    Opinions Please! On a run yesterday in the new neighborhood in Koreatown, jogged into the LFS at the end of the street and got inspired. So I've got a setup going on a 10g reeftank, just want to make sure I'm good to go. Despite my readings here, I pretty much let the nice, helpful man sell...

I added 2 camel shrimp and haven't seen them since though I know they do hide alot as I have about 40lbs of live rock in the tank. In the past my...
