    Hey guys/gals, It has been awhile since I last posted to the forums here, between work, the Holidays and of course the tank, I have been busy. I thought I would check in and let everyone know how my 60gal tank has been doing for the last 6 months and perhaps ask for a few tips and advice. The...

    I have a 30gal FOWLR, set up in June, critters added in late July. My cleaner shrimp, added in early august, has molted about every two weeks, if not more often, since I got him. Is this ok/normal? I have a peppermint shrimp as well, who molts but not as often. Perhaps once a month, if I had...
