Do you think I can buy trimmings of the algae from you? Since your local to me.

i added about 80 tiny shrimps that i purchased at a pet store. they were all too small at the time to tell what i got, but now they are large enough to be identified. three types, blue rilli shrimp, taiwan fire reds, and super tigers.

not bad for 50 bucks.

Your algae looks perfect for baby shrimps. Can you sell me some when you do your next trimming ( yanking)?
Thanks.

Buy or find in goodwill/flee market the cheap fountain decorative. Pull out its pump and connect to the breeder box intake.

Awesome idea. That's my wife's biggest complaint about the breeder boxes.
