the 2 scarlet skunk shrimp love to steal mysis shrimp and zooplankton when i feed the clowns and the peppermint has a nice bloom of aptasia to feed on as well as stealing some mysis and zooplankton

the crabs are all very small and constantly graze the rocks and have been doing fine for over 2 months now lots of empty shells for them to play in and they have even molted a few times.

Snails do the same they crawl along the glass and the fighting conch's are doing a great job on shifting my 4" sand bed.

All the shrimp have molted at least once and been doing great, really friendly 2 and love to clean my hand.

so i dont think i have to much for a CUC when they are doing an ok job not a great job.

i would do some large water changes and cut back on the feeding. way too many nutrients in that tank. you can use a product called "chemiclean" by boyd enterprises (not to be confused with "red slime remover") to remove the red slime. i've used it before on customers tanks with success, but if you don't get the nutrient level down, the cyano will come back.

I upgraded the lighting a while ago and I dont know the name of the fixture, came in a blank box no brand name but the bulbs are Odyssey brand heres pictures of it tho since people have been asking me in the chatroom about them

3 switchs to control the blues, whites and LEDS
1 power cord
the lights tip back and also with the small plastic holder you can put them on a tilted angle so you can still work in the tank without moving the lights right out of the way.
Each bulb is 39W
12000k daylights








Hope those help
