Going to add about 30 Opae Ula this weekend if the tank is cycled.

Are you going to do anything for water movement?

Beautiful tank, Ken!

Wondering what the seafan will do to the water chemistry. Will it decompose, adding nasties?

Another pic or two, funny how something so small knows to congregate with his siblings. Three are here:

I plan no water movement. The sea fan is coral so it should not decompose if the water stays alkaline.

Seems the berried female may have given "birth". Instead of five (or so) shrimplets there's now about nine.

It's very cool watching them hover in the water then suddenly dart away. They even rest on the tank front glass. (I didn't know they stopped to take a rest.)

I've tried to get some good pictures but I'm not being very successful!

I have lots of light coming into this ten gallon tank. It has the typical fluorescent, in this case a 50/50 (daylight / actinic) and two LED units over it.

There's loads of "bubbling" going on from the macro algae and live rock.
