So... What should I do next? I don't see any problems with it, but what would be a cool upgrade? I have a lot of eggcrate, and spare time lol. Doesn't have to be eggcrate though.

My next plan is a hang on fuge it will be pretty cool I think. And the reason I'm doing hang on is because then I don't have to buy another light. I have plenty of overflow light from my fixture

nice! i dont think i need that at the moment though. i just made a brine shrimp hatchery out of a masonry jar. i might turn it into a phyto plankton jar instead though, whichever is cheaper probably.

LOL yeah its an expensive hobby! I want a blue mandarin I know I already have a good size pod population cuz nothing eats them but I want it to go through the roof before I get one because that's pretty much all mandarin eat. So it can't just be a good population now I have to sustain it

thats the right way to think! and ya way too expensive, but things are getting cheaper through the years. just to let you know, i have a scooter blenny, which is much like the mandarin and has the same reqs. I have leaned it on to mysis shrimp. it wasnt that hard and it would be a good idea to buy one that already eats prepared. but just in case he decides to go on strike, its always great to have a good supply of pods. i personally like the green mandarin the most, along with the red scooter blenny, i have the regular scooter though
