Multiplication by mrs fishpatrick on 27 May 2009 11:44
As I was staring in to my little shrimp tank, I noticed my first shrimplet :dance: , not bad after a week
but it is a bit bittersweet as I am aware that my unidentified shrimp that were in there for a few days had dropped their eggs, and as long as I don't know what shrimp they are, I don't know will there be any interbreeding going on with my blue pearls, I am 75% sure that they are not of the same family and am edging to japonica shrimps but so far I am not sure, they are a lot bigger than the blue pearls.

The build by steman on 17 Jun 2014 21:51
Little update.
Tank is all setup with new cabinet new sump and new tank.
Kept same rock and sand, also corals and fish.

This time with the rock scape I wanted to change from "the wall" look, to the "island" style.

Here's some pics of the changes. Next entry I'll go through my problems and equipment update.

inverts:
10 turbo snails
2 cleaner shrimp
1 fire shrimp
3 red legged hermit crabs
1 rose bubble tip anemone
1 pistol shrimp(hitch hiker that im going to try catch and remove him)

corals:
1 torch coral
1 rock full of green star polyps
1 toad stool
2 red mushrooms

soon il be adding some more to my tank but before i do that im going to be looking into my water chemistry more before add anything else im having a problem with my purple algae on my rocks turning white iv done a good bit of research about water chemistry and believe it is my calcium that is low in my tank, im going to seahorse and getting a load of different test kits and additives for my tank and as soon as i understand water chemistry im not adding anymore stock to my tank to be safe!!!

all of my advice and understanding about water chemistry and reef keeping so far is mostly down to a lad that is on youtube and face book his name is newyorksteelo...
