It's turned into such a jungle lately and i know it will be a good half hour or more of trimming and replanting to get it back to a point where i can see anything. I can spend 15 minutes pulling out clumps of green hair algae and still not see much difference in how much is present. The Kuhli's appreciate an overgrown tank though. They can be seen dangling from leaves throughout the tank like ornaments on a christmas tree. I'm contemplating doing a rescape on their tank at this stage and seeing if i do only have the 1 cherry shrimp alive in the tank.
Welcome to the jungle... I have been saying that about my tanks a lot lately, lol.

Kuhlis like to eat shrimp. I had an experience where I had about 200 shrimp and added the little bunch of baby Kuhlis, and they grew so nice and strong and hungry. I think the shrimp were like potato chips, you can't eat just one and with something like five little ones I rarely ever saw new shrimp babies grow up. Catching them was the problem, I had a heck of a time accomplishing that. Finally had to take and redo the tank when I moved to get them all. I was in the middle of selling off the shrimp in the tank and there was never a recovery because the little buggers ate them up...fast.

Though the Kuhlis sound very happy there, next time take a few pics, lol, I would get a laugh out of seeing them dangling!

Oh and I am gonna try to add the sticky tape to the new light and then the 12G Rimless garden!

Yay for babies!!! And new shrimp. The Rhino ones are so interesting!

Well I got a collector Urchin (Tripneustes gratilla) have seen it called Halloween and he is orange and green and black and brown. Pretty much looks just like the one on wikipedia. I have to head to work, and will post the acclimation pic tonight or in the morning. I have to get a bunch of sea grass for him to eat and maybe algae wafers. I only have one plantlet of Turtle grass and it isn't very big, maybe 2-3 leaves and 4 inches tall atm. Right now it is feeding on the algae on the glass. I have been saving it up for him, lol.

60 % clean on my elephant nose tank, algae scrub.
I had to be careful as I have lot's off baby rcs, and had visions of me sucking them up! My elephant nose has scratched himself again so I think it's time for a bigger pipe.
