What do you mean come back?

I'll definitely post up lots of pics. They were supposed to ship yesterday. Hope to have them Friday. Weathers been good temp-wise so I'm looking forward to a safe shipment. Just hoping these guys turn out better then the BD's did. I'm giving the Tigers a nice long drip acclimation to be safe. I'm ordering some more BD's when speedie gets them in. Just a few and I'll be begging for a couple males to be included. Probably getting 5 more, paying for 4 since he owes me a DOA. Might grab some supreme reds too to bolster my PFR stock.

I'll probably be setting up the 12" cube soon too. I think I'm just making it a simple PFR tank, moving all my shrimp from the 20L they are in now and shutting that one down. That will make my two at home tanks and later I'll setup a small 3ish gallon tank at my office. Make it a cull tank for my neos.

I'll eventually make a 2.5-3.5g for a single dwarf puffer and use that as my cull tank LOL.

I actually meant when they come in* but I'm on duty and got distracted lol.

I'm hoping to have them ship Saturday. Arrive Monday.

I'm excited to see pics, as you'll get them first!

Will do. Found 4 BD's, one berried, one I'm pretty sure berried, and one of the tigers is berried. She's huge too compared to the other shrimp. Tigers are pretty big shrimp though, she dwarfs all the rest right now.

Algae question.

I usually get this algae in my tanks to begin with.

I have left my lights on extra long several nights to develop some algae/biofilm.

It is like little millimeter strings off the side glass.

No big deal. Not widespread. Just curious if anybody has insight.

Thanks! I've actually won numerous awards for my journalistic photos. I use a Nikon for them. I just love that I can upload these straight from my phone lol.
