Those look like bacter balls Nick. It's Bacter 100 baked into a large ball. Not a collection point but actual ball of beneficial bacteria.

They're 'dancing' Jeff lol. In shrimp terms, they are looking for that special lady shrimp to do the dirty with because she just molted.

High grade rilis. I've seen a total of 8 molts, meaning that a good amount of female have molted, so far no dancing or a shrimp without a saddle.

Anyways sorry to hijack... But I saw the Super Tiger X OEBT if no one else cared to zoom in 500%....

lol, that's _ALMOST_ impossible, you're the only one who bought rilis so I sent you all of them, and some were too small to tell gender of.

By looking it and gray color, they are Azoo sponge filter. (I think) I got two of them and they are great. They use to have in fish.com but, I don't think they sell any more. I ordered last 2 big sponge filters and 3 double sponge filters.


By the way Donny, I have same rack and same sponge filters. hehe
I like your setup!
