Here's pics & information on my Nano Cube 6. I completely gutter the back of the tank and added lava rock. The grill that the water would flow through was cut out to allow the shrimp to access the rear. Single sponge filter and heater.

Size 6 Gallons/23L
Temp: Varies 76F-80F
Diet: Supplemental feedings of spirulina
Dried guava leaves
Approximately 200 Opae Ula
(9) Nerite Snails
Trumpet snails

The snail? It was one I was told that would eat the algae. In all honesty i'm not sure what type it is. I asked for nerites & this one was in with the 5 I bought. It's been in the tank for maybe 4 months now.

That's an awesome tank you have there, is it ocean rock on the top layers?

Thank you. The tank is filled with live rock. I think it's Fiji(?). I had the tank empty for a year before I finally decided to fill it with the opae ula. That was the goal. I had not seen any berried females this May 2, 2017. I think they hang out in the back of the tank with all of the lava rock.

They seem nice and red and very active so you have done a great job with the tank.
