Woah, I bet that tank holds a couple thousand of them with ease!

Lol! Maybe!

(As usual, I'm over filtering it with a sponge filter and a Fluval internal filter with Purigen.)

Just finished doing API drop tests on both Opae Ula tanks...

The 6.6 gallon bookshelf with 300 or so shrimp with every other day feedings:

Ammonia: 0

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: 0

pH: 8.4

__________________________

The new 10 gallon with MTS and two Pipipi snails:

Ammonia: 0

Nitrite: 0

Nitrate: 10 or 20 (colors too similar for my eyes.)

pH: 8.2

Seems all is going well!

Just completed a 10% (one gallon) water change in the 10 gallon tank.

Sure! Give a minute, not much different except for a bit of green and a new lamp!

Closer up. Please excuse the diatoms and algae. The snails are doing their best!

Hi Doug,

They're macro-algae.

The fluff and pot scrubber looking things are chaetomorpha and flat leafed one, caulerpa. There are other caulerpa in the 10 gallon tank, too, just not obvious in the pics.
