An odd green haze swirling like a mini tornado in the tank this morning. Don't know if it's the algae I scrubbed off the front glass last night or single celled algae on the loose. Very interesting... Opae ula don't seem fazed by it.

Green haze still up top, filter just trickling, obviously not enough of a flow from the filter to suck the green up.

Shrimp still happy:

Seems those pearling diatoms have just about left the room. Thinking mostly from the MTS and their plowing through the sand.

I got a small shipment of Opae Ula today born and raised in Texas. In amongst the shrimp was this shrimpette:

Every time I see this thread it makes me want to get another tank. I have always been interested in Opae Ula.

I wonder what that is can you describe it better than the picture displays it? Do you think it is a baby opae?

It's in about the center of the photo in front of the hole in the live rock. Caught it while it was swimming horizontally. It's about 1/8" long.

Not a bad pic considering my phone's camera took it.

These are so cool. I'd love to set a tank up with them in it but this mind is focused on CRS ATM

I'll be following

Background is black washable shelving fabric (more like 1/8th inch foam than paper) from Walmart. It's blue only in pics. Probably the actinic part of the spectrum in the fluorescent tube.

The "moss" is two forms of Chaetomorpha macro algae.
