Woah, I bet that tank holds a couple thousand of them with ease!

Lol! Maybe!

(As usual, I'm over filtering it with a sponge filter and a Fluval internal filter with Purigen.)

Just finished doing API drop tests on both Opae Ula tanks...

The 6.6 gallon bookshelf with 300 or so shrimp with every other day feedings:

Ammonia: 0

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: 0

pH: 8.4

__________________________

The new 10 gallon with MTS and two Pipipi snails:

Ammonia: 0

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: 10 or 20 (colors too similar for my eyes.)

pH: 8.2

Seems all is going well!

Closer up. Please excuse the diatoms and algae. The snails are doing their best!

Hi Doug,

They're macro-algae.

The fluff and pot scrubber looking things are chaetomorpha and flat leafed one, caulerpa. There are other caulerpa in the 10 gallon tank, too, just not obvious in the pics.

Those look like peppermint shrimp. My work sells them for 9.99 a pop. o.o
