Received my refractor. Also bought the solution. Instant ocean came too. The fish net also arrived Have to buy another. It's too big. The nets that sold are nylon with plastic coating handle. I hope that's safe.

Yes. I'm going to buy the pen. The water that I will buy is not going to be cheap and I want to make sure that it's what they say it is. I'm following your list, so I can't go wrong.

I got a salt bag with a measuring cup that way you don't need a meter :tongue:
I've seen this awesome guy on youtube keep these shrimp in full sea water and they seemed to be doing amazing! ..... I really do think they can live in a variety of conditions! :tongue:

Oh yes, I'm sure. The fact is, I'm more of a worrier and have to be very exacting when dealing with living creatures. If I think that I'm not doing the right thing, I'll worry, worry, worry, worry. In other words, nuts! :wink:

Oh yeah but just buy a meter if you can... i couldn't get one here and i didn't want something from china in my aquarium.
But these creatures live in such variable conditions in the wild that they probably don't care all that much.... They are not computers or robots who need a specific voltage and not one volt less or more :smile:

I have some problems that I can't solve. I have to put things on hold for now. I'm enjoying reading about all of your Opies. This is the best Board.
