails. Thoughts?

Ah, I see.

Well, you definately need some more maids in there.

What about pom pom crabs to add a bit of interest as well? They'll eat pretty much anything AFAIK.

Sounds like a good idea blunto. I wouldn't get any hermit crabs however, since they will go for your snails.

Yea lol once you see this...You're going to think im insane for not only keeping the tank up but believing I can fix it. The SG is through the roof so thats distilled water I got dripping in on a VERY VERY VERY slow drip.

Well I was thinking il take the old turbo snail shells I got laying around and put in there since red and blue tipped hermits dont get but about the same size as those shells so thatll hopefully solve that problem.

This is the perfect example of how little credit we give our aquatic friends with regard to hardiness.

Don't know how anything survived that, tbh.

Honestly...Im not even sure. In one way I say yes in another I would rather not spread anything around. I already have to take the skimmer apart and un clog it so it will start working again. Tomorrow I plan on trying to clean up at least one or two of the rocks and getting the skimmer running again. Probably redo the flow because its pushed all the sand to one end of the tank. Debating on if I want to disturb the sand bed now to even it out or wait until i get it more under control.
