No critters yet! Need to find time to decide upon a source but am leaning toward picking some up from a forum member.

Have had to trim some of the Macros because they were growing quickly.

Good to support our members. :-)

I had to trim the flat leaved caulerpa, it grows like crazy while the old growth fades. It does grab hold of everything, so is a bit of a problem to remove.

The chaeto in the new tank isn't growing as quickly as it is in the old tank. That's a good thing, really!

Nope, still no time to order shrimp yet.

But the tank is doing well. Will try to snap a few pics later. Some of the Caulerpa has doubled in size.

Very cool. Never thought I'd say that about a tank full of algae

Lol! Seems if you want a planted brackish or marine aquarium you're pretty much stuck with macro algae. Fortunately, many are attractive and a few won't take over the tank. Too quickly, at least!

Ha! I've removed about 90% of the chaeto and some of the others because of explosive growth. Moved them to various reef refugiums.

Still no shrimp, though. Soon.

Re: Jake's Halocaridina rubra Tank

Lol! That's what I mean by some!

Chaeto and caulerpa are great examples of SEAWEEDS!

:-)

Shame the red one up front isn't so quick.

Hate to do this but think I'm going to shut this tank down and put it on hold for a bit.

My tank room is going through a transition. When I start it back up in a few months, I think I'm going to use a spare Mr. Aqua 3gal rimless tank that I've got in storage.

Stay tuned!

Well, that sucks, Jake.

(Just as I'm thinking of setting up a new 10 gallon. Black sand and aragonite and lava rock, no filtration, chaeto system.)
