Hey is that the fluval pre filter sponge on the intake of your red sea filter? I have the same setup but the fluval doesn't fit perfectly. Right now I have a rubber band around it but I dont like how it looks. How did you get it to fit? Your little tank is sweet. I have 3.5g set up myself.

I like it, is the light getting the job done? I also like the clean up crew, do you ever see the Oto eating any food or is there enough in the tank to eat?

Looks like you had a shrimp explosion. I see your ad on the SnS. You can also consider trading some in at the LFS for store credit. You might get a bit less money, but you won't have to ship and you can dump a ton at once. Most LFS will give your $1.00 each. Call them up and see how many they'll take. Keep the Fatty Females and you'll be back at 200 shrimps in no time.

Yup, I did that first. They sell them for 12.99, RIDICULOUS. I got 18 of em online for 1.5 times that price. They give 1/3 store credit, so I brought in 12, thinking I was gonna make some bank. And then the guy said he'd take them but they were too small, so he gave me $6 total, 50 cents per shrimp. I got so pissed off I'll never do that again, taking advantage of a kid. Unless I need something there and I have spare adults, but they might come up with some excuse then too...

Did you take them to FB? I got some little ones there not long ago, though not at $12.99.. I've done a ton of business with them and rarely end up with their retail pricing.

What?!?! Do all your negotiating over the phone. Tell them you want straight up $1.00 per shrimp credit and they will be at least juvies. Then tell them you're bringin in 50 shrimps or have your dad bring them in so they don't try and mess with you.
