Fire Shrimp Self-Acclimation Tutorial in 5 easy steps

1. Open bag and empty some water.
2. Place bag in water with rolled rims.
3. Add small amount of tank water to bag.
4. Turn around to open snails' baggie and

5. Lastly find Fire Shrimp on his way out the bag.

And before you can get to the bag, it tips the rest of the way from him walking up it and BAM down he goes and is happier than &#&%.

His whole acclimation lasted about 10 minutes. Grrrr I hope he'll be alright which I think he will, because he has pretty much made him self at home. He is not shy.....He crawled under a rock and then said nope, and he's out exploring all over. LOL.

Diver's Den Tour

I emailed LiveAquaria Sunday about the peppermint shrimp and they emailed me back today with a credit to my account. I told them I bought it at their retail store and they credited me $31. and change. I feel guilty, it didn't cost that much, was 8.99. Now I emailed them late late Saturday night/early Sunday morning, then set up an "order" at 10am, cancelled that "order" at 10am, and contacted me with my options. I think for a company that does that much business, I think it's awesome speedy service.

Will I shop there again, hell yes, however, I'm gonna try to keep my hands in my pockets when I go to retail store, and just order on line....soooo much cheaper that way.

Was trying to go through the pictures but I'm uploading them now to photo bucket. I will post a link to it shortly. If you have any questions on a pic, then post the pic with the question.

1st link is a link to their videos (which of course are better than the 2 I have), I don't even know if they will play.

Virtual Aquarium Fish Video Clips : LiveAquaria.com Video Center

2nd link is to photobucket with 215 pictures from the Tour of Diver's Den this past Saturday, 2/25/12.

Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

Disclaimer: I am not a photographer, I don't own a decent camera, I don't know how to take clear pictures of something in water let alone without. Enter at your own risk.

I'll be posting pics from photobucket as a I get a chance. Here are a few to start.

When I go to Drs. Foster & Smith (the Retail Store), I normally buy from 1 of these 4 coral displays, if I want any they have that day.

Some pictures finally

Ok, I'm sorry, I just took some pictures. All the pictures that I took while up at Diver's Den are out on photo bucket. I thought I put a link in, does it work?

My work schedule hasn't allowed me to do much. They are in the tank acclimated and doing well. I even forgot to take the salt out of the truck. Hmmm 4 days in the truck in this cold weather, with snow/rain and whatever else we've had am wondering if it's still gone be good to use.

Here's a couple quick FTS and a close-up of a coral with 2 greyish black "blobs" for lack of a better word, on one of my corals. I don't recall seeing it last night. Any clue what it is?

Ok time to post some pics.

Top left, close up of the 2 blobs.
Top right, FTS
Bottom left, Mr. Purple's new home address: 1 Shell Lane, Tankville, USA, 12345. Sorry no phone for you to call him LOL (water/elec don't mix hehehe)
Bottom right, Front left of tank.

Wow. You have a good amount of corals now. They seem to be everywhere lol. I think I have the same zooas in the bottom right shot, the mint green looking ones. They grow like a weed by the way.
