    Ok, I found some more unknown stuff. I'm guessing this first thing is a "flatworm" but I am not sure. Also I think the other thing is a baby shrimp, but is he a peppermint, because that is all I have in the tank that I know of? Any help is greatly appreciated, thank-you. Joe

    Hi ho - Here are a few shots of my tank. Overall, I am happy with the Red Sea Max. There have been a few problems: The heater did not work correctly (it had a swing of 8-9 degrees!), so I replaced it and all is well now. The DC cord for the aux fan did not work, but that was a quick...

    Well its been less then then a week but i just notice my first hitchhiker. Its a tiny little guy and he dissappeared quickly so no chance to get the camera out. So I will do my best to describe it. If I remember correctly I had a few of these in my large reef so I am not too concerned. You...

    Hi, A lot of freshwater shrimp fry start in a larvae stage that requires a transplant from FW to SW until they complete there larval stages. What I want to do is make a SW nursery for them but I can't afford all the lighting, skimmers and all the other whistles that go with a full blown Reef...

    Hi, My name is Asia and I have a 35 gallon salt tank. I went to my local pet store and bought a few inverts to put in my tank and saw a pregnant Peppermint shrimp. I am unaware of how long she has been with eggs, but am scared that she will lay them and I won't be able to raise the babies. I...

    Well this has been a fun day. I moved my shrimp to a 'fuge tank while waiting for her to release her eggs. should have happened last night, at least so I thought. She was being held in a contianer that allowed water flow, but kept her in easy reach. I holds onto the side of the tank with suction...

I can raise baby shrimp, (22 days so far), All equipment is functional, most everything is open and happy. the frags are all growing well. So why is it that I can't get my GSP to open more than 5 polyps for 5 minutes? The frag...

    From about Jan 1 to Feb 1, I was trying to keep a Dkh of 9-10 and a calcium of ~400ppm using a 2 part system. The tank is 75g system BB Softies and fish only, and IO salt mix. I was having a real hard time keeping it stable at these levels, and Dkh would fall about 1 point every two days, and...

    This is the 3 brood but the first one carried to full term. Confirmed 16 babies so far. Earlier today, I saw a tail in the dad's mouth for a brief second and he sucked it back in so I figured I better keep an eye out after the lights went off for an hour and sure enough. Since this is my...

    Quick question if anyone is still up. Earlier I saw one of my blood shrimp get very aggressive toward the other one. I just looked in the tank with a small light and saw what might be baby shrimp. Lots of them. Any one seen this? Very small and everywhere.
