What's that spiky plant in the center of your tank? Looks really cool!

Also, with so many nerites in your tank how are you getting rid of all the eggs they lay? Do you think it's useful having a nerite in shrimp tanks? If so... are you selling :P? Can't wait to see this in person haha.

How long do nerites live for? How do you remove the eggs too, don't you find them everywhere?

And I read online that nerites don't do well in pH's of less than 7. Which I assume your tank has to be in, or the CRS would die.

My CBS came in from her today. Kind of pale, but now I know what they color up to be like. She really does have great shrimp!
