Take the shrimp out before it starts decomposing. To leave it in is beyond unnecessary and just plain icky to clean/smell.

No probs Shane, btw I think my tank is done cycling, I checked my readings yesterday and Ammonia + Nitrite both are 0, so I'm going to do PWC tonite. so excited.

I also learn something new today, just found out that clown fish is also a damsel

It was not bad advice. Even though I agree with James as far as taking it out in this case many of us left ours in till it disolved. If your ammonia gets high enough you can remove it but if not like mine you just leave it in.

Thanks , I'm still battling between astrea snails and turbo snails, dunno the difference yet, and some hermit crabs.

However once everything is okay, I will start adding extra CUC that I want, the emerald crabs, fire shrimp and the cleaner shrimp .

U?

Nassarius Snails (FIVE)
Astraea Conehead Snails (TWO)
Cerith Snails (TWO)
Nerite Snails (TWO)

I decided not to get crabs because im just not sure about them. I still have alot of reading to do about them and how they will fit into the big picture. Im still working on the numbers, but im getting close to a lineup.
