I think you will have enough beauty in your tank with the mandarin, just make your screen saver a harlequin shrimp and you can get your "fix" from that lol.
The more I think about it the more i don't think i could do it. LOL It was just a thought.

Lol well they sure are pretty. You have a little bit till you start stocking anyways, you will think of something I'm sure. When will the pod tank be up and running?

What about sexy shrimps?? I have one in my tank now and he is very cute, small but cute. I really like the blood shrimps too, their color is amazing.

I still have to wait for the fry that are in it to grow big enough to trade in. Probably a couple weeks. I wasn't intending on getting the mandarin til much later, it'll be one of the last things I put in I bet.

Sexy shrimp good to have? I was thinking on getting a shrimp but i dont want peppermints, I got 4 in my main tank lol

I like mine but you have to know where to find him haha he hangs out on my frogspawn all day and only ventures out at night. I will probably get one more once my LFS gets them in. If you want one you will see more I'd def recommend the blood shrimp.

Is your LFS going to hold the mandarin for you?? Or are you just going to wait until they have another one eating the frozen foods?

He had 3 last time I was in. He gets all ORA fish, thats where I got my b&w's. I'm not that close to buying one anyway, I'm guessing two to three months maybe. :-(

Ohh okay makes sense, and only 45 for one then?? Thats pretty good, my LFS charges 80 for the ORA mandarins. Only 20-30 for the regular ones though and they usually eat just as good.

I just had an idea. I have 70lbs of LR in my 55g right...So what if i take out say 15lbs of it and put it in the cube? I intend on buying from reefcleaners their 50lb box of base rock. Soooo, I put 15lbs in my 55g, 30 lbs into the cube and 5lbs of rubble for cubes compartment.

Does this sound like a good way to avoid a cycle? I also bought a bag of live sand and I wanna add a bottle of Bio Spira. I've actually had some luck with that product in helping cycling.

I don't intend on putting anything in for a few weeks but I'd like it to be cycled. then i may add a shrimp and a couple cuc guys. I don't wanna risk designer clowns until I'm sure its stable.

Thoughts my friends?
