[SHRIMP TANK] Crystal Black Shrimp Update

 Just an update on the crystal Shrimp.
Shrimp are breeding well and I am preparing for the summer. Firstly getting my chiller running again and secondly, I have purchased an oxidator for the main shrimp tank. Will post pictures up later on when I get it running properly.
Not much of an update this week but I hope the pictures satisfy :)

 Here are some berried female SS CBS. Selecting for color and shell thickness at the moment. Will select for higher grades once I get good consistency in color.

MARINE TANK - Fish and Powerheads

 Fish and Power heads

First of all I have a recent new addition to my marine nano. It is a beautiful little coral goby! What fascinates me about this fish is its curious little eyes and its ability to hang / stick vertically onto objects.

It has found its favourite hidey place in the aquarium as you can see in the picture. I have no idea why fish seem to love resting inside power heads. Currently I have both my power heads off but I did at one stage think of having them on a timer.

Below left is a picture of a another newcomer. A Scolly coral. Fascinating coral indeed. I would love to see this guy open up and eat. As soon as it does I will post up the pictures here.
