Great macro of the shrimp.
Thanks! I was testing out a new lens for that one. Apparently it works.

Thanks! So far it has been almost zero maintenance so perfect for an office tank.

Well, unless I'm reading it wrong, the last time I did the test it took 5 drops to change the color in the test tube of my API test kit. The chart says that 5 drops is either 5 dkh or 89.5 ppm gh/kh. And this is with me using RO/DI water. I think the last time I did that test was before I started using Salty Shrimp Bee Shrimp Mineral GH+. I need to test it again.

Thanks! I run the lights from about 10am-5pm. Any longer and i start getting algae growth on the rocks.

Yeah, excellent macro shot! The colors of that shrimp are mesmerizing and you captured that! And great use of the moss as a foreground cover. It must be a real biotch to trim it down nice and level. Don't let it get too thick or dense; in my Mini-M I've let it grow out for ~3 weeks and cutting it is like giving a haircut. Plus all the small fronds that float all over the tank. They eventually settle and you can scoop them up though.
