I've got plenty of polypropelene netting for sale. I constructed my cover with that and PVC quarter round pieces.

it has been a while that I keep hearing napping from my tank.
at first i thought they were my hermits' shell hitting on the glass, but I found out everytime there is a napping sound, there's no hermits around the glass, and last night I spot some kind of small pistol shrimp like creature showing its claw and head from one of my LR, so now I believe I have a pistol shrimp.

XP just I never see it when light is on, well actually I never see it in my tank.
my red light didn't give me a clear look of it last night, will try it again today. XP

There is always hope.. ;D

I see my tiger pistol shrimp every once in a while when i catch him offgaurd while turning on the lights. He always jets back in to one of his holes though. Really awesome creature. I hear him all the time at night though. He is always snapping at something.. but as long as a i hear him doing that.. i know he is alive and well lol. And not dead and decaying somewhere under the sand lol.

^^ thanks

Here r what I have now

fishes: 2 clowns 1 neon goby 2 firefishes(1 killed by the other 2 I believe.)
inverts: 11 netrite snails 11 nass 7 hermits 2 peppermints
corals: green star polyps, pom pom xenia, yellow polys, clove polys, and tiny blue low light coral which I don't know the name and some polys that came with my LR

gonna add pink spotted watchman with pistol shrimp later

updated:
my snails r working so hard to clean off all my diatoms!! (happy)
my hermits keep molting to scare to **** of me......
my clowns r so funny they host a corner of my tank every night.
my neon goby finally know I m its owner and will come out for food.
firefish just love to nap off other fire tail.......
coraline algea keep growing slowly~ still nothing on the glass, all on the two pipes I got at the corner and on LR
believed mangroves started working since the roots r getting bigger and crazier~ alos nitrate dropped from forever 20 to 10, hopefully will get lower!!
