You still keeping Opae?

What type of hydrometer are you using? All of them are pretty inaccurate, but the plastic box type are REALLY bad- they get worse over time. If I ever make it to one of the meets bring a sample of your water and I will bring my refractometer and check it for you.
You should pick up a few pieces of dry live rock, better than the lava rock... It is a 2.5 gal tank, right? I may have a few pieces I can spare from my 180 Gallon reef sump.

. Yea was bumping some of my subscribed threads haha.
Did you try altering the salinity to encourage breeding?
|08-21-2012 04:29 PM|
Ah, you guys bumped this up lol.
No luck with breeding. I think I lost a few. Not sure how many I have left. Though I see some from time to time picking on the lava rock. They seem to enjoy being in the dark nooks and crannies between the lava rocks than out in the open. The MTS are breeding like crazy and 4/5's of the tank has been smothered by green hair algae. I'm thinking about rescaping when I find a some decent pieces of black lava rock or lace rock.

|xenxes||I killed all of mine and went fresh, hope you're having better luck!|

|diwu13||Any updates MonsterFish? Any luck with breeding?|

That was my concern too, do they spend most of the time in the rock piles or the algae? Have you experimented with moss? Hoping they eat algae/microfauna in java moss. Still don't have much algae-- I threw in a wafer to seed algae and all it did was make the water brown lol.
I just did a little rescaping, will post a pic soon.

|Monster Fish||The only thing I don't like about the rock piles is that I rarely see most of the shrimp. Next time I rescape, I am going to do a layer of lava rock along the bottom and float the algae near the surface.|

It's impossible to do a good scape with lava rocks, I think I'll just pile it on
Maybe I'll pile them on the edge like you did, except both sides since I don't have enough algae.

|xenxes||I think I did|

|Monster Fish||I think you posted in the wrong thread. Lol|

|xenxes||So the Coralife light has a shimmering effect, don't know if this is intended with marine lights or if it's a product defect. Either way it makes me nauseous. Can anyone recommend another light replacement for the Edge (assuming I don't want to cut off the top/plastic?)... clip on a Fluval 13W, or Finnex 26W at the filter area?|

|xenxes||I'm sure it does, on the box it says not to pour directly into tanks with animals. Good thing I don't, yet|
