I moved over 50 larvae from the 140 breeding tank to the #02 larvae tank and here is a few shots, they are hard to see but there are around 120ish in there now?

As i posted in my 140 liter tank thread i have moved the new larvae into larvae tank #02, most of the previous batches are now little fully formed shrimps that are just hanging out on the back wall together. I took a quick photo to show you some of them congregating near the heater:

And a Photo of some of the new larvae i have added today!

How do you plan on dealing with the hair algae? If it is from the load of opae do you feel that if you did not feed you would not get the hair algae? I was dealing with this myself and sill have it in my 6 gallon. I'm trying to figure out how to better deal with it. For now any that show up I just pull it.

Reduce light and feeding, removing hair algae by hand and dosing biodigest should do it until i can lower numbers by selling a few :happy:
