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.)

somewhatshocked 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!

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.

somewhatshocked 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! 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!

UDGags This is really cool.....love the algae (did I really just say that?)

awcoburn2 Very cool. Never thought I'd say that about a tank full of algae

Rob in Puyallup Looks shrimp ready to me!

somewhatshocked Lots of new macro algae growth:

somewhatshocked 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.

Rob in Puyallup 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!

somewhatshocked 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.

Rob in Puyallup So Jake, anything new with this?
