To catch up here...

Phosphates were not the problem in the 10 gallon tank. Neither was overfeeding, only thing I can figure is the intense lighting. When I removed the LEDs the cyanobacteria (the new growth) changed from green-brown to a quite attractive bluegreen.

Yesterday I dosed the tank with Maracyn 2, the beginning dose for a 10 gallon freshwater tank, which is the contents of two packets. Today I added one.

Here's a picture taken just after the second dose. No changes yet, and the water is still clear.

Day three of Maracyn 2: Seems the bluegreen cyanobacteria has darkened in color, heading toward a pea-green now. Hoping that means the antibiotic is beginning to work!

A new anemone of some sort. I can't see it without the camera it's so small, it's tentacles are waving in the current:

It is bigger with more tentacles than what I would call a hydra.

Are the adults or baby opae in any danger from the anemone.

Too small for anything but the cyclop-thingies at this point, I'm thinking. Will be watching closely :-)

It appears to be an Aiptasia - definitely remove it. They have the ability to sting your shrimp. Way worse than hydra.

Get it out quickly before it starts to populate your tank. At that point, it'll be next to impossible to eradicate them.

Glad to see all of those berried mamas, though! You're going to have quite the colony.
